I'm really not sure about this CD...
I was really into the whole 'screamo' scene when I bought New Medicines... I just heard the title track and sprung the money for it. It's now one of my favorite CDs... But when I heard the new demos I couldn't believe my ears. They sounded awful and everyone (EVERYONE!) was complaining about their new sound. I heard Narcotic early this summer and hated them even more. Recently, In Coma's been growing on me. I will buy the CD, I enjoyed their last one enough to do that, but I think they should've tried for a good CD, not the whole "let's make the best CD ever!" (<-- which they did try to do, and apparently failed!) I mean, if you don't try you won't fail!
And what's the deal with them dropping off the Red Jumpsuit tour? Will I ever see them? (Not that I wanted to see Jumpsuit at all)
Yeah, I got into Dead Poetic at the "musical timeline" I was really digging screamo. I'm actually glad they redefined their sound, I am not so much into it anymore and the "genre" (using that term loosely) it greatly oversaturated. I also did hear the negative backlash about all the demos, I guess it was good that I never ended up hearing them.
They dropped off that tour because some members of the band wanted to spend time with their families, no one was leaving the band, as rumors stated.
