Guitar tone in the outro is TASTY.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

The backing vocals / synths that kick in around the 3-minute mark are awesome. Mark's vocals also rule. Also interesting to have some singing over the solo.

This is my favorite of the three songs. There will be complaints about the sound again but overall I think the reaction here will be positive.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Love or hate their new songs, but this video is definitely going to bring a smile to your faces. As for the album related content, an interesting tidbit about the making of Wouldn't You Rather is there and Pay No Mind riff is played acoustically. To be honest, I couldn't figure out the second half ...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I don't love any of the songs so far but I don't exactly dislike any of them either.

Interesting outro on the latest one! ;)

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I think the band is doing even more of a disservice to themselves than us with the aforementioned sonic shortcomings of most of their albums. I think they could actually be bigger and stand out more all over the world with a cleaner, crisper sound. Discerning rock fans expect more than an un-dynamic...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Mark was at the final Slash / Conspirators show in Orlando tonight. I wonder if Myles goes home for a few weeks or if they start rehearsing and promoting right away!

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Saw the band five times between 2004 and 2007 but not since then. Bought a ticket last night.

It will be twelve years and two days in between AB shows for me. Or 4,385 days. Weird!!

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Myles has been making socially conscious music going back at least 25+ years. It's hilarious to see people doing backflips to convince themselves otherwise.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Anything can be about politics if you do enough mental gymnastics or go looking for it. Some people are just looking for a reason to kick up a fuss. Remember Ironic by Alanis Morissette? "A free ride when you're already late"? clearly about the welfare system and how it makes people lazy ...

it's okay to be in denial of what this song is clearly about, just don't be such delicate flowers

"Got away with murder" is about the (illegitimate) election results IMO.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

I don't mind seeing issues being talked about here. I do feel like belittling and the name-calling (in general, not necessarily here) over certain ideas does cross the line though. People have crazy ideas and opinions about anything (myself included). I feel like we as a supposed tight-knited commu...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

the backing vocals in the first part of the double chorus are rather operatic - i'm pretty sure those are all myles (but i can hear mark in the second part of the chorus) the griping about political interpretations is hilarious (they're just as valid as any other interpretation - in this case i'd ar...

Re: The Official SCOTT STAPP Thread

this album failed because it sucks the lyrics are repetitive, the music is beyond stale, and stapp continues to show no ability to reinvent (cool, another album about him battling his demons - no one cares anymore) but there's not anything as embarrassing here as "jesus was a rockstar" so ...

Re: The Official SCOTT STAPP Thread

We're living in a streaming world, and guess what, rock, hard rock and metal aren't popular with youngsters who use Spotify and Apple Music. This era is all about hip-hop, and some artists manage to get into the top ten while only selling a couple of hundred copies a week. Look at this article from...
