Be nice.



Once you get past all the stuff that surrounds this record about how they looked/sounded(though I think only the youngest one sounded) like girls and all that kind of thing...that's all bullshit, it has nothing to do with the music. Is this the greatest pop record ever recorded? Of course not. But there are some damn good pop songs here....'Man From Milwaukee', 'Where's The Love', 'Yearbook', 'Madeline', 'Minute Without You', 'I Will Come To You, Weird', and of course, 'MMMBop', among others.

They are GOOD pop songs. IONS above, say, what Justin Timberlake is doing now. And lyrically, don't just judge based on MMMBop(although those lyrics are actually a bit deeper than meets the eye as well...not the chorus though ). Take these lyrics from 'Weird'...not bad for three 17/15/12(at the time) year old guys:

Sitting on the side waiting for a sign/Hoping that my luck will change
Reaching for a hand that can understand/someone who feels the same
When you live in a cookie cutter world/being different is a sin
So you don't stand out/And you don't fit in/Weird
Sitting on the side waiting for a sign/Hoping that my luck will change
Reaching for a hand that can understand/someone who feels the same
When you live in a cookie cutter world/if you're different you can't win
So you don't stand out and you don't fit in/Weird
Isn't it strange how we all feel a little bit weird/Strange, how we all get a little bit/Strange, 'cause we're all just a little bit weird sometimes

Ok, I'm done. It's a great pop record. Nothing revolutionary, nothing innovative, but it is MASSIVELY underrated.

It's the best selling double album of all-time.

I'm not even kidding.

And the Hanson album being in this thread actually produced real tears from my eyes.

It's not nonsense...whatever, different strokes. It's underrated is all I'm saying.

The Wall, according to this Wikipedia link (only based on US sales): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._United_States

Yes you are. It sold 4.5 million, with each sale counting for two.

There's nothing wrong with that album really. It's plain old pop music and like you said there is a lot more out there that's much worse.

The Smashing Pumpkins overtook Frampton Comes Alive and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack?

Man, the part of my brain devoted to music trivia is too far behind the times.
