Nope, it's just not very good. Someone hands you this at a local show, you really listening to it again?

I wouldn't.

Welp. Time to quit makin music.
If only my opinion had the power to make people quit -- we could get rid of so many bands, so quickly. Unfortunately, while opinionated, I am not all powerful. Nickelback still exists. I See Stars still sell albums.

Don't take it personally - once you put something out in the world, it's there to be judged.

Weird hearing you voice your dislike of this type of music.
Not really.

I just feel like there are way worse pieces of music out there that you tend to bite your tongue. This is legitimately the first thing I've ever tried to sing on an wrote lyrics. I guess I was caught off guard with the blunt assault from the owner of this site. I fully expected hate, but moreso from actual assholes.

Everyone's got their opinions so it's whatever. I'm not exactly quitting my day job to do this.
I don't think there's much out there I bite my tongue over -- ever. Kind of one of the pillars of this website has been my inability to filter myself. I'm pretty open about what I like and don't
like.



Don't think people should take me any more or less seriously than anyone else, or someone else's opinion. Anyone can listen to the songs and decide for themselves. But, it's a sunny Sunday and I'm sitting around listening to stuff online, see a lot of comments about a band/song ... figured it was worth a listen ... and then I'm gonna comment as well.

Tate doesn't really have the best taste in music.

Shit rules.
Based on your profile, (American Nightmare, The Wonder Years, Brand New, Fairview), we like virtually the exact same bands ...

Even taking your statement literally, not really.

AP makes intentional troll posts just to rack up page views. There's something on here every week about The Dangerous Summer drama, Emmure, or I See Stars. They post often about the bands they dislike.
You continue to have no fucking clue what you're talking about. But I do love the irony of someone that's been banned from multiple threads for trolling ... talking about trolling. Good times.

I would think that music like this is legitimate enough to either like it, or be indifferent to it. I'd expect you to voice your opinion on way worse music.


Basically, I'm more surprised at you voicing your dislike over something like this, rather than actually disliking it.
Whatever, I suppose.
I don't really have an indifferent switch. I'm more of a love it or hate it kind of person.

Hey, I thought Kenny's Person L wasn't good too. You're in good company.

I'm pretty sure I approached you about this subject in another news post a while back and you said the editorial slant here is to post stuff you like, so by looking at that statement, you'd enjoy ripping bands you don't like too.
What are you talking about?

Yet you still make posts about those bands.
Yep, will still post about Taking Back Sunday too ... even though they haven't released something I want to listen to in years. What's your point? We post what we feel like posting ... we've done the same thing for like 11 years now. This should shock no one.

Except for Odd Future, apparently. Everybody on the staff is required to hate Odd Future.

This EP is pretty damn great. 2 songs in and I'm really enjoying it.
There are people on staff that like Odd Future.

I want to talk about Jonny Craig.

Can we talk about Jonny Craig now?
Mr. "I don't write lyrics, I just ad-lib nonsense"?

Let's talk about that Person L comment. You didn't enjoy The Positives? Not even the first few tracks?
Thought it was super boring TBH. I dunno, like it was a copy of a copy almost. I wanted to like it ... maybe I need to try it again or something -- cause I just could not get into it.

Except for OF can't be posted about at all.

Liking a band and perpetuating the success homophobic morons are two different things.
