Awesome album, deserves a much bigger score, atleast 85%
I love there 2 previous albums but this one is def there best
People will agree with you no matter what though, thats the problem with this website, wayyyyyyy to many fanboys/girls who take anything what a red name says for gospel when really they are no different from anyone else on this website and shouldnt influence you what "good" music is at all. Even if Jason Tate thinks his opinion is greater then everyone elses (proof i have visited this site for quite some time).
That being said I have no problem with any red names really and think they are all pretty great people, its mainly Jason that pisses me off with his huge ego and how he has this sense of being greater then everyone else, even towards some bands that have helped out this site before: also have a problem towards people who seem to come on this site to only jump onto the next bandwagon or for some reason feel they need someone elses opinion on if this band is good or not.
Back on topic: Great Album, Keep up the awesome work Audition, cant wait for your next album
Unnecesary Jason rant. Also, if you'll notice, there have been a few people who thought it deserved higher. It's on review. Take it for what it is. It's a well-written review that backs up every point made. Don't go off on a rant just because you don't agree. It's not like he gave it an awful score. It's a pretty fair and relatively high score.
my point is there are people in here who have already made their mind up about it without even listening to it just because of this review which leads me to believe that most of the people that hated champion probably havent listened to it either and are just taking a red names word for 100% truth
its a shame coz the audition are one of the best at what they do at the moment and they really deserve more fame
A lot of people have already heard the album, myself included. That's probably the MAIN reason they're saying opinions that line up with the review. It's been streaming for a bit now, and leaked like a week ago or something.
Just because you think they're the best at what they do doesn't mean people have to like it. It's not an amazing album, although I did enjoy it. If someone didn't like Champion, I can't say for sure that this different enough for them to enjoy. Maybe, but maybe not.
Maybe you just shouldn't assume that everyone worships every single staff member on the site...
seeing you still dont get it, I will go into more detail
people on this site take everything red name say for gospel
Now this is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And Id like to take a minute just sit right there
Ill tell you how I became the prince of a town called bel-air
In west philadelfia born and raised
On the playground where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys said were up in no good
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said youre moving with your aunte and uncle in bel-air
I begged and pleaded with her the other day
But she packed suitcase my and sent me on my way
She gave me a kissin and she gave me my ticket
I put my walkman on and said I might aswell kick it
First class, yo this is bad,
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass
Is this what the people of bel-air livin like,
Hmm this might be alright!
I whistled for a cab and when it came near the
Licensplate said fresh and had a dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought now forget it, yo home to bel-air
I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby yo, home smell you later
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To settle my throne as the prince of bel-air
first of all, whoever "reviewed" this album, should be fired-no doubt. i'm completely baffled at the fact that you (ONE INDIVIDUAL) are really going to sit here and say The Audition's new album is unimaginative and unorganized! This is The Audition's most well-written, and put together c.d. to date. It includes a broad spectrum of different sounds, which gives EACH individual a chance to connect with at least one, or more songs. It was a genius idea for Danny and the band to actually make an album that can not only attract to their current listeners, but also to the listens that have just blown them off before. Each track is unique in its own way, lyrically AND musically. It really disheartens me, a fan of not only the audition, but the rock-alternative genre in general. I've seen this band perform live numerous times, and I have never seen a singer love what they do, more than Danny Stevens does. A singer that truly CARES for his fans, and strives to give them what they want, and expect. This band is part of the Victory Records label, which is probably the worst label there is. They have to work twice as hard to prove themselves to their following, because Victory doesn't do diddly-squat for them. They have done nothing but take advantage of this hard-working, multi-talented band. Danny Stevens is MUCH too good of a singer/songwriter to be belittled the way you have in this review.
Like I said, whoever wrote this article is on drugs.
You must have been listening to some other shit,
because "Self-Titled Album" would have BLOWN your face off.
