Zooropa's my favourite song that you've used so far, though I expect to like your conclusion even more.
Glad to hear it.

I think someone else mentioned liking the WGFA > Zooropa transition.

Synchronicity II is one of the few songs I like from the Synchronicity album.

yeah, more or less. there's still some unresolved crap that had a hand in why i took a break, but it's not as big of a deal to me as it was a few weeks ago.

i totally hear you about school. i keep putting off enrolling again, and i'm just taking 2000-level classes.

I was kind of digging the Subterranean Masquerade song until they did the whole metal/rage/growl vocal thing. Now, it's back to being good again.

Nah, you've listened to more than me!

Oh shit, I just realised PFan's first disc ends with The Killers and Franz Ferdinand. This can't go well.

I especially hate their vocals, just for the record.
I could ask what you see in death metal, too, but it'd just be a repetitive neverending cycle of banter. You see, I also like Zeppelin and find their music very interesting--and their production and mixing is amazing. Anyway, I love the Beatles for their voices and their ability to make a catchy pop song with sincere meaning.

I'm glad that song worked well early, because I think it eases people into the whole metal aesthetic. It's more death rock than death metal, and has a fair bit of clean vocals to offset the death growls. Plus they're very comprehensible growls as far as these things go.

Very true. Jimmy Page's guitar always sounds good thanks to it.

You know I like some songs, and most of the Regatta de Blanc album. But they are very, very hit and miss.

You're not going to listen to mine, are you? You'll skip every song.

I hate the death growl concept as a whole. I think it's laughably pathetic. The clean vocals on the song work well ... so why fuck with that?

Still, overall, it's a decent track.
