like the idea of a little more gang vocals and electric sounds like in
Serpentine and Deciever (it had a little bit of it in the chorus if you
listen and I love it). Definitely like the idea of acoustic gituars
mixed in with it; that'd be awsome. YEAH more bass solos- John just rocks
on em! More wicked guitar solos would be awsome, but most of Danny's
solos are wicked in their own 'Dan Donegan' way, you know? :)
are fun, would like to see what they can turn into their own, but is it
just me or do they seem to pick a cover for their album on every other
record? It's just what I've noticed in the current pattern right now.
to see a little bit more of those, but who knows what they'll come up
with next. I'll still love their next album, no matter what they do.
Actually, pretty much every album, except Believe. Granted, the covers don't always make
the album, but they're always recorded for
The Sickness - Shout2000
Ten Thousand Fists - Land of Confusion
Indestructible - Midlife Crisis
Asylum - Ishfwilf & Living After Midnight
I've got no doubt we'll hear our share of covers throughout Disturbed's career
As for what I want from the next album... Hmmmm....
For one, less "storytelling" and more of the concept shit from The Sickness and Believe. Go for interpretive meaning, opposed to literal. I've missed the contrived sense of charm that can be derived from the early records because of this. Nowadays Disturbed songs simply take themselves a bit too seriously. If you appreciate Down With the Sickness, you know what I mean. The song was serious in its own right, but it also just has this silliness about it. Most of the early stuff did, but that's the best example.
Well, ever since Ten Thousand Fists (arguably even Believe, in some songs), that's been pretty much gone. Replaced by technical prowess in the musicianship and melodies. A mix of both would be much appreciated.
I would also like to see a few less guitar solos. They were great in Ten Thousand Fists, but it seemed as though they had a lot of growing to do. That was achieved in Indestructible, where they came out in full force, and they were good, and they were relevant to the song, and enhanced its vibe. But I felt they had little place in Asylum. It was good in Remnants, to establish the album's mood that way. But, to me, many of the songs could have gone without (and some even could have benefited from the lack of) guitar solos. The immediate example that pops into my head is 3, in which I felt the guitar solo could have been removed or replaced with something else.
I'll think of more and post again later. This is all I got right now, it being 1:30 AM.
