I happen to like Yes. But then again, I am a fan of prog from that era. If I can't laugh at myself, then um...uh... damn I wish I was hip.

I was trying to relate The Libertines to some people of bad taste a couple of months ago... No they aren't from Canada. No they don't make music in the now uber-retarded "scream-quiet-scream-scream nu-metal post-apocalyptic bullshit" template. And no, they're not gay. Don't get me started on how bad...

"Face To Face" is one of my favorite albums and the album that for me defines the Carnaby Street vibe. I would agree that the brothers Davies have never had their fair shake when it comes to placing them alongside contemporaries from that era. An album of theirs that I have particular fondness for (...

Buddyhead's gossip page is definitely the place where musical stereo-types are spot on. I love the "no fat bass players" rule from their rules of rock (amongst others). As Travis would put it: Nah Brah!

I think we all have our own reasoning for our picks. I agree you can pretty much pick any "pop"-type song from the past (or present for that matter) and grade it based on it's bad qualities in regard to the era it was made. My pick for worst comes from my favorite band (hey - I figure I like them so...

Yeah - I saw them open up for S-K about 2 months ago. Interesting opening act, those guys. Sound like Zeppelin sifted through a "Robert Plant removing device", but with 1/10 the number of riffs (...and I ain't complainin' - they're still young). In my opinion they could have bested S-K only if the g...

Yeah - I feel you. I wanted to get "Aja" when it was re-released in DVD-A. I bet it's great. To me, that record defines their whole vibe (you could maybe throw in "Gaucho" too).
