on my first listen I definitely was not as impressed as I was with their debut. I'm definitely planning on giving it a few more, but I doubt it will have any affect on my opinion of it.

I voted "poor" and will be staying away from anything that reads "Vampire Weekend" in the foreseeable future.
i don't think one slightly below par album should make you hate vampire weekend.

I didn't like the first one to begin with. I'm not hating on them or their followers, they just don't do anything for me.

After further listening, I actually dig this album now. The trick was to listen to the debut first, and then this one right after so I had some kind of a warm up to it. I still think it's fairly average but I definitely like a good amount of the songs and how they really used all types of sounds and instruments for this one.

I can't get enough of Horchata. I was in a clothing store when this song started playing, and the employee there had the audacity to change the song, audibly declaring that she "couldn't stand it". I left the store without buying anything

I voted Average, Vampire Weekend had so much potential, and they sorta ruined it. It's a fun album but they haven't moved, they still remain the exact same sort of band. While the other big indie sophomore album of 2010, Congratulations by MGMT actually moved them in a new direction and showed a new side to them. Contra remains boring and uninspired.

My favorite album of 2010, from what I've heard so far. I liked it much more than their debut, which gets a little annoying after the first few times. This one is less catchy, but I like it more and more every time I hear it. I adore 'Taxi Cab', 'Diplomat's Son' and 'I think Ur a Contra".

I love the way he sings the word Horchata.... I don't know, not as good as the debut, but still a solid romp!
