Wow. Harsh.

I do kind of agree that their albums sound the same, but so do GY!BEs and ASMZs and Mogwais and whtever other post-rocky bands are still doing stuff.

Ill admit that for the last few years, Mono has been a band that Ive been loyal to, and Ive purchased their albums and repped them heavily, but I havent listened to them much after about the second week. Kinda like recent Thurston, Lee, Flaming Lips, Dinosaur Jr, etc. albums.

But thats just a symptom of the times. Its not the finest period for guitar/bass/drum music. I still think Mono is a great band, and Im surprised at your level of snark on this one.

Guest, on the other hand, I’m not surprised by at all.

I’d be speechless if you popped on here and expressed a sentiment that wasn’t completely snide.

I have a weak spot for Mono, the first time I saw them was one of the best concert experiences ever. Sorry if you heard this before. I didn't know them at all, and I decided to close my eyes because the stage lights were directly in my eyes, and I ended up in a trance like state for the entire set. Only when the music got suddenly very loud I opened my eyes in shock :-) People behind me kept poking me thinking I was fast asleep.

Now it's the band I listen to the most, especially in the car. Don't like the latest album as much as the others, too much metally. I still hope to see them live one day with a string orchestra

Yes, it's all the same, but it's so delicious
You could say that from many bands (Interpol comes to mind), and often it does get boring.

Anyway, it's a good thing we don't necessarily all like the same music

Hmm. I used to be quite a post-rock fan some 15-20 years ago (especially the first wave, when all the first Mogwai, Bowery Electric, Long Fin Killie and Tortoise albums were really something fresh), but after several years, it started to become really bland.

I've seen a Mono gig twice in my life. Twice I left the venue before they ended. (and it never happened to me with any other band in my life). I really don't want to sound harsh (and please do not take this personally, as I see you're their fan), but to my ears, they personalize every embarrassing post-rock clich imaginable.

Hey Im not offended. That all sounds fair enough to me, even though I disagree. Its hard not to be just plain fine with post-rock, but theres still some good stuff out there. For me, I guess Mono is like comfort food at this point.

Nothing theyve done compares to, say, Millions Now Living...

New-old Car Seat, yeah. I listened to a bit of it last night. Didnt slam me right away like the two previous albums, but Im sure it will be solid.

Theres also a new Ought album that sounds pretty good.

Oh, and the new MGMT record is actually very good. Little Dark Age is my favorite song of the year so far. That groove is just obscenely sticky and delicious.
