Cocaine is a hell of a drug!

Wes? what?

OldSchoolReason 05/11/12 11:44 AM

Would not have recognized Wes Borland

TheRealJohnOC 05/11/12 11:47 AM

Matt Skiba has more makeup on than Wes! Whoa!

ZachMadeMeOdd 05/11/12 12:12 PM

He looks like crap honestly.

TAI182 05/11/12 12:57 PM

I don't think the girl could be any less excited.

This record is the biggest surprise of 2012 so far for me .... its really really good

Cøltøn 05/11/12 01:46 PM

Sounded pretty good. Probably the best song on the album and only one that really caught my attention. Haven't really been into anything Skiba (or Alk3) have put out since Crimson though.

He couldn't get Cove to do Voices? Cmon man.

please stop wearing lipstick, matt.

A pretty cool performance, even though the girl's vocals kind of ruined it for me. This album rules though. There's maybe 2 or 3 filler tracks, but otherwise it's all pretty solid songwriting. It reminds me of Crimson-era Alk3. Glad to see Wes Borland in the mix too. He's one of my favorite guitarists and is incredibly talented. Would love to see him possibly get more involved.

Make up aside this song is awesome

agreed, Skiba is on something.

Jaytothesyg 05/11/12 05:02 PM

I love you Matt Skiba

This makes me feel weird though

glogglies 05/11/12 05:26 PM

Honestly I don't think Skiba even understands the music he's making. He's saying it's got an 80's The Cure vibe, and then he's tossing other names like Adam Ant, meanwhile the cd is pretty much just simple punk rock barely different than Alk3. It's an awesome album, but this dude just pisses me off.

InfiniteArms 05/11/12 05:27 PM

Babylon is a great album. This is one of my favorite songs off the record, and this performance is awesome. Matt Skiba is awesome.

You are way off.

What a handsome dude.

He looks lost without his guitar though.

NateFoundGlory 05/11/12 10:16 PM

Album is suprisingly awesome.

sammyboy516 05/11/12 11:02 PM

I'm a casual ALK3 fan and I listened tp this album today and liked it, but Matt Skiba has not always worn make-up like that, right?

Robb 05/11/12 11:44 PM

At least Skiba is still able to make it with the same hairline as me.

edit: nice, dropping the Chameleons. They absolutely don't get anywhere near the recognition they should have.

BigAl 05/12/12 08:02 AM

The album is worth buying for the chorus of "Haven't You?" alone. I love it so much. Matt Skiba is awesome.

hectorial85 05/12/12 11:27 AM

Love Skiba.

Stokd 05/13/12 01:24 PM

Love Skiba but he looks like a drag queen with the makeup and combover. That said, How The Hell Did We Get Here was the song I was looking the most forward to and when I finally heard it, realizing it was about House of Leaves, it put a huge smile on my face. I'm about half-way through right now, such an incredible book that now has a complementing song.
