Do they now? Care to show me some of them?

I LOVE Los Angeles. But X's first 3 albums were all great.

WTF is all this Wire Hate? A band that constantly reinvent themselves with each album. Don't make commercial music and remain virtually unknown even in their own country. Only Joy Division remain above Post Punk bands and even then it's a personal preference as they were nowhere near as expansive as Wire.

They have made Post Punk albums, Pop albums, Rock albums and experimental albums with more ideas than most bands have in a lifetime and they are listenable too.

This is Wire. Sounds like great alt. Pop to me:

I like a Wire a lot actually I'm just pointing out what I think their faults are and what they lack compared to other post punk bands.

Los Angeles is overrated, but it's still a really good album. X as a band is criminally underrated.

They deserve a lot more recognition by the mainstream than they've gotten, which is why they've got such a huge cult following.

I love Moby.... i know it's not considered cool anymore, but i don't care... his stuff is good and never fails to please my ears. Fuck you Eminem.

There's Eternal from the Origin album...
I consider Like You a very good track, though rather clichéd.
