NSW, I suggest going back and reading earlier posts defending the group and continued listens of the album. A lot of people came around after giving it a few chances, Imperor up there included.

I won't abandon it after one listen.

It's true. Something about it might not immediately click those first handful of listens. Now it's a top-fiver on the year and I've come to enjoy previous albums Rise Above and The Getty Address. Figuring out the girls are cute may or may not have had something to do with it.

A few more listens just might make your Temecula sun rise, if you get my meaning.

I didn't think any of them were cute. But I am going to listen to the music anyway.

Imagine that.

Compare it to the Black Flag original and have your mind blown. I still love DP's cover of the title track, probably my favorite song of theirs.

Black Flag aren't really my thing, so maybe staying away from the source material is a wise decision.

It's awesome just to hear how different DP's covers are.

That said, I love punk and hardcore, don't really care for Black Flag.

Hey, if you like punk rock, you should check out How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb.

This is an honest question: why is it that I can listen to a band with a male vocalist and not automatically think about whether or not he's cute, but most (not all, but most) guys' thoughts about a female vocalist go straight to if she's good-looking. Probably something that has been pondered for many years before, but I'm still curious.

Do not lump me in on this, please. I truly don't give a shit about what a singer looks like.

I might be guilty of thinking an actress is better than another cos her looks somehow work their way into the equation, but with music I honestly could not care less.

I'm not, hence the most, plus you commented earlier about not thinking the girls are cute.
