"Also, the bandís international flavor scared me because I hate culture and everything attached to it."

care to explain that quote a little further?

anyway a friend of mine played this band when we were playing cards and they seemed pretty okay, i've got the chance to watch them at a festival next weekend, anyone know if they're good live?

culture usually implies learning. Learning usually implies reading or like doing math problems or something. I hate reading and I hate learning. But most of all I hate math.

Also, the band’s international flavor scared me because I hate culture and everything attached to it.

I laughed at that. Not like a pity laugh, though, because I hate culture too. :-d

I love this album, a lot, but for the first time ever I'm not going to bitch about your score. I think it's a very nice review and the score definitely fits, I think.

Freaking fantastic live...

they were my second or third favorite set at Lolla...

crazy good

Great review. This album is very addictive. My favorites are Two Steps Twice, Balloons, and Cassius.

Foals' music videos are very weird, the lead singer does some weird shit with his hands, but interesting nonetheless.
