Alright y'all, you know the drill:

Faith No More's Album of the Year is not only an underrated album, but actually superior to the FNM fanboy holy grail, Angel Dust.

OK, go!

I think I'd agree with this.

Just wanna get this off my chest.  The Astonishing is DT's weakest album by a country mile.

I love Album Of The Year.

Ashes to Ashes ? What a song.


But The Astonishing is better than When Dream And Day Unite and Awake. :)

This. I'm sorry, I really tried and wanted to like this. I even went and saw them perform this live. But I just can't say I enjoy it.

Hopefully, their next album will be more my thing.

OK, go!

Actually my "holy grail" from Faith No More would be King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime, then Angel Dust and then Album Of The Year

I think Loveless is one damn boring album. Animals too. And American Football, The Low End Theory, Dopethrone, Master of Puppets, Odelay, Lateralus.

And Leprous make me yawn.

Affinity might be Haken's weakest record.

Post-rock only has 3 original bands: GYBE!, Sigur Ròs, and Mogwai. The rest are lame clones of Explosions in the Sky, who are a derivative of Mogwai.

I think the Foo Fighters are the most generic, dull and just plain bad bands of all times.

I think Muse started as a poor Radiohead rip-off, and now they are a incredibly awful Queen/Radiohead rip-off.

I think The Rolling Stones are way cooler than The Beatles.

I think One Hot Minute was the last good record by RHCP.

I hate Djent.

BRO-HAM!   Other than the "Stones-Beatles" thing (and if I limit it to style and panache, we can include that too) I could have wrote every line on that post.

Add a few more:

- Not overly impressed with what I've heard from Steven Wilson (not including his Crimson remixes)
- I prefer Phil over Peter as a singer
- Tom Petty is good, and writes catchy tunes, but not sure why he is considered such a legend
- I like Chinese Democracy
- Grace Under Pressure is one of my three least favorite Rush albums
- Images and Words is one of my ten favorite albums of all time
- I like Blackmore's Night
- I like Rainbow with Joe Lynn Turner as much (if not more) than I like Rainbow with Ronnie James Dio
- Even though Blackmore is my favorite musician of all time, I think Purple with Morse is just as good
- I think Graham Bonnet failed in Rainbow because he didn't have a third name

Ozzy's solo stuff is better than Black Sabbath.

Same here, on all three of those.  Although I thought The Real Thing had some really good songs, and I still pull that one off the shelf every now and then and enjoy it at ludicrous volume.

Stadler also as a few I agree with:
- Not overly impressed with what I've heard from Steven Wilson (not including his Crimson remixes)
Same here.  I just don't like anything I have heard from him (I have not heard the Crimson remixes)

- I prefer Phil over Peter as a singer
Hmm...yeah, I tend to agree, and it isn't even close.  But I guess I never thought I would see that opinion on a prog-related message board, so I am a bit surprised.

- Tom Petty is good, and writes catchy tunes, but not sure why he is considered such a legend
Yeah, absolutely.  And so well-respected by other musicians, too.  I don't really get it.  I mean, like you said, he has some really good songs.  I don't think I have ever heard anything from him that I disliked.  But I don't really understand why his status is what it is.

- Images and Words is one of my ten favorite albums of all time
I had to think about this one.  While I don't really have an "official" top ten, while trying to just kind of rattling off my ten or so all-time favorites, Images did not make the cut.  4 other DT albums did.  But not Images.  Maybe if I tried to do a top 20, but it might fall just outside that as well.

Ozzy's solo stuff is better than Black Sabbath.
Both are hit and miss for me.  I'm not even sure if I have any Ozzy in my collection, other than one of the greatest hits I got from someone who was unloading a bunch of CD's.  But I guess if I had to start from scratch in building my CD collection and it came time to decide whether I wanted to include any Ozzy or Sabbath albums, with Ozzy, I would go with Blizzard, Diary, Speak, Bark at the Moon, and No More Tears.  No desire to hear anything else.  With Sabbath, the only complete album I would list as a "must-have" would be Heaven and Hell.  I like that one more than any single Ozzy album, and might possibly like it equally with all of those Ozzy studio albums combined.  Otherwise, for me, Sabbath is kind of a song-by-song kind of band, and if I had Ozzy's Speak of the Devil album, I would have pretty solid live versions of the vast majority of Sabbath songs that I would want.  So I guess, having talked it out, I agree with your overall point, despite the fact that Ozzy is not an artist that has interested me at all in quite a long time.

Octavarium is Dream Theater's best album.

Awake is plodding and over rated.

Falling Into Infinity is a great album.

A Change Of Seasons is their worst "epic".

Yup.

A couple of my own:

- Opeth were better before Steven Wilson started influencing and producing them
- Indie Rock/Emo is better right now than it has ever been (also one of the best genres right now)
- Green Day were never good (no, not even American Idiot, not even Dookie, not even whatever phase is supposed to be good)
- Radiohead are the most important band of the post-classic rock era

Some really good ones posted already.

- Radiohead are the most important band of the post-classic rock era

This reminded me of one:

I don't get Radiohead at all, nothing they have ever put out has interested me beyond a casual listen here or there.
