Most people have heard every song about 10 billion times, and not by choice. I don't consider it trash, I just think it's overplayed, which may be just as bad as trash. So how could it possibly be enjoyable for you to sit down and listen to 40 Licks? You're just asking to be disappointed, and you know it.

I mean every popular rock band that has been around long enough has had their same big hits repackaged in various forms. I really don't know why people gravitate toward these. They're boring. Basically I think Bruce McCulloch was right when he said, "Greatest hits albums are for housewives and little girls."

Concerning the Rolling Stones in particular, I also don't understand how their longevity can irritate so many people to such a great degree. When's the last time anyone has been forced to listen to any of their output from the past 20 years or so? Or attend an overpriced concert? Yet this is what people choose to complain about--usually people who don't even like the band, period, so go figure. Is it the fans? I can sort of understand that. They're all a bunch of raging alcoholics.

It doesn't bother me when people say they don't like the Rolling Stones, given that they've actually listened to the band beyond 40 Licks. I mean it's no substitute for Beggar's Banquet or Exile, is all I'm saying. And if you don't like either of those records or any of the others, that's fine, at least you have something to base your opinion on. An opinion I don't agree with, I might add, but at least one that is informed. I think my overall point is that I consider myself to be a fan of theirs, however none of my most favorite songs can be found on 40 Licks. It's just been exhausted, kind of like the talk of the albums from Beggar's through Exile has been exhausted. Still, I don't think that the little songs that I like have ever really gotten their due, even though a lot of them are on Exile, and people can't seem to shut up about Exile. Those songs are why I like them. You can have 40 Licks for all I care.

I know it sounds silly to defend them, of all bands, because they are rich and have everything they could ever want, but they also seem to attract so many opinions (good and bad) from people who really don't know what they're talking about.

i really like the stones
i love satanic majasties, flowers, between the buttons, aftermath.
i dig let it bleed, beggars banquet, and sticky fingers
but i just cant seem to get into Exile
i dont know why

I have a friend who rates the Stones, but who also doesn't like Exile much. Tis a perverse world we live in.

Exile may be my favorite...it has a bunch of the little songs that I like, as opposed to the Brown Sugar sort of stuff. For me it's hard to get tired of. Beggar's is sort of that way too, only shorter. Both just stand out to me, even though there are plenty of little songs on all the others. I'm not going to try to convince you or anyone else to like Exile. When I first bought it, I didn't listen to it much. And when I did, I skipped a lot of tracks. All the other albums I liked immediately. Years later, Exile is the one that I like to play all the way through every time. I don't know why/how that happened. I wasn't trying to get myself to like it more. One day I just listened to the albums of theirs that I owned, because it felt like I hadn't in quite a while, and Exile was the one I kept in the player. There are plenty of non-Rolling Stones albums that has happened with also.

Whoah how did I forget Psychocandy? It's too hard to hear anything except the bass.

Sgt Peppers didn't really interest me (then again, I only listened to it once). I don't understand why people think it's a "super psychedelic" album.

Sgt Peppers is nowhere near as good as Revolver or The White Album in my opinion, I like it but don't think it deserves as much praise.

I might get some hassle for this: The Boatman's Call by Nick Cave.

I don't know what it is about it, I love most of the other albums, and three or four songs on The Boatman's Call are utter genius, but I can't get into it as a whole...

Almost anything from The Beatles, Nirvana, Weezer and Radiohead. Not just albums, but their entire back catalogues of music. Although I can tolerate The Beatles to a degree.

Man, you guys are boring! How can you not like Nirvana or Radiohead? I can understand Weezer, they suck. But Nirvana was great and so were Radiohead.
I guess to each his own and all, but damn. Oh well. Whatever.

And there is more than one good song on Sgt. Peppers. The whole thing is pretty good. We got the title track, With A Little Help from My Friends, Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds, When Im 64, A Day In the Life. All excellent Beatles songs.

ANd like I said before, it's not my fave album by the Beatles and it's not their best album, but it sure is a great listen.

Weezer's Pinkerton is a fantastic album. I'd rate it over any Nirvana or Radiohead album.

I like one album, (the obvious, The White Album) and even some songs on it bore the crap out of me. Not worth the hype.

The Beatles opened the door to bands using their fucking brains and not just their cocks to rock. Sgt Pepper's blew my mind when I was 12 and first heard it! shit!


the one I can think of is Nevermind the Bollocks. I just do not enjoy it.
