The departure of both of them ruined the bands dynamic in my opinion. Derek is an extremely good drummer, and is far more talented at that than his bullshit rap. And Kevin traded in his good guitar work and awesome clean vocals to play breakdowns. Such a waste, I still jam their second album here and there.
You do realize the one ADTR album Kevin has been featured on features a grand total of two songs with breakdowns, right? And that he actually sings some clean vocals on that same record? Okay, just checking.

Evidently you do, hence your (misinformed) post.

I love ADTR and I love FLL but there are distinct breakdowns on 2nd sucks, It's Complicated, Sticks & Bricks and You Be Tails. Not as many as Homesick or previous material but they are definitely there. And for the record I think ADTR does breakdowns better than most other bands.
You can hardly call the bridges in It's Complicated or You Be Tails "breakdowns," man haha. At least not even close to the traditional sense in metalcore, or what he's referring to I'm sure.

I definitely understand what you're saying, the It's Complicated one is more easycore and the You Be Tails one isn't the usual chugging, but there's still a pit call and an "Oh" before them. I dunno, guess it depends on how you define breakdown, but I agree in that they aren't genericore breakdowns haha.

Wow... this comment was pretty ridiculous, typing out a whole paragraph about breakdowns hahaha I'm such a tool
Hahaha, I'm right there with you.
