    for some reason I really want to like them, so I always check out their new shit - that's what brought me here

    plus my post was constructive to what was being discussed... we're talking Yip too

    but thanks, policeman - I will not stray further away from the thread topic

    Don't really see a problem with the post tbh. It's not like he popped in just to say he doesn't like the band, he contextualized it within his other comments on Yip

    and a little jingle...

    No, no haha. Sorry, I came across the wrong way. I just thought it was a weird thing to say, given the thread we're in haha. All good :)

    Can we mention the awful title?

    Yep, reminds me of The Blackout who did one called Start the Party or something, legitimately one of the worst albums I've ever heard.

    how about you actually find out the themes of the album and why they chose the title, or hear a song before you judge?

    The title is totally fine/innocuous

    Of course not, the fact it has similarities to an album I hate automatically means it's definitely going to be an awful album

    it wasn't mostly you i was going at, the fact that *anyone* can judge an album title (or art, but that's a whole different story) fairly without knowing the record as a whole is a little wacky

    It's my mum's dodge caravan

    Yeah exactly, was more a throwaway remark than anything tbh. Same thing when people were decrying the new Hotelier album because of the art on that, pretty sure any band mildly concerned with the quality of what they produce puts significant thought and reasoning into the art/title/tracklisting/whatever

    i also consider art/title to be more important to the personal meaning of the artists rather than what a listener takes from it...most bands wouldn't put anything out that they don't find incredibly significant and important to the art

    last record was pretty forgettable, but otip is still good so let's see how this goes

    yep, you can't really view art/title as individual, separate entities to the music as it's all part of the same cohesive work of art, so they have to be significant to it. and i don't think any band writes any music, let alone album art without having it predominantly focused on their own personal meaning. if fans can extrapolate their own understanding from an album, great, but i don't think any bands write with the intention of it having any other implicit meaning that isn't their own

    do people not like the way PBTT's Keep You sounds? I didn't know that was a thing. i LOVE the way it sounds.

    Pumped for new Menzingers no matter what the title is or who the producer is, but also, doesn't it say that Yip has produced their 4 previous albums too? If so, I didn't notice anything unfavorable about the production on those, so I can only assume this record will sound fine.

    Not all of yip's production is bad....Polar Bear Club's Death Chorus is pretty great.

    Agreed. Thought that album sounded great..same with La Dispute's. :Shrug:

    Excited for this, been listening to these guys a ton lately. So good. This will be a great year for music.

    Will Yip produced two of my favourite records of the past few years. The Things We Think We're Missing and Keep You. This record will be great.

    Jesse Cannon did their first, Matt Allison did the middle two, Jonathan Low did the last one

    Thanks for the info. What's with this quote, then? "Today we finished tracking After the Party, our fifth album with Will Yip..."

    this is exactly why (though i know it's not this situation) the oxford comma is important, makes our already stupid language a little less ambiguous
