|High Rated Albums I Used To Hate...and Those I Still Do|
Back in 2012 I posted a list about overrated albums. I've actually grown to
love some of these since then, and some I still just don't get.
|1||Those I Now Enjoy|
|2||Rage Against the Machine|
Rage Against the Machine
Not really sure why I disliked this one. Maybe I thought it was too messy or
something??? Either way, it's amazing and some of the best guitar and bass you'll
ever find on an album. Oh, and it has energy to boot.
I used to hate its simplistic song formation, its simplistic riffs, etc., but after a while
a realized that they were just playing to punk's strengths. It's pretty catchy and
fun to listen to.
After really getting into the song "Lightening Crashes", I can't dislike the album
anymore. It's just to serene and emotional.
|5||Those I'm Still Hating On|
|6||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Absolutely no rhyme or reason to this thing. Kiedis can't write lyrics and seldom
creates songs that don't seem randomly put together. Not dissing Flea though, or
Frusciante when he was in there - those guys had/have serious talent.
|7||Alice In Chains|
Too much drugs. It really does show.
|8||Rise Against |
Appeal To Reason
They completely took out their edgy punk sound, which made The S & W such a
perfectly balanced album, and what was left was a collection of soft punk songs
that sound the same. (Re-Education and Hero of War being exceptions.) I'm not
really sure why I included this because 3.4 isn't high rated.
Not a positive change in sound. (Kinda similar to ATR above)
|10||The Smashing Pumpkins|
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Siamese Dream was like...the best thing ever. Its forte was guitar, a sprawling
psychedelic mess of it too. In Mellon Collie, the guitar never really takes front
stage, leaving it as simply a constant background fuzz. Secondly, Corgan wrote so
many songs for the album that filler was just inevitable. If it wasn't a double album
it definitely would have been decent.
|don't get 6 either|
|all these suck lol|
|nah not all of them,concentrate dude|
|yeah all of them suck lol|
|Alice In Chains|
Too much drugs. It really does show.
indeed it does but that's not a bad thing
|agreed 9 is rated too high|
2 rocks my socks
|#7 - "Too much drugs. It really does show."|
"You see, I think drugs have done some good things for us. I really do. And if you don't believe drugs have done good things for us, do me a favor. Go home tonight. Take all your albums, all your tapes and all your CDs and burn them. 'Cause you know what, the musicians that made all that great music that's enhanced your lives throughout the years were rrreal fucking high on drugs. The Beatles were so fucking high they let Ringo sing a few tunes.”
I dont really care about the others in the hate column, but 7 kicks balls maing.
6 is pretty solid, and 7 rules.
However, I think I agree on 10, the last quarter of that album is mostly
|Was gonna post what SirDrumsaLot said|
9 is highly hated if anything
|10 gets tedious IMO, but Tonight, Tonight is an extremely gorgeous song.|
|Rage Against the Machine is awesome! |
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness goes from pretty good to amazing over time after you realize that most of the fillers are complete growers.
I understand why you hate Dirt, but I disagree.
Blood Sugar Sex Magik's random lyrics kind of follow the rap style without actually being rap? Maybe try One Hot Minute, its similar, but the lyrics are more concrete and less ADD. (although I prefer BSSM, OHM is certainly their 2nd best.)
|7 rules you nerd|
|Drugs arguably made 7 better|
|6 lol no|
|I don't get the fuss around 4|
|6 lol no |
|"7 rules you nerd"|
That was probably the nicest insult I've ever heard on this site.
|btw anybody want to be grooveshark pals and share music on there or something? I realize I sound like
I'm 12 but...I think it would be fun.|
|drugs make things cool...|
listen to love songs for the apocalypse- johnny hobo and the freight trains
