Let It Be >>> The White Album

Speaking of which...here's a few more:

Illinoise - Sufjan Stevens
The White Album - The Beatles
The Bends - Radiohead

Yes, I just said the Bends. It's a good record, and "can't stand" would be far too strong of a description for it, but there's no reason at all for someone to say it's the best record of the 90's or anything.

I LOVE the Beach Boys' hits. I could cry hearing the greatness of In My Room, Heroes And Villains, All Summer Long, God Only Knows, etc...

But I cry more when I hear the aimless filler on Pet Sounds.

I just remembered one that really disappointed me: "Lifted" by Bright Eyes. I would gladly never hear anything off of that album again. Next Bob Dylan my arse.

I think Nirvana is highly overrated in general, but I still think Nevermind is an excellent album.

Their best album, however, was their Unplugged in New York CD. Now THAT is some good stuff. "Where Did You Sleep Last Night"? Chills. Each time I hear it.

That was a pretty special album, I have to agree. Just one of those magic nights. Like I said, I like some of their stuff, but, still feel they are overrated.

Surprised nobody has rallied to Bob Dylan's defense yet.

I like some of Dylans's stuff (Like a Rolling Stone, A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall, some other tracks), and really liked his latest album, but I don't think he's the end-all, be-all.

That being said, I have loads of respect for him. I just don't care to sit around and listen to a lot of that nasal drone.

Same here...I respect his career, admire his writing, and generally am glad he exists, as he's brought a lot of people a lot of pleasure. But, to me....overrated. But, as I often wonder about a lot of things, what the fuck do I know? Not a lot.

Radiohead - OK Computer. I can appreciate it, but it's not a very fun album to listen to.

R.E.M. - Out of Time. Just doesn't do it for me.

Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks. I own it, and I understand that it's a seminal punk album, but I never feel like playing it.

Joy Division - Closer. Too depressing.

White Stripes - Elephant.
