Agreed amazing stuff. It's a shame that alot of people my age listen to nothing but generic metalcore and all that bullshit but have no sense of musical exploration and won't even give music like this a chance. This is the type of shit that makes me happy that i joined this site and decided to expand my tastes.

my guess is that youre quite young. its great that youve found music that you love, but i wouldnt recommend being self righteous about it. theres nothing wrong with liking metalcore or whatever it is people enjoy listening to. its all just personal taste.

Not really. A lot of it comes down to ignorance the tendency to take what is most accessible and easily available rather than what is of the best quality.

^ Exactly, that' basically what I am trying to say. Not being self righteous at all. It just sucks that bands like this go almost completely unnoticed by most when bands like Asking Alexandria and stuff of that nature is so popular to where it is almost sickening when in reality they haven't even released anything that has really lived up to the hype imo. Also, i'm not attacking the metalcore genre as a whole. tbh some metalcore bands have a lot of potential such as For The Fallen Dreams. but for the most part they don't get the praise they deserve. Hell even Bring Me The Horizon has shown a lot of growth and maturity over their career and I give them props for that.

Music taste is so subjective man, you shouldn't pigeonhole music into 'good' and 'bad'. It doesn't matter what other people listen to if they enjoy it right?

I always get the feeling that people who listen to more immediate, mainstream music don't listen and appreciate it in the same way I do. It always seems to be more about the tune, more about the thought of what the song sounds like rather than the actual song.

It's why people can listen to music at tiny volumes on rubbish headphones. Because it reminds them of the song and what it sounds like rather than actually listening to it and the sounds and the feel of the music.

And you know what? That's absolutely OK! I'm just glad music makes people happy, whatever they listen to, however the listen to it and what about it makes them enjoy it.

gary barlow makes and listens to pop music. does that mean he doesnt appreciate music as much as some kid on a forum? never judge peoples ability to appreciate music based on the music they like. they may not appreciate music by listening in a dark quiet room with headphones, but that doesnt mean they dont get as much joy and appreciate in other ways. hooks and bouncy beats are just as valid as any other form of music, and if listening to that out loud makes someone happy and dancy feel energetic then thats just as worthwhile as music making you feel reflective and moody. i think a self-righteous, almost snobby attitude to music is something everyone adopts when they begin to find niche underground music in their teens, but i think its something everyone grows out of eventually.

It is quite a bit like DS though, just the string arrangements and that area fleshed out a bit

I don't get what beef people have with people listening to music they don't consider *worthy*. No-one's stopping you listening to it. Hell, you'd probably get a bit annoyed if more people listened to your music

I'm referring to the person who gave this a 1, but I agree. I may not understand why people like pop music, but that's fine.
