Still my favourite band of all time, but it's hard for it not to feel like a downer listening to them now knowing that there was a lot turmoil and trauma behind some of the most unique music to come out of the past 20 years.
I love both Ethan and Alice. I don't give a fuck about their personal lives and how shitty they might be as individuals, I only care for their music and hope that they'll keep making some on their distinct paths because they're both talented people.
"Alice has been fucking with ethan for over 10 years and she hasn't photographed anything to show us ??"
Probably one of the dumbest things i have ever read.....So you wait to be abused and then try to get something, just because dumb assholes like you would not believe her.
blaming abstract entities is awesome, because it means that one never has to assume any responsiblity or make any effort for personal growth or change. it's always someone or something else's fault. Always a victim.
So the dude has the same things i have. Grand delusions, paranoid type schizophrenia (or just being paranoid in general) , BPD, ASPD, Bi-Polar Type 2, being extremely manipulative, among other things. And i can see how he behaves, or behaved because i had the same pattern if someone wanted to leave me. I would be so impulsive, projected extreme hatred against them, and even threatened them when i was younger. As in, early 16-20 years, now i am 28.
It can happen if you don't take your meds, and it can even happen when you take them. It all depends on the person and how happy he is with his life, or rather unhappy and fears things that are unknown to him. Of course i can't diagnose him profesionally, but it follows the same pattern and that doesn't make him a victim, but at least i understand him in a way. Still fucked up. But that won't cause me to stop listening to them.
On that topic Crystal Castles aren't going anywhere. They should have ended in top form, when they released their third album. We are in radio silence for 4 years now. No new singles, no new songs or albums. Yeah, you have to give Ethan credit for his music, it's really freaking good, but still. Jupiter Keys left HEALTH because of Alice to compose music for her, and she STILL hasn't managed to choose a style or make an album. I thought this was the end for all three of them, but nope. HEALTH jumped up and said fuck it, we are going to make music with or without him. They still respect the guy. And what wonderful music did they make. VOL.4 and DISCO4 :: PART I, with PART II coming soon surely. The only benefit a band had is HEALTH in all this, with DISCO3 and DISCO3+ after Jupiter. Still, i can't and i won't stop listening to Crystal Castles. Why? Because they are one of the few bands that managed to stay consistent since 2008 for me. I switched almost all genres, but CC remained.
