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

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

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

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…

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

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”.

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.
