they never really liked emo (or post-hardcore or whatever you ppl call it) music


Newsflash: they were never emo. They themselves said so. It's sad the a mislabeled "emo" band knows more about the genre than their critics.

Stop bandying about terms you don't understand the meaning of.

I have to say that this is the best record that I've listened in my whole life

Wouldn't doubt it. though, I'm sure you acted like that too when you were younger.

After repeated listens, still no growth on me. It sucks that this is a big set back on what caught my attention in the first place, the energy.

Never denied it. It's the voice of someone who's full of youthful enthusiasm, and needs another year or two to take in a dozen or so more albums to broaden perspective.

I know someone's going to get on my case for generalization, but I've noticed that broadening of horizons usually occurs in the late teens/early 20's.This Message Edited On 10.25.06

I generally agree with that. It just doesn't seem that way on sputnik since it contains such a high concentration of 14-16yr. old music geeks.

Agreed with Zesty, sometimes Musical Puberty happens at a very early age complete with awkward flings with bad bands that aren't your music taste at all. Example: When 13, I listened to X and Y.

It really all depends on who you hang out with/associate with. Also, being internet savvy really, really increases the chance you're not going to be musically retarded.

Sputnik has a higher concentration of people who are devoted thoroughly to music, however.

To the lay person, music is something for the car, parties, etc. They have a couple of bands that they really enjoy, but they don't feel the need to do a lot of digging as they just wait for something good to come to them.

To a music geek, it's a little bit different. And of course, for every guy on Sputnik we have who's 14-16 and very cool and knowledgeable, we have just as many Steve Vai wannabes who lord their encyclopedic knowledge of virtuoso discographies over everyone in the same way that among the lay people you get the occassional wanker who thinks any band that hasn't cracked the Billboard Top 40 in the last 5 years isn't worth listening to.

In short, it takes all kinds.This Message Edited On 10.25.06

Good review, by the by.

Very warm and fuzzy. Well, maybe not.

I did find those "la's" on "Dead" to be very chuckleworthy. Not as bad of an album as I was expecting, but I doubt I'll buy this, even after listening to the stream.

I'm planning on buying it whenevr I get the extra cash. I would buy it tomorrow but I have to go see a screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show :cool:
And those la's make the song. I sing along at that point every time.

I decided a while back that I hated MCR then for some reason I bought Three Cheers, and I'm actually glad I did. I'll be picking up Black Parade soon.

I have yet to hear the single or see the video, and to be honest I don't know what to expect. This arena rock thing has boggled my mind.

Well, I heard Welcome to The Black Parade just this morning on m wa to school and I didn't thought that it was My Chemical Romance. I hate to admit it, but I like it. By the way, nice review

The single is really bad IMO, but maybe I should check out this cd anyway. The singles off Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge were also bland and unspectacular.This Message Edited On 10.27.06
