well i thought good songs made a good album, not the production or the sound of the guitars....
It all depends on the album. Good songwriting is only part of the appeal of an album, there are many albums that I only like for certain things like guitars, drums, bass, vocals, or many other things. There are hardly any albums that I like everything on, even Anathema albums.
Maybe you should try some metal-bands who were very popular in the 80's. Great albums man! :Spin:
now you're saying you can like a song because of the guitar. well I'm not too fond of 'Looking Outside Inside' but sure it got a nice guitar, more things, but that doesnt make me liking the song.
Oh and why do you detest Maiden Metallica etc then, Maiden got awesome solo's and metallica got the most bangable riffs.
Good songwriting is everything to make a good album.
Metallica has pretty weak guitars, but I wouldn't mind them if their vocals and drums weren't amongst the worst in the genre.
And Maiden had GODAWFUL guitars. They were incredibly simplistic, repetitive, and they made Slipknot look technical.
youre cool! haha
christ. can't you just forget about how many "technical" aspects (complexity in guitars, drums, etc.) a song has?
the misfits, the pistols, the ramones were nothing close to technical, everyone admits that, but they were fuckin' awesome bands if you ask me. why must everyone play 100 riffs in a song for the song to be good? i don't get that...
complexity does not (always) mean quality.
I hate the Misfits, the Ramones, and the Sex Pistols. Maybe that will help answer your question.
i know. it couldn't be otherwise... but you still don't answer my question...
Do you like something dude?
You better pollute some crappy political or erotic forums... We are talking about MUSIC here!!!
Good luck with your treatment...
Yes, I like music in every genre. In punk, I listen to At the Drive-In, The Blue Meanies, and many other bands that don't suck. I like my music to have at least a little bit of intelligence and creativity involved, it's just a little stipulation I like to make.

Translation by PM only!
to me music is all about emotion
i'm muchtoo stupid to analise and understand all this "technical" shit
a song has to grab meby the throat, give me goose-flesh, make me happy or sad or angry.....
what do I care if the guitarplayer isn't the best on earth...
can you understand me ???
Strons ?? What was that ??? typically Belgian word I presume
Oh and yeah : ATDI= the art of singing out of tune uke: uke: uke:
ATDI = the art of making incredibly complex moving music in a form that is known for simplicity, stupidity, and a general sheeplike attitude to conform.
maybe ... but still he sings awfully out of tune. And that prevents me from listening to their music however good it can be.
I don't think he sings out of tune as he doesn't sing in any tune at all, really. In fact, I find it hard to call their vocals singing, more like a mixture of screaming and ranting. I admit that his vocals are a little hard to take at first, but they make the music. Without his vocals, their music wouldn't be even 1/10th as powerful and emotive as it is.
