I got a CD-R of Wonderful Rainbow...I give it about 2 stars....kind of annoying, crappy, devoid of substance. I know there are some fans in here...If you like, we can exchange negative rep.

Annoying? Crappy? There's plenty of substance there.

Like how? In that they repeat the same phrases endlessly, or ruin any good chord progression by destroying it with senseless noise?

i dont like their music, the drums are really annoying. Its good that they realize that they sound like classic rock though, that makes them better than black dice.

I never heard Black Dice, but read that they were very pointless. Lightning Bolt sounds like heavy metal to me, or Joe Satriani, plus a bunch of senseless noise that is counterintuitive to what pleases the ear.

that's called a chorus...it doesn't repeat endlessly. There is this one part in Wonderful Rainbow where they repeat the same three notes for two minutes.

They aren't a band based on chord progression and some songs on wonderful rainbow, like 2 towers for instance, repeat the same phrases a lot but that's just how that album was. To call them sucky though? They're one of the only bands i've seen and heard of that can have an entire room packed with people on their feet dancing, 80 percent of those people not even able to see the band. It's about the live experiance.

i love Lightning Bolt. i've never listened to Wonderful Rainbow, but i think Hypermagic Mountain is the best driving album of all time.

I haven't seen them live, but if the album can't compare to the live experience it's not worth it. I read some comments comparing them to jazz? Maybe that's why I don't like it...I think most jazz is boring...although honestly Lightning Bolt sounds more like heavy metal to me.

i take it that you're not a fan of heavy metal? (should that sentence have a question mark at the end?)

i've never seen them live (although i really really want to) but i've read that it's fucking crazy.

One of the best experiances of my life. Probably the only time I could give two shits about other peoples' sweat dripping on me because I was probably doing the same to them. It was really intense.

I like Sabbath and some other things, but the kind of metal that Lightning Bolt reminds me of I don't like...I'm talking about that guitar virtuoso-type of metal which is all about technical ability and how fast the guitarist can play arpeggios, etc.

Lightning Bolt are one of the few bands who know how to use noise in an interesting way. The sound is very full. Chippendale is a wonderful drummer and Gibson can play bass very uniquely (due to his set up).
Wonderful Rainbow is one of the best noise albums made.

I put Hypermagic Mountain in my Top Ten albums of '05 last year. I wouldn't say they are sucky, but they aren't "all that" either --to the extent that they are discussed here at this forum anyways. As far as newer bands go, they are one of the best. Ultimately, I wouldn't go to far out of my way to defend them from the charge of "Thou Suck!" though.

Certainly, Black Dice aren't sucky; they have lots of sounds & ample substance if you know their catalogue.

Senseless noise: Wolf Eyes, Hair Police, glitch noise (don't know anymore band names, don't care to)
