yeah I think the final song analysis one comes out this Thursday...and I'm fairly certain they will release "Valleys" as their first single on Tuesday. I think I'll like October better than September because just next Tuesday I'm going to pick up CYE, Counterparts, and A Loss For Words, plus I already have NFG's new CD which is awesome. I did pick up Blink, J Cole, and WCAR in September though, and TDWP's new CD was pretty solid. Is Switchfoot any good? My friend told me yesterday it was worth checking out.
I don't listen to any of those other bands, but people keep saying things about Counterparts, so maybe I'll check them out.
For September, I forgot to mention Oh, Sleeper. That was silly, considering it's my current AotY. I love Children of Fire
in an unhealthy manner. I'll add blessthefall to this month as well. I know they aren't exactly well-liked by many, but I think the album sounds pretty good. Not great, but worth keeping in my current music rotation.
Switchfoot's good. It's a LITTLE hit-and-miss, just because there aren't a lot of songs I would lsiten to while driving and such, some are just too mellow for it. That's Switchfoot, though, and they're still good songs. "Dark Horses," would be the most accessible song, I think.
And, yeah, I thought the same thing when I saw that the album preview wasn't out. It is out the 25th, so I figured they would skip a week and do the last one the 20th, the final Thursday before release. That's a horrible thing to do, as I want it NOW, haha.
