Solid jam.

Everyone saying these songs sound like SWIR, please stop. That album was bland and boring for the most part. This song is way better than all of it minus Remembering Sunday.

Dear lord, what is up with these terrible lyrics...

mbao 09/19/12 07:24 AM

Lyrics still not strong, but improved from Dirty Work. I'm liking the song, really catchy but not painfully overproduced. Sounds like a mix of SWIR and Nothing Personal, and while I liked SWIR more than NP and wish they'd also mix in some TPS styles into that, I enjoyed it well enough.

Can see this playing on the radio, for sure. More than I can imagine I Feel Like Dancing, actually.

I'm sure they could have played the larger venues if they wanted to. Paramore, when they released brand new eyes, had already been playing bigger venues (like All Time Low) and went back to HOB for one tour just because they felt like playing slightly more intimate shows.

This.
I'm betting the next headliner they play in the U.S. will back in some of the bigger venues, also i bet this album will make them grow even more, even past the pre dirty work high. (that is assuming they lost a little steam after that record, i personally liked the record for the most part, but there were many who didn't)

I like the pre chorus.

Three years ago maybe, if you've listened to mainstream radio lately, there's pretty much no "rock" music left on it.

Currently, we have Neon Trees, fun., Gotye, and Linkin Park. Linkin Park isn't even getting close to where they used to be. I'm not counting Maroon 5, because there's zero rock left in their music.

Really? Ive only been a fan of the band only since like 2009-2010 so I was unaware of that. You know what year/tour that was? Im pretty sure at least in Cleveland theyve only headlined at our HOB and nothing higher. Even so, theyve definitely gained more popularity over seas and out of the country in general, which Id say is moving in the right direction.

Could you be talking about the Believers Never Die Tour with Fall Out Boy? Because that was more 3k capacity and amphitheathers, but they were supporting Fall Out Boy and Cobra Starship and only played like 6-7 songs so thats not a fair assessment if thats the tour youre speaking of.


Last two shows I've been to we're sold out 3500 capacity room and a big festival they headlined. Their shows decreased in size because of the repetitive sets, decrease in music quality, and now less label backing due to the change again.

Yeah, that fact alone about rock music is somewhat sad. I'm hoping The Killers new record gets some mainstream attention. Even Blink-182 couldnt get a hit single. Sadly, I cant see this making All Time Low any bigger, just gaining back the old fans that wrote them off after Dirty Work.

Right when Nothing Personal they could pull off those size venues. When they headined the last Bamboozle fest they could barely fill the amphitheater down here is South FL, and have always played and sold out Revolution which is 1,000 cap venue.

Pretty much. Weightless was their chance to blow up, and for some reason, that just didn't work.

This song sounds really promising:



Already enjoy this album better than Dirty Work

Label ability. Hopeless isn't a bad label at all, but if 'Nothing Personal' was released on Interscope (and possibly three years before '09), 'Weightless' would have been forced down our throats.

You can't judge ANYTHING off the Bamboozle Roadshow. That tour was an unmitigated disaster and most of the blame falls on John D and the various agents.

Figured, didnt want to assume though. Who knows? I just felt they stopped pushing the song too quickly and moved onto Damned If I Do Ya

I would imagine so, I dont see how he could ever think ATL and BLG could fill up 20,000+ venues, even with help from solid support.
