I'd be ecstatic if this was a raw sounding record - like Renacer was. This isn't gritty or raw, though. It's hyper-compressed, which is the opposite of raw.
It's like they recorded it to be raw and...

I have to disagree with you on the tinniness of the cymbals - particularly the hat and ride. Those two are WAY thin and tinny to my ears. Crashes are better, but still far too bright for my taste. I...

You're taking valid points and warping them into vast generalizations when they're not. Yes, many, MANY musicians are pulled to music because of the classic rockstar fantasy. Stop trying to move the...

First, I cannot possibly take you seriously when you quote Strike Anywhere and use status-quo defending "social justice warrior" and "overreaction culture" rhetoric in the same breath. It makes me...

Having a backbone isn't overdramatic drivel. I know our generation has been conditioned to be "too cool to care," but I'm gonna tell you something very important - it's okay to give a shit. It's okay...

Giving Jake a platform that allows him direct access to underage girls is nothing short of enabling his alleged behavior. Why do you think sex offenders aren't allowed to work with children or live...

I couldn't disagree more. It's definitely not as hooky and pop-oriented as some of their past stuff, but it sounds like a deliberate choice to me. They brought in a ton of new elements and, from a...

Love the songs, REALLY love the production. The tasteful use of electronic elements contrasts really nicely with the heavy Cure and Queen influences.

I got really excited when I saw this in the newsfeed. Female vocalist sounds great. Male vocalist...not so much. It sounds like maybe he's got some chops, but this cover is not exactly highlighting...

Verses and the "you keep knocking me out" parts remind me of Superchunk. Love it. Glad to hear the synth doing a straightforward lead line again, too. I liked the textural approach on the last record...

I can respect that, but I think if you give it a solid listen through you'll find it's way more more of an even blend between ska and pop-punk than anything else we've done.
