Most overrated of all time? Not by a long-shot.


That would go to any Led Zeppelin album not named IV.

Except for III, which no one can name a single song off of besides a certain tune involving vikings.

A non-anemic version of I'm Free
Sparks kicking ass
Pinball Wizard with some actual life in it

If the whole album sounded like this, this thread would never have been made.

I know. The production is crappy. But it's Tommy.

What it needed was more tambourine from Daltrey. Then it would have been a party.

5,000th post.

Immigrant Song?
Friends?
Celebration Song?
Since I've Been Loving You?
Gallow's Pole?
Tangerine?
That's The Way?
Bron-Au-Yr?

off the top of my head.

And Hats Off To Roy Harper might be the worst song in Zeppelin history.

But LZIII is tied with Physical Graffiti as my favorite Zeppelin record.

This is true. It's a good thing Page/Plant didn't write it.

It's only because I think they're overrated. I shouldn't have opened that can o' worms, but they are.

For saying Tommy is overated? pfft... of course it's overated!

If you told me you took a dump on a vintage vinyl copy of Abbey Road then yes, I would have you tarred and feathered...

Saying Tommy is overrated is like saying "by the way guys, did you know Stevie Wonder is blind?"

duh...
