I know I already made a post about the Fleet Foxes new album coming out and how I thought it would be quite good. I have had a change of heart. After listening to more and more tracks and the same ones over - it is absolute rubbish and I don’t know why people consider their sound anything other than generic. Helplessness Blues has shown me the disappointing truth of the Fleet Foxes and the album has tainted their earlier stuff also with Your Protector and White Winter Hymnal being the only songs I still look at with any respect.
Now I understand that I seem hypocritical, dissing people’s taste in music which I said I wouldn’t. But truth be told I consider this an assault on the generic culture of acceptance and people liking bands because everyone else does and they’re “trendy, and alternative.” By saying the Fleet Foxes are rubbish I more hope to enlighten others to distinguish themselves rather than make people feel bad.
If you want a newish album that I rate very highly, looks no further than Adele’s 21 - works can not describe the awesomeness of her music. BUT her music can, hence the link.
