What social stigma? Huh? And what assholes seriously claim Barrett's Floyd was the better era? Where all these douchebags so I can snuff them?
Zeppelin did completely steal their first album. I agree with the drumming point though--Bonham can't be denied. It's Floyd all the way, though. I even actually prefer Gilmour's singing to Plant. Zeppelin never did it for me the way it does for a lot of people.
Also, people who claim Revolver is the best Beatles album are fucking assholes. I hate that shit. It's not even their second best non-Sgt album, for fuck's sake.
