I hated Father of the Bride when it first came out and while I eventually came to like it, it is definitely NOT their best album. Too many bad/ weird songs in that album

I disagree with what they think about Yangs comment. His reply was perfect! Keep It is sooo one sided its ridiculous.

Are these people for real? I didn’t know people were such self pitying losers these days. Our society is doomed if people don’t stop calling themselves victims when they are among the most lucky people to live in this country in this year.
