Agreed.

I need a bootleg of this. Tell me it's not Bono singing, please. His voice is too high.

I'm mostly with you on this one. I do love a good face-melter now and again, but there needs to be a strong melody or hook to go along with it. This is why I enjoy Porcupine Tree.

But it could kill you. The death growl. Ugh.
I love Haughm's clean vocals in I Am The Wooden Doors. The growls are solid and the lyrics excellent, though I think Haughm's best growls show up in She Painted Fire Across The Skyline and Our Fortress Is Burning.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Have you heard my old band? You can find the links in B&C. The mixing is shit, but it's decent stuff (keep in mind I wrote very little of it, btw).

Unfortunately, the only live version out there is indeed with Bono on lead vocal. Great version IMO, but that might get under your skin.

A mixer can't get passion out of a band. That is the producer's job. The mixer can only work with what the artist gives them. They can't add what they don't have.

I hate being in a later group. No one will give my playlist any reviews until after the competition has started. When is that anyway, a week from Monday?

My rule of thumb is, if you can execute clean vocals well in a song ... don't stop.

The growls hurt the song for me, a lot.

The next one isn't as bad.

I taught myself when I was 17. I sucked for 2 years. But now out of all the musicians close to me, I'm the best guitarist I know who's never been in a band signed to a major label. It takes lots of hard work.

i've already got yours downloaded so technically i could listen to them whenever i'm listening to them more or less in order. if i put some of these playlists on my ipod, i could get everything knocked out while i'm at work

It could be worse. You could have a bye like me and have to wait until Round 2.
