I have to be honest and say that because I have virtually zero exposure to any music television stations (By choice) and I no longer listen to Radio 1 I have heard very little of his music. All I know is what little I have heard has not made me think that I am in the presence of a genius. In fact to be honest he just sounds like one of many millions of hip hop artists who seemingly run MTV these days and who are more interested in making a brand rather than making any original music. It makes me wonder if he's be better off working in marketing , at least that way he can make him money without polluting my ears with his inferior reheated versions of classic songs that quite frankly are better off without him. I don't care if he's a great producer , I don't care if he has great flow or beats , quite honestly i don't have enough knowledge of hip hop to judge. All I know is I prefer the orginals before he lays his gold encrusted paws all over them.

You think you can improve on Curtis Mayfield's Movin On Up?

F*ck off bling-boy
West and Baron Davis are the same person

I know rock n roll is supposed to be "dangerous" and even stupid but **** like that just makes concerts an unpleasant and horrific experience.

It doesn't happen too often as I have a lot of respect for most of the people who post here *cough*. But there have been times when someone will come along with no taste whatsoever and then suddenly out of the blue claim that the love The Fall or whoever. I should be happy that someone else loves the bands I do but the reality is my first thought is 'Oh God , now i'll have to deal with that pain in the arse everytime I want to talk about a band I love'.
Sorry but there's a hierarchy involved. You don't just jump from Coldplay or Muse or U2 to The Fall , you earn it. when you have a basic knowledge of the bands of the time and opinions on other post punk albums and have shown me you've actually LIVED with these albums then maybe i'll take you seriously. Learning a few things of wiki and having the same generic opinions of the same generic albums will not convince me otherwise.

Selfish & elitist ? ... Fuck yes , but I never claimed I was the nicest person around.

I tend to agree, but for a different reason. It's somewhat annoying when someone who listens to Duran Duran and the Spice Girls suddenly starts "liking" Echo & The Bunnymen. It just cheapens the whole thing.

Snobs of the board unite
Yep, that's a good one. Even worse, though; people who hate a band based on one song. "I hate the Kinks." "Which songs have you heard?" "Just that one about the transvestite...but that song sucks, man! I hate the Kinks."

I already posted this before but I'll re-use it here because i'm lazy.

My personal opinion is that grunge is one of the biggest fallacies in music history.

I don't have a problem with the ideal of grunge, The thought of someone putting Black Sabbath style riffs with punk/indie ideals & attitudes appeals to me.

Grunge was supposed to be the great break out of the American Underground , but that wasn't what happened. All that happened was record labels signed up any scruffy band that looked and sounded miserable , in a lot of cases ex hair metal bands (EG Alice In Chains & Pearl Jam) There were a few exceptions like Mudhoney who run out of ideas shortly after their first album came out , and Soundgarden who despite showing some signs of promise on Ultramega OK decided to be some crappy Sabbath tribute band instead.

But other than that the whole grunge thing led to the whole 'alternative' thing where people actually believed that by listening to major label stadium rock shit like the Smashing Pumpkins & Bush that they were under the deluded impression that they were listening to the alternative to the mainstream when in reality real independent labels and bands struggled to compete against the growing monopoly of the big 4 labels.
The whole thing was a lie , and the music was mostly rubbish and thats why I hate it.
You're just a closed minded twat for thinking that. The alternative thing was a great thing in music, because it told bands that they could be heard too! And post-grunge bands are STILL in the mainstream, influencing more people. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

I didn't say I liked them, but a lot of them have the talent and have the influence, most are in the mainstream from Foo Fighters to Puddle of Mudd etc.

You're a complete div to not understand grunge's influence on music.

I'll calm down now.
I'm somewhat under 5 foot and take pictures at gigs... but I don't use a camera phone, I use a 10.1 megapixel digital camera so I have some quality to my pictures.

What is "div" short for? Or is it an entire slang word? If so, could you define it?
