    KAMELOT are back with The Shadow Theory (2018)!

    WTF is with the shitty harsh vocals on Phantom Divine, The Proud And The Broken and Mindfall Remedy? Nothing ruins a heavy metal song like the addition of Cookie Monster-sounding vocals(?). The first two tracks I mentioned would be stellar, if not for the growly shit, but Mindfall Remedy is absolutely destroyed by that crap. Not a bad album, but cheapened by the harsh nonsense.

    Judas Priest - Firepower

    Not surprising, considering the source. Oh, horrors! I've opened myself up to an opinion of Bruno Mars being a superior singer to Rob Halford; a more talented drummer than Scott Travis, and possessing guitar skills surpassing those of Glenn Tipton, Richie Faulkner & K.K. Downing combined.

    Last Autumn's Dream - In Disguise

    Just sat through about 25 random tracks from their studio offerings, and I was astounded at just how truly awful their lyrics are. They give Ron Keel a run for his money for the title of most banal, tepid, limp, pedestrian, run-of-the-mill, mediocre lyrics ever. Hokey cliche after hokey cliche after hokey cliche. Same extremely boring messages over and over; repetitive, "You're an angel", "You're no good for me", "You broke my heart", "I can't live without you." nausea-inspiring nonsense. There's certainly nothing they do to get the blood rushing through my veins. I guess if I were comatose, and wanted to hear basically the same goddamn song repeated over and over, then I might get something out of their catalogue, but those 25 or so tracks were absolutely mind-numbing to sit through. Auto-pilot rock - no imagination whatsoever.

    Song of the Day

    I stated his lyrics suck and that truly lousy song sounded like shit, and I have zero interest in anything he does because I find what he produces to be pure garbage. So because I don't like his crappy music, and don't find what he does to be remotely pleasurable to my ears, you take the politically correct stance that I'm "hating on someone's talent because I don't like their style of music". Wrong. It's the music itself, as well as the style I don't like. In my opinion, I'd rather listen to artists I feel are much more talented, and actually play things in genres that don't annoy the hell out of me. My opinion - I don't like him, and his crappy music. You have your own opinion, but to carry on as if people have to appreciate shit you happen to like simply because you like it is just another shining example of the pretentious bullshit you level against those daring to disagree with you. If that's something that bothers you, well, tough shit. I'll continue to offer my opinion on things I like and dislike, and again, if you don't like it, too bad. I really don't need your endorsement on anything anyway, so spare me the high and mighty opinion of your taste and lofty opinion of yourself. Your clique members might buy your holier-than-thou attitude. I don't. I'm just too old school to give a good goddamn about a-holes, who think they know it all, and expect everyone to see things from their self-righteous point of view.

    I lasted 33 seconds before shutting it off. That has all the musicianship of a chimpanzee fucking around with Pro Tools. This guy's lyrics are below the level of atrocious. For example, give a read to this slice of fluff from another of his lame tracks: "You can count on me like one two three I'll be there And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two You'll be there 'Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah" Talk about yer shit aimed at the lowest common denominator. You couldn't pay me to listen to anything that little shit sings over a backing track puked out of a computer. Precisely what's wrong with what the industry tries to pass off as music today - zero musicianship. Just one other thing. The guy plays drums, piano, guitar and bass. Just for the record I think you left out pianosaurus. I doubt the little turd's name comes up whenever actual musicians sit around discussing people with proficiency on any of those instruments.

    Y'ever?

    Have an instance where you have music playing in the car, and a section comes up in the song where a siren, or siren effect is used, and you begin looking around wildly for an emergency response vehicle, and you go, "Where the fuck is THAT coming from???" It really makes one feel like they should have, DUH, tattooed upon their forehead.

    Always loved this track - Easton's solo ain't especially technical, but it fits the mood like a glove.

    FM - Indiscreet 30

    I tried listening to these guys once - gave about 10 tracks a listen, but I just found it too lightweight for my taste. They didn't seem to have much diversity lyric-wise. Every track was basically in the same vein; same topic, and it just got monotonous listening to the same story track after track. I seem to recall even their attempts at a slightly heavier sound being way too ballady for my liking.

    Brad Gillis - Chain Gang. With Gary Moon on vocals. Sadly under-rated guitar player.

    I did a search and found Starbreaker - Break My Bones - was listed in this thread way back in '09. Great effin' song - absolutely knocked out by that chorus. Been spinning it for a few days now. Magnus Karlsson is one killer songwriter.

    Crystal Ball - Déjà Voodoo

    Agreed... New singer sucks - one step away from Cookie Monster territory.
  13. I'd never even heard of these guys until a few days ago. Checked out a few tracks on YouTube, and holy shit, if their stuff isn't right up my alley. The more I listened to, the more I was astounded that I HADN'T heard of them before. Top notch progressive metal with riffs aplenty and wicked keyboards. Highly recommended for fans of the genre. Two big thumbs up.

    Yngwie Malmsteen - World On Fire

    Just glossed over this album, and I can say without a doubt, I have never heard more muddier production ever. Fucking awful. It sounds like the master tapes were tossed into an old Black & Decker blender and someone hit the frappe button. Worst mix I've ever heard. The music sounds like it was recorded in an empty warehouse by someone with no clue of production whatsoever. The vocals (by Yngwie himself) are so garbled and mangled, and mixed so poorly, you'd swear he'd never been in a recording studio before. I'm not one of those people, who shit all over his work just for the hell of it, but this is just..... bad. No, check that - fucking terrible. I've got a rusty hinge on my gate that sounds better than this poop. Geez, I'm listening to it again as I type this, and it's even worse than I initially thought. Gawd - please make it stop!
