Which of the above songs has the most... FACE MELTING SOLO?
I chose these songs because it's like "Well this is nice" then BAM! It's insane solo time.
And there's only 5 because they're off the top of my head.

I picked Mr. Crowley...amazing.

However, there are many more to be mentioned. Do you want that, or do we just stick to your list?

Tell what you would've put on the list if you'd like. As long as it's not Syn Gates, he sucks balls.

Aww man, I'm not even gonna start with this.


And I picked Mr Crowley, it's probably the most memorable out of all of them, they're all good, but that one just stands out more.

Well, for one, your face gets so hot because of it's awesomeness, it spontaneously combust and thus, melts you face.

Duh.

Nothing compared to Friedman or any of the other past guitarists.

OK, so what I said was a bit harsh. I was a HUGE fan for many years. I have seen them live a number of times own the albums, all that jazz.

I just hate Dave's point of view on many things. He always wants to blame everything on others when things don't go his way (Risk is a prime example). Also, he talked horribly about albums of theirs that mean a whole lot to me. Youthanasia is a great example...why did he say those things about it? That album has always meant a lot to me man.

I know, I should still love the music...and I do. I just have a hard time supporting Dave Mustaine.

True. But you can't hate an awesome band just for the fact that it has a shity soloist. (probably not for long, considering how many people have come and gone.)

Still, everyone has an opinion, you can't really hate someone for being themself. Unless they are really annoying or something.

I see that, but for one, musicans at that level have a responsibility to the fans and should also accept blame for what they do wrong. Do you not see what I mean? If not, cool, but I really think there is something to this.

I mean NO offense at all though. I am just curious.

Yeah, I get what you mean, but I think its just harder for him to say "I fucked up" than to say it wasn't his fault. But I don't really follow Dave that much, I just listen to the music. Because I know people who are total cunts who make awesome music, I just think of people in two personalities, they have the musician side, and then the regular person side. As long as the musician side is make music I like then I have no problem with who the person is outside of the band.

I gotcha man, totally understandable. I should probably do the same, but I am kind of an obsessive asshole

Dream Theater - Stream of Conciousness... not sure what exactly "face melting" is, but that one is pretty amazing.

Out of them I would say aesthetics of hate, but I think CFH or domination are facemelters, and most metallica pre load/reload solos.

What first comes to mind is the tapping section of Symphony X's 'Sea of Lies', performed by Michael Romeo of course. I voted for Mr. Crowley BTW

Dont Fear The Reaper - Buck Dharma(of Blue Oyster Cult, very underrated).

Hotel California - Walsh and the other guy.

Most of the stuff that Brian May wrote, he is very underrated too(stuff like Killer Queen or Boho Rap).

Technical Difficulties - Paul Gilbert

Tornado of Souls - Marty Friedman

Go listen to listed solos and see if you can spot a recurring theme. That is if your face is not on the ground in puddle form after listening to Mr. Crowley.

Have anyone who voted even heard all those songs? I know I haven't so I picked The Audience Is Listening. Steve Vai's best song imo.

I prefer the solo in Halo, but the Aesthetics one is awesome too.
My name is Marc! Silly username.

Rusty Cooley - Dark Matter
Ron Thal - Hands
Shawn Lane - stuff from Powers of Ten

My top 5 would be:

1. In the Name of God - Dream Theater
2. Get Out of My Yard - Paul Gilbert
3. Jaws of Life - John Petrucci
4. War - Joe Satriani
5. Manhattan - Eric Johnson

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.
