So I'm listening to The White Stripes.
They don't make me vomit, they just make me want to go listen to the music they're emulating.
A lil zeppelin, a lil stones, a lil who (bleh), a lil sabbath.
They're the blender band of the late 60s. It's not really a bad thing, but not really *great* either.

i miss you
While i agree with you, i'm disappointed that you never summarily dismiss musicians that are dear to my heart so that we can have a pointless debate about personal taste.

We rarely argue anymore. I'm beginning to think we need to start going to couples therapy to see if we can't get our relationship back on track.

And I you
You never correct my grammar, spelling, or word usage anymore.

But that aside, I've tried to turn over a gentler, kinder leaf as regards music. And I think I've ranted myself out about the things that annoy me right now. All of the "The" bands annoy me on some level. I gave The White Stripes a shot becuase Dave was kind enough to send me a burn of White Blood Cells and because I was feeling generous.
If I were in a more caustic mood, they could be easily placed right alongside The Vines and The Hives, bands that do nothing but emulate musicians they obviously wish they were. They're contrived, A&R-guy produced, brat-bands who think they're doing something new by doing something old.

Is that a little better? Step in the right direction? I want to make this work, Ken.

The strokes, the hives, the vines, the white stripes, the counting crows... wait.. that doesn't belong there.
OR DOES IT?

::one of these things is not like the others::

naah. the counting crows, while they do suck much, do not get the type of promo that the other aforementioned do - they aren't *new*, albeit they are similar.
