the ultimate coming together of musical expression?
it just makes the bands more pompous and over the top
that's what it's all about
about rock bands with overbearing strings in their music to make up for a lack of ideas. I was thinking about albums though (where I find it REALLY irritating, see: Puzzle)
Not sure where I stand on it live, will plough through the tube links...
that adding - sometimes doubling - the layers of orchestration would not be a lack of ideas, more an attempt at ambition.
not all the time obviously. see also: feeder.
you would boo england.
what do you mean by "ambition"?
to writing songs for 8+ people
tell me you get how that has ambition...
it often comes accross as the band playing the song exactly as they would have done, and getting 'real' musicians in to make it more adult.
it being done properly. and not.
it's hardly a revolution.
"Delusions of grandeur"
(However, the KISS one is acceptable, for obvious reasons)
although it's rare that bands can pull it off without sounding too pompous. only bands of a certain stature can do it i think.
