Have you heard the Sun giant EP? It has two of their best songs in my opinion, Drops in the river and Mykonos.

I listened to it two nights ago. I'll probably have to listen again...

I really do not see the appeal of this band. I'm nominating it 'Most Ovverated 2008'

Eh. The success of this album also highlights the self-congratulatory nature of indie webzines, so very proud of the wider recognition that one of their bands managed to attain that they mobilize and unite to declare a piece of garbage like this the very best album of the year - simply because it satisfied such a wide audience. I swear, had this band not been found quite as accessible and had it received a more mixed response from fans, these webzines would never have put this album at the top of a year-end list purely on the basis of the music alone. It shows to what extent politics and shrewd marketing have come to dominate the indie music scene of the later '00s.

I really cannot find a word to adequately express just how deeply I am appalled and offended that Pitchfork made this their 2008 no.1.

I agree this album was dull.

Generic and ordinary are the only compliments I can give it.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

There's nothing trendy about it. It's just not for everyone.

It's trendy, but the music wasn't made to be trendy on purpose, like a Killers or Coldplay album. Regardless though, every blog and magazine blowing Fleet Foxes all year makes them quite trendy.
