Like J3 , If the beat and voice grab me, I listen. Its about Adrinilin for me. Now what I had a problem with once was that 3 out of 4 members of a band formed their own band, had guest singers on some songs, That in itself is not a problem, What the problem was is that in an extended bridge section, they put their Religious statements in it. (I know im treading the fine line but that is all I will say about it)
Also the "original" tunes went a direction that did not fit with the rest of the songs and were IMHO pretty sappy. THAT IS WHAT BUGS ME. Or bands that were hard rockers and have gotten older,, as we all do,, but then they start to go in the oppisite direction they have always done. Trying to all of the sudden to "Attone" for all the supposed transgressions. That is another topic and ill not bring that up.
