The Davies bros are still astounding me.

The more I listen the more I discover. They're discography is deep and rich and I am still discovering gems. I just recently starting appreciating this simple masterpiece.

In the Lileks Memorial Minneapolis Beatdown category I propose Replacements vs. Husker Du.

I prefer The Replacements tunefulness, they are more melodic than Husker Du. I'm a McCartneyite from way back so melody is very important to me.

I prefer The Kinks over all of their fellow British invaders.

I prefer Neil Young over just about anyone.

Who vs. The Kinks. My love for The Who hasn't diminished, but my love for The Kinks has only risen through the years. Still, it's The Who.

This is me, but with the opposite result.  The Davies bros are still astounding me.

I hear what you say about Zeppelin though.  The Zeppelin ablums are like perfect jewels encased in amber.  They're so archetypal and familiar and era defining but so thoroughly explored.

How about -=- Neal Young or David Bowie?

Captain Beefheart or Jonathon Richman?

Jimi Hendrix or Johnny Cash?

Gotta take a mulligan on this one. Not familiar with either one to make a judgement. What is your assessment?

I was a huge fan of the first couple of BAD albums, and I'd have to vote for them on that alone. The use of sampling in a rock context (which I believe was mostly Don Letts' doing, not Mick's) was kind of revolutionary and still relatively rare. Now, the subsequent albums mostly didn't live up to that (especially "F-Punk," which, holy shit, what's up with the singing on that), but yeah those first two are all-time for me.

Big Audio Dynamite or Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros?

Zeppelin vs The Who is a real poser.  Probably Zeppelin, but it'd be a real wrench to give up The Who.  Also, I don't think they are similar enough.  I would propose: The Who vs. The Kinks and Zeppelin vs. The Stones.

Once upon a time I would have agreed with you, but now... I'm in a weird place with Zeppelin. They were an awesome group, but I found myself not wanting to listen to them anymore. My love was rekindled when they put out that awesome live record about 15 years ago, but has since gone cold once again. Even at my peak Zep love it would have been close between them and The Who!

Who vs. The Kinks. My love for The Who hasn't diminished, but my love for The Kinks has only risen through the years. Still, it's The Who.

I would have said Son Volt right after the break-up, but it's Wilco now--they've done far more to change over time and do more interesting things.

Big Audio Dynamite or Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros?

The Who is the right answer to all of those questions.
