I liked how he went in depth with the Island Records situation. Cone has to be my favorite in the band.

I wasn't even going to buy this album at first, but over the past couple weeks I've become incredibly stoked

I like it alot, there are some bad tracks that are totally out of place (time for you to go and baby you don't want to know) but I like the new record alot.


Oh and fuck Island records. In some aspects i can understand why Island got fed up, the band has been recording for a while and that shit is expensive. At the end of it all, It's just one of millions of stories of how bad majors can be to their cash cows.

doesn't sound like they were that bad at all...they just wanted to see the album come out. at least the band has a label behind them who is anxious to put their releases out, i am sure many bands would be glad to have that

Well they were anxious probably due to the warped tour being a success for them and money. If the label paid for the house they rented put to record for a long time then I can understand 100% why the label were like "the album is done, we are not paying anymore money". Majors care more about $$ than art itself.

Same old stuff in these recent interviews, but it's good to see how much promotion/press is going towards SBM. One more day!

I actually really enjoyed the record. I agree with some people, there are a couple out of place tracks, but there are some great moments on the record. I would love to know the two tracks that they paid for because they wanted them on the record that bad!

Damn good album. Definitely a return to form after the disastrous last album.

Screaming Bloody Murder is at least a step in the right direction. Underclass Hero was terrible, but Sum 41 have always been consistently enjoyable at least, with the exception of Underclass.
