I think some of these have to be taken in context. No-one who was 16 in 1977 could ever agree with the inclusion of the Pistols, even if it's a crap album in hindsight.

Oasis and Coldplay on the other hand.............

Have to say that I reckon the Joshua tree had some interesting moments, as did pet sounds, all the rest are shite

I don't know how anyone could put anything by the Smiths in there.

Coldplays 2nd and 3rd albums should be in there IMO.

I wouldn't put Pet Sounds in there but was dissapointed by it when I first played it.

The rest of them I can see why some people would vote for them, but I think there is far worse out there.

My wife likes Robbie Williams, now he is OVERATED.

looks like a list of albums that music snobs have decided are too popular to be cool anymore. And are therfore over rated. What a bunch of toss.

Even if you don'tlike some of these albums they all sold millions of copies and some of them are still selling by the truck load.. can't be that shit then?

Apart from Coldplay of course. :D:D:wall::wall::yeah::fluch::run::rude::nerves::wall::fight:

Most are 'important'albums, even if you don't like them.

I am suprised by The Libertines - I didn't know it was that 'rated' in the first place. Hardly a classic, in any sense of the word.I've never even heard it.
