Indeed... Selling out would be 18 songs of Busted-style 3 minute whine-fests... And last time I check,ed Charlie SImpson and Synyster don't talk much:P

Seriously. I think this album is less radio-friendly than City of Evil was, and yet it gets more criticism for.

syngates....i love you! man why can't anyone see that!!!!! this album isn't a sell out by far... its probably one of the greatest experimental albums i have ever heard.... with the exception being mars voltas most recent album.....but thats not the point.... and i tried to tell everyone to listen to it more then once and it will grow on you!

^ yea agreed....it isn't a sellout and i am an example of the fact that listening to it
more than once is what you need to do. after the first listen i hated it but then after a dozen or so listens it's actaully comparable to CoE.

and a little peice of heaven isn't sellout it's just.......very different i spose

I love A Little Piece of Heaven. If I were to pick a favorite song it would most likely be that.

There were too many people screaming in the videos, so I just stopped watching them...

Anyone think that the s/t is so much better than City of Evil? I mean, in terms of catchyness, diversity, and musicianship, I think this album is amazing. I don't care too much for the first two, but they aren't terrible, I just don't like how they used those songs as singles... What about Afterlife? Brompton Cocktail? A Little Piece of Heaven?

Critical Acclaim's intro just seems superfluous, especially with the random organs... I don't think it's much of an intro for any album/song. Maybe if they didn't just repeat it twice and made it a little more musical, like adding an octave on the repeat

I thought that I'd hate this album, but I was surprised. Mainly because I used to hate them for the fact that they stopped screaming...

Random organs? They were there because they wanted them there. How on earth is that 'random' in any way?

Yeah, I just didn't think it was necessary. To me, it just didn't seem interesting. I guess I'm just on a huge "symphonic stuff is more interesting" phase. I'll word things differently next time?

Lol like the mods need to give an explination and like YOU can boss them around telling them to give an explination. The Last one was closed for spam, Anyone could see that. "Hey whats up?!" Isn't relevant discussion.

People have different interpretations of what good music is. Hell, Some people like Dillinger Escape Plan... yeah, anyway.

I finished tabbing the full album =]

........................................ LMAO You don't know what you're talking about. Synyster changed strings after every show. He doesnt have 8245925487658265 Synyster Customs LOL. He uses GHS Progressives: Custom Light strings too. Schecter string theirs with GHS Boomers.

How Dare you? Learn some respect.

so basically you had multis, you think we must respect fiures of authority even though its just the internetz, by the way when i was banned i read the original a7x thread, loads of spam so iwouldnt freaking talk buddy.

The Last Interview I seen was on MTV2 with synyster gates. And he said he uses GHS progressives to get the "Mustaine sound" in his harmonics. (i.e: F 15ma Octave Artificial harmonic at the end of the seize the day solo, the same harmonic in to end the rapture and the semi harmonic in the Beast and the harlot solo).

*looks at join date* Jan '07? The origional was made back in '03. You're a little late. There wasnt that much spam as this is now. It always had some relevance to Avenged in it. Like "WHOA I GOT AN AVENGED HOODIE!!! YAY!!! *pics*" or awaiting City Of Evil. Good times. As for the first part of your post, You're basically saying "F#CK AUTHORITYYYY!21!1112341231!!111ONE!!!1"? And that makes you cool? There's authority, there's law and there's controversy on the "internetz". If you don't respect those "figures of authority" or "follow those laws" you may have your privileges taken away.

EDIT: HAHA And I remember seriously hitting on GiantRaven then I found out he was a man Yeah I suppose, it did have alot of spam. But at least it was interesting spam.

In Other news, This Album is Really starting to grow on me. But a bit of it's quite chaotic like the intro to Lost.
