Generally “discredited” albums you like:

I don't think i mentioned With Sympathy by Ministry - I only like about half of it really, but the half I like I like quite a bit. Twitch is better, but to me that's not really discredited because fans are more likely to stand up for it even if Al Jourgensen still files it under Old Shame. Favorite With Sympathy track, by the way:

I think if someone did a Chiptune version of that song, it'd sound like something straight out of a Mega Man game.

Just awesome like that
@Erock: Okay, I'll give you that about the Isle of Wight version, that one is pretty awesome. I haven't heard that bootleg, so I'll have to find that and get back to you on it. And it's a given the album cuts are so held back, they saved all their energy to tear up the stage. Sometimes literally.

Really, you take that song very seriously, I never would've guessed *glances at Erock's sig*. tongue
Insert witty and clever quip here.

[up][up] Yeah, With Sympathy isn't too bad. Better than most 80's crap.

Proud Canadian
[up][up]Yeah, what would give you that impression?smile

Most people don't know it.

Just type "see me feel me 1975 toronto" in youtube. You can tell it's a bootleg, but it's good quality most of the time.

If you don't like a single Frank Ocean song, you have no soul.

“Revenge” was my first taste of Ministry. I identified with it so much that when I first heard “Stigmata” some years on, I thought, “wow, is this even the same band, or some other band with the same name?”

Metallica - St. Anger: Just being a difficult album requiring multiple listens to appreciate coming from one of the most accessible bands in metal would have sealed its fate even if they hadn't drawn apocalyptic levels of ill will upon themselves for declaring war on Napster (on top of other things). If it had been the debut album of another band, popular consensus would be closer to "great try" than something more along the lines of "unholy abortion" or other ugly sentiments.

Against Me! - New Wave: Why does it feel like I'm not allowed to like this band anymore?

Yes - Tales From Topographic Oceans: Already brought up but I'd like to second the namedrop.

Most of what I've actually heard off of Tales Of Topographic Oceans is pretty interesting, actually. Granted, I have a higher tolerance for indulgent art-squiggle than most, but it's still a fun listen.

I have to add one: "Out of My Head" by Lupe Fiasco & Trey Songz. It's a fantastic song, but all of Lupe's fans seem to hate it. Why is this?

Because it's the antithesis of everything fans have come to expect from him. I actually don't mind the song itself, but once you compare it to his first two albums, it's exactly the kind of popcorn trash that he makes fun of. You can tell Lupe does not give a shit about that song, from his mannerisms in the video to flat-out saying, "["Out of My Head"] doesn't have any deep meaning behind it, and is for the chicks." Also, Lasers in general is dangerous territory.

St. Anger

I haven't heard it, but there is no possible way it could be as bad as people say it is.

Well here it is for you to see for yourself.

[up][up]I don't know how bad people say it is, but the only problem I found with it was that the lyrics weren't very good (which as far as I could tell was fairly normal).

I guess since I'm not much of a Metallica fan, I can really say though.

...No worse than any of their other stuff. I've heard worse.

If anything it sounds different at least.

The thing about St.Anger is that it isn't the best thing Metallica has done. It isn't on the same level as Justice, Puppets, or Load, but it has some memorable songs and some catchy lines (FRANTIC tic tic tic tic tic tock..). It isn't an A+ album by any means, but I would much rather listen to it than most Nu-Metal, or any pop or electronic music.

^^^ As someone who played the hell out of 'classic' Metallica in my teenage years, hearing and reading the lyrics to St. Anger was painful after the likes of Puppets and Justice, which I felt were pretty good in that regard. I agree that the album itself isn't completely terrible, though.

Just realized I haven't posted an album by an artist I actually like. Reanimation isn't liked by a subset of the fanbase by its mere nature of being a remix album. Half the songs have the guitars stripped out and many different vocalists are featured, from Korn's Jonathan Davis to Jurassic 5's Chali 2na. Honestly, I say it's all for the better. Writing a memorable guitar riff is not one of the band's strengths and neither is writing lyrics under the direction of Don Gilmore. This disc fixes that. It fixes everything. It makes "Crawling" tolerable. To hell with the nu-metal fanboys.

Also, What Doesn't Kill You... is a halfway decent album. I'm not even sure the band has a sizable fanbase, but I'm pretty sure I've heard some people bemoan this album for being a fairly generic alt-metal record. It is, especially compared to their earlier hip-hop/jazz-infused metalcore. It's definitely not my favorite album from them, but I don't dislike it as much as, say, The C.O.M.A. Imprint. Also, "9mm Solution" is a fucking awesome song that justifies the disc's entire existence.

I definitely second Reanimation being better than Hybrid Theory, and I really don't even care much for hip-hop type stuff.
Today's episode of Master Inferno Says Terrible Things is brought to you by...
^^ RE: What Doesn't Kill You... - an alt-metal song as powerful as "The Nameless King" is quite rare.

And "Blood" is pretty fucking brutal.

Don't remember anything else to be honest. tongue 300 Percent Density is more memorable.

Rainbows hurt.
I agree with Nettacki about Linkin Park's "A Thousand Suns". Fans seem like they want LP to stay in that Hybrid Theory mindset but the only reason they have lasted so long is, not only that they're good, but they matured in their sound. Rap metal bands from that time faded out because they didn't adapt to the changing sounds in Alternative music.

What is Alternative music an Alternative to?

It used to be an alternative to slick, mainstream, synth-oriented disposable dance-pop.

After a while, I think that it became the default option.

The late 1980s—at which point the classification "alternative" began to gain currency—was a bad period for popular dance music, and even in the heyday of electronic dance-pop (1974-1983), there were still plenty of questionable performers. That said, the good stuff is... well, damn good.
