There you have it. 

A particular song reminds me of a character I write about. 


I'd just thought I'd confess.  :grin:

Theres something special about those guys

Sure, they may play a commonplace style of music these days, but the passion that they put into it shines forth, and really grabs my attention.

I've noticed that too.... and I've learned to respect just about any kind of music that you can tell the musician is really pouring their soul into (more or less, heh)

I guess they're leaders in drone rock. A relatively new genre where every song sounds exactly the same, and maintains the exact same droning energy throughout.

I can't fucking stand it.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

I am a musician, and I find a lot of their songs ARE very similar, as mentioned above...

However, they have a few songs on each CD that are quite unique.

I used to dislike them.

But I've learned to see past the ego games that go along with the categorization of music...

I mean, I'm not out buying their CDs, but I have no problem at all admitting that they are all very skilled musicians and that they even have a few songs that I really like.

I don't own a single CD of theirs. 

And yeah, a lot of their music sounds alike.  But I still like a few of their songs.  Not enough to purchase a CD but enough to listen to them once in awhile.  :smile:

I think the biggest thing that people fail to realize about music is that 80% of it is familiarity (your liking it, that is).  Im sure everyone here has bought a cd before and heard some of the tracks thinking "this sounds alright" only later to love that song after hearing it more.

The one thing that drives me up the wall, though, is when people say "Oh all <insert genre here> music sounds the same".  It sounds the same because you only give it a casual listening.  Once you delve into the music you will hear the differences between groups/songs and learn to appreciate or not appreciate certain styles that set each band apart.  And im saying this from the point of view of a musician as well.  Power chords are overused, but they can sound great if the song has alot of passion in it.

just my .02 :smile:

I can't stand Linkin Park. They're always on the radio at work. you know that song with the cartoon video where the guy is a fuck up so instead of trying to fix things he jumps off a building cuz he's a pussy? yeah.


And yeah powerchords are used a lot, but in good music it doesn't really matter. A great example of this is punk music. Pure powerchords. but a lot of it sounds fucking awesome.

that's a pretty general example. 'punk' is a hard genre to define these days :frown:
