    For the record, I feel Pink Floyd music, while vastly superior to Steely Dan, even at its best -- sounds more and more dated as the years roll by. Compared to say Led Zep, which - at least their best stuff -- lives and breathes as if it were created this week.

    JMHO.

    What's more astounding: The fact that mankind has conceptualized, and built, the Hadron Collider, or that, in 2011, we're still talking about a glorified Vegas act like Steely Dan?

    Or Mozart, for that matter. So what's your point? That musical complexity is meaningless? That Wynton Marsalis is no better than Vanilla Ice?

    His point is that musical complexity doesn't necessarily mean musical superiority.

    [QUOTE=BushyTheBeaver;4243879]One dark and moody. The other reflective but playful. Both very intelligent, distinctive, and musically creative. Many similarities between the two: both have amazing lead guitarists, both feature prominent use of sax, both are essentially studio bands. Lots of differences too, tho.

    My vote:

    Both are in my top 10, but PF is closer to 1 and SD is closer to 10.

    Both incredible bands, however. And not an outrageous poll.

    Alice in Chains was actually the most directly influential 90's "Seattle Grunge" Band, confirm/deny?

    You classify Alice in Chains as grunge like the rest of the weirdos?

    I gotta side with Warfish on this one.

    Alice in Chains was probably THE biggest musical influence for bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana, not to mention that they singlehandedly

    Oh, wait....Warfish isn't a mod anymore?

    Nevermind.

    lolz...


    I was just drunk arguing with my brother about this the other day. We drunkenly determined that since Alice in Chains opened for Slayer in 1990, the were more of a metal band then a grunge band. Also, Mr. Cantrell's guitar playing is less grunge and more metal (the man can hang).

    This is true, but I would argue that they generally influenced a bunch of dooshes, so I'm not sure whether this should be trumpeted.

    That someone as "plugged in" as you would say something so absurd confirms that SD is quite simply the most misunderstood band in rock history.

    If you can honestly listen to songs like Doctor Wu, Here at the Western World, and King of the World and not appreciate the lyrical and conceptual brilliance, then it is truly your loss.
