I don’t know. But there must be millions. This post was inspired by @TeaCrullers’ apparent refusal to listen to debut LPs as discussed in the 2020 albums hype thread.
leisure is the first one that springs to mind
Didn’t like the 1st Horrors album. Primary Colours is great. only recent example I can really think of.
David Bowie (self-titled)
My sister saw the Horrors on the 2006 NME tour and thought they were so terrible she refused to ever listen to them again. So even now she thinks they still sound exactly like they did on Strange House
It’s actually their second album, Modern Life, that I hear people dismissing most often.
Mate of mine has done exactly the same thing.
The first Cure album is pretty ropey (although I know a lot of that was outside the band’s control), that cover of Foxy Lady
“Turned out to be great”
I knew someone would say it (eye roll)
The first sigur ros album was a bit naff for the most part despite having a couple good tracks
This reply happened even faster than I was expecting
Who are these people??
Nah, people love ‘Modern Life’! It is, rightly, seen as a classic album.
‘Leisure’ does have a few good songs on it (‘She’s So High’, ‘Sing’ & ‘Fool’). It is pretty ordinary though. Honorable mention for ‘I Know’ though, which wasn’t on the album.
Can I just distance myself from all these other numbskulls and say that I throughly enjoyed this joke.
Modern Life - Is Rubbish
I’m holding on for to-morr-ow
