I missed the point completely with Exile on Main Street.

Hell yes. I've said it before, but I can't think of a better 4-album streak not by Pink Floyd or The Beatles.

It's difficult to underestimate the awesomeness of VU's Velvet Underground & Nico--->White Light/White Heat--->Velvet Underground (1969)--->Loaded quadrilogy.

The Velvet Underground's first two albums didn't even come close to my top 100 let alone top 50

A great stretch as well, although it's difficult with Magical Mystery Tour, as it is more of a compilation of singles released during that time, with some new songs. It's not really an album in the purest sense of the word.

But yeah, still a great stretch.

. I haven't heard them myself, but if either of them is better than their third album, I don't know how it's possible not to like them

One might also add the woefully under-appreciated Goat's Head Soup to that list - 68-73 was one hell of a run for the Stones.

VU&N sounds like dog shit and will make my list because I don't own enough other albums to kick it out

That said though. I do still like the record.

I like the record too but it seriously is not one of my favourites. Who cares if it's influential? It doesn't make it any better to listen to. My top 50 list is a list of albums I love listening to the most, and not of albums that are "important" but insanely overrated.

VU&N is overrated because of shit like "Run, Run, Run" and "European Son". However, "Heroin", "Sunday Morning", "I'm Waiting For The Man", and "There She Goes Again" are unbelievably good. The rest are all pretty decent as well. Very good record overall.
