still fucking incredible. right?
It was special b/c of when it came out.
But it's just that, nothing seminal as some would make it out to be. Still good though, yeah?
is basically a 10, not anything even close to a bad song on it. I don't normally like music like it but it's underated if anything.
The Modern Age - boring
Soma - boring
Barely Legal - good
Someday - alright
Alone Together - boring
Last Nite - annoying
Hard To Explain - best song on the album
New York City Cops - good
Trying Your Luck - good
Take It Or Leave It - good
but boring in a good way? Is that even possible? Hard to explain definitely has to be the best song though.
I think the album's imbued with that hipster ennui mentality. I wouldn't say the songs are inexpressive exactly; they kind of sound like they've have been ironed flat. To some this makes it feel monotonous, to others it's a mark of the record's consistency.
They're the band it's coolest to hate, because they're 'hipsters', but in reality, they're pretty much the best band of the last decade.
Bring on da h8z.
