All artists repeat themselves, to greater or lesser extents. Most blues sounds very similar to me, and I think even fans would acknowledge that it does, yet there are musicians who spend their entire lives playing the blues, exploring the many variations on a time-tested form. I think if you expect any musician to do something completely different on every album, you've missed the point.
Neither do I really appreciate the implication that I'm a "brainless fanboy who swallows everything Vai plays." There are many Vai songs I don't particularly care for, and many that I love.
I've been reading this forum for a while, even though I haven't posted much, but I can already tell you have a real problem respecting other people's opinions. I'm already over it.
I said I'M not a brainless fanboy, there was no implication there, you saw what you wanted to see.
So...I have a problem respecting other people's opinions?
I gave my opinion.
YOU came to contradict it saying "I'm new here, but I have to say I really don't understand the people who don't like this album. I can understand a member of the general population not liking it, but for someone who is already a Vai fan, I'm not sure what could be disappointing about this album."
In other words YOU don't understand why I don't like this album.YOU don't respect my opinion.YOU replied to my reply, it wasn't me who did that.
So read this thread again and you'll see who came to reply against my tastes.
And again I said I'M not a brainless fanboy, I was refering to myself and not you cause I don't know you.
Well I'm being civil(I hope so), I came here and ONLY gave my opinion about an album.That guy came and said he can't understand my opinions.
I did nothing wrong(I hope so again), he can't understand my opinions but said I have a problem with other opinions.
That's insanity lol.
