I think they're about 15 years too late to the 00's Hot Topic emo scene

I mean, this album is literally the best thing this band has ever done. Their previous work was mediocre at best. I'm excited as hell for this album.

it's okay, but Patty Walters (who is a chode) is trying way too hard to be Gerard Way. I'm gonna pass on this and just wait for the crazy eightyeight album to come out.

Finding the whole concept of this album to be really gimmicky and pandering. Who really buys into this shit.? Seriously, who actually thinks they're being genuine with this garbage? It's so manufactured. At least their first album didn't try (overly) to be anything more than basic fun pop punk.

Patty (the vocalist) has been pretty vocal about this stuff for a while, not really a gimmick.

For me, these two new songs are far and above their best songs written to date. This new album will easily be their best

Except it's not their own identity since they're ripping off every emo band from 2004

What kind of argument is this? Who cares, as long as the music is good.

Do you think when Kendrick Lamar released TPABF he was thinking " Jazz was so 70s"

"Do you think when Kendrick Lamar released TPABF he was thinking " Jazz was so 70s"

No because that album takes pages and elements from the jazz and funk scenes and expertly weaves it into its own flow and structure whilst adding flourishes and touches of its own and maintaining an original identity

This on the other hand is just blindly aping a scene that - as said above - died like 12 years ago

This sounds exactly like the kinda stuff 15/16 year old me would have been into. But yeah, it's pretty average but this band were always a little too poppy for my tastes anyway
