|Bands That Aren't Necessarily Bad But I Cant Figure Out Why Everyone Has A Serious Boner For Them|
the name says it all, please bring on the bashing for questioning the hype on these bands
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy converge, and I do listen to a shitload of bands in their genre, but I cannot figure out why Jane Doe is time and time again considered one of the best metalcore albums of all time. Please enlighten me
Yet again, a very good band but I cannot figure out what all the hype is about. Its just average indie hipster music.
I've tried to listen to them, just not doing it for me. Please explain why they are so amazing.
I listen to brand new quite often and they do have some great music but I dont think that having one great album like the devil and god are raging inside me justifies their overhyped status
|Dammit! I just made a list just like this|
|I agree with you here, except for 4. :P|
People keep rec'ing 1 to me but it just sounds like normal metalcore to me... nothing too original or amazing...
2. just piss me off. I don't know why but they really do.
I have to be in the right mood to enjoy 3... they're still alright though.
I do love 4, though i would agree they are overrated, deja was their best IMO.
|brand new have 2 amazing albums, one very good and one above average.|
converge writes some of the most interesting and challenging music in the genre, and are always changing and trying to outdo themselves. the energy, virtuosity, songwriting and lyrical skill this band has is breathtaking
but then i'm a huge converge fan
|1 and 3 are really, really good bands. the other 2 i'm indifferent towards|
|Sigur Ros, because their music is almost tearfully beautiful and enchanting|
Brand New have more than one great album. They have four
|1, 3 and 4 are the tits you're obviously listening wronggg|
|I used to feel that way about Converge until I listened to Axe to Fall like three times in a row and they finally clicked. I wouldn't say they're one of the best or my favorite bands ever, but I finally thoroughly enjoy their music.|
Never been a big fan of post-rock or the indie hipster scene, so I can't comment on 2 or 3.
4 is also amazing, but I'm really only into TDAGARIM and Daisy. Deja's ok, but nothing extremely special in my mind.
