Estranged Reality Posted December 20, 2008 Share Posted December 20, 2008 (edited) Probably my most anticipated upcoming record. Supposedly they're heading to the studio in February to begin recording for a summer release. Should be wicked. Not much has been reported since early this year but all the bandmembers seem to be ready for another record. I was just listening to the Is This It? demos again last night and earlier today... I don't know what it is about them, but there's something I just love about their sound. The guitar solos are messy but so is everything, really -- in that way it reminds me of Appetite; they have a very lo-fi, gritty sound. People say it's like the Velvet Underground, which I can hear a bit, and they did a great cover of Lou Reed's Walk on the Wild Side, but I do think it also owes a lot to some of the gritty sounds a la the Stones, GN'R, etc. (Slash and Matt were in their Somedays video too, and they thanked Sorum in their second album's liner notes, so I guess they're fans.) is one of the best songs of all-time, IMO. I never get sick of it. Awesome riff, great vocals, fun lyrics ("I wanna steal your innocence / To me my life it just don't make any sense").
