……..so yesterday out on the highway with my lady and one of her girlfriends, playing a mix-cd that they have on the stereo. TV on the Radio come on and they are waxing enthusiastic and I’m thinking meeehhh! I don’t like the guys voice and it’s not grabbing me. Then today there is a video posted on the Atlantic Monthly’s site so I check it out.
What do smart, canny people see in this? Why do legions of hip intelligent kids think this is smart, clever, exciting, etc.???? I’m right about this……..this is humorless glum prog rock, sententious and cold, so in love with it’s own “seriousness”, so mannered and self-aware it is in sore need of a troop of chimps to throw shite at it……..you be the judge…..
