The score was unreasonably low, and that's why it didn't get approved the first time. I couldn't bring myself to raise the other scores because they have actual weight in a description of how the album sounds. Lasting Value is a crap shoot anyway, so that's the one I raised.
EDIT: I also lowered it.

I really don't know, I'm going to keep lowering it until I'm okay with it haha.

So am I, haha, but I think any lower gets a little unreasonable.
EDIT: I went there anyway.

my friends uncle signed them. i guess he is one of the top guys at the record company. i told my friend to ask him why they did that. i will get back to you asap
You should also find out why it's spelled Noize, that's ridiculous. I definitely want to hear the reasoning though. Also, have him show him the review, it'll be good ol' fun.

ok. will do
i didnt even know what surbaben noize or whatever tis spelled was.
my friend gave me his sweater and its on the back. i wore it to a show, so glad noone bagged on me about it haha
I'm pretty sure nobody at a credible show would ever care about this "label" anyway haha.

thank the lord. lo
land i wore it to school too :(
yo but Unwritten Laws on it. and Authority Zero thats about it tho. not a fan of Kottonmouth Kings lol
I hate when labels have a combination of credible and ridiculously uncredible bands on their label. Like Epitaph. They have some of the best shit, but they also have some of the most terrible bands. I don't understand how labels can hear some of the stuff and go "Lets pay you money to make more of this".

Awww, I actually like Hollywood Undead (complete guilty pleasure, please don't hurt me...), so the RIYL was a very minor letdown. Overall, great review.
My best friend loves these guys. We get into arguements all the time; I bash his stupid scene/hip hop bands (he loves Brokencyde and I Set My Friends On Fire, to name a few), and he complains about my "emo" bands (Motion City Soundtrack, Mayday Parade, NFG). What a friendship haha.
Haha, Hollywood Undead are pretty bad, but to each their own. Since when were NFG emo? I can understand MCS and MP, but NFG don't really make any sense.

That's what I keep telling him. He thinks anything not death metal is emo, songs about women (which is apparently gay? Haha) and no breakdowns. Oh well.
...why am I complaining about my best friend? Oh, it's 1:30 am, thats why haha.
Haha, your'e not complaining about personality, just the fact that he has no idea what he's taking about with music.

i dont know about the rest of you but I really think brokencyde is on to something. They combine crazy brutal screams with the best of the hip hop genre. It is honesly groundbreaking....and they seem to be doing something with it so good for them.....
holy shit....totally kidding....i couldnt even hardly type that....they should burn....just sayin
You had me their for a second. Phew.

Thanks for the info. I can't respect a label that signs bands like this, unless it's a major label, then they are doing what they alwys do, capatilzing on shitty trends.

How the hell idid the member rating get so high? Fuck...

Indie labels do that too though. For example; Epitaph signing I Set My Friends On Fire, I Am Ghost, Victory signing.. Well... a lot of bands on their roster. And every band ever on Hopeless.
I don't have much respect for those labels, sans a few bands that save their ass. Also, I actually enjoy There For Tomorrow, who are on hopeless.
