    Portishead isn't too bad--you know something has snob appeal when they still release vinyl for their albums.

    There's nothing wrong with Portishead. I just don't listen to them anymore.

    anything by radiohead after ok computer.
    What are you talking about? Kid A has been one of their best albums to date, and Amnesiac + Hail To The Thief + In Rainbows have all received and continue to receive overwhelmingly positive reviews. Thom Yorke (The Eraser) on the other hand, has been a disappointment for me...not that I should have expected much different since he is a major exponent of the experimental electronic genre, which isn't quite my idea of music but that's the beauty of it, to each his own.

    Not any in particular -- I rarely bought music. Maybe Bob Dylan's Modern Times, but that's not necessarily bad musically as much as just not the Dylan I prefer.

    Yeah, Modern Times was a let-down after Time Out of Mind and Love & Theft. I spun it this morning and still only liked one track.

    Also regret Radiohead's Kid A. And Kubelik's Mahler cycle.

    Don't you, forget about me! [​IMG] This was the big song sumer '83 in Ios - I still associate it with topless Swedish girls....
    It was also Simple Minds. Regrets? I've had a few. Wang Chung "To Live and Die in LA" soundtrack; The Jets (don't ask); Follow For Now "Follow for Now" (great live band, awful album); Prince "The Gold Experience".

    "Trout Mask Replica" by Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band. I often saw it on those "Best Album of All Time" lists that are published in rock magazines, along with classic albums by the great old artists (Rolling Stones, Springsteen, Dylan, etc.), so I bought it. Well, it turned out to be one of the worst albums I've ever heard, a load of really bad "avant garde" nonsense. A fucking big waste of money.

    Wang Chung "To Live and Die in LA" soundtrack


    One of my brothers is a big Wang Chung fan and he loves that soundtrack album. I thought the movie was OK, although I've never listened to Wang Chung and I'm not familiar with any of their songs.

    All of Jeff Buckley's posthumous releases.

    IMO "Grace" is brilliant, but the rest got old real quick. Even "Live at Sin-e," except for the incredible cover of Van's "The Way Young Lovers Do."

    Now that you mention it - that happened twice to me with Collective Soul. Two different albums - one good radio hit on each, and the rest of it: gargage.

    Speaking of Gargage...Their first disc: quite good. Version 2.0: Sucked, Badly.

    I was just going through the arduous process of putting my CD collection onto the iPod and I have found a few purchases that make me cringe and wonder what i was on.

    My main culprits are Big Willie Style and Willennium both by Will Smith. I could try and pretend I was being ironic but the sad truth is i wasn't.

    Hopefully there will be some that are worse out there.


    Too many to list.

    And I buy a lot of "Best Of" albums, because so many have only one or two decent songs.

    The title song is a moody, introspective synth/piano piece that leads you to believe there might be something more to it. But then it just turns into whiny synths/drum machine soundtrack crap.
