Where? I might just be dumb, but I don't see it. Or did they send it out as a bulletin?

I wanted a good album from them so badly, and hell, I'm not that hard to impress when it comes to Goldfinger - I even liked DN for what it was when it came out. But I'm tired of half assed songs that are over produced. The cd starts off pretty strong but then goes downhill pretty quickly.
And as a huge fan of GF for so many years, I am pissed off at John for "Handjobs for Jesus". I know he has never been a fan of religion, I hear him at his shows make comments, but serisouly, isn't this the same guy that preaches about anti-bigotry and anti-hate.. what the hell is this song about? I have sat there and taken all of your animal preaching, I've even looked up some of your sites and read the literature.. however, don't you dare tell me that you know better than me when it comes to religion.
What happened to the fun band that put on one of the best live shows around? Oh yeah, their lead singer became a douche and became more concerned with producing Ashley Simpson and Hillary Duff..

GF, I'm out as a fan. It's been a good 12 or so years.

You know whats funny ... everyone has the balls to say about Christianity ... i never saw anyone to say anything about Islam and their prophet Muhammad. It's "cool" to bash Christianity cz no one will do something bad to you .. not like Islam .. !!!! i dont know if you ever heard this one .. i saw this on news .. a singer said something in his song about Muhammad and people took it in a wrong way and the next day he was found DEAD! come on John dont sing only about Bible, if you have the balls say something about their Koran ...

haha, I guess I'm overreacting, its just disapointing for a band to disappoint you 3 albums in a row. Maybe I'm the sucker for giving them 3 chances, but its just annoying that their first 3 albums kicked ass and then as soon as fedlman started collecting those USed royalty checks, his songwriting ability went from "here in your bedroom" and "superman" to "I want to marry my stalker" and "handjobs for jesus"

Not on the front page, but click on their most recent blog entry titled "Tour - and New CD."

If you liked Stomping Ground, I don't know why you wouldn't like this one.

You people are all crazy

I like everything goldfinger has put out, although i admit disconnection notice wasnt great. But i dont see how people cant like this cd, 'get up' is catchy as all fuck and sounds great. Handjobs and Julian are a fucking disgrace, but other than that, i dont see any other problems with the cd

Hang Ups & Stomping Ground are my GF favs albums, but Hello Destiny isn't bad at all..
thnx for the review... I really enjoy the horn section in the album.

I miss the Hangups and Stomping Grounds days lol. Still considerably better than Disconnection Notice, at least!
