Ghost suck.

All the hype they get makes me even prouder to be a Bon Jovi fan.

Heck, I would take Backstreet Boys or even a nature sounds CD over Ghost.

Ghost are just a bland retread of greater sounds from a bygone era.

And they took an underrated ABBA song and made it something grotesque.

Porcupine Tree? Steve Wilson?

A man of great taste, who sounds different every time I try a new album. Not a single marketing gimmick or trite lyric in sight!

Sorry...Ghost fans have their opinion, but my goodness I HATE THAT BAND SO MUCH! And I have for years now.

Ick.

(Love you Earl :rose: )

ya know....... I was listening to Ghost.  And........um........why don't you like this.  it has ALL the Segue baits, lol.

1. Hook-y
2. Melodic
3. Big time cheesy.

color me confused, lol

Mick

Vocals.

Satanic edged lyrics (believe me a few other favourite bands of mine have lost my favour due to this).

I hate the covers they do.

I just would rather hurl myself into a bath of acid and towel myself down afterwards with steel wall.

the Satanic stuff is silly to me.

Nothing they do at least on the new album is ground breaking.  it's been done and better

But......Meliora is a fun ride.

i like it.

sorry, lol

Mick

I don't mind anyone enjoying anything.

Remember when Earl discovered Nightwish?

That's how I feel about Ghost!

Fortunately we have other bands in common!

Agreed!

And I will say that I would take Train Of Thought and Systematic Chaos over any Ghost album.

I know this sounds so mean, but it is true: Ghost is one of the few bands I actively hate! I can't even tell you why, not exactly...

Earl loves Ghost like I love Toto! Which is cool. Rush are not the be all and end all, and fans of music have much to enjoy!

HAHAHA!  No need to come after you!  You are cool and I like your statement.  "Inconsistent discography."   That says it all!  Even me  EARL THE DREAM THEATER HATER loved them at one time! I was one of the biggest Dream Theater fans in the world through the "Awake" album!  Then it all went downhill for me but I have always purchased every DT release so it's not like I'm na├»ve and stupid about their music.  I like a few songs here and there through out their "inconsistent canon."   I actually liked most of the last DT album.  I think this new album will suck ass.  Is this the DT Thread or a ST TF Thread?  Anyway it doesn't matter!  There are no rules to my threads and polls!  Let's talk about Raider football.  Let's talk about your favorite beer.  Let's talk about dating again because I have no clue!  LOL!  All Good!!!  DREAM THEATER SUCKS!  STEVEN WILSON IS BORING!  TOBIAS FORGE IS MY HERO!!!!

  That's funny buddy.  I can't stand those two DT albums!  YIkes!  "Drain Of Drought" is like a bad Metallica album.  Sterile and boring.  Plastic Metal for foolish ears of flesh.

Earl... are you kidding? :eh:

Hey Silly Sue!  I knew this thread would draw you out!
No I'm serious!
As much as I love Steven Wilson and all that he has done it's time to pass the torch!

Wilson is boring.  Tiring.  Bland.  Trivial.

He blew his wad with PT.  Nothing can touch that material.  Sorry!!!!!

Time to move on!!!!

FORGE THE FUTURE BABY!

Of course, you know I totally disagree, Earl. ;)

Besides, I saw Ghost open on the Heritage/Hunter tour, and I thought they were too gimmicky with too little substance. I just thought it was kind of juvenile.  If I want some Skeletor-looking priest singing to me about doom and gloom, I'll go to church. And, his robed minions had on jeans and sensible shoes under their robes. It would have been more convincing if they were, like, naked under there and barefoot, or wearing Jesus sandals. But, that said, I haven't sat down and listened to any of their music. That was only my first impression of them.
Well darling, and truth be told around here that I too still in touch with my child self hence I am well a juvenile.  You just used a "He-Man" metaphor.  You are starting to write like me!  LOL!  Kidding!  Hey!  It is what it is!  I'm just sharing my love and passion for a band that many hate and many love!  It's all good!  Lots of Rush Fans on here HATE KISS too!  Hey l love them just as much as GHOST!    I've gone through many PT And SW obsessions.  I own it all hun.  It is what it is.  I'm a whore but I love to start controversy and spark intellectual childish conversations.  Life is too short to be uptight and boring!  (not saying you are my dear, you are a sweetheart)   It's all good!!
