Anybody else really into them, they are really good IMO. Some songs can be heard on there Purevolume (http://www.purevolume.com/matchbookromance) site.

Recomended: Promise, My Eyes Burn, Greatest Fall (Of All Time), and all the songs on PV are really good too.

I used to be really into them. I haven't listened in a long time though. I may take a listen sometime soon though. I think I kind of grew out of them.

I used to listen to them a lot too. I still don't mind them, just I have other bands I prefer to listen to. I might listen to them tomorrow during school. I always argue with myself what to listen to and I will listen to them tomorrow. I know there were a few really good songs by them.

I need to go to a big concert sometime soon. I loved the last one I went to, but it was small. I'd like to see a big one just to see the difference.

You guys hijacked my thread :(


(:p )

Yeah the Ep is really good aswell, they have a new song out, I have a link tis not YSI, its rapid share, but its only like 4 mb. So if you want it hit me up. Greatest fall is my fav song aswell.
I have yet to listen to the new song though.

Sorry :upset:

Do you have a preference between the EP and the full length?

11-01-2005, 09:25 PM
Haha its fine. I haven't listened to the Ep in a while, but I can send you both or w/e you want over aim, but not tonight, I'm gonna leave in a bit. So if you want any of them let me know.

11-01-2005, 09:25 PM

Oh haha, I thought you were asking for what one you should get or somthing, anyway, I'm not sure about my preference toward each cd, both are good. I'll have to get reaquainted* with the Ep though, to pick one over the other.


*Hope thats how its spelled.


EDIT: Talk to you guys tomorrow.

I love the music they create, however, upon meeting the guys I think they're rather....dull, but I do love practically everything they've done up to this moment. New album is coming out....

Yeah the new album is coming out and hopefully it will be as good, if not better than Stories And Alibis. MR's songs are really catchy and I always end up having them stuck in my head.

Good Songs:
Playing For Keeps
My Eyes Burn
Promise

The album version of Promise isn't as good as the other version, but it's a really good album nonetheless. I hate how there are 84 hidden tracks of blankness.

edit: wait, 71 blanks.

I'm sure Armor for Sleep will be good but don't look forward to Matchbook Romance, I saw them this summer and it was bad really bad.

Haha. I saw them this summer as well (at Warped), and I thought they put on a pretty good show. They weren't amazing but it was fun.

I've actually seen all four bands on the bill, and I think they all put on cool shows.

At my show they had quite a bit of energy but there vocals were god awful and I mean awful he couldn't sing for crap. We should ask Spence and "hey, your not corey" I don't remember his name, I think its Mike, but not sure. They went to the show in Indy we should ask them if they saw them.

I've got Stories and Alabis. Promise is an outstandingly amazing song. I love it!

hey, you're not cory!
11-03-2005, 12:55 PM
The worst band ever????

No, not quite (thats reserved for Funeral for a Friend) but these guys are defintily top 5!

:amaze: They aren't that bad. My favourite song is probably Greatest Fall. I heard it on Atticus...Dragging The Lake 2, and promptly bought their CD.

There are way worst bands in any genre then MBR, and FFAF.

But there is no point in asking me to name some worse ones because it would just be my opinion.

You couldn't really understand what he said because he used such bad grammar. Did you say something about a new album?
