This band grated on me in the first place.

Default hmmm

it's hard to say, i basically agree with the "flash in the pan" sentiment, however I wouldn't totally dismiss them that quickly. Here's the deal, VW is not a great band (at least yet they're not), and it's not a GREAT debut album as far as amazing debut albums go (doesn't hold a candle to the Strokes "is this it?" or Biggie's "ready to die") But it's good indie pop, they have an interesting sound with the Soweto influence and we'll all just have to wait and see how prolific they'll really be (I honestly don't think that much)

But I bought the album, I like it. Will I go see a VW reunion show it 20 years? No. But they're worth 10 bucks...and yea, the album is already getting old. It doesn't have staying power.

I'm not a fan boy, nor do I think VW are the best thing since sliced bread. I'm merely trying to be objective here. It may not be to your liking, but to claim repeatedly that they "suck" can be a tad irksome when you can't actually suggest a better indie-pop alternative.

this band isn't the greatest, but i have to give them credit. i am so burnt out on indie pop/rock, but these guys can hold my attention. also, i saw them live a few months back, and they were great. i can't blame for taking advantage of the hype and running with it. more power to 'em. if anything, it just means they'll get rich while hipsters continue to eat anything pitchfork feeds them, leaving everything but indie pop/rock alone

yea look, the reality of the music business or any other entertainment related business is if a hole opens up for you - you gotta shovel out as much money you can as fast as you can for as long as you can - cause you never know when that hole will close.

ya know...one thing i've noticed about people's general critiques of pitchfork is that they are, most of the time, incredibly appalling and shockingly uninformed.

one can love pitchfork, one can hate them, totally down to personal choice and affinity, but criticisms ought to be fair. crikey, i mean look at pitchfork's best new music section for the past 3 or so months. it has consisted of recommendations from all sorts of sides of the spectrum: primitivist bands, disco, noise, psych, folk, tropicalia, the range of genres has been impressive - and amidst all that, virtually no real bona fied "indie pop" at all save Vampire Weekend.

pitchfork is a review site focused on independent music of all sorts. their reviewers have opinions like all other reviewers, what is wrong with that? just because some people take their word as gospel doesn't make that pitchfork's fault. hating on pitchfork seems more of a bandwagon than anything else. like, it's supposed to be cool or something. well, it isn't cool, and it's not particularly funny either. and it comes across as being entirely idiotic when the claims made aren't even rooted in actual reality.
