I don't think any other band in history had such a strong catalogue of music. 4 studio albums and yet they've influenced just about every aspect of my taste in music. Best band ever? Just about.

Definitely grown on me over time. At first all their stuff sounded repetitive and such, but after digging I've found they have much more ability than I'd ever thought.
