Pinata kicks so much balls. Probably one of their best songs of all.

They need a rhythm guitarist so Pete can solo more



He's actually pretty good when he wants to be

The sad thing is a lot of the musican that play this kind of music are amazing. I stumbled across a video on youtube of Aaron Fink (ex-gutarist in Breaking Benjamin) at soundcheck with everyone but Ben, and they played a song -I forget which song- and he lets loose with a face-melting solo near the end.



Still, it's the style of music I guess.

Ha, thats weird. I havent listened to Breaking Benjamin since high school but Fink's solos always kinda sucked on the record.



But I guess youre right. It bums me out. This band clearly has the potential to write some great music, they just play it too safe to ever really hit hard enough. Still Im not a believer in the notion that if you add endless guitar noodling and five extra minutes of pointless shit to each song your musical integrity increases at all either, so...

I agree. But if a solo or something with a bit of technicality works use it. ha I love bands like this for vocal sake though. There is some great melodies on this record.

I've always loved these guys and I just downloaded the album and listened to the meddler. All I can say is that pete's voice seems to get better and better on every album. Also, these guys put on the most solid shows I've seen. Everything sounds exactly like their recordings

also, point #1 has some decent drums on it. If you haven't already listened to it you should give it a listen although it is the least refined album they've created.

weird how much sput loves this band, i mean they have a pretty mainstream (albeit good) sound, not that i dislike them, at all, it just seems a bit odd.

They have a pretty winning formula and for some reason know how to play it just tweaked enough each

time that it doesn't get old. They can also play heavy and soft music equally as well (despite 90% of

the songs being heavy, when they go soft it can also be epic). This was the first time in pretty much

forever though where one could listen to the album and think "they might be losing ideas".

Sorry if I offend people but this honestly sounds like slightly better Nickelback to me.

Dude just play the first song on this then play anything from Nickelback. This is still better but I get a Nickelback vibe from it.

Nah sorry. Not a huge fan of Chevelle's last few albums but they're definitely not Nickelback

Yeah there are. The guitar tone, many of the riffs, structure. Vocals are different but could be compared. From what I listened to in high school Three Days Grace might be a better band to compare to though.

This is kind of a cool flow to it, but it is the structure that gets me. I've just heard enough of the same basic radio verse/chorus repeat. I want to hear the new album but it's not on Spotify.
