More than a month after x&y is released, and I am underwhelmed.

really.
I gave it alot of chances.
but it's just so obvious, and ultimately boring.
speed of sound is just too much like clocks for me.
fix you is too much like the scientist for me.
white shadows is on unforgettable fire, right?
etc. etc.

maybe without all the hype surrounding it it would be tolerable, but man....just so underwhelming.


it's like a song like fix you could've been huge, but those lyrics.....see, you walk a fine line with a song like that; u2 could've pulled it off because the lyrics probably would've been better (although in the last 5 years their lyrics have sometimes been crap also).

"when you lose something you can't replace"

it's one step away from a bon jovi power ballad.


anyways, dissappointed.

Such a shame, I held them in the highest regard. They got lazy.

As per the guidelines of the forum, if you don't like a thread's topic don't come into it and sledge it, rather go and make an appreciation topic.

I dont, at all.

Why did we need yet another thread on this?

As King of Interference I declare that no reason need be given.

I think so, although, in my book that doesn't make it bad, it's one of my favourites on the album.

I feel like my thread is different.

here's why:

when the album came out, there was instant backlash, and there was instant praise. fights broke out, discussions turned ugly, and cats began sleeping with dogs.

so I took a step back.

I listened to the album. listened again. again. (you get the idea).


so now after a month of giving it a chance, I've decided to give my opinion on a hottly debated topic.
if you don't like the topic, don't respond and this thread will quickly be forgotten.

I'm not saying the platinumness gives it any merit. I'm saying it's a nice piece of trivia.

I couldn't care less how many records they sell.
