I prefer my intimidation factor. Grab a few ketchup packets, and squeeze as hard as I possibly can. Usually it takes a little while, but man... the looks on people's face. They know not to mess with this.

Anyone seeing them on Monday at the HOB in Orlando? I'm so excited to see them again, plus I never thought I'd get to see Rival Schools live, so that's sweet. Throw in Fake Problems? That's a good night.

Boxer was my immediate favorite track, but it's much simpler than the rest of the album, so it's slowly lost favor in my mind as other tracks have bonded with me.

I jumped on the bandwagon a bit late with Gaslight, so Senor & The Queen is my Sink or Swim in terms of that 'in my heart forever' nostalgia, ha ha.

But...but, it says right there in the title - property of Zack.

'Boxer' intro is annoying? Sink Or Swim is the best album? And doesn't need a remaster?

I've never seen anyone saying this. Most of the people I know would consider American Slang as their "worst" record.

I love Brian's voice at the end of Mulholland Drive.

It's the guitar at the end, for me.

This. Brian's shift in vocals and the guitar bring that song together.

Right. But his lyrics demonstrate that fact just fine. He doesn't need to waste a song talking about that.

Who invited the whiner?

Handwritten doesn't seem to have withstood the test of time for me. The only songs I have any desire to revisit with regularity are 45 and Biloxi.

I felt that same way about American Slang, but it grew on me after a while...like a year later.

Come to think of it, I felt that way about 59 Sound too. But part of it had to do with the rawness of the album that I didn't get into immediately. Handwritten feels like it played all its cards from the outset and has now run out of fuel.

This is exactly how I felt about American Slang, but something about the songwriting drew me back to it. Handwritten reminds me of AS, and I've got that kind of feeling with it, but I feel like it'll be an album I come back to later.

Gaslight, for me, is a band that's most enjoyable in a live setting...so an album that doesn't 'stick' doesn't bother me. I know the songs I don't enjoy much will rock when I see them live.

Huh, that's interesting. I always thought of them as more of an album band since they seem just OK live. Granted, I've only seen them once, and they were good, but their live show didn't add much to the songs that the recordings don't already have.



You must have got an unlucky show - seen them three times, been awesome every time.
