God Forbid - Earthsblood
Cu putin timp inainte de aparitia albumului Earthsblood, Dallas Coyle, chitaristul si vocalistul trupei americane God Forbid, a facut o declaratie prin care ne recomanda ce fel de recenzii sa citim despre viitorul produs:
I’ll tell you what to look for and what to disregard as BS when looking at reviews for our new album. 1. What to look for: Look for the reviews that break down the songs using music as a reference. Look for a review that talks about how this album differs from our last and what the growth from the last record to this one is. Look for reviews that say we’re the best band ever. 2. What not to look for: Don’t look for reviews that talk about a specific emotion the album as a whole represents. Don’t look for reviews that say we’re revitalizing any genre. Don’t look for reviews that say I’m not good looking.
Earthsblood is a good record. I know it. My band knows it. The people who’ve heard it know it. We don’t need people to lick our balls for us to know we’ve written a great record. You don’t need critics in some magazine letting you know we made a great record. What you should know is that we tried to make the best album we could and that’s why it’s worth putting your cash down to support the record. We want to please the people who love the band. If we write shit records then we don’t deserve to be doing this. If we write shit records, we’ll get shit for it. Actually, that’s not true. A lot of bands write shitty records and they are fucking huge. I’m not naming names!
Astept momentul in care Dallas Coyle ne va spune care sunt revistele si siteurile agreate de trupa God Forbid, care sunt persoanele potrivite sa scrie o recenzie a unui album God Forbid si, de ce nu, care este nota potrivita pentru un album God Forbid. Eu o sa incerc sa combin punctul 1 cu punctul 2. God Forbid a crescut de la album la album. Ma refer la Gone Forever, IV: Constitution of Treason si Earthsblood, cele trei albume pe care le-am ascultat din discografia acestei trupe. Membrii God Forbid si-au prezentat fiecare nou album ca pe o capodopera. De fiecare data am zambit si am ajuns la aceeasi concluzie: tot timpul au lasat impresia ca au capacitatea de a face un mare album, dar niciodata nu le-a iesit. Mai au o sansa, maxim doua. Pana atunci, ne multumim cu Earthsblood si traim cu speranta.
L.E. Se pare ca Dallas Coyle nu ne va mai spune nimic. A parasit God Forbid.
