If I was to compare the Beatles last 4 against Roxy Music's first 4 albums, yeh could possibly do that but  Beatles would probably still win.For the entire discography - no contest.

The Beatles, but Roxy Music is one of my favourite groups and have been just as influential IMO.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

This is a massacre.  Dead  Roxy has their place, and I like them a lot, but it is far below that of the Beatles.

no it issent, any band can be put against eachother, ANY AT ALL Big smile,

and both bands are very influentual, and very very high quality, and Roxy is a very much repsected rock band, maybe not as much as the Beatles, but the band have credibility, and is intelegent enough to go over some peoples heads,

Roxy were much better musicians in their 1975 incarnation (Jobson and Wetton were in the band then). In the early days they even had Davy O'List (ex Nice) involved. A very interesting band and some classic songs.
Beatles were obviously iconic and changed the face of music so its impossible to put anyone up against them although I would have selected Queen as more likely to last at least 5 rounds rather than getting put down in the 1st roundWink

Have to disagree with you there. I think Roxy Music were a better band when Eno was in the band. They drifted more towards pop music after Eno left and were more of an art band when Eno was there. Have to admit though that Stranded is a top album without Eno being there. Since The Beatles are going to win this hands down how about a poll between Roxy Music, Queen and Split Enz, three great 70's rock art bands?

I listen to Roxy Music more, but I would dispute they were as influential or 'important' as The Beatles.

Roxt gets the vote anyway, though. I'm feeling awkward today, and currently much prefer RM.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I'm going to have to think about this, for half a nanosecond. I like Roxy but this is no contest.
