STP is one of my all time favorite bands. However, I agree there are better bands out there but IMO they're the most "rock n roll" rock band out there

I like bands that dont sound the same on every album and grow.

I will say I think Trace may be the best post UT output from either band...

Probably so. I wore that one out.

Straightaways was kind of meh but Wide Swing was pretty good.


I'd still pick Wilco.

That's a shame b/c I think Tweedy has been one of the best songwriters the last 10 years.

I like em both... lean more towards Wilco the past 15 years (although, upon break up, I'd have bet my life Farrar would have been the more successful of the two)

I understand the reasons why there are detractors for both, for valid reasons... just a matter of taste

I like bands that sound the same on every album instead of changing their sound and sucking. Unfortunately, that never happens. Other than maybe Steely Dan.

They do to me, and that's all that really counts for me isn't it?

I see this said about lots of people. People even say it about Cobain. Always makes me laugh.

Loved A.M. Liked a few songs after that. Give me Jay Farrar any day over Tweedy.

Wow, wilco sucks to you?

Never really heard anyone ever express how they think wilco sucks.

What sucks about them?

I listen to the songs and don't like them. Sucks is kinda strong. Sucks was used in relation to a band's early work. Almost all go through this. Besides, Son Volt is more popular than Wilco. -LSUBalls.

STP ..COULD have been the best...they certainly had the potential. There was a span there where they were cranking out some really good stuff.

Sadly, potential doesn't mean squat.
