I was really expecting to like this band since the only two members were both in The Prayers and the Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower. Those were really great bands that I felt were awesome and underappreciated. This is a really lame band that is not awesome and is over appreciated. Rolling Stone says you should “buy it now,” which is something you shouldn’t do at all. If you’ve never heard Echo & the Bunnymen or Jesus And Mary Chain this might be new, but, unlike those bands, it’s not exciting.
