|Ties' Favorite Musical Moments|
I've been meaning to make one of these lists for a while. Not fully comprehensive obviously but a rgood collection of some of my favorite moments in music.
Ties That Bind (0:00-0:33): Hearing the intro to this song for the first time was the
moment I truly started my musical journey, hence the username. The riff at 0:22
will always be one of my favorites.
Blackbird (3:21-3:58): The transition to the bridge is one of the most beautiful
guitar passages I've ever heard, and to me it's just about as moving as the solo
itself (which would've been the obvious pick, hence why I didn't put it).
All Hope Is Gone (2:12-3:28): Dynamic passages like this are what I want to see
more of on their next album. Clean guitar trades off with one of Tremonti's most
massive riffs yet while Myles' background vocals help build the tension. This leads
into the best guitar solo on the album.
Judgement (1:55-2:24): "You burn it all away, you burn it all away"
We're Here Because We're Here
A Simple Mistake (4:17-5:57): Such a great buildup.
*Fin (3:45-4:33): You know the part. "Patron saint, are we all lost like you"
Shadows Between the Sky
Shadows Between the Sky (1:53-end): Phenomenal guitar solo from what is easily
my favorite Buckethead song.
Lebrontron (1:54-2:20): One of the coolest riffs in his catalog.
Beyond the Knowing (1:53-end): Jaw-dropping acoustic work.
Wonder What's Next
Family System (0:20-0:50): The opening riff to this song is easily my favorite
moment from the band.
Images and Words
Learning To Live (10:02-end): Even though I don't listen to the band that much
anymore, the outro to this song still impresses me even after hearing it as much as
Black Clouds & Silver Linings
Best of Times (9:58-end): The amazing solo that closes out the song.
Recreation Day (2:52-3:59): A melodic piano-driven bridge leads into an impressive
Still Remains (2:34-5:17): Even though Fates Warning isn't usually prone to doing
lengthy instrumental sections like most prog metal bands, this shows that when
they do, they can pull it off with the best of them.
Some Nights (3:47-end): A great outro to one of the best popular songs that I've
heard in a long time. I wish this section went on longer since the guitarwork in this
part is really enjoyable.
Need (3:22-end): An emotional solo, followed by a simple but effective riff that
repeats for the remainder of the outro, which also features effective background
vocals by vocalist Pete Stewart.
Overdose (3:43-4:26): The most intense moment in the band's catalog.
Better (3:00-3:45): A dramatic guitar solo leads into J Loren's impassioned vocals.
"You keep on coming over me, I keep crying over you!"
Legend of the Black Shawarma
Project 100 (5:30-7:38): One of the most epic buildups I've ever heard.
Brave New World
The Nomad (4:52-7:48): Lots of great Maiden moments to choose from; I decided
to go with this epic interlude.
Today Is the Day
The Love of God (2:08-2:48): A gorgeous bridge that features an understated
acoustic guitar solo, violin, piano, and well-implemented female vocals. Lincoln
Brewster is by far the most talented artist in CCM right now, and it's not just his
shredding ability, but moments like this that prove that.
I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone
To the Skies From A Hillside (0:51-1:22): This riff is especially effective when I listen
to the album as a whole since it's so much heavier than everything that came
Massive Bereavement (5:24-5:54): Massive riff following a tremendous buildup.
The Leper Affinity (3:14-3:35): Cool little guitar riff and the band shows how in-
sync they are by neatly pausing the music for effect and then picking up right after
as if nothing happened. *description stolen from pwalcher's list
Windowpane (4:37-5:49): Powerful guitar solo.
Blackest Eyes (0:00-0:52): Perfect intro to the song and album.
Arriving Somewhere But Not Here (6:07-8:07): The climax to my favorite Porcupine
Fear of a Blank Planet
Anesthetize (11:05-11:23): The heavy climax that the song had been building to
for 11 minutes.
Out of Myself
Loose Heart (3:52-end): "Raise me up, don't let me fall"
Second Life Syndrome
Second Life Syndrome (3:13-3:26): This lead riff only appears twice in this massive
16-minute epic but is nonetheless one of its most memorable parts. There are so
many moments from this song that could've made it here, so I just picked the first
one that came to mind.
Second Life Syndrome
Dance With the Shadow (1:53-2:50): Sometimes I'll just replay this section over
and over and again because of how epic it is.
Rapid Eye Movement
Embryonic (2:16-end): One of the most emotional passages in Riverside's catalog.
|33||Scale the Summit|
Black Hills (6:29-7:06): A barely audible but incredibly emotional bass lick plays
underneath dense riffing. It was so subtle that I didn't even notice it at first but
once I did it became my favorite part of the album.
The Sound of Madness
What a Shame (3:18-3:56): An outstanding vocal performance by Brent Smith
creates the most powerful moment in the band's discography (yes, even better
|35||Third Eye Blind|
Third Eye Blind
Jumper: 2:21-3:25: Even after hearing the rest of the album, this interlude is still
the moment that sticks out to me the most on the album. I think I just really like
interludes though, as this list is proving.
Like Moths to Flame (3:13-end) The trifecta of Thrice moments begins with this
song's dramatic outro...
Of Dust and Nations (0:00-1:09): continues with this song's intro...
Stand and Feel Your Worth (4:26-end): and concludes with this song's climax. This
is one of my favorite 3-song stretches of any album.
10,000 Days (5:38-8:18): While I'm not a big Tool fan, this section where the main
bassline plays is one of the moments where they live up to the hype for me.
