Are they too popular to be considered cool?

After I heard both Time to Pretend and Electric Feel I had to get the whole album of Oracular Spectacular. It is Spectacular.

Discuss.

Kind of watched them at Reading from the bar near where they were playing. Seemed ok.

I like the 2 singles, quite a lot really, particularly Electric Feel. I downloaded the album but thought it was lame and binned most of it.

I think Kids is the best song on the album, and the other singles are great too, but yeah, a lot of it is filler.

The Youth is great too.

i think there's ony two strong songs on the album and they are really only interesting because of the production.

I find it interesting that a band whose music is fairly conventional american college rock is willing to take a plunge into production that mixes bits of electronica and electro. It would never have happened five years ago. I'm not sure whether to like it or not to be honest - I wouldn't normally listen to that kind of music but if they've done their bit in trying to come closer to me maybe I should give them the benefit of the doubt?

One of my favourites this year. Heavy rotation on the old ipod a couple of months back.

Please do not like them, I wouldn't be able to live with myself.

SB spends so much time thinking about if he likes music and why and whether it's good or bad - he almost could be a german.

I am a student of Musikwissenschaft after all. Every single one of the significant originators of the discipline were German. (Or Austrian.)

Of course, I know how hard it is to be german.
