Records that everyone else seems to love, but you don't get.
Nov 29, 2006, 16:46
You know those albums that everyone else seems to consider classics. Recordings of unassailable genius. At least that's what you've been told and read hundreds of times, but sometimes you just don't understand what all the fuss is about. You try and try, but just can't see what others see in them?

Well, two of mine are

Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
(well, pretty much anything by The Beach Boys, if I'm honest, but particularly this one. How some people can hear this as the best album ever made is utterly beyond me.)

Television - Marquee Moon
(Listened to this loads of times and I just don't get what all the fuss is about. Supposedly punk in some way this just sounds like guitar wankery prog with a MOR production. The voicce grates and some of the songs are just bloody endless. Yawn!)
