'Cept that album was terrible in comparison to Images And Words...

I just farted really loud at your comment.

You browse the metal channel and reply to two month old comments.

Or, is that a pun on the posting frequency on the metal channel?

The only album you could justify calling terrible in comparison to their others is Black Clouds and Silver Linings. A Dramatic Turn of Events was actually really good.
User avatar #103 to #102 - deathzor (02/24/2013) [-]
I agree with you in saying Black Clouds was a bad album, but the fact that the mix for A Dramatic Turn was honky and Mike's drums were damn flat is just ****** . Seriously. I will punch whoever mixed the album if I ever meet him.

That said, it wasn't a complete disappointment. I got to hear James' voice and how much better it's gotten over the years.

John Petrucci.....his distorted guitar tone was kinda awful but his playing was nice.

John Myung; well, his bass was audible.

Jordan was Jordan.

Mike and his recessed left me wanting more in terms of production quality.

That was Mikes first album with them though. Give him some time, you and I both know how nuts of a drummer mike can be, and I think a lot of that came through in Breaking All Illusions. The music is timed very strangely, but they still sound tight playing it. Bridges in the Sky is also a good example of the album. Of course, it is not as good as their other albums, but I still can't say it was disappointing. As far as the mix goes, I'll agree that it was pretty bland.
User avatar #105 to #104 - deathzor (02/24/2013) [-]
I'm not at all blaming Mike for how his drums sounded. I'm fairly certain JP was the one who produced the record, so I guess he was responsible; I'll slap his hands if I ever meet him, tell him, "NO, YOU WILL NOT TOUCH!".

I'd have to disagree with you completely.

In my opinion, their worst album to date was Train of Thought. And it's not even a bad album, just in comparison to all their other albums, there wasn't enough variety. This Dying Soul and In the Name of God are some of my favourite tracks, however.

But Black Clouds & Silver Linings and A Dramatic Turn of Events are in my top 5 Dream Theater albums, also in there are Images And Words, Systematic Chaos, and Scenes from a Memory.

Black Clouds has so many amazing tracks on it that it totally makes up for the genericness of "whither". A Nightmare To Remember, The Shattered Fortress, The Best of Times, and ESPECIALLY The Count of Tuscany are all 10/10 epics in my opinion.

And same goes for A Dramatic Turn. Every track on there serves its purpose and is beautifully original and epic. On The Backs of Angels, Lost Not Forgotten, This is The Life, Bridges in The Sky, Outcry, and Breaking All Illusions all sound completely original and tell their own epic story. The only song on that album I wouldn't give 10/10 to is Build Me Up, Break Me Down because it just doesn't hold as much originality as the other tracks do.

Perhaps my opinion is completely biased, because A Dramatic Turn was my first Dream Theater album, and I fell in love with every track on there, but perhaps that also makes me unbiased as well, because, at the time of listening to it, the name "Mike Portnoy" meant absolutely nothing to me. And being a Jazz and Theory nut, all of the songs appealed to me composition and performance wise.

I've been listening to DT since Six Degrees came out, and I immediately went back to Images and Words [since the first record sounds like **** ] and fell in love.

Train of Thought was a pretty bad album, but it still has tracks that I like:

Stream of Consciousness, Endless Sacrifice, In The Name of God, and Honor Thy Father.

My opinion is sort of biased in the sense that I don't think DT will MY DT without Mike Portnoy, but as long as they're continuing to make good music, that's all that matters.

Looking back at Black Clouds, I suppose it's kinda dumb for me to say it was a bad album, but then again, I'm buttmad that my favorite band lost one of it's founding members.

The Shattered Fortress and The Best of Times are my favorite tracks off the album, and I'm going to learn Fortress as my first seven string track if I ever get hold of a decent seven string guitar.

Compared to Images and Words + Metropolis Pt.2, nothing is as great.

Well whatever, it doesn't matter which albums are good and which aren't as good. Every album they've come out with are amazing.

I also do like their first album, though. It has a basement-band sound, which is kind of a turn off, yet there's such amazing playing on it, it's ridiculous.

Oh yeah, James LaBrie is just completely unintelligible with all his screaming.

But even if you're talking about bands that do scream a lot, the lyrics aren't that important unless they're absolutely terrible.

Because you cant understand the lyrics, its bad music right?

Yeah sure because by that logic justin bieber is a true talent.
#65 to #62 - anonymous (02/18/2013) [-]
Funnily enough after listening to it for a while you can understand most screams.

it's the same thing with rap, to me most rapping doesn't even sound english, but if I listen to the song repeatedly it's possible to derive meaning from ******** , the only difference is the skill level involved in deciphering it.

Post your favorite ax, how much you payed, how much you like it, ect.

I payed $140-ish for this, saved $200. Good but dosent do c-standard tuning so well, atleast not in my experience, harder to learn with, but sexy tones
User avatar #100 to #55 - deathzor (02/19/2013) [-]
You're gonna need a much longer scale length for C standard, lol, that 24.75" won't do at all!
#93 to #55 - vansamen (02/18/2013) [-]
The only decent photo I got of it. It's the Strat in the middle. It's from 1976, the tone and feeling is great! I got a type of Stevie Ray Vaughan/Hendrix tone. And this one got a type of "both" tone! I payed around 1600 dollars.

My Ibanez RG1451 Prestige. Got it last month as a birthday gift to myself. Got it for a really good price- the equivalent of $800 without a hardcase, but in South Africa guitars cost a lot more than in America.
The neck is so skinny, it's ridiculous; the Tight-end fixed bridge is extremely comfortable and it sustains and holds tuning really well. It's pretty versatile with the HSH configuration and 5-way switching, but I'm saving up for a set of BKPs (Supermassive 90 HSP neck, Trilogy Suite single in the middle, and Alnico V Nailbomb in the bridge)

My babe, payed 43000 g for it
#73 to #55 - cuntdestroyerrrr (02/18/2013) [-]
here's mine,

I payed $1000 for it on ebay. Amazing sound, quality, and surprisingly light weight.
******* love the **** out of this guitar.

Ibanez RGA7. Paid $680 after taxes, $20 on strap locks, $20 on a strap, $8 on lemon oil, $380 on pickups (including installation)
User avatar #57 to #55 - kudlajz (02/18/2013) [-]
$140? That must play like **** .. no offense brah. I bought my Epiphone LP used for $250 (original retail price was about $500).

If you want to play in lower tuning, get thicker strings, .11 or .12 maybe.
User avatar #61 to #57 - biggrand (02/18/2013) [-]
It's retail price is $350-$400, I got it used. And I'm using ernie ball not even slinky strings, it could just be that I had it in d-standard for a few months before trying c-standard
