If you listen carefully, he's not out of tune, he just has his own way of singing. Not beautiful, just distinct. I can name loads of singers who don't have a great voice.

Why are they hated so much? Because they're getting all this attention in the media? I'm really curious.  <!--emo&:blink:-->Image<!--endemo--> Okay, I think I've had all to say about these guys.<!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><div class='postcolor'><!--QuoteEEnd-->
I think you're spot-on; if people didn't feel they'd been having them forced down their throats for the past 6 months they'd either like them or not and leave it at that. Nobody likes to feel they're being told what to like, do they?

Personally, I didn't like the ...Dancefloor single but I bought the album just in case I was missing out on something (Hey, I never said I was immune to hype!). And it was no better or worse than a hundred albums I've bought in the last couple of years - 4 or 5 songs I really like and the rest I could happily live without. I think lyrically they have something in that tradition of Ray Davies, Paul Weller, Morrissey (yes!), and Jarvis Cocker, with a bit of Mike Skinner thrown into the mix. And that's interesting in the sense of seeing how it might develop.

But really, there's nothing there for people to be getting their knickers in a twist about either way; it's obviously not the best British debut album of all time, but neither is it the worst thing since Coldplay's last effort escaped.

So if you want something to vent your spleen on, I know where Bono lives. Any takers? <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->

I think if you address your hate-mail to:

Bono
c/o God


It'll get there.

I don't particularly like the Arctic Monkeys. I think they're boring.

I agree with clarky, a certain romance is my favourite.

They truly are amazing. The best band alive at the moment... And still I haven't purchased the album. I must be a fool through and through
