The Black Lips were fucking awesome all the way through Let It Bloom, which I still think is their best album. The problem is that most bands are ripping off the shitty albums after that, and the ones that are ripping off the solid Black Lips era (pre-2006) don't have any hooks or tunes. All they have is a bunch of reverb and treble.
But yeah, I know what you mean. Even a lot of stuff that ends up on year-end lists around here and similar places I'll listen to for half a song before putting it in the "Black Lips dumpster," which is pretty full these days.
