well... then what's the big problem here? blink fans are apparently saying "if the new album sounds like AVA, i'm gonna kill something!" but if the demos sound like the untitled c.d, then I don't see why they're complaining in the first place...
why do we need to be squabbling over this when fans of both bands approve of the demos??
also, i didn't find the podcast to be that friendly. yeah, no chairs were thrown, obviously, but it wasn't exactly... i don't really know how to put what i'm thinking...
example, the question one of them asked Charissa, (paraphrased obviously) "do you want the album to be good, or do you want the album to suck?" umm, what kind of question is that? it's not like every single AVA fan is super angry and want to see Blink fail, a lot of them will follow whatever Tom does, and be cool with whatever that is.
i found that they put AVA fans into one category, and i'm not cool with that. people are different, there's no way every blink fan thinks alike, and that goes for AVA fans, too.
obviously, this is just my opinion, i don't want to make any trouble, i'm just stating my feelings on the matter.
There isn't a problem. The podcast was a general debate. I do think it came off a little edgier on the recording everyone heard. We'd done the podcast the night before but the recording was corrupted, so I think all of us had a bit of frustration of trying to recall and recreate some of the things we'd covered the first time.
The thing about the demos is this, supposedly the Blink guys haven't actually put any of their stuff together yet, so it's likely those demos are nothing like the end result will be anyway. It was just a topic of discussion.
What it's going to turn out to be is just a whole lot of speculation.
You made a valid point about the categories of AVA and Blink fans. The podcast was mostly representing the "far left" and the "far right" of the spectrum if you will.
Even in those specific categories everyone's personality, taste and life experience effect how they think and how they personally respond to either of the bands and what it happening with them right now.
And I can tell you what kind of question that was...a difficult one. I stand by my answer.
