  1. They're 2 for 2 for me as well. Two completely different songs, but that's a good thing in my mind.
  2. I actually really like your viewpoint on this as well because it's a very fair assessment. I respect that we all have different musical tastes. I personally can't understand how easy it is for someone to enjoy this song. Especially, the chorus which feels like nails stabbing me in the ears, but I respect that people at least appreciate of why they like the song. Not just because "Well, I'm a fan of Fall Out Boy and they can do no wrong." I do applaud the band for trying something different even I may really really not agree with the direction they're going in. Like I said with Linkin Park's new material, I don't like the new sound as much as everything else they've done, but I like how they're trying something new. It's rare that a band keeps their same sound throughout their career and it continues to work. I think the thing that irks me most is how it seems to be that they're trying to be someone they're not and is focusing on staying relevant within popular music while others of their kind have fazed out in the mainstream. As John said in that video above, Patrick does have a fantastic voice, but it's barely being showcased in this song as they made it incredibly high-pitched. I also don't understand why they keep considering themselves in the rock genre. For the most part, they have been closer to a pop artist than rock in the last ten years. Nevertheless, I will be checking out the new album as I always do with Fall Out Boy. I haven't really been super impressed with them in probably a decade, but I'm willing to give it a try. Of course, for my sake, I'm really hoping there aren't similar songs on it and I can just skip this one.
  3. Release Date: April 28, 2017 1. Your Jokes Aren't Funny2. Party on Apocalypse3. Call Me Anti-Social4. Happy Being Miserable5. The Sound Of Two Voices6. Blurred Vision7. Say It Don't Spray It8. Barbed Wire9. Short and Sweet10. The Cheapest Thrill
  4. I completely agree with with John from ARTV who is one of my favorite music reviewers to watch on YouTube. I'm honestly angry and upset in a way at the band for releasing a song like this as a fan since "Take This To Your Grave." I feel like over time, they've tried to stay with the trends in pop music rather than make their own original stuff and it's like a stab in the back to the long-time fans that appreciate them for their typical sound. I mean this doesn't even seem like a song to me. Just a bunch of all over the place sounds and noises that will likely be massively huge. I won't be surprised if you think about what is relevant today in pop music.
  5. I mean I don't love them. I don't dislike them. They just sound like typical Stone Sour material, which isn't a bad thing. I'm not into heavy sounds as much as I used to be, so I'm not amazed with them. I'll certainly check out the album when it's out.
  6. I really liked that tune. Especially, after hearing the new Fall Out Boy, it sounded terrific. Sure. They're lighter than most of what we all listen to, but they've been consistent for me on each album.
  7. I know this sounds super harsh, but I never want to hear that song again. It honestly is one of the worst songs I've ever heard. That dubstep and chipmunk vocals were beyond awful. Fall Out Boy has been downhill for me since "From Under The Cork Tree," but at least they've been tolerable to listen to until now.
  8. I didn't really have much of an opinion after one listen on Friday, so I gave it a second try today. It's not my favorite Incubus album by any means, but for the state that they're in now coming back after such a long time when "If Not Now, When" was released, it fits. "Nimble Bastard" reminds me of something off of "Crow" and think it was a great lead single. Nothing really seems boring to me, but I wouldn't say there's many tracks that really stand out. "State of the Art" stands out to me more than others and I like the variety and now humor that they added into it towards the second half of the album. It's right now #10 on my AOTY, so I'd expect it to end up somewhere in the 20's on my final list. Not bad considering I listened to something like 135 albums last year and probably will do it again.
  9. This album overall is much better than I imagined it would be. The main thing that turns me off though is what always bothered me with this band to begin with. The lyrics. However, they're only super cringy in a few songs. Overall, if they wrote decently mature songs 100% of the time, I'd say they're not too bad.
  10. As of now, I've listened to 31 albums so far this year. 1) Creeper - Eternity, In Your Arms 2) Shinobi Ninja - Bless Up 3) AFI - AFI (Blood Album) 4) Carousel Kings - Charm City 5) The Menzingers - After The Party 6) Can't Swim - Fail You Again 7) As It Is - okay. 8) Gentlemen's Dub Club - Dubtopia 9) You Me At Six - Night People 10) Incubus - 8
  11. This didn't blow me away like some of their other songs have in the past, but it's Rise Against. It's going to sound awesome to me no matter what it sounds like.
  12. That's an absolute incredible lineup. Too bad I don't live anywhere close to Chicago or I'd certainly go.
  13. It's a change of pace for Paramore's sound, but I really liked it with a huge amount of 80's influence in there. Like Linkin Park, I'm glad they expand their sound with each album. Is it for the better? We'll see, but this song has been stuck in my head all day since I heard it this morning. It gets a thumbs up from me
  14. SO. FREAKING. STOKED. Don't be surprised if this ends up being my AOTY.
  15. I saw he was opening for The Menzingers, so I've been wanting to check out his stuff since then. I like how even though his main style of music is punk, he also mixes in some piano work and softer sounds. He also had a newer album come out last year, which I listened to after this one. It seemed a bit more punk-oriented and I enjoyed both albums a good amount. I'll give this album a 6/10.
