Rush actually have musical talent. Some would argue that they have so much musical talent that their respective instrumentalists are the best in the business. Geddy Lee was often listed up there with Entwistle and Macca as being the best bassist in rock, and the same could be said for Peart.

Even if you don't like their music, or Geddy's "clothespin on the testicles" vocal range, you have to give it up for their musicianship.





all neil peart did his whole life was rip moonie and bill bruford, both who piss on him. geddy lee's voice in all of its phases is annoying, and entwistle also pisses on him. the serbian dude, well, dunno, maybe he's masochistic and likes to hang out with these two chumps?
for good prog, try king crimson from 1973 (when bruford got in) till nowadays - which is bound to be completely nuts, what with fripp teaming with mel collins (sax player from the 1970-72 bands), the dude from 21st century schizoid band (a band comprised of '69-72 kc members playing the old tunes) replacing adrian belew on guitar and vocals, good old tony levin and THREE drummers. fripp may be a tool, but he's got a good knack for doing good music, especially if you like codeine.

sorry for the bad english but i'm a brazilian and i'm too lazy to use capital letters. on occasion. ummm, yeah.


the eagles? just heard that hotel california song and heard everybody and their mother in the world saying they suck so why bother trying em? can anybody give me a good reason?

Is Best of My Love the song that Eagle types hold out as exemplar, Joey?  I thought it was New Kid in Town?  I'm just pointing that out to you, as a friend.

Warm stench of ecolepiss rising up in the air, pink champagne on ice - I like all that Satan stuff, must admit.  Eagle beef!  Beef eagle monger.  Are you an Eagle monger, Joey?  Do you make it a mission to flog the Eagles?  We are all brothers under the skin, we must learn to respect the stupid opinions of inferior human beings.

Moof, moofie, Magoo?  Twango!  Bango twango!

It wouldve been polite if that band had told the world 'look, there's been a mistake...we suck. We are not worth a tenth of the vinyl you are printing our shitty songs on.'

I would have had respect for that. But they chose a different path and decided it would be a great idea to bore everyone to death with their crap.

So the correct answer is obviously the first one.

" To repeat myself, the Eagles always seemed the band directly opposite to the Rolling Stones.  All the things that drew me to the Rolling Stones - inspiration, integrity, depth, soul, influences, talent, musicianship, knowledge, growth, sweat, actual good songs - the Eagles thing seems to be almost deliberately against all of that. 

My naive belief in joining these Rolling Stones boards, dedicated to a band that hasn't put a decent out in 30+ years, was that there was some discerning taste regarding rock music, based on what was and what is.  You were someone I could discuss music with, learn from.  That was true for the most part, and it happened in spades. 

So what is an Eagles fan doing here?   What don't you Eagles fans like? List that out.  What is the point of caring about rock music, if you are an Eagles fan ?  "

By the time of Hotel California, the Eagles had honed their superb craft to such a degree, that they seemed capable of anything.  The Eagles went to their roots, to create what is arguably rock and roll's greatest album.  This was their "Exile moment.". The career defining title track is a swirling tale of ambivalence orchestrated over stunning Frey guitar. With New Kid in Town, the band hit their creative peak.  Never before had.......

How the fuck would anyone try to write a review for anything this pathetic group of twats did?  I'm good, but not that good.  "This band sucked, their massive popularity is another example of America's endless bad taste and fat ignorance.  Fear ye who tread into stagnant Eagle waters, you may not like what you come out as."

I don't like about %99 of their music.

And if I hear Desperado again, I will do Desperado on someone's ass.

I respect them, but don't like them much, no big deal, just say no or change the song/dial to some better music.

The Eagles are neither here nor there. I reckon they're the template for all those current alt country/"roots" bands like Tryin Adams, Jason Isbell, Iron and Whine, and all those very sincere young dudes with ironic beards, plaid flannel shirts, spectacles that they don't need, acoustic guitars and the occasional banjo or fiddle or doodley-doodley Clapton-esque guitar lead, and lyrics concerning heartache and vague notions of society's ills.

The Eagles actually sound very contemporary. They should sell millions of downloads.

They are too soft and whiny for my liking.  Like the Beach Boys without the craziness and Charles Manson.

Them Eagles are vapid regurgitation and blandness...a foreshadowing of today's [pop]ular music.

I hate the song "Moves like Jagger"...it is so gaddamn awful...it's inexplicable.
