Nope, It's Still Not Okay to Compare a Current Band to Mozart

We don't really love playing language police with you, Internet, but in the name of All That Is Holy, this cannot stand: You went and compared the head guy in some indie rock band called Beirut to … Mozart. Wolfgang Amadeus Fucking Mozart.

You know, Mozart! Likely the greatest talent that Western music has ever known (arguable, sure, but certainly likely). Sure, he's totally on the level of the songwriter of one New Mexico rock band with Balkan influences and trumpets and accordions and pretty voices and stuff. Totally.
