while i was done with halftime core... like, in 1999.... there are still some that put a potentially interesting interpretation out there... (even if it's just taking halftime core and turning it into quartertime zelda core.....) then fuck it all up with the an absolutely zero-talent roar core vocal....
uh, what is a core?

For some reason I could never really get into Danza. I guess I prefer chord melodies and such instead of the extreme music competition.

Not only that but it's deliberately dissonant and jarring. Lots of counterpoint and dischordant pieces that aren't too friendly on the senses. Actually, exactly why I love it. :lol:

Also, big ups to Josh for essentially doing a job that'd be heavy fucking lifting even for two dudes, muchless one.

I see. I guess I haven't actually given them a fair chance and really analyzed the music, I just gave up on most songs halfway through. Perhaps I will have to give a whole album a listen, no guarantees that I will like it though.

The third album is a little more coherent than the two previous but they're definitely an acquired taste, regardless.

Really? I'm the biggest Danza whore on here probably, but I do not like the new album as much as Danza II. Every song is just chun chun tappity tappity tappity chun tappity and it's a bit bland.

I Am Sammy Jenkis is a great song, but Meshuggah called - they want the main riff from "Spasm" back. :lol:

Still a great album, but not as inspired or as tech as The Electric Boogaloo.

"Rollin' and tumblin on Satan's rotisserie!"

I didn't like electric boogaloo too much. Two much random bs between songs and not enough face melting. I'd comment on the music, but all I remember from that album is some shit about a a short ******* in a bar.

:lol: They seem like cool guys, and I like what they're trying to do and all... detuned version of Dillinger or whatever, but like someone said to one of their "in the studio" vids:

"Awesome, I can't wait until these guys write a song, it's gonna rule!!!" :rofl:

Forgetting Stitches knock earlier :)squint:), I think I Am Sammy Jankis is probably what a DANZA "song" sounds like. The part work is actually laid out pretty cleanly and the song has a little more structure to it. I actually thought DANZA III had a few songs on it like that. versus Boogaloo which was... well, it was sorta hard for me to put get a grip on at first.

Structure is irrelevant. This sort of music doesn't have choruses, so why do you need recurring verse/chorus structure?

The Electric Boogaloo was less a concept album, more just a collection of some kickass songs a relatively young band and thrown together. The ******* stuff was just a cool way to make it stand out, and funny as hell.

Songs like "Carroll 14 Wossman 7" are ridiculously tech, beautifully crafted. Sure the structure is a bit odd but it loses nothing for that. I don't see anyone knocking Between the Buried and Me for not having 'structure'. "Ad A Dglgmut" and "Mordecai" and "Selkies: The Endless Obsession" don't have a recurring structure but people still love those songs. Or is it because they have nice singy bits? :nuts:

Edit: Someone's deleted "Layne's Hand Job". :(

Anyway:



Almost identical. :lol:

And no, "I Am Sammy Jankis" is not what a typical Danza song sounds like. It's what all the other songs off Danza III sound like. Stuff before then had completely different members, two (different) guitarists, and a different playing style. Josh came in, dropped the tuning to an eight string and unleashed tappity tappity.

I'm not knocking it, I'm just saying that the new album is a "big" departure from Danza II if you were a big fan of them.

I was just referring to it for the sake of people who claim they don't like them because their songs lack structure or they just sound like a mess. These days, my favorite tune by Danza is probably Carrol -- Wossman.

Fuck, I listen to Portal for christ sake. I'm not bothered by abstract. These are simply recommendations for people who are.
