that affected, wimpy voice is so grating and they're just aping the cure.
do people really dance to them?
i agree, they are fucking shit and have wasted a GREAT NAME!
to the Cure.
I really like them. They write great pop songs you can dance to. So what if their sound isn't 100% original?
its pretty easy.... i hate black kids, i wish black kids were all dead
The intro to 'I'm not gonna teach...' kept popping up in my head, which is obviously bad if you hate the song. Infectiously stinky..
and crapper live.
Utter dross! So are mgmt!
at least its got tune and yeah, you could probably dance to it, altho i would choose not to.
I don't think they sound that much like The Cure, I just find them boring as fuck.
They don't sound remotely like The Cure.
You might just as well say that the singer sounds like Kevin Rowland.
I'm at a loss with half the new bands coming out at the moment. What the fuck are A & R men on these days?
but if i wanted to listen to something like them, id just listen to the cure.
on account of their awful horrible name. its really uncool
but nah, don't mind them when they come on the radio. I'd rather hear Jo Whiley play them, when I'm trying to work, than tuneless dross like Sigur Ros.
it seems like many people are realising the fact that this band is pure crap. i listened to a few of their songs once. big mistake.
I haven't heard anything else.
great album and really fun live
worst band i saw in '07 by a mile and a mile
PLEASE SOMEONE MAKE THEM GO AWAY!ARGHH!!!
I've seen them live twice and they were good both times. That free e.p was fairly solid too. This (Pitchfork influenced?) backlash seems unmerited. It isn't like they're Razorlight...
Not amazing by any means, and the album is overproduced to fuck but I enjoyed them when I saw them live. They needed more songs. Everything was going fine and the crowd were really getting themselves worked and then OVER.
The guy can't sing for shit, though.
able to sing isn't exactly a prerequisite to making good music. Neil Young agrees with me.
the album. I don't give a fuck if they're any good live because I'll never buy tickets to see them, I don't like them that much. But the album's good so I like them.
I liked the EP although it got very worn out after a few listens, the production on their debut album seems slightly over-done and soulless.
They had to live up to quite a hype too, so people were expecting more than what we got.
Awful, awful, awful. They are mind-numbingly derivative, but that's not my main reason for hating them. The lead singer and their backing singers are all totally tuneless and just hearing them sing makes me want to rip my ears off. Their songs are excruciating. I can't understand why so many people are raving about them. They are on a par with The Wombats for my worst band of the last two years.
They are giving black kids a bad name. And only two of them are black anyway! I wonder if i could sue them under the trades descriptions act....
