    Best drum intro ever [2]

  • purcy

    This song somehow manages to be understated and ass-kicking at the same time. One of the highlights of their last good album.

    Intro riff sounds like Pantera's Pre-Hibernation song from Spongebob.

    One of my favorite's. I love how this album was mixed. The bass and the drums sound pulverizing.

    The dialogue sample about the regret comes from the 1999's film Magnolia: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0175880/quotes

    Bad riffs stolen from some KROQ-style nu-metal garbage and James LaBrie rapping. This song is the one they should have titled "A Nightmare to Remember".

    This song means a lot to me. I never knew my real father becasue he was a coward and ran away from me, the child he had during high school. He threw his life away to drugs before I was even 2, and now he wants to meet me when I'm 16 and he's walking around on crutches from alcoholism. Ever since I was 3 or 4, I've had a stepfather who plays their part as a stepfather and is just cruel to everyone in the family. He truly cares, unlike in this song, but they're is so much pent up anger in me and him at each other.

    Good song - emotional, angry lyrics and a terrific riff to go with it - but James is just awful in this. Not a good vocalist for this type of music.

    I love how the chorus is presented, the lyrics and the heavy riff over it make it sound pretty aggressive.

    So where do the samples come from? The last couple pieces "when your own blood renounces you, it's time to renounce them" comes from the series Oz, season 3 ep 5 near the end, but I cant track the others. PM me if you know... tnx

    James LaBrie is an awful singer at the best of times, but seriously, what possessed him to RAP? =/
