So, I just had the pleasure of reading a thread about AIC, then somehow that shit got all twisted into how it sucks Layne passed away and all but the new guy is better!!! WTF!? FUCK NO! But wait "I'm just old and won't give the new guy a chance"
I really hate the younger kiddies some days. How in the fuck can you say that a man who mimics the maker is better? Anyone who believes this is a fucktard....sorry.
This will never be done better....EVER, by anyone.

But why do either of them *have* to be "better" anyway? It's a stupid argument all together. Layne is dead, end of story. Naturally someone "different" was going to take his place, and for all intents and purposes it really fucking works.
Also, FWIW, I don't think Will is mimicking Layne, I just think they chose a guy who matches the band, and since the band's sound is the same, a similar voice is still going to fit
I do think Will has a fucking fantastic voice though, and absolutely satisfies the AIC vibe for me. Big big shoes to fill, and he does it with ease.
Case in motherfucking point:
I mean... shit.
