Sales number is way more important than rank (even if it was their lowest first week rank to date). It sold 110,000 copies first week, by FAR their lowest first week since their debut, and plummeted...

Chvrches sound like The XX?? Are you serious, or have you actually just never listened to Chvrches??

Also considering their new album is a total flop, I would say LP is definitely not "lasting...

I think this is all a testament to just how huge this band has become in the last few years. It's still amazing to me, especially considering they haven't even released anything since 2009. I...

I honestly just don't think they have it in them anymore. They're all so much older and more mature now, they can't write the same way they did when they were 20. It just sounds like five old...

I'm surprised I'm digging this so much. The first single made it sound like more of their paint-by-numbers shtick, but the rest of the album is super catchy and diverse. Liking it a lot better than...

Repetitive song structure is used to illustrate people's lives being pointless and repetitive (or a lie if you will). The constant loop and "Be Aware" on the giant cowbell also add to the propaganda...

LOL at all the people completely missing the point of this song's repetitive style.

"Started From the Bottom" is still trash, "All Me" is meh, but "Hold On, We're Going Home" is fantastic. He really needs to focus more on his R&B stuff, it suits his skills way better.

Good song, I'm just nervous that this album is going to sound like Humbug or the bad parts of Suck It and See (Brick by Brick, Don't Sit Down..., etc.). They're seriously their strongest when they...

The fact that some of their current fans were only 4 or 5 when this album came out makes me feel ridiculously old. I can't even fathom it. I was going on 14, about to enter high school, about the...

It's such a shame that he's a total scumbag. They were really one of my favorite up-and-coming bands, but now I can't listen to any of their stuff without thinking of that. They could have been...

I'm not a big Mumford fan (they have a few catchy songs, but most of their stuff is numbingly repetitive, self-aggrandizing bullshit), but this is pretty cool to see.
