Hipster of me to not like their new music?

I'm not the only one who feels this way.

There is no buzz for them right now outside their website in my eyes.

No one I know seems to care.

Legitimate question here - why do people think these songs are good?

I'm absolutely confounded.

I loved the 1975 - I first saw them in a basement in Rochester, NY in 2013 playing to a few hundred...

You have 0/10 taste. This video is absolutely awful. It's the epitome of an artist being at a point in their career where no one would say no to a terrible treatment.

I love Taylor Swift - I've seen...

This is the worst video I have ever seen - what happened to poor Taylor. Hard to like her sometimes.

A US headlining tour with 3 shows in Canada.

So a US/Canada tour.

Strange that they would name the tour after lyrics from their last album.

Am I the only one bummed that they are going in this cheese 80s direction?

Their first album had elements of that, but it was broken up and the EPs had so many more contemporary songs.

It's great...

Better than any pop singer/producer is a bit of a stretch... they also certainly would have worked with a producer on this.

Love the band and the song is great.

But how can anyone honestly say this video is good?

It's literally just Lauren with 3 different hairstyles/outfits and a brief glimpse of each dude as a...

Interesting comment. I skip Hold No Guns unless I'm just letting it play through - not a fan, kills momentum, but I personally feel Haunted is one of their best songs... ever.

Fair enough - I just see it as an additive process.

The first 5 songs and track 10 are the keepers for me, there are a couple more I can enjoy but don't love, and a few I could leave behind.

I...

I feel like people who are turned off by Everything's A Ceiling and Good Help are just generally not flexible with their acceptance of the wider spectrum of influence.

It's the band's 8th album,...

I can understand how you might say that - but also keep in mind he probably had a lot to do with all the auxiliary percussion on this album. It's rhythmic perfection in my opinion. Like all the songs...

I'm shocked you don't dig You've Haunted Me All My Life - I think it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I instantly felt that.

I'm personally all about this. There's maybe two or three songs I don't instantly connect with, but the rest are just so wildly good and immediate winners for me.

These arrangements are just out of...

Trying really hard to like both these songs and I'm just not there... yet? Both just kind of have a singular vibe, which is OK, but nothing is blowing me away. Neither even comes to close to being as...

They are most certainly only live members.

In an interview, the sentiment was along the lines of... "Now it will just be three of us and we will augment the live show with touring members. Should...

I back this hard.

I really love this band at every point in their career, but Trans- has it all. I haven't ever heard another record that resonates as much with me. What I find incredible is the...

If I hadn't read all these comments, I totally would have totally forgotten that the quality of album is objectively determinable.
