miss their earlier sound a lot...
Digging: IDYLLS - Prayer for Terrene
Pre boring agrd
Digging: Nero di Marte - Derivae
Band is extremely pretentious.
I liked it a decent bit, but apparently Dan has lost his guitar.
I loved that teaser but the song is nothing new or special for the band.
Digging: Somos - Temple of Plenty
Band is extremely pretentious. 
why do they even bother naming the songs
how boring. never got the allure of this band.
Digging: Mike Will Made-It - Ransom
why do they even bother naming the songs 
Band rules. pretty stoked.
Song is good. Looking forward to this.
Digging: Hey Rosetta! - Into Your Lungs (And Around in Your Heart and on
Sounds so music
well that was tame...
Digging: Modern Witch - Unknown Domain
band sucks. no shock
about fucking time
When did they become so contemporary and boring? Latest album showed a few missteps, but this. Damn...
Digging: St. Vincent - St. Vincent
Band is completely and utterly pretentious 
Well this is disappointing. Very pedestrian.
Digging: Banks - Goddess
Band hasn't been good since Magic Potion
meh, brothers was still great
ITT pretentious and bitter people
the phrase "jumped the shark" comes to kind...
Digging: Mitski - bury me at makeout creek
"ITT pretentious and bitter people"
trying to justify alternating opinion by accusing everyone else of being pretentious or bitter, classic sputniking
Attack & Release and Brothers were both much better than Magic Potion
I'm pretty sure you people don't know what pretentious means.
Digging: The Twilight Sad - Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave
"trying to justify alternating opinion by accusing everyone else of being pretentious or bitter, classic sputniking"
didn't say anything about my opinion. putting words in other people's mouths, classic sputniking.
snarky comment war, let's do it.
these dudes are cool and have a nice discog but im so burnt out on em. oh well!!!
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.
how about we stop overusing the word "pretentious"
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.
how about we stop overusing the word "pretentious" 
The only thing more pretentious than this band is their fans.
so now they became utter shit? well, that's sad
They've come a long way from that little basement studio in Akron.
No, but really, what happened to these guys?
ASnardReturns I don't give a fuck about the Black Keys
either.but you just need to overall shut yer pie hole
Digging: Viet Cong - Viet Cong
The song was missing "something" but I still enjoyed most of it before I realized it went nowhere
can we just skip to the part where they release a pretty good new album
The use of the word "utterly" bothers me more than the use of "pretentious"
what the fuck is going on the comments right now...
omg WOW this song is very pretentious. like WOW .
Digging: Raresh - Fabric 78
Wayyyy too bland... what happened to this band? The blues influence is totally gone
Digging: D'Angelo - The Black Messiah
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
good morning everyone!
Why did Mike Tyson reveal this?
Probably bit someone's ear off to get the spot
you're better than that
pretty average song
one could even say its "pretentious"
gees sputnik, just gees.
i like the song, it's catchy as hell, if anything.
hoping that besides the pop there's some psychedelia in the new album.
song isnt that great but dam so much hate for this band i dont really get it thyere a pretty decent rock and roll band not amazing but pretty solid like if i was at a bar and they were playing id be like o this is pretty good man
They sound like Depeche Mode now...
they sound like shit now
Do we really need another AM? Where's the rock n roll swagger? The fuzzy, crunchy, sexy guitar riffs? Yo, this is boring. Not pretentious. Just straight up bland.
They sound like Depeche Mode now...
Don't even think of insulting Depeche mode like that.
fuck depeche mode
fuck depeche mode
Where do you live? I'm coming to kill you.
Depeche Mode rules.
Snide likes Depeche Mode, doesn't seem to fit his criteria.
