Upon growing up, how many times have we heard the phrase "Don't judge a book by its cover?" The tiny idiom is quite a powerful one, especially for the push of a more open minded societyâ?¦

That album cover is not fooling anybody, though.

I knew little about Stutterfly before I received And We Are Bled of Color in the mail, so like any respectable journalist I did my research. I read a handful of interviews and reviews about the band and each one details how the group perfectly mixes "emo and anger."

Since I have never heard of such an analogy, I eagerly wedged the album into my iBook. iTunes loaded up and all I heard was a continuous thump, over, and over, and over, and over again. It took me until track nine to figure out that the sound was that of an Andy Van Slyke-autographed Louisville Slugger pummeling the corpse of a noble steed that has long passed.

And We Are Bled Of Color is the major label attempt to cash in on a trend that is fading in the underground just like the all black uniform the members of Stutterfly dawn. Hackneyed song titles, singing, screaming, unsurprising metal guitar riffs â?? repeat â?? trade-in.

ridiculous, this album has for more to offer, and the thing is, these boys were around long before the trend even started, so get off you high horse. I know it might be hard, but the higher you try to put yourself, the more it'll hurt. As the saying goes: the taller that the giant is...

md40_07 (June 30, 2005)

injuries are bad luck i agree...unless they happen every year like Griffey's did. Griffey has been hurt every year since joining the Reds, Pujols is yet to miss 20 games in a season and is on pase to shatter anything Griffey has ever dreamed of touching in the record books...but anyway...lets talk about music again

Your baseball knowledge is on par with your music tastes...

Injuries are simply bad luck unless it was a players fault...

And Pujois is never going to be a Griffey.

md40_07 (June 29, 2005)

Screw Griffey, he is horrible, the lock out was the only season he missed that wasn't his fault, he can't stay healty cause he blows now anyway, u wanna see a player? Albert Pujols is awesome, he is the fastest player to get to 100 career homers, and he isn't slowing down

It took me reading this review to realize the review beat his wife with a bat, causing her to release a stillborn with a wet thud on the floor.

You obviously don't get this album.....

Screw Bonds.

Injuries are a bitch, eh?

Griffey be chasing that home run minus a lock out and 3 injured seasons. Now Bonds wont get to 755 cause of that knee and what am I doing, laughing.

And I rember Andy Van Sylke from Tecmo Baseball on the Sega Genesis as I had a season as the Pirates...

rkl (June 26, 2005)

andy van slyke was the white guy the pirates chose to keep instead of barry bonds.

oops.

I have to say that was one of the worst reviews I've read on this site, and I say this without any bias to the music or the reviewer. Honestly, elaborate a bit before you tear it to pieces; that way your position is 100% justified without sounding like trend-jumping bullshit.

I was worried that this would get a good review after the Funeral For A Friend incident. Thank god for you kirbs.

I do it for folks like you.

As for the 'don' and 'dawn' thing, honestly, I didn't know there was a difference, so I just went for that. My apologies for the word mix up.

Shouldn't it be a reference to the black uniforms they "don", not dawn... dawn being of course when the sun comes up. Unless i've totally misread that (in which case, many apologies) might want to proofread better.

I cried laughing.

Their first independantly released album 'broken in pieces' was actually good and they've redone some of those songs for this album. Compare the two versions of songs redone and you will quickly see where this band has gone wrong, overproduced, formulaic garbage.

"witty" band names need to fucking die."

So do horrible album titles like this.

Score's for the PA reference.

1) One of the coaches for another team in my Little League was/is Van Slyke's uncle.

2) Brian sent this to me too, and I laughed out loud when I read "emo and anger," but I really couldn't hate on this album as much. It wasn't good, I gave it a 4 or something, but this was brutal.

lou (June 24, 2005)

score's for andy van slyke

DestroyingTheScene (June 24, 2005)

They're from my hometown, so I give the the "props" but yeah, I miss when they were called Uncle Ed's Private Jet. Haha, such a ridiculuous name...

Anonymous (June 24, 2005)
