Specifically to my own situation, I'm still bitter at one of my all time favorite bands, Rush, for their most recent album 'Snakes and Arrows' which I can't stand most of. Like literally, I can't listen to most of the songs for longer than 30 seconds before I angerly skip to the next song...and then skip...and then skip...and then take the CD out in disgust. They did what many bands do, they CHANGED THEIR SOUND and 'Went in a different direction' Why?? What was wrong with the other direction? It worked fine for most of us:arrrh: :mad4: I understand that many bands, and especially Rush, like to keep evolving and don't want to get stuck making the same sounding album over and over again. That's good and I understand why. But this one, with the exception of about three songs, does ZERO for me. NADA. ZIP. ZILCH. Just one dull, monotonus lumbering melodyless hookless tune after another. And as long as I've been a fan of them, that's NEVER EVER happened before. Sure, there's always one or two songs off any particular CD I don't like, but now almost all of them?? And now they're going back out on tour this summer. I'll go, I'll love them anyway, and I'll love the older stuff, but hearing the new songs still makes me want to go on a long bathroom break.
