fleet foxes alan mcgee zani 4.j

Can people be blinded by hype into accepting absolute garbage into the rock'n'roll canon? I refer to a dispute I had recently over the meteoric rise of Fleet Foxes. A friend of mine believed that to truly judge whether an album is a "classic" you have to wait at least a year for the hype to clear. For her, Fleet Foxes have failed the test because their self-titled debut is a folk version of Coldplay.

In Bad As Me Tom Waits seems to just shake the stories and ideas out of his sleeve onto the record. It's an ebullient and brightly imagined (and executed) album, with some jaw-droppingly good bits.
