I suppose whichever one sounds better.

I don't really prefer one over the other, but if a complex song sounds good and a simple one sounds bad I'll go with the complex one and vice versa.

Whichever, so long as it creates an atmosphere. It's all about atmosphere for me.

That the world, that the world
Had just one

all music requires some degree of technique, so all music has technicality, so therefore the initial question posed relies on a false dichotomy.
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

I love both equally. Punk wouldn't be punk without fast, short, simple songs, and prog/experimental wouldn't be what it is without long, complex songs.

But then, who am I to judge what something can or can't be? Maybe someone will re-invent prog and make it something totally different.

both, depending on the mood i'm in. i'm bipolar and one day all i'll want to listen to is paul gilbert or john petrucci, and the next day i'll only want to hear acoustic stuff.
#14
I like fast, but simplicity vs technicality is a bit vague. it's all relative. Thrash is pretty simple really, compared to power metal etc. I like thrash so you can decide i guess.

+1 to atmosphere.

its entirely dependent on your personal state of mind at that moment.

It's not as though technical and simple are two polar extremes with nothing inbetween. Choosing one or the other is just pointless, music can be good or bad either way.




#18
I prefer simplicity and subtlety, but nothing wrong with being technically proficient, as long as there is taste involved. This of course excludes most sports guitarists.
#19
Some of both. White Stripes simplicity is too simple, and Behold...The Arctopus technicality is waaay too much. Gotta be able to mix good musicality with a bit of individual skill.

In the end though, for me it's not about either of those. It's if a band creates their own sound, I consider them good.

I like a mixture, I hate listening to the guitarists at my school telling me I suck because I dont play a huge amount of metal, and then they plug in their guitars, turn the distortion up heaps and start playing harmonic laden crap that has no meaning, i like music that has some soul to it.

I want music to sound good and express an emotion or mood in as many notes it needs.
