    I prefer bouncy/groovy Box to acoustic/folky. Both are great though.

    I still can't entirely get into TCD. Like it, definitely, still haven't fallen for it like I have the others

    See you in hell, or see you when I see you. Prestigious

    I keep going on Box sprees where I just listen to them for like 3 months straight then forget about them for a while then go back and repeat forever and ever

    Love them so much tho

    it's the best one, I'd say

    Drama > Flies [HUGE GAP] > American Art

    If you had to explain why you consider it far and away their best release, what would you say why?

    a burst and I'm awake now Supporter

    I must admit I don't dig Flies anywhere near as much as TCD or American Art, which bums me out. I can appreciate the record, but Kick-Flips is really the only song I come back to with any regularity.

    give it time, man

    for a moment there, I thought it could reach Drama greatness

    it didn't because, frankly, Drama is one of those rare records where planets allign for an artist and lucidity settles in and everything works beautifuly - the madness of it, the songs, so much fucking pathos - Flies didn't stand a chance

    so yeah, being second best to something like that is not bad at all

    and it's a cheerful, life affirming alternative to a difficult, heavy record

    Flies is cool

    Flies is so life-affirming! Drag Out, The Drones, and Ghost Malls are so bright and perfect next to each other

    yeah

    it doesn't get any better than the The Devil + Dark All Night one-two punch

    (BoC is soook good, listened to Music Has today and oooh god)

    hope this just means a break of like a year or so to get back on track

    fall away

    i listened to AJ's recent interview (which you can listen to here) and he says that they have new material written and theyre planning on recording at some point soon. seems like a lot is up in the air because brian is sitting on a "massive wealth of unreleased material"

    he doesn't mention anything about a hiatus though. hoping there's an update at some point soon

    What the fuck....

    still emperor emo Prestigious

    i mean, the band has taken multiple "hiatuses" throughout the years, where they don't do real touring or anything. how many real shows did they do this year? they're just making it clear so people don't ask

    :(

    i miss them

    they've played a lot of shows in the SD area tho, this makes it seem they're not going to be playing any shows for a good while, maybe a year or longer
     
  22. cwhit

    still emperor emo Prestigious

    yeah i know. still think they could use the rest, especially with brian's history

    nooooooooooo!!

    I was hoping to catch them at some point while in NYC... :(

    new album would almost compensate for lack of live shows tho

    on the other side, I'm glad Brian gets some rest

    "Fuck you, Peaches!" Prestigious

    Fuck. I might have to go to that.
    I've had Dark All Night stuck in my head all day.

    Edit: damn. Why does it have to be in the middle of the week. Probably won't make it.

    I was born in a swamp, born with no clothes on

    Sounds like they may be taking a break to record a new album (fingers crossed) but then again they release music as sparingly as Brand New...
