Oi! I love them two!!

Used to think Pet Sounds was over-rated to be honest. And then at some point...I changed my mind! The re-mastered Marquee Moon is amazing. Adventure was seriously disappointing at the time though.

Like a few other people here, I don't get the fuss about The Stone Roses either. Liked a couple of tracks (and loved the later Fools Gold), but best album? Do me a favour!

Others that I think are really over-rated...

The Clash - London Calling
A few good tracks (great title track, and love Brand New Cadillac), but it's not great. Prefer the under-rated Combat Rock myself.

Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street
Don't get all the fuss about this at all. Like Tumblin' Dice, but much of the rest of it sounds half-arsed. Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed and Sticky Fingers are miles better imo. Actually, I prefer It's Only Rock'n'Roll, too.

MC5 - Back In The USA
As Bubblehead asked 'where's the dynamism?'. OK, it's old, but they were contemporaries of The Stooges, and just don't compare. Having said, that I love Looking At You.
