The punk fan base is a bitch. Don't get me wrong. Maybe they wanted to stop playing fast paced punk music for a while now...maybe davey wantd to stop screaming...maybe davey wanted to get a haircut....maybe davey wanted to wear a suit....i'm not sure. but its just such a tough pill to swallow.
Haha, the part about the suit sounded familiar so I went back and sure enough, we had a similar exchange about a year-and-a half-ago.
The irony there is that the album is pretty much a big criticism of what you think Davey has become, haha.
Look wise, that era was a bit of a Moz phase for him.
That look doesn't really correlate with any trend and if anything, goes against a lot of the marketability they had on the previous two albums. And sure enough, CL didn't do nearly as well as StS and DU. They never even acknowledged that and/or seemed phased by it. Seems to me they just do what they want.
