Then say that it's unnecessary and explain why as you've done. You seem like the type that knows the technicalities of music... however, there's no need to call the guy a "pretentious douchebag," 'cause that's simply insulting. If one doesn't like the music, fine. To each his/her own, that affects me in no way. But is there really any point in calling people names? I mean, if that's why you truly enjoy doing... then by all means. Besides, if i truly like the band, then I do believe that reading negative words would affect me. If I truly didn't like them, then I'd be apathetic, no? But when one of my favorite drummers is called a "douchebag," yeah, that's gonna evoke some emotions.

I enjoy getting on forums and such to read what other people think, I don't care if their opinions match up with mine as long as they're being respectful. Anyway, I'm not really hear to police people's thoughts. What's said is said.... I just had to make a comment about your previous post, is all.

And just to not get totally off track XD. I'm very much looking forward to 2011. In case you hadn't realized, I am a fan of Laruku's. So 2011 can't come any slower. Can't wait to see what the guys have planning.... and I'm also anxiously awaiting some music from their solo projects - especially ken's.



It's just a spontaneous remark. "Prententious douchebag" is nothing compared to the shit my favorite music genre has been taking for the past 40 years. Oh well, you can keep defending your lack luster drummer instead while people like Morgan Gren keep flying under the radar despite his amazing technicality and polyrhythmic finesse, it just shows how people have no eyes and ears for real talent anymore:

I never actually did say anything to defend Yukihiro besides saying that he's one of my favorite drummers... nor have I compared him to, or shot, anybody else down. The entire point of my previous posts have been trying to emphasize the whole "respect" thing. I know there's much worse said about this band and other bands as well. The worlds full of jerks... but is there really a need to join those who are being facetious by making said spontaneous remarks? Anyways, who knows... maybe this was what you were after, to get somebody to refute, to get a reaction.

BTW, if people have no eyes and ears for real talent anymore that clip would not be nearing the quarter of a mil mark for viewings. And the reason why I like my "lack luster" drummer isn't because of just his drumming, it's the ensemble of the band that makes them enjoyable to listen for me. Don't you worry, they're not the *only* band I listen to - so don't go insinuating that I've no eyes and ears for real talent. Likability is subjective anyways.

You sure are putting in quite a bit of effort into a a thread about an overrated band with a sucky drummer. And done, I've no more words - I highly doubt that this conversation will have you changing the ways you like to word things...

---

As for their hiatus, the break is only suppose to be for live shows. There's still a possibility of them releasing new music w/in the next three years. ^_^ If anything, we'll at least have their solo projects to listen to.

I saw some of their PVs the other day. I still don't get why the drummer needs a double bass drum set when he can't even do at least 200 bpms on them. Hell, he doesn't even reach 130bpm at all whereas other drummers can do that on a single bass drum set. Talk about pretentious douchebag. Oh and overrated band is overrated.


Dude, the drummer is no Buddy Rich, and I'm not saying he's great, but calling the band overrated just shows how much of a dick you are being. L'arc~en~ciel has been making music for a while, and all of there stuff has managed to be good and nothing generic like all that other crap that has been being pumped out.

From http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9xbdXeYiW8 to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SddtnK48RFY which included a switch of style, they have always stayed good, and they even do Punk~en~ceil where they all switch positions (and still sound fantastic). No, there guitarist is not Eddie Van Halen, no, there bassist is not Victor Wooten, but that doesn't mean there shit. Not EVERYBODY has to be a god at there instrument to be any good, some shit just sounds good the way it is. You don't see people telling BB King to speed the fuck up.

You say you want him to speed drum, but you know how shitty that would sound? What the hell do you think Laruku is, thrash metal?

Gawd dude that was repetitive, the guitar line sucked and the drumming was ok, honestly I don't know why you would bash a dude randomly then say that guy is going under the radar...he's not that great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgeX9iYOFSQ
