I have Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots and listened to it almost constantly through the summer. Haven't listened to them in quite a while, but they're a very good band.

Can't say I am a huge fan. An occasional listen. I have Yoshimi. It's a good album. But I guess the whole style is just something out of the ordinary for me.

You ought to get "Hit To Death In The Future Head". I'd rate that 8/10.
Yoshimi is very well composed. I like the overall theme of robots, love, despair and overcoming things.
You rated Zaireeka a 10? Are you nuts! There is no other album harder to listen to than that, but what they did with it is amazing. The whole concept of it makes it one of the ultimate stoner albums(s).

They're a very good band, and I enjoy listening to them once in a while. I think they're bringing out a new album this year, so that should be good.
Yoshimi is their best song. But 'Thank you Jack White (for the fibre optic Jesus that you gave me) is also very good- It's a song about how Jack White gave the guy a fibre optic Jesus, if you hadn't guessed.

They also do a cover of "Seven Nation Army" that's pretty damn good. Dare I say, better than the original?

I have Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, but I really don't like it too much. Just not my style.

I don't know their actual music, but I like the remix of Do You Realize by The Postal Serivce. The lyrics, however, depress me.

I just heard At War With The Mystics, and I love it. I'm a fan of the Yeah Yeah Yeah Song.

I heard that on the radio the other day and I too am a fan of it.

It's not that it's overwhelmingly awesome (though it is good), it's just I never really cared for that song and they put a nice little spin on it. Not many songs I don't like by The White Stripes, but "Seven Nation Army" is one of them. That and "We're Going to Be Friends".

I take that back...I'm more of a huge fan now. I plan on buying 'Transmissions...' soon.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
