I honestly wanted to pull my hair out- I tried.......I REALLY tried to "get it", after all they ARE on Austin City Limits, right???!!! I get the "artsy" thing, and I dig the way they all flip around on stage and change instruments (many of them are multi-instrumentalists)........but after hearing the same dirging beats and monotonous songs literally shoved into my listening dis-pleasure, I could take no more. I'm NOT here to bash them (my opinions are just that....please take them at face value)- I just want to "attempt" to understand how this band is on Austin City Limits, let alone is a "critically acclaimed" band?!?!? WHAT am I NOT getting here??? I honestly couldn't even make it thru an hour of it.......but I honestly gave it the old "college try"......honestly, I did!!! They come off a bit pretentious to me- am I wrong for feeling that way?? Please......someone who actually digs this stuff, tell me what I'm missing- and don't give me the same old line of crap...."ya like it or ya don't" - some people DO like it, I just want to gain an understanding of it so I can possibly turn a waisted 40 minutes of my life into something a bit more meaningful.
