After Massive Attack, they were the biggest inventor of Trip hop, releaseing the second trip hop album ever, tricky being third. Incredible music.Pure Classics.

They should get in because:

"Dummy" was one of the first mercury prize winners

They have influenced artists as diverse: The Civil wars, Damien Rice, Evanescence, Gnarls Barkley, Chet Baker, Lisa Hannigan, Radiohead, Jason Marz, PI, Many producers and artists, ect.

"Dummy" Made it to rolling stones 500 greatest albums of all Time list.

Beth Gibbons has one of the most beautiful critically acclaimed voices ever.

They were CRUCIAL in inventing trip hop as a genre, and culture.

Their Live album In new york is regarded by many as one of the greatest if not in the obvious top live albums of all time. Just listen to the raw power of "Seven months" or "roads"

In conclusion, They are not First in the line, but they deserve in.

And your a dumb prick.

I've read through many people's live album reviews and many top live albums of all time lists and I don't think I've seen "In New York" be even in the Top 50 anywhere. I'm not knocking your opinion, I just want you to provide a source.

Also don't go off on GFW. Seriously, is it that hard for you to take someone second guessing you that you need to resort to childish name-calling?

But he did it too!

Only in response.

Whatever I helped add 8 comments to this page even if it was petty bullshit

FINE I'll admit it, my statement about their live album was....(drumroll)....subjective(and right hehe)

there we go!

Love them. But they shouldn't be inducted before Joy Divisiona, Siouxsie & The Banshees or The Cure.
