Losing interest in this band. This isn't bad or anything but I had hoped that getting Jesse back would spark something special, but every track has been perfectly average.

The riffs and vocals are great but I'm not a huge fan of the generic song structure. The chorus in In
Due Time is decent, but this chorus seems a little bland for KsE.

This band can write a better chorus than this, man. Just listen to any of their albums. I really would
have appreciated it if they went back to the Verse-Verse-Chorus formula like in Alive or Just
Breathing. The buildup to the chorus in Numbered Days makes it so much more emotional.

@intotheshit, yeah I guess it might be pathetic, except my username is an inside joke and is intentionally dumb. My name is not even jake. And you're right, your username is sick dude, intotheshit. And I get angrier over something on the internet than in person because you're not allowed to act like such a dick in person or you have no friends and you might get knocked out. On the internet, you're perfectly safe behind your keyboard which is why its so pathetic. The fact that you spend your time going from thread to thread insulting people is disgraceful.

@shadowremains, yeah I said the same things there as well. I could stop, or you could stop being an asshole. And that's another thing that probably shouldn't ever be said. 'Just stop', something you've already said twice in just this thread. And Trantra didn't make a single dumb comment. He has a different taste in music than you. Get over it.

His taste is not 'shitty,' in fact, there's plenty of people who like Times of Grace. I don't happen to be one of them but who cares? He was simply stating his opinion, and you guys felt obligated to call him dumb and reemphasize in about ten comments how shitty his taste in music is. Next time any of you go to insult someone, just think about whether its necessary. At the end of the day, you're just trying to make yourself feel above someone else who you're probably not.

@Keyblade, he didn't throw a hissy fit. He made a joke out of the fact that many people here go to a thread just to shit on a band whose genre they don't even like because they're immature 5 year olds.

What should I do with my time? How bout go to a Beyonce video and write how shitty the music is because I don't like her. "Pop sucks. Why don't you listen to real music, like metal" Oh wait, maybe we should not do that because we would just be acting like fucking idiots. If you want to say a band you used to like has gotten worse, and the song isn't good, fine. But don't go to a genre of music you know you're not going to like and say it sucks. If you want to say anything, say, "I like a few metalcore songs, but this isn't my style." There's no need to say "This blows like most shitty generic metalcore." Who fucking cares? So Keyblade, you didn't do anything wrong here, this isn't you, but I'm just talking about BlackLlama's point. He certainly did not throw a hissy fit. This is a hissy fit.

I got a concussion a few weeks ago so I sat on my ass for a week or so and was fortunate enough to have seen Fifth Element on Tv, one of the many flicks I was able to watch.

I will say that I was certainly entertained, but it wasn't because it was very good. But maybe that's exactly what its going for. I will say I'm shocked to see its at a 71% on RT. I thought it was entertaining trash, personally. But that's not half-bad if you're in the mood. Bruce is a boss.

@andcas, I haven't seen Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or The Scarlet Letter or Lawless and I haven't seen True Romance in a while, but I know he's in those. I was mostly suggesting it wasn't a great performance. That I've seen, he was better in Harry Potter, he was better in Batman though his role wasn't difficult, same with Book of Eli, but again pretty simple, he was definitely better in Air Force One though.

This song's vocals are weak as fuck.

Digging: The Birthday Massacre - Imagica (Remaster)

In Due Time is a much better song than this.

Amazon Japan's page for the album has 45 second previews of each song. It sounds like a guaranteed
3+ album to me. The structure is killing me though. Almost every song has the same damn overused
structure. The good thing is that this album was written before Jesse arrived, so maybe the next one
will be more progressive with him as a song writer.
