Musical truths you've recently gleaned
 
"Recently" is a relative term, 4 years, 1 day, don't matter, what has been revealed to you as supreme musical truth?

-The Number of the Beast deserves its acclaim as one of the classic heavy metal albums of all time (this was not clear to me until last night)
-Bonham made Zeppelin Zeppelin, Page and Plant suck
-the only classic Priest studio album is Stained Class
-Captain Beyond's "Mesmerization Eclipse" could've and should've been an FM radio staple and you should be sick of hearing it on your local classic rock station
-CCR > Skynyrd
-Freebird > Stairway
-good sober rock doesn't exist exception possibly being Maiden (see the Bill Hicks quote on the subject)

Truth! :D ;)

Aite :cool:

Another one, quite obvious but worth stating that ZZ Top were only ZZ Mothafuckin TOP before the snowstorm synth drum heart attack killed them.

And, Uli Roth > Michael Schenker

Slaughter Of The Soul is really, really awesome and probably At The Gates' best record.

IMO, of course.

edit: made the realization of The Number Of The Beast a couple months ago too!

How is saying one of the greatest guitarists ever(Jimmy Page) Didnt help make one of the greatest bands ever(Led Zeppelin) one of the greatest bands ever a musical truth.

Well, most of these (all) are opinions but yeah, we can call em "supreme musical truth" if ya want.;)

- Modern metal fucking sucks.

- Extreme metal (with a few exceptions, Carcass, Mayhem, Bolt Thrower, Immortal, etc) fucking sucks. I used to love black/death metal but within the past year or so I've come to realize that virtually none of it can hold my attention for an entire album. Much of it is so monotonous and the lack of originality is unbearable.

-Led Zep is god tier. I used to dislike them but now I see that was stupid.

- I have a very hard time getting into new bands or recently released albums. I'm very happy with the music I have so when I go to try out a new band if they're not really great my thought is "Fuck this, I could be listening to Mob Rules or South of Heaven right now."

-Pop music is enjoyable if you just listen for the catchy hooks and pretend that other people don't actually believe it takes talent to perform some of those songs (lookin at you, Trey Songz).

-AC/DC doesn't suck. Sure many songs are very samey but when they get it right, they get it [I]right[/I].

-Alice in Chains rules. That is all.

-Hendrix is overrated. Sure he's got a ton of talent but meh, he's not quite as good as everyone says.

-Kiss is god tier as well. I used to subscribe to the whole "Ki$$ is a brand, not a band" mentality but then I saw them live.:drool: Amazing performance. Sure, their songs aren't overly technical by any means, the lyrics are kinda dumb, and they usually play it "safe". You know what you're getting when you spin a Kiss album for the first time, but even so, nobody does it like they do. Oh, and Creatures of the Night is the best Kiss album.:blaze:

-Metallica are still a force to be reckoned with live. Yeah, Lars sucks and James can't sing well anymore but I've never seen a band interact so well with their fans and just act like they're having the time of their lives even though it had to have been the millionth time they've stood on a stage and played those same songs. Much respect.


That was a lot longer than I expected.:eyes: My taste has changed drastically within the past two years so I guess that'd be why.

Not that I agree with him but this whole thread is just opinions, no real point in arguing about it.
