My name is Mel, 23 years old. I was an occasional poster on ATW (Yuku-era), but am already shirking my work responsibilites to read and post here.
As far as my history of listening to the band, I became aware of their music when Boxer was released, loved “Mistaken for Strangers” but thought the rest of what I heard was dreadfully boring. A couple years ago I decided to give the album another go, unearthed the band’s subtle, seductive allure, and then got everything else. I’m really looking forward to discussing (arguing about?) the new album with everyone here!
Welcome to all the new faces! I joined this forum in the lead up to High Violet because Bon Jovi weren’t writing enough songs about ennui and it was a brilliant place to share opinions and get excited…hope that we get the same buzz going this time.
