and then when her first full length came out it just seemed to polished for me.. she sorta got a makeover and it just wasnt my thing anymore..

then I heard her on the radio, and felt like shoving sporks in my ears

I feel like she's yelling at me, and that makes me sad cause I really don't deserve that. Not from her at least.

Sounds like the Metric model.

i saw them on SNL. i didn't get it.
of course i'm totally baffled by arcade fire too and i know a lot of people lose their mind on that weird/lame semi-large pop act.

It is so nice to see that someone else thinks Arcade Fire is over rated. I have tried to dig it and just can't. I don't know if it is because I am not Canadian, or that I hate PBR, but whatever it is, I can't seem to get to the radio dial fast enough whenever it comes on.

Other bands like Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes and John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band created a lot of proactive interference when I heard Arcade Fire and I couldn't take it seriously. I can't believe that many art students got together and created something that boring. The band sounds exactly like the aforementioned East Coast bands for a younger, newer generation and those bands didn't excite me all that much in the first place (although Southside Johnny had a few killer records in his day). It's like finding an underwhelming unreleased stash of songs by this guy you never heard of who was a lot like Bruce Springsteen and realizing why it was never released but at the same time seems to have some promise or authenticity. I bet they would have been pretty inspiring 35 years ago.

ditto.

i don't get what the kids are all excited about. i seriously need a red bull to get through them. i could dig it if the songs were catchy and got my toe tapping, but my toe's never budged.
