... are annoying the shit out of me.
Seriously, people, can't you get it straight?
Didn't we have the same shit after the release of Stacked Rubbish? So many people started ranting about how Gazette were going down, how terrible the album was, their new style, bla bla, only a tiny percentage of people were openly praising how they developed their style, the rest kept their thoughts under cover or swimming with the current - and how many of those that had been ranting eventually found out that the album was pretty good? And how many of those went totally crazy over either seeing them live, or NOT being able to see them live because they didn't tour there
with those terrible new songs
and how many of those suddenly thought what
about the RCE performance?
Yeah, so Stacked Rubbish was something to get used to at first, but already after the first time listening with a slightly startled expression on my face, I already knew that I would be falling for that album as well, just as it always had been with any of my favourite bands. The first time they'd release something that was different from everything else, it needed time to get used to that new style, but in the end, it was that development and being different that made it be so great.
Now, about Leech...
Honestly, I haven't been listening to the song apart from the first 13 seconds or so, deciding that I would wait for its release, just as I tend to deal with new songs. So I can't comment about whether Leech is trashy or not [as I read several times in this post
]. I read on my FL shortly after the unofficial release of the song how great
it was supposed to be.
Extremely varying opinions about things tend to be an indicator about their artistic greatness. It's always been like that, no. If there's no critique, no opinion about a work of art, that is most probably because it's boring, because there's nothing to say (and I'm not talking about works of art that render you speechless. Reviewers always
will have something to say.) When there are people practically tearing something apart by their differing opinions, it's quite clear that that work has a lot of potential. The more, the more obnoxious and repulsive they seem.
And now that the covers have been posted, people start ranting about how terrible the covers are.
Seriously, did you sit down and look at those tiny previews closely?
I have the feeling, many just saw the style, which is
very different from all the other styles of their previous covers, that's true, and judging from a superficial appearance, they say that they don't like it.
I took a closer look however. Already at first glance I thought that they fit to the title, to Leech.
I don't find the covers terrible at all. They are very different from all the others, that's true, and at first sight they seemed to be quite 'weird', but all in all, they fit. I mean, Leech? The man with the money? Weapons? Yes, leech. Totally. And the person behind a closed door, excluded from a couple of dancing people, women maybe, celebrating and having fun? It's standing there all alone, lost, close to a precipice. And then the burning somethings in the background? Havoc?
Say again that the covers are terrible and don't say anything at all? Those two tiny previews make it definitely hard to see the details. Even I can see that there's more to the cover than what meets the eye. And the covers definitely do speak. They even speak loudly
So yeah. That was said. Sheesh, people stop ranting.
