i only enjoy marooned and the last track...the rest is just meh. momentary lapse of reason is worse tho...it's damn eighties pop... :/

yea its a shit album (although the version of sorrow on pulse is cool), the devision bell is awesome though

Coldplay kicks ass, thier first album has a great atmosphere to it, but a cold rush...is nowhere near as good imo.

Also this is one maiden fan who doesnt really like 7th son (accept for the vid for can i play with madness)
Propain - Contents Under Pressure
Public Enemy - It takes a Nation of Millions to hold us back
Ween - Chocolate & Cheese
Sophie Ellis Bextor - Read my Lips
Ice Cube - Death Certificate / The Predator
AFI - Sing the Sorrow
Mindless Self Indulgence - Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy
Ozzy Ozbourne - Ozzmosis
Sausage - Riddles are Abound Tonight
Skid Row - Skid Row
Creed - My Own Prison
Shadows Fall - The Art of Balance
edit: I also like AFI - Sing the Sorrow. They ditch alot of their shitty punk to make more melodic songs.

please tell me you are kidding. i'm guessing that you are.

ahha yeah, that was meant to be a joke, due to that album getting such overwhelming praise, i guess my dry humour is lost on the internet, back to the corner for me...ooo look, a peanut!
People keep talking about all these mainstream bands being "bad" and arguing over which of them are worst. I want to know what, exactly, is wrong with liking 'mainstream' music, as long as it's the music that you like and you're not just trying to project a certain image. What's wrong with listening to bands like Coldplay or Blink-182 or Linkin Park, as long as you understand that they're not "heavy" or "extreme" by any means, and you don't try to go around telling people that they are? I understand that there are a lot of people out there that really do think Blink-182 are punk and Linkin Park are metal, which as we all know is far from the case. And I can see how the stupidity of such individuals distorts the impression uninformed people have of given genres. I hate it as much as anyone when people think they're so edgy and cool for listening to bands that are really pretty mainstream. But I don't think it's fair to bash those bands, and anyone who listens to them, universally. Yes, I listen to their music. And I also listen to black and death metal. And I understand the difference. You won't find me walking around going "Oh, I listen to LP, aren't I so tr00 kvlt."

I guess what I'm saying is, why does a band being mainstream have to be a bad thing 100% of the time? If you hate their music then that's a different story, but why bash them just because a lot of people know about them? Flame me if you want, but I have nothing against mainstream music in moderation. I love dark, heavy music, but I can't listen to it 24/7. For one thing, I can't exactly put on a Bloodbath album when I'm in the car with my (conservative, military) parents, and also there are times when extreme music just doesn't fit the mood I'm in.

I guess that ends my little rant. Sorry for wasting people's time...
well as long as everyone is being open.. i kind of like that gwen stefani bananas song. B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

ahahahahhah and i love 80's pop music while I'm at it

btw.. your point i agree with trey methinks

they're mainstream for a reason: they're dumbed down enough for the masses to consume

This from the guy who posted the following in the thread "Does anyone actually read an album's lyrics?"

i'm heterosexual, so no
Since the music itself shows technical proficiency rather than actual intellect, one would assume that it is the lyrics that make a song either "dumb" or not "dumb." Unless of course there's such a thing as smart chords and stupid chords, and it's possible to differentiate between the two. I'm no musician, but I highly doubt this is the case.

So...Since you are (supposedly) heterosexual ;) and therefore don't read the lyrics, my question for you is, why would you care if they are "dumbed down" or not?
