And granted, the op is a little narrow minded but ppl here are trying to make the best of it.

It's like, imagine if someone made a Dragon force thread saying Dragon force is the best band ever, it makes sense to refute that argument with similar bands of the same genre.

but if i go there saying "Michael jackson is better" is gonna seem out of place, no?
It's not like he was the only one I named, but yeah I see what you're saying.

Of course it's all subjective. I wasn't claiming any definitive real thing

The Name of This Band is Talking Heads is an unreal album. It really shows how well they played live. What a great album Talking Heads: The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads | Album Reviews | Pitchfork

I'm just going throw out there that Naked is an incredibly underrated album. I'd actually go as far as saying it's one of my favorites by them and is fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better than 77.
