Is Junk Magic any good (theory or guitar wise)

I have a question about TwiliteMinataur's band (Junk Magic). The guy's a serious ego-maniac who calls himself a "Guitar God" and brags about how awesome he is. His band plays "cyber-jazz". How good is his guitar playing? Is his music/band good from a theoretical perspective? Also what kind of harmonies is he using anyway (all around).

You are the one that decides if the music is good. There's no good music from a theoretical perspective. Theory just explains what is happening in a song. A song could be theoretically interesting (read: complex) but it could sound like complete crap.

Is he a good guitarist? Well, at least he gets unique sounds out of the guitar. I would say that's being innovative and that's what people should do.

If he calls himself a "guitar god", he's just being an asshole and an attention *****. But that has nothing to do with his music - he can really only destroy somebody's listening experience by that. Just listen to the music and decide if you like it or not.

I didn't really like his more shreddy parts but the music has a cool futuristic "sci-fi" sound to it.

Stay the hell away. "Cyber-jazz"?

Does any of this matter? He sounds more like he's interested in making money than actually teaching you a damn thing.

I personally think his band is decent Synth Pop but the term "Cyber Jazz" is a joke . I was curious about him because he's the biggest ego-maniac I've encountered and want to know if he's any good (not like he thinks he is). I found out about him through his boasts about a "hardest" Guitar Hero Custom (the second song is someone else playing it on Frets On Fire). I came here because this is the "Music Theory" forums. Also I don't think the guy's making any money.

I'd like to know a bit about your opinions and the theoretical and harmonic traits of his 2 songs.

Why would any serious musician give even the slightest of shits about that?
