@marijolee, i think black mamba is good, but so many people like that song like it's the best song they made. i can stand it, but i won't skip it. it's a good listen, but they have so many better songs.
@sirdubby, I was the same way with Everything We Had... It was actually the first song I heard by The Academy Is... and it was a major turn off... but after I listened to it, I realized it's a great song. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. I think Black Mamba is plain awful.
I personally think that it's an amazing song, with the large chorus of people saying, the violins and such in the background, etc. I think that it probably took a lot of effort to record and I think it's one of their best songs. I adore the way it was done immensely.
this album is kick ass. all of you who hated it are fuckin dumb cuz this album doesnt sound like anything anyone has ever done. its genius and so are the lyrics. too bad there new album is totally opposite of this. its all about pop. it makes me mad how they changed to sound just like all the other pop punk/rock bands. :(
