    Chronic 2001, pavement and aphex twin are all incorrect answers... Sonic youth daydream nation is a correct answer (except the song teenage riot, including lyrics, is great).

    How about DJ Shadow endtroducing? I tried so hard to like it for a while but it is so depressing.

    For artists, I humbly propose Prince and John Coltrane.

    Favelado Half to the Tower, please.

    I think that's magnificent.

    Ruta is trying to be edgy, cut the man some slack.

    Yes... They had that one song, but it was pretty bad otherwise.

    Are you suggesting I secretly like all those things, and am pretending to find them dull as a pose? Because I assure you I really truly do find it/them dull.

    It's Just My Opinion though, if I need to add that to every post.

    You know what an underrated sonic youth LP is tho? New York city ghosts and flowers. I assumed all their stuff after about 1994 was terrible, but checked out some recently and that is actually one of my favourites now

    Hollis Bloody furious

    I tend to think the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays are massively overrated... they each did a few excellent tracks, but that's about it.

    The Stone Roses could at least play their instruments...
    Happy Mondays were so rubbish they had to have an e'd up clown on stage to make the show work at all.

    Bollocks. The Can-influenced Bummed is musically tight and they could play live.

    I keep losing track of whether this thread is serious or joking.

    Any Oasis album or single

    Radiohead.....yes I can take one album of introspective misery-onanism perhaps but after that they were loaded! My next album would have sounded like Black Lace meets the Cheeky girls, or at least a good choon you could whistle.

    I mean really! They should have cheered up a bit with all that dosh, had a party and kicked back, but ohh noes more gloom laden wailing and biddly boop shite.

    JuanTwoThree I care not for the wealth of Gyges

    Any album by Frank Zappa.

    rubbershoes not the only raver in the village

    Apart from the first half of Sheik Yerbouti. That's actually quite listenable

    Ohh good call. The stone roses in particular.

    Primal Scream. It's just a wasted bloke as far as I'm concerned and some samples and posturing. Don't understand why folk still rave about them. Are they confabulating/confusing them with a really good pill they had in 1990? And I can't believe we haven't had the sex pistols mentioned on this thread.

    Not to mention the Rolling Stones, one of the few bands you actually get stupider from listening to.

    I reckon primal scream are rated about right in general.... The only record of theirs that gets raved about is screamadelica isn't it? And that is pretty good.

    I don't think the sex pistols album is overrated either. Well maybe by 30%, but it's Def not shit.

    Kaka Tim Crush the Saboteurs!

    so not shit. wankers maybe, bloated and living off past glory for decades for sure - but not shit. hugely influential, massively important, helped pretty much invent - for better or worse - what rock music is/was. And from about 1965 to 1972 they wrote dozens of absolutely belting songs - you may not like them, but you cant just call them shit.

    this clip is a million miles from shit - its electric - must have been utterly mindblowing in 1965.

    Too much for his mirror, obvs...

    And is it just me, or has this thread turned into 'records that some people like but which I don't'?

    Sleaford Mods. They had that one single that was pretty good but the rest of it is repetitive.

    chilango Neither Westminster nor Brussels....

    Nah. Screamadelica is a bit shit isn't it?

    Velocity Girl was a neat little track from their early days. But Primal Scream were always overrated.

    I still listen to both regularly. And it's not even my style of music.

    So imo underrated if anything.

    I never said they were shit. They're actually pretty good - at making listeners more stupid.

    Plus like Elvis, ripping off black musicians right and left. They'd never get away with it now.
