Hey dfelon, you're in this flowchart:

beautiful. Dfel, I can somewhat understand your issues with "Red Dress" and "Dancing Choose." Those songs will probably be the ones I love the first couple times then get sick of. But I don't get your issue with "Golden Age." That song is gold.

It's a golden turd. Shiny and pretty but artificial. I don't like most of their overly upbeat tracks. They feel forced.

Desperate Youth doesn't even sound like an album. It sounds like Young Lairs with a few extra tracks.

Nice review. I liked the comment on Return to Cookie Mtn., that album gets far more hate than it deserves. I can't wait for this.

Wow, there's been some fascinating discussion going on here.

The flow chart ruled.

That has to be the best flow chart I've seen in years, in fact ever.

That flowchart is made of delicious pie. As is this album.

How? Name five bands that sound like them.
They are just a watered down version of Q and not U with really forced soul overtones. But that is just my silly opinion. Some other similar bands, And you will know us by the trail of dead, Bloc Party, Bad Brains, The Velvet Teen (early). I might have missed the mark entirely but there will be plenty of flames for this statement coming soon.

I might be off base, but it is not make those claims because some of those bands have black members. Aren't you being inadvertently racist by pointing that out?

Ignoring the fact that TVotR don't really sound like any of those bands, the fact that you can say they sound like them in spite of the fact that those bands dont really sound alike would pretty much tell me that they aren't generic.
