I absolutely adore this band, so this is something I've been trying to ignore for the past decade or so, but Steve's bass playing has really underwhelmed me since AMOLAD. 99% of the time he just plays the root note or follows the riff exactly, and while that's obviously his prerogative and all the more for him playing what makes him happy and comfortable, I really miss his melodic fills high up the neck and enjoyable little counter melodies and lead runs.

Even The Red and The Black was just some uninspired bass power chords.

I have nothing but utmost respect and admiration for him, but I've just found his playing so underwhelming and uninspiring as of late.
