I recently just got back Keasbey Nights and i fell back in love with these guys. Of course after tom left they were never the same but still made some decent tunes. Discuss

Keasbey Nights is an incredible album, though there are a few mediocre songs on it. Walking Away is just okay. Giving Up, Giving In is good, but it doesn't fit in at all. 9mm and a Three Piece Suit never did much for me. Kristina should not have even been on the album.

Also, I feel that his obsession with repeating verses and making the second half of the songs straight up punk worsened the album for me. For example, Supernothing is incredible until the second half, which ruins the mood and emotion of the song.

Besides that, it's great, and saved ska and in some ways punk music. The Streetlight remake was a waste though. As for post-Tom Catch, Alone In a Crowd is very good, featuring current Streetlighter Mike Soprano. That album still gets somewhat regular rotation from me. The two most recent albums sucked hard.

And does anyone get Alternative Press? They did a small feature on Keasbey Nights in the Sept. 2008 issue. If anyone has it, could they please scan it, or at least type up the article please?

Supernothing is kind of tongue-in-cheek though, innit?

Yeah, I guess. Tomas wrote short descriptions of the songs on Smiles For Macavity and Rules of the Game in the liner notes for those albums, and he wrote next to Supernothing, "The epic parody" or something like that

I never really got what he meant by that though...making fun of superheroes, or saying that he's a superhero, or what?

And it's not that I don't enjoy the songs I mentioned above. I don't skip a single track on that album ever. I was just pointing out the weak spots, particularly Kristina. That song's like a middle-school pop song. The solos aren't even that good either

I thought he was just making fun of songs that are all self-pitying and stuff.
I almost posted the liner notes to Smiles when I said that about Supernothing. Just because it's funny.
