That would be sweet. Jesse Lacey and other Jersey people would be crazy to see.
Yeah, young Brand New and Taking Back Sunday were the inspiration for that idea.

Wasn't it like this in the beginning? Movielife, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Breaking Pangea, The Rookie Lot .... all just musicians trying to find a band.
Touche. Except in those cases, certain musicians stopped playing and new musicians stepped in.

Adrian, any word on who is reviewing the new As Cities Burn album??? I think it and Machester's new one are leading the way for Album of the Year.

If you have read Atlas Shrugged you should know the directive 10-289 doesn't work ..... there has to be room for departures and arrivals. That is why their music scene still kind of wins.

Damn, I thought absolutepunk.net was shutting down. If only, if only.. If the music becomes compromised than yeah you gotta fucking quit. NFG hasn't put out a good album since Sticks and Stones which was what, 2003? Time to quit. Pink Floyd took a turn for the worst as well when Roger Waters left, and they then put out two shit albums. You just have to know when to stop. I would rather have a band quit and go out with dignity then try and create a somewhat decent album but fail miserably only to humiliate themselves and forever be slandered as a fiasco.
most of this website, myself included, would disagree with you about NFG. i can see you saying that after Coming Home, but not after Not Without A Fight, i think it's some of their best material to date. they're still (or again) at the top of their game.

Yeah, I don't think it's the best idea, just something to mentally kick around.

Paper Rival is a band I was so upset to see disband. They were going places. Their album completely blew me away.

Bands that I usually think should break up, are bands that don't appeal to me. It's pretty selfish really. I also think those bands shouldn't break up on account they most likely appeal to someone else. This is a really tough topic.

Thanks for posting this. I had never heard Refused before, but decided to read up and listened to the first minute of "New Noise" on YouTube and then immediately proceeded to download the album. I'm listening to it right now and am enjoying it.

Personally, The Refused "TSOPTC" is still my favorite album of all time. And as much as I would love to see them reunite, You cant top how they went out. The open letter and having the final show get broken up by the cops is something you just dont fuck with. So as much as I would kill to see them live, can they out do what they have already done?

I would however love to see a few other bands reunite...The movielife, Jawbreaker, cro-mags, american nightmare, ben folds five, Verse (yes, even if they just broke up), lifetime (again), jets to brazil, promise ring, Misfits with Danzig to name a few.

I can usually respect bands reasons for breaking up. And most of the time, I have a feeling that only the band members themselves know the true reasons for parting ways. If you cant get along, then being in a band wont work (unless you are Oasis). If youre broke, you wont be able to afford equipment, and so on.

Bands should break up after that dynamic is gone. I'm not talking the usual "ohemgee FOB will never top TTTYG". I mean more Good Charlotte going from "little things" to a depeche mode cover band or Metallicas "St Anger". It doesnt matter how long they have been around, it just matters that they loose that spark.

Ive said it before, and i'll say it again. The refused had the perfect breakup. "the refused are fuckin' dead" should be a literary reference for most bands on how to break up. And getting broken up by the cops can't hurt.

Same here, in regards to TGUK. It's horrible how kids nowadays don't care about the cultural history of their own scene.
Nice avatar. And there are wayyyyy too many kids in even the Lawrence/Kansas City area who have no idea who TGUK are.

The album is fucking epic. Listen to it from start to finish...it makes more sense (for lack of a better term)

To be totally honest, the day NFG calls it quits I will cry like a fucking baby.

Same goes for Punchline.

Refused is one of my favorite bands, but I didn't even know who they were when the existed. [I was 7 when they broke up.] I would love to have experienced them when they were together, but if they got back together I feel it would contradict everything they were and are.

It seems wise for a band to hang it up once they think they've reached a creative pinnacle, but that, to me at least, is a different issue from making a bad album.
