TV On the Radio <------- Prince
Oh, they're both black, I understand.
And you're completely wrong also.
but not as good (not as good in the respect of how well both bands can be prince-y)
'its because they sound alike you absolute cretin'
'you absolute fucknut'.
but I feel it's been blown out of proportion I guess
I have a mortal fear that Prince/TVOTR will eventually end up becoming one of those twisted, pointless, lazy, ill-informed message board compare-a-thons in the manner of Joy Division v. Interpol and I wanted to nip it in the bud!
that some moments on Dear Science sounded like prince without reading any reviews/talkboards that prompted the comparison. Im not going to say one is better than the other, or that TVotR 'ripped off' a sound (which was probably lying dormant in the back of their head from their youth and informs rather than is copied). I do think Interpol/Editors etc all ripped off Joy Divison though. Interpol did it first, a bit more freshly so are by proxy a bit better than all the uk bands that did it after.
