alexisonfire are really good, and you're right about the lyrical part, just wish Dallas would have stuck with Alexisonfire instead of starting that City And Colour project. I DO NOT want to here another song about scissors and/or razorblades

I agree with you about the Dallas Green part... Did you here Charlie Sheen VS. Henry ROllins Yet?? It's a great song...

Counterparts and Number Them and A Dagger Through The Heart of St. Angeles are my favourites. I love their S/T, but I though Watch Out! was kind of weak.

Obviously, you don't understand the concept of a metaphor. City and Colour is better than Alexisonfire in my opinon, and I think that they are both great.
My favourite Alexis song is either The Kennedy Curse or Happiness By The Kilowatt

I really like Alexisonfire alot. My favorite song would have to be control. That intro riff is so frickin awesome. I havent heard anything from their self-titled though.

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.

I like City & Color. Dallas is great.


Alexisonfire is one of my fave bands. My fave songs would have to be Charlie Sheen vs henry Rollins, Waterwings, Pulmonary Archery, Accidents, No Transitory, and White Devil

my favorites are "it was the fear of myself that made me odd" and "adelleda"
i think that the S/T was better than Watch out, i do like watch out but .... George hardly screams in it, its mostly Dallas "sharks and danger" for example

Surprised no-one has mentioned "Little Girls Pointing And Laughing" yet. Has to be one of my faves. Yeah I think I prefer the self-titled. George's vocals are just that bit screamier
Pulmonary Archery is an amazing, amazing song and watching the video is just brilliant. That is what playing music in a band is all about.
I was hooked on Alexis from the very first time I heard Dallas do the wailing vocal line on No Transitory. "Tomoro-ow-owo-wow" etc
Superb band. Can't wait for crisis. I hear it's faster and maybe heavier.

I'm seeing Dallas on Sunday night in Cardiff.

As for Alexis, the thing for me that sets them apart from other bands is mainly the vocals. The music is fantastic too, and is just that bit catchier/more aggressive/complex/faster than their peers. But few bands have got the whole yin/yang thing going on with the vocals in the same way that Alexis do. Great live band too.

Self titled is probably more solid than Watch Out but I do like that CD just as much. Favourite track is either 'No Transitory' or 'Waterwings'
