Robert Smith is the only major personality in The Cure (aside from maybe Porl). You don't see Boris Williams doing alot of interviews or having fansites set up for him.

so this makes a difference because people like james more than they like boris?

i don't deny that billy used the name to sell records; i feel pretty sure he did. I just don't get why so many people are all butthurt about it. james doesn't seem to care, so why should anyone else?

yes, it makes a difference because people view James as being integral to SP moreso than Boris to The Cure

James wasn't that integral to SP. I don't think there's a band out there with a style more dependent on the lead singer than SP, that can really be considered a band.

naw.
how about alice in chains carrying on without layne? are diehard aic fans throwing fits about it? obviously he was more integral to aic than james was to sp. I still don't know if i believe james was that big a part of the "sound". i like how you fuckers act like you know everything that went on with this band behind closed doors. I miss james' presence in the band because of his personality, but as to what he did and didn't contribute musically, I don't know. i DO know that his solo songs and songs he wrote for sp mostly sucked, so that tells me a little something.

i cannot believe this band argument has not died yet. can we drop it please and just let the music talk. If youre gonna discuss zeitgeist discuss the shittiness of the songs and drop the ambiguity of the band situation

True, but one cannot deny the "asian mystique" of James Iha. That and he was regularly banging D'arcy in her prime, so that has to count for something...

I never appreciated James until the day I saw the BWBW performance on snl.

Red Spandex

No but really, you have to SEE him play guitar to appreciate it.

i know what you're saying, but really - listening is usually sufficient.

see: end of the '96 brixton academy TTEOR posted in several threads around here, his beautiful lead on 'to sheila' from the Glass Towers internet radio broadcast, etc., live in-studio soloing on x.y.u., dueling with billy on silverfuck 08.jan.97, etc. etc. etc.

I'm getting pretty bored with skipgos SP defense. If I agree to get muted, can we mute her too? Seeing her shit day in and day out is making me ill.

for some reason, even though i'm annoyed with most people who endlessly bitch about sp2, it doesn't bother me when pale_princess does it. It's like her trademark or something.

3. Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
4. The White Stripes - Icky Thump
7. Kings of Leon - Because of The Times
8. The View - Hats Off to the Buskers

I dont think these albums are overrated at all. Theyre all pretty good and the music press havent exactly wanked over them (apart from maybe the monkeys one). As for Zeitgeist I cant remember one positive review, so surprise surprise this list is as useless as any other that people tend to publish at this time of year.
