Me too! Wait for the forum re-design

Jared Ward made those, and we adore them


Yeah the artwork is great!

Still no ETA on that redesign though?

It's in progress. Was up till about 2am working on it last night.

Oh okay. Thanks Ryan! I'm just really anticipating it because this would be the first redesign on the forums since I joined.

Love the review of The Other Side. This is the one form the LP that reminded me of Metallica's Sad But True - angry, methodical, inexorable. I couldn't really pull out many lyrics then and I certainly can't remember them now, but the topic sounds very apropos of the music. The Other Side does rhyme with something denied, so there's that opportunity, and Ryan's sig hints at some lyrics there, too. Can't wait for the release!

Argh. Of course that's your sig! I scrolled up one and saw Ryan's quotes and just went with that. And I usually know whose sigs are whose. I'm dumb.

But how?!?!?!

Yup, I'm living on past glories. But if Jim and the gang resurrect the TABN Awards though, I'll be just another AB23 :shifty.

I was wondering how you had The Other Side lyrics in your sig already. Was it one of the leaks I missed?

I've had this sig since the Listening Party review Ashlee did back in July. It has those lyrics because those were the lyrics she had shared with us for that song.

Okay we might unveil all of the admins' individual song ratings at the end of the track-by-track reviews.

So for those that do like "My Champion" does that mean they have poor taste then? Is that what you are implying?

Taste is always personal, also mine. No problem if you like the song. Please allow me my opinion. I happen to think this is their worst song ever. Every band has a worst song, which one it is can be subject to discussion.

I'll let you to have your opinion, but I will also exercise my opinion that My Champion is not their worst song. While I am at it, I'll go ahead and state that I think "Shed My Skin," a huge favorite around these parts, is AB's worst song. Man, that feels good to get it out there.

I won't say worst, but my least favorite song they have ever done is Never Born To Follow. And I still like the song, just does it for me the least.
