OPINION ON ATL AND LAST YOUNG RENEGADE
Ok so I really need to make an statement after seeing all those comments saying: “I’m afraid is Dirty Work” “ATL are sellouts now” “so mainstream I wish they release something like The Party Scene or SWIR”
Like please shut up, everytime they release something I see comments like this, they are growing up, years go by, they don’t like the same shit that they do when they were 17, like for godsake nothing in the world was the same it is, they are artists pushing themselves out of the box they like to try new things and not stay in the nostalgia like the way you’d like them to sound.
The 3 songs so far doesn’t sound nothing like Dirty Work, these sound fresh and reinvented like nothing else before, besides DW being the most hated record, the guys are proud of it besides it flawed multi-production it has some solid songs and want it or not, if it had received the right marketing and promotion, it would have been a hit for them back when it was released.
Now they are trying something new, something that can sound different, yes they release Don’t Panic and that’s really the rawest ATL ever, but this band has always have a guilty pleasure for Pop songs and you are definitely deaf if you call yourself a fan and can’t notice this, if you see they have more pop songs than rock or punk ones, because that’s what they like to do.
If you have met them or read their social networks you cam see how excited they were during the whole process of making these new songs and were happy as hell, so imagine the bummer that it is for them seeing all those crappy comments on something that they put all the effort in the world to do and that they are proud of, if you don’t like it don’t listen to it anymore.
To end this, they aren’t sellouts they are doing what they love not being forced by someone, they are inspired by what they listen to actually they get inspirations from their surroundings that being a TV show or Radio music, they do this for a living of course they want to win more money, for example if you work for 10 usd would you do it all your life for that amount or would you try to win more? Of course more! That’s what all the bands want to win more money and to know more countries, tour more, etc and this is a band that wants to go throught that but by doing always what they love not by what people want them to be, that’s the reason they are my favorite band.
Sorry for all this big text, for whoever cares to read it, i just thought it needed to be said or written.
