  1. Thanks for the feedback. And yes, I agree (I can do more to accentuate and syncopate my delivery). While I have a fairly decent range, I have trouble with going from one end of the scale to the other in an instant, which is something I need to work on.
  2. I'm going for an experimental sound. http://picosong.com/BBCr/
  3. I didn't include NWA in my list because it wasn't a rock band in the strict sense. A-Ha wasn't either (that was an error) of my part. Before you call me a hypocrite, keep in mind I didn't put Aretha Franklin, et all in my list either. My issue was that Gene Simmons didn't complain about the inclusion of other genres into the R&R Hall of Fame until rap came up. He's effectively saying that Rap is categorically inferior to R&B, which is total nonsense.
  4. A-Ha is my favorite act of the 80's, but alas, you're right. They are not rock.
  5. 1960's The Beatles The Doors The Rolling Stones The Jimi Hendrix Experience The Velvet Underground Cream The Zombies The Beach Boys The Animals The Kinks HM: Creedance Clearwater Revival 1970's Led Zeppelin Queen Rush Pink Floyd The Who Heart Deep Purple Grateful Dead Yes HM: Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Genesis 1980's Guns N' Roses Metallica A-Ha The Cure Iron Maiden AC/DC Aerosmith Pixies Duran Duran U2
  6. They should only release an album if its going to be an 8/10 or higher.
  7. But it's definitely a conflict of suburban vs urban values. White guys pioneer a new genre of loud distorted music - it's hailed as art. Black guys pioneer a new genre loud distorted music - it's "not real music".
  8. Michael Jackson is the pinnacle artist in all categories of music. Amazing singer. Amazing dancer. Amazing lyricist. Amazing songwriter. A punch of boldness, progressiveness and a willingness to take risk. He had to fight tooth and nail to get play on MTV and he ended up dominating and defining music television. Strong contender for greatest of all time song.
  9. I wish I could get into his music.
  10. You're stating that NWA wasn't included because of their merit. That's a big statement. I'm a fan of all types of music. It's important to respect different genres for what they have to offer. I mean, it's fine to not personally like something but to invalidate it because you don't like it is just the standard suburban reactionary thing to do. I can totally picture my great grandparents generation listening to the Zeppelin and saying "This is just a bunch of noise. Why is this so loud. Why did they put an electric box and distort the guitar like that? Why are they talking ab
  11. Okay, we can take NWA out of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame... But, you'd have to rescind these acts first: James Brown (Funk) Ray Charles (R&B) Sam Cooke (R&B) Aretha Franklin (R&B) Marvin Gaye (R&B) Smokey Robinson (R&B) Bob Dylan (Social poet, the roots of rap can be found in his music. let's be honest. he wasn't inducted because of his singing or guitar skills. he was inducted for his conscious lyrics) Lavern Baker (R&B) The Isley Brothers (R&B) Al Green (R&B) Michael Jackson (Pop)
  12. Is he using a certain kit, drumming a certain way or did they put reverb on his drum tracks.
  13. Gotta have some scale. I'm judging them as songs in general. Generally speaking, 5 is average. 6 and above are songs I would replay. 4 and less are skippables for me. My as well rate the rest. album: "Houses Of The Holy" (1973) The Song Remains The Same 8/10 The Rain Song 8/10 Over The Hills And Far Away 9/10 The Crunge 5/10 Dancing Days 5/10 D'yer Mak'er 7/10 No Quarter 7/10 The Ocean 8/10 album: "Physical Graffiti" (1975) Custard Pie 8/10 The Rover 5/10 In My Time Of Dying 10/10 Houses Of The Holy 8/10 Trampled Under Foot 8/10 Kashmir 9/10 In The Ligh
  14. Okay, I'll rate them, but I'll be nicer. Good Times Bad Times 7/10 Babe I'm Gonna Leave You 10/10 You Shook Me 6/10 Dazed and Confused 9/10 Your Time Is Gonna Come 6/10 Black Mountain Side 4/10 Communication Breakdown 9/10 I Can't Quit You Baby 7/10 How Many More Times 6/10 Whole Lotta Love 9/10 What Is and What Should Never Be 8/10 The Lemon Song 4/10 Thank You 8/10 Heartbreaker 8/10 Living Loving Maid 5/10 Ramble on 9/10 Moby Dick 5/10 Bring It On Home 6/10 Immigrant
  15. I heard the track. Yes, there are similarities for sure, but being inspired by something is not the same as copying it.
