""never trust a letlive. fan that has never listened to Fake History" -Roger Miret"



that's not right, but I was wondering: are there fans of the first two albums but not fake history?

Thanks RatKing, I gave it a listen and didn't honestly like it as much as the new album. It seemed less coherent, there was less that grabbed my attention immediately. Listening to Glassjaw now though, definitely good stuff.



And thank you as well Viper, I've basically been lurking here before the site was even live. Now I have adderall, so I type more and am more open to sharing and defending my opinion.

I can understand that Cygnatti, and do agree. I think Coheed's album with Chris Penne is my biggest example of synths gone wrong, or pick any of the Rush albums from the 80s.



My real problem with Stay What You Are, is that is came right after Through Being Cool, the best album of my highschool years. They had also just released "A drag in D Flat" and "Sell My Old Clothes" on a compilation. SWYA came out and it was so soft, it was just a much different direction than I was expecting. I wanted that edge that they were teasing on the compilation, not soft songs about drowning because your friends are high.

through with being cool is still really good, but it's more typical of pop punk. stay what you are is more ballad-heavy and slower, sure, but is more conceptual and ultimately more meaningful even though the songs are still very simple by themselves.

Ha, well there's a quick way to lose some good faith. In fairness I meant post-Signals pre-Snakes & Arrows Rush. Moving Pictures is still amazing.

Listening to Banshee again (prolly one of my most spinned songs of the year, so much better than the rest of the album not even funny), and it's so frustrating when you think of what could be done with a better production because they're clearly trying to make the instruments have a "punch" to them but it fails so badly

Banshee is the only song where it works regardless of it

It doesn't sound over- nor underproduced, it just sounds muffled and there's no leak to blame, it's the mixing. I got used to that though and love this album as much as Fake History.
