Re: The Who possibly greatest live band ever at their peak?

I'd say The Who's live peak would have been 1969-1971... basically the era encompassing Woodstock, Live at Leeds, Who's Next etc., although Quadrophenia is my favourite album of theirs. Keith Moon was a great drummer when he was on form, but was capable of some terrible playing.

Re: 2 versions of UB40 oh dear how sad.

UB40 fit firmly into the musical category marked "not my thing", and as I understand it pretty much every dedicated reggae fan I've ever known has considered them to be a really woeful example of the genre. I'd rather put WD40 onto my turntable, to be honest.

Worst song on Coup De Crap / Coup Disgrace

So many of these polls have obvious answers, so I thought I'd make a legitimately difficult one.

Well? :grin:

Re: Bands with just 1 decent album

The Manics have released about five or six great albums to my mind, and none of 'em are Generation Terrorists.

Re: Bands with just 1 decent album

Probably one of the biggest sources of income on the record post 1990 was Elastica's Waking Up :lol: Jim I remember seeing that on Top of the Pops with Damon Albarn guesting on keyboards (I think he played on the album as well) and I couldn't believe how blatant it was!

Re: Bands with just 1 decent album

Elastica spring to mind. One of the best debuts by a young band in the '90s, their second and final album was a sorry thing indeed.

Re: Bands with just 1 decent album

I disagree with all of you and I'd say that the only R.E.M. album I don't like is Around the Sun. I like Fables of The Reconstruction and Life's Rich Pageant. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk I actually quite lie 'Around The Sun' (songs were much better live). However, my favourite REM album is...

Re: Bands with just 1 decent album

Propaganda - A Secret Wish. Interesting that Jim has picked REM because I'd be tempted to nominate "Green" over "Document". Yup, and I'd say Murmur and Reckoning piss over anything else REM ever did :lol: I disagree with all of you and I'd say that the only R.E.M. album I don't like is Around the S...
