    The world would be a better place if this was the sort of music you heard on the radio. It's impossible not to love Ladytron

    I haven't been on 4chan for a couple of years now. Do whatever you please, kiddo, but at least know what the word overrated means before throwing it around.

    @maxiforthemax So I can't form an opinion about a band because according to some patrician 4chan kid on last.fm my taste in music apparently dictates what I am able to do?

    @AntasTheGreat being a fan of Radiohead invalidates calling anything overrated.

    @maxiforthemax >greentexting on last.fm, and just because Radiohead is my top played artist by like 10 scrobbles doesn't automatically mean they're my favorite band.

    @Tahula: No big news other than this one: the new album is planned to be released in 2015. @AntasTheGreat: They're not overrated at all. @Stefanszz: Then listen something else. Problem solved.
