    1. who?

      Knowing nothing of their sound, their albums look like Abercrombie ads. -_-

    2. I know a lot of people hate them a lot, but I have to admit, they’re awesome. She’s amazingly hot. You can’t really see in this picture.
      Cassie is probably my favourite song, but the entire album is dope.

      Also, inb4 anyone complaining that they’re a Christian band.

    14. Artistic tastes have nothing to do with “elitism” and everything to do with personal opinion. It is of my opinion that this particular band sucks. It says nothing of Xian rock or emo grunge chick singers. All it says is that thsi particular one band failed to please my ears personally.

      You should never defend your tastes. Just enjoy them and damn the rest.

    15. Never heard of them.

      Smacks of manufactured band and rehearsed angst.

      I likes my disenchanted singers drug addicted and genuine. This chick looks like she went to music school and majored in rebelling against “society”.

      Upon reading their wiki I can say they are definitely manufactured. That bio is so fake it reads like a 15 year old cutter’s wet dream.

      I especially liked her ‘don’t fuck with me ‘tude’ when she talked about her Christianity (please stop referring to it as faith. Faith can pertain to any religion. It’s Christian faith. Thanks.). She posits the brain masher: if a plumber is Christian does that make him a Christian plumber? in response to their band being labeled Christian. Well honeypie if the fat fuck sticks a cross and a picture of Jesus on every shitter he fixes then yes he is. This band obviously draws from and references their Christianity so they are a Christian band. And they suck black cock.

      Stating your opinion is when you say for example, I don’t like this band. I think they’re bad.

      Elitism is when you go, Oh my god, they’re so bad, look at me and my exaggerated emotions about a band I heard just a few moments ago.

      I wasn’t defending them, I just pointed out how fucking cliched everyone is. Defining themselves by what they don’t like. Yeah right.

    22. I know half these guys since we’re both from the Austin/Temple area of Texas. I jammed with Pat, the bassist, who was really cool and not bad. The guitarists, Jared and Sameer, are average at best and have HUGE ego issues. James, their drummer, flat out sucks. It takes little talent on the drums to do what he does. Lastly, Lacey is an arrogant bitch who wants it her way or the highway.

      I saw them 4 times in Texas, mainly in Austin such as Red 7, Emo’s, or Stubb’s, and all were opening for better, lesser recognized, more talented local bands.

      Then I will assume you were not refering to me. Seeing as how I first stated I had never heard of them, then after a youtube search and a few songs later, I decided for myself that I did not care for them.

      “Elitists” have no place in art. I wasn’t contending their existance, just the pointlessness of them being there in the first place. But you getting defensive sort of grouped you with them on my read-through. I see elitist listeners as those who defend their tastes with the idea that anyone who disagrees is somehow “beneath” them or simply “missing the point” when, in reality, we all just have different tastes.

      I’m a snob about certain hings, I know I am. But I’m never gonna snob it up over something as subjective as music. Hell, FlyLeaf could make an album I like in the future and I’ll gladly and openly admit that I enjoy it.

      To be perfectly honest, I like the new Metallica album, and I still hate half the band as human beings.

    26. @CathyLong:
      I was. Kind of. You used a strong word – hate.

      Yeah I guess that’s what elitists are to me also, but I meant the elitist attitude in general. Some people seriously believe that by not liking something, it means they have good taste. That’s completely ridiculous. So many people literally define themselves by what they don’t like. It blows my mind how anyone could think that that has any meaning whatsoever.

      And when it comes to things like metal, and Christian bands, I’d rather jam a pencil in my eye than discuss it with anyone who thinks like that.

      I like their new album too, but I don’t hate them. I’m kinda really loyal. Once I like a band, I’ll like them forever. Or at least the albums that made me like them.

    27. It’s a sound I haven’t hear 10 000 times before. For that I’ll tolerate the vocals. If any of you know of a band that’s the same, but better (there has to be), let me know.

      However you define taste, most people don’t have it. No matter who you are or what you like, chances are, most people think you have bad taste in (insert subject here).

      That’s not elitism. That’s like saying people who don’t want to eat McDonald’s, for whatever reason, are elitist. It has nothing to do with being better than other people, and everything to do with your taste.

      Music is probably the most subjective of artistic experiences.

      Personally, I like my music to not be overproduced crap created to turn a profit like McDonald’s. Maybe it’s because I’m a musician. After all, a chef would rather eat a fine dish well made than a microwave dinner.

      C’mon, you sound a little… butthurt when misuse the term elitism like that. If you like a certain type of music, defend it on its grounds; Don’t make it a proletariat versus bourgeois thing. It makes you sound pretentious, even if that’s the opposite effect of what you are going for.

      And I really only meant Cathy who immediately said she “hated” the band.

      That, again, is not elitism. When someone has a certain taste, it is in their right to espouse their opinion and what is what is not palatable to them. I don’t like french fries. Weird, I know. If someone asks my why I don’t like them, I’m allowed to explain just what it is I don’t like about them. I’m not trying to be ‘cool/elitist/whatever,’ I’m expressing a genuine opinion on the matter.
      ~
      This band reeks of pre-packaged commercialism. Like a Twinkie. It’s almost completely artificial, and built upon already pre-ordained popular tastes. I happen to not like that. Saying that I (or others) are not allowed to voice dissent on the matter is censorship.

    38. Eh I checked out the clip, as well as a few others (many bands have bad clips once in a while) but I can’t get out of my head that it seems like they’re trying too hard (especially the lead singer) to be hard, or to represent the “misunderstood” angsty teen group…

      It’s one thing to have a new sound and new methods and to call yourself original, but I’ve heard this style of music, same type of lyrics before… When the guys purposely cake on eyeliner that thick, it tends to be a good indication that the band is more than equal parts image to sound, which takes away a lot of their credibility to me.

      The female lead singer’s vocals seem too cliche- like she thinks the moaning and slurring of vocals is so bad it’s good, but the only singer who can really pull that off is Bjork. And I’m sure everyone on this board can agree that Bjork is certainly unique, whether you like her or not… (But I love her!)

      tl;dr I don’t like it.

      I’m afraid you don’t get it.

      I said “exaggerated emotions” – I hinted on how she said that she hated the band. I highly doubted she felt such strong emotions over disliking a band she knew almost nothing about. That’s a pretty lame attitude, and that’s what I meant. Not her not liking the band, but exaggerating like that.

      Also, your perspective on ad hominem attacks are outdated. For a long time, ad hominem attacks were considered fallacious, though recent authors and the like have stated that it’s often appropriate to draw attention to some feature of a person’s character. Like Christopher Tindale has done in “Fallacies and Argument Appraisal.”

    49. @dieAntagonista: Björk does rule. Top 10 concerts I’ve seen.

      I do get it. Again, using food, if I taste something that I don’t enjoy, it’s not a stretch to say that I hate it. I hate french fries, although I love potatoes. I knew that from my first bite. I also hate pickles, but love relish. Again, a first impression that has never changed with subsequent tastings. I also fucking hate Nickleback, and knew that from their first song. It’s a valid stance to take.

      Ad hominems are a way from distracting the argument. Yes, they can be very effective in the court of law (when not objected) or in politics, but they are a diversionary tactic towards the discussion at hand. If it’s elitist to dislike this band, explain way. If this band is good, explain what you like about them. Don’t go defensive. No one wins on defense. You can only lose ground, or get angry. Neither one really helps you.

      I’ve got a business meeting in a few, so I’m going to have to leave it at that. Also, don’t take it so personally.

Whatever you’re trying to portray me as here, it is not true and I’m disappointed.
      What would this site be without weird dumb time-wasting diatribes? Do you really think that that’s not exactly what Tiki hopes for?

      I would also like to state that my English has improved immensely since I started wasting all my Internet time on this site. Which is another reason why I’m going to continue with this until I get to study English in England or something insane like that.

Sometimes to motivate someone you need to use an intelligent multi purpose argument on them, in which you can share an example of vision and understanding to complete your the goal. But the reason why it hardly never works is because people are too hard headed, shrouded by there own believes (non-religious)to be corrected if wrong. you cannot teach someone something if they don’t want to learn. sadly nobody has the right hand to judge right from wrong. words decieve and lies so much it cannot be trusted so a form of reasoning in which one thing is inferred to be similar to another thing in a certain respect, on the basis of the known similarity between the things in other respects is or only option of desicion making. as much as i hate the restriction on our minds, It has made us strive to get better results for our questions. Another fault with this is that everything we do or say is based of emotions they impact everything we do. and everyone yes everyone loves to use this fact against this “dangerous” tatic, why dangerous? it’s stated in this comment.

      But I still think this band is full of shit.

      That’s the fags I’m talking about.

      No internets for you. The quote is from an unbelievably cool video game called Planescape: Torment. The answer to that question is pretty much the plot to the game.

      No idea on the two quotes you provided, but the second one sounds vaguely religious. So no internets for me, either.

      @ColombianMonkey:

      That was one long paragraph filled with spelling and grammatical mistakes. I reread it a few times, and get the gist of what you’re saying, even if you seemingly purposefully obtuse your meaning.

      Soooo… yes, people who aren’t receptive to criticism won’t really listen to an argument. I wouldn’t say everything we do is based on emotion, though it is always a factor.

      Really, I have to ask: Where you trying to make that as unclear as possible, or did the acid finally kick in?
