About 68% of his back catalogue is genius. 10% is merely good.

4% is distinctly average while 18% is shite!

This study has been carried out (by me) under controlled and analytical conditions.

It involved an exhaustive aural experiment which, I will never go through again biggrin

* Said margin of error relates mainly to my personal ranking of Come and the Rainbow Children.

In other words, I can not decide if they are genius or shit wink
