Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - overrated or not?
I'm going to say that they are, but modestly so. The debut is good, but nothing special. It has a clutch of great songs, but I just can't seem to get into the singer's voice (he sounds like Thom Yorke, except whinier, which apparently is possible). Haven't gotten into Some Loud Thunder yet, but the production is cool. :shrug:

Overrated by who? Pitchfork?

I haven't heard anyone talk these guys before, but my non-indietastic friends hate 'em, indietastic friends love 'em, so they truly are close to unrated.

1st album--Slanted & Enchanted of the 00's.

2nd album--CRAP.

I don't know if that makes them under or overrated. But you're sure as hell not hearing as much about them as you used to.

1st album - Great!
2nd album - Painfully bad!

I lean towards overrated. Third album will be the tell all.

I quite liked their first album once the singer's vocals stopped grating on me, but I probably wouldn't rush out to buy any more of their stuff. Good, but nothing special IMO.

I saw them at Lollapalooza and could not wait for their set to end. His voice, just does not do it for me.

Based on the hype I've heard and read about them, yes. Yes, they are extremely overrated.
