amindtat: chitownmike: NME is a British mag, why are you surprised by this?

Do they pay Drew in pounds to post their shiatty articles?

This.  I always wonder why in the hell we have so many Brits.  I'm not anti-Brit, but for a redneck website from Kentucky, it's often inundated with crusty chavs.

The Muthaship: Stop telling me how great Chris Cornell is.  He's the poster boy for the word "potential".

Chris Cornell is great, and his resume with Soundgarden and Audioslave speaks for itself.

I loved Travis' first two albums and they were a great live band the two times I saw them, but man oh man is that album in the oh-so-British list not very good at all.

ELP: One of the biggest bands in the world in 1974, they took 2 1/2 years off and came back with a double album that had 3 solo sides, including a 17-minute piano concerto, a cover of another Aaron Copland piece and one original. The one original, Pirates, is a masterpiece but what a let down. Not to mention this:

List fails without the Sgt Peppers soundtrack LP. It shipped double platinum- 2 million copies. The record company got back 2.5 million returns. Counterfeits, cause the counterfeiters thought it was a can't lose deal, and no one would notice a few extra tens of thousands. The record company did a chemical analysis of the vinyl to prove they were 'cleans'.

This list should be cut in half and both pieces thrown away.

I never got the hate for Lulu.  Yeah, it's not Metallica.  But it's got some seriously awesome tracks.  Of course, I could also say the album has some seriously awe[some|ful] tracks....

I skipped The Spaghetti Incident due to Axl Rose being an a-hole.  I'd gone to his concert that was supposed to start at 8.  Didn't start til after midnight, my date and I had to be at work at 7 am the next day.  Started a personal boycott of anything Axl that night.
