Im sure this isnt that bad. These guys do get alot more shit than they should here but thats what happens when you're as popular as they are. Everybody's got an opinion on em. They're an okay progressive metalcore band that has some interesting ideas sometimes but also completely misses the mark with others.

That's my main gripe right there. I feel these guys get way more shit than others just because they're pretty popular now. I could point the finger at so many bands that are a million times worse than these guys.

Even though I do love this band, I can't call myself a fanboy. Most people who know me in real life know I "rep" Tool and System of a Down too much. Hardly bring these guys up unless it's relevant to something.

If I know somebody that's into heavier music, I almost always rec BTBAM. But in general, I usually rec The Dear Hunter to everyone. Everybody loves TDH

Its pretty much just become a meme to hate this band now. They are way too popular for their own good and many prob dont feel they justify it.

I didn't even realize they were that popular. I've seen them three times now and there were really never that many people there. I think they just have a very dedicated fanbase.

I still don't really understand how "wank" is determined. If you're a talented guitarist, why not show off your skill as much as you want? However, it can't be nothing but solos and such.

I actually would never do that. I always recommend mostly classic death metal, metalcore, and progressive metal. I feel like this is one of the last things you recommend unless your friends like Protest the Hero, Fall of Troy, etc.

it's wank because they're wanking

the songwriting isn't the focal point

Wank is when they just masturbate their instruments, rather than attempting to write decent riffs, cohesive music or anything like that. Their solos don't sound good if it's nothing but wank, because it just sounds like a mess.

Well I mean I suggest other things too, and I always warn them that they're a bit out there, but it's not like I shove them down their throat. I just say "Hey you should give them a shot."

Did that with my girlfriend when I first met her and she liked them.

Speaking of the term "wank". When it was first being tossed around, all I could picture was a guitarist masturbating ferociously while playing the guitar. I was somewhat laughing while also being mentally disturbed.

That's pretty much what they do.

wank is awesome in the context of great songwriting. the reason I listen to metal, jazz, prog, and all that shit is the musicianship. the song should just always come first and thats somthing btbam gets wrong alot of the time to me. their songs are all over the place and change up every 20 seconds with rarely anything to connect it all. but ill listen to this and see if they've gotten better.

This really is better in terms of structure. They still have a couple of those "lolsorandom" moments.
