Give me money.
« on: May 09, 2006, 05:36:27 am »
There's a crapload of new CD's comin' out (or already out) and I need money. Right now I can afford the new Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and AFI. But there's oh so many more...

So, I'll gladly accept donations!  ;D
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Do you want a copy of REDEEMER?

If you can wait three weeks, I would be more than happy to buy one for you, complete stranger.

Nobody should be without Machinae.

Tool has two good members. :T

Danny Carey is a drumming genius.  His use of Fibonacci sequences in congruence to his drumming is really out of this world.  I respect him greatly as a drummer.

Justin Chancellor is a wicked bassist and the fact that his inclusion in the band is more oustanding than the guitar itself is something you don't hear too much in any sort of band, let alone a progressive style band where the synthesizer is supposed to be the key instrument.

Maynard James Keenan is a boring vocalist.  All he brings to the table as far as musical talent is concerned (lyrical writing aside) is mediocre vocals.  I was honestly never too fond of A Perfect Circle, either.

Adam Jones...Why the Hell is this guy in the band at all?  He's worthless.  He sucks at guitar and his inclusion in the band is minimal, since on pretty much every Tool album I've heard (Lateralus in particular), the guitar was downplayed to the point of insignificance.  Forgettable guitar riffs do not bode well with me.

As songwriters, they're great.  Tool brings a lot of great stuff to music, especially with Lateralus (what, with the alternate track sequence and the excellent song construction), but as individual musicians, only Danny Carey really stands out from the band.

There are better progressive bands out there. :T

If anyone so much as says "Dream Theater" in reference to this, I will shun them, because Dream Theater are nothing but pompous, overblown, middle-aged men who have nothing better to do than wank on their instruments than get together and write a good fucking album.  I haven't heard any superbly good Dream Theater music since Metropolis, Part II: Scenes From A Memory.

tools singer is quite good, just depends on your preference. i think tool are less progressively inclined than other bands youre comparing them to. for the more alternate mainstream heavy scene, they do a good job, and perfect circle have some nice pieces, though ill admit i havent listened to them as much.

the drummer from tool is my main drive, plus the vocalist, the bassist too.. guitars ill admit youre right therre about forgettable riffs. the technique you talk about that the tool drummer uses, thats interesting.. im gonna have to read into that, would definetly like to try that technique
