I agree too. In fact that's exactly how I feel about Foxtrot and TLLDOB.

I feel the same way... but i'm sure there's someone in a coma out there because I don't consider ATotT and W&W their best two albums (though i do really like the former)

On this board, I have seen THE LAMB being (in my opinion) both overrated and underrated by different people!


Gasp! Horror!

Wind & Wuthering never reached No 1 in the UK! - Infact their first No 1 album wasn't until 1980!!


As I said, not officially recognized as a No. 1 because the chart listings were not released during the Chistmas holiday period. This was a point expressed by members of the band themselves at the time.

And sadly Your Own Special Way was never a Top 40 hit either - (but it should've been)!!! undecided


I didn't say that it hit the Top 40, I said that it was the first single to chart, which typically represents a song that enters the Top 100.

"I Know What I Like" was the first charting single, assuming you're talking about England.


Yes, I suppose I am referring to the N.A. chart success.

I've avoided posting in this thread. What I would say should be obvious to anybody... the concepts of "underrated" and "overrated" are meaningless without first defining by whom.

Wind and Wuthering is overrated.

Wind and Wuthering is underrated.

There. Case closed. grin


You're wrong...sometimes...I think. Ah crap, when can we sit down for a beer and iron this out?

I think Foxtrot is solid, but in places a bit dated and slow. GEOBF struggles a bit in the middle for example. Still a nice album.

And like I said for The Lamb, I would give Disc 1 a 10/10, as it's breathtakingly masterful. But I'd only give a 6 or 7 to Disc 2. Good stuff, but weaker material.
