Just a thought I've had for a couple of days.
There are some albums which never quite seem to hit the spot...or maybe they hit the spot on a rainy day. I don't mean albums you dislike. In fact, on occasion, you might really enjoy them. You know, those albums which are part of the overall picture of an artist, but which are oddballs or oddities.
For me, I've always thought of the following albums as being odd, strange, ever-so-slightly off-kilter:
Goat's Head Soup by The Rolling Stones (weary, muddy, autumnal, nightmarish, macabre, bad trip)
Wind and Wuthering by Genesis (again autumnal, a bit melancholy, slightly regretful)
Stranded by Roxy Music (seedy, faded grandeur, glamour gone to seed)
Smiley Smile by The Beach Boys (fragments of half-remembered conversations, bad dreams)
The Soft Parade by The Doors (the lizard-king and chums meet Vegas cheese fest band and strike up unlikely frienship)
I must stress: not albums actively disliked. I'd be keen to read your thoughts...
