My name is Fez;2188349 said:Random opinion that I'm sure will give me a lot of flak: I listened to Loveless finally and didn't really care for it. Not a bad record, just, nothing about it really captured my interest and it seems like it went over my head.Of course, I've only listened to it once, I'm definitely going to give it another listen before I pass a full judgement on it.
instantdeath999;2188489 said:Watching the video for Toby Keith's "How do you like Me Now?", I just can't shake the urge to want to stab him in the eye. I haven't even heard Courtesy of the Red White and Blue. Maybe it should stay that way.
Alright_Computer;2188553 said:Loveless isn't something that grabs you on the first listen or anything, it grows on you. It's more of an atmospheric record than anything, not necessarily meant to be background music but definitely atmospheric.God. Toby Keith is one of my LEAST FAVORITE PEOPLE EVER. If I hear that damn song "Courtesy of the Red White And Blue" song one more time I think I'm going to put a boot up his ass for offering such a shortsighted and bigoted view on America.I'd go more in-depth, but this isn't really the place.
instantdeath999;2188581 said:The video I was watching was pretty bad too. It's about a girl he liked in high school, and now that he is famous, he gloats like a jackass, saying that she could have been rich, and if she still remembers him now that he if famous. The video ends with him driving off in his limo.What a douche.

My name is Fez;2188741 said:Well, hell, while we're on the subject, what kind of music is Waits? And no videos plz. I'm at work with no sound. Just, kind of a general idea of the style, and maybe some similar artists or something to give me an idea.
a21schizoidman;2188771 said:depends on what point in his career, he's done everything from blues to soft rock to experimental rock
Fizzeler;2188777 said:I mostly listen to his blues and jazz stuff will listen to his experimental stuff later
Rockbandfan23467;2188682 said:I used to like country (ie: the bad kind ie: Toby) but I won't pick up Toby.It'd be funny if he were on the same setlist as the Dixie Chicks. I'm not the only one who gets that...right?
