  1. I disagree wholeheartedly with the claim that Led Zeppelin are the "greatest" act of all time. Hell, they don't even beat very many of the greats in influence (unless you count shi- oops, I mean heavy metal), hell, I've heard more artists cite The Beach Boys as an influence than Zeppelin. Sure, Zeppelin is good (bolding this so no one can say "get out of this forum if you don't like zeppelin (or any such variation)"), and I enjoy them, but the "best" title, is better reserved for acts such as The Beatles (even though I'm not to big of a fan) or The Rolling Stones. At least in rock music.
  2. Thing Stuck Up A Butt - The Lynx-Boys
  3. Can anyone explain to me what the overall appeal of "Exile" is? I mean, yeah, it has a semi-interesting story behind it (though way tooo druggy, even for me), and there are a few good songs "Rocks Off" "Shake Your Hips" "Tumbling Dice" "Sweet Virginia" "Loving Cup" and "Happy", but as a whole, I just don't like the album. I have honestly only been able to sit through the album once - when I first bought it. After that, I may listen to some of the best tracks off it, but I can't put it on as I can Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed, Some Girls, and hell, even It's Only Rock N Roll and Beggars Banquet. The album just seems like an average Stones album, not even their sleaziest.
  4. What the hell is your problem? I'm not always mentioning Dylan. The only times I have mentioned him were in the "Bob Dylan" thread.
  5. That's just Dylan being Dylan. I'm sure the guy didn't mind. I'm sure I wouldn't if I was just a backing musician.
  6. What if I they aren't in my top 5 but I still enjoy them?... My top five is (at the moment) 1. Bob Dylan 2. The Rolling Stones 3. Brian Wilson/The Beach Boys 4. Belle and Sebastian 5. fun.
  7. He is actually really humble..he refused to be called the voice of a generation in the 60s. He's just Dylan, and he's amazingly clever in interviews.
  8. Dylan isn't widely available..hell, I don't even have Dylan. But I don't really want it.
  9. Fun fact: Dylan compares himself to a bird three times throughout Blood On the Tracks.
  10. I just started listening to it, I'm about 4 minutes into "Driftin' Back". Boy did I do a double take when I saw how long this song is. It's good so far though.
  11. Is there a reason you ignored my post?
  12. Don't get: None of the albums. Seriously, get every album from Dylan...it's good for the soul.
  13. Update: Ok, The Bends is pretty damn good.
  14. I've never like CCR...they just don't gel with me. A few of their songs are mildly tolerable, but I just don't dig 'em.
  15. Time Waits For No One - The Rolling Stones
  16. Slow Train Coming - Bob Dylan
  17. Before I read the caption, I thought this was a picture of two of Zep's members in drag!
  18. I did not mean their albums, I ment their songs. Each song just repeats the same "riff" (If you can call it that), and lyrics over and over for about four minutes. I didn't say I've only listened to OK Computer.. Also, you don't buy/own albums from bands you aren't that big of a fan of? That's strange..
  19. I'm going to eat at the delicious Hometown Buffet tonight..
  20. Sigh.. My album review blog is actually going through Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list, one by one, each day, reviewing them. And, I might as well indulge you. These are my personal favorites, and also, what I think were the artist's best. Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers (Close second: Let It Bleed) Van Halen: Van Halen Dylan: Blonde On Blonde (close second: Bring It All Back Home) Yes: Fragile The Who: Who's Next Bowie: Low Sex Pistols: Ehh, they only had one studio album, and it wasn't that great..but, it's the best thing they put out so..Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols Clash: London Calling (Close second: Give 'Em Enough Rope) Deep Purple: Deep Purple III (Close second: Machine Head) Genesis: The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway Jimi Hendrix: Are You Experienced? (Close second: Electric Ladyland) Guns n Roses: Appetite For Destruction ELP: Emerson Lake & Palmer (Close second: Pictures at an Exhibition)
  21. That was the joke.. I don't like either of those artists either. I own all of Radiohead's albums..but, I just can't get into them. Too much repetition.
  22. Here's a question: It's finally time for me to get the Beatles on Itunes, so...what is better the Mono boxset? Or each individual album in Stereo? Both? Are the Capitol volumes in any way necessary?
  23. Wah wah pedal.. PCP or Heroin?
