Rancid = Even though they're not really generic, they always sounded generic to me. Somehow they don't have any real appeal to me.
I wouldn't review TheClashTheClashTheClash's last.fm since I don't know enough about the punk bands he actually listens to regularly. What's the point if you're going to give ++ for single plays of Iron Maiden and Floyd?
You're commenting on your own taste far more than you are on his last.fm.
edit: I agree it's kind of a one-dimensional list but I imagine there must be a lot of those around here especially for those who like metal.
Just seems weird to me to focus on a few one-offs when they're listed there with a whole bunch of other one-offs and clearly not representative of his listening habits. If the guy reviewing my profile had put "++ manfredd mann" or something just because I have one play by him then I'd think it was pretty strange and a sign of not really considering what my chart actually suggests about the music I listen to.
No offense intended though, honestly. If you've gotta ++ something then that's fine.
+ Genesis, Charlie Daniels Band, Led Zeppelin
~ Black Sabbath, Mastodon, Lynyrd Skynyrd
- The Mars Volta, The Sword, Helmet, Metallica, Megadeth, Silversun Pickups
Pretty much the opposite of what I like.
+Verve, Boston, 'Mats
-Beatles, Fredinand, Queen, Monkees, Sweet
--Arcade Fire, Muse
Lots of random plays.
+ Simon & Garfunkel, Pink Floyd
~ Jethro Tull, The Who, Jimi Hendrix
- Black Sabbath
Again, whoever rates mine please ignore the bands with only one or two plays. Those are a result of burning in my headphones, and not anything I actually listened to.
+ Shins, PJ Harvey, Liz Phair
~ Belle and Sebastian, Wavves
