Underated band. Such amazing melodies and hooks.

And I can't understand how Coldplay are "lame", they don't conform to a particular image and just go about making the music they want to make.

As a human being you must understand that anybody can have whatever opinion they want.

And anyway, Coldplay are lame!

Now I feel sad.

I think I saw a pic of you in the IF pic thread and yeah you have very fair skin, but I wouldn't call you pasty. Think of how people would look if they had been buried alive for six or so months. That's what I think of when I say pasty.

Theory of a Deadman.

If you live in Canada, you know who they are. The only thing lamer than Nickleback is a band that tries to imitate Nickelback.

Two words:

Fix You.

They're lame. They've always been lame. Now they're lame and they suck.

Shouldn't any band do that?

I finally looked up a Status Quo video on youtube.
Just not my cup of tea I suppose. Most of their songs, to me, sound like partially finished songs that were dragged out by the lead singer wailing. He wails too much. Paranoid Android is dragged out too much, but I still like it for the high quality redeeming parts it has.

Let Down is dragged out by wailing?

No Surprises is dragged out by wailing?

The Bends is dragged out by wailing?

I've not heard those songs. I've listened now to Paranoid Android, Fake Plastic Trees, Idioteque, 2+2=5, and Creep. Only the first one appealed to me. From what I know, the other four are also very popular songs of theirs.

That explains everything then.

2+2=5 sucks, Radiohead themselves have disowned Creep, and Idioteque probably just wouldn't be up your alley. I can't explain FPT though...I thought everybody loved that song.

I'll give it another listen, but it hasn't struck anything in my first few.

I'll look into those other ones.

No Surprises is the perfect pop song, and I think xavi's head explodes every time Let Down is played somewhere in the nation.

Our musical tastes aren't all that different, and I consider OK Computer to be the best album of the last 30 years. Can't see you hating it.
