    Universally regarded as naff or panned by the critics.

    Any albums you listen to that you know might not actually be that good, or groundbreaking/original etc, but you just like?

    For me, at the moment, it's Air Traffic - Fractured Life.

    Lot's of radio play, lots of bad reviews, lot's of comparisons to Coldplay and Keane.

    But I really like a lot of the album, and I've found myself putting it on a lot, even though I have 4161 other tracks to choose from.

    Snow Patrol. Not panned by critics per se, but definitely seems to elicit scorn around here!

    I've got some Kylie albums, I'm not gay though.

    edit: that's odd the spoiler graphic doesn't want to show up on my browser

    I've got a real thing for power ballads. Don't really feel any guilt for it though.

    Def leppard and Belinda Carlisle, to name only a couple. I am completely unrepentant.

    Same, I'm listening to them now. My friends think they're pretty gay. =)

    They're from here so it's not so bad.

    I have to say find the idea of a music critic a bit odd. Music is really subjective, much more so than a game or a film. Plus, I can just listen to stuff in the shop, or on the radio or whatever before I buy it. I really don't get the idea of basing what music I listen to on someone else's opinion. Even if I care about their opinion, I still want to hear and judge for myself.

    I'm rather ashamed about rocking out to Pat Benatar and Scandal.
  • Deleted user 15 January 2008 23:31:26
    Another one. Although they've had very good reviews and they're quite 'with it'... Of Montreal.

    Even though it's incredibly camp stuff, I can't stop listening to it. :(

    Listening to stuff to find out what it like is easy now, thanks to the internet. In the olden days it was difficult to find new music, with limited radio, even more limited music TV. I personally always find myself very selfcouncious when listening to stuff in the shop.

    It's less stupid than a TV critic - how pointless is that?

    On an unrelated note, I've always found it a bit odd how albums never have any find of description as to what kind of music it is, like you see with movies (e.g. DVDs or VHS cases) or novels. Probably a reflection of that subjectivity...

    Death Cab for Cutie.

    Possibly not panned by critics, but they do suck, in a strangely endearing way.

    Get bent.

    True. It is kinda hard to explain to office co-workers though. :)

    That's all very well if you have time to sit and listen to 600 new records a week. :)

    My entire fucking life is a guilty pleasure, but it's the second bit I'm most concerned with :)

    I don't really follow any form of mainstream music press, listen to the radio or watch music TV, so I have no bloody idea what's considered "in" right now, frankly. I'll wager it ain't what I'm listening to, mind :)

    "Oasis - Be here now" and "Green Day - Warning" are 2 of my favourite albums but I think they are generally thought of as shit.

    //Gets panned for liking mainstream music.

    Oh, I like a bit of Mika, possibly due to voice sounding a lot like Freddy (RIP). I listen to a lot of Freddie to. :)
