You know how it is: Sometimes, its tough to accept what the critics say.
You pour your heart and soul into creating an aural master-piece and they accuse you of singing out of key or not being The Strokes or worse still; totally over-look your awesome visionary force and dismiss it with faint praise.
And then one day you spend 5 minutes ripping off Teddy Bears Picnic and suddenly your the darling of the indie press. So I say, pay no attention!
