That is the question. I enjoy that new single "When You Were Young" and their new album supposedly is influenced by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Bruce Springsteen.

Yay. They were slightly annoying but their new single is very good.

I liked them before Mr. Brightside was released as a single. Though it does have a sweet guitarline, the song is just very cheesy. When the Somebody Told Me EP came out, I loved it.

I liked their first cd, very British sounding. I'm curious as to see how American this one sounds so I can compare the two.

yeah totally.
#11
I used to be really into them about two years ago when I got their first album but now I don't really like them. I could probably get back into them again though.

They're good, but Brandons voice seems really lazy on the new song, like he's not really putting the effort in. On the first there were all these awesome sustained, heavy vibrato vocal lines, but the new single makes it seem lazy.

MASSIVE nay. their music doesnt agree with me, and the lyrics piss me off.
#14
I dislike the fact that they're trying to milk craploads of money out of kids who are too ignorant to have heard or heard of The Cure's Disintegration.

Meh, I only like All These Things That I've Done and their view on emo bands.

Yeah, I'll agree with that. Anyone else think that he's trying to put on a bit of a Connor Oberst (Brighteyes) voice?

What are you on about? They do not sound anything like pop punk or Panic! At The Disco.
#26
Not seen them live. And well... they don't offend my ears, which a lot of this recent wave of rock-ish bands does.

I like the synthy touch, but their last album was overplayed to the power of ten.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.
#28
Their first album is amazing. There's not one song on that CD that I dislike.
I have yet to hear their new stuff; I should check it out.

Yeah but it's still terribly generic.

I like them. Sure, not the most original sound, but they do a damn good job of that sound.
WHY IS EVERYONE IN THE PIT A FUCKING METALCORE KID
#33
Yes, I like them, but that mustache just annoys me to death. Reminds me of Freddie Mercury. The new single is very good.
#34
I enjoy them a lot. I haven't heard the new song though so its all based on their old album.

(Jack) why teh fuck do people still have rottweilers/pit bulls?
(Lucy) why the fuck not?
(Jack) because they have a strange tendency to EAT YOUR CHILDREN

I like them a bit. Their music makes me oddly happy for some reason. Plus, it's catchy.

No, it's not the most musically incredible bands of today, but they're not bad either.

Yay from me.
#36
I used to hate them, but now I'm actually very into the band. The vocals are the most charming aspect probably.
#37
i'm listening to Sam's town right now. Awesome band.

yay

Hot Fuss is pretty good, but I've heard a lot of Sam's Town, and have to say that so far, When You Were Young is the only song that even compares. Still a yay, because WYWY is great, and so is their first album.
#40
The only track I really like is All These Things That I've Done.
