I have been a musician ( guitarist ) for almost 30 years,and Glenn& K.K. are some of my favorite players.I just think it could have been better.I wasn't excepting Painkiller 2,there are just no meaty hooks or melodies that makes you want to listen over & over again.It's great to be differnt thats fine,but it just does'nt stand up.Again just my opinion.Look at what happened to Kiss with Music from the Elder [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by Healer from Sunday, June 22, 2008 5:03:15 PM)
Well, I can definitely appreciate that people have different oppinions and might not like the new album but I just don't get how anyone can say there is no power behind the songs or that they just "trudge" along. I guess people reviewing just aren't musicians or something. Musicly I think this is their best production ever! I find the more Ilisten to it, which is a lot, I hear more and I get blown away all over again at the brilliance of these guys. Unfortunately I think a lot of these people won't give it more then a couple of listens which is a real shame. These guys are the Metal Gods!
