Ok, I cannot be the only one who does not like the new album title. Maybe my husband and I are too much alike but when we heard him announce the title back in March at a concert, we both were like, are you serious. And my sister in law was at the same concert as well, and had the same opinion as well. We also did not like the opening of the concert saying "in this ring....etc." I'm thrilled that we have new music to look forward to but the title of the album just disappoints me and honestly if i'm speaking to someone else about music, i'm not gonna want to say, you really want to run out and get the new album from JT called "Punching Bag." I heard the song in concert, and of course it was my first time to hear it, but it didn't strike me as a strong song that would be on the radio. I've heard him sing other things for the first time before it hit radio, and this song just didn't give me a good vibe. But often I find the album title song to be the worst song on the whole album. Haywire was one of my least favorites for example, but it was a decent song. I know I couldn't ever be a song writer or singer, but I just think Josh could have a better title for the CD and I do know good music when I hear it! I may not sound sincere in my post but it is my honest opinions and I only want the best for Josh and I hope the CD does well. Anyone else on this board, just not like the name of the album?
Maybe I was just in the moment of him singing something new and I didn't know a single word and I absolutely hate when that happens. I'm sure i'll receive alot of backlash for this post but I just cannot believe the title of this album. I've spoken to a couple of other people who are fans, and they've had the same opinion as me. I know the song has meaning to Josh. I've been busy lately, so I haven't read any articles, etc, and i'm thinking that he means he's been a punching bag for the music industry and how he remains to be a traditional artist. The title just makes me think "Weak" not "Strong." But one positive is that the album cover is cute though :) I know my little opinion means nothing and the CDS are already made and ready to be shipped out and in storage in a warehouse somewhere.
I would also like if this website would add a contact section or link to someone who can help you. I went to MCN's website which looks more like an advertising website for MCN, asking questions about the Fan Club Party and have never received a reply back. I tried to buy tickets and it said access denied (this was awhile back). The Fan Club conveniently let FCP tickets go on sale the day my membership expired...which hmmmmm was the same day FCP tickets went on sale last year if i'm not mistaken. So I wasn't sure if I was getting the access denied because I hadn't renewed my membership but I was not going to pay $10 to renew a membership if the FCP tickets were sold out already and I could not find any way to officially contact anyone from MCN on this website. Plus I wanted to pay for the party tickets and membership all in one transaction. Since this new website was created it is my main complaint- where is the help? Does no one want to help us? I shouldn't have to scroll thru blog posts to find an email address for help Sorry for my complaints and being negative.
As mentioned before, I cannot wait to get my CD in the mail. I've preordered it from Amazon for $9.99 and Amazon alreadys credits you back money if the CD is cheaper anywhere's else plus they give you a $1 Amazon MP3 credit I think and no taxes. I had an Amazon Gift Card for shopping with eBates making it an even sweeter deal :) The website deal is a good deal but then again, I don't like the words "Punching Bag" and that is why I don't have to have that tshirt.
