I play bass. I don't know, I enjoy playing Nikolai's bass parts, but I don't think I could play them all the time and never challenge myself.

I play the bass, and I don't really agree with you. I think sometimes they are simple, but they truly serve the purpose of the instrument: Holding the music together. I think you need to realize just how catchy and perfect some of his bass lines are... Is this it, Reptilia, even someday are all beautiful examples of great bass. It's really just preference though I guess.

wow !!
you are crazy!

you've got to be kidding. the basslines he plays kick ass. sometimes it's stripped back and simply root notes which, when played tight as fuck, can be well nice. Other times he goes all over the shop. I can't be assed listing specific songs, but while they may not be the "greatest bass lines of all time", they work perfectly in the sphere of each individual composition.
