Thanks. Sometimes the ones that don't connect right away have more lasting power.

Didn't connect or like it much after my first listen...I'll give it a few more tries though. I liked Vessel quite a bit.

I like this album a lot after 2 passes through it (I know, not much to base off of). The funny thing is I love "diggin' up the heart". If that's the weak point...well I guess you can see why I like...

This album doesn't have the high notes some others have had for me, but it's more consistent. I think it's exactly the album they needed to make (even if it's not my favorite).

Good album overall.

Sounds very influenced by Nirvana...I can dig it. I'm not a huge fan even though I've followed them since the beginning. This is good song though and makes me excited for the obviously upcoming album.

Agreed, 100%. I figure Rdio will eventually go away, but I'll continue to use it every day until then. It's totally changed how I access and listen to music.

My fiancé uses Spotify on her computer...

I've used Rdio for what, 3 years now? The mobile app is great IMO. It stumbled a little with an update last year but that got fixed.

The desktop side isn't as good, but that's maybe 1% of my use....

Smallpools album is great, even though we've heard half of it already.

I'm not sure how much bigger they can get. They're 4 albums in and have been playing for what, 7-8 years? They already full clubs and play late on festivals.

Sad he's leaving. TGI is one of my...

Kind of has an MCR Danger Days feel musically, chorus especially.

I agree on your main points of the record, but maybe not as much on past records. I really liked Wasting Light.

I like the record for what it is. I wasn't huge on Subterranean my first listen so I...

Awesome. Just looked the other day and realized I've been using Rdio for over 3 years. Time flies but I still use it every single day on my phone.

Fair enough, thought you were guessing stage locations.

This is a huge area compared to last year.

Get Hurt is an unreal song.

I think it's hard to do a top 10 so closely after an album came out because people hesitate to put new songs on it. I can confidently say that will be in my top 10....

That sucks, hard. I really hope it turns up.


Side more: bands, or anyone who owns gear, make sure you record serial numbers of everything you own. Pics are even better. I'm not implying they...

I'm pretty sure they make quite a bit more than that per show they do know. And other overhead costs will come out of it.

Right? I mean look at the first 3 artists he signed initially: PATD, Gym Class Heroes and Cobra Starship.

Whether you like all of them or not, they all did very well and most enjoyed at least some...

Yep, I won't be hearing this until it's on Rdio. They have 34 other "albums" up so im sure it'll get there eventually.

Awesome. It's raw as hell but still has great production. I can't wait for this album.

Not really possible at all venues. Places like Sub-T don't even have parking for bands so you load out/in in front but then have to go find parking down the street or in the area. Sucks hard.

Bottom lounge at least has parking out front and the side lot where it's easy to watch. I'd be most worried at Sub-T, and also at Double Door
