Albums I Just Don't Get

I see great reviews for these albums and hear people rave about them, but I just don't seem to rlike it as much or get why people think it's so great.
1The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound


I've downloaded all their albums and have listened to them, and it's ok. But I just don't see why people are raving about it. It's just kind of boring. Nothing special about it, to me at least.
2The White Stripes
Elephant


Just... Eh. I don't get it.
3Japandroids
Celebration Rock


I feel kind of the same as these guys as I do about The White Stripes. It's just one guitar, drums, and vocals. Everyone is raving about it being energetic and awesome. To me it's just boring. Maybe I need to see them live.
4Wilco
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot


I really like a couple songs on here (Especially Radio Cure) but I think it's way overrated. Same with the rest of their discography. Yes, he has great lyrics, but that's not enough for me to think it's the classic it's made up to be.
5The Strokes
Is This It


Not bad. Everything just kind of felt the same. Maybe I need to listen to it a few more times.
6Talking Heads
Remain in Light


Don't get me wrong, I like this album. Once in a Lifetime has the catchiest chorus ever, but again I don't get it. Someone give me some info on why this one is so great.
7Mogwai
Young Team


I have Young Team and Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. I get they were one of the earlier post rock bands, but I think GY!BE and even earlier post rock like Slint blow them out of the water. They aren't bad. I just think they're overrated.
8Circa Survive
Blue Sky Noise


I like a few songs (Get Out, Glass Arrows) but after a while they all feel the same.
9 Modest Mouse
The Moon and Antartica


It was good. But not great. I'll probably check it out again.
10Bob Dylan
Blonde on Blonde


He writes some decent songs, but that's about it.
