wink Rate your Top 5 favorite bands/musicians on a scale of 1-10

I'm using my last.fm Top 5.

U2 8.5/10 - would definitely be higher if not for the good but average last 2 albums.

The Beatles 10/10 - I can't find any fault with these guys, I just can't!

Red Hot Chili Peppers 8/10 - Great band but I'm not a fan of many of their lyrics from the early years. On the other hand, I love their mature side even though certain songs from Stadium are too mellow for their personality!

Tori Amos 9/10 - Exceptional singer/songwriter who IMO has not delivered a single bad album including The Beekeeper which I love. Venus still hasn't fully grown on me though!

Pearl Jam 9/10 - Excellent band that consistently delivers quality rock music! Would be higher if not for some weird shit like Stupid Mop and Untitled (Red Dot)

the beatles 10/10 - just because

u2 9/10 - my favourite band that existed while i was young. i cannot give them as good marks as the beatles, though.

radiohead 9/10 - i cannot rate them lower than u2.

r.e.m. 8/10 - great band, but its been a while since i've listened to them.

wilco 8/10 - a great musical discovery i made some months ago.

I'll use my last.fm too...

Beck 9.5/10 - Brilliant artist. I don't know if there's an album of his that I don't enjoy. Definitely one of the geniuses of this generation.

The Beatles 10/10 - Uh...they're the Beatles. 'Nuff said.

Wilco 7/10 - I haven't heard much by them, but they seem to be a pretty good band.

Arcade Fire 8.5/10 - They haven't made a bad album yet, and they're one of the most inspired bands in rock. They're awesome.

The Kinks 9/10 - Classic band. Their stretch of brilliant albums from the mid 60's to the early 70's is mind-bending.

This is my last.fm Top 10

1. U2
2. The Beatles
3. RHCP
4. Tori Amos
5. Pearl Jam
6. Oasis
7. Keane
8. Pink Floyd

I love Radiohead but cannot listen to them all the time. Sometimes I want cheerful/upbeat music.

But if they're my 5 FAVORITE bands/musicians, shouldn't they all be rated a 10?

U2 - 9/10 - as a band they're one of the best ever and they're in my life for a long time

Muse - 9/10 - three amazing musicians, two wonderful albums, they're young, they still have to work but in my opinion they are one of the best bands of the moment (specially live)

Franz Ferdinand - 5/10 - they're not a great band, they're not unique but they don't want to be that either, they just want to have a good time and entertain people. Their live shows are can put anyone in a good mood...

The Arcade Fire - 8/10 - amazing... I'm waiting to see them live. Both albums are great with beautiful and rich songs.

Belle & Sebastian - 8/10 - the sweetest band ever... They're always surprising me. The songs are just so cute and childlike but some lyrics are very sad and melancholic...
