Wildlife was boring if you have a short attention span. Simple.

"Wildlife was boring if you have a short attention span. Simple."

Uh, or the music just sucked ass, the vocals were horrible, and the lyrics tried WAY too hard

New Defeater is pretty good but underwhelming compared to their old stuff, new touche is lovely, La Dispute is an incredible band but I have not sat down and listened to Wildlife as a whole yet

I've never liked LD so you must think I'm brain dead. I'm okay with that I suppose.

I don't get why people in the Wildlife thread couldn't understand this

what does attention span even have to do with something being boring?

home away from here is actually like top 10 songs this year and there were a few other stand-outs but on the whole their previous outings were way more consistent and less corny. jordan is a very good vocalist and lyricist, wildlife is a solid 3. i far preferred the way they constructed their songs on somewhere...

Vocally it was Jordan's best performance to date, the gripping storytelling was leagues better than SatB's solid-but-redundant Livejournal poetry, and musically it was on par with the music on SatB, except on Wildlife, the musicians felt in-sync with Jordan. On SatB it felt like the music and the vocals were competing for your attention, whereas on Wildlife they were completely in tune with eachother.

How does it feel being so wrong, Rosa? Does it hurt?

A lot of Wildlife felt flat to me, and the lyrics were surprisingly sub-par. All in all, it was just an underwhelming album. But I did like Love Song for Poor Michigan....a lot.

I didn't like Wildlife at first but the more I listen to it the more I've come to love it.

@fuckthatnoise

You're criticism of how the instrumentals 'compete' with the vocals on SatB are absolutely wrong in every way, thats calling a band out for having more than one interesting thing going on at once, the guitar work is 10000x better than on the few songs from Wildlife Ive heard.

Lol. The infinite intelligence of the master of prOG.
I mean, it's pretty clear how hard he is trying to write songs that are "different" and it all just comes out forced and annoying. And his delivery is dreadful. Somewhere At the Bottom was senseless fun, and I loved it. Wildlife is just a mess of stories that have all been told before, but in a much less mature manner.
