well i do have to admit that they were good back in the day, but now, their new cd is nothing compared to what they were a few years back. like when all bands go mainstream, they change their music style, which makes me loose respect for a lot of mainstream bands.
have you noticed the differences between mainstream and underground music? mainstream is all simplistic and consists of like 5 guitar chords and underground stuff has more feeling and musical talent put into it. I cant help but notice that most mainstream artists these days are in it for the money. but hey, thats just my opinion. if you can find me a mainstream song that sounds like this >>
and has a decent guitar solo, more power to you
