"I'd lose that Casio in the background."
"The organ's ruining it. Ah! You lost me. Goodbye, everybody!"
"This is really sucking!"
"I'd have the bus pull away before the organ player got in."
"Go back to Spandau Ballet!"
"They just missed being good."

Ha I totally saw that reaction coming. I was definitely amused, but I love Awake, so that was also kind of hard to hear.

LOL--his opinions are all over the place and aimed mostly at humor---he likes Yes and they have been on his show but the early Bruford era---he loves "metal" but his favorite station on Sirius is Coffee House---mellow versions of songs.

Howard Stern...one of the most opinionated f**ks around, but he is a very funny man.
His Dream Theater synopsis is very typical for a how most people don't put serious time, thought of even concentration for that matter into the music they are listening to, especially sophisticated PROG no less!


I found this funny anyway and I know that was mainly the point. Howard gets paid millions of dollars to cast out humorous and vulgar opinions on any noun with in Planet Earth.

So how about that organist, Howard?
The Ironic thing is that Kevin Moore has more talent in his middle finger than in Howard's entire lanky, Jerry curl-permed out body. Gotta love it.
If you have sensitive and analytical sound equipment quality after market audio interconnects/cables make a HUGE difference in overall sound quality...Wider soundstage, reduced microphonics etc etc..

Howard is Howard and I don't know the names of his lackeys (do they even deserve names?) so I am not surprised he didn't have the wherewithal or yarbles to give the band half a chance. He's such a w**ker. Sometimes I find him amusing but never really funny. Mostly though, I find him idiotic.

I can't help suspecting that a lot of critics use this 'Stern Method' of evaluating bands and albums. I'm pretty sure Rolling Stone employs it.
I like the music of any era, regardless of when it was made.

Hi,
 
Wait a minute!
 
I can't believe that you llisten to this goon talk about any kind of music and take him seriously.
 
The only opinions he has that make sense and sound right are the ones about T & A, but that is not open for discussion here in this board!
 
Lose him! There is better music out there than anything he will ever mention or care about!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, instead of paying for a guru or church or social program!

Being fair or to be a critic of music one must put forth some conservative effort to immerse themselves in the music they are listening to. This can be done by way of headphones or simply finding a quiet place to listen to the music on your own.
I wonder if mr. Perm put on some cans and listen to say, space Dye Vest that he would just refer to Kevin. Moore as the annoying organist? I don't think he wound, but then again maybe Howi would not make it to the last track on the album.
In any case. I don't think what I said was pretentious at all. Condescending yes, but not pretentious.

These are great. Thank you. Had a pretty good laugh.
Also, I will simply say that what Jon said about Magic Mushrooms is absolutely true.
That is all.

i was mainly aiming at this part though; as if there is some special property you must have to appreciate "sophisticated PROG"
but then again, that may not be what you meant at all, in which case i apologize
