The Cure for me.

Maybe it is an age thing but I just never took to LZ - outside of about 3 songs I couldn't name anything by them.

Whole Lotta Love
Kashmir
Stairway to Heaven

Out of those 3 only Kashmir holds any interest to me.

Maybe I should dig in and see what the fuss is about....just never felt inclined to so far.

My analysis is thus: the cure wrote 4 superb LPís and a splash of great songs splashed across the rest of their lengthy discography. Those albums are:

17 Seconds
Faith
Pornography
Disintegration

Led Zep wrote 4 superb LPís, starting with the first, and ending with the fourth.

To say the cure cast a bigger shadow over the culture is wrong. To say the cure had a better drummer, guitar player or bass player is wrong. To say to cure had a better singer is wrong. To say the cure are more iconic is wrong. I am not sure if LZ were a better live band as I havenít seen them live.

The cure are a great band. But theyíre not in the same league as LZ.

I don't think anyone can be "wrong" when it comes to their appraisal of music or what is "better" etc.

It is subjective and individual.

We can agree and disagree and that is all part of the fun - but it is, always has been and always will be to each their own.

Maybe sometimes when going to town so to speak, it might just be helpful to drop in a in my view/to me etc type comment - it makes the point a bit more palatable, especially when you get into what is 'good' and 'bad' as regularly and as passionately as you like to.

But of course that is just my opinion....

Well, if folk canít work out my - or anyone elseís - opinion is subjective then Iím not sure how else to proceed without using IMHO at the beginning of each post going forward.

What part of "sometimes" are you struggling with?

You are an intelligent lad - work out when it may be appropriate - or don't of course - it is at the end of the day up to you.

I just feel you may end up in less conflict if you did.

But as i say that is just my opinion and of course you may not wish to end up in less conflict.

End of day - your call - no big deal.

This really shouldnít be a contest. Zeppelin and itís not close.

You should do a deep dive on Zep. They are blues based rock band which isnít typically up your alley, but like the Stones (who it seems youíve started to take a bit of interest in) they arenít a 1 trick pony. Physical Graffiti is right up there with the best albums ever and has some songs that arenít your typical rock tunes, yet are excellent.

I'll give them a go - there must be a reason they are so revered - so i'll give it a try and see.

But often i find with these sort of thigs st times we are hard wired to just not connect with some stuff - would be like you taking a deep dive with radiohead!

But fuck it - i enjoy music and have sod all to lose from giving it a go and might just gain something!
