Song and album art are horrible.
Digging: The Antikythera Mechanism - Pathos
link leads to a news article about a new Empires video
use this one
except don't because the song is trash
God how did this band turn to such cancer
Digging: TTNG - This Town Needs Guns
Best song I've heard from them. I thought the worse than I heard it and it was actually good. You can only go up after their last album!
Digging: Sharon Van Etten - Are We There
the 2nd half was far superior to the first
Digging: Anberlin - Lowborn
I'm excited for this to hear Brian Sella, Jeremy Bolm, and Aaron Weiss
I love the song. This may very well end up being my AOTY.
No guitars are being used on the new album. Wow.
I enjoyed the song though.
At first I was hesitant about having guest vocalists for each track, but Keith Buckley, Jeremy Bolm? Damn.
Song's not bad. Will probably be a grower.
Digging: Braid - No Coast
wow, that guestlist is pretty awesome.
song isn't awful, not very good either though.
p bad song, didn't expect much though because of their post IARB work
wtf is this guestlist
Andy Hull and Max Bemis sounds good...
but all you guys be hatin on it.
Will give it a spin later.
Digging: Rise Against - The Black Market
I liked it, but I'm not sure how I feel about there being no guitars on the album. I mean this song had what sounded like a guitar solo but was apparently a synth, so why not just use a guitar? Seems like a gimmick. I don't know.
Fuck, this is... something. I actually didn't mind Anarchy but I'm not sure what to think of this yet. I hope this will grow on me.
they make one iffy album and you all become turncoats.
andcas' comment on an old SA news article
Digging: Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
Sing it, guys!
MY CAR AND MY GUI-
Digging: Deniro Farrar - Rebirth
I wanted to like this, but
thread is shit but song is good
Yeah nah not feeling it
Digging: Bleachers - Strange Desire
Didn't really like it on first listen, listened to it a couple times more and it's kind of alright now. Hope the rest will be a lot better.
I've never wanted to change my username more than after hearing that awful, awful song
^^ since guitar doesn't exist on this album
i really wanna like it but max is making it really hard :[
his voice sounds so awful now
Digging: Miserable - Halloween Dream
song rules hard
I don't think Say Anything are ever going to recover from Anarchy, My Dear. I really liked this actually, pretty optimistic for the album - just don't think people will give them the chance.
last minute is so good
never going to be as good as IARB again it seems. but I am super curious to hear the tracks with Brian Sella and Tom Delonge.
album will rule
Digging: Mac DeMarco - Salad Days
Was not too happy with Anarchy... didn't even finish the entire album :/.
Digging: Ceremony (USA-CA) - Violence Violence
I need to hear this now.
First half of the song was meh.
Definitely thought Andy Hull's part was cool. I can't wait to hear Aaron Weiss, Keith Buckley, and Jeremy Bolm's parts. It'll at least be interesting.
not too bad. better than anything on anarchy. not liking the heavy religious themes, though, tbh. also, having sherri dupree on so many tracks is gonna SUCK. fuck husband/wife duets.
Digging: Tokyo Police Club - A Lesson in Crime
several of the features sound cool, but andy hull's felt completely out of place here, imo.
"not liking the heavy religious themes, though, tbh"
yeah hopefully it's not too on the nose through the whole album
Imagine how much better this could have been if those crappy synths and keyboards were replaced with guitars
What's with the synths D:
not going to lie: im optimistic about the new album
unwarranted optimism, sure, but hey
tried to enjoy this but it's really fuckin lame
Why did Tom DeLonge agree to be on this album and why did The Front Bottoms agree to tour with these guys?
EDIT: Good lord that song was sloppy as fuck.
let's not question the artistic integrity of the visionary behind angels and airwaves k?
Digging: Dikembe - Mediumship
Well, I like AvA so.....
Feature list is cool as hell and the song is fairly interesting but holy shit the album sounds like a complete stunt. I always thought what separated good Say Anything from shitty indie pop was that punk spirit!/ but now that they're breaking down that barrier I just hope this doesn't turn out like a really happy version of Angels & Airwaves. tl;dr bring back the guitars.
Having said all that, the songwriting on "Six Six Six" is well done, and Max sounds as good as ever; there's a real fire in his voice. Anyway, the song evolves extremely well and plays like a journey, moving through a bunch of not-that-predictable sections but tying them all together with a sense of purpose. If the whole album plays like that, the song could very well be one of its key components.
Digging: Joyce Manor - Never Hungover Again
am i the only one tired of sherri dupree voice? like its starting to get annoying to me now, i didn't mind her on "Say Anything" but the last album and this one it's too much man, we get it u love ur wife, but i dnt see max on any new eisley tracks?
