I love Tim and I love Len, but I just don't get Jeff Buckley at all, or his histrionic interpretation of 'Hallelujah'. I know the entire world loves him and he died for all our sins, but... meh.

Also, I can't stand The Flaming Lips. Granted, some of their early work is quite enjoyably chaotic, but mainly I hate Wayne Coyne's faux-naive, faux-profound, 'I speak the truth like a child' wide-eyed creepy guru-messiah schtick, which amounts to spouting dreadful American hippy platitudes in a whiny high voice with KY Jelly melting in his beard. Their hit singles over the last decade have musically been more akin to Coldplay, yet they receive tons of critical plaudits.

I REALLY don't get it.
