Eh, just some of the snide comments make it seem otherwise, but I have no problem with you expressing your thoughts. Regardless of what I have heard thus far I will listen to the album in its entirety when it is available.

And apparently he never will. He's taking a stand to teach the community a lesson. These tactics were taught in art school apparently.

Maybe I misunderstood why you brought it up but - Is art school supposed to be a forum for dissecting all forms of music? I'm in art school now too, and I'm frequently surrounded by Britney Spears and Lady Gaga fans, which seems like the antithesis of the type of music you'd champion as interesting or original. I don't see why being in art school gives somebody credibility on music criticism.

You're retarded.


At least listen to the entire album before you make a judgement.


Or go play in traffic

I went to journalism school which uses words a lot so I obviously know more about posting than any of you.

I'll be sure to go back to lurking for the next six months at which point I can come back to a general consensus that this new album, while not quite as crap as the last two, is still crap.

And on an unrelated note, it's true, I actually learned how to take a stand on DMB message boards at art school in between my bisexuality bedroom seminar and learning how to use my parent's credit cards to blow coke off of waify girls who majored in collage. Right on. Totally.

well, i think its obvious this is more what the band wants to do moreso than a producer. i doubt they would continue to scrap "popular" road tested tunes if that was the kind of music the band wanted to make.

they have been doing this since 1991. their sound is growing somewhat tired to them and they want to do something different and new.

Who cares, there will be haters, there are people that have never liked DMB...
he hates it - well good buddy - don't buy it then, don't go to a show to watch them show it off, and go post about it on an anti-dmb board

Maybe you are into the sweet sounds of Seether and spend your weekends checking out Puddle of Mudd. If you do, then it makes sense that you dig this new music and that's fine. Really. I am not trying to say otherwise. I'm just saying that I started listening to DMB when I was a kid because it DIDN'T sound like this. DMB became famous because they didn't sound like this because they were doing something different. This is different, but it's not original.
All you have to say is that you want songs that sound like "Beach Ball" and not songs like "SMLAM" and "Seven".

A large majority of the songs recorded on the first three albums were songs that were already done and polished up on the road before they even went into the studio. Don't get me wrong, Lillywhite is a great producer and did a good job capturing the sound then, but to act like all that material is due to some stroke of genius by Lillywhite is just silly. He was the fortunate guy that got to produce a very talented band at the height of their most creative period.
