I never could get into Samiam. Way too melodic and polished sounding, and I never really got why they were grouped in with the "second wave" of emo alongside SDRE and Mineral.

Awesome, Santos - I'm in.

Seriously, Walter Schreifels is the man. Dude has produced some amazing albums, and is a really solid, solid dude. But, why in the hell would I want to hear an acoustic version of Warzone, Sick of it All or Gorilla Biscuits songs is beyond me. Maybe playing it as a joke between sets is Ok, but to pay and hear an acoustic version of Start Today is just plain retarded.

Whoa, Shreifels was in Sick of It All? Did not know that.

i got into them when they opened for bad religion in 94 at roseland. they were always good for a very melodic punk song.

is there anyone original in the band besides the lead singer? everyone else looks like theyre in their 20s.

"is there anyone original in the band besides the lead singer? everyone else looks like theyre in their 20s."

I dunno, but replace "in their 20s" with "offensive linemen" and you got Suicidal Tendencies now.

Quicksand will always be where it's at for me.

Moondog, son.

All that matters is the singer is the same. I mean who cares if they replace a guitarist, or ... o.m.g. a bassist. Seriously, would it make a difference? Didn't think so.
