What he said. Plus, I can't stand Ozzy's voice.

I voted on Black Sabbath.

I think that "Spiral Architect" is a masterpiece.

WTF? This is like comparing Deep Purple and Queen's Reich, or Uriah Heep and  Fate's Warning. They're worlds (and generations) apart. What's the point?

Any argument to explain your point of view ? King's X produced some of the best hard-rock ever. Dream Theater are a landmark band in the realm of prog metal.  Albums like 'Images and words' and 'Awake' are true masterpieces. Yes, they show off a lot but there is also melody in their music.

What I have heard by King's X was very good (the first two albums so far), though I have some trouble in seeing their relation to Prog (have to listen more carefully, that's for sure). However, Black Sabbath are by far one of the most influential bands ever, and at least one of their albums features in my all-time favourites list (Heaven and Hell, in case you were wondering). So, I'm afraid there is really no contest here for meWink.

King's X self-titled album, 'faith hope love', 'gretchen goes to nebraska' and 'XV' are all 4-5 stars albums. I have to give another chance to 'dogman' as it is often regarded as one of their best.
Beatles playing bluesy hard-rock.
I don't really see the connection with Black Sabbath.

Yeah, that era of Sabbath was kind to Ozzy. Too bad it wasn't kind to...anyone else in Black Sabbath. I've said it before. It is a sad, sad day when my favorite part of a Black Sabbath album is Ozzy's vocal delivery...

I've read words like mine referring to DT about 200 times in just a month....
 
believe me... I give the same damn about what people say about my favorite band as people should give about what I think of their favorite band.
 
So I'll say what I want. I'm done with certain ways here.

King's X is as dull and boring a band as I've ever heard... It's not even bad... or terrible... it's just the musical description of plain, bland.... nothingless described....
