dude come on you definitely implied what your opinion was. I didn't put words in your mouth, I said you were accusing people of being bitter and pretentious. Which, by the way, is actually exactly what you did.

can we not though? can we just skip to the part where all accept that I'm right and you're wrong? cheers.

User sees people don't like a band he likes.
User proceeds to insult said people for not liking said band.

If you like the band show praise for it.
If you don't like the band show disdain for it.

But don't insult the people who listen to the music london, on either side of the spectrum.

That being said, this band is still pretentious and boring.

hahaha no. didn't mean to get you or anyone worked up with my comment, i actually like you as a user. As for my opinion, it sounds like an over-produced variation of El Camino-type material. I guess I get a little heated when people are so quick to insist that they haven't been good since their classic bluesier material. I enjoy every album of theirs so far, but El Camino marked the point where they exhausted the same musical motifs to their limits. Not that EC was bad by any means, but I was hoping that the follow up would bring some kind of welcome shift in their sound. Given what I just said about this song, I'm not entirely convinced that will be the case.

this band sucks, which is fine. usually i would just go about my business and not listen to them or even discuss them. the annoying thing is that they think they are the 'be all end all' in every interview. complaining about the more mainstream pop acts (which is so fucking futile at this point), when it clear that they just wish they were as popular and made as much money as everyone else (which is bullshit bc these dudes are very popular and probably make tons more than your average artist)

tldr these dudes make bland music and are whiny bitches
