“Whisper into” ”Ass”
not-envy-adams asked: Yeah I understand what you mean. In sorry for being so moody about it it's just that I was searching the tag for "Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For the Two of Us" and I saw tons of posts bagging on Danger Days & how they think mcr sold out and I snapped on your post because of what you had said, but I completely understand and agree with your justification. I've just seen so many people say they sold out because their music got upbeat and I was tired of hearing it. Thanks for clarifying :)
Yeah, “punk kids” can often be really close-minded and it sucks, because out of the general population you would think they should be the most open-minded and accepting. I’m sorry I added to that group of obnoxious Internet goons, I was just being silly. Thanks for understanding.
not-envy-adams asked: Danger Days was good. The fact that it's different from their older albums DOESN'T make it shitty. You may not like it, others may not like it, but people and styles change. And you can't tell me you as a person have not changed throughout your life.
It’s been a while since I’ve even thought about it so maybe it’s not resonating as strongly with me. I still don’t like Danger Days, I don’t care if you do or not; I won’t knock you for it if you do. My problem with it (and the Black Parade, even though I did love that album when it came out and still enjoy hearing some of the songs on it) is that I think they put more effort into their image rather than the music. In the end, this all turns into a debate on the philosophies of integrity in modern music. There is no right or wrong side in that argument and it doesn’t seem like you wanted to get into that one, so I’ll end that there.You are right, over the years I have changed as a person and I know that bands also change their sounds over time. My favorite band is AFI, and if you go through their discography that spans 20 years and 8 full-length albums you’ll hear them change between every single album (except maybe the first two). I love all of their albums equally and respect the changes they make because I know they always put the music first as a band. The last thing I want to bring up is that everyone’s opinions are subjective; you say Danger Days is good, I say it’s bad, and in the end, neither of us has the definitive answer. A lot of people have said similar things about AFI’s most recent albums and in the end I just didn’t really care what they thought because they are random people on the Internet who I don’t know and it wouldn’t be worth my time to try and convince them otherwise. So in closing, I just wanted to ask if this whole thing was really worth your time, because my opinion hasn’t changed, your opinion probably hasn’t changed, and the only thing that has happened here was me providing an insight to one of the most insignificant statements I’ve ever made. P.S. - It’s great that you want to defend your favorite band (or maybe you just like them a little and think I’m a shithead) and that’s great, keep doing that, just in the future I hope you pick the right people to defend them against.
