Sloan waning etc.
>Take the Spice Girls (sorry to mention them everyone) for instance.
marketing created a craze. If people just bought their cd and went to
shows and thought they sang good music, they wouldnt be as big as they
now. Without craze, bands don't make it. Without a band being a few
favorite, there's no craze. I think this definately has an impact on a
I think that if Sloan made it, like the Spice Girls, you would be
criticizing them for a whole new bunch of reasons.
Is your point that, due to the amount of time that has elapsed between OCTA
and the new Sloan album (a year and a half) they are basically out of the
running, at least in your books? Had they released an album a year after
their last one, say last July, would they still be one of your favorites?
No band does that, certainly not any band that has to go out on the road
and tour for more than the usual few weeks across the country.
Maybe you're just tired of the band. There's nothing wrong with that. I
don't think that the majority of the people out there feel the same way
about this time-lapse situation as you do, and they will probably show that
when the album comes out early next year.
Plus, believe it or not, Sloan probably know what they're doing. It's not
like they're a bunch of bumbling idiots who happen to stumble into
fortunate situations. I'm sure that there are sound reasons, probably
professional and personal, behind everything that they do.
