Behind Whispering Jack by John Farnham, which is home to "You're the Voice" which I'm sure you know.

One of my favorites. The hate for it is beyond me.

What's not to love? If you leave the da da das aside, it's got a great riff, awesome horns, cool vocals from the B-man... I have never even remotely been able to fathom why so many people seem to think this is so bad. Fair enough if you don't like it, but there's not much to hate, in my opinion.

The Refugee is like a kajillion times worse.

Just listening to Drowning Man for the first time in years... holy shit it would have been transcendent if they played it.

All these overrated discussions are often completely meaningless. Because the phrase overrated suggests a higher rating than it deserves. But almost no-one mentions what they perceive how it is being rated and how they think it should being rated.

Having said that, I do agree with the poster.





Oh, OK then...
I often think that Kid A is being rated at the best album evah!/of the 2000s/of Radiohead. And I think that it is far less interesting as its reputation suggests, being more self-indulgent. OK, so Radiohead decides to do a Zooropa/Original Soundtracks 1 and even skip the tunes for some abstract noodling. And suddenly it is being heralded as the most awesome thing ever done.
I think Kid A is falling far short from, say, The Bends, OK Computer or In Rainbows. There are some interesting sounds on it and it's certainly not a bad record. Just not the masterpiece so many are claiming it is.
