* Music/AphexTwin, considered one of the greatest {{Electronica}} musicians alongside Music/{{Kraftwerk}}, Music/TangerineDream, Music/{{Autechre}}, Music/{{Leftfield}} and Music/BrianEno, is a particularly complex case. There are those who consider his first two ambient albums to be his greatest, whilst others only consider the first one any good; some detest the manic drill n bass/drum n bass noise of ''...I Care Because You Do'', ''Girl/Boy EP'' and the ''Richard D. James'' albums. The recent ''Analord'' series, consisting of Acid Techno tracks done completely on analogue equipment without computers has an avid fanbase and yet many detractors, some calling it a masterpiece whilst others saying that his experimentation ''Drukqs'' is the true magnum opus. All the while the other side says ''Drukqs'' is a bunch of Richard's B sides thrown together as a double album. Funnily enough, his most commercial releases, ''Come To Daddy'' and ''Windowlicker'' have everyone agreeing that they're great.

** Popular consensus is that ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' was their [[MagnumOpus triumphant]] SwanSong.

* To many opera fans, Music/GiuseppeVerdi has only five major works before ''Theatre/{{Rigoletto}}'' -- ''Nabucco'', ''I lombardi alla prima crociata'', ''Ernani'', ''Theater/{{Macbeth}}'' and ''Luisa Miller''. They'll generally ignore ''Aroldo'', too.

** Depending up who you ask, there is no Yes without Steve Howe, no Yes without Trevor Rabin, no Yes without Jon Anderson, no Yes without Chris Squire (even though Squire explicitly said he wanted the band to go on past his death), and the list goes on. Getting fans to agree on which albums don't exist is difficult; however, the most frequently contested are the abovementioned ''Union'', plus ''Tormato'', ''Big Generator'', and ''Open Your Eyes'',

* Plenty of fans of Music/TheBeachBoys wish that ''Smile'' saw the light of day. Another group considers ''Music/PetSounds'' their last album (with "Good Vibrations" and "Kokomo" released as standalone singles), and another group is only comfortable with the Beach Boys who recorded songs about girls, cars and surfing.

** It doesn't help that even Yule didn't really want the album to bear the Velvet Underground name, but was forced into it by ExecutiveMeddling, the villain here being their manager Steve Sesnick.

*** It's easy for fans to disregard Genesis' first two albums and say that Collins was their ''only'' drummer.[[note]]The band actually went through three drummers before hiring him: Chris Stewart (who performed on the early demos and the first two singles), John Silver (who performed on ''From Genesis to Revelation''), and the late John Mayhew (who performed on ''Trespass'').[[/note]]

It's universally agreed that there is no such thing as ''From Genesis to Revelation''.

*** Other fans will disregard everything the band did that doesn't qualify as "prog", with the possible exception of an occasional pop song. This doesn't mean that everything they recorded after ''Duke'' doesn't exist. It means that the group's début, ''From Genesis to Revelations'', does not exist, and that after ''Duke'' the group sporadically released a series of EPs ranging in length from around fifteen to around thirty minutes, until their last EP in 1991, which consisted of "Dreaming While You Sleep", "Driving the Last Spike", "Fading Lights", and (maybe) "Living Forever" and/or "No Son of Mine". (Note that ''the band itself'' seems to regard ''From Genesis to Revelation'' and ''Calling All Stations'' as CanonDiscontinuity).

** There are also fans of the band's prog era, who are fine with ''The Silent Circus'', but would prefer to pretend the band's self-titled début does not exist. [[CreatorBacklash The band themselves]] would seem to sympathise with this viewpoint.

* No one really wants to remember that Music/AliceInChains started off as a generic GlamMetal band. Less common, but still prevalent are those fans who won't acknowledge the albums that came out after lead singer Layne Staley's death. A smaller still group of fans want to ignore everything after Dirt
