I don’t know why but a lot of friends think I should be a Bullet For My Valentine fan. I like metal but I don’t listen to it that much. Maybe it’s because I like Metallica. That’s the way they try to sell me on it…they claim BFMV is this generation’s Metallica. I guess they’re right if they mean to say that they’re an emo version of Metallica. I guess it could be worse. They could be an American Idol vesion of Metallica.
The band actually has moments. At times I found their b-sides and bonus tracks more enjoyable than the actual album tracks. Especially the acoustic versions of their songs and the covers. Check out their version of Robert Tepper’s No Easy Way Out (theme song from Rocky 4) or Metallica’s Creeping Death.
