I like The Smiths a lot less than I did, I like Led Zep a lot more than I did. But I'd still take The Smiths at this point - ultimately their songs mean more to me. Give it a couple of years and I'll probably opt for Led Zep though.

I've taken the decision.

I'm bored of the twat and the misery he deals in.

I'd choose a glass of orange juice over Deep Purple's entire catalogue.

Believe it or not, I'm in agreement.

As easily as Zep wins this, in fact.

Smiths had the better lyrics by far. LZ wins by most other metrics.

The Smiths smash them on song titles and foppish indie dancing. But little else...
