I picked up this re-release of this band’s first record because I really love their latest efforts so i was curious as to how they started, and i’m kinda mixed on it. This song is a great example of what i mean actually. I really like the chorus, and even the verses for the most part. Jeremy sounds his least whiney here and i can really vibe with the lyrics, especially with how they’re presented (they’re things i’ve wanted to scream lately). The band also sounds really tight here during a bulk of the song Their pop-punk driven part mostly. The screams that’re underneath the clean vocals are well mixed too and find this nice sweet spot. My biggest issue with this song is when the bridge/breakdown hits. Usually when they have this tonal shift in their sound it sounds much better put together and flows a bit better. While they try and ease into it, it still sounds really rough and maybe its because the production on this album just sounds very raw and not as “beefy” as their last few records. it makes the more intense section of the song sound a lot weaker than it could had this song come later in their career. It’s all in all a pretty great jam though. One of the highlights on their deebutt
i just unburdened my mind a little in 3 paragraphs but i don’t think i’ll publish it. I’m kinda tired but i don’t want to sleep yet. I’m still full of thought but think i’ve purged enough. I’m going to try and dull my thoughts the old fashioned way for a little while
I’m on my 15 at work and I’m not feeling all that better. I’m still kinda lightheaded and my stomach is still a little upset. I might pick up some soup on the way home for lunch tomorrow and for a late dinner tonight
So tomorrow morning I’m going to add some cheaply priced things to my store and post a link to it. They will all be under $3 (with like $5 two day shipping). So if you have $8-$10 and want a mug cozy or a hair bow or something, watch for that tomorrow.
I kinda need the extra money to pay my phone bill tomorrow night and to have some gas money for the rest of the week.
