    Agreed, 100%.

    The thing with that is, on record all you got is the vocals, the instruments and the tunes. So, if the tunes themselves aren't quite there - as was the case for about half the Skyscraper album - Dave's patter and Vai's guitar wizardry were only gonna go so far in terms of covering up deficiencies in the songwriting far as the studio stuff went. Live, different story.

    As someone that has dabbled a little in the songwriting thing sometimes you don't even know which are the best ones and you definitely don't know why.

    Q: Why is Yankee Rose so much better than Knucklebones?
    A: It just is.

    Let's not forget the drums which are shit which sucks the energy out of it. And before someone jumps into defend Rick Allen, remember he is a multi millionaire wife beating dangerous driver. Plus even if he had all his arms I doubt he would have been allowed to play on the album anyway.


    Q: What do you get if you take this



    slow it down and combine it with We Will Rock You?
