Albums Everyone Loves that You Can't Stand


#1

I’ll start it off with Unknown Pleasures


#2

Any album by the Beatles or Oasis.


#3

Anything by The bloody Smiths. Awful, awful stuff.


#4

The las

I bought that Sun Kil Moon album that everyone was raving about a few years ago and I hated it so much I had to turn it off after about four songs and throw it out of the car window i didnt actually throw it out of the window, i gave it to a friend, but i really almost did throw it out of the window


#6

Benji?


#7

yep


#8

Great album, give it another try.


#9

Unknown Pleasures is a phenomenal album. Not as good as Closer granted, but nothing is…


#10

I mean, I might have been willing to give Sun Kil Moon another go, but then that man kept on being in the news for being a total prick, so I’m happy with the current arrangement where i never listen to him


#11

Merriweather Post Pavilion - brings me out in a rash
The Holy Bible - the most overrated album from the most overrated band
Let England Shake - quite enjoy some PJ Harvey, but just didn’t get it… tried very hard to

I feel better now…


#12

I hate every album that anyone else has ever loved so just close the thread because I’ve won


#13

Let England Shake is the only one I like of hers. But who cares about that.

I know this is a cynical reply, but I don’t think there are many albums that are universally revered now. There are some that get more acclaim than criticism…but there are detractors everywhere. Could be down to a few reasons; the internet giving people a greater voice, music increasingly needing to reference the path as original ideas become scarce or even the fact that revisionism is just a popular standpoint now.

I think it’s probably a good thing…we need to get past the idea of a “canon”.


#15

Dark Side of The Moon


#16

Merriweather Post Pavilion. Wanky bobbins for student dickheads to get asymetrical haircuts to.
The Money Store. Noise-trash for yuppie fucks to drive their BMWs aggressively to.


#17

This reads like a Mark Kozelek lyric


#18

Every The National album.


#19

Can’t begin to imagine how much you’d hate his more recent albums
