Maybe I was young and naive, but I was shocked (and saddened) when Cobain shot himself.

I'd always take Nirvana over Pearl Jam. That being said, I really loved TEN. But for me, Pearl Jam tended to go down the same path the the Cilli Peppers did. With both I loved the older stuff, but they got too...too something. PJ just lost that I dunno, rawness or something. Last Kiss annoys the crap out of me. I know its a beautiful (in a way) story in that song etc, but it sounds like a nursery rhyme or something.

I always hoped Bush would keep at it and I reckon they could have been so much bigger. It seems that after all the shit they got from the critics about 'trying to be too American, instead of sticking with their Brit roots etc' (huh???), they just backed off a little. Maybe thats coinicidence, who knows. I will never believe the Seattle Grunge was their intention.

Oh, and CK, what's being Asian got to do with anything? Curious. Please enlighten.

PLEASE don't tell me thats all you know of later day Pearl Jam. Last Kiss is NOT representitive of their work. If anything, their albums are more raw now than ever before.

Nope, its not. I have Reveal, the one with the black cover...cant recall the name, plus Vs and ten. I also have a live disc they released which is brilliant.

I do not like the newer stuff.

LOL, this is funny. Sorry.

The albums I have....I know one is Vitalogy, and I'm sure the other is Reveal. One has a black cover and one has all these boxes with different pictures in them. The live disc is alos black. I guess to a PJ fan they aren't new. But thats about the time when I lost interest.

Yes, its all about taste, yay we agree!

And absolutely I adore STP.


I'm not following you either lol

What did you think off Tiny Music, #4 and shangri-la dee da? I personally fell in love with STP on those albums. Great diversity in music styles and Weiland is such a camelion with his voice its uncanny. Too bad they can't seem to get it all going at once, they could have been the next big band.
Oh well...

Tag, your it

Yes they could have been the next big one. Pity really. Again with STP it was their early stuff that got me. I got the singles, vaseline, plush and Interstate love song then got the Purple album, Core and then Tiny Music. The later stuff I only know by certain songs. Purple is prolly my fave of all the stuff I know, but it could be co its what I'm most familiar with.

So do you like Bush? Pleeeeeeeeease dont say they are like Creed and just a bunch of wannabes!

Your turn!

You know, In all honesty, I don't really know all that much about Bush. They are just one of those bands that kind flew below my Radar. I defintly have to check some stuff out. Creed blows...

Pearl Jam's Studio Albums:
Ten
Vs.
Vitalogy
No Code
Yield
Binaural

Not sure what "Reveal" is, unless one of the albums got a different title overseas, maybe. The cover sounds like "No Code" which was a montage of pictures.

I was more a Pearl Jam fan than a Nirvana fan. Dunno why. But PJ lost me after Vitalogy.

Time for my two bits... lol

If I had to choose between Nirvana's "In Utero" and Pearl Jam's "Ten" I'd have to pick Pearl Jam, but the comparison ends there. I like many others here, lost interest in Pearl Jam after "Vitalogy".
As for Nirvana and Kurt Cobain... his death was so shocking, even if one could predict it coming. I dunno, I live practically a hop skip and a jump away from Seattle and that time period in music will always remain very inmportant to me. It set the stage for what was to come. If Kurt hadn't died, I don't think Nirvana would still be around, and I don't think the music scene would be any different today. He made his mark while he was here.... I dont think he could have made a bigger impact had he lived. I know that is a terribly sick thing to say, but I believe it to be true.

As for STP.... I lost interest in them. They were great when they first started but I dunno, all good things must come to an end. I really wish BUSH got more airplay. I have their first two albums plus 'Deconstructed' but I kinda admittedly forgot about them after that. They just don't get the promotion here......
