  • Torontonian dont really know much about him myself, but that album highly impressed me!
    December 17 10:26 PM
  • Torontonian aight, was just curious as you seem to dig a lot of classic rock type of stuff. Here's a link of one his concerts if you're interested. Its pretty damn long, but you can just listen to any song off there to see if its your thing. Cheers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06XvIxBJasA
    December 17 10:22 PM
  • Torontonian do you dig eric clapton*
    December 17 10:16 PM
  • ArsMoriendi http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=153742 lol
    December 13 07:21 PM
  • adr the only song i've heard by them is Nil Recurring from the ep with Fripp on it and i rly like it, so yeah i'll check 'em in near future i hope, kinda busy with exams at this time of the year and i've already have some stuff to check before that. Also giving " Virtual XI" the same rating as "Powerslave", da **** dude? o_O
    December 11 05:42 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Did you check Zoot Allures? or recheck One Size Fits All yet?
    December 9 07:19 PM
  • facupm my dad had some vynils and pink floyd cd's, so he made me listen to them since i was pretty young, and i love it at this point
    December 8 10:28 AM
  • Inveigh word check Swans out if you're into early to mid 90s Neurosis, they were definitely a huge influence. knowing your tastes it might be best for you to start with Swans at their newer material, but their 80s stuff is classic and all their material is pretty good.
    December 3 09:34 PM
  • ArsMoriendi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZohG7JAPZag :)
    December 3 03:02 PM
  • Rowan5215 Haven't listened to it in probably over a year so hard to say
    December 2 09:35 PM
  • Inveigh I'm sure they did, to a certain extent. I think Swans were a bigger influence. What do you think?
    December 2 08:56 PM
  • danielcardoso Alright then.
    December 2 05:20 PM
  • danielcardoso Would you enjoy writing a review for Duran Duran's greatest hits album, "Greatest"? I submitted it for Judio's Review a Random Album Game, but my guy never reviewed it. Would you be up for it?
    December 2 04:47 PM
  • danielcardoso Hey man, do you dig Duran Duran?
    December 1 05:33 PM
  • Artuma uhhh well it's basically indie rock mixed with chamber music (the newest one leans more towards the sound of lcd soundsystem tho). check the song 'haiti' if you wanna get a glimpse of their older sound
    December 1 04:56 PM
  • manosg I guess people tend to comment mostly on the biggest names when it comes to more classic stuff. Same happens with Rainbow, Gallagher, Santana, etc. What's your take?
    December 1 04:23 AM
  • Inveigh Yeah probably, although Maiden's self titled and Powerslave are both close
    November 30 09:51 PM
  • Sabrutin Yeah, we're not in a brilliant phase right now but as far as monuments and nature go Italy is definitely a fantastic place to visit. I would like more variety in the music sold in shops though, hahaha I have to use Internet for a lot of stuff.
    November 29 05:07 PM
  • Sabrutin I'm from Lombardy, I live in a small town near Milan.
    November 29 03:51 PM
  • manosg That's fine dude. If you decide to recheck them, I'd suggest you to begin with their earlier material which is more speed than power metal. First four albums would do the trick ;)
    November 29 11:10 AM
  • manosg Hey Danny, ever checked anything by Blind Guardian?
    November 29 08:20 AM
  • facupm ah i was figurin around 21 or 22 for you haha. Im 19
    November 28 06:34 PM
  • facupm danny im just curious how old are you?
    November 28 06:30 PM
  • facupm dude most of the songs are true jams: futureal is a nice opener, lightning rules, clansman is epic, when two worlds collide is a piece of mind worthy song, dont look to the eyes of a stranger is amazing (even if its kinda repetitive at a certain point) especially the multiple solo part man i love that album
    November 28 04:43 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass https://m.soundcloud.com/meus1/interlude-1 check my song bro, jammed out with my buddy.
    November 27 03:29 PM
  • JamieTwort Probably but I don't really think of early Opeth as "prog metal" tbh.
    November 27 01:17 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Nowadays definitely
    November 27 11:21 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Agreed. Their best might not be THE best, but it's definitely up there as well.
    November 26 10:14 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Meh. I don't care for it.
    November 26 09:51 PM
  • facupm yeah i prefer virtual XI to every album that came after it x factor and matter of life and death is pretty hard though
    November 26 01:17 PM
  • facupm agreed hard! sign of the cross is one of their best songs if you ask mein my opinion though, virtual XI is even more underrated than x factor and its a better album overall
    November 26 12:57 PM
  • Onirium Hmm... I'm not the biggest Maiden fan, so there are a couple of their albums that I've never jammed, but I'd say I'm familiar with everything except their 90s albums
    November 23 10:26 PM
  • ArsMoriendi If you want a Zappa rec that's closer to hard rock, try Zoot Allures.
    November 23 09:19 PM
  • ArsMoriendi I don't think you'd be a Ween fan though. Zappa on the other hand :P
    November 23 09:13 PM
  • ArsMoriendi You just figured that out? lol it's always been Boognish (Ween's cult symbol) an yeah, they're like my 3rd favorite band.
    November 23 09:03 PM
  • JamieTwort Their first 2 for sure. Too Fast For Love is my favourite.
    November 23 12:07 PM
  • facupm haha no im not really, i love their first 2 though, the rest are miss or hit if you ask me
    November 23 11:52 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Okay let's discuss this in the OSFA thread.
    November 22 10:46 PM
  • ArsMoriendi So you're a fan? :)
    November 22 10:41 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Some Zappa is full on jazz-fusion actually.
    November 22 10:33 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Awesome! :)
    November 22 10:22 PM
  • Titan agreed!
    November 22 05:43 PM
  • Titan i just think it comes down to the consistency in the songwriting. even though i don't absolutely love maiden's newer material, i find it to be superior to priests. don't get me wrong danny, i love judas priest too, it's just that maiden has always been one of my favorites. i used to stare at their artwork while i listened to the records as a kid and young man. still love it to this day.
    November 22 05:31 PM
  • Sabrutin Yes I completely agree with you. Things aren't just black or white, good or bad. The post-PL material might not have masterpieces, but that doesn't mean that it's necessarily awful. Personally, I love "Some People Fly", for example.
    November 21 02:25 PM
  • ArsMoriendi First few seconds? Of Inca Roads?
    November 21 02:20 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 That can only be a good thing
    November 21 07:32 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Awesome, tell me how you like it. If anything we can discuss it in the OSFA thread! :)
    November 20 11:37 PM
  • OmairSh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evMMGGcDoSA, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tH6D6anoSo
    November 20 10:12 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Eh, I prefer Death by a long shot. Altars of Madness is amazing, though.
    November 19 07:39 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Finally lol
    November 19 07:03 PM
  • ArsMoriendi So you still haven't checked OSFA have you? :\
    November 19 05:51 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I'm assuming you wanna crack page 100 on SWoD when it gets to that point?
    November 19 05:41 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie lol you don't have to be that serious, I hope this is just your sense of humor talking
    November 19 04:56 PM
  • Jacquibim 3.5 means great remember
    November 18 06:25 PM
  • Jacquibim What makes you say that :)
    November 18 06:17 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 He's an amazing drummer, full of energy and no one blast beats faster. I prefer him to Reinert and Hoglan because of that.
    November 18 05:07 PM
  • manosg That's good to know man.
    November 18 12:25 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Yeah they're definitely my fave
    November 18 07:15 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Agreed. All the Vincent albums rule.
    November 17 10:11 PM
  • JamieTwort I think Purple always seemed a bit restrained in the studio. They were at their best in a live setting where they could be more energetic and stretch out a bit (or in some cases a lot), so yeah I agree.
    November 17 01:05 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey man what's up, I would say Sabbath because Iommi's playing influenced me the most and along with Angus Young, he was directly responsible for forcing me to pick up the electric guitar in the first place.
    November 17 11:00 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Deep Purple enters the same realm as ACDC for me - good rock, but nothing I've really been blown away by. I've listened to Stormbringer, Machine Head and Made in Japan, all of which were good but didn't have much of a lasting effect on me
    November 17 09:10 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 Probably around 3rd/4th tbh
    November 17 08:05 AM
  • Mythodea Yup, I couldn't agree more with you. DP are music 101 and it's a shame they're so underrated in this site. One would think their appeal here would be tremendous, as other, less significant bands are in the spotlight. I like DP a lot, saw them live three years ago and was thrilled. Vocals weren't that strong, but drums and keyboards were excellent. After '87 their qality takes some steps down and I think they only lived up to our expectations again with last year's Now What?
    November 17 02:43 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Machine Head and Fireball were major gateway albums for me in getting into hard rock and metal. I haven't listened to them in years, I've forgotten to rate a lot of 60's and 70's stuff I used to listen to on here.
    November 16 07:43 PM
  • TalonsOfFire ofc, machine head is one of the first cd's I've ever owned
    November 16 07:28 PM
  • manosg I think I had read about them in a magazine (probably Metal Hammer) and then a friend of mine gave me a greatest hits cassette. I liked the greatest hits and then I went and bought Paranoid which was like the best thing ever back then. How about you?
    November 16 12:36 PM
  • wtferrothorn Wow, your musical taste is crazy balanced.
    November 16 12:38 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 Yeah I really loved it after being disappointed hearing DT
    November 15 03:29 PM
  • SharkTooth woah, you have a lot of soundoffs
    November 15 12:13 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Vincent's vocals were the biggest change. They got deeper with every album. Personally I prefer the raspier tone he had on Altars, but the vocals on Blessed and Covenant are great too. Domination not so much, although the riffs make up for it.
    November 15 07:48 AM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Altars for me deserves the attention it gets. They didn't make another album like that in terms of the raw energy and thrashiness. Blessed is almost sludgy/doomy in places and I dig that a lot, same with Covenant. The less said about domination the better. My favourites might have to ve the three with Steve Tucker though. Gateways is obscenely underrated and formulas is possibly the best album ever bro
    November 15 06:16 AM
  • facupm oh yes he's very good, dont look for something on the dickinson vein thoughi know i have an unusual opinion regarding this, but as far as im concerned, virtual XI is the best album since the 80's, and a excellent one on its own... never understood why people hate it so bad, bruce fanboyism i guess
    November 13 09:20 PM
  • facupm danny have you checked blaze maiden era??
    November 13 08:29 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Sabbath, Venom, Celtic Frost, Slayer and Angel Witch are the ones that come to mind
    November 13 08:37 AM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Morbid Angel absolutely slay!
    November 13 03:31 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges MA's first 4 were their best, Death's final 4 were their best.
    November 12 08:36 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Especially considering Chuck's vocals on Symbolic and TSOP. Love 'em both, though.
    November 12 08:11 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Maybe vocals.
    November 12 07:48 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Definitely. They have so many awesome riffs
    November 12 03:13 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Same goes for Morbid Angel with Death
    November 12 07:22 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie yep
    November 11 06:55 PM
  • OmairSh There are still 8 comments dude
    November 11 06:44 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 MoR will get there not too long after
    November 11 06:41 PM
  • OmairSh Haha well then tell Nero to write all the comments until we reach page 100!
    November 11 06:40 PM
  • Mythodea My sister would listen to Bon Jovi during high school so I followed. Don't jam them anymore but, hey, nostalgia. As for Whitesnake, when I was in highschool I wanted to find music similar to Scorpions, whom I adored more than the world back then. And I stuck with them for some time...
    November 11 06:38 PM
  • Mythodea Well, not completely my cup of tea. I don't like the vocals for the most part and that gets me off. I should love the genre, given its small relation with progressive metal, but I just can't stand the screaming, cut words spit out. But, on the other hand, I like some thrash metal bands a lot and I don't mind occasionally jamming smoe records. Though, there's where it ends.
    November 11 06:27 PM
  • Mythodea Meh, I believe it's going to be an average kind of rating, nothing spectacular. Just what you would expect from a not-that-much of a fan that I am. I really like some records, but I think I'd give most albums a 3-3.5 with some exceptions for 4's and 2.5's.
    November 11 05:16 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Ok. You know, one thing I have observed about you Danny is that you do engage in random conversations with other users in a daily basis, which is not a very common sight. But it is a good thing, talking, discussing. If you ever wanna ask me anything about music or anything else in particular, feel free to do so. I love discussions.
    November 11 04:21 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Because I don't view Priest as a band who did many drugs back in their early days.
    November 11 04:02 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie I know that but why do you think Priest where high when they recorded that specific record ? Is it because of the album's spacey atmosphere and the fact that, it's one of their best ?
    November 11 04:01 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Now, in to the topic, why do you think the chances of Priest recording Sad Wings under drugs are high ?
    November 11 03:51 PM
  • Mythodea I was ready to ask you what kind of a question was that, but I realized I had no JP album rated. Thus, I have, at times I used to listen a lot. But I chose individual songs, so I don't believe I should hastily rate an album.
    November 11 03:25 PM
  • OmairSh I have a lot of respect for the teaching profession since it's a very difficult one. But if you're not comfortable with something then it's good to move on from it eventually I guess. Which grades are you teaching?
    November 11 12:54 PM
  • OmairSh Oh wow that's cool. Respect to you professor :-D. Sucks about the bad experience though, yeah I remember how some kids were douchebags when I was younger as well. Hopefully your next experience is better. Is teaching what you want to do in the long term?
    November 11 12:42 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Definitely.
    November 11 10:35 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie hahaha okay man, I thought you were talking about the possibilities of Maiden being under drugs when they recorded No Prayer, to which I answered that it wasn't drugs, imo the band had reached the limits of their creativity with Seventh Son.
    November 10 07:29 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie "Anyway, I wonder how many drugs these guys had in their blood when they did this." You were talking about Iron Maiden having recorded No Prayer, correct ?
    November 10 07:11 PM
  • Mythodea Yeah, I like most of Maiden's work, but Killers sounds a bit flat to me. I rarely go back to Kllers and that's for a few songs only.
    November 10 11:42 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges YES A DANNYBOY SOUNDOFF
    November 9 06:19 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Probably because Maiden are just a bigger band, and even a lot of Priest fans usually dig Painkiller or British Steel more
    November 9 06:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges NPFtD is just bad imo. But yeah, they do have some jams.
    November 8 10:54 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Agreed. T/t is one of my favorite Maiden tunes of all time (minus the lyrics).
    November 8 10:37 PM
  • OmairSh All the best with all the changes man, hope those goes well. What are you teaching? Same old same old at my end, nothing really interesting to speak of :P
    November 8 01:06 PM
  • OmairSh How's life?
    November 6 12:20 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 Stained Class beats any Maiden aside from Powerslave for me. As for post-SC material I prob prefer SfV to Piece of Mind, but other than that yeah 80s Maiden is better than anything after SC.
    November 6 08:25 AM
  • manosg Yup, Brave New World Tour 2000. It was the day I loved Maiden tbh. Up until then I wasn't a big fan.
    November 6 02:51 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 Agreed. I dont know whether its guitar tone or just playing style, but ive always preferred Priest's guitar playing to Maiden's
    November 5 03:24 PM
  • TheNotrap Indeed. It's my favourite heavy metal band.
    November 5 01:13 PM
  • Necrotica No, I got taken off when I got banned. I have no idea when or if I'm returning to staff at this point
    November 4 03:34 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 Powerslave is pretty close
    November 3 07:37 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Can't argue with that. I just prefer Dickinson's stuff. It's def in my top 5, though.
    November 3 07:24 PM
  • RunOfTheMill I've grown to like it a lot. It's not a "fun" listen, but really quite draining... Not something I'd jam in its entirety often, but I love how some songs drag with a simple, hypnotic riff or bass line. Just the incredibly heavy distortion, the droning vocals and guitars... It's like hearing an old horror story about drugs, mental illness, and death.
    October 30 03:59 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Hey danny, I was wondering what your opinion on Alice in Chains' s/t. I think you've talked about it a while back, has anything changed?
    October 29 07:58 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Yes. For sure. I thought it was great.
    October 19 10:47 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Definitely. Have you seen No Country for Old Men? :)
    October 19 10:15 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Have you checked One Size Fits All yet? D:
    October 15 03:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hook? RIP Robin Williams.
    October 8 09:17 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges To be entirely honest, the only part of T3 that I liked was when Kristanna Loken was walking naked on the street, haha.
    October 8 08:04 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Damn dude, sorry to hear that. Just glad to see you're still alive and breathing, haha.
    October 6 11:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Definitely. I haven't seen you around these parts in a while. How are you feeling, man?
    October 6 09:44 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Johnny Depp's okay, but every one of his roles nowadays are essentially just Jack Sparrow, Gary Oldman dies too much in his movies, and Harrison Ford was my childhood, so yeah.
    October 5 09:50 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Miss ya, man.
    September 23 10:32 PM
  • manosg OK man, you have my best wishes.
    September 9 03:05 AM
  • manosg Hey bud. Hope all is well, haven't seen you around much lately.
    September 7 11:53 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Hey danny, how ya been? Hehe this AiC kick you got me into hasn't stopped for months!
    August 29 09:09 PM
  • ArsMoriendi So, have you jammed One Size Fits All yet?
    August 29 08:26 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Burton gets redundant after awhile. Edward Scissorhands is a classic though.
    August 29 06:13 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Don't really love Nolan or Scott's movie, they just really aren't my thing. Speilberg obviously makes a ton of amazing movies, so yeah he's great. Scorcese is brilliant.
    August 29 12:27 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Really? The Cohen Brothers are amazing. They did Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men, The new True Grit, and Inside Llewyn Davis. I recommend all 5 of those by the way. Especially The Big Lebowski.
    August 28 04:25 PM
  • ArsMoriendi The Cohen Brothers, Quinten Tarantino, Johnathan Dayton/Valarie Faris.
    August 28 09:10 AM

    August 15 11:20 PM

    August 9 12:05 AM
  • fallenbird Nice, I'm doing great. Just got back from a road trip where I listened to led Zeppelin the entire way. Good times.

  • BMDrummer where you been?
    July 25 07:38 PM
  • OmairSh Continuing where we left off. "Too many weapons, too much corporate power worldwide" Yeah and America is at the top of everything, especially terrorism. "Helping" countries that need freedom by sending in their troops or weapons in order to start a war.
    July 19 06:09 PM
  • OmairSh Well the drone attacks are in the northern region and far away from where I used to live (I'm currently in Canada), but yeah it's extremely frustrating and saddening. Just like what Israel is doing in Palestine now

  • ExplosiveOranges Massachusetts. It ain't terrible, but it could be better.
    July 3 07:55 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, as terrible as Obamer (my affectionate name for him) and Georgie were, the negative results of a guy like Rick Perry or Rick Santorum becoming President would be far more catastrophic.
    July 3 04:31 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Honestly, I don't give a s*** who wins. If we had a Republican majority, though, there would be global-scale issues. More wars in the Middle-East, more restrictions on privacy, more violations of the Constitution (minus the 2nd amendment, of course). You get the idea.
    July 3 04:22 PM
  • Futures Of course! Huge fan of the game. Just sad to see it end after so much promise. Howard is god. Looking forward to the future of the US already!

    July 1 03:26 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges My two major subjects right now are World Languages and World History, so I'm definitely sure I can take a few pointers from you, lol. Till then, I wish you luck in your literary endeavors, and whatever team you hope wins the World Cup. Peace out, mate.
    June 30 10:15 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I'm still studying Spanish, but I'm planning to try out German or French afterwards. I would like to try a more challenging language (Japanese, Arabic), but I wanna start out small.
    June 30 09:50 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I've been watching a ton of movies, listening to a bunch of new music, and I've been writing quite a lot lately. Also, I finally picked up my trumpet the other day, and I've been trying to get back into the habit of practicing.
    June 30 09:27 PM

    June 29 05:42 PM

  • Jacquibim where have YOU been?!!?
    June 20 03:16 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Danny, I just read your soundoff for Presence and it made me really sad. "" For Your Life", "Candy Store Rock" and "Hots for Nowhere" just flat-out suck." HOW? "For Your Life" is my favorite Led Zeppelin song... and the other 2 are great as well.

  • ExplosiveOranges Dude, I found Orchid today in a music store for $7.

  • LepreCon 'Sup, brah, I'm good, nearly through with my year in Japan so I'll be home for the Summer soon, gonna miss travelling, would have thought Ireland would be in better shape after two years away but what can you do? How's life?

  • ExplosiveOranges The thing is, I DON'T hate America. I hate what it's turned into since 9/11. Corruption has become far more rampant, more and more rights are being ignored, politicians are too busy bickering about imaginary terrorists and Obamacare to give two s***s about any actual domestic issues, and society has degraded so much over the past two decades. Lady Liberty has turned into a prostitute with a coke addiction, and one day we're going to find her corpse in a dumpster.

  • ExplosiveOranges All things must come to an end at some point. Babylon fell. Persia fell. Rome fell. The Ottomans fell. The USSR fell. And with the track record we have so far, believe me, it won't be long until we're just "The States of America".
    June 11 10:01 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks, dude. Summer Vacation's around the corner, and I'm gonna sort some s*** out this time.
    June 10 09:19 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Still just a student, lol. Hoping to get into some sort of scientific or historical line of work.
    June 10 03:48 PM
  • Inveigh I dig Quadrophenia and Tommy too, but i find it hard to get into their first few albums (outside of a couple songs on each). i think those two albums along with Who's Next are up there with most other rock bands' top 3 records
    June 9 10:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Never got a chance to thank you for the compliment, dude. I just express my opinion the way it is, and am almost always open to suggestions/criticism. Hell, you helped me get into Opeth and Queensryche's underrated albums.
    June 9 08:51 PM
  • manosg Sure man but that's not bad. It sure helps conversations and seeing things from a different perspective.
    June 9 07:11 AM
  • Inveigh true, yeah didn't mean to overly knock the Beatles, you're right about their widespread influence. they just don't fit into my personal enjoyment factor nearly as much as the Stones do.
    June 8 09:58 AM
  • Rowan5215 Sabbath certainly made riffage popular that's for sure
    June 8 03:45 AM
  • Rowan5215 True but influence isn't everything dude, there aren't many bands as metal-oriented as Sabbath that I can dig
    June 8 03:31 AM
  • Rowan5215 Yeah dude their first few albums are great even to my non-metal tastes ;)
    June 8 03:25 AM
  • scottpilgrim10 I'll definitely keep listening to their discography probably in chronological order. I might be biased to the Soft Parade though since it has my old favorite doors song Touch me.
    June 8 02:18 AM
  • scottpilgrim10 I really enjoyed both the doors and Strange Days. the doors is a 4-4.5 for me with some incredible songs like Light my Fire and Alabama Whiskey but it also has some average songs like twentieth century fox and Back door man, but the good songs are really really good. Strange Days I definitely liked more and is a 4.5 for me ATM (it could turn into a 5 in the future maybe) I love it's dark and zany atmosphere when compared to the doors, and it even has my favorite doors song When the Music's Over.

  • beefshoes As far as mainstream American politics go, I don't really see much value in either of the two parties. They're both predominately Neo-liberal to the core, and many of the Dems like Clinton are just as Neo-conservative in their foreign policy stances as the McCains and the Bushes.
    June 8 12:54 AM
  • beefshoes I feel the exact same way. Plus I feel like the main reason as to why so many teachers get their MAs in education is for the pay increase. That sounds really cool. I'd try to stick with it, especially if you can get into a PhD program that provides stipends. Being a prof/researcher is my dream job.
    June 8 12:51 AM
  • beefshoes Oh wait nvm, you said history. American history?
    June 8 12:27 AM
  • beefshoes Wow. That's exactly what I'm on the path to doing. I'm going to start my first observational period this fall along with the PRAXIS. As of now, I think I'm going to just focus on the GRE and try to get into a decent MA program for philosophy after I graduate. Are you doing an MA for education?
    June 8 12:24 AM
  • Verm Was a show of the cirque du soleil, both bands rule but the stones have lot of good s***
    June 7 06:27 PM
  • Atari tbh i haven't even heard exile on mainstream yet lol. i definitely won't claim to be an expert on the band, but all the albums I have heard are pretty great
    June 7 06:00 PM
  • Verm Remember when I was in las vegas, there was a beatle show and was great, but people who push it too far almost ruin that
    June 7 05:58 PM
  • Atari Personally, i think Brian Jones is one of the most underrated members of the Rolling Stones. you may already know, but he was originally the leader of the band but died at 27 when he was having differences with the band. There are some conspiracies it could have even been murder it's some crazy s*** man quite the suspicious death. Anyways, I feel like Jones added some extra charm to albums like satanic majesties request and between the buttons (he was a multi-instrumentalist)
    June 7 05:50 PM
  • Verm Love and respect the beatles but some obsessive fans of that band are annoying as hell, love the stones fella
    June 7 05:25 PM
  • Inveigh haha yeah definitely more manly, and just more interesting in general from both a musical and rock history perspective
    June 7 02:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Just got Operation: Mindcrime on CD today. \m/
    June 7 02:20 PM
  • Inveigh You're definitely not alone there, I'd take them over the Beatles 10 times out of 10. Totally agree on Keith and Ron by the way, even in mainstream guitar pubs (i.e. guitar world or whatever) I don't think they get the credit they deserve. great understanding of how to craft a lick/riff and songs in general
    June 7 11:46 AM
  • NeroCorleone80 KC had a lot of line-up changes during that time too, so that may explain why the 69-74 run was so diverse.
    June 7 06:35 AM
  • manosg Yeah, he's not very special and he certainly was a product of his time. On the other hand, he did fit the overall GnR style perfectly and had a few great moments. I think the trick is to approach Slash by focusing more on the music and less on his persona and on the fact that there are people out there who consider him the best ever so you can enjoy the music for what it really is.
    June 7 02:31 AM
  • SitarHero I don't have much of an opinion of the Who. Don't like them enough to listen for extended periods of time. I think the only album I've heard in its entirety is Who's Next.
    June 7 02:11 AM
  • SitarHero I've got nothing against the Stones honestly, but I think it's folly to compare them to the Beatles. Different beasts, but despite the fact that the Beatles were only around for about 10 years, I think they were far more inventive and creative than the Stones.
    June 7 02:03 AM
  • SitarHero Beatles pwn the Stones.
    June 7 01:37 AM
  • Atari that's better, although i do wish you dug it a little more. can't complain with a 4 though! You might dig aftermath too but i know you said you're done with your stones journey for now haha. 'mother's little helper' is a fantastic song
    June 6 07:28 PM
  • Atari no sound off for btb? : (
    June 6 06:52 PM
  • JamieTwort Fair enough. Likewise on the opinion/respect part.
    June 6 06:15 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 No Exit is my fave although PS comes close. Alder can overdo it at times agreed, but its only really on No Exit
    June 6 05:19 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 They had a more metallic vibe than Queensryche too, but their songwriting wasnt quiet as strong
    June 6 04:50 PM
