Wow, I'm not impressed with that song at all. For one thing the verse has exactly the same "melody" as the "chorus" which makes the whole thing really repetitive. And the "melody" only has about 4 notes in it. Really dull and boring IMO.

I gave it one listen and it didn't do much for me.

I'm sure I'll still buy it but that's not a promising preview.

It's a little underwhelming. I was disappointed in their last album. Hopefully this one is better.

I haven't listened to it for a while, but I can only remember two songs from it.

It was "Signed and Sealed In Blood" right?

That reminds me I keep meaning to research the story behind "Jimmy Collins' Wake" from that album

Well, that was easy.

Quote :
James Joseph Collins (January 16, 1870 – March 6, 1943) was an American professional baseball player. He played fourteen seasons in Major League Baseball. Collins was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1945.

Collins was especially regarded for his defense. He was best known for his ability to field a bunt—prior to his debut, it was the shortstop who fielded bunts down the third base line—and is regarded as a pioneer of the modern defensive play of a third baseman. As of 2012, he is second all-time in putouts by a third baseman behind Brooks Robinson.[1] At the plate, Collins finished his career with 65 home runs, 1055 runs scored, 983 RBI and a .294 batting average.

Collins was also the first manager of the Boston Red Sox franchise, then known as the Boston Americans. He was the winning manager in the first-ever World Series, as Boston defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1903 World Series, five games to three.

Boston-based Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys recorded the song "Jimmy Collins' Wake" on their 2013 album Signed and Sealed in Blood. The song, originally written by Richard Johnson, recounts Collins' wake in Buffalo, New York

I hadn't heard of him before either. More trivia to file away.

I was browsing through Bandcamp and found the new album there.

Just sampling bits and pieces of this album and I think that "Blood" song is probably the worst song on the album. The rest sounds like vintage DKM to me.

First Class Loser is pretty good. I find the album a little weak overall though.

You didn't like Signed and Sealed though either did you?

I think this one sounds a lot like that.

I didn't like that one as much either. Last one I really enjoyed was Going out in Style; that one is really solid.

I'm debating if I should download it from Bandcamp or Amazon. Bandcamp is $1.50 cheaper but I'd have to once again put my credit card on another site and I like to limit my exposure. Plus I don't know anything about their customer support if something goes wrong with the DL. I know Amazon will stand behind theirs.

Amazon stands behind everything. For what it's worth, I've used Bandcamp before and not had any problems.
