Well I could tell Envy and Thursday are the biggest influences for this, just it's so blatantly obvious with little OTHER influence coming through. I mean it's still okay and I'll still listen to it cos I like that sound but yeah

Unless Love American is some inhuman monster, or a machine, it should be 'their debut full-length', although 'debut album' is far neater. Also this
an emotional/post-hardcore band from California
might be referring to genre, but actually sounds like the band's defining characteristic is having emotions. Emo is a pretty flimsy term in itself, but at least it sounds like a genre tag. 'Emotional' sounds like you're congratulating a group for achieving what even a retarded monkey has from birth.
Album is a solid 3.5 for me.
I was attempting to say emotional-hardcore/post-hardcore without saying 'hardcore' twice.
Also, I think band is singular as it is one group. Unless it is inherently plural like The Beatles, it is treated as one.
^^ wow, just wow.
Okay? I'm not 100% sure about it but every person I have ever asked who has a decent grammar background has said the same. And each time I look it up I see that band names are to be taken as singular.
Yeah if someone could clear that up for me with some solid proof I'd be super greatful. I've always struggled with it.
I'm not talking about you, Xeno.
A band is a group of people banded together under a common name. The name doesn't release the album, the group of people do.
Band being treated as a singular or plural varies between American English and the Queen's English
Dammit that doesn't help me. I always used it as strictly plural but I've been switching lately for the aformentioned reasons.
Band should be singular in the same way as a class or a country or a world is still singular despite representing many people/things.
I was raised on real English (not the terrible stuff you lot are taught in Americaland) so I'm obviously biased, but to me it just makes sense to refer to a group as a collective. They might be operating under one banner but they're not a singular unit; the band is comprised of etc....
I'm pretty sure Phleb is British so it looks like just me and cam.
I'll be honest, plural does sound more natural, it is why I use it so often, but like I said the things I read. Too bad I'm way past the point of being done with all of my lit/English classes or else I'd ask a professor lol.
Actually depending on what is being said, a country could be represented as a singular plural difference
