Fair To Midland - "Amarillo Sleeps On My Pillow"

Fair To Midland - "A Loophole In Limbo"

Fair To Midland - "Musical Chairs"

Holy fucking shit.

This truly proves that Darroh is one of the best vocalists alive.

those are amazing. I especially like Amarillo, it works really well like this. makes it sound even more grunge than it already did.

and Darroh's on fucking top, man. I think I'm beginning to have gay feelings for him.

Yeah, Amarillo really stands out. His voice is unreal in that performance.

a loophole in limbo and bright bulbs were two tracks that really grew on me. the hits on this album are packed like sardines

i don't listen to evanesence so i wouldn't know... but even if the vibe should sound similar -2/5? really? that means that the song material is bad too. and we know that's not the case. oh well, just some guy's opinion

so first the bassist Jon left, to focus on his other band. now the drummer Brett left as well, apparantly under not-so-good circumstances. he talked about a sinking ship and legal matters, but no one really knows what the deal is.

they have a new bassist and drummer however, at least for the remainder of the US tour, and it sounds like they'll keep going as a band. one of the shows will be recorded for the upcoming live DVD.

I really hope this isn't the beginning of the end of the band, as I feel they're just getting started and haven't even reached their full potential yet. the official message did sound pretty positive though.
