    Regardless of whether you like them or not, are they over-rated?

    Yeah, theyre overrated. But they are not complete shit as some people would make you believe in order to balance the hype.

    They remind me of me in the 80's. I think they might be growing on me.
    Thought they were silly at first. Jury is still out though.

    They have two really great songs and that's it. I think you guys really have a skewed perception of ratings though. Nobody's calling The XX geniuses or anything.

    Some people are. I agree that they're good, but I feel like there's a lot of over-excitement about them. Just wondering if other people think so, too.

    I really like their album. and want to see them at coachella.
    but they are definitely overrated. I doubt they stick around long.
    can't imagine them making a better album than this one.

    It's not a huge group (yet) with massive publicity... but. over-anything no not yet...
    they are still kinda breaking out and the hype is good. Some of the songs are weak and thats ok.. this is a band that actually makes me feel something. Not like they are headlining.
    I like them.
    a band that was always overrated: KOL

    I don't care what shit I get... the first two KOL albums, especially the first one, were pretty effin' good, and they were awesome when they played Coach in '07.

    But I must say their music is terrible now, and I wouldn't touch their new albums with my grandma's dirty diapers
    careful with that axe Eugene

    that's very brave of you. i have personal reasons to dislike them, though mostly because they suck... i didn't see them in 07 but i believe you. Do people love them? i guess they do.
    let's stay on topic... the xx

    I've been playing the LP for months now and I'm still not over it. That also says a lot since I'm more inclined to listen to and purchase singles most of the time.

    I saw them perform tonight. I'm gonna go with yes. Show wasn't bad but I've seen so much better shows. I like them, but I don't see what the big deal is.

    No. I just saw them at Big Ears Festival and they were fucking legit. If you like the album at all do not miss this set. Awesome light show and just really tight all around. This band will go places, guaranteed.

    Wow, I can't believe this message board went more than 2 years without anyone taking the name "Radiohead".

    Really? I did not think they sounded tight, but may be attributed to recently going from a foursome to 3. I'm very interested to see what they do in the future, as a band or solo. Really great voices.
