Not a huge fan of the lead off single, but their last two releases have been nearly flawless. Can't wait to hear the rest of it.

Still think these guys are ridiculously over-rated, but I like the new song. Good stuff, and I'll be hoping for an album to finally live up to their hype.

 

Jeez the lead singer looks different these days...

With your undying love for Cauterize or Papa Roach, I'm shocked Shinedown isn't to your liking. They aren't the same, but all of the above are great melodic modern rock. The vocalist has to be one of the top 5 singers in modern rock. Despite not freakin' over the lead off single, I'm surely gonna get this one.

I've gone into it in great depth in many threads if you can find them, but the general gist of the whole thing is that yes, I love a lot of modern rock bands but to me these guys are very, very middle of the road and I think there are hundreds of better modern rock bands than them. Yes, they're okay, but it's kinda like those people who think Bon Jovi are the only good melodic rock band out there. There are hundreds of better bands than Shinedown, imo of course, yet people seem to think they're the beginning and end of the modern rock world.

I find myself not surprised we disagree but really? Middle of the road? They may be the best in the genre of this kind of music. Way better than the other two bands mentioned.

And that's the type of reply I'd expect from everyone who's only knowledge of modern rock is basically Shinedown and that's it. And that's what I mean by the Bon Jovi reply.

 

If you heard the amount of modern rock bands I like to enjoy, you'd realise pretty quick that Shinedown are nothing special at all. The fact that you guys are comparing them to Cauterize or Papa Roach pretty much says it all. That's not far off comparing Pantera to Pretty Boy Floyd in terms of how similar they are. Yeah, they're all rock bands but that's about the end of the similarities. ;)

 

I'd be interested to see a list of all the bands they are supposedly better than in "the genre of this kind of music."

Pantera to Pretty Boy Floyd compared with Papa Roach To Shinedown.

 

Jesus give me some credit! At least the latter two play the same genre and generally share the same fans, the other two are from two completely different spectrums of rock.

 

I'm sure on a music bill you'd have a better chance of Papa Roach touring with Shinedown, rather than Pantera touring with Pretty Boy Floyd.

 

You don't have to like Shinedown, I'm just surprised you don't.

The discussion always ends up here... I have never said I don't like Shinedown. I think they're a decent band. Just massively, massively over-rated on this site.

 

They're fine. I just don't get the complete adoration for a band that, as far as I can see, have done nothing to deserve such adoration. I think the thing that irritates me most is people who slag off modern rock in general, probably without hearing 95% of the bands they supposedly hate, yet they rant and rave about Shinedown... who are a solid band... but like I said, just mid-range, imo, of course.

 

I guess my thing is, if you're (not you specifically, Dave) going to call a band the best of a particular genre, at least be well versed in the other bands that are actually in said genre.

The lead single is pretty weak imo.

 

However their last 2 albums have been excellent imo and great examples of classic rock sounding music with a modern approach.

 

I think this is the reason the band doesnt well with Geoff cos they have that classic rock sound.

 

My point is this : to most people The Crow and the Butterfly would be a great ballad with an amazing vocal, but i bet Geoff hates it?

 

See if im right......

Horrible song. One of their worst. ;)

 

And not sure what you guys are hearing in this dude's voice either. It's okay... for a modern rock vocalist.

I know enough about modern rock to know most of it sucks, other than Shinedown. I never used the above compared bands. I actually think Papa Roach is fairly decent but as I mentioned before, I wouldn't piss on Cauterize if they were on fire along with many more modern bands.

And that's basically what I mean. I'd be interested to know how many good modern rock bands you've actually heard to make such a summation. Not that I think Cauterize would be your thing, but I'm guessing you've probably heard about a minute sample somewhere once and made your decision about them... as with most your modern rock assessments, I'm guessing. ;)

See.

 

The song is actually pretty great, with an amazing vocal...but it is more of a classic rock style which is why you dont like it.

 

The reason why this band is huge is that the general populace love this style of music.

 

Simple as that.

Not impressed with the second track either! Bummer! I'm still hoping the rest is better, but so far I'm not really liking it.

Nope, I downloaded an album you were raving about several years back and made it through four songs. Then I thanked God I didn't actually spend money on it ;)

Crap is slightly harsh lol.

 

But yeah neither song is anywhere near the quality of their last 2 albums.

I actually thought the first track showed a bit more fire than about 90% of the stuff on their last album, which I was not really a fan of. The second track, well, it's just crap. ;)

To be honest the whole modern genre has taken a turn for the worse.

 

5 years ago i bought a fair bit of modern rock but this year the only release worth anything is Destine, but even they have called it a day now.

 

Not worth these bands continuing - they get their crowdfunding from the die hard fans then as soon as the album is finished its leaked on the net and every twat proceeds to download it for free.

 

Soon there will be no up and coming new bands.

You should tell your co-workers about them... they seem to be the only people left in the world still buying CDs. ;)

 

Anyway, I agree the modern rock scene isn't what it used to be only a few years ago, but there's still good bands out there. I've heard some nice ones this year and can assure you that Shinedown, which y'all will rave about, will be eclipsed many times over if you try a few others...

    • 100% cob. As I've said through all this, I could not give the most remote of fucks if people wear masks, isolate and lock themselves down, get vaccinated and do whatever they wish to do. No qualms at all with everyone making a choice for themselves about what's right. What I just can absolutely not stand, is how every single thing in our daily lives over the past 18 months has been, and is being forced upon us by the government. Specifically, Dr Kerry Chant is currently ordering 8 million people how to live their lives in NSW. Not one in this group of 8 million is allowed to think for themselves - we all do what Kerry Chant is forcing us to do. It is absolute madness.  And then you break it down state by state and it's the same situation in each Australian state. Every single person in Australia is being told how to live by their premier, via whatever "health official" is telling him/her how to run their state. No one here is living at the moment, just existing according to how our government and health officials want us to exist.   That is horrendous, and exactly why we should each be able to make up our own minds about stuff like this. In this case, criminal that this it is forced upon someone. I hope they go through with the lawsuit and destroy the place, not that it'll ever give that girl her mother back. Jeez you've brought some common sense to this place, squire. Had this same thought a million times when you hear someone harping on about how rare it is to die from a vaccine. I always wanted someone - just one person - to point out how rare it is to die from covid too, like you say, particularly for certain age groups. But of course that never comes up because that might reduce the fear and hysteria over it all.  Interesting post, mate. You had me until the "mask up" bit. For me personally, that is the first thing that needs to go. Again, like I said above, more than happy for anyone and everyone who wants or feels like they need to wear a mask to do so, but I am more against them than anything I've been against in my entire life and cannot handle being forced to wear the stupid fucking things.  Anyway, a couple of interesting things happening in Australia today. No one outside NSW would know 2GB, but they're the highest rating radio station in the land and apparently the weekday morning host there has started swaying towards calling for an end to all encompassing lockdowns and acknowledging that there must be another plan of attack. Not news for people with common sense, but a big step considering how panic stricken and all on board with all restrictions every other host on that station has been so far. I found it very intriguing. Will see if he still has a job in a week.  Also, big protests in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane today against continued lockdowns. Pretty big turnouts. I usually despise protests, but I understand these ones and for once, support them. Obviously a lot of people feeling completely helpless out there and seeing opportunities like that as the only chance to get their voices heard. 
    • Does anyone else on here love Good Rats? I love the band but im a huge Gene Marchello fan, he can shred, and I loved his solo discs, love this song    
    • I've been "80s Pop" reminiscing today. These six are huge time machines for me. I know, six songs of the day is a little excessive, but there were so many great Pop tracks that we all grew up with. Maybe 80s Pop memories deserves a thread of it's own? "The Breakfast Club" video is pure 80s, BTW.                
    • honey are you ready for the gunk. ADC
    • Another of Canada's finest...    
    • So I will chime in, but it matters not I'd assume. Firstly doesn't the actual illness have to be in the shot for it to be considered a "vaccine"? Everything I have read says that these shots do not contain COVID. IE: the flu shot, actually contains the flu, so its a vaccine. A Ruebella shot contains, yep Ruebella. Measles shot, ding ding ding, contains measles... so everyone, those are vaccines. If that is the case the first push for intelligence is to stop brainwashing the public into thinking and saying "get vaccinated" when its not. I also read that when you get these experimental shots (as obviously there have been very limited to no trails, so no one know wtf will happen or not from them) you sign a waiver (probably unknown to the shot receiver) that basically states tuff shit if you get sick or die cuz you waived/signed away your rights to use this experimental (or trial) drub. And lastly, just like everything in life having the choice and voice to do for you what you think is best is what its all about. The government or bullying or peer pressure shouldn't dictate shot or no shot. If you are safe, then you won't get it, simple. I know more than 2 handful of people that are fully "vaccinated" and still got COVID. So wtf is that? Be safe everyone, be smart. Mask up, hand sanitize, keep your meathooks out of your eyes and mouth and you'll do just fine.
    • I remember the Left using false statistics about terrorism attacks to shout down people with legitimate concerns. Like "you have more chance of dying from your fridge falling on you than terrorism". Such a fake stat. when you consider you go near a refrigerator dozens of times a day and you may only come near a terrorist once in your life if you are unlucky.  Funny that the same form of manipulation of stats isn't applied to dying from covid. So yes, it is rare to die from a vaccine  but, guess what, it is just as equally rare to die from covid as a 45 year old.
