the Decemberists

Why is it that critics love the Decemberists who they always compare to Belle and Sebastian yet they loathe Camera Obscura for sounding like Belle and Sebastian?

Re: the Decemberists

Because critics are hypocritical idiots. Same reason why some critics tried to deride Devendra Banhart's Cripple Crow for being overlong and self-indulgent yet they LOVE Sufjan Stevens' Illinois when both albums have the same number of tracks and approximately the same running time. It's all part of the bandwagon I guess. Go figure...
