    Default Is it me....

    or are the offspring playing slower?

    For example, their song All I Want is at tempo in this vid but a lot slower in recent years

    I've noticed the same thing in other songs.

    Am I the only who notices it? Am I going crazy? Are they getting old?



    Anyone?

    you're right, atom slowed them a lot more, and thy seem even slower because they play in 4th and not 8th notes on the charleston. I think All I want is the song most influenced by it, still cool thought

    Because I'm already sick and the color scheme must have set me off. Sorry about that.

    you're wrong,the tempo is normal...the same as it is on the album....if you can't recognize it,just play the original video and catch the rhythm by hitting your foot on the floor or I don't know...I did it,then I played your live video from the concert and it was totally same,so maybe it only looks like they've slowed down....

    It's hard to tell. In the first video, it looked like they started too fast and slowed down after a while, while they seemed to start too slow in the second and sped up a bit. Either way, it would be because of Dexter or the drummer starting off at a particular tempo. If they start playing in drop B, that's when you start worrying about age.

    I'm not an expert, so I don't say anything about the tempo, but this version is great!

    Here you are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxdhYlxjKHU

    ps An important detail for me in All i want is the way dexter says "ok"; here it's good but I loved the strong one of the splinter era, like here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt5R_Z0HUpY

    what you say is correct, they play it slower.
    i guess than they played more slow to not require dexter when they play once every 2 days.

    or because he can not bear the entire song, for that reason never plays trust in you!

    Considering that both videos are just shy of 2 minutes, and both start immediately, it's clear that neither is faster or slower. I tapped my hand to both versions and it's the same speed. I honestly think that Dexter seems to be lagging in the second one. Maybe he was tired or something... link some more examples?
