My idea of hell is listening to a Primus album the whole way through.

Hope this helps

Thats just your preference Urban... But some people (like me) prefer music where bass plays a more than minor role over repetitive britpop crap where any form of originality is forbiddon.

See: Oasis.

If that was for me... If the song is centred around the bass, it's in context.
i.e; not being flash for the sake of it.
I'm agreeing with you.

But if it's a brilliant "bass solo" which adds nothing...it's bollocks.

Yeah but Oasis for all their faults write memorable songs which to me is far more important.

You ever been in a pub with about 200 people and they`ve all started singing a Primus song in unison?

Thought not.

side note that's kind of relevant. I play tuba in concert and marching band and I hate composeurs who give the bass line straight stacato notes. Music is suppose to be interesting and complex parts make music interesting.

That includes me, although I do love Britpop too.

I think that melody and rhythm should be shared, giving the song texture. Not always guitar guitar guitar. Balance is a wonderful thing
