    wow i dont even know what to say to that heres a fact

    The Dark Side of the Moon was an immediate success, topping the Billboard 200 for one week. It subsequently remained in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988, longer than any other album in history. With an estimated 45 million copies sold

    yes thats right 15 fucking years!!!!!!!! longer then radio Head have been a band

    Ok Computer (a great album) is what Pink Floyd would leave OFF their album.


    Let's not go crazy. Pink Floyd is one of the great rock bands of all time. Radiohead is probably in the top 20 at this point, given their ability to both rock and innovate. They have gotten "too weird" too soon to ever be among the top greats in rock, but to compare them to something like Muse is overdoing it. They are probably the best band, given their entire catalog, of the last 15 years. Not my favorite, but probably objectively the best.

    i didnt ,i said its like comparing muse to The beatles (muse is a great band by the way)..i actually like them better then RH,they just fucking rock out man and if you ever see their shows they are very Pink Floydesque,whereas Rh takes themselves wayyyy to seriously (even though i do like them) kinda like Chris Martin and company whom i absolutely loathe

    If not untrue, this is depressing.

    Foo Fighters - maybe, but only their first two albums were really great. The others delved into pop too much.

    Chili Peppers - Their best came before 1995, and I think we can all agree on that.

    White Stripes - maybe, but not as much good stuff put out as Radiohead overall. Great band though.

    Nirvana - lol dude. Pre-1995.

    Now you gotta be trolling. Again, neither has been particularly incredible in the last 15 years.

    Well you can understand my surprise when you mentioned a band whose lead singer had been dead for the entire period in question. [​IMG]

    I just re-read the Pitchfork Kid A review. I think it is the most pretentious piece of musical journalism I have ever read in my life! http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/6656-kid-a/
    There's pretentious, and then there's badly-written. It's okay to use flowery language, particularly when you want to convey a sense of breathlessness in a review, but you need to have the composition skills to support it. Anyway, this threak has persuaded me to download OKC and Kid A. From what I've heard so far, they're good, not blow-my-head-wide-open great.

    well i really dont like radiohead
    i dont find anything about their music interesting
    pink floyd on the other hand, while overrated (not bad), i can enjoy

    Lol @ you guys arguing over what is all obviously bad music for the sake of further pitting the size of your penises (peni?) against each other.

    Kid A is brilliant. The old stuff is decent. In Rainbows is samey garbage.
