i finally checked out the album of the overseas hype machine. its actually pretty good, 3 tracks stand out the most(the view from the afternoon, when the sun goes down, and a certain romance) while the rest of the album seems like a grower. but its alright so far, gotta give it a few whirls.

what the rest of you guys think of it?

I've only heard a few tracks, but they kind of suck.

they are a bit overrated, but i think too many people are dismissing them because of the hype. they arent revolutionary, but it's catchy music.

Thumbs down

The few tracks I've heard of theirs seem very derivative.

They are not just a bit overrated in the uk, it's absolutely absurd, they are being hailed as the best band of all time.

I can tell why people like them, they're tight and all, but I really really don't like them. They're just... bland, with a few catchy hooks.

Mardy Bums is the only song that stood out to me.

They're all ugly sods, but I know what you're getting at. Now Linkin Park on the other hand, that's just the backstreet boys with heavy guitars.

Enjoyable album. Boring live show. But I saw them in Dallas and, let's face it, Dallas crowds can absolutely KILL a good show.

wow, they got boring so quickly.

they really are hyped up way too much, if i listened to that album one more time id hate them. so ill just keep my somewhat decent opinion of them and practically never listen again unless one of my friends are playing them.

Only by NME. And anyone who knows anything knows NME sucks balls.
