There is no easy way to say it so I am just going to say it...
I am not happy with the WSP sound since Jimmy joined. I have given him plenty of chances and I think he is an amazing talent but I just don't enjoy WSP like I used to and his sound is the reason. I don't hear an honest tune with a lingering lead anymore. I hear an erratic machine gun style of lead. I am going to see them next week but it might be time for me to take a break from WSP if I am disappointed in another show.

I am wondering how many others feel the same way.

I respect your thoughts, but you ask what others think? I actually enjoy panic more than ever with Jimmy! Different for everybody i guess but i think he took them to another level. I am def not a fan of the shredding but overall i think they sound great. I think he does a great job of keeping Mikey's "main" melody licks and balancing that with his own ideas and direction. I also like how he holds notes into the feedback like mickey would do. Again, same team, i respect your opinion, and i really like jimmy. I think the boys have been bringing it lately. on another note, does anyone think that Jo Jo has been slipping lately? whats up with that? Much Love!!!
