I've enjoyed the singles. I don't expect anything revolutionary or genre defining but I'll be happy if it's enjoyable and fun.
^It is. I'm actually really surprised by how good this turned out
Digging: Julia Holter - Loud City Song
Halfway through and I'm digging it, vocals give me a Thrice vibe at times.
I'm a huge fan of both Oh, Sleeper and AILD, but this just does nothing for me. Shane Blay is a great clean vocalist, but his vocals do nothing here for me. I just don't think the vocals fit the music at all.
I think they fit perfectly. Album rules.
Definitely pumped to listen - glad the AILD dudes are still making music and stoked that Blay is a part of this too
Digging: mewithoutYou - Pale Horses
Give it a rest with the caps lock already, jesus
Digging: ASC - Imagine The Future
I dug this so much... such a fun listen.
Wouldn't call this musically innovative but at least it's catchy and well-written.
Listened to about half the album so far and it seems solid. I miss the aggression that ALID had but I'm warming up to the new vocalist.
Wovenwar will probably be forgotten by a lot of metal fans because of their fashionable sound. I agree with the sentiments expressed in the thread thus far; This album is stylistically generic but executed well.
I wish they would have chosen a better band name
Loved the singles and I think I'll love all the album . Will probably give it a try later today .
Digging: Of Monsters and Men - Beneath the Skin
I would rather listen to Awakened.
This is pretty awesome, although I will miss Tim's powervox and attempting to murder his wife vicariously through members of the police department.
It's a really fun album. Just got to interview Josh Gilbert about it and he was really informative about it. Can't give anything away though until I write it up for the site I work for.
Digging: The Named - The Named
I can't find the streaming ... Is it gone already ?
You'll find it on YouTube etc. as the album's out worldwide now.
some good ol' radio friendly don't call it christian, christian rock
Well according to Tim they're not Christian anyway. Besides the lyrics aren't portraying and particular religious stance and Josh said nothing about wanting to be a "religious" band.
I gotta say I like both bands better individually.
