Fair enough, it’s pretty much a Walters solo thing but with the added bonus of Dave on guitar.
Genesis - Calling All Stations.
Probably because it hasn't got bloody Phil Collins on it.
I think this album is great, but seem to get overlooked:
I still listen to Yes, Asia, Bad Company, Cheap Trick, Jefferson Airplane/Starship. A lot of music that was pretty good back in the day, still is good, lost some of it's popularity. I skipped Nirvana, but enjoyed Pearl Jam & others. Creed I listen to still. Here's one, Nickelback is hated, but some of their music was pretty good in comparison to what is top 40 for nearly the last 15 years. Tool, Godsmack, Imagine Dragons has some hits. Winger, the list is endless. There are even some better EDM songs that are dated hits that are better than a majority of the top 40 today. Hip Hop, I just don't get it, never will, rap and similar had it's golden era & Guilded Age. I missed that, won't ever appreciate even much of the best of that.
I see the old guys driving up listening to classic rock and instead of getting out of their 60's/70's muscle cars they get out of modern muscle cars or a luxury sedan, either way they are cooler than the generations that follow them listening to their Bieber hits. As for radio, what a mess that playlist is, but for some strange reason the format of several decades 80's to present actually works sometimes for me to hear the better songs of all decades in a random mix.
Almost forgot too, the classic Southern Rock is something that is actually quite good. I do live near Jacksonville, FL, so go figure that Lynrd Skynrd or Allman Brothers would be played regularly. Maybe I've been airplayed into submission. But "Green Grass & High Tides" is 10-23 minutes of instrumentals & vocals that is something I can sit thru and not feel like anyone tortured/waterboarded me to listen to. Can't say that about rap or hip hop.
I don’t even OWN a tv, man!
I like Van Halen OU812. One of the first cd’s I bought after buying a CD player.
Off the top of my head personal favorites that get overlooked. Joe Jackson - Live 1980/1986, Steel Pulse - True Democracy, U2 - Unforgettable Fire, The Doors - Morrison Hotel. That last one for me is worthy of being in the discussion of 5 best of all time. Bold statement, but it just flows really well. Anyways, everyone have a great day!
Captain Beefheart - take your pick
Jesse Winchester - take your pick
Albert King - Live Wire / Blues Power
Ry Cooder - take your pick
I like that album a lot but Some Girls was a hit album, so doesn't count. It had several hit singles - Miss You was HUGE. Then there were the other hit singles, Beast of Burden, Respectable, Shattered. It got mostly favorable reviews, actually very favorable. It sold very well so it shouldn't be on anyone's list in this thread.
Lester Bangs was wrong about so much. He had a myopic view of what good rock music was. I think of him as a man with blinders on his ears.
Led Zeppellin III
Someone mentioned In Through The Out Door. I didn't think it was particularly unpopular (see CODA), but I liked that album.
Probably Famous Last Words by Supertramp.
Yes, it's no Breakfast In America, but definitely a must own if you need to listen to It's Raining Again.
Motörhead - Another Perfect Day
6 million copies sold and knocked the Beatles off the #1 spot is unpopular?
Pretty much any album by Jeff Beck and Eric Johnson. Venus Isle for instance by EJ. Emotion & Commotion, and Loud Hailer from Jeff Beck are awesome.
Agreed Side 1. A film I only ever watch on my own. Ooh!
Vanilla Fudge. The Beat Goes On.
Why, oh why, oh why?
Sold my first copy. Got another, though.
I’m In You - Peter Frampton
Venus Isle by EJ was ripped to pieces. As much as I like him, not sure I want to stick up for that album.
One album that has been getting regular play lately is Stained Class by Judas Priest. I have seen Iron Maiden mentioned a few times in this thread so here's a shout out for Somewhere In Time.
