I really think they should've just released "king of amarillo" as a single then stayed in the studio a while longer working on their music before throwing together an album real quick to make the kids happy. This project should've been a lot better.
Alright just finished listening... First off, I wanna start off by saying that I don't even listen to this type of music anymore. I've been a fan of screamo on and off since I got into the (let's call it) "scene" 13 years ago... screamo hasn't been an interest of mine for quite a few years now. I checked out Issues initially because of all the drama surrounding them... I can completely understand all the people who are still into this kind of music saying stuff like it doesn't live up to the hype or that it's wasted talent (love, sex, riot does sound like a nu metal song)... but to a (at this point) outsider to the genre, I thoroughly enjoy this EP. It mixes different influences (good enough) that it actually keeps me entertained in a genre that I normally think is currently stale.
Your opinion is invalid since you refer to this type of music as screamo.
I know exactly what screamo was originally, and that this type of music has falsely took over the name due to ignorance... I was simply referring to it that way because that's how the kids on this site talk... shut the fuck up and don't critrque me on what lamens terms I decide on using
