It's part of a great album though.
I listened to it front to back a couple of weeks ago and whilst it was nice and bluesy, I didn't think there was anything memorable on it and I probably won't be going back to it. Bobby Whitlock's voice just isn't my liking. I prefer Blind Faith as my favourite of Clapton's side projects.

I don't care for Whitlock's voice either. What makes the album for me is the presence of Brother Duane Allman. I personally hold him in higher esteem than Clapton.

Songs For the Deaf is overrated. Far too much filler, and some of the longer songs are unnecessary and boring.

Rated R is the perfect QOTSA LP.

Very comparable to The Chats’ release of ‘Smoko’ and other bloke/bogan-themed songs. ‘Smoko’ was an amusing chime but that’s it, you’ve had your 15 minutes now get out of my ears because the gimmick is old.

I mistakenly thought they were a joke as well based of this one song. They’re actually pretty great and carrying on a fine oz garage sound.

I also would've thought that they were a one-off novelty, but Pub Feed was a decent track as well. I wasn't so hot on Identity Theft though. Time will tell I guess.

Ronnie James Dio was Black Sabbath’s best frontman
Best vocalist by a country mile, but Ozzy is a legendary frontman.

Unpopular opinion: Yes are my favourite prog rock band, not Pink Floyd. I wouldn't ridicule Pink Floyd's technical abilities, but Yes had some peerless musicians (Squire, Howe, Bruford, Wakeman).

EDIT: I also find Jon Anderson a more engaging vocalist than Roger Waters in particular.

even though i disagreed with this forever, I now think 70s disco music has dated a lot better than punk music and much much better than most 80s music especially the synth stuff
