Just started listening to AudioSlave today. Why are they not every ones favorite band? The instruments just meld together into one big beautiful sound. And the bass is so much more then a standard time keeping role. I cant think of anyone off the top of my head (keep in mind it IS 3;30 am....) that sounds as much as part of the band as he is. I cant think of the right phrase currently. Mayby saying he is sonically there way more then other bassists. Lead also knows how to really bring out and accent the bass too. Sorry random post by someone who is listening to new music and should of gone to sleep hours ago. P.S. I like their music videos too.
