  2. Cranberries was actually the first ever concert I went to along with Collective Soul as the opening act back in the summer of '98. So sad to hear the news about Dolores as she's gone much much too young.
  3. I'm torn on this new one. It's not horrible, but still is more of a pop song than anything. Lyrically, wasn't good at all. I'm leaning more towards not liking it. "Champion," as cheesy as it is lyrically, has grown on me a bit. Now, I'm 2 for 5. Needless to say, I don't have any anticipation of this album at all unfortunately.
  4. I wish they had this when we were in college. We would have saved a shit of money. Remember that one week during the summer when we saw a movie what was it... five or six days in a row?
  5. I wouldn't say it's so much Breaking Benjamin using those same words repetitively in song titles, but really many Alternative Metal and Nu-Metal bands over the last decade.
  6. I didn't want to comment on this until I got a few listens in. It's likely going to be in my Top 3 of the 2017 AOTY. Maybe even #1. While it won't beat "In The Wake of Determination" for my favorite album from them, it very well could be second overall in their discography. I've never been so glad to see them back again.
  7. I don't think I've heard a Breaking Benjamin song that I didn't like. While I do like this one, the overuse of screaming seems rather unnecessary. It just doesn't seem like a song that should be sent to radio. It doesn't hook you in like most of the others that they have released in the past and like others have said, it seems like an album track.
  8. I forgot that they put out an album five years ago and that they were still relevant. Good to know though that new music is coming later this year. I've always enjoyed their material on every album.
  9. I'm in the process of ranking the 125-150 albums or so that I listened to this year. However, i want to give everything at least one more listen to make a determination. Maybe I'll be done by March or April
  10. These guys from the Land Down Under had their first full-length album come out today titled "Disorders of Consciousness" and I enjoyed it quite a bit. If you like fast-driven skate punk like Pulley, 88 Fingers Louie, Good Riddance, etc, you might like these guys.
  11. I live probably just over an hour from Pahokee. Never been there as it's on the shores of Lake Okechobee and unless you're driving through the state and want to take the scenic route to go through those small hick towns nearby, why the hell would you. From what I understand, sugar cane is a major industry out there and most of the residents that actually have jobs are migrant farm workers. Unemployment is very high out there and drug issues and crime are well above average. Years ago, my wife got an interview to work at a school library around there and I fought her not to even go as it's not safe.
  12. That's a good example of their normal sound of pop-punk/emo.
  13. Really liked their last album and this sounds promising. Looking forward to the new stuff next year.
  14. I literally was about to post something very similar. I like the album after one listen, but I'm not sure it's the direction that I wanted them to go in. I kept thinking while listening that it sounded very much like Deftones, but obviously not as good. There's really not a ton of variety on it either as it's difficult to tell one song from another.
  15. Anti-Flag - 'American Fall' November 3, 2017 1. American Attraction 2. The Criminals 3. When The Wall Falls 4. Trouble Follows Me 5. Finish What We Started 6. Liar 7. Digital Blackout 8. I Came. I Saw. I Believed 9. Racists 10. Throw It Away 11. Causalty
  16. Just from these three songs, I can also say that this might be my favorite album of the year. Keep in mind, by the time the year is over, I may have listened to over 150 albums by then. I haven't been this excited for a new release in quite some time.
  17. "The Last of the Real Ones" kind of grew on me, so I'm 1/4 as this one is literally a straight up Maroon 5 sounding Pop song. I doubt no song they ever make in the future will be as bad as "Young and Menace" for me, but this is another one that I would be fine never hearing again.
  18. It feels like much longer than eight years since their last full-length release. This song definitely makes me look forward for their new material. Might be their best that I've heard in over a decade.
  19. ^ Yeah. I don't love the song and I'm sure there will be better ones in the future. If their goal was to get someone to sound exactly like Scott, they definitely succeeded.
  20. Unfortunately, Alternative wouldn't touch anything close to this heavy. Looking back over the last few years, I'm surprised they played Wolf Alice or Royal Blood as much as they did. Unless you're a veteran band on the format, if you're remotely heavy in terms of sound of all, the format won't give you the light of day these days.
  21. I gave this a listen straight through yesterday. All I'll say is after one listen, it's very very different. Heavier I'd say than the band has been in a long time and that's not a bad thing. It will take me awhile to get used to this for sure. Not that I'm complaining much with it clocking in at 1 hour and 20 minutes since the more music, the better in a way. Once I get used to it, I wonder if it'll feel like a chore to listen all the way through or I won't mind it at all.
  22. I wouldn't know anymore. 75-80% of what is played on Alternative or Active Rock radio these days is mostly crap to me, so I stopped bothering looking at charts.
  23. I'm certainly excited for this one. They were an excellent new find for me last year.
  24. I saw that these guys were on tour with Broadside and Carousel Kings, so I figured I'd check out their full-length album "Heavy Thoughts" that came out earlier this year. I was pretty damn impressed as they have a pop-punk/metalcore similar to A Day To Remember sound that I can totally see rise them in popularity in the future.
  25. I listened to Weezer's new album and this today and to my surprise, this blew Weezer out of the damn water. I don't think it's as heavy as their previous work, but maybe that's why I liked it so much. As usual, vocals, guitar riffs, and lyrics are fantastic. This will probably end up in my Top 10 of AOTY out of possibly over 150. Just terrific.
