No, I'm not. Technical virtuosity is valid, but not necessarily worthwhile. A lot of people love displays of skill.

I agree, some people will use technical skill as an excuse for liking a band...

OK, whatever.
I'm really not worked up about the fact that you don't like their music. Lots of people I know don't like their music. To see it as nothing more than a pissing-contest display of chops is to see it in its most one-dimensional sense. I saw your attitude as flip and dismissive, which I still do. However, I am now at the point where I realize there is no way to get you to see what I am trying to get you to see in their aesthetic. Lightning Bolt's audience is not comprised of people who listen to Steve Vai records; they have turned the whole notion of "virtuosity" on its ear. I cannot make you see this, so I'll stop here.

Feel free not to like them, and feel free to continue to be oblivious to their whole aesthetic.
Gorilla? What gorilla?

I cannot make you see the gorilla, and I tried as best I could.

Haha. I'm not saying that they are loved by Vai fans. I get that they are using the Vai formula and "turning it on its head." That just doesn't work. It's still the same horrendous formula.

No problem.
I guess ending on a friendly note is good too, because it's time for me to hit the hay.
It's been fun.

I so agree with you Daycare Nation. I have one of their albums, Hypermagic mountain and these guys have no notion of dynamics : they always play loud
and there's no (de)crescendo in any of their pieces. Rythmically it's also kinda stiff, same tempo all the time, no climaxes at all. It's poor musically, in my mtfking opinion of course.

people who don't don't like lightning bolt would probably be at home at a polite dinner party sipping on a wine glass full of thom yorke's semen.
of course that would be if thom yorke had any balls to produce semen with.

I hear that he has an approximation of balls implanted underneath his microscopic penis.A girl who slept with him told me that they look like a chicken's testicles.
