Oh no, Topman is in the 2nd place in the "Worst of" poll/ranking. So it's not overrated at all (at least on this forum) ;)

Quite right. Most of 13 is bloody awful.
Tender is great, Coffee is almost as good, but the rest is mostly rubbish.
The original NME review, below, was spot on.

NME suck ass, that review is shite. 13 is excellent. You're in the minority!
13 is overrated imo. And by overrated, I mean it's not as good as the self titled album, which is my personal favourite. ;)

They're both fantastic. A better way to put it.

True that. Gah! I'm in work in 10 minutes but now all I wanna do is put on the self titled album and 13 back to back!

Ooh, I forgot Dancehall. It's not that it's a bad track, but it gets treated like a sonic masterpiece. I don't see it.

No Distance Left To Run - the worst song on 13 and they released it as a single.
You're So Great - No you're not.
Battery In Your Leg - A real battery in my real leg would be less painful. A D Battery.
Me, White Noise - Some people like it. I presume they also enjoy having wisdom teeth removed.

TRIMM FUCKING TRABB (not the forumer)

It's not a bad song, but it's far from great. Hell, over half of 13 is better than it.

i think a lot of magic whip stands up to the older stuff, but pyongyang is one of those songs, so I can't really complain
