Default When did Vampire Weekend turn into a soft rock/AOR band?

Jesus fucking christ their new album is boring. I loved it at first but I don't know what I was thinking. They went from sounding like Paul Simon and the English Beat and the Police to sounding like the worst stuff from the early / mid 80s.

The way they combined world music / Caribbean music with indie rock and chamber music was novel. Regardless of what people say they did have their own sound earlier on.
