All this sounded reasonable enough and then I thought of James Newell Osterberg, Jr ( Iggy Pop), still stripping off, looking like a prune, doing plenty of songs about partying and drugs, has done...

Dressing maturely isn't in itself a mature image. I think it is about the way LM come across in interviews and events, that has to have a little maturity as well.

I don't think the Madonna and Rihanna releases are as crucial for those artists careers as the third LM album is for theirs.

A very strong first single is needed about Feb time if LM 3 is to be...

If the rumour is true about Sam Bailey being dropped by Syco, that would leave LM and Ben as the only winners with Syco. And I don't see Ben having much of a shelf-life.

I'm pretty sure Darlene was a Spector artist not a Motown artist. The Blossoms whom Dalene was part of contributed to that sound. It influenced Spector and Motown and others. That's the sound I'm...

In summary then the public and possibly Louis Walsh think XF is a singing contest but in reality XF is simply a clearing house for Cowel/Syco wannabes.

Never been in a band then?
Creative tension isn't conflict by the way, it's disagreement leading to a better outcome.

I'm not expecting LM to turn into singer/songwriters but I don't see why they shouldn't put a stamp on everything they do in the modern collaborative way of writing songs.

Probably not restrictive if you are a guitar band! They don't hinder U2 or AC/DC all that much. Slightly different for a boy band I guess.

You just want them to be pop stars, they want to be proper artists.
Better not to listen to fans sometimes.
They fact that they want to write is why I still like them.

It took the Stones 4 albums before they wrote all the songs. The Stones were known as an R n'B covers band in the early days.

I thought it was a great song whoever wrote it. And a great performance...

You might want to watch their 'surreal' movie then, 'A Hard Day's Night' from 1964.
It's got old Steptoe in it.

Well it might be because her initial success and recording career has been in the U.S. Not strange at all.

Also was the OP's point not that British artists were big at the moment?
