^ I would agree with that, just because of how much i hate Liverpool. :P

Although, Eindhoven was a nice place, i don't like it, too many bad memories.

Liverpool only has 2 or 3 highrises. The skyline is too small and not comparable to Paris, Frankfurt, Rotterdam, Warsaw, London or Madrid. I don´t understand why is Liverpool in this list, or Birmingham, and why Barcelona, for example, doesnt appears in the list...

Some pictures of Barcelona:

I dont rate Barcelona becuse while it has highrises they dont form a very distinct, aesthetically pleasing skyline (or at least ive never seen a good picture of it, please proove me wrong) the fact you posted pictures of individual buildings rather than a skyline image kind of prooves this. London's individual skyscraper clusters dont have as many scrapers as Paris la defense, should London be discounted because of this? no same reason why Liverpool is just as worthy as any other european city, the skyscrpaers look good and the pierhead adds an extra dimention which along with the waterfront setting gives a very pleasing on the eye skyline. Looking at the pictures here i would say liverpool was far nicer than Eindhoven and Birmingham more impressive than Barcelona (restricting myself to skylines only, like i said i like viewing pictures of the skylines so proove me wrong ).

I like the last picture, but the others show that the skyline is has a very nice base for some taller buildings, but all the buildings have a very similar height and form quite a boring looking skyline IMO. There is no up and down in the skyline like you see in frankfurt, warsaw, liverpool etc. and why i personally dont rate it (but this is my personal taste for skylines except la defense because of the grand arch and new taller towers).

Portsmouth
