Tom has to go back on pain killers and release a record like Whisper
The similarities between this band and the Used are uncanny
Unreal first record, 2nd has its moments but some filler, then the rest just awful
I'm really not an AVA hater (or apologist), but sometimes I wonder how Tom doesn't get bored laying guitar tracks in studio for AVA. They seem to typically be just palm-muted power chords or a few notes on reverb. I just don't get it.
He has such a gift for simple yet memorable riffs, but AVA doesn't really show it. OK, carry on.
I thought this was a pretty cool video actually. In regards to the music itself, I think for the next album, they have to get an outside producer who they haven't worked with yet, to take them to the next level. A sound above and beyond what they've done so far. Something fresh needs to be injected, because one more album of this simliar style and most fans will really start to get bored I think.
