Default Re: What's most/least important in music

For me, rhythm provides the skeleton to which we attach all the other things. One band I've re-discovered are the Blockheads (ex-Ian Dury and the...) and they have rhythm in spades, and one of the tightest bands I've heard for a long time. They have lots of melody, timbre and all the other things but the rhythm is the one thing that keeps the others driving. None can really exist without the other in my little world :o)

Here's some Blockheads for you:

Greed

Hit me with your rhythm stick (says it all)
