    Radically different songs by the same artist

    What are the best examples of artists progressing so far in terms of sound and songwriting that they are almost not recognizable? Pick two songs by the same artist that sound like two different artists completely (if you played them for someone who has never heard said artist before). Album...

    Small flaws of good bands

    Had this thought while discussing “Lightning Strikes Twice” in the Blaze thread... What are some small flaws of otherwise good bands? What’s that one little thing that you can objectively say could be better, even if you love a band? I’ll start with Iron Maiden and say: their live backing...

    What If: NPFTD and FOTD were albums 3 & 4?

    Listening to No Prayer for the Dying and Fear of the Dark recently it struck me: the energy, rasp, and simplicity (other than The Fugitive) on these albums flows much better directly from Killers. When released after Seventh Son, however, they sound shockingly angry and occasionally uninspired...

    Guitar Pedals

    Hey guitarists, I'm starting to gig out more (mostly rock, not metal) and looking to build a pedal board. Currently using a ProCo RAT 2 as my primary distortion, looking into an MXR M300 to beef up my reverb, and probably a Mooer Acoustikar so I don't have to carry around my acoustic guitar to...
