    Angels and Airwaves

    Are there any AVA fans out there that know if they are coming out with their 3rd album this year or anytime soon? Or, have they broken up?

    Awesome thanks! After doing a little searching I also see that it's release date is December 25th. What a nice little Christmas present! I hope it's as good, if not better, than their last 2 albums.

    With Blink getting back together, who knows how often AvA will churn stuff out in the future.

    Hopefully never. Tom DeLonge has turned into a pretentious ***** since he left blink-182. I remember him calling AvA the "future of music" or something like that. I thought it might have potential. Then I heard his U2 rips and laughably over-emotic vocals. Then there was this article: Angels & Airwaves: 'Love' Album, Film To Be Released For Free | News @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com

    He compares himself to Pink Floyd and "The Wall". Really? Come on Tom, blink was decent but AvA is just, well... I guess I kinda feel like a dick for raining on your guys's parade, but I really can't stand AvA.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    first off, what musician isn't pretentious? But i'll agree, he is a bit full of himself. And honestly, i would compare the sound to Pink Floyd(which i love) more then U2(which i hate). The guitars have a lot of the echos and long sustains like Gilmours does. For example like on Run Like Hell. AVA has lots of those types of sounds.

    Their first album is similiar to The Wall in the way that it's kinda got a story line and the feel of it. I'm not saying it's better, because the wall is amazing, but it's simliliar. and don't feel bad, i'm sure there's stuff you listen to that i hate too hehe.

    another band that's i like a lot is 30 Seconds to Mars that i'm sure some people feel the same way about.

    but with both those bands, the thing i love is the theatrics with the videos and the marketing/design work. i guess that's cuz i'm a designer.

    I can only hope and pray that AvA never releases anymore music. If any of those side projects needs to put out a new album its Boxcar Racer.

    Or, you know, blink can just go back to putting stuff out.

    Re: Angels and Airwaves

    I enjoy listening to AvA but their music is over produced and too "deep". I didnt read that article above but I remember reading one when Tom said that he wanted listeners to "put in the cd, turn off the lights, light some candles, listen to the cd the whole way through and just think about the meaning." Really?

    I enjoy some of the sounds but the lyrics are way too forced and he attempts to make metaphors that sometimes just boggle me.

    I'll agree with this. I love the sound of their music, especially the delay effects with their guitars. And the lyrics to all of the songs have a very "deep" message, like you said, almost too deep. But, the main reason I like them is because of the style and sound of the music.
