I hope that isn't the case... To be selfish for a second, I'm such a fan of albums. Song by song, or even EP by EP is kind of underwhelming to me. I get that new music is ultimately positive... but I...

At this point, I feel like Kevin Devine is an asterisk at the end of anything involving Manchester Orchestra haha

I heard a lot of whining over Mene when it first came out about it not meeting the expectations of a six-year wait... People need to seriously stop thinking like that. Whether it's two years, six...

They're certainly not a band that has aged well. I mean, Lead Sails Paper Anchor is border line unlistenable... but for what it's worth, Congregation of the Damned had a few decent tracks on it that...

That's one of the problems with Record Store Day. Major labels have absolutely over-saturated it, causing quality control to be much harder to contain. Over the last few years, it's only gotten...

I work at a record store in NJ and for Record Store Day, we received three copies of Deja Entendu.

Two of the people who bought copies reached out and contacted us, informing us that their...

This bores me to death. A lesser version of Madness in my opinion. Can't get into this one. Can't get into Psycho. Used to love this band, but now I feel embarrassed every time I turn them on.

This song has to be a joke. There can be no other explanation. He had to have just been goofing off with this one.

Hah, they finally made that Stockholm Syndrome live outro riff a song... They've only been playing it for 10 years. Took me two tries to get through it. Those drill sergeant parts were absolutely...

You're right. Even with RX. Both bands advertised it as a hiatus. I mainly threw them in there because they both had Farewell Tours and came back 2-3 years later. I have a Thrice Farewell Tour poster...

AOF did the whole documentary on the Dine Alone Records YouTube page where they detailed their entire career, album to album. Each chapter was like 10-15 minutes long, and then they had a "Farewell...

Yeah, I agree... Their last show was December 30th, 2012. So it's been 2 years and 3 months... At what point do these elaborate faux-Farewell tours become deceitful to the fans? I mean, I know that...

I'm kind of over bands doing elaborate Farewell Tours only to comeback two to three years later.... Like Thrice and RX Bandits. I'm glad that these bands are back, because I love them, but c'mon....

"The Dark Knight" Blu-Ray does that and it kills me. The film has black bars, but the IMAX shots revert to fullscreen... It jumps back and forth so much, sometimes multiple times during action...

Believe me, I think language like that is completely unacceptable. I think the band member using that slur is incredibly small minded and ignorant for doing so. I just don't believe in tearing bands...

A member of a band said something stupid on the internet. I'm sure we've all done it. They addressed it and apologized. Whether we "buy" their apology or not doesn't matter. It was addressed and...
