Why so much hate?
there's always a natural suspicion/dislike from indie types whenever a certain band/album receives 'next big thing' levels of hype.
A lot of 'I don't see what the fuss is about..." threads.
the chances of people not liking them increases
someone posting "i don't see what the fuss is about" isn't the same as someone saying "Worse than hitler".
who called Slowdive worse than Hitler?
but you know fair enough if you do. I was intreuiged by the hype and DLed the album to have a taster, but it bored the hell out of me and got deleated after about 5 listens.
In the same way that I like Midlake, who seem to be greeted with general indifference round these parts. I guess you have to be in the right mood for it. It won't change the world but it's a nice stopgap until the 'lake release a new one. Much better than Bon Iver too if we're going to talk hype.
Each to their own, eh?
and certainly not worthy of the hype and the "amazing album" tag that has been put on it.
But that's just me.
but it's not for everyone.
But for those who do like it it's of high quality.
Oliver James is such a good song!
