    I'd largely avoided Drake for 5/6 years or whatever it is, until finally curiosity got the better of me one evening this year. And...it's not bad, is it? But why the hell is he so popular? Very personable in interviews though.

    Doesn't have the poise, hauteur or emotional weight of sade but it's a start

    I hate on Drake at every opportunity but he's had some really good songs that cannot be denied as (albeit miserable) pop music.

    Saying that, I think he's absolutely massive at the moment for reasons other than the music, but the music is definitely well produced/written.

    I've heard the name Mumford & Sons quite a bit in the last year or two, thought to myself I might as well fill in the gap in my knowledge. So I listened to three songs of theirs on youtube- what I presume are their three biggest tracks. I was expecting to recognise them as the chart topping hits that they are, one of them ones where you've heard them a million times before and they are actually okay you just never knew who did them. And... they seem to be b-sides, underwhelming tracks that never seem to kick in.

    There's a scene in the Sopranos where Christopher plays Hesh the CD of the band that his girlfriend wants to sign. Hesh listens to it and says, "it's not a hit". Christopher says words to the affect of, "with all due respect you're an old man, this probably isn't you're kind of music". Hesh replies: "doesn't matter, whether I like this genre or not I can tell the difference between a hit and a miss, and that is not a hit".

    He was talking about Mumford & Sons.

    Whatever about the fellow travelers, you should rectify the AE bit. They stand alone in electronic music.

    I hate them on principle because they're English public schoolboys pretending to be Irish gypsy folk, but I couldn't help but really like that song they did for "Inside Lwelyn Davies". I console myself with the knowledge that they probably ripped off the whole thing from some actual Irish follies.

    which tunes made him massive though? i loved 9am in dallas, but tunes like started from the bottom and marvin's room seem weak to me. not bad as such, just nothing-y. I'm perplexed that he's a superstar.
