Good review Thomas, glad I'm not the only one who thinks some of this falls flat. I'm happy this band has achieved international success and I think they have some good songs, but that's about it. And on their current tour, I'm honestly more excited for Arkells than I am for them.

I'm not one of those people, but of course that's what will happen. You're putting your opinion out on a music site that covers a HUGE span of genres and it's only natural that you will be criticized at times. Such is life. I don't run around picking on staff members, I could care less if you're a staff member or not, I think it's funny that staff members are so worried about being "staff members" and how that influences what people think/say about them. You put your opinions out there, I comment, regardless of the staff member tag or not.

And it seems far more likely every time one person criticizes something a staff member says, then it's equally as likely the staff member will make a snide comment about it(check) and another staff member will come running to the rescue to defend them(check).

I recognize my comment was snide also, I just think The Arkells are a horribly mediocre band and I think Tokyo Police Club are doing far more interesting and engaging things.

If you give snide comments, you should expect to get them right back, but I think you came to that realization with your last sentence. I understand that they're not for everyone, I remember Dine Alone sending me an advance of their record almost 2 years ago and it took a long time before I really started to love it. We'll just agree to disagree.
