They have more than one song, as much as this one has blown up.

“Singles” is a fantastic album and, after looking into their older stuff, most of that is pretty good as well. I’m admittedly biased, but I think it’ll take one more album before you can decide if they’ll stick in the limelight or not.

I saw them on the 9th. Fantastic show.

Didn’t hurt being surprised by Dan Boeckner’s new(ish) band either. I knew I had heard of Operators before but couldn’t place where.

Really liked Lateness of Dancers by Hiss Golden Messenger.

Sums the second album up perfectly; a great, beautiful album that doesn’t really break the mold the xx have made for themselves. And I’d argue that’s a good thing, though a more grandiose, swelling xx would be quite interesting.

But I can’t help but feel that everyone is a little hypocritical in saying that. Look at Beach House’s last two albums. You could practically mix and match songs from both and make a new album that sounds no different. But something about the xx’s emptiness so-to-speak in their songs makes everyone rant and rave about how they haven’t grown or evolved and that Coexist is worse for it.

went to the comments before reading the article. Knew there’d be a figurative shitstorm.

Not when the first is stated as though it’s a fact.

Loved the album. Thought a few songs were a little too dense for my liking, but I felt the same when “Today’s Supernatural” came out and now it’s stuck in my head 24/7, for all the good reasons, mind you. So I’m sure I’ll come around. “Applesauce” is fucking glorious though.

There’s a difference between saying “it’s among the worst songs I’ve ever heard” and “I don’t like that song, really just because I don’t like Deakin’s voice”.

One downgrades the music itself while the other merely expresses an opinion, which of course you’re entitled to. Learn the difference; a lot of people have to, so you’re not alone.

Is there really a guy with a Hitler-stache around :48? Or do I just want to finally see real life Hipster-Hitler?

god dammit. I started listening to muse around when BHaR came out and, despite their last album being more Queen than Muse in my mind, I had high hopes for the album.

I’m not impressed with either song. Muse has finally dissapeared up their own pretentious asses.

By the way, anyone see that Chris (the bassist) is going to be singing lead on at least 2 of the record’s songs? I’m gonna withhold judgement till I hear them, but Bellamy is many things, an amazing vocalist being chiefly among those. Seems like a horrible move to put in a different singer to me.
