Yeah, hey. Get the fuck out of here. The breakdowns are awesome, because, guess what? Some of us actually like head-banging, and i love the callouts before breakdowns. On another note, it seems all you highlighted at the end of your review just continually pointed to record sells and money as a tip to ADTR's success. You're a jackass for reviewing this way; take into account that true fans resonate with this record, and these songs. Yes, you're damn right they'll play it over and over again for months, and it'll be the best of the year for them. You know why? Because they're a TRUE fan. You claimed "there isn't any beautiful poetry on this album to be found"...obviously, you don't connecet, and you don't get it. It's the connection to the words, and a connection to the songs. Again, true fans relate to these lyrics and this music. But, i guess this is what you get paid to do. Listen to shit you don't really like and then tell people why you don't think it's good, or do think it is good. Since you didn't directly disrespect ADTR, i'll indirectly tell you what they would probably want to tell you: So, in the words of their lyrics from 2nd sucks GET THE FUCK OVER IT!

Lol it's a mostly positive review so I think ADTR would just rather you chill out and not speak for them. Haha relax dude.

I love how the things you complain about (the mosh calls and breakdowns) are some of my favorite parts of ADTR's sound, haha - these guys play fuckin' excellent easycore.

Quote from review: "...while we’re talking about respect again, I’m pretty capable of seeing the bigger picture in this case: A Day To Remember is the biggest band in the world playing this genre of music and they have firmly planted their collective foot as being the best at it." Pretty sure this is me acknowledging the band for being the damn good – even more, the biggest and best – at what they play. I fully understand that there are fans of this band? They are enormous? Is it not obvious throughout the review that I'm aware that people love this band?

You say I "continuously" talk about record sales when I actually only bring up sales twice: "I hope you sell a zillion records and use that money to buy more horses" ... "Their last two albums have sold half a million records combined in the United States" ... neither of these use record sales to diminish A Day To Remember's success in any way.

That's super cool to me, that this band is still making great records for their fans. It's not like I wrote this review for ADTR's fans, though. If some people don't like it, I'd understand that. You don't need to tell me, though, that what I wrote was correct – I very much know that people love this band, will play this record over and over again, etc. That's why I wrote it

In my senior year of high school I heavily related to a lyric that goes, "Everything is going to be okay / All we need is Kerouac and a glass of sweet tea or burritos and New Found Glory." That doesn't make it beautiful poetry. I never said that Jeremy McKinnon's lyrics aren't relatable so I'm not sure why you drew that connection in your mind!

I kind of think that the band would appreciate a reviewer who isn't a fan of their genre taking the time to appreciate / respect their new record despite not being a personal fan of the sound.

Thanks for using your first post on this website to be mad at me. I hope you spend many happy hours posting here!

Mmmm review was a little too snarky/backhanded but otherwise good. Haven't heard this yet but I'm looking forward to it when I do

Now that's a comeback. I would totally be down to see staff members review albums of bands that they're not really fans of. I love seeing an objective review like this, it's honest and does exactly what it sets out to do. A real fan of a band doesn't need a review for them to check out an album.

I had to buy the album again but I finally got my email this afternoon.

I definitely think a lot of the positive reaction is based off the ADTR vs Victory drama.
