Where did you go with this topic? I never said they should rush to make music. I'm using facts that we ALL know - Zack pointed out some of them via interviews they've done - and saying that based on what we all know as fans, this recording process seems entirely different and the polar opposite to the approach taken on the LP. From taking that much time for an LP to taking only a week or so for an EP isn't similar in any way. Them being in the same room for the entire process is also the opposite of before. You can say "Hey man are you their producer? How would you know?" but hey none of us are their producer. I'm just making an argument based on publicly available information and to disprove that by saying "are you in the studio with them" is just one step away from "you can't review music if you don't play music." We are allowed to make our own inferences when weighing opinions on a message board...no matter how popular the band in question may or may not be.
Your first paragraph was all about timing.
No, you're drawing assumptions from barely related facts. You're taking things you know and extrapolating them to be evidence of the whole. That's assumption, not fact. Your analogy is not even close to true. What I am saying is that I DON'T KNOW either, I'm agnostic -- I'm not the one making claims without any real
evidence. Big difference.
Sure, you're allowed to just make guesses
all you want ... I mean, more power to you, you should just be aware that's all you're doing: guessing.
