someone combined the wolfpack demos to make a longer version and it rules

 

They should have just stood tall and talked to the songwriters of the song they plagiarized in the verse and recorded it like that for the album. It’s so much better than the mess of a version that actually made it on to dream walker imo

Yeah it’s a shame because it’s way more cohesive and the demo is miles better than what actually came out, at least melodic wise. Even the second verse idea had potential outside of the repetition, Tom should’ve been developed it more. The prechorus and chorus in there are some of his best hooks. I enjoy TDW but imagine Untitled-esque instrumentation with that chorus. 🤤

What song did they plagiarize? I really like this version of Wolfpack.

I hate to delve again into Toms lovelife but it's only just occurred to me that as recently as 2014 Tom was still writing songs about how much he loves his wife (tremors, I this case) 

What the actual fuck happened in the years in between lol.

I've been listening to Euphoria a lot.  I'm actually the opposite of most on here, I like the verses the most, even though they sound like Rush, I like the little pauses before the final line, and it just kind of flows.  The chorus gets a little too high pitched or something off about it, but decently catchy.   

"I'm alert this time, like fucking Paul Revere" is so great.

i think it's 12 songs now but yeah. i'm assuming they're not really radio singles. rise records did this same thing with the new afi album. seven songs prior to the full release. 

I don't think Tom needs to worry about radio singles anymore lol

Serious question

Anyone else think its at least questionable how tom says he wanted to write a song against toxic masculinity, but directed a video where the only job of the woman on set is to look hot in her underwear. Also the line "get on your knees, we're gonna play tonight"....

I'm no native english speaker, maybe its meant to be in a satirical way, but at least the music video is a great example how women are are objectified by men...

Am i overanalyzing this?

Oh please. First of all, there are plenty of women out there who would be into “get down on your knees, we’re gonna play tonight.” That’s not objectifying anybody. The lyric has nothing to do with toxic masculinity. Get off your high horse.

No, but it has moments of +44 (Heaven) and Alkaline Trio/Skiba's solo stuff (Black Rain). The album also was a first in terms of writing off Travis' drum lines and having so many song writers/producers involved. It was a shit mix but it sounded overall better than the California era did IMO. 

Lol many wrong statements here where do I begin. 
 

Black Rain sounds nothing like AK3 and nothing like any Skiba solo shit I’ve ever heard. Although I haven’t heard much. But definitely does not sound like AK3.

 

blink has written based on Travis’s drumbeats plenty of times before, go back to Untitled son

Na, you’re just an idiot. You’re misunderstanding me,  not the other way around. And how could I validate your wack ass suspicious about Tom’s lyrics? Someone call Tom and tell him Diddy Faplord just validated him!

Ehhh, it's pretty creepy either way though.

Tom lyrics with sexual innuendos in a non-joking way gross me out. I'm here for the poo poo jokes, not the sexual predation

Yea I’m not saying it’s a great lyric. But claiming it’s toxic masculinity is making Neal sound like a virgin out here lol

are you somehow insecure about your own sexuality? sorry i didn't mean to trigger you

 

i never said that line is per se toxic. but to use that line in a song that is supposed to be this anti-toxic masculinity anthem while you direct that kind of video is fucking weird.

and yeah, the way you react to that line makes it seem even more problematic imo

The way I react to that line is problematic? By stating there’s no relation to it and toxic masculinity? There’s nothing wrong with it. At all. Millions of consenting adults talk that way to each other every day. I’m sorry you aren’t included in that demographic 😂
