Exclamation Re: Kinks versus Queen!

The Kinks for me. Queen's music is way overblown for my taste.

Re: Kinks versus Queen!

While "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a masterpiece of arranging, producing and engineering, it's still a novelty song, and Queen always struck me as a novelty band. A very talented novelty band.

The Kinks catalog is somewhat uneven, they're kind of hit-and-miss with me, but they get my vote for "Victoria", Waterloo Sunset" and "Sunny Afternoon" alone.

Exclamation Re: Kinks versus Queen!

Surprisingly few votes here for two bands this popular.

I'd call it only a masterpiece of overproduction. I'm with Sid Vicious when it comes to Queen and arena rock in general.



In any event, this one warrants another look:

Kinks






Queen

Re: Kinks versus Queen!

Now this an interesting battle. Both bands mean something to me from my history. For me it's the Kinks. Queen lose it because of their Kind of Magic and Hot Space albums
