There's a poll about Guns and Roses on my journal here. If you could please take it that would be great.

Thank you.

Check out Flyleaf
Flyleaf is this new band i haven't heard much, so i went and downloaded their album (i paid for it). their freshman disk is self titled.

The lead singer is female, and has a good voice while having a good hark rock sort of sound in her range.

the instramentals are pretty good. they seem to be one hit wonders, at least for the radio. but i like them.

melodic and angsty with driving beats, there is deffenatly a chicky teeny bopper feel. But songs like "Breath Today" are nice background music for grilling or yard work. while songs like "I'm so sick" make me think of politics.

nothing classic but worth a listen.

the first post
in the mid and late 80's and early 90's there was a surge of truly awsome bands. awsome, meaning deserveing awe, not the surfer bastudasation we all use today.

Guns 'n roses, early Metallica, Nirvana, Motly Crue, etc. Granted i have their music today, the stories, and the fucked up amglamorated bands the result from their break ups (e.g. Velvet Revolver). but i missed the happenings and feeling of the times that casued the generation of these songs i hold dear today. i can learn about it academicly, but can never feel what all of the words mean. not what they were writen for anyway.

timless songs will never die, and their meaning falls on everyone. For example: "Smells like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana, when i was a teenager it held speacial meaning for me. the lyrics meant something in my angst and tribulation. Other songs have had just as much meaning to me, some more.

I'm not saying there aren't great bands now. NIN is one of my favorits, KoRn looks to be the attache of Metallica in the coming years. but KoRn has started to suck and NIN isn't as revolutionary anymore.
Maralyn Manson would be just as crazy as ever, if he could find a new way to shock people. his music is fun sometimes, but it all sounds the same lyricly "Fuck Cristians, yeah yeah, fuck their God too. WHOOOOO. EVERBODY SCREAM!"
It seems to me that one of the few good bands left who's reach will be felt for a long long time to come is Tool, and then only to a small population.

all that seems to be left outside of these bands is an ever growing streem of emo that emulates real music, horrible rap (i do enjoy rap, the old political stuff), atrificale punk music played like is was the next Sex pistols albums (another band i missed, along with the Ramones), and Pop music. I enjoy a song here and there from an emo group, or pop band. Every so often a rap song will catch my ear that seems to have meaning other then money and pimping. and once in a while i'll get to hear the long lost blue grass i long for but never know where to go for.

Blue grass and real folk is another lost thing. i can hear any cry in my beer glass peice of shit song on the radio anywhere in the USA. never do i hear singers like Jolie Holland , bands like Nicklecreek, or other really good music makers. i wish i had their albums, but i haven't the money and get lost looking for someone else amounst the tremendous selection at my local music store.

it isn't something that is extreemly important in day to day life for many people, i know. but it means something to me, and i feel that i've missed something that i'll only be able to hear about and never TRULY know.
