It's been a long time since I've listened to them, but War All The Time changed me and I'll never cease to be awed at how eloquent Geoff can be.

solid piece. it's sad that it's the truth. once any form of art is given to the people, it's no longer the artists' intentions, but that of how the general public perceives it. It's going in with an idea and reshaping that idea through others interpretations.

Incredible read; Rickly has a way with words that is near unparalleled by the bands Thursday shares the stage with. No one will question his lyrical mastery, but seeing him write outside of a song refreshing and exciting.

So excited for this record to hit the public.

I've got so much respect for this man and it's relieving to know that his writing is just as well formed and as poignant as the music he makes. I love this band and what he's saying is really true but god damn, it really reminds me of my final year of english in high school.

This is a pretty fantastic read. It was also really insightful to read about how he viewed Full Collapse initially.

The thing about both these little blogs that Geoff's done for AP so far is that they're very conversational. I think that's one of the most difficult things to do and people get it wrong all the time when they write these types of things. They reach too far or try too hard, when all they really needed to do is write how they'd speak. It's a good tip to all those who like to write out there when you read stuff like Geoff's blog is that while he's obviously well-spoken and educated, he keeps his language colloquial or on the level so it's not too hard to relate to what he's writing about.
