    Be negative about your top 10

    1.mewithoutYou
    I love this band but they're very clearly on a slippery slope to fail. Listening to the powerful, emotional, raw, rip-your-heart-out debut album [a-b Life] and then playing songs from 2009's weak, popy It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright breaks my heart completely.

    2.Chad VanGaalen
    Such an inspirational artist, always revolutionising his sound and wowing me with his crazy ass instruments.. as for negatives.. basically he just really needs to tour in the UK soon.. and release a new album.. and marry me.. not too much to ask.

    3.of Montreal
    Such a fun band, epic live performances. I wish more of their songs were like
    Cato As A Pun or The Past Is A Grotesque Animal ; Just that little bit of anger or anguish in more of their songs would be really good


    4.Deftones
    Great band, i'm really struggling for negatives. I kinda wanna hear them do stuff from B-Sides & Rarities live, just because it's b-sides and covers does not make it illegitimate as an album.

    5.Portugal. The Man
    I respect this band so much for how hard they work.. like on top of a busy touring schedule they're squeezing out a fresh new sound and album each year and have been doing so for 4 years straight. Although i enjoy every album, the last 2/3 hadn't stuck around past the honeymoon period like Censored Colors did.

    6.Bear Vs. Shark
    They broke up. Thats literally, the only thing i can deduct from them.
    Marc Paffi (IMO) has the best singing and screaming voice ever and they've produced two of the most stellar post-hardcore albums ever. Lets hope Bars of Gold can pick up from where they left off.

    7.Attack In Black
    In a similar but less dramatic way than mwY, AIB have lost their spark. They don't really deserve a place in my top 10 anymore. Marriage and Widows EP were awesome but they've been followed up by 2 extremely weak albums.

    8.Super Mash Bros
    Awesome party music. I've kindof killed them though.. oh and they've kindof killed music for me.. like when i went to see Ratatat last week, i found myself singing Hypnotized over Seventeen Years because of From Honor Roll To Out Of Control.

    9.At the Drive-In
    Common knowledge really that they peaked when just at the end with Vaya and Relationship of Command. All the albums leading up to these lack a certain 'je-ne-sais-quoi'

    10.Tera Melos
    Going through a major binge of TM at the moment since the release of Patagonian Rats so i'm finding it hard to criticise them. Spose they are the type of band you can only listen to for a while before it gets too much, but i think that goes with being a math rock band.. a lame criticism i know. But i really do love this band, they don't deserve to only scrape my top 10.
