They just got a huge review in Time magazine if anyone wants to check that out.

Have not heard much although I dont see any crime in a good pop-hook album once in a while.

I agree. Ab-sol-bloody-tootly-lutely*

* maybe I should go get some sleep now before I feel like getting creative with words again

But I do agree with what you say. Like the Kaiser Chiefs. What's so wrong with 'Employment' being a 'fun' album? Why should a 'fun' album be somehow lesser than a 'serious' one? Surely we all like both serious AND fun songs?

It's funny cause I've heard a lot about them here and elsewhere online... but MuchMusic here in Canada hasn't really played them at all... and I haven't heard anybody talking about them either in person or in the newspaper.

So yeah... they may be big over there from all the hype... but they haven't done much over here from what I can tell.

I have listened to about half the album, and it's definitely fun, but I fail to see how it's THAT much stronger than albums from other bands in their genre.

If anyone has not heard the Sugababes' version of ' I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' yet you must.

They've got that cool electro-pop vibe going on and they marry it to the pseudo dance punk of Arctic Monkeys. It's awesome.

Totally agree with this post.... I just bought their CD today and I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised! I really do like them... There are some songs that are like "what the heck were they thinking?" but most of the album is great. It is a totally fun album!

They're ok, but I find them to be pretty average. They sound just like every other NME-ish rock band that has cracked the mainstream.

I mean, I don't think they're bad by any means, but I can't understand for the life of me how they've managed to have the fastest selling debut ever.

I totally agree - and I'd like to add that I highly doubt that they'll do just as well outside of Britain.

I'm listening to the album for the first time now, it's better than I thought it would be. Admittedly none of the songs blow me away, but it's good catchy music - I like it.

I think they're not even average. I don't find them relevant in any aspect. In fact, I don't like them.
IMO this is just another desperate opportunity from the british musical press to find another great british band as in the past...
...as it happened with Kaiser Chiefs, Interpol, Arcade Fire, etc. You can see the example of what happened with the 90's bands: Oasis - sucessful but still remaining in the same way, Blur - tried to be' on their own' but a Gorilla is punching them now, Suede and Pulp - who are them, in fact?
Poor ones...

What do Interpol and the Arcade Fire have to do with anything? They're from the USA and Canada...

Yeah, I just remembered to refer them as long as the european press has been talking much too about this and other breakthrough bands, but I admit they're off context, sorry

If the album cover is any indication, the hype is not warranted.

However, it was one of the three new albums I downloaded (the others being Broken Social Scene and the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs) today so we'll see. I haven't heard even the leadoff single so it's going to be a completely new experience.

But the album cover does suck.
