Band hasn't been good since Ixnay and Americana Era.
Digging: Matt Aspinwall/The Brave Little Abacus - Split
Dirty Magic is on Ignition da fuck
Art looks so low budget wow. But this is assuming it's just the single artwork.
Single is average.
Digging: ABC - The Lexicon of Love
I'm one of the four or five that really liked Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. Single sounds pretty okay.
singer is annoying as fuck
He's like the best part.
ya gotta keep em seperated
"Days Go By." Don't they just.
P.S. Dirty Magic? The hell?
lololol this band
I need to did out my Conspiracy of One CD sometime this summer and have a good ol drunken time with some childhood friends
Rise and Fall was half decent
I hope this is better tho
Digging: Vektor - Terminal Redux
they announced a while back that they were re-recording a surprise song off of ignition
i like their choice
"Dirty magic" sounds like "have you ever" on americana. I liked "rise and fall," as long as this record is not a new "splinter" I'll be happy.
"Dirty magic" sounds like "have you ever" on americana.
i mean insofar as every offspring song between ignition and splinter sounds like every other offspring song between ignition and splinter, then i guess. there's that one part in DM that sounds a little like the lead-in to 'falling...' part in have you ever...
band has always been boring.
lol this guy agayn
Uh huh, uh huh
song is generic and sucks. Excited for new version of dirty magic?
Oh man, I usually enjoy these guys but that song sounded like it could be filler on a bad foo fighters record.
Rise and Fall was average , I will check this out but I doubt there is something as good as americana ,ixany and Smash.
Most of my childhood bands just need to quit....
for example, these guys.
Shit...They've turned into a B-rate version of the Foo Fighters...
Guitar at the end of days gone by was kind of cool though.
Digging: Alcest - Kodama
Huh, I'm sure the radio will get a hold of the track soon enough.
if it's nothing like their first two albums then prob won't be interested
Cuz I got a bad habit
I made shitty music now
then americana came out
they're becoming a bad copy of Foo Fighters and themselves lately
Digging: Brant Bjork - Tao of the Devil
Their singles at the very least have normally been excellent. That was a really fucking boring chorus.
HEAD OVER HEALS IVE FIT IN BEFORE
Digging: Watchtower - Concepts of Math: Book One
they need to make a new Ixnay
being that the offspring were the first band that really got me into music, i'll pick up a copy for
sure, but after the shitheap that was rfrg my expectations are hella low. honestly, that album was
shockingly bad and poppy as hell, especially after splinter saw them put out some of their heaviest,
most aggressive tracks ever. and probably what gets me the most is that not only is the title track a
straight "times like these" rip, but that they're embracing it and making it the lead single. i'll
listen with an open mind, but will be shocked if this is more than a 2.5 in my book (and i have 4 of
their albums at 4+).
Music from the trailer sounds like shit.
social security is gonna die so now you gotta resurrect your irrelevant band to make a buck.
that single is so fucking boring
Ah man, they ripped off Foos - Times Like These! Oh Offspring what are you doing?! If you can't write pop classics like Pretty Fly or Want You Bad anymore, then go in the opposite direction and get back to your punk roots!
My two cents (and i'm probably gonna get wailed on for this) they should do a cover of Waiting Room by Fugazi, maybe recording some of that stuff will get them back into a good writing frame of mind!
i think bob rock likes trying to make singers sound like dave grohl
the last album was a little inconsistent but it had some great tracks
Hammerhead was legit. You're Gonna Go Far Kid and Truism are not only solid tracks on the record but theyre great live.
Chances are most of you will hate the rest of it/hated the rest of it but I think if youre OK with their discography post-Americana, there hasn't been much to hate.
altho i dont knowabout this:
especially after splinter saw them put out some of their heaviest,
most aggressive tracks ever.
but then, SF1991. the man, and a true sputnik legend (and in just over 600 comments!).
^lololol yea maybe i'll feel better about myself when i've made over 21,000 posts on some website hoping my stabs at humor will impress a series of strangers i've never met. and go listen to the noose, never gonna find me, da hui, and lightning rod off splinter. those tracks are easily some of the most hard-hitting ones they've ever done.
It does feel good man

@theacademy, guy you're def. a complete fucking loser if you really take time out of your day to actually recognize so many usernames on a website that you immediately know certain lists and shit from them. and btw i realize my top singers list was BY FAR not the best singers out there skillwise, but it's just who i was digging as singers at the time (several months ago at this point). despite that, i still stand by my position that singers who only sing are not musicians. legit nearly anyone could take a badass sabbath riff and turn in into a good song cuz the actual musicians in the band laid down such a killer track. and it's not that i never listen to bands where the singer only sings, but when the singer tries to act like some fucking diva and like they are the most important member of a band (i.e. steven tyler, brian johnson, ozzy osbourne, ian gillan), they just look like retards. maybe it's because i actually play guitar, drums, keyboard, and bass that i realize that if i were to take one of my orig. songs and just hand it over to some asshole to sing over it and he tried to act like it was his song just cuz he sang on it, that'd be bullshit. and i didn't "go away" cuz of any negative comments or anything, i just have shit going on in my life to the point where i don't spend literally hours a day on this website.
