  1. Koldes received reputation from spirestar in Sevendust + Rise Records = Profit!   
    I don't think Omar and I speak for the majority of people, we're probably in the minority. 
    I enjoyed the album, just wasn't absolutely in love with it. I remember enjoying the first half since "Yay new Sevendust!" but got bored towards the end. I'll give it another listen to confirm.

    Hahahaha
  3. Koldes received reputation from MU_BeastMode in Mike Shinoda - New Music   
    This makes me so happy. This is exactly what I want. The idea of future LP, but more music from Mike without pushing into LP right away with moving on w/o Chester, or replacing him decisions need to be made, etc. It's what I need for my soul. And of course, on a less selfish note, I hope it helps him. 
    I like that he has emphasized "My album" instead of "solo album." It's a little less "Oh my god, LP is over" and a little more "He's just doing this for himself." 
    I teared up a little bit listening to a couple of these. I kind of feel like I'm there with him experiencing this loss a little bit.

    Welcome back. Where have you been and what made you come back?

    I think I know which side I'll be on!

    Looking forward to hearing what they can do, but, honestly my hopes aren't too high. I'd love to be proven wrong and have them put out a killer album.

    ah dammit, the search got me on this one - I blame the shitty search engine  
  10. Koldes received reputation from Lucas in Nothing More- 'The Stories We Tell Ourselves'   
    So happy to see Go To War getting attention. It's my 2nd favorite song off the album, but, it's just such a timely and relate able song. I don't know if this is obvious, or if I'm seeing what I want, but I've likened it to our political discourse where we're always fighting against each other instead of for each other, etc. Very timely and close to the heart.

    I agree with just about everyone here on the analysis that this isn't Red's best album. I enjoyed it a lot, but it's not their best.
    But, I would go one step further. None of our favorite bands from the late 90s/early 2000s who are on their 4th, 5th, 6th or more albums are going to put out their best album in 2017. It just isn't going to happen. It's is a different day and age and times have changed. I think a more apt analysis or comparison would be Red's Gone vs 10 Years' Ghosts vs Seether's Poison the Parish vs Foo Fighter's Concrete and Gold vs Papa Roach's Crooked Teeth, as opposed to say, Red's album 1 vs 5.

    That theory's not been proven yet. See what I did there?

    He made a thread anyway. That must tell you something. 
  17. Koldes gave reputation to Follow the Hollow in Otherwise - 'Sleeping Lions'   
    It's definitely varied from their other records.  "Suffer" opens with a piano intro.  "Sleeping Lions" chorus sounds reminiscent of new era Korn.  "Weapons," "Close to the Gods," and "Dead in the Air" have some electronic sounding elements going on throughout the songs.  "Beautiful Monster" has a hip hop sounding beat in the verses and a rocking chorus.  "Blame" has a really cool sound at the beginning.   It's a well rounded record in my opinion.  There's some heavier and lighter songs, some singing and some screaming.  It's not my favorite album of the year, but as of now it'll probably be in the top ten for sure.

    He has watched you fade in...
    ...you will watch him fade out.
    When the grip leaves his hands...
    I know you won't let him down!

    I was thinking to myself "psh, y'all are being over dramatic about this 'Fade In/Fade Out' song; Nothing More is good and all, but they're not on the level of bands that make me cry or call my parents" 
    *listens*

    *starts crying harder than I have in years by the time of the first chorus*

    *calls Dad at end of song with voice shaking to tell him I love him and appreciate everything he's done for me*

    Actually it's their 5th.  I obtained a physical copy of Save You/Save Me from @Cliffo when he was still posting on here

    After several listens of this album, I think I can confidently say there's no other band in active rock doing it better than these guys. The songwriting is so mature, and fresh. They set the bar for everyone to follow.

    Super pumped for some new Red. These guys always rock it out and I agree with the OBAR comments (variation). I like that they announced it only a bit over a month from release to not feel like we're waiting forever.
