Neil cant do one middle section of a dream theater song, the time signature changes, and not that, but what Mike does in those time sigs is nothing but incredible, I mean Going to half time in the middle of a measure, pure genious. And Rush now Is horrible, Rush dont write like they used to. And Dream Theaters music is so advanced on every level, concept albums, Musicians, Song structure. Its all perfect.
dude, peart has some of the most insanely technical grooves youve heard in rock drumming, and rush rarely uses 4/4 time. also, ive heard that rushs newest cd gets back to their roots. i do prefer mike but to say that peart is basic is one of the grossest things ive heard said.
I completely agree. Pert isn't basic by any means. Pert is to rock music as Buddy Rich was to Jazz. In my opinion of course. Portnoy sounds very generic, and he is a complete bore to listen to. Almost everything Portnoy has done, I've heard Simon Phillips play before. It's nothing new. Just like the rest of the Dream Theater band, they constantly try to show off and play as complicated as they can, at the cost of feeling and melody.
