Is it just me, or does it seem as if Rolling Stone has a grudge against Queen? All of their albums get two or three stars at most (excluding ANATO, which got five ;-).


I have to return some videotapes.

Topic Starter: they do. RS, and most music reviewers, for that matter, have been bearing a grudge against anything that got popular contrary to their predictions since the dawn of times. Pretty much the same way TM bears a grudge against anyone who makes synthetic, brainless music with more success than he himself does.

If you invested half the energy you expend on QZ on actually learning about music, you'd be a decent musician by now.

"learning about music" what are you talking about? We KNOW how to make good music and dont have to learn anything.

I agree with you TJBarrett, Rolling Stone does have a grudge against Queen. There are quite a few other bands as well that Rolling Stone magazine is grossly overlooked, I honestly, truly hate that magazine. Their '100 Greatest Guitarists' list was disgraceful, at least a third of those people didn't even belong on the list.


And Treasure Moment, any true musician is a student of his/her craft; you can never learn too much...there's always more that you can know about what you do.

Which, in fact, you can't - you're not improving the least bit, and you keep insisting that dull and predictable chord changes with annoying anti-melodies over them makes good music. It doesn't. Plus, you refuse to learn the least bit about how music is constructed, how harmony works, how melodies are formed, everything! You believe that you know everything and are great, when in fact you are about as knowledgeable and skillful as the average garage punk-rocker.

Big Time! 

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards should sue the magazine for defamation of character.  Any magazine that lists a top 500 rock albums list without a Queen entry is seriously setting fire to any official proof of intelligence and simple obvious awareness of any kind as to how music is interpreted in greatness.  Instant waves of Queen's various elements with their perfectly constructed sounds and production value from voice through every sound made in recording, and they should at least be aware of Queen's massive popularity and Bo Rhap's individual recognition as the 20th Century's most popular worldwide song, poll after poll for years have resulted this way. 

The Grammy's are the same way.  They wait until Plant and Page reunite to pay homage to them.

I listened to Warrior and a couple of their tracks and thought "Not too bad. Some cool bits in there.", but this guy can't really take any criticism in a public forum and now is the town's jester.

I think it would be kinda fun if TreasureMoment typed for us a couple of their greatly imaginative chord progressions and explain the greatness of the music his band makes.

Better yet, if someone has the spare time and wants to piss this fucker off, you can analyze the tracks with a music theory language well beyond TM's understanding: advanced terms like "harmonies", "dissonance", "major and minor chords", "time figures", "rythm", etc. We could even make it a permanent section of this site.

Also, it TreasureMoment is as good as Queen, how is it that you haven't recorded a single Queen cover and load it into the Stage of the Champions?? You can tell people that they don't understand your music but recording a well known track would surely put in the spotlight your poor musical skills.

you listen to the SHITTY mainstream bands like U2,coldplay etc and they all are VERY simple amateur predictable songwriting with a few chords. Our music cant even be compared to those shitty bands.

Actually, Queen has an album(ANATO) in their Top 500 Albums list and three songs(Bohemian Rhapsody and WWRY/WATC) on the Top 500 Songs list. But the magazine still sucks.

I know what you mean about the Grammys. They never gave Zeppelin a Grammy while they were still around. Also, U2 has more Grammys than the Beatles. Bullshit, I say! U2 sucks ass compared to any other great band. The Beatles haven't been given a lifetime achievement award either, though John Lennon has been. Queen and the Beatles are long overdue. I bet U2 will get the award long before either of them. The Grammys aren't worth shit...

I've said this time & time again, If people who read RS mag bought only the albums which they praised, said person would have the worst music collection ever! It's really sad how many people in the US & worldwide put so much stock into that magizine. As if what they print is gospel. They are so self validating its sickening. I was watching the movie Almost Famous last week & the way they were presented, the mag that is, as total ego maniacs. They must really believe what they are shoveling. Saddly so do millions of others. Granted that is a movie & maybe Crowe wanted to make them appear like that. But I'm not surprised if thats how it was & still is.
