My point exactly.  Doesn't quite match your opinion.
And, for that matter, it doesn't match my opinion either, as I too feel that Quad it their best.
But, again, it's not all about us.

>Among most music critics, music professionals and hard
>core Who fans, it's Quad

That's a tough call.
I agree with most 'hard core Who fans' thinking it's Quad though.

>So you're saying these notes aren't long enough as it

Just trying to avoid having to go back and do research on what Willis is talkin' about.

>It's a shame you can't see that. But apparently you

See what?

>You stated it as not opinion but fact.

Help me out Willis!

>> And, I thought *you* were the one who said ICSFM was
>> better.
>I do.

So how did *I* say ICSFM was better, when I stated it wasn't as good as the "Great" Who songs.

>> Right.  If you insist.
>You want the chart numbers?

Chart numbers from that time are useless to this discussion.
Too many variables that need to be taken into consideration.
Like a #2 on the charts could suck if all the other songs out at the time sucked too.

>> I can't make that statement.
>You don't have to. I've done it.

What statement Willis????

>> It does have it's value.
>I don't agree at all.

So, you're saying that what's played on the radio is done so by throwing a dart at a map???

>I think the vast majority of
>serious music listeners don't listen to music radio.

I think we all do from time to time.

>They have a CD or at least cassette in theif vehicle
>(probably with a killer system), and at home the same.

So, how is it that you keep so up to speed with what's being played on the radio??

>If so, then Britney is the Queen of music.

She is, at the moment.

>But The Who are clearly a lot better than the Beatles.


>> mankind.
>Oh, so now it's mankind we're talking about?

I've been talking about popularity and greatness all along.
There is popularity in a verity of degrees.
I think it's fair to say that most song writers / bands deep down hope that their songs will become staples of the world.
Mass popularity.

>You said you felt, sure, but followed with "their
>music isn't close." Their music IS close, that's what
>I meant you were wrong about. Not about your opinion.

My opinion is bigger than yours.
( ? )

>But no doubt some people do

So then, in a stalemate, doesn't mass popular opinion have any bearing??
That's all I'm saying.

>But...just a minute ago it WAS! One way or the other,
>please! This isn't "mix-and-match" day.

As I've written, it's both.
But, I tend to put more emphasis on the mass public opinion, in this debate, than your or mine, or AEB's opinion.
We're all biased!

Sorry!  Momentary lapse of reason!
But, how to know you're here until you post?

Funny, as of late, until this Kinks vs. Who thread, I've been feeling quite the Who / Pete basher here.  Not that *I* feel I have been, but I know others do.

I'm trying to be objective!
Compared to some of the Who/Pete worshipers here, I'm the bloody 'Anti-Who'!
