I wasn't impressed based on the 15 second clip - there's something about his voice that just doesn't have the same urgency as the original.

For real. I've never seen them play live, and I was maybe 5th grade or middle school when Ixnay came out, but I can spin that still today without missing a beat. A lot of good guitar riffs, and just...

If you think it's lightning in a bottle, you have to check out Ribbons and Sugar, In the Land of Lost Monsters, and Why We Fight - all three are fantastic. Their cover of The Cure for Punk Goes 80's...

Not reading through all the pages to see if someone else commented on this or not, but there is a definite similarity in the opening guitar riffs. It's very, very close. The rest of the song is...

Instrumentally, I don't think this sounds the same, but vocally it definitely does. I like Parkers voice, but honestly, I don't think there's much diversity with his delivery. Almost every song is...

True, but just like I'm not going to let one moron make me think poorly about an entire state, I won't let that one sentence cloud over what was otherwise a great message.

At the risk of opening up a can of worms, what was the general response to this album? While a big fan of Say Anything, it didn't resonate with me when it came out, so I kind of ignored it.

damn - only a 7? i feel like this is their best work since transatlanticism. I would consider "no room in frame", "ghosts of beverly drive", "everything's a ceiling", and "good help is hard to find"...

Don't worry, you articulated your point very clearly, and it made complete sense. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to acknowledge the validity of your points, it just takes a serious...

I guess what I'm asking is two things, and not specifically to you, but to anyone.

1) Knowing that there are all sorts of opinions about hot-button issues like this, shouldn't a professional...

despite the title, the tone of the article reads to me like there isn't a problem with pronouns, there's a problem with respect once it's been made clear which pronouns are undesired. it'd be absurd...

I'm sure he does - why else would he want to cover the song? That passion for the song alone doesn't inherently mean it's a good cover.

Based on that situation, I'm sure he does have the desperation...

Unfortunately, I don't think he does the song justice. There's something about the original that oozes a desperation that I don't sense in this cover. A lot of it probably has to do with his...

I would love to see Tom do all this stuff and really knock it out of the part as a big "fuck you" to the comfortably anonymous naysayers.

The truth is, none of the guys look good in the aftermath...

she sounds awful. nowhere near as good as the original. in addition to the awful singing, this song just doesn't have the same tempo and punch as the original.

The eternal opening act! I can't remember how many concerts I went to during the early/mid-2000's where Punchline opened for an awesome band - they seemed to be on almost every tour. Can't question...

These have been fantastic. I can't help but feel like Will is really straining hard to reach some of those notes, but they always sound effortless despite the way his face looks.

Were any of our specific rights taken away by this action - no. Does this open the door for our rights to be threatened later, yes. Kind of similar to the Patriot Act, which said the government can...

This is only a partial win, in my mind.

As Ron Paul stated, "The adoption of these FCC rules on the Internet represents the largest regulatory power grab in recent history. The FCC’s newly...
