He has incredible chops, but I don't care for the (IMHO) overabundance of sweeps in his music. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think there's a fine line between awesome and annoying as hell when it comes to sweeps.

But, and I've said it before and I'll say it again, most of you guys would probably hate a great deal of the music I listen to and write. Except jazz; jazz seems pretty popular here, or at least fusion is, and I tend to listen to more fusion than straight acoustic jazz.

He's pretty tasteful and creative in his use of sweeps, IMO. But different strokes really.
(Fusion/jazz is awesome btw )

He has incredible dexterity, and hes a very talented guitarist, but I feel like I begin to like his music less the more I listen to it? I'm not sure why. Maybe hes TOO good for my ears...

His sweeps are usually quite a bit more interesting than the basic minor/major forms that everyone learns.

I find his playing incredibly interesting.

At first I was turned off by the "abundance of sweeps" but I've grown to like it over the past few months. I find Tosin's style is different and has a little bit for everyone, if that makes sense.

I love Tosin! He has so many unique ideas (such as all the tapping things he does (CAFO, Tempting time), and the his sweeps are usually much more interesting than major/minor arps ^^), and he really knows how to put together a great song. + he appears to know quite a lot of theory, and he appears to be into jazz , which makes him awesome .

I find his use of ornamentation to be tasteful. They makes sense to the musical context, aren't overdone, etc. This can't be said of a lot of other players.

He also has a lot to say with his music.

I'm just so glad that he can explain his compositional techniques in a musical context. That makes him a musician and not just a guitar player. ....in Fantastic.

Looking forward to the upcoming videos. I like how he expresses himself talking. My guess is that not only is he an awesome musician, he would be an awesome teacher as well.

One of those players I still enjoy listening to - for me that's incredibly rare and puts him in some very distinguished company.

I much as I love his music, his album must not be selling all that well... i mean he cant even afford pants that are long enough or even laces for his shoes! :P








........ Im just jealous.





Also, EMG TV needs to video all his remaining songs and just release a dvd. I'd buy it!

I wasn't talking about the tonalities of the chords. I just find that using sweeps all the damned time gets on my nerves.

Same reason why I'm not terribly fond of Frank Gambale, really.

I guess I can see what you are getting at, it is a ton of sweeping, it just is not the run of the mill sweeping we are used to so I love it. Now, excess tapping is something that really gets on my nerves. We played with a band this weekend and every song they have has an extended tapping solo/backandforth/harmony section and it drove me nuts. Tosin does a lot too but he is good at it, these guys were basically playing Eruption in the middle of every song.

Is Misha going to be doing the drums again for the new album? Or will it be the current drummer? I certainly hope Misha will do magic again.

Misha will probably do all the programming of the glitchy/electronic type stuff. I don't know about the rest though. I'd actually quite like if Navene did the drumming.

EDIT: I don't even think a new AAL album is quite in the works yet. Unless you know something I don't.

I like Navene alot... and I don't doubt he could do great work. When I first heard him in Animosity back in the day, just by what he could do at such a young age, I knew he'd be a name to remember

Can't say I liked any of the aspects of the tracking and the mix of the album.
I'm not sure if you meant the actual programming itself, which is fairly good, but the drum sound doesn't blow me away.
Don't expect any new material for a while though

I'm with Harry, I was actually quite disappointed with the albums mix and what not. I loved it, but I feel Misha is capable of doing much, much better.

i hope they make the kick drum quieter on the second album. when i put this cd in my car, i have to turn my subs way down because the kick is all i can hear! come to think of it, periphery is the same way but not quite as extreme.

IIRC the new album will be written by the band (Tosin/Javier/Navene) as opposed to being a collaboration between Tosin and Misha like the first album. He's also doing a Jazzier side project first from what a couple people who have talked to him recently have said.

It's a surprise

I asked him on facebook "Did you help Tosin write Wave of Babies?"
And he replied:
"yeah i wrote a bunch of those riffs, programmed all the drums too"

...and then I got all giddy since he replied to me on facebook :P

tosin originally approached me to write a few of the songs on the new album with him, and the idea was i was going to program the drums for those songs, but then navene was going to learn them and give them his own flavor
the only problem is scheduling, i honestly dont know if this will work for either of our schedules based off of their deadline, but if i can, i obviously want to do it, writing with tosin is so much fun!
