Supertramp +2 for .. well, I just enjoy the stuff. The Who +1 for reasons as obvious as for others bumping up The Beatles.
ZZ Tops -2 and Pearl Jam -1 for lack of impact.

.. oh, and Michael Jackson +3

I looked up 'eclectic' and to my surprise it didn't mean 'bad' So Nina is OK while Björk isn't ? Okay, your appointement with the ear doctor is next Thursday 2.15 pm.

That I understand better. Though I'm sure even metal could surprise you. There are even metalheads that have difficulty believing that this is the Judas Priest.

Motorhead is not really metal. They're closer to the Sex Pistols and the Ramones than they are to say Maiden. And Lemmy is the coolest guy on the planet.

The Jacksons Five were actually in the original list. I should have left them in because I already find it hard to decide on the negatives.

I guess you wouldn't be surprised to know that I'm half-deaf in one ear and thus don't really hear things in stereo. I have a hard time with directional hearing.

Ah, just goes to show that there's always a rational explanation

-1 and -2 to cheesy Monster Ballad bands (for those of you not in the US, "Monster Ballads" is an infomercial-esque CD that's constantly advertised and features songs like "Cum on, Feel the Noise" and "Motorin'"

+1 to the Dead because they're not exclusively jam band stuff, giving you upbeat road trip music like "Truckin'", "Friend of the Devil", "Ripple", and "Mexicali Blues".

+2 to the Allman Brothers just because I really enjoy their music and they put on a great concert the one time I got to see them.

Negatives? You're kidding. Making hit after hit using only variations over 3 chords is no small feat.
