Saying bad things about my top 20 artists.


12. Jan. 2008, 19:06

Time for a new journal, and for this one, I will try and bash my top 20 artists.

20.Doves - Their vocalist is really not that good at singing.

19.Masashi Hamauzu - Writes some pretty boring tracks from time to time.

18.Portishead - Sometimes Beth's vocals go a bit over the top in some songs. That and half of their debut album was boring.

17.Darkthrone- Everything after Panzerfaust pretty much sucked.

16.Hitoshi Sakimoto- He seems to be very hit or miss with alot of his work. He has some brilliant work, and some makes me want to tear my eyes out. I'm looking at you FFXII OST.

15.Amon Amarth - Had a couple of bad albums, but made up for it later. Also Johan's vocals can get kinda jarring.

14.The Decemberists- Colin gets on my nerves every now and then, plust they have some really horrible tracks.

13.King Crimson- They have gotten worse with each album, but have not put out a flat out horrible album. And Moonchild is utter trash after 3 minutes in.

12.Canaan- They are borderline emo with some of their lyrics, and they can't seem to play anything in a new style, a lot of it sounds the same.

11.Yuki Kajiura - Half of her work on the Xenosaga series was awesome, the other half bored me to tears. She also overuses strings way too much. Not every track needs a violin solo, dammit.

10.Dream Theater- Labrie sucks as a live vocalist, and he has some cringe-worthy songs he sings. Also, This band is full of guitar and keyboard masturbation. Not every song requires a 5 minute long instrumental passage.

9.Epica - A lot of their songs sound too much alike, and their male vocalist sucks at growling vocals. They also need to learn to incorporate a few guitar solos every now and then.

8.Opeth - Lyrical content is all too similar. They also have some really boring songs.

7.Conception - I do love Roy Khan as a vocalist, but some of his work in Conception is annoyingly high in pitch. Some of their guitar solos are forced into the music. But I do love this band.

6.Yasunori Mitsuda - The Xenosaga Ep. 1 OST was quite dull for the most part, and some of the tracks from Chrono Cross were terribly cheesy.

5.Porcupine Tree - Steven Wilson sounds like a little child in some songs. They also have some weird lyrics at times.

4.Agalloch - I... uh, The Lodge was kinda boring at parts. Man, that's all I got against this band.

3.Nobuo Uematsu - He got a bit boring with the FFIX OST, but it still had some awesome tracks. His soundtrack for Blue Dragon was a bit dull.

2.Akira Yamaoka - Most of his work for the original Silent Hill is hard to listen to outside the context of the game. I have to be in a certain mood for that stuff.

1.Kamelot - Their original vocalist was
horrible, and since Khan joined Siege Perilous was pretty dull at times.

Ok, Sorry about that guys, I really love you all, or else you wouldn't be my top 20!

    The original vocalist of Kamelot wasnt horrible! You just cant handle how insanely over the top he was.

    Ok, maybe Mark Vanderbilt wasn't Horrible, but he really gets to me in some songs, but he was better in Kamelot's second album.

    As much as I love Conception and Khan (<333), I will admit that he does get kind of... yeowl-y at points on the Conception albums. I was listening to My Decision the other day, and at one point in the song, my sister commented that he sounded like a cross between a screeching girl and a dying cat who just had it's tail stepped on. A bit of an exaggeration on her part, but... yeah.

    For Dream Theater i`d have gone with spelling t.h.e.a.t.r.e the thick American way.
