Unpopular Opinions Thread

Post by TripleJay97 » 10 Nov 2015, 10:41

We have an unpopular Blur opinions thread, why not one for general music? Be civil.

I dislike R.E.M.'s Monster. I don't think it's the worst thing ever, there are a few good tracks here and there, but I do not understand the comparisons with their best work.

Definitely Maybe is boring. It may have been a product of its time or whatever. I don't really get it.

Pre-80's Pink Floyd never released anything bad. I adore Atom Heart Mother and A Saucerful of Secrets, they're up there with the classics for me.

See Overrated Music thread

Positive:

Some of some of the highlights:

U2's 90s career was their best (including past Achtung Baby). And Pop is a masterpiece.
The most overrated artists: The Strokes, The Libertines, Pavement, Bruce Springsteen, Adele
The most overrated albums: Is This It, Up the Bracket, Slanted and Enchanted, Crooked Rain Crooked Rain, lots of others
The Style Council were still good post-1986

There's only one good melody in Currents and it's on the first track.
Guided By Voices may have released millions of songs but most of them are ultimately unremarkable and forgettable.
The Clash were better when Mick Jones sang lead (is this unpopular? I'm not sure).
Kurt Cobain couldn't write a melody to save his life and all he ever did was introducing alternative aesthetics from the 80s into the mainstream.

Yup, although Innuendo is well worth a listen, the rest of their material is unbearable.

Overrated? Yes. The most overrated? No. That honor goes to these guys.

the only good punk band is Minutemen, and even they're pretty hit-or-miss

I do agree with FML on that one. Maybe I wouldn't call them overrated, but I don't like them except for some songs.

The Doors are boring.
New Order are a lot better than Joy Division.
Sleater-Kinney are probably the greatest rock band since the mid-90s.
