Going to be working on some things this week to bring some potential stuff, in regards to the new album, to the site for everyone. Pitched an offer for an exclusive, interview, early review, band commentary -- anything, basically, that we can get to get some excitement stirring.
Believe me -- I'm going to be pushing for this. I will be sure to keep everyone up-to-date on any cool possibilities.
Yes, yes, yes. Cannot fucking WAIT for AS to drop...
It really is. It's easily my favorite song on the new record, although I do actually love it all, aside from We Did It When We Were Young.
Seriously, what's up with the hate for this song? Personally I like it a whole lot...I think it's a great closer for the album. Sure it's not "The Backseat," but "American Slang" is no "The 59 Sound." I think it works. I think everything on this record works except the first five seconds of "Boxer" and that boring-as-fuck slow drumbeat that pops up on the title track and some other places. And I've even kind of come to terms with that.
It's not that I hate the song, it just doesn't fully live up to my expectations in comparison to all of their other album closers. They usually end so strong, be it "Red At Night," "Blue Jeans," or "The Backseat." It's still a good song, it's just one that I don't love. And ya, I still don't know what I think about the beginning of "Boxer," but other than the beginning the rest of the song is great.
Alright. I gotcha. Personally, I still think it's a good closer. Sure they have better...but you can't have it all. I might like it better than "Red at Night" though, just because that song is so close to the one I have posted below, which I have known for much longer.
Oh, don't get me wrong."Boxer" is probably my favorite song on the album.
