Dogs Eating Dogs


Live Fast Die Fun

Very impressed with this EP I'm loving it. Think people need to realize if they hadn't broken up after untitled this is the direction they were going. I wish sometimes there was no AVA or +44 because then people wouldn't compare it. This is what blink was going to sound like regardless. If anything +44/AVA were sounding like what blink was going to become at first. Not the other way around. Loving this EP and the direction this band is going, very happy fan right here. And the yelawolf rap is fine IMO.

Dogs eating dogs is my favorite right now. Nice alt-rock song. Lots of energy. 2nd probably When i was young.


 


Boxing day is a decent one, but doesn't come close to I miss you (if that is the direction they were headed for)


 


Verses in pretty little girl are beautiful but it still falls apart for me in the choruses.


Even though I love Yela I will have to get used to that bridge (not saying it's bad, will probably love it tomorrow)


 


Disaster is most likely a grower, right now it's my least favorite one. It just doesn't stand out.


 


All in all: Love it so far! Don't get that weird disenchantment as with Neighborhoods.

I think you need to be more than friendly and nice to be a good producer.

 

In fact, it's probably better to be a bit of an arsehole and be a producer, be honest and tell the band exactly what you like/don't like etc...wouldn't surprise if Holmes is a bit of a 'yes' man.

Not my point at all, Ghent said: "plus he's a pretentious douche bag."  My only point was I never got that opinion from him, regardless of whatever his production skills are or aren't.

I'll agree with ya.  People are complaining about some songs having too much of an AVA sound.  When in reality the most AVA sounding song blink ever did was Asthenia, and no one complained about that when it was released because A: AVA didn't exist yet, and B: its a fucking fantastic song regardless.

 

The problem isn't that a song has an AVA or +44 vibe, the problem is that these bands exist for us to compare to.  When in reality both bands were and always have been the continuation of aspects from different parts of blink. 

 

And I fucking love the rap portion, which is crazy, cuz when I was younger I absolutely despised rap and wouldn't give it the time of day.

Agreed dude, I hope they continue to try new things from here forward like they did with this EP. Would love to hear more guest vocals which I think they will be down for.

ah yes the lyrics, time for those to start getting compiled no?  Or did I already miss that (can't be bothered to look through the whole thread).  No matter the song, these guys always seem to have very brilliant lyrics when working with blink anyway, I can think of a handful of not so great lyrics in AVA.

the last note tom is singing during the ''when i was young'' chorus...sounds out of place with the music notes


 


is it just me?


 


my favourite songs on the e.p are


1. Disaster - epic intro / kinda sounds like 50% selftitled 50% wdntw


2.  Dogs eating dogs - so much energy..just like here's your letter or hearts all gone / cool breakdown / the intro reminds me of the selftitled guitar riff


3. can't really choose between the other 3 .....love them aswell
