What's that album that, given what you listen to and your overall taste you know you should absolutely love, but whenever you've tried to get into it has just left you cold?

Oh, and try and think of bands other than Sonic Youth.

Here's mine: bearing in mind that I'm a TOTAL Pussy Galore fanatic, I just hate Dial M for Motherfucker. How weird is THAT!?!

A lot of people feel like that about Marquee Moon. Whilst it's possibly my fave album ever, it has this thing about it (a bit like Patti Smith's Horses) where it doesn't sound like you thought it might. It has all these punk associations but sounds nothing like what people imagine a punk album is gonna sound like.

Well, the reason I haven't gotten into it (Marquee Moon) isn't because my expectations weren't met. I didn't have any expectations as far as I can remember. It sounds to me like bad prog rock glazed over with a thin layer of NYC art scene posturing. But that's not why I've failed to enjoy it. I just find it boring, and that's about the worst thing I ever say about any music.

Weird thing is, I LOVE Blank Generation.

black flag - damaged


I like some of it--- but i normally don't get past the half way point. I prefer pre rollins-- and i think that's kinda screwy for black flagfandom

i never understand these threads, there are no albums that i SHOULD like but don't. why should i like something because it is considered classic or great by others, i just don't get it, i like what i like and i dislike what i dislike end of story.

Very predictable response... next time, READ THE QUESTION BETTER.

The word "should" here doesn't imply responsibility, but rather just a statistical likelihood. No one has completely random musical tastes.


So, it goes like this: Based on everything else Y likes, it is likely that Y will like X. If Y doesn't like X, Y should say it in this thread. That is, if Y has nothing better to do and feels like it. That's it.

It's not as good as their other albums and it takes a while to get used to. It's one of those albums you don't feel until a certain time and place.
