  1. Appreciate your post, but have to disagree with part of it. The System Has Failed, Endgame, Th1rt3en and Dystopia are all fantastic. Musically speaking they still rip. Lyrics were huge to me with early deth and I can't relate to Dave anymore. No need to elaborate why. I like parts of the system has failed. Back in the day! I can understand that. As I said earlier in this thread, I don’t care about the lyrics, compared to the punch of the music. And that’s kind of funny, because in general I always pay attention to lyrics, I love them. But when it comes to metal I don’t care, really. It’s about the sound. I agree. That's too bad as early deth had good lyrics. Way better than Metallica and actually one of the big reasons I prefer deth over Metallica. I assume all you guys know what the band name means?
  2. Baffling that there isn't complete footage, I realize it was shot on film and I suppose the budget would go up a fair bit to soot the entire show and then process all the footage, but surely they could have managed that for the 1 Montreal show. I'm not sure if it's due to the ESL video being made for TV (it wasn't available to purchase on VHS for quite some time after). Possibly the production company retained/ disposed of the original footage? Hard to believe these days :( Here's a clip of it being premiered on MTV... The good old days. I was stoked to watch it for the first time. Best video ever shown on mtv . Imo
  3. Where's your whistle from the old grey whistle test? Back in the day, the king biscuit was great.
  4. No one is easier to own it all then the police. Sex Pistols? :P Lol You got that right
  5. No one is easier to own it all then the police. Their box set is great. I only own everything by Rush and steely dan and pre crash skynrd.
  6. Hmmm.. What about synchronicity? Others mentioned signals. Clockwork angels is the most victorious of all imo. Is the victory lap, their final lap? As in recording ETA- d'oh. Signals over clockwork based on your definition.
  7. I detect the el supremo from the room at the top of the stairs! Steely Dan for me. Tough call but show biz kid, my old school, razor boy, king of the world and your gold teeth all rule. Countdown to extinction kicks ass too. Saw that tour twice. Deth at the peak of the powers RIP- nick menza. Huge part of the sound on countdown. Lots of killer tunes but ashes in your mouth is my fave. The solos on that and hangar 18 from rust are two of deths finest moments imo
  8. So you go biking and skiing? Where the mountains? Yeah, lived in the mtns since the early 80s. I need gravity and love both mtn biking and telemark skiing. Are you in great shape? Nothing special, an old chimp trying to keep on keeping on. Lol. I have hurt myself alot crashing and overdoing it. So I gotta stretch and walk everyday to stay right. 3 miles walk and yoga everyday for 13 years. Unless I am so hurt I cant walk. Maybe I should stop listening to wake up dead! I am into it. Two times in my life when I am living in the moment.no other thoughts when riding or skiing.

  11. Isn't that song pretty much loved by the entire fan base? I've never seen any dislike for it. Great tune. Imo their best album art ever too.
  12. Nice to see the love for ACOS. What a great song.
  13. Ground breaking VS money making Post youthanasia is as bad as asia.... When peace sells came out it appealed to me in the same way old rush did. Sick energy. To this day, wake up dead is my fave song pre biking or skiing tune.
  14. Yep , I agree with pretty much all of that ������������ To follow up on the first record bit. Usually there was a reason why it was the first one you heard. Back in the day it was hearing something on the radio or reading about it. Probably the biggest influence was a trusted musical friend and a recommendation, followed by "if you don't like this one, you probably won't like anything by them" I think it gets even deeper than that. I do find myself gravitating towards the first albums I heard by many bands, even when they're not the obvious consensus first choice (The Yes Album over CTTE, War over The Joshua Tree, The Resistance over Origin Of Symmetry, Crystal Ball over The Grand Illusion, Wasting Light over The Color And The Shape, Animals over DSOTM, The Bends over OK Computer.... though perhaps not coincidentally I heard almost all of those records for the first time over a single summer from early high school). I think there's something about that first time you connect with a new band that's makes it a very difficult threshold for anything else to pass, unless that first album you hear is just obviously not one of the artist's better efforts. Interesting exception for me: Queen. Maybe it doesn't really count since my first Queen album was probably technically their greatest hits, which exposed me to at least one track from every album between Queen II and Hot Space, so I already had this notion about which songs I liked better than others and what their evolution over those first album might be a bit like. But I then went through the studio albums one at a time over the course of four years in chronological order, and my favorite came out to be A Night At The Opera, which I had anticipated from the singles being, if not their best, at least one of their best. The debut was awesome, but easily middle of the pack for me by the time I got through all the albums. Great post, lots to consider about how music appeals to us. Nothing better in my experience than to get in early with an up and coming band, love them to the crest of the commercial success and the start bitching about them selling out!
  15. How do you like Colors 2? Only heard a little bit thus far. Probably buy it eventually.
  16. Without question for me it's the first record. If the first record sucks I have rarely given a group a second try. Sometimes other records are better than the first I heard My first and still fave Genesis-trick of the tail Megadeth- peace sells Rolling stones- some girls Dream theater- I&W Talking heads - remain in light Public enemy- nations of millions Red hot chile peppers- uplift mofo party plan Between the buried and me- colors Etc etc etc Others I can't recall what I heard first but in general: The younger they were the harder they rocked Last records are rarely if ever the best Usually the more a records sells, the more it sucks. Of course there are exceptions.
  17. Hard to take photos through pungent dense clouds of smoke?
  18. Holy shit, scrolling back to 2009 in this thread was trip. My last DT show. My son's first ever show at age 11. 3rd row prog nation. Can't figure out how to insert the pic but was it was a cool gesture they did every show that tour.
  19. Defeated once again by Modern tehcnology! D'oh
  20. They might rotate a few songs every other show but it pretty much stays the same. Like how Rush would do song rotation. Years ago when Portnoy was in charge of the set he would change it for every show. Fun for the fans since they didn't know what they were getting but not as fun for James who didn't know what he would be singing at each show. Well that falls right in line with the usual story about Portnoy generally not being fair to LaBrie about his voice. Man, James must be relieved anymore he doesn't have to put up with that. The rotating set does sound cool though. It was. Consideration was given to each city and what was played there last time. Like the Grateful Dead, some people would see multiple shows per tour. I definitely side with MP. 5 years off might of helped. Best band with worse singer. Labrie is obsolete in modern metal imo.
  21. First time I saw them Anthony still came out in the head dress for Fight Like a Brave. Think it was Mother's Milk tour. Saw them at Brixton Academy on Blood Sugar tour & that place nearly collapsed. It was bouncing. After that they became a stadium act. Still love 'em though. I saw mothers milk at brixton academy. It was killer. Saw BSSM tour in Colorado with smashing pumpkins as openers. Gave up on after one hot moment. Freaky stuley and uplift are my faves
  22. I am not much of a pat fan. Pre mtv is ok. Her mtv videos were terrible imo. My question is her husband being inducted too? He was a huge part of her sound and a pretty decent guitarist.
