    But I have to disagree on the Darkness, these guys just kick ass. It's funny yet serious type stuff, retro rock that brings back the arena style 80's hair bands. Maybe I'm just living in the past, but I just always digged the 80's rock with bands like whitesake, twisted sister, the scorpions, and Poison. I laugh everytime I see that video, nothing like a giant crab throwing a boulder and a giant squid trying to attack the band to get people to notice.
    Yeah, Jet is pretty cool...no question about it.

    None of those bands you mentioned have a voice of a castrated man in front of them though....ruins every hack song on the cd....oh sure the bands you mention all do the operetic metal thing vocally on occasion...but not to that degree...I haven't heard vocals that bad since happening into early Sparks by mistake (if anyone reading has ever heard that sh*t, you know what I'm talking about.... )...

    Just do me and the world a favor Den....don't sound anything like The Darkness when coming out to right the Rock ship....you can do better than that I'm sure.

      I like Jet a lot. They sound like they could have been the opening band for Bad Company back in the mid-70s... and I dig that about them.

      The Darkness... well... I think that "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" is catchy and I dig it a little bit. But... I tried to listen to some of their other stuff and it is horrible. Just horrible. And I agree with RHogan that the vocals are what absolutely make it unlistenable. While it works on "I Believe..." I'd rather dive into a swimming pool filled with double edged razor blades than listen to an entire CD worth of it...

          Wow LABF..I'm impressed! Coltrane and Miles...you just don't run into too many jazzbeards these days......Kudos to you sir! I also love ESP..great offering from the immortal Miles.

          Thank you, sir.

          "Giant Steps" by John Coltrane is definitely one of the most difficult pieces of music (in any genre) for any musician to play. Difficult chord changes based on a cycle of major third modulations and a brutally fast tempo (MM=>200!)

          BTW, have you seen the "Miles Davis Story" DVD?

          It's slammin'! (Got my copy at Tower Records for only ten bucks.)

              No prob about the whole sdounding like the Darkness thing, I'm more of the odd one of the group, the others are just diehard Metallica fans and we sound, well try to sound, something along the lines of them.

              I wouldn't be surprised to see the Darkness as a one hit wonder with I believe in a thing called love, but I think it's a good one and if it's their only hit then so be it.

              Also getting into Unloco, saw them in concert last March at the music as a weapon tour(Chevelle, Taproot, and Disturbed were the other performers) and been kind into their music since.

              As the Rock 'N Roll historian and VP, what are your thoughts on Evanescence? I didn't like them much when they came out, but now I'm rather into them, plus lead singer Amy is really damn hot which is always a plus. Just curious what you have to say on them, their from Little Rock as well, not exactly the rock 'n roll hotbed of the world.

                She is hot, I'll give you that. To be honest though, I really don't pay much attention to too much metal these days...I was always more of an alternative type of guy but I do keep in touch since a few of my friends travel in the metal vein...So I really haven't heard enough to actually give an informed comment on them....how about Opeth? Those guys I know love them.

                  im primarily a hip hop fan...but i recently bought the evanesence cd. i was amazed, every song pretty much was very well done. theres only 11 songs which is the only downfall, but its a very good cd

                    that band is nothing man. you need to check out LACUNA COIL. theyve been doing it longer and are much, much better. check out the album Comalies.

                      ive heard mixed reviews about Evanescence...i like that cd, but people say they didnt. ive heard more people say they liked it than they didnt tho.

                      Ive never heard of Lacuna COil. i dont like real hard rock, like i said i listen to hip hop mainly, but i like all kidns of music. can u compare them to a band out there?

                        well, thats kind of where i was heading. see, LC is a lot like evanescence only a bit more rock into it. but, if you heard Christinas voice in LC you would just melt man. if you have any kind of file transfer software then check out these tracks:

                        swamped
                        heavens a lie
                        purify.

                        these are some good tunes. LC isnt a real heavy band but they are more rock oriented than Evanescence. see what you think.

                          they were pretty good...i liked that purify one. they both have good voices but the LC one sounded kinda like more of an 80s singer. thats good tho cuz i like 80s music. like i said they both have amazing voices
