In the last two albums, Dream Theater. As much of a fan I am, I think the last two (three, except about three songs on said album) albums are much weaker than the earlier.

Get back to the roots, we need a good album.

How can they be great if their songs suck?

I think he means "great musicians", in that they obviously have great technical abilities, but obviously lack the songwriting and creative aspect of music.

This. Last 3 albums were not worthy of the band. Also Stratovarious. They're good but a lot of their stuff is just junk.

I just love their 2 latest albums, because they are more dark and heavy then their other albums, the others are more their prog side, but the 2 latest albums are the dream theather that I want, heavy and progressive

CHICKENFOOT

When I saw who was in that band, I was like "Shit yeah, this is gonna be epic."

Then when I heard the music, I was like "... the fuck is this?"

They're all really talented musicians and I'm sure they could write something pretty amazing. It just sucks that they'd rather get drunk and make the same video game music song over and over.

Lol yeah. Chickenfoot. Look up the lyrics to their songs if you want a good laugh.



the terms "hey" "oh yeah" "wooo" and "baby" are a must for any CF song.


like this

"hey baby, oh yeah! woooo!"

or

"oh yeah baby, hey?, woooo!"!

or

"hey wooo, oh yeah baby"

Lol. Use of the word "baby" decreases the quality of any song by upwards of 80%.

But what if they're talking about an actual baby?

Well I count being a good musician as being able to write good songs...so none.

Might get flamed for this but I'm gonna say Muse, Matt Belamy writes some of the most cringe worthy, childish lyrics. Great musicians though.

I really don't think a band can be considered "great" if they can't write good songs. They can be good players of their individual instruments, but not a great band.

I'd say they are the opposite. They write good songs but they're not great musicians.

I remember thinking their music was gonna be cliche and generic from the get-go.

I agree on Dream Theater. I'll also say Rage Against the Machine. Somehow, a band made up of so many good elements fails consistently in making great music.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

I agree. If they didn't make their songs sound similar, they would be a good band.
