Albums I Wanted To Like...

Every once in a while, there is an album that I expect to like, because it's from a band I like or because it gets very high praise but sometimes I just don't like it even if I try, here the the top 10 offenders
1Lamb of God
Sacrament


LoG was my fav band when this came out, I was really looking forward to it and every review I read was ranting and raving calling it LoG's best album, I've listened to this so much thinking that I must be missing something, but it's really lame
2Metallica
...And Justice for All


Their 1st 3 albums are amazing and this also gets very high praise but even though 'One' is a top 5 metallica song, the proginess on here is a severe turn off
3Raekwon
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt II


This is a 3.5 for me and my fav out of these 10 albums, I was sure it wasn't gonna live up to my expectations and the praise it got was overwhelming but I it's no classic in my mind
4El-P
Fantastic Damage


Because of my love for Company Flow and El-P being the mastermind of the group this was bound to be great right? I didn't like it but after reading Sobi's 5 review for it I gave it another shot, there is just way too much going on here I prefer the simpler production of Funcrusher
5Radiohead
OK Computer


This is considered on of the best albums of all time, I didn't like it but when I joined sputnik and saw the love it gets, I gave it another shot, Karma Police is good but as a whole I find it incredibly boring
6Interpol
Turn on the Bright Lights


When I heard Obstacle 1 I was floored but overall this just doesn't hold my interest I still love that song though
7Madvillain
Madvillainy


Very high praise for this everywhere, not just sputnik but I cant stand Doom's voice or his flow, some good beats on here but I think it's a terrible album
8 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
f#ck the album art


Sputnik said it was the best thing ever and East Hastings is a truly incredible track but there is way too much nothing going on in this album, it bores the hell out of me
9Pharoahe Monch
Desire


I liked Organized Konfusion and Monch being the better rapper of the group, I had high hopes for this, the critical acclaim it got was amazing but it does nothing for me
10 Sigur Ros
(no album art)


Sputnik said it was great but what a fucking snooze fest this was, in their defense I've only heard it once but I have no interest in hearing it again
