@ABjordan,

Folk rules hard. considering how much i like it folk should actually be in my pie chart lol. love simon and garfunkel and fleetwood mac and I like flogging molly a lot even though that's more punk/folk.

@Fiery conversation 16 is another one of my favorites.

@Atari yeah I love folk. and the punk/folk combination is killer for the most part. Andrew jackson jihad for example.

this is going to be so fucking awful:


The songs on youtube for this album suck.

Boomerang: You're at my favorite bar, your hoodies in my car....I don't stand a chance, you're hangin' with my friends. Terrible lyrics, but it's a fun chorus.

Part Time Lover sounds like a song he wrote with Katy Perry. He hardly ever sings falsetto for a chorus and the key they are playing it in is pretty high for his range.

Sweeter: she's sweeter than sugar til the sun goes down, don't allow her to sour, just spit her out. Terrible again.

When You Were My Baby sounds like a Justin Beiber song. When you were my baby, you must have done something to change me, 'cause nothing ever seemed to phase me

Collapsible Lung: I'm getting by with my collapsible lung and it's a good time 100% of the time. Terrible again. Although, this is really the only song I have enjoyed so far that they've played.

I don't know what's gone on since Forget came out, but Thiessen's song writing ability has taken a hit. It might be from all the writing he does with pop artists, and these are scraps left over that he wanted to get out.


I'm sad as shit, might write a scathing review if it's really this huge a regression...

Back in my not-so-serious about music days (pre 2010 or so) I used to jam Be My Escape, and I knew Must Have Done Something Right since my friend really liked it. I never really became a fan until I heard FANSD in late 2011 though.

I don't know if I've heard their debut or Anatomy but a lot of my friends are RK fans so there's a good chance I've heard a few tracks without knowing them.
