2008 Year in Review: Most Overrated Band of the Year

Another in a series of short posts recapping the year in music.

Most Overrated Band of the 2008: Fleet Foxes

This year, it seemed that everyone fell in love with Fleet Foxes, and for the life of me, I can’t quite figure out why. Their music isn’t bad, it’s just nothing spectacular. Stealing the voice of Jim James of My Morning Jacket and putting it over folk retreads doesn’t make you a fantastic band, it just makes you enjoyable to listen to while doing work. I found that people have been thinking of Fleet Foxes as this great band that fills you with warmth, but honestly, I just don’t see it. Congrats guys! Another honor to post on your website!
