Doesn't Live Up To The Hype
on February 4, 2013
Japandroids' Celebration Rock earned a large amount of critical praise ranking in both Spin & Rolling Stone's top ten list for 2012. I have to say I don't see what all the fuss is about. The songs all have a similar sound, heavy on the drone and low-fi vocals. There is nothing wrong with the album, all eight tracks are decent enough, but nothing that makes me want to put them into heavy rotation. If you like Husker Du, Sonic Youth and that style of sound, then Japandroids will be something you'll want to check out.
