    What is your take on the Polyphonic Spree? Feel good music or bizarre cult-like band?

    Discuss.

    Also...what did you think of their VMA performance?

    I couldn't really grasp the concept of their whole... image. I thought they were really creepy and not a great... band or whatever they consider themselves.

    I saw the VMA performance and thought I had stumbled upon a revival of Jesus Christ Superstar :ninja: :innocent: My first thought was what the hell.... :blink:

    At first, I didn't want to like them. I found them too bizarre to be real and thought it was kind of gimmicky. They played at a public radio event along with Sonic Youth and Zero 7 that I went to in May. They were the last band and completely blew me away. Maybe it is a gimmick, but I think they are putting out the whole good vibe thingy that is always a good thing IMO.

    I haven't really listned to the music, but I couldn't concentrate on the music at the VMA's. They really do look like a cult right out of the seventies. For some reason, I think Charles Manson when I see the lead singer :ninja:

    Thank you Holly for posting those links. I had heard light and day many times in a commercial and never realized it was them. I think it's a nice song. After getting over the initial shock of seeing them, they are growing on me. :lol:

    I adore them... I don't understand how people can think the band members are completely out of their minds for being in ... a wide group. They make fantastic melodies with their variety of instruments. They rock.
