I think the grandiose nature of their music can put people at odds, and I've heard and seen a lot of people say that Pink Floyd leaves them cold. Even a song like Comfortably Numb, I could see people listening to that and going "well it's all there but just ehhhh".
I don't mean to belittle his opinion, and I hope that didn't come across that way. There's lots of music that doesn't connect at all with me either emotionally but I can still understand and appreciate that a song is played or sung with emotion. That's what I mean when I say I don't understand how someone could say Pink Floyd is "emotionless". If it doesn't strike something inside you, so be it - but I consider that to be an entirely different story, personally.

I just found this thread and I will confess to all of you something so unpopular that my friends and relations will not bring this subject up of this band because of my hatred of them and the fact they are loved by 99.99998% of the world... I just never "GOT" them or how they were so popular.

Nirvana

I have no real use for Nirvana either, personally.

I really like About a Girl, the first half of Nevermind, all of In Utero and MTV Unplugged. As far as I'm concerned, they ended at their artistic peak. Nevermind is overrated as far as I'm concerned, but there are awesome songs on it. In Utero is their masterpiece.

You don't like Drain You?

As catchy as anything on Side One, and along with Lithium my favorite on that album.

Easily my favorite thing on side 2 is Something in the Way, but even then I prefer the unplugged version. I can't stand the production on Nevermind, so the more average songs can't get by on sound alone. I really think Butch Vig ruined that album. Thankfully, the great songwriting in tracks like In Bloom and Lithium keep it afloat.

In contrast, In Utero has some of my favorite production of all time, though I realize Kurt himself wasn't wild about it. Then again, was that guy happy with anything they recorded?

Feeling Nirvana is overrated is a pretty popular opinion around here from what I can tell.

What? The production on Nevermind is absolutely perfect. Everything is so crystal clear, the guitars sound great both clean and distorted, you can hear the bass in the mix, and the drums sound amazing. The production on In Utero is great too.

Forget the grunge tag, they're ultimately a noise rock band and the sound lacks grit. "Crystal clear" doesn't serve their songs as well as the dry, crackling production that Steve Albini gave them, particularly with regards to Grohl's drums. You're mostly talking about mixing and clarity above, not texture.

I'm also not crazy about Kurt's tendency toward chorus and reverb during that period, but that's not Vig's fault.

Butch's production played a huge part in making Nirvana. The production was amazing, and exactly what Nirvana wanted at the time.

Nirvana was a great band, but not the legendary band they are now touted.

Yeah, saying they are overrated isn't an uncommon opinion.

Nirvana was a good to great band, the time and place made them "legendary".

Listen Without Prejudice in general is a masterwork.

I don't know if this opinion is unpopular or not, but was Cobl4 the one who suggested a while back that I should listen to Disclosure? I'm pretty sure it was Disclosure that was mentioned. Anyway I've had occasion to hear some of their stuff without making any effort to.... and I loathe it.

Assuming it was either WHENAFIRESTARTSTOBURNRIGHTANDITSTARTSTOSPREADSHEGONBRINGTHATATTITUDEHOME or nowivegotyouinmyspaceimlatchingontoyouDAADAAAAAAA

I like both of those songs but I could understand an averse reaction to them. The album Settle is a lot better. Terrific listen overall.

One of the most underrated songs in recent times:
