I've heard all of Zeppelin I-IV and the stuff on the Latter Days greatest hits collection. But other than that, none. I need to buy some Zep.

I can't even remember listening to Physical Graffiti outside a couple of track names that ring bells. II was bland and mediocre.

I obviously know a few other songs from elsewhere. I mean, what Westerner born after about 1950 can't sing Stairway To Heaven backwards in Swahili while sleeping?

Interesting idea. We'll have to revisit it at the right time.
Yeah. Though it would be hard to work out popularity, given how few of us are strongly familiar with all the material. I wouldn't want to base it on some "best of PT" poll where half the voters haven't even heard anything pre-IA.

But that's a hurdle to tackle when the time arrives. Hopefully when that time arrives, even more folks here will have been converted to PT.

Speaking of the time, it's time for me to catch some sleep. Night, folks.

Afternoon.

I don't know too much Led Zeppelin aside from most of their hits and a few tracks here and there.

I know markedly little Porcupine Tree and REM.

If anyone wanted to try to convert me to fandom, though ...

ElMel, afternoon.

I'm giving Bowie's Heathen album a spin now.

I've heard good things about it. Reality was great too.

Have you voted in the DI draws yet today?

Jesus, today's two matchups are the closest I've seen yet.

The one playlist I gave a second listen to was LMP's, and his grew on me tremendously there (I was really distracted when I listened to his list the first time).

I'm contemplating a simultaneous purchase of Led Zeppelin I and III, but everywhere I look the albums are overpriced. $27 from amazon for the lot is NOT a good price.

I gave my criticisms of I&L's playlist in the thread, but it wasn't easy for me to vote LMP.

Honestly, I have no idea what the fuck is going to happen in my match.
