I like this thread. Quite often I question myself as to why I dont get some of these albums which so many ppl think is a classic or a masterpiece. Here are a few
Smashing Pumpkins - As a band itself I dont get these guys. I tried real hard, trust me, since I like a lot of similar bands, but I just dont get Siamese twins or Mellon collie.
Mastodon - Leviathan - This album has been recommended to me so many times, yet everytime I try, I get bored real soon and I just dont seem to get why its so awesome
Yes - Closer to the Edge - I love Fragile, and the Yes album. Fragile is one of my top picks infact. Yet I dont seem to be able to get into Closer to the Edge at all.
The Flaming Lips - Just dont get it. Everytime I say I like Radiohead, Muse, or something along those lines, someone says go listen to Flaming Lips. Dont get these guys at all.
Arcade Fire - Funeral - Again an album thats just recommended everywhere, supposedly one of the top picks over the recent years.
Cryptopsy - Frequently mentioned band when I talk about death metal and stuff, I find their stuff very silly and almost comical. Just dont see how this can be considered great stuff.
Pink Floyd - Animals. I am a fan of Floyd. I love Meddle, Atom Heart, DSOTM, WYWH, Wall, Final Cut. But for some reason I cant seem to appreciate Animals.
I am gonna get flamed to the Nth power here but
The Beatles - Sgt Pepper. Just cant seem to like this as much as ppl seem to. I love Abbey Road, Let it Be and like some of their other stuff but this one doesnt rank among the top like many Beatles fans seem to rate it
Genesis - Another frequent recommendation I just cant get. I have quite a few of their albums since I bought them blind when so many ppl said "u like this? so u will definitely like genesis"
