2. Complicated- Avril Lavigne
3. Thunder- Boys Like Girls
4. Angels On The Moon- Thriving Ivory
5. With or Without You- U2
6. One Tree Hill- U2

"Breakaway" is a good song. Good call.

5. Mwng (B+)
6. Fuzzy Logic (B+)
7. Hey Venus! (B)
8. Phantom Power (B-)
9. Love Kraft (B-)

Their first five albums are all masterpieces in their own way, though I'll admit to Fuzzy Logic being rather inconsistent and just not being in the mood to listen to Mwng that much.
Saying Radiator is SFA's best album is like saying the same thing about the Beach Boys' Today! or Summer Days. Great material, but doesn't show a whole lot of respect for the genius that had yet to fully develop. I'm not going to argue with you and Hipster Frog again about Love Kraft and Phantom Power (the latter could stand to lose a few tracks, I'll agree); they're not what YOU want them to be, which is as weird as the previous albums, but to me the sophistication of the writing and arrangements are still a breath of fresh air compared to the music that was being made at that time. And of course, you overrate the most recent return to weirdness, just like Embryonic. Whatevs.

1. Rings Around The World A+
2. Love Kraft A
3. Guerilla A
4. Phantom Power B+
5. Hey Venus B+
6. Radiator B
7. Mwing B
8. Dark Days, Light Years B
9. Fuzzy Logic B-

I haven't heard The Eagles' "In the City," but I do love the solo Walsh cut from The Warriors.

Make sure you don't overrate or underrate any of their music....best to play it safe and get Laz's opinion first, before you forge one of your own. You don't want your opinion to be wrong.....

To go back to the Eagles business, I don't mean to propagate a cool opinion for the sake of it. My issues with them are nearly the same as they are with a band like Coldplay. Their music doesn't register with me, nor do I think that their views on making music have been much more than capitalistic.

The Rolling Stones can be knocked for continuing to chug along, release new material and tour to the point of irrelevancy, but at least they at some point were relevant creatively.

From that, 5 Stones Tracks that Have Kicked My Ass Lately:

1. Winter
2. Prodigal Son
3. Sweet Virginia
4. Shattered
5. You Got the Silver

Love that #1. Goat's Head Soup is such a strong album (Winter likely my favorite on it as well), and there are times when I'm tempted to put it ahead of Beggar's Banquet, which is more consistent but after Sympathy travels a bit too long on that stripped-down road.

Those b-sides on All For Nothing/Nothing For All are amazing. I'm also a big fan of Date To Church, yet another example of the band's range, and also better than half the songs on Don't Tell A Soul.

No point in arguing with the common sense of Laz.
