Clap Your Hands Say Yeah / Rating 9.0

My ears must be broken.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah sounds like David Byrne drunk singing karaoke to a Smiths record. ( I am being lazy and quoting myself from an email I just sent a friend but I needed to get this off my chest officially)

How did this get a 9.0 from Pitchfork?
Why is this number one at Other Music?

I am clapping my hands and saying EH.

A little help here.
Are they good live?
Have friends in high places?
Did they cast a magic spell over NYC to love them?
