ahha ultimatums tend to go too far but they are for sure one of the most important alt-rock/electronic bands of all time and i would say they easily rank in the top 5 or something of the 90s and now.
of course, I would say objectivley they compete with Nirvana for the top in the 90's and 2000's.

I find it hard to rank their albums. You can't compare them because they all have a distinct sound and they're all meant to be heard separately (hence why their greatest hits collections are so shitty). Still, my jaw dropped the first time I heard In Rainbows. I didn't expect it to blow my mind like it did.

compete for what? as important as nirvana were, they're not even close to the top 5 bands of the past 20 years.

lol, nice edit there. i was just going to say, joe satriani may be incredible at playing guitar, but that does not necessarily translate to incredible songs, which in the end is what matters.

yeah i know this haha, but i explain in the following:

Innovation/Songwriting = talent.

A different kind of talent, but still talent nonetheless.

this is true but when you just say talent you take all kinds of talent and throw them into a blender. besides victor wooten is a really, really innovative bassist haha so he has more than just playing skill. thats why i dont like pulling the talent card when talking about bands.

So it's really a matter of what kind of talent you value more. I'm inclined to agree with you that innovation >>> technical prowess.

yeah i agree with this. sure nirvana were one of the first popular bands to make soft verse/loud chorus a deliberate formula. sure this is something that totally changed rock music, which in turn totally changed pop music on a universal scale. but honestly that's a really simple feat; anyone could have arbitrarily decided to write their songs that way. i just cant be as impressed by that as i am impressed by all that radiohead has been able to do while remaining massively acclaimed on the mainstream.

yeah, way to erase one of the better posters here, just because of a few whiney scene kids who dont know how to handle their opinion being challenged. there are plenty of people on this site who are even more of a dick so its not like deleting him really accomplished anything.
