1) The Beatles- 10/10. No comments required.
2) Steely Dan-10/10. The most sophisticated band in rock music.
3) The Who-10/10. The most dynamic band in rock music.
4) Stevie Wonder (1972-1976)-10/10. The sequence of those five albums is unparalleled in recent musical history.
5) Bruce Springsteen-10/10. One of the greatest songwriters and performers ever.

Wow. This is an awesome thread.

Baring in mind this list is ever-changing:

The Beatles - 10.0

They're the fucking Beatles. No one will ever surpass let alone equal them. Therefore no one else can ever score a 10.

U2 - 9.5

My favorite band of all time, despite The Beatles being the BEST ever. Still haven't seen a show that comes close to matching U2's live performances. They've made some of the most passionate and breath-taking songs in the history of popular music.

Radiohead - 9.3

They're Radiohead. Dare I say it...almost like a modern day Beatles. They're ever-evolving and constantly surprising. And almost all of their shit is amazing. If it weren't for just a few weak points in their career, they would be nearly perfect.

The Arcade Fire - 8.3

Sincerely one of my all-time favorite bands. Funeral is very dear to my heart. And Neon Bible is destined to become a classic. It's really one of the most solid, engaging, and interesting albums I've heard in a long time. They're still a young band though, and I really can't rate them much higher than this. If we were judging solely on potential, I'd give them a 9.9 or something ridiculous, because I really do see an AMAZING future in these guys. They're my favorite "new" band.

Wilco - 9.2

This was hard to rate, and I probably should give them a slightly lower score, but yeah, it's weird. I only own two of their albums, YHF and Being There, so I really can't judge them on a whole. They are also the "newest" band on this list in reference to when I discovered them (only listening for a couple weeks now). But I must say already that Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Easily in my top 10. It's mindblowing...the songs, the lyrics, the production ( ). It's THE sound I've always had in my head as to what my perfect album production would sound like, and the sound I will strive for when I record and produce music in the future.



HONORABLE MENTIONS:

Talking Heads - 9.3
The Who - 9.0
Beck - 8.9
R.E.M. - 9.2
David Bowie - 9.5

1. The Beatles - 10

I don't like much of their Moptop-era material, but anything after 1965 is fair game / some of the greatest pop music recorded in the history of mankind.

2. David Bowie - 9.5

He lost me a bit during the late '80s/early '90s, but his body of work is so large and intense to keep me busy for hours... that's what she said.

3. U2 - 9.5

I'm writing on a U2 board.

4. Radiohead - 9

1 point off for the shitty halves of Pablo Honey and Hail to the Thief.

5. Bruce Springsteen - 8.5

The Boss is the best, pure and simple, but there were times where he lost me a little bit (Ghost of Tom Joad anyone?)

My last.fm top five:

1. Pink Floyd - 10

Well? They're fucking incredible, reason enough for the ten.


2. Radiohead - 10

See above.


3. Echo And The Bunnymen - 6.5

A very strong band, but not quite within the 7-10 range. If their catalogue only consisted of their first four albums, then they'd definitely be a ten.


4. Roger Waters - 8.5

Amused To Death alone deserves an 11. But then there's Radio KAOS...so that brings him down a notch. Nonetheless, very impressive solo career from the man behind Pink Floyd's best lyrics and concepts.


5. Queen - 9.5

Simply incredible band with the best rock frontman of all time. Some questionable work in the 80s keeps them from being a 10 for me.

Ack! How could I forget about Springsteen?! I'm not sure if he's in the top five right now.

But he sure rotates in and out...that's what she said.

I'll rate a couple more just for shits and giggles then.

Springsteen - 9.0

Master songwriter, guitar-player and band-leader. He's The Boss. Born to Run is an all-time classic album. The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle is often in my top 5 favorite albums.

Bob Dylan - 9.4

THE master songwriter, but also an incredible musician. Blood on the Tracks, like Bruces TWTWATESS, is often in my top 10 if not top 5.

There should be a rule against abbreviations that spell out TW-TWAT.

Stuttering cuss words crack me up too much.

I am assuming here that my favorite band ever is a 10, and that everyone else is ranked against them; otherwise all of the following would be solid tens.

1. Pink Floyd (10): The ultimate synthesis of rock music with intellect.

2. U2 (9.75): The ultimate synethesis of the agony and the ecstacy of life.

3. Led Zeppelin (9.5): The ultimate synthesis of the sexual and the mystical. This band contains my favorite vocalist, guitarist, and drummer, and, if I were forced to pick a musical utility man, I would would have to go with JPJ.

4. The Who (9.0): Pure energy. In my mind, Townshend is the single greatest song-writer in rock history, and easily one of the most evocative and socially astute lyricists.

5. The Rolling Stones / The Beatles / Peter Gabriel / Oasis / Radiohead / Bruce Springsteen (All 9.0): I simply cannot decide this one; for the time being, I would have to lean towards Radiohead, simply because the combination of OK Computer and Kid A is about as strong as it gets.

I haven't listened to much U2 this week...at least on my computer, and I've only been on Last.FM for a couple of weeks total.

The Beatles - 10 - A band so far ahead of their time and yet so much a part of their time. Made some of the greatest pop songs ever and some of the greatest concept songs too. Can't really ask for much more from a band

U2 - 9 - A constantly evolving band that seem to always create music that i want to hear. Last couple of albums have been patchy but i still think there's life in the old dogs yet. Although not the best, they're still my favourite band

The Smiths - 9.5 - That perfect combination of great musicianship and fabulous lyrics. In Morrissey and Marr, I don't think there's been a better songwriting partnership since Lennon/McCartney.

Kings Of Leon - 8 - Followed up their excellent debut album with an even better one a couple of years ago which i don't think too many bands over the last few years have managed and they look set to progress their sound even further with the new one. A great rock n roll band gets better and better.

Oasis- 8 - Untouchable from 1994 - 1997. Their B-sides collection (The Masterplan) is a fucking great CD and is superior to most of the albums from that year. They've done little of note since though.
