After a couple of listens I gotta say that it's so refreshing to actually get the "real" AVA-sound in a new song again. Really hope more songs are in the same vain. 

 

Well yea he literally copied an old AVA song. He literally could shit into a microphone and you’d be happy with it lol. What could he possibly do for you to say you don’t like it?

Unlike the lot of you I don't wan't to hear the new regime or NIN stuff, I want the real AVA sound, this is the closest to it in years, why wouldn't I be happy with that? 

About Tom rehashing melodies well yeah, he's done that since forever. Even WDNTW has that same bridge that comes in multiple songs. I don't mind it, a good song is a good song that is a good song, no matter where he got the melodies from.

To answer the question of what he could possibly do for me to say I don't like it; well, he already did that with the majority of the dream walker.

I don’t like empire club, but I definitely don’t understand criticizing Tom for doing a one time Instagram q and a with the album announcement. You gotta promote the album. He’s doing a separate live on empire club on Friday. 
 

edit: Apparently Tom said he wrote everything’s magic for shrek 2 lol. Now that I think about it, I remember hearing that song all the time on the radio. Must have been their biggest radio hit by far.

The Adventure got play on Top 40 radio around here. Heard it many times over a short period on local pop station over the air.

I never heard Everything's Magic on the radio besides on niche alt stations like KROQ.

Anecdotal, but I'd be pretty surprised if The Adventure wasn't their top radio song.

The Adventure easily out performs all their other singles according to Wiki from a charts perspective. I have never encountered a different AVA song in the wild tbh.

What’s funny is Everything’s Magic stole its main riff from Anthem Pt2 in the first place 😂 

but I respect that you want a return to their old sound, that’s cool

Ehhh ... but not really though. They may play off the same idea but they aren't really the same thing. That's like saying Where Is My Mind (Pixies), Tyler (Toadies) and Amphetamine (Everclear) all have the same riff.

Not just that put legit one on on video chatting lol. 

David did the same thing when he did a AVA-insta live stream last year. I like that set up way more than them just answering comments. It puts an actual person behind the music if you know what I mean.

i’ll hear the adventure in restaurants to this day. marketing machine was strong back then, and profile was higher. no surprises. not a bad tune either. surprised everything’s magic wasn’t bigger at the time radio-wise.

as for the new tune, it’s just fine. tom sounds ridiculous on it, as he does every new song they’ve put out. i’m not a huge AVA fan so i don’t have room to criticize i suppose. i may see em when they stop by atlanta if the price is right.

It's been in many tv shows as well. But weren't they on geffen back then? They have/had the PR money to get it around for sure

It's basically the same notes if I recall correctly. I don't know, I never listened to that shit song. I just remember hearing it briefly and also seeing a bunch of people accuse him of ripping off Anthem Pt. 2 with it. Take it how ya want it.

Pretty crazy that AVA's first single is still the best song the band has put out. It's the only song that has been even somewhat worthy of putting blink through all the shit that it did IMO.

The War and Secret Crowds are good as well, but that's about it.

If it actually had a good chorus it’s an all time great song and followed through on what Tom was saying. Epic song and then boring chorus how

Yea. Had some cool riffs but at the end of the day he wasn't able to put together a complete song without my dawg Mark "Tight Nuts" Hoppus and my homie T-Rav Big Dick
