Yes I am posting this at risk of getting the emo jokes shot at me, but these guys are a fantastic band. The lyrics are to me the most impressive in modern music and they have this vibe about them, the whole "emo but dont rely on someone in the band being attractive" thing. But I digress anyone have any thoughts?

I like them. I can't say I agree with your thoughts on them, but they're pretty good.

I like them too. Their newer albums should not be considered emo.

i think their old material is crap but the new album is much different and actually pretty good. very nine inch nails influenced.

-is your username really fergiepunk?

-when do emo bands ever have anyone attractive in the band?

-I checked out The Quiet Things That No one Ever Knows on youtube. It was alright. Got any song recommendations? Especially ragdoll?

Guernica and Sic Transit Gloria...Glory Fades are shockingly good. Like, the kind of songs you get obsessed with for periods of time.

You don't look like no Ragdoll to me. :(

But I'll check 'em out.

I'm not ragdoll either.

but check out the song Jesus. It's off of their newest album, which is less emoish and pop-punkish.

The Jesus song... is okay, but kinda boring.

The Jude Law song is more fun. I liked it, but it's kinda generic.

Guernica is really good.

Sic Transit is also quite good,and is probably my favorite of the four. Definitely possibly addictive. :)

I think based on the second two songs, I'd look into getting an album.

Then get the Deja Entendu album. It has those two and all the other songs sound similar to them.

I strongly enjoyed Deja Entendu, and was eagerly anticipating their new album.

Then I listened to it, it disappointed the absolutely hell out of me, and so I'm sticking with Deja Entendu.

I really liked Seventeen times 7 at one point. Not really the entire song, but the little lyrical part halfway through about.

"so is that what you call a getaway? Tell me what you got away with"

Stuff is good. Or at least catchy.

I saw this band live when they supported Incubus in 2004 and they were quite good. By that time I had only really heard Sic Transit Gloria... and The Quiet Things That No One Knows (I think that's what it's called). I brought the new album on an impulse and it's really good, I particularly like the songs Jesus, Sowing Season and Not The Sun.

From what I have heard they are alright.

I will give my honest opinion after I see them at Give it a Name.
