This song is trash. I don't know what people are hearing, Tom is better off without these fools he needs to play every instrument and write every line.

Seriously though, not good, Rebel Girl and K&T still the best songs unfortunately.

If those two songs are the best then I'm not sure I should even check this out.

Time to pretend AVA never happened and rejoin blink 🤘

Rebel Girl is the worst of the new songs in my opinion. I very much like Kiss and Tell though. 

Overall I think I'm gonna like this album a lot. I'm enjoying most of these new songs, except again Rebel Girl. Think this is shaping up to be my favorite AaA album thus far. 

I would love to keep shitting on Tom until he comes back to blink (which I'm very certain he will at this point), but objectively, I'm finding a lot here that I genuinely enjoy.  Looking forward to hearing the remainder of the album.

Wow, we're on page 1000

 

Anyway, here's an interview with Guitar World where Tom proudly says he hasn't a clue what gear he uses anymore because computers do everything. 

to guitar world.

Fucking moron at times.

"But by the time I hand the music over to Ilan, fuck! Knowing him, it’s probably old Les Pauls and weird stuff – well, Les Pauls aren’t weird, but I just mean shit I don’t use. "

 

Please tell me this does not mean he gives the guy the tabs to his song and then they record, not him

It sounds like he writes some stuff and gives it to Ilan but it could be that Ilan does an alternative rhythm track, as most rhythm tracks are at the very least doubled if not like, quadrupled in some cases for different tones and such. 

Still doesn't sound encouraging though, Tom can't be assed to record his own guitar parts?

he also trotted out the old "Fugazi, Quicksand and CIV" influences line that he's been saying since press for BCR. when none of his shit sounds anything close to those bands.

also "New Order didn’t know what they were doing. If you listen to their songs, it’s like one finger on the keyboard at a time!" are you fucking kidding me tom? jesus. such a stupid thing to say.

Most of this interview made he sound like an idiot. Like seriously, considering how long he's been a musician, I'm baffled by half the dumb shit he said here.

not even close. you might not enjoy their music, but it's really stupid thing to say about their discography.

I think they're great! But they're great because they're unconventional and lack conventional music training.

Yikes - that’s mad. Hooky is one of the finest bassists of our times. Think I might swerve the interview
