Queen (AMAZING) or Steely Dan (AWFUL).
i can't make head nor tails of it all.
I like stadium rock big pop songs Queen , i've never properly gotten into their other stuff. I understand why some people hate them, I don't even disagree with their reasons, they're kind of just a bit of fun to me. I haven't even bothered watching the film. I think Freddie brings a bit of life to what would otherwise just be, yeah, technical proficiency. In fact, without him they'd just be .... well they'd just be Steely Dan wouldn't they?I can't make head nor tail of this statement, but was provoked into response by sheer shock.
Queen are absolute garbage. They're so fucking bad. Lyrically at least this sarky Fagen business is interesting...the songs have some semblance of narrative.
Queen are LCD guff with technical proficiency holding up a hollow, tedious body of work.
Anyway, picked up Gaucho recently for a quid. Been listening to it after I get home from the pub. A classic lonely guy 2 A.M listen.
I don't know what the appeal is. First heard them living with some Americans. Big Black Cow reminded me of the sarky Jim O'Rourke pop stuff.The Americans just insisted it was good old cheesy (AOR?) nonsense, but there's conspicuously a dark, maybe even malicious tone to the lyrics. The lyrics at least gauge my interest which is more than could ever be said for Freddie Mercury.
I've always liked Donald Fagen's voice. It's a pivotal part of the overall appeal.
Steely Dan are like a dirty, dubious yet economically solvent uncle your parents don't want you hanging around with it; you know he's a bad guy, but the craic is too good, so you can't help yourself.
Did you really just throw Queen into that list to troll lonely, overeducated sados like me?
