Midlake/Fleet Foxes=bland band name...all the fuckin' same to me.

Everytime I try to listen to them I feel like there is something missing. I just cant do it.

Their new album ranks up there with new albums by Department of Eagles and Apollo Sunshine. 2008 is like the year for beautiful experimental indie psych-rock

I have to agree in a way with you....its almost like they are right there and so...damn....close...al...m..oos..damn...

Possibly frustrating at some points, but I enjoy the CD now that I have beaten it to death like I do to many of my albums... honestly I think the more I listened to it the more I enjoyed it, notice more and more details in every song.

I saw them live before I even anything by them and was impressed by their live show, although they really could use some help on the stage in between songs...too much mumbling into the microphones about things I either didn't care about, or couldn't actually hear.

I love their debut. I'll have to look into that EP.

This album was appallingly bad, and radically boring. I've never found an overhyped record this boring in all my life. It sits up there with Vampire Weekend as the most underservedly hyped album of 2008, and even Vampire Weekend was a lot less boring than this piece of garden variety horse excrement.

I completely agree with you, I can't stand to hear the Vampire Weekend s/t one more time. It's a polished turd.

From what I've heard of Vampire Weekend they're a ripoff of just about every other indie rock band out there.
