I used to love Saosin, but with their parting ways with Cove being so cold, and the comments certain members have made about him, have left a bad taste in my mouth.

This pretty sums up my feelings. The band should have kept Cove IMO. While ISOSG was a big let down- it did have some solid jams and I'm sure with the right producer the band could have made a comeback on the follow up.

Exactly, I get ripped everytime I say that too. ISOSG had some solid songs, it would have been better had they used the songs from the "heavy EP" they alwasy talked about. And also Cove, had he taken care of his voice better I think things would have unfolded differently. I personally saw Saosin 3 times, and Cove was spot on each time.

Yeah I saw them only once but he sounded good to me. The band just should have back pedaled a little when they were trying to make both experimental and commercial songs and keep what made their fans love them in the first place in the forefront. If that makes sense. I feel like ISOSG was a band that (ironically) were all over the place and definitely not on solid ground.

That album seemed doomed in many ways from the get go. From outside writers, to producer changes, to the label, to people expecting Saosin II, and the amount of time it took. Like many, I did in fact want a Saosin II....I still do.

Yeah i agree, it was definitely odds against them and it didnt end well. I also think their S/T was fantastic with really powerful songs (come close) that still hold up IMO and would love a Saosin II.
