Post what happens when a band makes an album so derivative of one genre that it's no longer good
How the fuck is "low energy" an insult to rock? The whole point of the fucking band is disaffection and malaise and ennui. The entire postrock genre is "low energy" by design, too, and if you dissed that for being vivacious then you'd get deservedly shit on.
he knows that's the band's shtick. he just doesn't like it.
just because dumb people would say dumb things to him in response to his dislike for the strokes doesn't mean anything you seem to think it might mean.
i love this album but i understand what he means. it's really faggy and degenerate, just like the velvet underground and lou reed, which i also love. it's complete garbage for you though. exactly like cigarettes.
