Albums that should've gotten better reviews by Rolling Stone
I kinda agree with this list. (via digg)
I certainly will be hunting down some of those I've not heard - except the (c)rap albums, natch. Though, De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising is good. Had rap gone that direction, I'd probably like it.
I particularly agree with the inclusion of Pink Floyd's Animals. Even though the Floyd made better albums, this is the one I still put on regularly. Also, when I went through the whole remastered Led Zeppelin catalogue, I found Houses of the Holy was one of the three albums of theirs I like all the way through.
I completely disagree with Joanna Newsom's Ys. I checked it out and was worse for the experience. It was akin to tipping a can up and expecting coca-cola but getting beer. It's fine if you're expecting beer and like it, but otherwise you just gag.
And they include my Flaming Lips, so this list is good.
