    I wasn't being a cheap ass, I just couldn't go. I had a FREE ticket, but I was really sick, and didn't feel like driving from indio to LA that night. You aren't the first person to tell me I need to see them live before I make a judgement on them. I like their music, I just don't get the amazingnessnessness you guys talk about. I will report when I catch them live.

C'mon man, you gotta meet me somewhere in or near or in the general area of the middle

    what she does on harp is great, thats a given. but then she has to open that fucking trap of hers
    She does shriek sometimes, I'll give you that. But it's a fantastic shriek. Her songwriting is so fucking good too. You should sit down with her lyrics and listen to "Emily" and "Sawdust and Diamonds" one time through... If you don't like it then, then fine.

    I think Mogwai might be one of those bands that you really do have to see to get, Sushov. Unless you're someone who easily enjoys instrumental post-rock music. It took me a while to really love EITS and Mogwai, but I'm glad I came around.

    You are such a loser.

    I will certainly agree with Kings of Leon. I also would add Beck, Animal Collective, Morrissey/The Smiths, and Neutral Milk Hotel as some of the artists I just don't get (I don't hate them, but I don't understand the commotion) that gets tons of love on the board.

    Yeah sure man, if it helps makes you feel like less of a loser. you call me a loser for the Mogwai comment, and right after you list AC, Beck, AND NMH? don't comment on me EVER again please after that.

    The Smiths is another one. Certainly a good band, but not the anointed gods they are on this message board. Animal Collective, 100% agree. I'm okay with NMH, but I'd be lying if I said his voice didn't bother me.

    But seriously... Beck?

    Do this Rocke. I'll say this again, but Animal Collective is the most important band of this decade.

    I fell in love with EITS the moment I heard the first song, it wasn't the same with Mogwai. I do enjoy Mogwai, but I just don't love the music as much as I do with EITS.

    I'll have to think about it. I watched about 15 minutes of their Coachella set, and wasn't blown away. Like I said, don't hate them, but just don't get the hype.

    I have tried so hard to get into Beck as far back as his Odelay days. I just can't do it for whatever reason. I know he is talented, but I never have desire to listen to him.

    This is reasonable. Its not like you said EFF BECK

    Its taken me 6 months, but I really like the MGMT cd. Although I totally understand. I was on the EFF MGMT bandwagon until maybe last week

    Hm, I think the Mogwai track that led me to finally "get it" was off on their EPs, the track's called "Small Children in the Background." If you're interested.
    EITS was quicker for me, primarily from their Coach '07 performance.

    Could everyone please stop acting like it's shocking when people don't like the band that you LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVEOMGZZZ as much as you but then get all outraged when someone LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVEZZZOMGZZZ a band you don't like? Just for like, a month? I understand this is the internet and that for the most part people are being facetious, and I some times do it myself, but I'm willing to put in the effort if you are. It's fucking boring. OK all?

    Funny, but that album is what got me into Mogwai, as well. Stanley Kubrick and Burn Girl Prom Queen, specifically. I liked EITS more than any post-rock group before getting into Mogwai, but now EITS isn't even in my top 10 post-rock acts.

    i agree, even though i'll concede that "the great salt lake" is a spectacular song.

    In my mind, no band has a better understanding of what makes pop music great and what makes experimental music great at the same time. Their songs (from Here Comes the Indian On) seem to perfectly capture this stuff. And everything before that stands out as incredibly interesting as the foundation.

    They reinvent themselves every fucking album, and it's frustrating watching it happen because no human beings should be able to mine that much terrain so quickly and so well. I have a hard time comparing them to any past bands. In my mind they are kind of like the inverse of the Beatles, they began with a really great background in experimental music but seem to be working towards the perfect pop song (their latest EP is the perfect example).
