the cure's head on the door is great except for that fucking screw song! God how could you make something as fantastic as inbetween days and yet make that at roughly the same time.
it's what the Fast Foward button was designed for.
jumped from a 4/10 to a 9/10 once I deleted "Where the Birds Always Sing".
'Saturday Night Wrist' by the Deftones and the track 'Pink Cellphone' it's just incredibly irritating particularly alongside the rest of the album.
here are but two: stooges - "we will fall"; strokes - "nyc cops"
'Alone, Together' is what brings that album down for me.
on any other album it wouldn't! Its just an average album track, hardly rubbish enough to bring the whole thing down.
There's not a duff track on Is This It? They're all fantastic.
Cause of 9/11 and stuff...
is a great tune, one of their best in my humble opinion
is just misplaced right in the middle of the album. Repositioned as the last song it works much better.
Fabulous but Bungalow......wtf?
The track - Heavy Metal Drummer.
An otherwise faultless piece of music.
terrible piece of shit song on such a great album.
I'm a fan of diverse opinions and all that, but I can't actually believe anyone thinks that. Let alone two people.
Album: Crooked Rain
Song: Hit The Plane Down
What the hell? Even "Heaven Is A Truck" is better than that. Crooked Rain was always perfect and listenable all the way through, but half the time I wonder why I don't just skip it.
Album: The Moon & Antarctica
Song: Wild Pack of Family Dogs
Don't get me wrong, I like it well enough, but I just don't know exactly what it's doing there, a little bit (and only a little bit) like "Shit Luck" on The Lonesome Crowded West. I really love the song, but I don't know how I feel about it right after The Stars Are Projectors.
Gots to have one or two Spiral Stairs songs on those albums. Bit of variety
but that's Pavement fans for you
it's one of my preferred tracks on CRCR
Everybody Hurts on Automatic for the People
W. Texas Teardrops on Too Far To Care
I'd say they're some of their best songs.
I'd say Ignoreland is the one that sticks out as being a bit lame, that said it doesn't ruin it for me.
I may go for Out of time with Radio song, just sounds very dated and is really crap compared to some of the other wonderful songs on there.
interesting..., as i would say ignoreland is one of my favourites on automatic.
that Automatic for the People is almost flawless until the final two tracks which to me are two of the worst tracks REM had made up to that point.
One day I'll find the one person in the universe who agrees with me on this.
but but but
find the river has such a great vocal melody and is lovely all right
So. Central Rain - what are you talking about?! It's great, and fits perfectly with the mood of the album too.
"I'M SORRY!" I can't get the image of sad kermit out of my head.
So. Central Rain....you'd have be bonkers not to think that is one of their best songs around that time AND fits in perfectly whith the album.
Everybody Hurts is a good song, its just a bit overplayed. Ignoreland is definitely the sore thumb, although not bad, I quite like it. Nothing on Automatic makes me want to skip. I think during Ignoreland I'm just holding on for Star Me Kitten though, which is pure gold....
I'm not a huge fan of her new album (love the first) but it sounds incredible live!
Two of my all-time musical heroes collaborate and the result is utterly cringeworthy. Has made me sceptical of collaborations ever since.
There are loads more that i'll probably post later.
she told me i'm her forever lover you know
This is the correct answer. The biggest selling album of all time has one of the biggest turkeys of all time on it. I don't know anyone who doesn't skip this track.
...is fantastic except for one or two tracks that totally ruin it.
Walnut House on A Promise
Little Panda McElroy and Support Our Troops on Fabulous Muscles.
It goes on and on.
Totally agree about that Bat For Lashes gospel song. Dreadful.
Go on, I dare you. That album is FLAWLESS!!
Help! - 'Act Naturally'
Revolver - 'Yellow Submarine'
Magical Mystery Tour - 'Blue Jay Way'
White Album - 'Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da'
Abbey Road - 'Octopus's Garden'
I have no doubt some of the above will prove controversial...
is probably the most uncontroversial thing ever.
See Why Don't We Do It In the Road for proof...
We used to have to sing that bastard at Primary school. What's when I'm 64 on? Thats shit too...
blue jay way is brill, at least george was writing something with some vague meaning, instead of you say goodbye, i say hello.
..Sgt Pepper - "Within You Without You"
The well-crafted mood throughout the album is desecrated by this slice of garbage - hands off norman cook
such a horrible, hamfisted attempt at recreating Song 2.
that horrid vocal effect, just so naff, especially incongruent after Out of Time
who rates this in their top 5 Blur songs. unbelievable.
on the new Horrors album.
good tune. not a bad track on that album. only tracks that are not quite as good as the rest. big difference.
...that's easily my favourite track off the album by a mile.
My favourite track on 'Primary Colours' bar 'Who Can Say'.
'i can't control myself'
555- etc of See This Through and Leave.
That song is so gash
...and Shark, Sometimes and that rubbish electro-y one are good??
Good melody on 555, just too long and boring.
the opening track on clap your hands say yeah. Such a shit track.
CLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPP YOOOUUUURRRR HHAAAAAANNNNNDDDDSS!!!!!!
It's like a demented, uplifting lullaby. Great song.
It doesn't 'totally ruin' it for me, that's silly, but I wish Low hadn't stuck that version of 'You Are My Sunshine' on at the end of I Could Live in Hope. It just seems like self-parody - almost saying "look how miserable we are!" - and has pretty crappy singing to boot. It detracts from what's otherwise a perfect piece of abstract melancholia.
I think 'Dragon Queen' is quite good, despite not having much mention of dragons in the lyrics (from what I can hear).
Dragon Queen is my favourite song on It's Blitz - Tunde Adebimpe backing vox = sohotttrightnow.
found the song too horribly 70s-disco-y, but then a friend remarked that it reminded him of Blondie, and it suddenly clicked.
totally totally ruined it for me. sorry nicky, you can't sing for shit.
off OK Computer. I even thought that was lame when I was twelve! Dunno what they were thinking. Rest of album is blindingly good though.
it suits the album so nicely.
but one day it just totally clicked.
It may have been my exposure to corporate life, or a delayed reaction to my longer-than-expected tenure in a call centre, but I remember listening to it one day and it just made sense in the context of the album.
Now I can't imagine OK Computer without it. Never going to be a live favourite though!
I don't think its really meant as a song. Just a summation of the album's atmosphere and creed.
Electioneering is the one track that sticks out, as much as I used to love it so... I still do, but in the context of the album. maybe I've just been put off by knowing half the band wish it wasn't on there. or was it just Jonny?
All the depressiveness of existance and all that. Totally Disagree.
An awful song. Sounds like Cascada or something.
listening to it with a friend and he said "Why are you listening to Man-Trance?" I don't even know what that is but the comment was hilarious.
new monkey - new moon by elliott smith
two slips among so much genius is hard to fault though.
I thought waltz #1 was one of the standout tracks. Theres just something really sad and beautiful about it...
"anything is better than nothing".... new monkey is a nice slice of melancholic powerpop.
..just annoying, like hardcore chas and dave.
oh how I hate thee, such a shame as that album had some amazing B-sides.
The fact that it's a track the consistently play live makes it even worse.
that fucking "all my friends" song
i hate that song with a passion
the rest is pretty okay
But each to their own.
I'd always plump for 'Less Than You Think' by Wilco off A Ghost Is Born. Still a great album, but certainly destroys its status as an album that I love and can listen to from beginning to end (which I kind of like doing). Its horrible noise.
whereas i love the rest of the album
Hudson Line off Deserter's Songs by Mercury Rev ("we have to lose that sax solo!")
Can't Stop off Before The Dawn Heals Us by M83 (although Farewell Goodbye is almost as unbearable)
Roy Walker off Dear Catastrophe Waitress is absolutely pants.
"Underdogs" on "Send Away The Tigers". I have to skip it.
except for Mother's Lament. which is so atrociously bad that I snapped my copy of the record years ago.
i wish i could think of more
on Surf's Up. Stop it Mike Love, just stop it
is RUINED by The Baby Song. Well not totally ruined, but I always have to skip it. Whoever came up with the idea of putting that on the album needs a swift kick to the balls.
Ignoreland on Automatic For The People mentioned? Ah yes, good. More controversially, REM's UP would be near perfect for me if that awful song Beachball was omitted.
Also for Elliott Smith's XO it's not waltz ~1 that irks me but Amity, that's the one I always need to skip...
though could still do with being omitted
is ruined somewhat by 'Flight Of The Skajaquada (Edit)'
Drunken Hot Girls.
Indian Song, why it was ever put on there is don't know, otherwise a FLAWLESS album.
I'm just glad that it's the last track on the album. Makes it much easier to remove it from the listening experience.
have you gone completely mad
if there is a radiohead album where 1 track torpedos the album I think it's gotta be that horrible instrumental 'hunting bears' off of Amnesiac.
also it's twin cousin - the instrumental off of New Adventures in Hi-fi doesn't work there.
exemplifies pretty much everything I dislike about radiohead. Obviously, there's a great deal that I also like about radiohead, too. On In Rainbows they managed largely to separate the bad and to concentrate it in one song, but then went and tacked the song onto the end of the album anyway.
Is quite clearly the only duffer on In Rainbows. Does my tits in. Good Morning Mr Magpie would've been better!
Proper Beatles-y string arrangement. It would have been great to hear a studio version of Good Morning Mr. Magpie as well though.
is what does my nut in, sounds like a pastiche. It's alright but could've been replaced with pretty much any of the better tracks on disc 2.
If Dogs Run Free (with those bastard scat backing vocals), always skipped past.
Honestly... I just read a whole load of yer comments and some of you are very ignorant (lawl). It's as if some of you don't understand the relevance of tracklisting. Seriously, only things that fuck me off usually are 'bonus tracks' (YYY's anyone?) 'Yeah! New York' and 'Deja Vu' are both pish at the end of the day. But that's why they're singled out as 'bonus' tracks. You can still get joy out them if they come on shuffle/whatever, but if you want to hear the whole album, just un-tick the bonus tracks. It's so obvious when a song's not supposed to be 'part' of the album. Oh, and btw, the song that should've been left off Abbey Road is 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' uugh, it's just CAMP.
..on double nickels on the dime really grates on me after a while, it's the only one I skip on it..it's the extended outro with fake ending, it's as if they even knew how annoying it would be, it sounds like a run-out groove. It's songs like that that your mp3 shuffle seems to really like to play you.
..on last splash, it makes my blood boil.
