I said people I know , not people on here. I know people have their own tastes , but that doesn`t explain why people like something.

I`m only asking why people think it`s such a good album thats all , You think it`s a good album , fair enough. I`m only asking whats so great about it.
^ We dont really need to say WHAT it is we love about it. We just do. It's like everything else. Some people can't see what others see in certain things. It's just how it is. We don't need to get all scientific here, it's just music. Now all that being said, I like some of those choices you listed, most notably being Joy Division.

I agree with you on that. But at the same time, we were just answering the dudes question. We all said we liked it, so its hard to be diverse when we all agree on what he was saying.

haha, I have noticed that. I just hope they dont get beat to death, and become the one band everyone wants to talk about, then soon, idiots adopt it, and yadda, yadda, all downhill from there.

Someone who likes Belle and Sebastian calling another band monotonous. I think I've heard it all now...

Seriously i`ve seen so many normal rightminded people go nuts about this album declaring it the best thing ever , people who`s opinions & tastes I normally hold dear , wetting themselves over it like R Kelly at a primary school.

Yet it`s one of the dullest things i`ve ever heard, there are already a million bands that sound like this lot , what are they doing to deserve such praise?
Seriously every song to me just sounds like a monotonous drone.The thing just has no life in it.Easily the most over rated album i`ve heard since the first Interpol album.
I'm possibly going to get flamed for agreeing with this, but this is exactly my experience of this lot to a tee. The most resepcted of friends musical-taste-wise, who have introduced me to the most beautiful and wonderful bands, have claimed this the best album to come out this year. I just don't see how/where/when/why.... maybe I'll listen to it again...

The most overrated thing since interpol in general, imo.
