I find the problem in Pain is most of the guitar riffs in the verses are boring and not creative, the riffs are there just for heaviness. Otherwise obviously there's so many cool ideas, synthesizers etc. I listen to Pain a lot when I go out jogging. I'm a fan of metal but likewise this melodic techno style music, and also touching music, it's not one-dimensional to me for sure.
“Creativity has two possibilities. One is that it arises out of your silence, love, understanding, your clarity of vision, your intimate friendliness with existence. Or it may be arising out of your confused mind, it may be arising out of your insanity. Creativity out of anger and ego should be created and disposed. Created as a sense of psychological release, but disposed so that it does not cause burden onto those around you. It is like passing on an illness.” - Osho, 'Silent Creativity.'
