No, because then it wouldn't be personal at all.

yea but we are not comparing them to a band released 15 albums as long as a band had good albums ir shouldn't matter how many theyre was it should matter how good they are thoug hi will admit that i think if you were placing JD against a band that had released 15 good
albums that band should win over a band that only released two good albums

No you're comparing them to your ideals for a hall of fame band and for me one of those ideals is some sort of longevity. They lack that and to may that's the major factor causing me to reserve judgment on them for this thread. If I loved both albums it would be a no brainier, but really I am sort of impartial to them. My vote will be based on their complete resume not my personal taste.

Best example i can give, i like Blues Traveler better then Joy Division but would never nominate or vote in favor of Blues Traveler for the hall of fame.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Well thats a subjective thing and there will certainly come a band that people will be heavly divided on.

I think you have to be British to really appreciate what Joy Division did.

Without them no Factory Records , with no Factory Records you can discount most of the 80s British indie scene. Sure it would have happened eventually but not to the scale it did. How many other independent bands were getting appearances on prime time TV and radio in 1979. I'll give you a clue , the answer is zero.

If they don't deserve a place in a hall of fame for being trailblazers of what was then a virtually non existent independent scene in the UK and making it a vibrant creative culture with a worldwide audience then who does?
