    Again, Six Degrees is my favorite. The songs just sound good to me. It's what I want from DT. I like I&W as well. Never understood the accolades for Scenes from a Memory. THat one, Train of Thought, and Systematic Chaos are their worst. Awake is OK. Falling into Infinity is better than many give it credit for. Dramatic Turn is OK.

    Dream Theater probably rules in some alternate universe where they never decided to write masturbatory prog metal.

    No additional attention towards Change of Seasons?

    That EP is fucking solid. Granted, half of it isnt their material, but Covers of Elton John, Zepplin, Deep purple, and cannot forget The Big Medley with Kansas, Pink Floyd, Queen, Journey and Genesis all in one song. The transitions from one to another, and the sheer musicianship shown especially on that song, earned my respect.

    Let's not talk about them anymore. Let's talk Danzig. I approve of and openly push every Danzig album except for 5 and 6:66, and 7 is iffy on a couple songs. Otherwise I love the entire Danzig catalog. Any others?

    Shouldve never left the Misfits. Was way better there.

    I love the Misfits as much or more than the next guy. I love Samhain, too. But Danzig is where he truly hit a stride of originality and darkness that few attain. Danzig II is a near perfect album (Killer Wolf being the only downside of the album), and you can't deny the pipes that dude has.

    Agreed, Danzig is definitely my favorite of his projects. Controversially, I have yet to hear a Misfits song I like. Its a pretty large leap from punk to the more rock style and I don't dig much punk.

    The first Danzig album is my fave. Minimal evil rock perfection.

    Never got into The Misfits. They sound like a huge mess.

    Also, Radiohead are amazing. I got into them when they released The Bends and have loved everything they've done since. It's not often that a band can stay inspired and release quality for so long.

    First 4 albums are hid best, and the first 2 are great.

    What's wrong with Killer Wolf - is it the way he sings it that you don't like?

    Yes, and I'm a full on Glenn Danzig fanboy. That's his absolute worst vocal performance. The lyrics are hokey, too.

    I know what you mean but I don't mind the song. I'd pick "Girl" (the second last song) as the worst - nothing special going on there.

    Dude, there is no convincing me that he made a good decision and contributed something constructive to the music scene with Danzig. And "hit a stride of originality and darkness that few attain."????? Get the fuck out with that nonsense.

    His vocal range and style fit The Misfits WAY better than Danzig. Never heard Samhain so I cant say there, but Danzig seems like a joke band to me. Where its so fucking awful and over the top, I cant help but point, laugh, and turn it off. (Or throw something at him for being a complete jerk off but thats a different discussion.)

    I like that song quite a bit, myself.
    Have you ever listened to Danzig? What else sounds like that? There's elements of a lot of styles, but its a beast of its own. And Danzig is dark as fuck. There's often the same vibe as black metal while being nothing sonically close to that.

    And what's jokey about? The first track of the first Danzig is about murder and giving in to fucking Satan.
