I was pretty vocal about believing Tilian was a bad choice.
Then I saw him on the recent tour. It works, amazingly well.
There were a few stylistically choices I didn't care for, but he KILLED it on Kurt songs (they actually played more Kurt era than Jonny era).
I'm more of a Kurt era fan to begin with, still say Happiness was them at their peak.
I saw the live set that was posted on her with him in it, and I wasn't too impressed. It's like he tries to do his own thing and improvs over the songs and it becomes grating. Could it become polished? Yeah, I'd say so.
I just feel like if Will decided to do a project with Geise anyway, why not add him in DGD over Pearson?
I get it that guys like Tillian Pearson, Kellin Quinn, Craig Owens, Vic Fuentes, and others have their "high voices are the best voices" cliques, but come on, you know?
The highest DGD vocals ever were on WISIRO, and it didn't stick because the band progressed.
I feel like this band was on the right track, then they went off course, and phoned in a cheap reunion record.
Last thing a band like DGD needed was another ridiculously divisive decision.
