Sonic Youth is the perfect candidate for this topic... Murray Street was easily one of the best 2002 releases.

Re: Speaking of *rubbish* bands, can someone explain the Strokes appeal?

Originally posted by Shrapnel Quite simply, what is the appeal of the Strokes? Why are they the greatest rock band that has ever existed?

Well, I literally grew up with the Pumpkins, so perhaps I'm slightly biased to a "awg, they weren't that bad" opionion... But compiling albums has always been Corgan's Achilles' heel.

And of course the entire lesbian thing is just a gimmick to sell more records... But most pop-acts use gimmicks to sell better nowadays, so what? Just do what I do, ignore them alltogether. ;) Tatu's music isn't exactly my cup of tea, though... It's awfully overproduced and the vocodered voice-trick...

Read it a few months back, was a very interesting read with an unexpected twist at the end. The dark and surrealistic atmosphere reminded me a bit of Ian McEwen's grim novel The Cement Garden, which I'd read back in highschool.
