  1. Took one of my little brothers to the parade in Boston yesterday, it was awesome! Got lots of photos, around 20 feet from Brady, Gronk and Jules
  2. I like this a lot. I hadn't listened to letlive at all prior to Devil coming out, so for me, this is just like a continuation of that band and that sound. I'm sure that's sacrilege to long time letlive fans.
  3. Good album. Papa Roach continues to put out quality content when so many other bands from their style/era aren't and/or can't. Pretty impressive.
  4. Picking the Pats again, 31-28
  5. My first post here in a while to be a homer and pick my Pats and then the Rams. Ironically, I chose the Colts and the Chargers last week, so what the heck do I know about the Pats/Chiefs?
  6. You are the worst, man.
  7. Sorry to hear it man, that blows.
  8. I thought MGK's response was good, but not as great as everyone is making it out to be. About 25-50% of it was pretty soft and not that biting. About half of it was pretty awesome, though. Giving Kamikazee a first listen today. I was definitely disappointed by the last two albums, hoping this is good.
  9. Not a fan of the acoustic version of Starlight. It misses a certain dramatic building up that the crashing drums can have in the regular version. I agree though that I'd love some new Starset at some point, I have listened to the first two albums an absurd amount!
  10. That's probably true. I suppose I'm thinking selfishly when I say I value an album around 10000x more than a concert and I don't appreciate concerts much anymore. That's not necessarily caring for other fans or LP's income, but, it's where my mind goes as far as the quality or strategy of an album.
  11. They shouldn't add anyone. Have the other band members do light vocals from time to time, have Mike sing more (obviously) and do a heavier number of featured guests on the songs. Bam!
  12. I love this album! It's a very sneaky good quality album. The first 6 songs (excluding Watching As I Fall) are hard for me to get through or appreciate on a consistent basis. They are very clearly Mike dealing with Chester's passing and his life being in ruins. I like listening to those songs when I want to connect with Mike or Chester, but they are very emotional, and hard for me to get through. They are also very, quite on the nose about Chester instead of more ambiguous and relate-able to the average listener. I don't listen to them often. After the first few songs, the album really picks up and becomes a little more accessible and are the songs I want to listen to on repeat. Watching As I Fall, Crossing a Line, Hold it Together, Make it Up As I go, Running from my Shadow, World's on Fire, Can't Hear You Now, are all really awesome songs. I can feel the Chester impact on them, but it's not as direct. They could hold up on their own for people who have never even heard of Linkin Park. I love the fact that two of my current favorite artists (K Flay & grandson) are featured on two songs, just makes the album better for me. This is exactly the album that I wanted, and more than I could have ever hoped for after Chester's passing. I get to connect with Mike and relive the pain when I want it, but I also get a piece of Linkin Park (Mike's influence in LP after listening to this is quite obvious) without a direct Linkin Park revival or replacement of Chester that could be disastrous. Overall, I'm very happy with this. The album means a shit ton to me, and it's just a damn good album.
  13. I have always loved his voice and will always love his voice, but, damn, I am bored by this EP. To me, it sounds exactly like 32 Leaves stuff, and very sleepy boring like most of the Codec stuff. My #1 complaint about this type of music is a lack of variation, and this singer's projects are kind of the epitome of that.
  14. Super super late response, but... your'e damn right
  15. Wow, some pretty good reviews here. I need to stop slackin.
