Can you quote where I said the word 'lie' please? Or are you literally just making shit up to try and bluster your way to credibility?

I think what ste_kenney was trying to say is that you come across as a thoroughly unpleasant and supercilious human being. With more bluster and bravado than knowledge or insight.

But please,...

Ok so once again - the word 'handled' implies a higher level of control than the phrase 'have a say in'.

I'm not saying that UMG 'handled' marketing. I'm saying they 'had a say in' the marketing....

UMG, the world's largest music corporation, had a say in the marketing strategy of one of it's number 1 selling...

The largest music corporation in the world does not equal 'the music industry'. I'm sure your laughter would be justified if I were trying to attribute this sort of level of control to 'the music...

Um. Suggesting that the largest music corporation in the world had a say in the PR strategy of one of their number 1 selling artists is of equivalent scepticism to holocaust-denial?

I'll just leave...

Lol. Naive man doesn't think UMG takes this level of care over PR for their number 1 selling artists.

I'd be careful if I were you - I think you've just described a not-insignificant proportion of AP users.

And incidentally the very people who I meant would care - this whole 'the entire band was...

Yeah because if the band said it is must be gospel, despite any dramatic sonic non-conformance.

It certainly couldn't be because some suit at Universal pooled together all his market research and...

This is spot on and well put. Agree 100%.



This is perfect. I lol'd.



Did this really just get said? Really? The fanaticism of some staff on this site towards FOB is verging on the cultish. I am...

Yeah, Jason's hypothesis that some vague email from the manager saying Tom wanted to do other stuff makes sense as being the final straw that led to them snapping. I'm not sure there are too many...

Charts show commercial success within a narrow, specified period of time. Is that really what you mean when you say...

If he didn't leave, but those posts were "'sanctioned' by the band", that kind of implies he was kicked out. Maybe they got fed up of waiting for him.

I welcome the return to a darker tone. The guitars are great. Musically this is definitely a return to form/best since Plans etc.
