Can we please stop complaining about the complaining?


:) :)

I can’t believe you’re complaining about this right now.

And yacht rock is now a subject of two threads.

What the hell is yacht rock?

Most people throw the term out like it is an insult to be considered part of that style, but not everything has to ROCK to be good.



They renamed '70's soft rock?  Why?  Never understood the need to file everything down.  The bigger umbrella the better.

I only just heard it from a 90s kid about 2 months ago.   But I thought it was so freakin hilarious and perfect that it just stuck.   

There's even a YT comedy series that makes fun of it.  Pretty freakin hilarious.

I think it's less about "labels" than it is the desperate, undying need to be hip and snarky about EVERYTHING.

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

You may be right. I may be crazy.

Hey everyone!  The Yes thread has been quiet lately, so it's time to bring it back.
 I was wondering what is your favorite Yes era?  Many prefer the classic era, but I really like the Trevor Rabin era. Especially towards the end with the TALK album.
I just purchased a dvd of the TALK Tour filmed in Santiago Chile and it is pretty fantastic! It's easily the best footage of that era that I've come across. I saw them on that tour at The Gorge and is still by far the best Yes experience I've ever had. Trevor Rabin brings alot more energy to the band and that's when Yes was at their peak in 1994. :coolio
You can do a lot in a lifetime if you don't burn out too fast, you can make the most of the distance, first you need endurance first you've got to last....... NP
