Wicked song that.

Top band with a top sound.

I love the contrast between the old thread and the new one.

eh...i would have said the same thing had i been around for the old one. i've got both i-empire and we don't need to whisper. i like "valkryie missle" and "everything's magic", but apparently i've only heard one song from each album.

I just don't get Angels & Airwaves or Tom Delonge, for that matter.

I really liked The Adventure. It had such a COBL-like feel to it. But that's where it stops for me.

Everyone likes to hate on them. I applaud Tom Delonge for changing musical direction. It's always good to incorporate such F/X like delay, chorus, reverb, and modulation into your sound. I wish more getting-to-be-repetative mainstream bands would experiment like this.

As far as employing a "U2-ish" sound goes, people don't give Coldplay or The Fray much of a hard time as they do with AVA. Why is that?

You can't just get out of Blink-182, suddenly decide you have credibility and adopt a pompous, overdone sound. They sound like a band that has no idea how to use their sound, and consequently it really has no soul.
blink 182 actually did some good stuff.

in fact, i'd say their self titled (and last album recorded together) was far more interesting than any coldplay or killers offerings.

I saw them when they opened for Weezer back in September. I remember thinking the first couple of songs were ok, but overall they were kind of whiny and over the top. I also recall that my now ex wasn't a fan, so I had to hear whining at both ends during their set.
