"i don't trust anyone who actually likes classic punk."

I would change that to post-punk. There is something pretentious behind critics' support for alot of this music.

I don't like it. I heard it maybe about 10 years ago, and recently I've heard some of it again. Not a classic for me.

The was released in the post-punk period for rock critics, so I expect some of them put this under post-punk. I tend to think they overrate quite a lot of this music to create their own alternative canon of albums.

I've listened to quite alot from the genre actually and will listen to even more, I don't give up easily. I intend to find things I like from every genre, although with some it's easier to find songs than full albums. I wouldn't mind that but rock critics insist it's all about albums and that's what nearly everyone who reads them ends up thinking as well (including me I suppose). And anyone who wants to know more about the history of popular music ends up reading the rock critics (eg Rolling Stone) and their lists, it's seems unavoidable. I will not just take them at their word though, if the music doesn't convince me on a personal level then I will say that (I'm not timid).

Some may well like this album genuinely (and that's great) but I really wonder if most of the public would.

except this was kinda popular... I mean, to the people who were sick of the overproduced popular music (rock and otherwise) this was great. Critics form their opinions, despite any ruminations of mass conspiracy, *gasp* on their opinions. Sure, they may write it pretentiously (and thank you for actually using pretentious in a correct context), but at the heart of every critic beats the pure binary of like/dislike. If they like something in the 80's and continue to love it, which many have, then in present time they obviously will highly rate it.

People have this strange conception that highly rated albums is just critics following the herd, as if they all get together and say "we're going to all really like this album." No; that doesn't happen. Critics usually rate something highly because they like it, and they also have been exposed to far more music then your average listener (you and me included), thus I'd say that, despite their credentials as a writer perhaps, they have some sort of well-rounded opinion and thus they usually have very good reasons for liking something.

...unless you work for E! and you review movies... then you don't have a real opinion.

Critics also have their preferences though just like anyone else. They may favour some groups or singers and have them in their top lists every year. They may spout pure vitriol at someone who they don't happen to like. Your opinion about 'overproduced popular music' will not be shared by everyone. Maybe it's best to enjoy the best of both the sparsely produced and the more elaborately produced music.

And I have heard a lot of music even before the 2000s with some resources I had, but with the internet I've heard a whole load more. In the past it would have been quite difficult for most people to hear as much music as critics, but now with the internet things have changed and a huge amount of music from the present and past is available to hear for anyone who has the time and energy to look. Of course it's impossible to hear everything (it's the same for critics) that's why people look through list of recommended music on the internet. I think there can be a knock-on effect of something being acclaimed as great by someone in a book and then others following on and listening to it in preference to other things. Hopefully now though with the internet they don't have to just look at a few famous publications and can look at a variety of opinions. I do that so I can try and discover things which have been unjustly neglected.
