Yeah ... Luke ... if it bugs you ... just chop the .5's from my scores ...


As for your observation Peter ... well, it does say 'Part 2' ... so maybe they've been previously dealt with ? Your right though, the Hollies are /were great !  8)

Not to mention 10cc; Genesis; Hot Chocolate; ELO .... etc; etc etc;


Of course .. you may have heard of the Beatles ?

So, yeah, gotta be on part 1 !

Yes, I guess it's a tad easier to copy a list and then rate it compared to actually creating the list.... (don't forget Herman and his little Hermits). I'm guessing this list will be shorter......

Only a 3 ?  :\'(  ... Mike definitely needs to listen to some MORE Moody Blues ...  (bet he hasn't listened to many of their albums...).



As for Roxy ... only a 1 !  ???  :\'(



I don't think you can have heard the BEAUTIFUL 'Avalon' album ... could you Mike ?  ???

I've seen The Moody Blues live twice in the last 10 years and they were great, and I'm sure a little moire time spent listening would get their rating up'd easily.  you obviously like them a lot.  if I gave a band a 1 it's probably because I don't know them well and couldn't rate higher

Fair enough Mike ... but let me tell you ... if you get the chance ... scope out Roxy Music's Avalon album. VERY smooth / easy on  the ear. Described in one book I have as the album that presaged the coming of 'New age' music .... a kind of 'aural wallpaper' ...



It was a major leap up for them IMHO ...

Incidentally ............... and as a HUGE Moody Blues lover of songs ................ I do have to confess, that having seen a recent (2004 ? )  concert by YES ..............with their classic lineup, in Boston .............. well, I was TOTALLY blown away by the technical prowess of those guys .............AND ................ the lovely mellow ambience / hypnotism, of the whole thing. These guys are as good as they were ........... in their prime !    8)
