title says all:
Groovy shit as usual
Loving what Wes's doing here
Wes at his best again, I missed that a little. The song itself is...interesting to say the least. And yep, still don't like Durst.
Awesome djent riffing!
Lyrics are terrible, but there are one or two cool riffs.
Can't get into the vocals but the music itself sounds tight as hell. Love Wes's riffs and his tone. They get a bad rap as a band but musically they are one of the tightest and most original sounding musicians I think.
Yeah, I always felt that way too. I personally don't like Durst's style but all the other bandmembers are talented as heck. Wes being one of my main influences when it comes to guitars. They pack a nice goddamn groove everytime.
Oh and well, Durst does seem to have some talent, he deals with haters like no other. And oh boy does he have a lot of haters.
This. I hate Durst and his wanna-be rapping, but the music is pretty badass.
Wasn't Fred originally a guitarist in the band? I don't know if I'm getting them confused with someone else.
Like, super very briefly in the beginning. Wes joined because Fred couldn't play.
Normally, as much as Fred's persona/personality is mostly just silly and is always the weakest link in the chain, its still fairly competent in its delivery and tone. This song really confuses me though. He's off time and off-key for a good 95% of the song. It feels weird to say that I actually miss his old vocal style compared to this. The lyrics are poorly constructed, usually he's actually fairly clever but I just can't get into these even a little.
Aside from that, the music is really well done. I've always said that if Wes, John and Sam were an instrumental trio, they'd be one of my all-time favourite groups.
The influence of Lil Wayne on Durst is apparent, I'd say. Durst gave a great interview in last month's Metal Hammer. His big regret was how his music was jumped on by the kind of people it was designed as a shield from, seemingly.
Anyway, this is real 5am music. They've gone with what felt right, usually these kinds of performances get deleted the next day, but they have merit if they are meaningful to the performers. Odd structure, not as much fun as most LB, but interesting stuff, no doubt, pretty weird!!
Fred Durst is the king of butt.
tbh, I don't mind this, the music is hella tight as has been stated, but the vocals remind me more of the 3 Dollar Bill era, which for me is cool cause I love that album, esp Counterfeit and Indigo Flow
Can't stand the Lil Wayne flow, sucks cause the potential is there
Dat middle period of the song, on all levels, fantastic, hoping it is a good taste of what is due to come!
Well, its better than I thought it would be... But it is three distinctly different musical ideas smashed together into one "song." I don't think that musically (the vocals and lyrics are absurd and a detriment to the music) any of the ideas are bad, and I like the atmosphere from the "bridge" forward. With that said, I think all of the ideas subtract from one another on account of them sharing literally no common ground.
I think I'm confused?
Agree, sounds like a mixtape. I don't mind that, actually.
The song screams prog in one sense, but yeah, I was looking for the right term for Durst's "rapping" there. Lil' Wayne flow, that's it. I mean, no flow at all = Lil' Wayne flow. It all makes sense now.
Sorry, but Freds Lil Wayne inspired grinding nails on a chalk board vocals completely kill this. No flow at all, like its fighting the music. Fred must be outta people to bite off of.
It's a shame that Wes, Jon, and Sam have not left Durst behind and went on to much better things under a different name and another vocalist. Guess they must actually like the guy, or maybe just the money?
