ok, you know who else...

billy joel.

i like his writing - in terms of what he is saying/how he is wording it.
but the delivery kills it for me.
such a love-hate thing as far as his music goes.
i just can't do it.

makes me want to punch holes in the ceiling.


Last week I saw some nameless covers band do a whole night of Billy Joel and JJ Cale tunes. They did a better Billy Joel than Billy Joel and a passible JJ Cale...

For my entry to this thread I'm going with The Boss, and the notion that one can like someone's music and still think they're overrated.

I own 7 Springsteen albums and they're all good for an occasional spin. I like Born To Run a lot.

But the reverence from the legions of adoring fans? I don't get it.


This post sums up U2 in a similar way for me. I know you know the bulk of what I'm going to post, but I'll post it for the sake of the thread.

I own their entire catalogue from the beginning up until the late '90s, the decade where I think U2 were at their creative peak. But after the lacklustre sales of the 1997-1998 PopMart tour, from 2000 until present, they have been desperately submitting to the pressures of trying to enhance their popularity by making albums that are incredibly generic & pedestrian in sound & image (even their album covers since then look similar). And for the most part, they've succeeded. Essentially, U2 have done a total 180, in terms of attitude, style & musical integrity. In fact, the only innovative thing I can think of that they've been able to pull off since the late '90s, has almost nothing to do with their music, and that is their stage set designs...


CUNT! with droves of admiring CUNTS!

They're probably not over-rated, but every time an Animals song comes on the radio it's an immediate "change the station" for me. I don't know what it is....maybe Burdon's voice. Since I don't care for War with Eric Burdon, that's probably it.
