>I reckon that, ultimately, the Darkness will not continue their success. Not due to lack of good songs, but due to the "comedy element"

Amusing at first, but difficult to continue without becoming annoying to the public. Be interesting to see how they fare in the States - the land where they won't give Robbie Williams the time of day cos he's too camp - allegedly.<

I largely agree, though maybe the Tap-ish comedy element could actually be what makes it for them in the states. They are like Spinal Tap come to life. That might catch on, at least for "15 minutes" or so.

As far as The Darkness musically -- I think they're a shitload better than Poison, Ratt, Night Ranger or a lot of the other stuff they are allegedly copying.
