Jesus how is this placing so high on every single fucking end of year list? I like the Nike+ track he did but Sound Of Silver just seems to be a detached, self-satisfied exercise in genre parodies.
And All My Friends is the song of the year?! It's so anaemic! It's like a fifth-rate Joy Division with the flattest production job I've heard in ages. Maybe he was going for the minimal, sparse Factory Records sound but it just sounds weak.
Here endeth the rant. Am I missing something?
