    Do you consider 311 to be "the Beatles" of rap/rock?

    I didn't really notice it at first, but it quickly rose to my favorite track.

    I listen to a lot of System of a Down, and they have a ton of under 3 min songs. My mind wants my other bands i love to adopt more shorter songs haha

    I just want Nick to let it fuckin rip.
    No more trying to croon, carry out lines and hit deep notes. Stop trying to "sing" every lyric. Use some old school vocal fx on choruses and bring the swagger back to the booth for aggressive stuff. Don't worry about pitch and over analyze yourself too much. Get scratchy if you need to. Give em hell! I want that.

    Yeah man, totally agree. I don't know if he really has it in him, he has a total boner about being more of a "proper musician." I also remember him giving Jonathan Davis from Korn huge props on what I believe was the "Take A Look In The Mirror" album because Davis took vocal lessons and did more "proper singing" on the album.

    Then again, I think he does pretty much let it rip on "First Dimension". It almost reminds me of a Blue Album/Transistor era Hexum. His vocals all manage to be catchy and cool, but, they are also really pretty fuckin weird and he had no regard at all in chasing a hit or whatever. This is definitely one of my favorite songs of theirs ever, let alone in the past decade or so. I had a boner for it during the Pledge campaign and they showed Nick and Scotch working on it, then the final product exceeded my expectations on top of that.

    FD is my favorite track on the album. And it's one of the songs that Nick elevates with his vocals. That sound could have easily been a generic rock song, but Nick got interesting without losing catchiness.

    I basically agree but I think Nick really kills it on a lot of Mosaic (scratch most of the Feldy songs).

    I love his rap on Wildfire and his singing. I think his verse on Perfect Mistake slays. The vocals on Syntax Error remind me of FC stuff. He does some interesting stuff on The Night Is Young that feels very new. Extension is perfect.

    He does love that 'proper' stuff, but he definitely has it in him. We gotta somehow nudge him in that direction...

    IDEA!: Can someone sneak into his house and die his hair blonde when he's asleep? Then he'll be back to normal and is bound to make good music

    Nick just needs to sing on top of songs like Eons or Syntax Errors. The tones are perfect for his range and they soar, imo.

    Nick has a voice meant to soar and/or rap. When he tries to go Whitney on the bit he sounds the way ace ventures looks wearing a pink tutu.

    I’ve got one wish for this album: to be an uplift. And I need an uplift to deal.








    Sorry.

    At least two songs on the album that are 10 minutes long. They could definitely pull off a Yes-type Close to the Edge epic. And with SA as the lead vocal since he's got Jon Anderson range. I think Nick's guitar and synth skills would be better utilized than is vocals. Wildfire, Extensional Hero, Too Later and Friday Afternoon seemed like tip of the iceberg type of epic prog-rock they could do.
