No offense Dom, but where are we supposed to go with this? Some people like them, some don't. What else is there to say?

LOL...it's just that they seem to be everyone's Second Coming, you know? After the first album or two came out, Rolling Stone and Spin were naming Jack White one of the best guitar players of all time. I mean, come on.

Don't get me wrong, they aren't horrible by any means, and I like a few of their songs, but the rest of the albums just sound like filler to me.

And since I had yet to hear someone dis them, I was just wondering if I was the only one who didn't think they were awesome.

You like something (an album, a movie, a tv show)? Good.

Insofar as an article might point you to more things you might like, great. Insofar as those magazines and the endless substrata of hipper-than-thou magazines that swim in their ever-more-irrelevant wake do anything else, who cares?

At the time the music press was trying to push garage rock as some kind of revolutionary thing, and most of the other bands they threw in that category were [censored], so they stood out i guess. FWIW, I like them, but I think they get more credit for their image than anything sometimes.
