King Gizzard put out five excellent records in 2017.
If were talking pure talent in the band, Id probably say Dream Theatre.
If were talking long term/cross generational/cross genre appeal, Waters/Gilmour era Pink Floyd is hard to top.
decent list, just need to add nickelback and you're set.
What do you mean my comment was uninformed and invalid?
Are you trying to say Danny Carey and Justin Chancellor are not competent musicians ??
Adam Jones may not be Robert Fripp, but he has style and tone for days.
Special, no. Would I want to play with them, no.
This is my 1st yellow in about 4 years. I don’t listen to Nickelback either. I stand by what I said about Tool being a terrible monotonous band. They’re vastly overrated by an oddly obsessed fan base. But that’s cool if you dig them. I don’t.
Lol, at YOU snubbing Danny Carey!!
Are you that guy at the Aftershock music festival that was complaining how much he hated Tool and in the same sentence mentioned how he wished Rob Zombie was headlining ??
Technically proficient isn't a snub, it puts them pretty far above any average band musicians.
Still not my thing. I hate the vocalist. I don't like the songs.
I would like almost every band more if they just didn't have a vocalist.
Or if they do, the lyrics have to be at least not stupid. (not towards Tool)
Not a Rob Zombie guy either. How many strikes do you need here?
Never could get into Tool. Not dynamic enough and it always felt like there was some pretense I was missing
Tool is definitely the GOAT
I really like the song Rattlesnake. The video is badass too.
Frank Zappa is another musician who constantly gets overlook in the GOAT musician discussion. You had to be a brilliant musician to play with Zappa. Adrian Belew from King Crimson said he learned a lot about theory from playing with Zappa. Belew said that Zappa's rehearsals were grinding and he very demanding as a band leader, but everyone who played with him ended up a better musician.
The only criticism I have of Zappa is that I find his sense of humour to be rather childish at times which distracts from his musical genius.
You say they repetitive and monotonous but if you know their catalog their is an obvious progression of their sound and feel of their albums.
You have also failed to provide us with what IS the greatest band ??
So let's hear it ...
If you haven’t, check them out live, they are killer.
As for Zappa’s humour, I feel similarly to you, though I could listen to his interviews all day.
The “Roxy “ bluray is a thing of beauty
Aynsley Dunbar turn down King Crimson and Led Zeppelin to play with Zappa instead.
The No Quarter cover is so powerful and emotional. Same with H, the "I don't mind" part gets me every time.
Man, I remember listening to Lateralus for weeks on end on my Discman, back when I was at boarding school. Transported me to another world. Saw them live in 2006 as well, great fucking show, even if it was slightly past their prime years. These days I don't listen to Tool as much, it really does command your full attention and concentration, and if you're not up for that you probably wont enjoy it as much.
Pushit, Jimmy, H, No Quarter, Parabol(a), 46 and 2, Lateralus, so many epic songs. Undertow is great too and underrated imo, Flood, Prison Sex and Sober are classics. Even Opiate is fucking kick ass album, albeit different.
