Do tube amps sound better than solid state amplifiers?

Tube amplifiers seem to have garnered a lot of mystique over the years. I hope to be able to sort from of the fact from fiction for you here.

In my opinion … yes whether they are a guitar amp, a bass amp, a home stereo amp, or the more rare tube power amp they have a warmer sound, great dynamics and a more pleasant breakup than a solid state amp. The downside of course is the higher maintenance cost.
