Winner of the 2020 Dumbest Comment Ever Award
Janick has a tendency to stuff his songs with great riffs. I’ve noticed that when the other guitarists write the songs, they tend to hold back for moments where there are vocals (for Adrian this especially makes sense since he is a singer as well). With Janick, there’s something interesting going on in the guitar department pretty much all the time. This song is a great example of that. So many crushing riffs, melodies, and cool chord progressions. Despite that, it doesn’t feel too busy. Bruce’s vocal parts are great. The seafaring lyric perfectly matches the rickety rhythms and dramatic chords. The new 3 guitar lineup is used to full effect here. Some great harmonies there.
