Your most controversial music opinions

All the Chems chat has pushed me to go and listen to No Geography again. It was up there in my estimations anyway when it came out so this is more of a reminder than a change of heart, but bloody hell it's great.

I'm (slowly) working my way through Rolling Stone's Top 100 albums (prior to last year's update) and I've just listened to the final Led Zeppelin album on the list (4 in total)...

Thank God for that, they are terrible. I hadn't really listened to them before, but they are awful.

But so is Rolling Stone? And their Top 100 Albums List was likely compiled by American men in their seventies with double denim and mullets.

Never read it, just wanted a decent list of 'classic' albums to work my way through and it has been pretty good on the whole.

And we were getting on so well until now...

dunno if its a controversial music opinion, it seems to be absolute 101 to me, but considering the last page or two:

 

Pink Floyd are irredeemably w*nky student cod-psych drug nonsense. 

Roger Waters Pink Floyd are great, after him is a bit bland, original Pink Floyd fits your description. Was never into Sid Barret era Floyd and I'm sure it gets treated more reverentially than it would otherwise due to the mystery around his later years

Yeah, just find myself looking forward to each album finishing!

In fairness, I think I've listened to the 4 albums when I've been working so maybe I need to revisit them again sometime and give them more of my focus.

If you're finding the albums a slog, don't bother putting yourself through them again!

Personally I'd suggest the Mothership compilation album from 2007.  Disc 1 and the first half of Disc 2. Trims out a lot of the self indulgence and gets to the good shit.

You may still think it's dog shit of course 😄

This has given me an idea for a new project for later in the year - eFests favourite ever album.

I often wonder who the eFests most popular artist is. 

Thought it might be Blur but then your recent thread tanked that idea!
