This reminds me so much of Northcote. I love it.

The thing I can't stand about AVA right now is that it started as a band, and while pretty cool and ambitious in its current form, Tom managed to turn the whole thing into a brand. No, there's...

I agree, although I think Dragon Tattoo was the weakest of the 3 simply because it was so long. It seemed like there was a lot of filler. The Social Network is probably still my favorite, but this...

Sounds like they discovered the bit crusher filter on this album.

I think I'm over Yellowcard after this one...Paper Walls was good overall, WYTTSY didn't catch me much at all, Southern Air was awesome, and this one just lacks LP's energy. Make Me So is alright,...

At least for I Miss you and Down the backing tracks seem to not be so much of a crutch, the piano makes the performance a bit better IMO. I kind of wish early on they'd considered doing the Green Day...

I wish more people liked Fighting The Gravity as much as I did, I thought it was one of the best from the Neighbourhoods songs, definitely more Mark than Tom, but really out there. Love is Dangerous...

If I'm not mistaken I thought when they started Justin said he would be involved in the most minimal way, in the background. He may end up on the album(?) but I don't think he'd be touring with them.

I like the weirdness, for lack of a better word...really good production, lots of layering, parts played backwards, real life background sounds worked into a studio, but after listening to the...

Reminds me of older Fall Out Boy meets +44 with female vocals. I like.

So for those of us who got lost sifting through a few of the 800+ pages, does anyone have a short summary of what we're looking at? I saw mention of letters and prints at some point, did people start...

This. I like the EP, but I'm honestly more shocked at the AVA EP...I didn't care for anything past the first album really, but their new drummer (he used to drum with Nine Inch Nails for a bit)...

Ilan Rubin definitely shapes the sound of some of these songs, holy crap. I haven't really liked much since a couple songs on I-Empire, but specifically New Blood and Reel 6 sound very heavily...

Title track is definitely my favorite. Reminds me of Filthy Habits by The Flatliners. The bridge part is amazing, great drumming. The interlude in When I Was Young is pretty cool too, closer to the...

This is a pretty awesome start, if you ask me. The drums remind me of The Offspring's "Why Don't You Get A Job", Motion City Soundtrack's "Timelines" and a little like Yellowcard "Here I Am Alive". I...

It's a toss-up but I'd have to say "Ten" is my second favorite runner-up to "Telescope". The best line that gets me is "All the stars jumping in through the windows", for some reason it resonates....

I don't really see the similarities between this band and Brand New, to be honest, aside from some delayed, reverbed, droning guitars. That said though, I really like it, hope these guys put out a...

Nailed it. Never been a huge fan of Lawrence Arms but the Wandering Birds album is amazing, really looking forward to hearing more of this new material though.

No idea, sucks they only put out an EP and haven't really done anything after. At least I think?

Love Skiba but he looks like a drag queen with the makeup and combover. That said, How The Hell Did We Get Here was the song I was looking the most forward to and when I finally heard it, realizing...

Never really got into TBS but Mike Sapone is currently one of my favourite producers. When I found Crime in Stereo and Brand New (about 10 years too late, just heard Daisy and started working...
