Wow. Really? Fucking Really? I like the song , I liked the song in the previous version too. So in this forum which is supposed to be a discussion about music I can't say that I thought some of the lines in the older version were really fucking cool in delivery? I listened to the Demo Version so many times that isn't is normal that I would find the diffrences jarring at first? I like the new version as well , though my new favorite song of the album is Stuff To Refund Counter. I thought the whole point about being a Fan of Frank's is the sense of community and the abillity to be able to express your opinion. But I guess anything even remotely close to critique instantly makes me a scene kid and an asshole. This is one of the first "Real" Hardcore records I've ever listened and I quite enjoyed it. I don't prefer the old stuff , I like when stuff evolves. But I guess saying that I thought some of the lines in the early version felt really awesome in delivery and that I felt some of that rawness was lost in the new version instanly makes my opinion invalid and me as a hipster.skhmmxi wrote:I think you might have just broken a world record in how fast you laid down scene points, there.

Not only do you proclaim to like a song and then subsequently claim to prefer the older version only a few posts later IN THE SAME THREAD, you've actually managed to lay the foundations of the Shoreditch classic "I preferred the older stuff" slam in the week of release of the debut album.
I'm so thoroughly astonished at your accomplishment I think you deserve a standing ovation. You might well have a bright future ahead of you at Dazed and Confused magazine as a music feature writer. Best of luck.
Should I say I like every frank song as well? Cause If I don't like The Ladies Of London Town I'm probably not a real fan. God Forbid I express my opinion which is supposed to be the whole point of a forum. Lets just have a circlejerk of people saying nothing but how amazing the record is. Did I say I thought the record sucked or I wish it sounded like the old one? No. I just said outloud what I felt about the song. I guess I shouldn't fucking say anything cause then you'll jump at the first chance to write a post mocking me trying to get yourself over and be funny. Which You were , But seriously , You just completely made me look like shit for no reason other then I expressed my opinion and made me a laughing stock. So thanks for that man , I really appreciate getting this much shit for saying I thought the record was ace but saying If anybody else noticed the changes in Casual Threats.
And I would never write in a Music Magazine because I don't feel knowledgeble enough to propely critique music. Of course my opinion doesn't count for shit since I'm just trying to earn scene points.
But You know what? I don't give a shit.You had a great post , I'll give you credit. I just feel bad that it had to be on my expense since I really wasn't trying to get scene points or saying WHY CANT IT BE LIKE THE OLD STUFF. I actually listened to the Frank Interview on Sharing Needles yesterday that touched on this very subject and agreed with him and the hosts that music should evolve I like the album alot , Staff to Refund Counter is great. I really like Weak Handshake as well. I know the lyrics are supposed to be over the top but Frank sings with such conviction that I feel like even though they are extreme they do evoke emotion in him. I think I like this over the Million Dead stuff , even though I didn't listen to alot of Million Dead. This album is actually really fitting to the way I've been feeling lately and its a joy to have a soundtrack to accompany those feelings. I completely rocked out in the street to Make Way at about 3AM last friday. Was great.
Matt and Ben did such a great job on the instrumental side of things Seriously Outstanding job
