Like Digitize said, replacing Matt would be a horrible idea.

See, I can dig this.

No "Hahaha" or "I'm gonna make fun of a band you like cause you don't like a band I like."

Sure it is. You're reaching.

I think replacing Matt would be a great idea. He's a poor singer in a serviceable band. Get rid of the weak link. He can still write the lyrics. Plenty of good bands have singers who don't write the lyrics.

I'd wait for subnet to respond, but I'm not sure why he/anyone would return to this thread.

Yeah. He might post something you disagree with, then you'll have to rag on him for liking something you don't enjoy.

Cause we're all 5 year old children.

I will admit that I have to get past Matt's voice to get into The National. But I do enjoy them. Not anywhere near my top bands list but I still enjoy them.

With that said, I don't think it's crazy for someone not to like them because of his voice. It was very difficult for me to listen to at first.

If I did, I think subnet would be just fine. Not all of us are as gifted at pursuing unnecessary arguments as yourself.

I like that you edited this into your post, as if this jab could have taken a person more than an instant to come up with. Seems like the sort of thing an adult would edit out anyway.

You see this as a one way street?

This is you, in proper 5 Y.O. terms.

Me: I don't like Oreos.

You: You like Nutter Butters. They suck and nobody cares what you think. Everyone like Oreos.

I don't post snarky photos with the assumption that I will shortly be derailing the thread with an inane page-long argument built entirely on subjectivity, no.

But once people start asking me questions, it is rude to ignore them.

Matt has a good grasp on lyrics and song structure, and vocal restrain. He doesn't sing through guitar riffs or through a song's bridge. Our favourite B man has been known to do that recently to the detriment of the song IMHO. Matt is like the Bono of 1987 with a deeper baritone.

It's funny how offended you guys get that someone doesn't agree with your opinions.

Hell yeah I love The Darkness. They're better than The National in every way.

I'll gladly wait for your freak out at that opinion.
I can't believe the shitty thoughts you think.

Well, that's not true. What did this add to anything, other than being a snide remark? Please point to the snarky photo I've posted in this thread.

On another band, I was kinda like, "meh" to the sound of Joe Newman's singing. But I got over it and love Alt-J nonetheless.

And thanks for mention, makes me feel wanted.

That's exactly what it was, and what it was intended to be. A snide remark. Self-contained. It was a statement, asking no questions. No further discussion necessary. Snark does beg further comment, I realize, but I really didn't want to turn this into a discussion about The National, as that's what The National's thread is for.

As an aside, it makes me sad how often we disagree, as 95% of the songs you post, I actually really enjoy/have enjoyed for quite some time.
