The Critics love it, Your friends love it, but you think it sucks.

Mine - Sublime - 40 oz to Freedom.
Now I like Sublime (to an extent) but this album makes me nauseous. Plus as somewhat of a Grateful Dead fan the Scarlet Begonias cover with the stupid hippy rap makes me irate.
You?

My vote goes to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. I just haven't been able to get into it. At all. I'm done trying.

Good question, I kinda meant one or the other. But everyone I went to school with adored the album and I couldn't escape it. I agree with you on Yankee Hotel though - it is not the masterpiece everyone makes it out ot be.

YHF is probably my least favorite Wilco record. I still like it a lot but I only like about half of it, really so I know what you mean.

i like that album, but i do think it is overrated. people see the title and think they're cool for liking it. listen kid, you'll never be cool.

their self-titled album is awesome, though.

No way, that album still sounds years ahead of anything else put out today and I think it's always gonna be that way. It's timeless.

Por que? I think Kill the Moonlight has some misses, but Series of Sneaks and Gimme Fiction are pretty much dead on. Gimme Fiction has a few missteps, but they're generally inbedded in the songs rather than being the songs themselves. I can't comment on their earlier work quite yet.

Series of Sneaks is earlier work, I'd say Girls Can Tell is their best though (with no misses)

hmmm, a few things.

the foo fighters have been overrated, but they havent really been the band in rock n roll at any time. dave grohl needs to stay behind a drum kit, hes amazing there.

it only seemed like the bends as an album was appreciated after ok computer came out. sure fake plastic trees was a pretty big hit and people liked the just video, but in the states i dont think anyone was calling the bends an amazing album until after ok computer. its very close but i might prefer the bends over ok computer.

hail to the thief was received as a good album, people were hoping for another ok computer, but they didnt get it. (i dont think ok computer was a step between kid A and the bends, i think it was radiohead simply growing and doing the bends better. hail to the thief is like a mix of ok computer and kid A.) it was an album by the best band in rock n roll today, but no one thought it was radiohead's best, or even 2nd best.

i think ok computer deserves the credit it gets. nevermind by nirvana is blown over a bit by people, but it was an important CD that told hair bands to fuck off and brought the music of the rest of the 90s and what most modern bands are trying to do to the radio. in that way i do think it was the most important CD of the 90s, plus its just a damn good CD.

turn on the bright lights is an awesome album, but people did go a little too crazy about interpol around that time. granted without that craziness i wouldve have never heard the band and i really, really like them, but some critics labeled them as saviors. they're just a very good band who hopefully can reinvent themselves a bit in their next album so they dont lose everyone's interest, including mine. if you make three albums that sound exactly alike you generally fall off my radar.

oh and a lot of people didnt listen to ok computer as it hit the shelves, so who gives a fuck. if the bends had gotten more attention, than ok computer wouldve probably done better on the charts. hell, i dont think ok comp even hit the US billboard's top 10.

As much as I like Radiohead I still don't own this album. I've made do with my crappy copy on tape I got off a friend in '97. I still like most of the tracks on it, but I've never felt compelled to actually own it. Maybe I'm just cheap.

Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
Love Floyd but of all their great-middle era albums this is one that I turn to least. Still a great album, but I can't see it as one of the best ever when I can think of 3-4 better Floyd albums


Beatles - Sgt Pepper's
I guess you had to be there when it came out. Listening to it now it seems like a good idea over good songs. There are a few legendary tracks and a heap of forgettable songs.

I'd like to add Sufjan Stevens' "Illinois" to this list. I liked it at first, but I'm really getting sick of it. I think it's mainly that damn choir that bothers me... I can't stand the sound of their voices, and it ruins several of the songs for me. A lot of it sounds very same-ish as well, and it just has this overall cutesiness that makes me want to vomit at times. And I'm sick of hearing about how it's the best album of the year... "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning" and "Picaresque" are both much, much better in my opinion.

"John Wayne Gacy, Jr." is still a great song though.

A lot of it sounds very same-ish as well, and it just has this overall cutesiness that makes me want to vomit at times. And I'm sick of hearing about how it's the best album of the year.
sorry, double post.

Good to know I'm not the only one out there who doesn't like it. I do like Bright Eyes though.

I'm one of those that rather likes Sufjan's "choral/community theater" vibe, at least I do in the case of that album. I have Picaresque just under Illinois, and the Bright Eyes record at number 11 or something like that, as it should be.

So, yeah, Illinois at number 1 for now sounds good to me.

Most of what I think of as overrated is probably just very popular to the point that it's nauseatingly overplayed, so I'm not sure I want to cast a vote yet.

I live where there isn't any decent radio stations. So I am going on personal opinion rather than it being overplayed. And my opinion is that it's just not as awesome as most seem to believe.

it's a good record, but to be widely cited as one of the all-time musical masterpieces???

I figured seeing as Sufjan is never on the radio that I've heard (possibly XM, I guess).

I meant that I'm basically tired of bands like AC/DC or RHCP, who just get rotated so much, but I don't think either band is bad.

Many other bands with heavy rotation aren't rated very highly, critically-speaking, so to call them overrated is kind of wrong as well. But, I suppose they might be overrated in some other sense.

As for Sufjan, I can completely understand people's turn-offs and hang-ups even if I don't share them.

I realize that their albums are loved across the board but I just have to say that Led Zeppelin III is pretty dumb, and disappointing. Not because it doesn't Rock but because the songwriting especially on the folksy second half, sucks. Tangerine makes me cringe.

tangerine is fucking awesome and my second favourite song on the album. i love the guitar effect on the solo.

That's cool. I respect that.
And I'm not some big rokk dude who needs to hear When the levee breaks to get off or something. III just never hit it off for me. It's like, I'd much rather hear the nice folksy stuff (Going to California or Over the Hill and Far Away) in the midst of other conflicting emotions. It just serves Zeppelin better I think to have their soft songs in among big rock boulders.

going to california is better than any song on III for sure.
