Yo bro? You just hatin a band cause they go mainstream? Thats kinda messed up... IT doesnt matter if you go mainstream or if all "those little fake scene kids" like them, they still have some great music...
"I'm gonna need you to try to follow along.
I did the best that I could to try and write you songs.
Now go tell them we sold out, like we're the ones who changed.
I write what I feel, I say what I mean.
You can't buy sincerity" Thats for everone calling them 'sell outs' and saying they've 'gone mainstream...'
Corrections and Review | Reviewer: JC Rock
Yes, there has been a slight
line up change. Bobby Scruggs
is no longer the drummer. Alex
Shelnutt replaced him and Kevin
Skaff replaced Tom Denney so
Tom can focus on his family and
Home(sic) (that's how I ALWAYS
spell sick) was released In Feb
09. ADTR still retained the very
catchy hooks and heavy riffs, but
this album is different from FOR
THOSE WHO HAVE HEART. FTWHH contained
much more screaming and heavier
songs. Jeremy's clean vocals were
also very clean with hardly any
scratchy notes in them. The lyrics
were brutal and the breakdowns
were twisted. However, Home(sic)
showed a bit of a softer yet
heavier side to ADTR. Songs like
"Have Faith In Me", "NJ Legion
Ice Tea", and "If It Means Alot
To You" showed that bit of the
softer side, while songs like
"You Already Know What You Are",
"Welcome To the Famliy", and the
brutal "Mr. Highway Is Thinking
About the End" cultivated the
heaviness every true ADTR fan
seek. "I'm Made Of Wax Larry..."
has a great mix of singing and screaming
and "My Life For Hire" has a fantastic
breakdown that will have the entire
audience screaming at the top
of their lungs. By far the album's
cathiest song, "The Downfall
of Us All", creates the new feel
and sound for ADTR wonderfully
and songs like "Holdin' It Down..."
hold fast the amazing lyrics
any "Day 1" fan or "heard
them a few days ago" fan can
all realate to. Bottom line,
ADTR is an amzaing band and
cannot be missed. Start out
with FTWHH if you are a new fan.
Watch for songs like "Plot To
Bomb...", "Danger in Starting a Fire",
Show 'em the Ropes", and "Momument"
to sing or scream your heart out to.
"You won't make it out alive..."
