see, if you just don't listen to classic rock radio and listen to the ALBUMS by Sabbath, Zep, Floyd, the Who, Skynyrd, et al, you get past the BS songs that the radio format shoves down a person's throat, and you get the whole picture and can truly appreciate their greatness.

On the flip side, as a kid I was exposed to repeated spins of Journey Escape and Captured and Departure, REO's Can't Tune A Piano,Cheap Trick's Dream Police & Budokan, foreinger's 4 (**** Mutt Lange, btw), Styx Kilroy and Grand Illusion, etc.

I've heard ALL that shit. Styx SUCKS. Dennis DeYoung is ****ing ANNOYING. His voice is nails on a chalkboard, personafied. Plus, all the Foreigners, REOs, Journeys, Bostons, etc sonically SOUND the same - cut from the same 70s AOR cookie-cutter cloth. Not only can you really not tell the difference from album to album, even band to band.

Conversely, Pink Floyd's Animals sounds NOTHING like Meddle. At all. Led Zeppelin III and Presence sound like different ****ing BANDS. The Who Sell Out and Who's Next both sound radically different from Who Are You or It's Hard. Sabbath's Never Say Die is a far cry from their first record...and the raw, rocking Queen II is a far cry from the productions of Jazz or News Of the World.
