it's a beautiful journey to nowhere.

Kid A (song) does everything Pulk does a million times better.

I like this a lot

I'm currious about this Amok backlash all of a sudden. I don't recall many negative comments when it was released. I liked it then and still like it now.

Agreed.

Here's one: Mrs. Robinson is a terrible song in all of its versions.

I thought the original was by Roy Orbison, I've only just now discovered it was by Simon and Garfunkel. I don't mind that version. The Lemonheads cover is the worst.

I have never liked The Lemonheads cover either. I always listen to It's A Shame About Ray without it.

Bookends is one of the greatest albums ever btw.

Not sure if this is unpopular, but Back in Black is a great album. One of the many I grew up on, and the only AC/DC album I've heard in full. I don't need to hear another, because no one needs more than one AC/DC album because their sound has never changed, and all their big hits are that ubiquitous anyway.

But yeah, Back in Black is great. Hells Bells is a wicked opener, Shoot to Thrill is great, Back in Black too, You Shook Me All Night Long is a classic.

I think in most places it'd be regarded as a popular opinion, actually. I have no time for that album or them in general though.

Even though I've listened to it three times now, HAIM's album does nothing for me, aside from "The Wire."

The two best songs on Kid A are the title track and Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Ha, just saw this bumped and wanted to come in with a Kid A comment. It's just not very good. Only songs I remotely enjoy on it are Optimistic and Treefingers. (which I think is the instrumental one)

I just don't get all of the love for that album.

They are easily the two worst songs.
