Not attacking you or anything--don't worry. The band might kick ass, and I guess I'll find out soon enough. But to that estimation I only have one thing to say:

Wow...?

Oops. I meant, "Who the fuck cares?"

haha yeah you're so funny. I've been to funerals that have been funnier than your last post.

well that quote i put gives you some kind of idea of the hype and fuss caused by the band in question, especially for those who haven't heard any of their stuff yet.

didn't think that small slice of information was going to cause you so much offence. sorry.

Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was.

It's inevitable they will be "huge" this year, but sadly it looks as though it will be due to them being extremely over-hyped rather than producing quality music.

Im not putting them down because they are going to be successful (believe me, Id really like to say I like them, but I can't stand any of the songs Ive heard one bit).
I just don't see anything special about this band at all, I really don't.

Hopefully the Arctic Monkeys will prove me wrong and actually be quite good, but I somehow doubt it.

To quote one of those user reviews from the NME site...
"If the monkeys are the Oasis for the 00's, then Im a Blur fan".

No, no, no. Sorry if I was unclear--no offense whatsoever taken on my part. I guess that if you just go with that reader quoted by Hedgehog you'll pretty much get what I was going for. Album sales just don't really say too much about quality in the long run, you know? I mean, Oasis sucked and sucks ass. That's all. C'est la vie.

I've never been a comical funeral, though...they any better than the normal, boring-as-fuck ones? Anything involving or parallel to me is usually a blast, so I'd be game. Just gotta keep my eyes open, I s'pose.

Remember when NME used to hype bands that were actuallty great?

Suede come to mind.

As do Verve.

Blur.

Arctic Monkeys? How can you name your band Arctic Monkeys?

Yeah. They sound like shit as well.

Gay Day anyone?

How about Menswear?

Whatever happened to The Vines, the Australian band that NME was sure were going to be one of the best bands ever?

On Topic: I've only heard I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor. Think they're OK, wanna hear more before I say anything else.

It doesn't actually matter whether they're any good or not.The thing is that they've relied heavily on typical UK propaganda,which praises every new British band.
