Tom has been in AVA longer than blink. It's been mostly irrelevant at best and a laughing stock at worst.

Time to move on and do something different. I thought he left blink because he needed a challenge or something?

Ghent’s role should be #OriginalAngel 

Do we have any others? 

Dude I've probably never been as excited for anything as I was for the first AVA record. I was fully on board in every way.

Lip syncing in your room to The Adventure, arms spread, ready to change the world with Tom.

It’s interesting, because in reality he left blink because he wanted full control. Which he had with AVA for awhile but now it’s like he’s given over the Rubin brothers full control. But he wouldn’t do that with Mark and Travis. It’s weird. I think he’s become lazy, at least when it comes to music.

Dear God. I don’t even want to imagine all the people who mimicked AVA Tom and his movements. Lord knows many, many people mimicked blink Tom. This thought just made me throw up a little in my mouth.

I don't think he's given over the full control to the brothers, learned to collaborate is the word.

I thought AvA Tom was gay af in action from the get go ... really like Whisper though, just didn't have any desire to see Tom prance around like a fairy princess via music video or live.

Yeah I never endorsed his look or stage actions. Has been douchy from the start. I liked the band image and general sound in the early days though.

The horse he's been beating has been dead since like 2008.

I hated Tom for AVA, hated all the albums, everything about it. I was the ultimate Tom hater. It's like me and Ghent literally swapped attitudes with each other haha

If you listen to AVA today, what album would you put on? I’m looking at you too @Ghent , but to you I maybe have to rephrase the question, if you had to listen to AVA today, what album would you put on?

Chasing Shadows, Stomping The Phantom Brake, and the new stuff.

Whisper and Empire are kind of stale now.

WDNTW hands down.  Empire isn't nearly as good.

I absolutely hated Empire, it was all just a boring trod through uneventful nonsense. Whisper had some balls and the songs hit the way they were suppose to ... everything after that has been a snoozefest.

Empire is "okay" then love 1&2 just ripped of empire except even more watered down. 

Although I'd take those over the new "Rubin" sound.

I didn't like the previous Rubin work but so far I'm digging the new songs. I'm not sure what the difference is for me but it is what it is.
