vent in this thread if you think the following records are overrated:
its just not particularly good
everyone wrote them off before they even released anything
i really like the glasvegas record...
nothing not to like for sure, but nothing spectacular either. apart from nothing ever happened.
frightened rabbit remind me of snow patrol. enough said.
but I'm giving it a rest for a bit as I have heard it so so so so much even before it was released with the freakin leak and I gota promo after that. I will come back to it next year and love it again...
I enjoy Nouns too.
Not heard much of the others but enough for me to know I don't really want to go near them at all.
TVotR is kinda over rated but I can see why alot of people enjoy it, I really like it on occasions.
Fleet Foxes is so bland I don't get the hype for that at all.
M83 wasn't over rated until the DiS list, its a really nice record but number one in an end of year list is a bit over the top.
It was highly rated?
Probably right. It's still a decent album, but I don't see myself listening to it this time next year.
end of year top 10's, nme,q, mojo etc.
so yeah, it's highly rated
In that case, yes I agree with you.
2. No. Everyone thinks its rubbish now but its not. They all thought it was the best thing ever when it came out though which is almost as wrong.
3. Yeah, by the NME and the Guardian and that.
4. An unequivocal yes.
i don't think it's rubbish, i just think it's overrated. and i've had the same opinion all along. its a 6, maybe a 7 at a stretch
making a racket with distortion pedals and some pretty average songs. the pitchfork review of 'nouns' was embarassing, made it sound like a work of genius
I always thought No Age were, like, 30 or something.
wasn't that impressed
I thought they completely dominated it when I saw them. Which Shred Your Face gig did you see them at?
songs were too short, apart from eraser it was all pretty meh
I don't like No Age very much though, cheers.
I've decided to never listen to anything again that isn't Urge Overkill. Do they sound like Urge Overkill?
I like Frightened Rabbit, if that helps? Although they could do with sounding a bit more like Urge Overkill.
but only the ramones-esque guitar pop
i still have to give the other three a proper listen, frightened rabbit seems pretty boring really...
fleet foxes, mgmt and the cool kids are the three most overrated artists of 2008
bon iver is a fucking genius and anyone who backlashes against him is a philistine with more indie cred than brain cells
agreed on bon iver.
It's possible they're better on record?
