Britney strikes me as nothing more than a hooker masquerading as a musician/singer. She reminds me of one of those prostitutes (the only people who used to dress like that before she came along) that used to walk Times Square before ex -Mayor Guiliani began his cleanup

I like this album myself; It`s grand , sweeping and epic. The only fault on Wind and Wuthering is Mike Rutherford`s dreary and boring ballad, `your Own special way', which is a good case for insomnia. A terrible foreshadowing of things to come and Rutherford was Postule Phil`s lieutenant in watering...

I prefer Tony Banks. He had a large in hand in the composing of classic genesis tunes and it was he who kept the prog elements alive when Pablum Phil was nauseating us with his pap like tendencies in the 80`s. Banks was not a flashy palyer in the style of Emerson and wakeman. Now as much as I like t...

Major ELp fan here. It`s ironic because I was listening to this today. It`s beautifully produced by Greg lake and the album has a gothic feel to it, right down to it`s cover. The lyrics, by Peter sinfield, are a forshadowing of what our society has become. People becoming voyeurs of trashy spectacle...

He`s more of a precision drummer than Alan White, who is basically a ...

No way, would this have worked. First off, it would have fallen apart as soon as it started.
