Extremely false. You will regret saying that one day.

in what way are either of these bands lacking? they are both great debut albums, among the best of the year imo.

I don't like VW at all anymore, but I don't think it's true that they are a mere ripoff of all other indie rock bands. They certainly have their own thing going on, what with the Afropop meets indie pop hybrid. They do it in a way that makes it their own - they have their own sound...

...trouble is, it just doesn't sound very good...

Vampire Weekend has a lot of dull, uninspired songs on it which, for their sheer degree unremarkability, I would consider filler. The album's really only good for the first three songs and then maybe one or two others. By the end, you're just bored to death. As for Fleet Foxes, then again, it's just insanely boring and dull. The vocals are irritating, the harmonies are overlayered to the point of sounding mechanical and manufactured, and it suffers from that awful kind of mundane monotony where, for the most part, there's very little to distinguish one song from the next. The obvious overproduction that has gone into it has rendered any good folk elements that their raw music may have as entirely useless and undetectable. It's a record without any real heart or soul, and the only reason it's got so far is due to the hype machine having been working in overdrive to promote it.

Come on Sam, you can do better than that.
At least have an opinion to go with it.

I don't rely on hype to form opinions on music. I just thought it was a very enjoyable album.
