Why I Stopped listening to Dream Theater
Used to love their music. Scenes from a Memory was awesome. Although Portnoy's drumming could get a little overpowering at times.

However, I made the mistake of, go ahead and laugh, watching a Dragonball Z movie on tv once. Guess what the fight music was? The music from SFAM. Totally ruined the sound for me. I couldn't listen to them again without thinking "cartoon music". Just killed it for me.

Kind of like hearing "Gold Dust Woman" in a cellphone commercial.

Well, they do write cartoon music. Take a look at the Systematic Chaos record. The song that bookends the album, In The Presence of Enemies, is a song based on some Korean comic book. Doesn't make the music bad but it does make for some cringe-worthy lyrics.

Guitar World magazine interviewed MASTODON's Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher for its November 2006 issue. An excerpt from the chat follows:

Guitar World: Let me posit something: You guys definitely have prog elements to your sound, and yet you're exciting and valid — you're cool. Why do you think you're cooler than a band like, say, DREAM THEATER?

Hinds: "Because we don't have a little Chinese girl playing bass! [laughs]"

Guitar World: Yikes!

Hinds: "And they dress all gay, too. I mean, look at them: they wear those cheesy leather pants. The lead singer especially: he's got that really gay thing going on with his hair. Plus, he sings like a fricking opera singer and shite. Their hair, their clothes, their music...They're gay."

Guitar World: Now, wait a second. Are you calling DREAM THEATER a "Brokeback" band? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Hinds: "No, I don't mean 'gay' like that. I just mean...gay. [laughs]"
