Re: A genie gives you the chance to resurrect a singer that died to soon
Just some personal opinions:
The Wall is a good album, but it's also one of the most overrated albums ever. It's even below Animals for me. However, Dark Side of the Moon is one of the best albums ever.
With that said, airplay and album sales are terrible ways to judge the quality of albums.
In Utero is better than Nevermind, and Nevermind is also one of the most overrated albums ever. What we like to latch onto is that Nirvana is responsible for creating such a unique sound and making it so accessible.
Foo Fighters are less unique, but overall, they are better than Nirvana. It's kind of like a Beatles vs. Stones argument for me. On one hand, in their primes, I feel like they were about equal with each other. On the other hand, the Stones have lasted much longer and have come up with more quality music as a result of releasing more material.
Nirvana is one of my all-time favorite bands, and I haven't liked a Foo Fighters album in years (although I respect them). However, if I try to be objective about it, I must admit that Foo Fighters have come up with better songwriting. But I'll be damned if I haven't spent several more days listening to them over Foo Fighters.
