Really??? You definitely get kudos from this corner. These guys continue to be hugely influential. I'm particularly partial to 'Tago Mago' and 'Future Days' but like everything they did with the possible exception of some stuff from the late '70s where they briefly got a little too tame. There's a live compilation coming out soon, spanning the early '70s.

I've always loved this album as well. In addition to this world-psychedelic one shot deal (not including 'Dandelion/We Love You' and 'Child of the Moon') the Stones also briefly did a great turn at pop some months previously, and IMHO there are some great tracks on the 'Flowers' compilation.

the kudos are greatly appreciated! i actually have to say i love everything, with Monster Movie and Rite Time being the only exception. although my difficulty is probably amplified by still being in high school and rarely conversing with anyone over 20.

"Up" by Right Said Fred. How can anybody hate Deeply Dippy?

Agree, such an underrated album.

Open Sesame by Kool and the Gang 1976, My least favorite song of this album was the title track which was featured in "Saturday Night Fever". It may have been the one hit this album produced. Several cuts were played on the radio WDAS in Philly, I had no idea until the internet, that this album was considered a failure. This album is before their crossover succeses and after their funk god days.

My favorite tracks are:

1. Whisper You Love Me
2. Gift of Love
3. Little Children
4. Sunshine
5. All Night Long

zep's "worst" efforts still make me crap my pants in amazement.

Yeah, I have to admit to being partial to the whole psychedelic era. I was 13 years old in 1967 and just beginning to get into music. A lot of the psychedelic music was getting played on top 40 radio. Besides Sgt Peppers, there was I Am The Walrus, Itchycoo Park by Small Faces, The Moody Blues, Pictures Of Matchstick Men by Status Quo, and so many others. But the Stones certainly had their own unique take on psychedelia. Personally, I hated to see the era end.
Another great album (in my opinion) though quite a few years later is It's Hard by The Who. I believe it gets slammed so often is simply because Keith Moon did not play on it. I'm sure Keith would've played on it if not for a more important gig that he couldn't get out of!!

When this was first released went to music store with buddy of mine (now deceased) who bought the 8-track. We drove around for the next 6-7 hours listening to it, when suddenly, my friend ejected the tape and threw it out the window! I love it to this day though...

Well, we're the same age, and I was really into the psychedelic music scene as well, which really exploded onto the radio airwaves that summer with so many great tracks like White Rabbit, Light My Fire, Omaha, A Whiter Shade of Pale, Baby You're A Rich Man, Have You Seen Her Face, Dandelion, Seven and Seven Is, Wear Your Love Like Heaven...on and on.

Things really took off with LPs in '67 - that was the year I started getting into albums. Over the past several years I've tracked down TONS of this stuff on CD and vinyl. By late '68 psychedelic music seemed well past its sell-by date to me, and I got into a heavier blues rock thing. Only later on when I had a college radio show in the mid '70s did I start appreciating that stuff again. What really sealed it for me was the appearance of bands in the early '80s like The Teardrop Explodes, Echo & The Bunnymen, Rain Parade, The Three O'Clock - that whole neo-psychedelic/paisley underground scene. Rhino resurrected Nuggets and started releasing a series of compilations on vinyl, and I got hooked all over again...

For me, it's Janet Jackson's Velvet Rope album. It received horrible reviews and it's one of my favorite albums by her. I still play it to this day and have it saved in my mp3 player.

hmmmm....i would say that "Satanic" makes my list as well, but I feel that once you weed out "Sing this Song All Together" its an under rated LP....they should have broke tradition on that LP & included some non LP singles to really save that from the critical "digs' it received & I think continues to receive.

Also, the much maligned "For Sale" by the Beatles.
A lot of people write this off as "filler" but when you release 3 smash lp's & additional singles in 1 year you cant expect 100% consistancy from anyone. This LP is pretty well balanced with originals & their standard covers of Berry, Little Richard & Perkins. I think it holds up well.

Liz Phair's self-titled CD from 2003 was called a "Career Suicide Letter" in a NY Times review... and there weren't many other reviewers who liked her new, more pop direction. I love it. Great songs.

Mine is the Stones' "Emotional Rescue". Most of the bad music I like I -know- it's bad (Fallout Boy for instance.) and therefore understand others hating it. But I still don't realy get why people -HATE- this album. Aside from the disco influence I guess, which I didn't hear until it was pointed out to me. And even then, how closed minded can you be? This album is so much fun. It never leaves my car.

The Supremes At The Copa. Many think this is pop pap, but I really dig their Sam Cooke medley performed live. Hip-o Select is releasing an expanded two CD disc set of this long out of print vinyl record in the next few months. Hopefully more gems will surface from their week long gig there back in 1965.

Savage Lucy...I, too, LOVE "Emotional Rescue". The opening track "Dance" is sooooo decadent and cool. The title track is what hooked me in to the Stones way back in the summer of '80 and I bought every new album at the time of it's release up to "Voodoo Lounge". It's the album that made me buy "Some Girls" in short fashion after playing "ER" tirelessly for weeks.

I go with Their Satanic Majesties Request as well. I did edit a custom version cutting some of the audio collages and adding We Love, Dandelion and Who's Driving Your Plane. Then it's a killer album. But even in its actual state it has some great cuts on it. 2000 Man, Citadel, On With the Show. Love it.

I appreciate them! 'Tago Mago' is a classic.

I hope you threw him out of the car after he did that! LOL.

The Preservation albums(Act 1 and 2) and Soap Opera(The Kinks).....I love these albums they have a lot of Ray Davies wry charm and a plethora of excellent songs!

Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother, my favorite Floyd album to listen to, even though I concede it's not their most accomplished work.
