I forgot to ask this before
Master of Puppets not getting that Grammy award ruined that band, I liked the black album when it came out but now it's very hard for me to listen to, it's very watered down.

Why do you think ... AJFA not getting the grammy ruined the band?


I still am a minority of one, but I dig Load and ReLoad to this day. St. Anger was a pile of dog snot, though.

Make that a minority of two, I like Load and ReLoad as well. St. Anger has its moments. For the longest time I didn't like ...AJFA with the exception of One, but now looking back I like it more then in the past.... its still far from my favorite but I don't have a problem throwing it in the cd player every now and then.

Cocaine, Eric Clapton. Pandora chose it from my Cat Scratch Fever channel.


I forgot to ask this before

Why do you think ... AJFA not getting the grammy ruined the band?Because after that, their music tried to win accolades, they started aiming it, making "product" for a wider audience, which is more about targeting and softening to gain more radio play and thus wider acceptance. It's not from the heart or the groin, it's from Bob Rock's 64-channel mixing board. It's slower, thinner, uses the word "crap", shorter, less inventive, less changeups, less balls, no more sci-fi instrumentals. That era is more about marketing than about music, it sounds more produced than anything else (Death Magnetic gets away from this, and I didn't know it wasn't Bob Rock until I started doing the research for this discussion), they started going for a formula that let folks like my grandmother listen to them. They wanted accolades and cash over playing badass music. Even Lars' drumming feels lazier from the black album on, IMO.

Even Lars' drumming feels lazier from the black album on, IMO.

I agree with that one no doubt. He once said he isn't as interested in the drums as he used to be (he continued to take lessons through ...AJFA). I understand his 'concept' behind his playing on Load (he wanted to make an album without using double kick drum) and he also said he stopped listening and following Neil Peart. While he was never known for "Peart like drumming" he was known for lightning fast double bass work and he totally got away from that. During the recording of St. Anger he said that some of the songs were long and that he even was playing double bass again. While both of those points were true I found that just because you're throwing in some double bass that doesn't mean that double bass was needed.

When listening to live shows (I've got a number of bootlegs from pretty much every tour they have ever done) and his playing has become sloppy and he takes "the easy way out" when playing KEM - Puppets era songs.

All of that said even at my "prime" as a drummer and Lars at his worst he could have one armed and one legged out drummed me.

Was playing all my Metallica right now on shuffle, it was the end of Suicide & Redemption, then it went to Call of Ktulu, and I was like "I don't want another instrumental right after 1" so I clicked forward and Orion comes up! It's like the metal gods were trying to tell me something... something about forgetting to mention Hetfield's vocals and how they're now "singing". :p (I didn't use it in my prior post because I think it's a little unfair to call out, the guy's throat is probably trashed from years of the original Metallica scream so he has to do something new.)


Anyway, you shouldn't feel bad that Lars is a better drummer than you, he should be, he's the ****ing drummer for Metallica, that should mean something extra special! But for a while now he's sorta forgotten that.

JimJamBonds

Hetfield lost his voice while recording "So What" during the Black Album, since then he has been using an actual 'warm up.' He talks about it on the S&M 'behind the scenes part.'

I think his voice has matured as he has gotten older, however with that has come "wooo's" "yeahhhhh's" and other nonsense. :)

Ohh and one more thing about Lars. He used to be my favorite member, now I think he's a D bag.

JediTricks
07-09-2010, 03:01 PM
I didn't know he blew his voice out on a punk cover, that's pretty goofy. :p Listening to it now, sounds like he's going for the job of Henry Rollins understudy.

Ever since Lars threw a very public hissy over Napster (when it was really his dumbass engineer's fault), he's been on a massive downslide into d-baggery.


Uh, anyway, I was listening to Life, by Sly & the Family Stone before that.

You Can't Always Get What You Want, Rolling Stones, it's a slow live version though so I'm jumping it forward. Live Wire, AC/DC came up. As for show tunes (I don't theme my music based on you people, it's based on my playlists when I get here), is it in Iron Man 2? I dunno, I didn't see it, but I hear that film is just a backdoor method of a greatest hits album for AC/DC.

Nor is it a cover of the Ted Nugent song of the same name. If only I had the Weird Al song, I'd be able to have a "Dog Eat Dog" Threefer (a local station used to have a program called "Threefer Madness" in which they would play groups of three songs by the same artist, or songs with something in common).

Was ripping some Quiet Riot to the computer, which made me look up Slade (the band who originally did "Cum on Feel the Noize" and "Mama Weer All Krazee Now").

My McDonald's Beard, I had no idea that Quiet Riot did total carbon copies of both songs.

This got me to browsing Amazon's MP3s to listen to some other 70s bands I'm not especially familiar with. Badfinger seemed especially interesting--basically, every song you always want to say is Wings, but you know isn't, these guys most likely did.

Beatles maybe, particularly on "Come and Get It", but the vocals never reminded me of Paul.

I just looked them up on iTunes, and the songs I remember are only available as re-recordings. Then I remembered that they were one of the first bands on Apple Records, so that is probably why iTunes does not have them. They have a lot of the solo Beatles stuff now, but still no Beatles.

If you listened to indy rock stations (103.9 The X would be local 'round here), these would be their "hits" then:
"Mudshovel"
"Outside" (I much prefer the studio version to the Family Values live one with Fred Bizquick)
"So Far Away" (which also got less "edgy" radio play)
"Far Away"
"Right Here"
"Come Again"
There's also an accoustic version of Tool's "Sober" on the CD that's pretty cool.

But as they say with jokes, if you have to go into too much detail, it's not as well known as it should be.

They had several on the mainstream & modern rock charts. "It's Been Awhile" (#5) and "So Far Away" (#24) were their only top 40 hits the Billboard Hot 100. I am familiar with those two as well as "Outside", which I think I heard the live acoustic version with Aaron Lewis & Fred Durst more than the studio version. I was listening to a Canadian station a lot at that time that played modern rock.

Actually, I barely listen to the radio for music anymore. I haven't even been listening to the Music Choice channels on cable, or internet radio either. When I'm online lately, I seem to have other stuff going on that would use up a lot of bandwith and make streaming music not work as well.

The Four Horsemen, Metallica. Pretty kickass song, Mustaine's writing seems to be all the maturity on this album's sound.

Speaking of Metallica, I was listening to Death Magnetic on my headphones the other day, and I'm almost sure I could hear Hetfield using an autotuner. I think it was Unforgiven III. It wouldn't be surprising really considering how wrecked Hetfield's voice got, but boy would it be a sellout move.

Death Magnetic barely redeemed them after St. Anger. Barely. The songs from St. Anger are okay taken by themselves, but it's a huge chore to listen to the album.

On the one hand, it wouldn't surprise me to know Hetfield used an autotuner (I haven't noticed, but will check it out). On the other hand, wasn't this album produced by Rick Rubin? That's not been his style for a while... but, then again, he did start out with hip hop, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise on that front, either.

I've listened to The Unforgiven III maybe three times, its one of the few Metallica songs I truly truly don't like and I pass on it when it comes up (the same goes for The Unforgiven II, but the OG Unforgiven I like).

Holy Diver, Dio


Death Magnetic barely redeemed them after St. Anger. Barely. The songs from St. Anger are okay taken by themselves, but it's a huge chore to listen to the album.

On the one hand, it wouldn't surprise me to know Hetfield used an autotuner (I haven't noticed, but will check it out). On the other hand, wasn't this album produced by Rick Rubin? That's not been his style for a while... but, then again, he did start out with hip hop, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise on that front, either.It was produced by Rubin, but Rubin isn't only a hip-hop producer, and I've never heard he was a cheat. His production style is usually straight-up. And he's produced Slayer, RHCP, Danzig, System of a Down's best album, and Rage Against the Machine's worst album.



I've listened to The Unforgiven III maybe three times, its one of the few Metallica songs I truly truly don't like and I pass on it when it comes up (the same goes for The Unforgiven II, but the OG Unforgiven I like). I don't care for Unforgiven II, but 3 ain't so bad, it's an adequate part of the album. Or, it was until I started noticing it's got autotuner on it, which I can't stand. James Hetfield's role is not spelled "T-PAIN"



It was good, but they required greatness to fully redeem St. Anger. It was just not as good as any of their pre-Anger studio albums.

But they still have time. :DTime is, as far as we know, not cyclical, so they don't really have time to become what they were.

I know Rubin is far more than hip hop; my point was that's where he started, and autotuned messes are, unfortunately, where the zombie genre known as hip hop has gone.

I hear the name Rubin, and the first thing I think of is a dude with an almost supernatural ability to seek out washed-up but madly talented musicians, strip them down to the bare core of what makes their songs great, and give them the most chart success they've had in their careers. Like what he did for Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond.

Speaking of Metallica, I was listening to Death Magnetic on my headphones the other day, and I'm almost sure I could hear Hetfield using an autotuner. I think it was Unforgiven III. It wouldn't be surprising really considering how wrecked Hetfield's voice got, but boy would it be a sellout move.

Almost everybody's using those things these days. I'm almost getting where I like to hear out of tune voices.

21 Guns (is it?) by Green Day had the unmistakable perfect pitch correction and artificial sound enhancement of an autotuner when I listened closely to it the other day. They sold out a while ago though.

Some of their songs were kinda sappy but they had a good band for the time, and a really good keyboardist. Saw them open for Tina Turner back in the day. Was impressed with their ability to recreate all of their songs live without missing any studio parts. Unlike a lot of over produced bands. After the above mentioned album they kinda fizzled with "so-so" mediocrity IMO.

The Cars are fun and cool. Most people don't know they had their first hits in the 70's and they're not your typical New Wave 80's band but rather were one of the bands at the start of New Wave scene in the US before it really took off.

Recently we got a keyboardist and my band started doing "Bye bye love" "I like the night life" "She's a lot like you" we plan on doing a couple more too along with a whole New Wave set we're already doing. The Cars songs always pack the dance floor.

By "I like the night life", I think you mean "Let's Go", and "She's a lot like you" is "Dangerous Type". The Cars were my favorite band for a long time. Those first two albums are still among my favorites.

Man Greg Hawks is one busy guy. lol It's kinda funny. He also had to tweak the knobs on those old un-programmable synthesizers by hand, as the technology was in it's infancy then. I'm guessing with modern programming skills I'm sure he's evolved into doing these days he can program all the keys parts and even the percussion instruments he's playing in that old video. He could then play the bass without distraction. Unless they have a fill in guy back on the keys? Tough shoes to fill either way.

Another interesting thing I found while looking around was an early version of "Bye Bye Love" by a precursor to The Cars, Cap'n Swing. I think this had Ric, Ben and Elliot Easton. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XG98jRi6H-M Ric appears to be singing on this version rather than Ben. Song has a different vibe to it than The Cars version. There are other Cap'n Swing song on there, but I've not listened yet. I also see that someone posted the album by Milkwood, which was a more folk sounding group with Ric and Ben. Greg played on the album as well.

Choose less-tasty tunes next time, JT. :D

Right now: a song from Black Swan the film, but I've heard it before as a standard classical song (although as I listen, I hear "extra" sounds in it)... "Stumbled Beginnings" by Clint Mansell.

I bought The Pogues' album, "If I Should Fall From Grace With God", yesterday off of iTunes and I probably listened to it nonstop for about 6 hours last night at work. In fact, I'm listening to it again right now.:thumbsup:

I've also been listening to "Impurity" from New Model Army and "Perverse" from Jesus Jones. Both highly underrated and overlooked albums from the early 1990s. In fact, I had to track them down on CD because Amazon and iTunes doesn't have those two albums in MP3 format.

90's Power Pop - Alternative former member of The Jellyfish and The Grays, Jason Falkner, pays homage to the great R Stevie Moore's "Play Myself Some Music"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wb3fNFpi50 :cry:

You can tell who influenced many bands and musicians including Falkner, and Ariel Pink.
R Stevie Moore has been producing low tech songs from his home and making videos since the 70's. They are all on Youtube now.

Bad Reputation, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Currently on track 5, "Too Bad on Your Birthday."

I'm so glad that my daughter has developed an affinity for her, Michael Jackson, Alison Krauss, Sarah McLachlan, Johnny Cash, and other talented musicians before ever hearing a note of fluffballs like Miley Lohan-Bieber. I've been told I'm depriving her, but I fail to see how--she gets to listen to music she likes, and I don't want to bash my head in when she is. (Except when it's Elmo.)

While cleaning and boxing up things in my classroom to end the school year yesterday and today, I use CDs (which work better at this than hundreds of songs on an MP3 playing device) to gauge how long I've been there, and whether I should leave for the day; when the last disc I've brought ends, it's time to depart. Which did I bring, and actually listen to?
Brought (* = heard entire disc, + = heard part of it)...
- SW, ANH:SE
- Pat Benatar Greatest Hits
- Smashing Pumpkins Greatest Hits +
- Best of Depeche Mode *
- Essential Hall and Oates * (just disc 1)
- Best of Run DMC *
- Stan Getz Greatest Hits *

After seeing the newest Pirates of the C. (get it? :D ) flick this weekend, I picked up the soundtrack (with a coupon! ), and my favorite track has been "Palm Tree Escape." The remix tracks are interesting; disappointed that the "End Credits" track is only about 2:00 in length, unlike the full roll of credits time.
