How Good Were They Really: Music Edition

#1

Hello! With Juke’s kind permission, I’m going to start a How Good… league for bands and artists. Will probably do the first one tomorrow morning so please post any suggestions here for who we can discuss. Or tell me you’re not interested and it’s a terrible idea if you like. :man_shrugging:t2:

Is this like the tv one where it was shows that had finished, in that the selections can only be artists who are no longer releasing music for whatever reason?

Would it be easier to do individual albums?

Good point, but that might make it a bit trickier so I think we’ll do any artists but on their entire canon up to that point. I think it’s ok, unlike TV there’s no complete overriding narrative arc or whatever to consider I guess.

This is DiS, I’m sure we can come up with some bands where this is applicable :wink:

I thought about that, but there are a fair few acts that people might not be familiar with albums as much as singles or whatever. Abba are the example that spring to mind. It’d be nice to consider all genres and that.

Should probably just get the obvious 5.0 from everyone on Neil Young out of the way first…

Me and a friend always joke about Neil Young, while being good, is ‘nobody’s favourite Neil Young’, are we mistaken?
