Does having an album named Free Your Mind automatically make a band not worth taking seriously? Cut Copy are super talented musicians, who cares what they name their albums?
It's less the phrase itself that bugs me - if it did I'd probably never watch The Matrix again. Moreso it's the fact that having been not too impressed with Cut Copy's recorded material, I was at least expecting an exceptional spectacle (ala our mutual friend Panda Bear,) not just the album name as a backdrop. I stayed for about twenty minutes, and perhaps if they were an instrumental group I'd dig 'em more, but it's the vocals and lyrics man...I just can't ignore them enough to enjoy the band.
That said, simplistic lyrics doesn't always equal a bad song, and lord knows I enjoyed the shit out of some ridiculous stuff over the weekend. I ain't tryna throw that dirty wet blanket over anybody's festivities. Again: hope everybody had a fantastic time, whatever that may mean.
No, you are definitely being dickish when you're saying stuff like "How can anyone above the age of thirteen take this band seriously?".
