Hey this is promising, if you all hate it I might like it lol

Haha this matches your enjoyment of a lot of the post-Rubin AVA stuff so that makes sense.

I just don't really "hear" Tom in a lot of the post-Rubin era stuff. I could be completely wrong but the melodies/progressions/structures seem unnatural for him based on the rest of his career, which makes me think Ilan has a bigger hand in AVA than anybody else ever has.

(Which is totally fine by the way, he's the other fulltime bandmember and Tom isn't very interested in music so it makes sense. I also have never been drawn to AVA in the first place. But Ilan's vibes just don't hit the sweet spot for me.)

The vocal melodies seem like Tom to me, as do the stupid lyrics, but musically most of it doesn't "feel" like him, but because it's Toms weird space rock project and not blink I care a lot less. AVA isn't exactly an epic quality I'm expecting him to hit, if you have zero expectations it ends up being alright like.

So how has this been out there for weeks and not a single fan has acknowledged it? I’m sure there’s plenty of ava fans on these sites.

I don’t doubt it since the album has been available to the press for months but

Yeah I dunno. It’s definitely not out out for everyone to grab. I find Daves story a little suss cause hasitleaked.com isn’t reporting anything and they definitely have people on the trackers

Yes I’m familiar with private torrents which is why I thought he meant something more special. Even if it doesn’t leak to the public, people know that it’s available somewhere. It’s the number one album on has it leaked at the moment, I don’t see it.
