Nice Boys AND overly scientific ass mother fuckers.. don't play Rock N Roll and can not be expected to understand it, or what soul is. How the hell does one approach AFD and try to come up with some melodic formula for it?
Slipdisc, you're a smart dude but as for as what we're talking about, ignorant as bricks my man.
That's so profound...my man
Back your statements up with some solid arguments. As far as I'm concerned I just see two nostalgically challenged sticking up for each other, by ruminating each other's unfounded BS. Who said anything about a formula? Why don't you and mr. Ultimate Reference (Munster) here tell me the formula? After all, its you two who feel confident enough, about your grasp of the concept "soul", to abuse it to look down on others? Not me
. Again (!), Please elaborate what "soul" in music exactly is? Nothing should be easier than to explain something that's clear and unquestionable to an extend that it's fine to downsize others with it.
Explain why we all should adopt you and your buddy's personal definitions and criteria as absolute truths, in a totally subjective context? Why it is permitted for mr. Ultimate Reference to disqualify people and their taste in (and understanding of) music (or GNR), based on their views on CD? Notice how I not once said something (bad nor good) about AFD, yet you somehow feel a need to question what that albums means to me or my ability to understand it. Creating the illusion of responding to something I introduced to this discussion. Is it you modus operandi to create artificial points, out of the blue, to somehow force a discussion into a direction you can actually manage yourself in?
Go ahead focus some more on my (scientific?) style and other secondary bullshit (maybe the length of my posts?). Introduce a couple more offtopic points and respond to them yourself. Lace them with another dozen "weasel words". Objectify your personal worldview further and write us the ultimate "for dummies" guide, oh great anonymous authorities. From here you two look about as laughable as two colorblind preaching why red is a better color than blue. No matter how hard you try, there are no absolute truths in music, soul will always be a subjective internal concept and popularity isn't equivalent to quality. I have no desire to write an essay on my personal taste. I never would have contributed to this thread if it weren't for:
it has almost nothing from the magic, the soul & the groove AFD has.
Sorry, but people stating that Chinese Democracy is a Gn'R record can't be very much into music or must be living in a weird world like Axl himself. I always wonder what kind of "fans" these people are, who obviously haven't understood the band Gn'R at all.The Velvet Revolver records also were more successful than CD - that says everything.
The burden of proof lies with the accuser(s)...
