Where the crap have you been? This is the first post I've seen from you in quite some time!

I know what you mean though, I got kind of a weird taste in my mouth from Jimmy Eat World hitting it big. I'd liked them for a while before they really broke out last year. That was odd. We'll see what happens with AFI, I hope I dont feel the same way.

AFI - Sing the Sorrow is being streamed on www.mtv.com . Go listen for free while it's still up!!

Go check it out, it's not really the type of music your typical U2 fan will like, so I wont be that offended if you dont like it. I think some of you may be suprised and get into it though. One of my favorite bands, that's for sure.

Songs I recommend:
*This Celluloid Dream
*The Leaving Song
*Silver and Cold
*Girls Not Grey
Dancing Through Sunday
Bleed Black
Miseria Cantare
(the others are great too, but these are some of my favs, you really cant miss with any of them)

*= songs I think U2 fans might like

PS - the album has gotten the equivalent of 4 stars from Rollingstone, Q Magazine, Kerrang, and a B+ from Spin. Great reviews all across the board so far!

Like I said, you can go listen to it on www.mtv.com for free!

You just want me to send you a copy so you can get my return address and send me love letters.

That's the best kind of love. Delicious love.

That sucks you cant listen to it, cause I know you'd be cool enough to actually check it out.

Because you didnt say you didnt like them. You said they sucked and then equated them to freaking Offspring.

It's how you go about things....

ok, so I MAY have gone off the rails slightly. But, I'm sorry. All is forgiven?

Of course it is. Plus, you seem to like a lot of groups that I also like!! I'm down with that.




IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Everbody, dont listen to the songs on www.mtv.com
for a day or so, they're labeled all wrong. Hopefully they'll fix it soon, I imagine AFI fans will complain in a major way. They've put a bunch of the songs on there twice and left out the actual songs.

Cool. I made a plea for your forgivness in my journal. I know, I know, it's hokey. But I said the same thing about us liking a lot of the same bands.

I just read it, thanks. Dont worry, all is forgiven. So what are your favorite bands?

Mine are (at the moment at least):

U2
Radiohead
The Cure
The Smiths
Idlewild
AFI
Weezer
The Clash
Led Zeppelin
Rage Against the Machine
The Beatles
REM

And lots others, these are just the ones I can feel confident saying they're my "favorites"

I listened to a few of my AFI albums today, and some of the b-sides while reading the lyrics to the songs. I was just really impressed by the lyrics. Pretty cool stuff for a punk band, not your run of the mill stuff.

It's always funny how sometimes you have no clue what is really being said until you read the lyrics.
