Overrated albums

Tnahpellee "Brendan"
The list author says: "Ever so praised albums, but you suspect (or is it just me?) they aren't REALLY that good"
Elton John: Madman Across the Water
Elton John: Madman Across the Water
"What is the water he is talking about, the syrup created by all those strings on every track... it's the lack of variety that gets this one down."
Foxtrot
Foxtrot
"I'd better learn how to Foxtrot silently out of a proggers convention for saying this! Lacks creativity in the instrumental sections (and that's such a big part of their music) (!)"
The Grand Illusion
The Grand Illusion
"Styx can do better than this. This hardly rocks and too many songs sound the same."

"This was just a rock band cutting their manhood off and selling out... but it's never been shown up for what it is"
Turnstiles
Turnstiles
"A very average album. Nowhere near as innovative as the previous one, some genuine mediocrity here. Some very generic and uninspiring genre exercises. Oh wait he got a free ride on the train, that's good."
Band on the Run (Archive Collection)
Band on the Run (Archive Collection)
"Maybe it's the WINGS that elevate this above the average marks"
Long Distance Voyager
Long Distance Voyager
"So you don't think it's a bit repetitive?"
All Things Must Pass
All Things Must Pass
"But, you know, there is some weaker material here, as well as some poor production and vocals."
Sleeping With The Past (Remastered)
Sleeping With The Past (Remastered)
"These songs would be fine 2 1/2 - 3 minutes, but at five minutes they kind of drag"
Ringo
Ringo
"Just a fairly average album, and it's disconcerting how sometimes he's being sung over by other people, not least of which being George Harrison"
Larks Tongues in Aspic - 30th Anniversary Edition Remastered
Larks Tongues in Aspic - 30th Anniversary Edition Remastered
"Yeah, it's great, but come on, stop trying to tell me the vocal tracks are masterpieces, they're not."
So
So
"The big face! Just like Phil Collins was at the time. But what's SO GOOD about SO? Oh of-course, the soy-milk name similarity"
Invisible Touch
Invisible Touch
"It sold like a kazillion copies, how is it not overrated? A good album but not a great representation of Genesis."
Master of Puppets
Master of Puppets
"A little bit overrated, hardly much different to the last album"
Close to the Edge
Close to the Edge
"Nah, this is a good, no wait, great album. But this is a kind of protest vote. Anyway, it's not THAT good, (is it?)"
