I know these have to be full of hyperbole, but is it just me, or do other people roll their eyes (or worse) at bands who don't even know what their own chart feats are, or exaggerate them needlessly when the real ones are impressive enough as it is? Chicago are notorious for this and now the LRB press release states 'They also set a record for having Top 10 hits for 6 consecutive years… the first band to achieve that mark'.

Well, um, the first band to achieve that mark. Really? I didn't realise that LRB were around before the Beatles! But, more importantly, the feat they *actually* acheived was to have a US top ten hit every year from 1978-1982 inclusive (now you tell me, how many years is that???) and WERE THE ONLY BAND TO DO SO. Not quite the same thing, but as I say, still impressive in it's own right...but then, maybe if they had somebody in the band who was there for all of the 78-82 period they'd get these things right...

And breathe out! ;-)
