Let It Be... Naked completely kills Let It Be.

It's what The Beatles would have really wanted.

Low by David Bowie

Good but extremely overrated IMO.

"Return to Cookie Mountain" by TV on the Radio. It's on all the "best of" lists, but... I don't know, maybe I just don't get it.

i think some of madonna's songs are okay, but i don't think she's the best female pop singer or anything.

Maybe not. It's delicious.

Is OK Computer the best album of the 90s? I have no idea.
But it doesn't have a bad song on it, and I don't skip any of it. So on a personal level, it is number 2 on MY list behind Achtung Baby.
The truly overrated Radiohead album is Kid A. National Anthem, Everything In Its Right Place and How To Disappear Completely are excellent tracks, Optimistic, is mediocre, and Idioteque kinda sounds cool. The rest is Radiohead at their worst. There, I said it.

I'm kind of underwhelmed by Jeff Buckley's "Grace" as well. He had a great talent, yes. Some of what I've heard from him is heart-stoppingly beautiful. But did that promise of talent warrant releasing every little "pling-pling" he played on the guitar posthumously? No.

Another case of someone's legend growing only because they died young and tragically.

All That You Can't Leave Behind and How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. "Can't stand" might be too harsh a phrase for how I feel about those albunms, but it describes how I feel about all the critic and fan gushing to a T.

I also don't get Joanna Newsom and Sufjan Stephens at all.

"Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm not" - Arctic Monkeys

That's one of the worse things I've heard last year. I can't really understand the hype around those kids? Are they kidding? Is the british press so desperate to find a new "big band"???

Plus...

American lame stuff from the 90's: Seattle scene doesn't go for me (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, etc).

I never headr anybody telling she's the best female pop singer.
But I have no doubt putting her as the best performer/entertainer and as one of the biggest icons in pop culture.

Apart from a couple of Nirvana songs, the rest of the seattle scene seemed dull dull dull to me.

Nirvana will always for me be the most overrated band I've ever come across. I like some of their songs, but, they're so revered and worshipped and I simply cannot comprehend it. Maybe it's me.

Also cannot quite comprehend Buckley's appeal.

And, this will probably piss some people off, but, I am not a big Dylan fan. His songwriting is amazing, but, he's a singer, not a poet, and I like my songs sung with a voice I like. And I do not like his at all.

I'm not saying Nirvana are bad. In fact, there are some Nirvana - and Pearl Jam better - songs that I like. I just think they're not half big like many claim.

I was just thinking the same when I saw the thread title. Apart from some of his classics, I could never get into Dylan at all - his warbly voice always undermines most of the stuff I've heard. Maybe it's something that grows on you with time and becomes charming and endearing.

I think Pearl Jam have always been in another league compared to Nirvana...and I think Kurt Cobain knew it. He was always in attack-mode when it came to PJ. From the live performances that I've seen of both, I can imagine how he'd be intimidated by a band that were technically much better.
