They perfected the type of pop rock they set out to make, their songs always sound masterfully crafted and ingenious, yet all noticeably different from one another, like the Beatles or Abba.

Their sound was great, unique, and influential, but people definitely tend to overrate them. Still an awesome band though, 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out' is definitely among my all time favorite songs.

They helped influence rock bands to continue after the hair-metal dominated 80s. Their legacy is visible in most of the great rock music today.

From Liedzeit 01/07/2017 17:16
Is there any reason why one should not be allowed to dislike this band? I really would like to like them if for no other reason than the fact that Morrissey is a Sparks fan. Unfortunately I do not. A couple of their singles are quite nice, but to work thru an entire LP is hard work for me.

Possibly the greatest lyrics of all time. Great guitar/ bass playing, with a very competent drummer. Awesome band!
