:facepalm You basically called them the same thing.

BUT SRSLY WE SHOULD STOP COMPARING THEM IN THIS THREAD.

If you think those two are the same things, it's not worth having this discussion anyway.

I never really paid too close attention to the lyrics in The Diary of Jane, but I was listening to Phobia last night, and that song just really clicked with me.

Rain has a great line in it that I always liked

"Is it you I want,
or just the notion of
a heart to wrap around
so I can find my way around?"

I was hoping for something a little different sounding. They sort of copied the riff from Diary of Jane, which was a copy of the riff from So Cold. I don't hate it, it's just been done before. Hopefully there is more variation (in the direction Dear Agony was taking) in the rest of the album.

It's kind of simple but I'm really digging the chorus lately. Kind of resonating with where I feel I am in life right now, maybe I haven't quite outgrown BB after all.

Honestly, I'm underwhelmed with that teaser. It's nothing special and it's again just reiterated lyrics/lyrical ideas.

The audio is way off. It's impossible to judge the snippet like this.

I dig it! Has a mix of early BB and Dear Agony, good stuff. There's another song floating around, i think I like that one best of the three.

I don't like whatever they did to Ben's voice in the chorus. The first chorus especially. It sounds awful.

I liked the verses, but overal I thought it wasn't that special.

It's just another typical BB song, but I like it, I missed hearing new songs from them.

If you're talking about "Defeated" then, yes. It's my favorite by far of the three.
