Re: What grinds your gears?

Maybe if he has another domestic with his partner I'll call the cops anonymously but yeah exactly, we don't want to say anything because all it is is staring. It's just so horrible and unnerving. :( Crikey. I would think you could report this to the cops, and they'd just keep an eye out for the guy...

Re: Y'all still ugly though.

I thought everyone was kind of older, like mid twenties. This thread is disappointing like that post your picture thread - kind of like how you were all uglier than imagined, you're all younger than I imagined 10 years later I now expect everyone on this board to be in their mid-late 20s despite th...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

Lots to unpack here - What top bands have worked with Elvis in the last ten years? Dude has a sheet a mile long, i believe he had something like 6 or 7 number 1’s last year. He is always doing a record for a pretty cool project or writing on something that commercially does really well. Some bands ...

Re: Alter Bridge Questionnaire

Hoo boy, here we go.... 1 - Who/what introduced you to Alter Bridge? Followed from the Creed days. Following the breakup, most of us who were on the old CreedPit board kept tabs on what was happening with them, and when rumors started flying about Mark, Flip, and Brian starting up a new project, we ...

Re: Alter Bridge - VII

I guess it's all "agree to disagree" territory, as I don't hear much difference between the sound quality of the last two albums vs. those that came before it. Maybe I'm just not that much of an audiophile, I just turn on the music and get lost in the content. Unless the production is seve...

Re: Alter Bridge - VII

I find the Elvis discussion fascinating because I don't think I've ever seen a review which has singled his work out for criticism. I only ever see it on this forum really. I'm genuinely curious - are reviewers/journalists in the music world not especially good at critiquing the production side of ...

Re: What grinds your gears?

You know what grinds my gears? The usage of the term "drop" in terms of a new album release, or even more egregious, the release of new merch, a trailer, a game, tv show, etc. The only place the term really applies is in hip-hop, stemming from the old Cash Money "drop it like it's hot...

Re: What are you watching right now?

Since the final season of Better Call Saul just started up this week, I've been working on catching up on the show -- I know I started it a couple years ago, got through a couple seasons or so before getting distracted and not finishing/catching up. So my wife and I watched all of season 1 last week...

Re: Alter Bridge - VII

Something that just occurred to me in light of what we've been discussing in this and a few other threads, is if we could only get an 4-5 song EP, unrelated to any of the albums, produced by somebody else where those guys could branch out a bit and not think of anything they've ever done, just go f...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

So I will admit, I haven't really listened to WTS in a while (I generally don't get a ton of free time to just listen to albums these days, aside from driving to work but I live like 2 minutes away). So I busted it out yesterday, gave a few songs a little listen, and just, WOW. Especially with the a...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

I've been a huge pro wrestling fan for as long as I can remember (and I'm 42 now). My wife doesn't get it, but I have to keep reminding her - I'm not watching because the fake fighting is cool, I'm watching it for the storytelling. Some of it is hokey and bad.... REALLY bad.... but the good stuff is...

Re: Alter Bridge - VII

I'm excited, of course, but I'm also a little trepidatious. I don't think the well is running dry for these guys any time soon, but at the same time, we're 7 albums in now. How long can they go and still put out elite-level records rather that sounding derivative and formulaic? I think that's my mai...

Re: Alter Bridge - VII

I'd love to see them include a banger cover song. Something that could really hit some hardcore mainstream crossover appeal, the way Disturbed did with Sound of Silence. In those early years when they were doing covers in the live shows to fill out the time, they nailed it every damn time. Whole Lot...

Re: Unpopular Opinions - Alter Bridge Edition

Tremontis last album was the worst one he has done. None of the songs connect with me. It really feels like another run of the mill hard rock band. I expected them to continue in the way of ADM, being more progressive. I don't know if I'd say it's the worst, but I will say I expected more. It's a g...

Re: Unpopular Opinions - Alter Bridge Edition

So apparently this is an unpopular opinion, but I thought Walk The Sky was an incredible album (as was The Last Hero), and there's nothing "filler" or "just okay" about either of those albums. I can't think of a single song I skip on either album. Also unpopular - I'd love to se...

Re: What floats your boat?

I bought a pool table! :) Aw man, I'd LOVE to have a pool table! I've never had room for one. When I was a kid, my mom and I would go stay with a relative when we were visiting family out of state, and they had a pool table in the basement (where I slept while we were there). Surprised I got any sl...
