    What TV show are you watching?

    Even if I don't want to, I'll probably end up watching it sooner or later 🤣

    I don't know if I will watch this, I should take a break from all these true crime stuffs 😂 there is always something new every week!! But I remember the case very well from the news at the time. All I know is that if this would've been a normal working class family leaving their babies unsupervised while they went out for dinner, there would've been a riot and the parents would've been charged with neglect. I remember I used to think it was the parents but it could have been anyone.

    2018 "New Album News" Thread

    The change in their music and style has always felt genuine to me, even when they were polished by MTV, and I can't feel the same way about California. It's all subjective and music is personal so who knows, but this safe route - with some helping hands from the outside - it's very strange for blink. Why can't they do anything by themselves now? They've been on the business for so long to know how to make something different without the help of all these songwriters. If they were able to recreate at least half of their perfect mix of wild energy, sharp song composition and everything else on the new album, then I'd be super happy but now I have my doubts.

    Punk credibility or not, blink always had some punk left in them. The way they used to make music, the way they used to play on stage, the aggression, the tempo, in a lot of cases just the fact that they were not so slick, and even if they weren't considered punk, they had something more than the other bands. Now they don't and it's undeniable. I couldn't care less about them being punk, but I care about them being themselves and not just a washed up version of blink in an attempt to stay relevant by capitalizing off the success of the younger generations in the industry.
  5. Two Step and #41 weren't that bad. I decided to listen to Satellite too but I think it was the worst so far. My final judgement is that Dave is trying too hard to be clever with his stuffs but the result is kinda bland and watered down. When it comes to white american dude music I will always be team Lucero & Wilco.
  6. #41 reminds of Counting Crows but Counting Crows is better and Counting Crows people are better than Dave Matthews people. Okay, I remember Two Step but this one, The Stone and Stay or Leave are too pretentious to me so I think I'm done with the game, tea break time. Jan, don't get mad, at least I tried!!
  7. I'm listening to these songs. The thing is I am sure I have listened to some of them in the past but it's like I've never heard them before. Gravedigger is the most terrible song ever written about a monster truck. It makes sense though that liking the Dave Matthews Band is a prerequisite for being an average white person who likes beer and trucks. Then I was going to say that Two Step wasn't bad only to realize I was listening to Two Step by Def Leppard. I'll keep you updated as I go on with the list.

    Just finished Ricky Gervais' After Life, probably his best stuff since The Office. Very powerful and thought provoking, quality writing. I loved it.

    I think it's easier to expect to grow out of a band to justify the fact that you don't like the new stuffs but the truth is I will probably die listening to Dude Ranch or Enema or Untitled or Cheshire Cat so this means that, to me, California is their problem and this is was it is. I used to like some songs off Cali, now I hate all of them, they're so stale and get on my nerves because look what blink has become, but I'm still here loving the band and hoping for the best.
  12. One can argue that, if anything, over the years Bad Religion have got better and diversified the songwriting, which is very important for a band like them, but in the end it's punk rock and I think that being able to relate to lyrics on a personal level is imperative, and the fact the songs have such a degree of melody and aggression with Bad Religion also being a ferocious live band seals the deal for me, I don't want anything else from them. I don't really play punk rock records because I want diversity, I can have diversity when I listen to other bands and genres though and I'm okay with that.
  13. To me there are bands that have been doing worse than Bad Religion. I mean, listen to NOFX's latest albums or Strung Out or Pennywise, it seems like you're always listening to the same song over and over but I don't feel this way with Bad Religion. Maybe because I like them more, it's all subjective in the end.
