What a Fantastic Album. This CD has a very mellow, dreamy, flowing feel to it. The only song really skipable song is "They're Winning" which is more of a warm-up than a song. The Recording is fantastic, very lo-fi, but not in an annoying, artsy way. While it's hard to choose stand out songs, I would be a negligent reviewer without a few. "Wake up" has a guitar driven sound that is very Velvet Underground sounding. "We've been" had sounds like some kind of fantastic music box sound to it. Lyrically again, amazing. Taking stabs at this modern retro craze thats going around. And in "Thats the Punchline" the fashion world takes a good licking. The entire CD flows together and leaves you wanting more. I highly recomend it.

I kind of bought it on a whim, I read a few reviews and that's it. Upon listening to it, I liked one or two songs but on the whole I found it to be pretty uninteresting and bland. There is a lot of good guitar work, and I like the kind of ambient piano parts, but the songs themselves seem very unstructured, wandering, not very well executed. And I really dislike the way the vocalist sings. Just boring...

When I first moved to Williamsburg in 1995, I used to see the members of Jonathan Fire Eater quite frequently. I didn't know who they were then but they looked like a band. I was going to many reading and cocktail parties to notice. The lead singer often came up to me to buy drugs in the East Village. I used to hang out at some friend's apartments between C and D when there was a fear factor. I think that he thought that I was someone else. I have a familiar face. Actually as a kid I looked a lot like the guy in the middle on the cover of The Walkmen's new CD that comes out about five years after Jonathan Fire Eater's demise. There was talk about the members going back to college. Apparently there was another band called The Recoys. From the ashes of those bands, The Walkmen started about two years ago.
I think that some of them may still live in Williamsburg. It's hard to tell what any of their songs are about. But once you hear the Pixies-like "Wake Up" you know this is a band to pay attention to. Their music is dark and has more of a sense of loose humor. "Revenge Wears No Wristwatch" is a good example of what JFE might had sounded like if they had continued. They have been compared to U2 and New Order and vocally sometimes Hamilton Leithauser is like a drunk Bono or Gavin Friday. But there is hardly any of that annoying Edge guitar and instead there is experimentation and openness to new instruments. There's more to dream about with the Walkmen. Songs like "French Vacation" and "Stop Talking" are as much about the future as it is about the past. They are not recycling.
Actually at times they sound like the next record by The Strokes, if there is ever one.

This is my favorite CD by The Walkmen and one of my favorite CDs. The haunting piano notes, the overall softness...I love it. It's loud in a soft way. Hardest thing to describe. Big jump compared to their last CD. Highlights are the catchy "We've Been Had," calming "French Vacation," and pulsing "Wake Up." (In fact, I have "Wake Up" set as my alarm clock song.
Anyway, I'd also recommend this CD to people who like U2, and maybe even Radiohead.....it all depends on who.
It's hard to hate this album.

Wow, if I've ever bought a cd on impulse it was this one. For days I had been hearing the catchy intro to "We've Been Had" on a Saturn Ion commerical, wondering who this band was. I had fallen in love with 30 seconds of piano and indie-style singing. In fact, I was so desperate to know who this band was, I emailed Saturn, begging them to tell me. The first song on Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone is worth skipping in my opinion. But "Wake Up" is phenomenal and fun to get ready to. "Stop Talking" and "It Should Take a While" are the other good songs, as well as "We've Been Had" and "Rue the Day". One fun thing about this album are all of the creative song titles like "Revenge Wears no Wrist Watch" and "French Vacation", which (unless I'm mistaken) have nothing to do with those titles. This cd ends better than it started, "I'm Never Bored" is a good ending song and fun to (attempt) to sing.

At what point does a tribute band become shameless rip off artists? I would say w/ this Walkmen album. You can hear bits of Gang of Four, The Chameleons, PIL, early Cure (17 seconds and Faith), and Joy Division throughout. The guitar sound completely rips off The Chameleons circa "Script of the Bridge". Completely empty is how you feel after listening to this - and you'll find yourself reaching for your copy of "17 Seconds" or "entertainment!". This guys voice is awful - a shame they can't ape the amazing vocals of Mark Burgess or Ian Curtis. The worlds biggest cover band is on display with this release. Save your money and save originality.

The gloomy New York quintet known as The Walkmen succeeded in making a beguiling amalgam of moody guitars, pianos and organs that elicit such occurences as the blizzard of 96' and the evanescent, pretend fans. As the record rolls, Hamilton Lighthauser's caterwaul grows a bit irritating, but the originality and spacy blend of off-kilter harmonies and the lead singer's bray make due for a very bizarre, yet pleasing listen. My two favorites are We've Been Had and Wake Up, the hits. Anyone searching for unique music should get this album.
