Joachim, I just listened to you at https://soundcloud.com/joachim-mahoudeaux. Are you kidding me, man??? Shame on you. You have no ground to stand on for criticism. And Josh, I’m guessing you have even less to back up what you write. If you guys don’t understand or appreciate the complexities of jazz music, and you don’t like pop–that’s fine. But don’t bash DL just because they’re operating over your heads.

Once, there was this guy named Chick Corea, and he started this this little group in the 70s called Return to Forever. So this Chick guy, he eventually found these guys named Al DiMeola and Stanley Clarke, and they like, combined their ultra-wicked technical jazz writing and playing with rock music. Are you following me on this? Probably not.

It’s refreshing to see some YOUNG, talented musicians on the modern pop scene who actually have some CHOPS. Reharmonization/chord subs are hip as shit! And it’s not just studio BS–these guys are doing it LIVE, too! I love that my 8 & 6 year-olds are begging me to listen to more of this, and I actually feel good about it, because it’s not just your typical, mindless fluff. With DL, they’re getting different modes, mixed & complex meter, atypical harmony… and imagine this–the guys who wrote it–ARE ACTUALLY PLAYING IT!

Bottom line–If you are a player/writer and you’re bashing DL, you probably suck.
