When it comes to equilization, I'm an elitist. If I were in the studio, it'd probably take me a month to get all the EQ's correct on each individual instrument. But yeah, it's better sounding if I have a hi-fi system to listen to it on where I can cut out a lot of the mid-range tone and a bit of the bass and supercharge the treble.

The Wanderer is actually a good song. The problem is that the idea to back Johnny Cash with synthesizers is the fucking stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Have the band, or anyone competent, do it acoustically and it's good fun.

The only problem is a lack of energy and that is the fault of the band on the recorded take. Dirty Day is meant to sound like that and does live.

I've got to hang around to see what you make of tracks 19-21. They're going to slaughter me in the voting.

I think I'm so desensitised to heavy music that I don't even think of Empty as metal.

Being a guitarist, I really have to appreciate songs like that.

true. there are so many better johnny cash songs out there.

I could not disagree with this statement more. I think that it could have and didn't purely because of mixing. It's not like they performed it differently live, aside from an added solo.

I Am the Wooden Doors has some good instrumentation.

But it could kill you. The death growl. Ugh.

Disc 1: 1-9 owned.
Disc 2: 4-9 owned.

You'd probably be higher in the end (against all other players) but I just didn't really dig the Genesis song or the live songs.

Guitar lessons? Really? I would never do that.
