Thanks for the tips. Lots of food for thought ...and for ears!

I understood you think Prince is Overrated but you named underrated albums. Could you pls clarify the 3 most underrated artists in your opinion?
X Elbow
Y Phil Collins
Z Oasis
is that correct?


Sorry.
I was thinking albums not artists. Beg your pardon.
Oasis in latter days MASSIVELY overrated.
Artists,,,,,hmmm back to the drawing board.

BRB with the decisions,,,,


ps. I tried to read the stuff on TAFKAP, or 'THE' or 'Prince'
but for some reason I just drifted off to a happier place!
Thanks for the link tho.

Re: Most under/overrated band/singer

Overrated singers:
Bob Dylan
Leonard Cohen
They should both stick to what they do best: song writing.

Underrated:
Barclay James Harvest. They were/are massive in mainland Europe but never had the same success in the UK.

Perhaps somewhat controversially because of his more recent downfall: Jonathan King. There was a time when he could almost do no wrong, possibly the Simon Cowell of his day. Perhaps his greatest claim to fame was producing Genesis and setting them on the road to prog. rock superstardom.

I may come back later with third choices. Too many too choose from to single one out at present.

Thanks! Will check this dude out on my friend Google tomorrow. Bet he can't beat Bootsy Collins though.

Do you know any really good slap bass guitarists? Please don't mention Mark King of Level 42. Not all that good in my view.

Another bass player I love is Nick Beggs but his style is eclectic.
But if you like to hear a true master of slap bass check out Victor Wooten.

I can't tell the difference between Britney and Christina but ok, I'll go with Britney then.

Beyonce sexy? I guess it's relative then.

Agree with all your comments Ms Meisie. . At least we share some of the same well justified musical lack of appreciation when it comes to those artistes.

always liked Supertramp, but don't you think they are at least fairly rated?
Maybe on a relative basis, compared to Genesis they are underrated.
Or they have been forgotten a bit too soon, partly understandable since they stopped doing great things in the mid 80s...
