This is one of the dumbest comments I've ever seen.
Just because Fred is in the band doesn't mean "oh let's compare it to TBS all day long!" If that's the case, then almost nobody on this site would like this band because so many users love TBS. There are people from other bands in here too, besides Fred, like the drummer on was on Coheed & Cambria's first three albums. He did a phenomonal job there, but he's not flexing his skills here because it's a different work environment and it's their first album. They're more focused on getting their name out there which is a lot harder to do now than it was back in the '90s and early '00s. I expect great things from their next album considering they'll be more used to playing with each other and can start experimenting a little outside of a concept (I'm sure the drummer could have done great, but he would take away from Fred's concept vision for the album).
It's essentially the same reason for why the video sucks. Who cares? It was cheap and easy to make, so they're taking advantage of it to try and see if it will get any recognition on websites like these, which it already has. Is the goal of a music video not to draw in new fans? It's not like it needs to look fantastic. It just needs to gain attention. I think adding a header like "they made this with their iPhone" should attract some form of attention. If people can make a music video, let them. I don't understand why somebody would say "bands feel like they can just make videos themselves and it ends up looking amateur" (I spliced it a bit) when it shouldn't matter. Who are we to stop them? If it's cheap and easy to do, they should do it. For a band just starting out, they aren't making much money. They should invest whatever money they have into making music rather than into making a music video look good.
