    Grimley. I thought their Nationals-winning rendition of William Tell was poor. :biggrin:

    But you must admit that's some of the best conducting you'll see at the Albert Hall!!

    I agree - this just seems like a 'who can we criticize and upset?' thread - not such a good idea, methinks :-?

    I assume you're referring to the warm lyrical sound and technical assurance in all registers?

    No, didn't think so...:wink:

    This is very subjective - we all have our alliances/favourites/perceptions etc. Don't think any band is over-rated, results speak for themselves, and can't think what productive discussion/debate can come of this thread. :rolleyes:

    overrated or elitist? Elastic bands are overrated , but i suppose thats stretching it a bit too far.

    Far better to have one about lesser bands in lower sections that are up and coming or have great players to look out for ?

    My point is I don't think any bands are particularly over-rated. They're all just bands, they win some they lose some regardless of which section they're in. Even the so-called "Top bands" rarely win everything and certainly don't keep it up over years and years.
