Albums you think are great but are critically panned

Deep Purple's "Come Taste the Band". Most Purple fans hated it as there was no Richie, but I liked it and still play it from time to time now.

I think it is more the way the band were at the time, rather than the music itself.

Nah... I'm a huge Yes fan and there are some great moments on on sides 1, 2, 3(2nd half) and 4 (start and end) but it's at least a whole side too long.

See if wouldn't have been so bad if they hadn't proved that they could concentrate their prodigious ideas into a single album on the mighty CTtE and Relayer that book-ended Topographic.

"Gold Afternoon Fix", by the Church. They were under such pressure to follow the platinum album "Starfish" that they had a real wobble. Not even the band like it and refer to it as "Gaff". I think it's ace. And it was nearly produced by John Paul Jones..

AC/DC Fly on the Wall. Yes, the production is dodgy, but the songs are great and compare favourably to others from the Johnson era.

I'd like to hear a remix remaster of fly on the wall but I doubt it will happen any time soon.

I do agree in that Relayer is my favourite.

Motley Crue - Motley Crue

John Corabi is such a better vocalist then Vince Neil, but the band popularity bombed on Neil's exit. Maybe it was because the album was a bit heavier / darker than previous.

Elbow ,asleep in the back ,a very dark album ,especially, powder blue . Which mr Garvey wrote about two drug addicts he observed one day while in the pub ,a tragic love story, a modern day Romeo and Juliet

It's a fantastic album. Scattered Black and Whites is one of the most touching songs I know.
