|Albums I Thought I'd Hate But Didn't.|
This is a list of albums I really expected to hate based on what people had told me, what I had heard from the album, their past efforts etc. and ended up really liking. Some of them are really guilty pleasures though, I will admit.
|1||Fall Out Boy|
Infinity on High
Yeah. I admit it. I like this album a lot. I assumed that since everyone and their mother has hated on this band since late 2006 that it would suck. But I really liked it. It's just too damn infectious for me not to like it.
Chutes Too Narrow
This was the first indie band I ever got into. From the brief snippets of this type of music I had always heard from my indie-hipster friend, I assumed that it was all really pretentious, annoying, silly stuff for wannabe-artsy kids. Then randomly, one night I decided to listen to this at another friend's house (he also wasn't into indie at the time). Within the first 30 seconds we were practically having an orgasm over how great it was. And that began my friendly relationship with the world of indie rock.
Led Zeppelin IV
I hated classic rock up until I turned 13. I was only into the punk rock type stuff at the time, and assumed classic rock was boring, just "old people music." Then I found this. It took some time to grow on me, but before I knew it, they were my favorite band and still remain so to this day.
|4||Nine Inch Nails|
Everyone kept telling me how sh!t this album was. That NIN had lost the plot. They still tell me that. And I still don't see what's wrong with it. It has some of their best work, I think.
Being a teen during a time in which Michael Jackson was the most popular butt of jokes at school meant that by default, his music was lame. Then I found this on record in my dad's ancient record collection. I looked through the tracks and decided to skip to "Thriller," and I instantly remembered it and the video from some vague childhood memory. Then I skipped to a little song called "Billie Jean." Today, he is one of my favorite artists.
|I actually like With Teeth as well.|
|^"Right Where it Belongs" is probably NIN's best work, imo. That alone would make this album. Luckily it has a bunch of other good songs.|
|hear hear, 1 is a pretty fun album.|
|Number 5 is amazing, don't listen to what people say. Ahhhh, the days when Michael Jackson was just a singer and not a freakshow.|
|Exactly the same feeling on #1.|
I don't understand the hate for "With Teeth"...but then again, that was my introduction to NIN.
Michael Jackson. He's lame today, but no one can deny the awesome power of "Off The Wall" and "Thriller". The latter, if I'm not mistaken, is still among the 5 best selling albums of all time.
Random question: do you like hot dogs?
|2 is a good album, but there are much better indie albums out there|
|to be honest, i think 2 is their worst album. at least it's my least favorite of the three. i like Fall out boy's Take this to your grave but i hate infinity on high. and i fell in love with NIN about a year after the Fragile came out, but i still like With Teeth a whole lot. i agree that Right Where it Belongs is one of their best songs|
|Masochist: If I'm correct, it's actually THE best selling album of all time, worldwide that is. And no I'm afraid I prefer tacos. ;)|
silver: I've found since then that you are right, although I wouldn't call them "much" better. Maybe I'm biased since it was my introduction to the indie world. But it's easily my fav indie album, personally.
|Thriller is fantastic. FOB sucks|
|well duh thriller owns|
how can anyone not like it lol
