What do you prefer, CQ?

EDIT: AiC truly is one of the best ever. Just listened to Would and Heaven Beside You again.

Tool is also nice to listen to when meditating.

I got called all sorts of names for pointing this out in another forum, but I'll say it here anyway:

Does anyone else notice the uncanny resemblance in the vocals to death metal songs & the voice of the cookie monster?

I noticed this the immediate moment that I heard death metal for the first time, and thus, I have known it as cookie monster music ever since.

Some types of metal I like. Though, since the '70s, a lot of stuff known as metal then has a different classification now. Even Steppenwolf, the writers of the song from whence the term emerged (Born to Be Wild) have seen reclassification into "hard rock" or some other wanky demotion.

Mind you, they used to call Boston (the band not the city) heavy metal. While I like the band, whoever gave them that misclassification (probably just because it has a lot of power chords in it) seriously has a limited vocabulary when it comes to music styles.

On a side note: What the fuck does R&B stand for nowadays?? It used to stand for Rhythm & Blues and way cool bands such as Credence Clearwater Revival, Paul Pena, Snooks Eaglin, Lonnie Johnson, etc used to play it. Now suddenly they've reclassified rap as R&B!! What??

I've asked people who claim to be afficionados of R&B - but have never heard of the above artists - what it stands for. They either give me a clueless look & say "I dunno," or they make some shit up like "Rap & Bass"

The same shit happened to Soul. Play some Otis or James or Aretha to anyone under 20 nowadays & call it Soul & they'll sneer at you & say "That's not soul!" (this has actually happened to me).

Has Funk suffered the same bastardisation yet?

Them Bones by Alice in Chains is the greatest metal song ever.

Enter Sandman by Metallica is also an excellent example of the greatest metal songs.

:o Neither of those is even the best song by that group.

It's very hard to pick a best AiC song, I lean towards Man in the Box, but I also feel that Grind is underrated and phenominal. Them Bones , while excellent, is pretty standard for them, and sounds a lot like Angry Chair to me.

Metallica is easy. One.

I know that neither is the best song by either group, but to me they sound more like the quintessence of metal. Hard driving, and dominating. Don't tell me the Staley/Cantrell harmonizing doesn't sound like pure ownage.

You're right, though, and I prefer Again or Would.

And Enter Sandman is a classic, man.


EDIT: Nevermind, Down in a Hole is way better.
