I've never really understood the praise this band has received.

I've understood the praise, more than that of some other groups anyway. As I said before I don't think they have done a classic album yet, but I think they could be capable of doing one. So they unlike nearly every other hyped group deserve a bit of hype.

At first I didn't mind Fleet Foxes. I got that EP. It was decent. Now I freakin hate them. I got satellite radio in my car and usually stick to the XMU station where they play all the latest indie stuff...every other freaking song is the Fleet Foxes. I don't know why people have such a huge boner over them...they are nothing special at all.

The new album hasn't really grown on me the way I thought it would, it seems to fall short of my expectations. Although it is a good album for me it doesn't come close enough to the benchmark set by their debut and their Sun Giant EP. It's probably one of those albums that will take a long time to grow on you so I'll probably have a better view on it in a few months time.

The first album might be slightly better, but even if you don't consider them 'special' perhaps you would consider them good at times at least. And if they have done some good songs that is a good thing, better than quite a few hyped groups.

I did consider them to be at least good. The thing is, I don't like it when "just good" bands are shoved down my throat as if they were the next big thing. It just annoys me and then I can't listen to that band anymore.

That's fanboyism, I did a thread on that somewhere. Yeh it can get annoying, I'm not sure Fleet Foxes fans are the worst at that though.
