A indie band that Pitchfork doesn't jerk off. They're good for that reason alone.
why are you awful at living?

Pitchfork is crap. That being said so is the the prevailing mentality on this site that the more accessible or hook driven a band is the better they are. Also calling band on a major label who did a record with a mainstream pop producer "indie" shows how dumb using the term indie as a genre is.

So this debuted with more sold than "Some Nights" did?... Geez. How?

I gave the album a listen, and it's alright, but I didn't think it was anything spectacular.

The only song I have heard from these guys is It's Time and that song is very grating / annoying to me. Not a fan of the lyrics or the instrumentation in several parts of the song. Comes off as someone trying to write something catchy but it really isn't very catchy to me.

Holy Shit. Good for them, guess signing to Interscope was a good choice. New album is pretty damn good as well, it appears as if the label gave them a lot of freedom which is good.

Definitely not spectacular, but its definitely a good album. I think their next one will be stronger, mostly because it will be written as a cohesive whole rather than taking some EP songs and writing some new ones

Good way of putting it. Trying to write something poppy which additionally automatically seems to mean the lyrics have to be bland, pointless, and interchangeable.

The album is great. Bought it on a whim. I love the tracks that were from old EPs so I did not mind the, being on their cause for a major label debut they put up their best work. Radioactive is great as ever but I loved new songs too. Bleeding Out is such fucking jam.

To be honest Its Time is not even close to my favorite song on the album. I really just sorta got into this band with this album so it may be a bad reference but I think Radioactive, Top of The World, Bleeding Out, and Nothing Left To Say are the best songs. Each one are very different too.
