First rule of the 5th: Good self-esteem goes a long way around these parts. Cuz I swear folks will cut you down to size...lol.

With that said, Morris Brown was one of the icons. Comparing a new kid on the block to a band program of that high esteem is like asking if Justin Bieber is the new Michael Jackson.

I caught Talladega at the Atlanta Football Classic parade last year and was right impressed with their aggressiveness as a program, especially being so fresh out the box. Problem with comparing them to a lot of the established programs that have paid their dues is that Talladega tends to sound pretty immature still. They did manage to learn SWAC power, which is focused around the power volume of a sound, but thats clearly not as easy to master as folks may believe it is. Loud and proud without technique sounds like :handicap: Southern is a loud and proud band, but there is clear and definited method to the madness. An ole random band can't just blow through the horns like mad men and expect the same level of credit, and sadly, Talladega dances on that line: loud and proud, with not enough skill, technique and method to back them up.

Now even with that said, I swear I don't hear or see similarity between Morris Brown and Talladega even though I would get cussed out by saying that i thought Morris Brown could have stood some serious lessons in execution, because even though I thought they were an amazing program, I felt they could have used a visit or two by Donovan Wells down in Daytona.

Nothing funny about that. Do what you have to do.

But have you heard Morris Brown? I have to disagree with your assessment of the similarities between the Morris Brown and Talladega bands.

It's like comparing apples and slaw: they are nothing alike.

to me they do just a tad.since MOB does not have a Football program but has a band.what i meant by the new morris brown is that could they be untouchable like MOB was back in the day?

After taking another listen I see what you are saying there.and as a Marine, I take great pride in what I have accomplished that's why i got a lil butt hurt,but it I am over it now.its just what Marines do.and i didn't mean any disrespect to anyone on here.just thought I should throw something out there. They are on the up and rising.i say give them a year.and 2014 they are supposedly getting a football team "wikipedia"

They literally sound NOTHING like Morris Brown. And I swear I see ZERO similarities outside of them being HBCU's and having Marching Bands. They are as similar as FAMU and Southern.
