Le Desordre, C'est Moi
Resident Emo Purist/Elitist
If any other band had released the album exactly as it was, it would have been considered good, if not great. If it went to Avenged Sevenfold? "Omg what innovation in their sound did you hear that high note in There Was a Time?!" Rise Against? "Omg it's like a concept album!" It would have been a critic's darling.
But since everyone still wants to hear another Welcome to the Jungle, it gets bashed.
Also, I have butter cookies!
