Do you guys think that you can write a song that sounds great without huge technical rhythyms and solos?

true. it's also true that usually the music is like physical attraction, and the lyrics are like when you get to know someone better, it's even better when you have the mix. but you need that initial attraction to get anywhere else.
i need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah.

too bad yngwie doesn't count either. he takes songs that have already been written forever ago and plays them with lots of distortion on an electric guitar instead of by an orchestra like they are supposed to be played.

No, you didn't.. it never happened. To write a "simple" song defys all laws of physics.

..or I may be in denial.

Anyway, if you want simple music, just listen to "Behold... The Arctopus"

Fixed.

I know it's not really cacophony, but I find them so incredibly boring.

But sir! Have you ever listened to the sweet sounds of BTA whilst sipping your morning cup o' coffe at the small cafe down the street, nodding and smiling to fellow passerbyers and they tip thier hats to you?

No?

Sir! You and I! Tomorrow morning, 8 AM, the small cafe down the street!
