@Warvick You're entitled to have your opinion, nothing wrong with that, but what songs in your opinion are great and what are not are just that, your opinion.
Sure, it's all about subjectivity, but still, some songs are fresh and some sound like any-other-band-in-the-world, and that's where I want to make a point, most of their singles (from the 2nd and 3rd albums) are not fresh, at all. They're just rock songs, nothing epic, nothing special, why should anyone listen to some more of the same old same old?
You just pay attention, some songs are not worth publishing because they're not interesting or original, the world doesn't need more rock songs that sound all the same, it doesn't change things or shape culture at all.
And to say something like "Roses would have made them more famous" is just silly. How can you know that?
Because of the support they received over the net, you look for Roses in Youtube and find lots of find videos. You may say "oh well, but being famous isn't the goal" of course not, but selling more cd's is, because it helps them make longer tours or travel further to meet fans in other parts of the world.
And to say some song is pulled from up their butt is just rude. I'm sure they put a lot of effort into all their
Trying to reason with you is of course a futile intent, after all most of people here are die-hard fans, who think that anything POTF is good just because it's POTF. This is of course ludicrous.
It's funny how many people in this forum say things like:
I have to say that my impressions about CYHM are changed a lot, after listening to it more times in HQ
You certainly have to get used to it
It's like "Oh you didn't like it? Well just listen it relentlessly until you do!" I despise this kind of cult-like behaviour.
It's not my intention to bash the band, in fact they're my favourite band, but if they are doing shitty songs I won't say "oh I never listened to such beautiful melodies in my life, Marko is truly an angel sent by god".
Fan-critiques are useful for a band, in fact they're crucial. Think about it (or don't). If someone who supported your music from the beginning says to you "Hey dude, you're losing your touch" you listen to him, because:
A) He/She Knows what you're capable of
B) Your previous work had a positive impact on him/her.
C) They saw something fresh in your music that they couldn't find in any other band in the world.
D) They supported you from the very beginning, it's obvious their critiques are not destructive but constructive,
You may not respect all the choices they have made or like all the albums either, but it still remains their choice.
Oh of course, Marko could feature in one of Justin Bieber's songs and people like you would say "He's such a talented artist, he isn't concealed in just one music genre, his music is so beautiful". When in fact it sucks.
