Over Rated Albums?

Maybe the thread has been taken away because other people can feel offended by the albums/artists named in that thread..

And actually i kinda agree if that would be the reason..

I also posted a few times in that thread, but i kinda regret, since is also a little 'childish' and useless to only write negative about things that other people maybe like a lot..

Well maybe the tongue and cheek criticizing of peoples choices verged on inappropriate-I thought it was funny. Maybe we should have Under rated Albums-so I can argue the ones I thought overrated are now under rated-Why? because I just argued they were overrated so now I have to defend they aren't that bad so I've under rated them. I never was an Atlanta Rhythm Section fan but "Third Annual Pipe Dream" was an under rated album Another under rated album was "The Great Spectacular" by the Dixie Dreggs (which were just underrated period)- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_EUVUHJaU0 So let's see if we can stir this stool without creating a foul odor.

I took a pretty heavy handed poke at you, GA - but it was all in fun. Intended no offense whatsoever. Sorry if it was me that tipped the scales...

It would have been nice if the mods had just reminded everyone to keep the discussion civil instead of deleting the entire thread and pretending the discussion never happened.

I have such weird tastes in music, I often keep my opinions of such things to myself.

Believe me when I say that there is a crap-ton of bands, artists, and albums and I dislike that the vast majority of the drumming community love and hold dear. I have my reasons, and I believe that they are well justified, but holy cow do people get the undergarments in a bunch when I talk about it.

I'm mainly talking about other forums I've been on. DW is usually pretty cool about my opinions, but I prefer to discuss them in person.

Seems like the three biggest topics to start an argument are religion, politics, and music. I never understood the music one. Let's argue colors instead, makes about as much sense. I'll go first, I like green and orange is stupid...

Interestingly, three of the words in the English language for which there are no rhymes are colours. Silver, purple and orange.

The bigger question of course, is why Americans insist on spelling colour incorrectly.

I suspect it's due to having no sense of humour.

Haha! Naw, I like orange. Just didn't feel like picking on brown today!

But seriously, why is it that everyone has an opinion about music that sucks? "I don't get into (insert genre here) because it all sucks." I hear this all the time. When I was playing in a band in my earlier years, it was almost forbidden to listen to anything but metal because that's what we were doing. There were very few exceptions.

At this point in my life there are only two kinds of music, stuff I listen to and stuff I don't. If someone somewhere finds value and gets enjoyment out of music I don't listen to then it still must be good. It just isn't for me. And as musicians I feel we should be even more tolerant of others art and musical tastes. What kind of people would we be if everyone were as judgmental as musicians? I don't ever recall ever hearing actors say " I only do ( genre again) movies because they are the best. I just don't get it.

I listen to just about anything anymore. If it sounds good, play it.

I thought Orange is the New Black? Oranges aren't the only fruit? Then there's the Orange Man-you know the Tango ads? Then there's another orange man-Donald Sutherland does the Simply Orange, then another one-hmmm. Lots of orange-I know I've told you about my old girlfriend who thought orange was orange but the color/colour was "urnge. She was a witch. No not behaviorally or physically but spiritually a witch. And this is why the Off Topic Lounge needs to focus on drumming related topics.

Or because it's phonetically and obviously wrong.

Besides, for a time, we had to write "colored" above half the drinking fountains in schools. The extra ink for the unnecessary U would have just been a huge lapse of judgement!
