Yeah, I have bad taste. That one band has just made the rest of my record collection totally obsolete.

Well personally I love Is This It? and I don't feel inferior because of it.

It's musical preference, my friend. And my musical preference happens to lean towards British music, as it is where I am born and bred and I can relate to it a lot more than I ever could with American music.

Of course, I am not just categorising everything here. I do not prefer all British music, that would be horribly ignorant of me. I do, however, like a lot more British bands than I do American bands.

Maybe it's because I like to hear songs about drunken nights out and not songs constantly referencing the war in Iraq/stupid politicians.

American music is pissing all over british music at the moment, theres a ratio of 1 good british band to 3 good american bands.

New Weird America is pretty cool. And there's probably more good underground hip-hop artists from the US. I'm not sure exactly what the ratio is in terms of post-rock... those are the big three genres I stay on top of in terms of new artists, so I guess I would consider the US ahead at the moment.
