Zac tweeted this:

"they didnt do it on purpose but they still made idiot mistakes with something very important to me and obviously not to them".

I don't believe art exists in a vacuum. And you can take plenty of things into account.

It's why Mel Gibson no longer has a career.
What about music that isn't art?

So you don't see any movies with Sean Penn? Sounds brutal.

I think narrowing your mind is wrong and I don't think that's narrow minded.
I've always let the music speak for itself. But, different people, different values. Nothing we can do about that!

Not that I would censure the guy (Zac) for his emotions, anyway.

Never listened to this band before, but checked out the first 3 songs off their "leaked" album. Snoozefest. Someone recommend 3 songs from their older albums, before I write this band off? Or not worth it?
World Favourite, Montrose, Dead End Dreams.

A very high percentage of the music we listen to and post about is, objectively, simple minded. Bands shouldn't take that kind of criticism as anything except true. Plenty of fantastic bands have written exceptionally simple songs. Um, and yeah, as humans with ears we have "the right" to say just about whatever we want ... bands have the right to create, there's no right that the creation is universally praised.

Some of my favorite songs ever made are "simple minded" ...

... I don't see that being all that negative of a phrase.
When you say simple-minded, what do you mean? The opposite of 'complicated'? If so, I get that, but the phrase 'simple-minded' just sounds pejorative. Like you mean mentally deficient :p.
