Midlake - Fortune
God knows I tried to like them. They were recommended to me by my good friend whose musical taste I respect but he didn't tell me neither that they were jazz students (from jazz they borrowed the least important thing - competence on their instruments) nor that their favorite bands are Radiohead and Jethro Tull (from Radiohead they borrowed quasi-intellectual pose, from Jethro Tull those ever-changing musical directions). Overall impression - flat, boring and meaningless.
