man, the lg consensus about this band has changed over the years-- did webby hire some young'ns
i guess i just don't give as much of a f*ck as i did when i was 14-20
this band is awesome. this record is awesome.
it's hard to do anything but laugh when listening to this band.
What do you people even f*cking listen to?
I did not enjoy The Great Misdirect or that EP very much, but I have enjoyed this one a lot. Glad they threw in some new stuff to make them interesting again.
What was the point of that review? To point out the obvious and fail at it? This album beats colors. Listen for yourself.
"i guess i just don't give as much of a f*ck as i did when i was 14-20" werd.
I found my old CD demo for btbam a few weeks ago, could this be ebay silver? (gold is too much right now)
Real solid album. Not as good as Colors though. Also some funny comments here. Id like to know some of you listen too since you guys are too mature for this band....
So happy with the fact that they have figured out how to reassemble their songwriting skills to finally bring back the element of musical cohesion we hear on Colors. I also wasn't impressed with TGM or Parallax 1 but this album, seriously gives colors a run for its money. I would say better. Ill take the wrap of being called a fan-boy for this one, its the least I can do for the time and genius they invested into this.
stole 5 of these from WalMart and sold them to gays for $5. ahhh dip son!
i enjoyed hypersleep dialogues much more than this one. it's cool how their sound is starting to evolve a little more though-- the great misdirect and hypersleep sounded to me like colors part 2 and 3
The best part of the album for me is definetely: 09. Bloom 10. Melting City
I like the part in that one song where it breaks into 50 East Indonesian children chant the fourth stanza of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven over sweep-picked arpeggios on a Cello and a sample of Mo Money Mo Problems.
this album does not beat colors or exceed the high expectations they left me with after Hypersleep. of course fanboys, who are only looking for the fastest weedles ever, will compare this to colors.
I stopped caring at Colors and it wasn't because I was dumbstruck.
i am disgusted by this crap. gimme a break
So these guys get paid to play music? That's pretty cool. Let's make fun of them for it.
Paid? I doubt these yawnfests make enough to even own a van to live in yet alone a house and a car. Pleased to be giving me a 401k statement, T. Hanks.
most of you people sound like fools and more than likely have the musical taste of infants so go find some new bands that command the respect and adoration of more musicians then you ever will and i gurantee none will compare to btam
Boring album. It seems they've tried to write a more 'mature' album, but at the cost of eliminating any and all hooks, catchy parts, breakdowns etc. They are great live though, saw them again recently
Yeah they do get paid, and very f*cking well. They deserve every penny of it. If you had a brain in your head you would know that. Oh yeah, and by the way everyone knows they all shred their balls off, you sound like an uneducated jackass.
...and for the guy down there...watch some studio footage of The Great Misdirect. There's a brand new BMW parked right out front of the studio. I think they're doing ok...
first half of this cd is forgettable second half is their best stuff they done since colors
I saw them like 20 times for their first album, a few times in bastuffts, one that was broken up by the cops, where they were allowed to play 1 song. So while I'm very happy for them, there's just something missing for me when I see them on such a huge stage.
I found this album to be pretty boring as well. And the "surf" riff as described above, which is actually a 12-bar blues riff, really is terrible. Nothing in their catalog touches the end of White Walls. You want to listen to something really good? Listen to FZ - Uncle Meat.
bunch of gays trying to play terrible metal.
Holy shit...all these haters hating on such a great band. WOW I remember why I got out of metal know. Such a bad scene. Too many KIDS
This album is fantastic. I see people posting about it not being catchy, or having any breakdowns. You want breakdowns, try metalcore. These guys have written an awesome album, and it is far above majority of the metal released these days. You find it boring because you don't have the attention span to listen to something that actually takes skill and creativity.
