Hi everybody (please insert the usual "search disclaimer" here). I was just re-reading a thread I posted some time ago about my disliking towards Van Halen's "Women And Children First" and thought that there are several albums that have been successful and I don't have because I haven't been impressed with them. I'd like to know your stories about this. Here are the albums I can recall right now: - The aforementioned "Women And Children First". I really don't know how successful it was, but anyway, after two VH albums that I liked, I expected something different when this appeared. - Black Sabbath's "Heaven And Hell". I think I have to give this one a new listening. I didn't like it when it was released (maybe because couldn't accept Ozzy's departure?). Speaking of Sabbath-Dio releases, "The Mob Rules" was much better to me (and I played it in my turntable a lot!). - Michael Jackson's "Thriller". I don't have this smash hit. The only songs I really liked from this album were "Beat It" and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'". The previous work "Off The Wall" was MUCH better to me and of course I have it with its original cover, which was changed for the CD release. "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" made me scream and the whole album has sort of a "Motownish" vibe that can't feel in "Thriller". - Pink Floyd's "The Wall". I have both live versions from PF and Roger Waters, but never been interested in the original one. In fact, I only liked "The Wall" after watching the movie, but when the album was first released, I hated it. - Supertramp's "Breakfast In America". I learned to appreciate these guys after my tastes started softening with time, but when this was released, it was so soft to me and I didn't like that stuff (I was almost exclusively into AC/DC or Kiss-type stuff then). A friend lent me his copy and I had it at home for several days, listened and listened and couldn't get into it. In fact, at the time I created sort of a rejection feeling towards anything related with this album (A&M Records, Roger Hodgson, the songs' titles, Peter Henderson -record producer-...). Now I have "Paris", which I really like. - Paul McCartney's "Pipes Of Peace". At least here, this album was very popular (maybe because Michael Jackson in "Say, Say, Say"?). Actually, I've never been really impressed with Sir Paul's post-Beatles works. Maybe more to come. Thank you in advance for your input!
