I don't talk about the "majority". I talk about devoted metalheads, true music fans, and some that "dissect" music like you seem to do! People that listen to underground stuff, not just Metallica or Maiden! Fuck Vanilla Ice. This has nothing to do with this. Same for Trump.
Yes it does. It has everything to do with that. It's about standards. Too many people at the Priest shows only come alive during Breaking the Law, Living after Midnight, You Got Another Thing Coming. But it's like that at any show. Majority likes the hits. That's all they know. Underground majority, which is supposed to be more discerning, will eat anything as long as it "pleases the fans", ie: formula. Most people thought Resurrection was not a half-assed calculated manipulation and insult to us, but instead a "return
to form". I was appalled at that clumsy masquerade. Majority, even the "underground" majority, thought Firepower was return to the glory days. When I point out it sounds like a paint-by-numbers formulated attempt on "giving the fans what they want" I'm usually accused of being a cynical downer, but more than that-people take it personally and get very defensive, because ultimately to them by undermining their delight I'm questioning their judgement and intelligence. That's right, I am. Won't make me any new friend, but honesty and truth are not very popular commodities among shiny happy people. I get to be honest and keep the old ones, and that's what matters.
I'm glad to be able to discuss with one of the few "elite" members of the metal crew, one with the higher standards, and who has a superior judgement and intelligence! LOL!
It's nice to know you have such a high opinion of yourself vs the others. But also sad at the same time. Guess that makes me glad to not be in your inner circle of friends cause I really don't like elitists...

Now back to playing some shitty paint-by-numbers and insulting stuff like Firepower and Resurrection, in your honor! LOL.

BTW, I know one guy which is quite like you. A long-time metal fan who dissects everyting he hears, and also a former musician. Far to be a close friend for evident reasons explained above. And even him, who thinks 99% of the people are inferior to his highness, loved Firepower!
I have a very good friend who is now a music teacher and has played several instruments from an early age, and yeah he's a bit like Von. I remember when I was in high school and I brought over Master of Puppets to his house. I was bragging about the drumming and he completely hated it for what now are pretty obvious reasons. Back then I thought Lars was amazing, but wtf did I know. I still love Master of Puppets but Metallica and other bands have released stuff can't stand that others salivate over. Do I criticize them? Hell yeah. Does it mean you can't enjoy them? Of course not. Just don't be that guy that loves the shitty solo and complain when someone points out it is a shitty solo lol.
