(since the list format seems blown up)

Rush - Presto (thin sound, the songs are there)
King's X - Please Come Home...Mr. Bulbous (weird, experimental album...not for everyone.  Too short an album)
Dream Theater - Falling Into Infinity - ("commercial" I guess, but it's a favorite)

What flaws? :D

The flaw that people hear it and go.......not pretty......doesn't fit in the norm so i hate it.

people are so surface level, lol

Mick

That would be the flaw of the listener, not the album. Sad, really. :(

I wonder what American composer Charles Ives has to say about this?

The Wildhearts - Endless Nameless

Horrid production. recorded when they were all off their tits on smack, the songs are actually still very good buried in the crappy mix.

Aerosmith - RNight in the NRuts

All of their albums right up to Done With Mirrors are just the right amount of gritty.  I even love Permanent Vacation and Pump, although they were a different band at that point.

Please Come Home has some great stuff.

Marshmallow Fields, Julia... some filler too.

The album cover just plain sucks though. That has a lot to do with a lot of the negative unfortunately.

My band opened for them in San Diego on that tour. Maybe 15 people at the show.

Toto- Turn Back (8/10)

The 2018 remaster is stunning, and really provides a level of oomph missing from the original. Still, it's ultimately the songs that counts and these are great songs for the most part.

EDIT: think this deserves to stay in this thread lol

Jeff Buckley- (Sketches for) My Sweetheart the Drunk

Since it was finished off posthumously by Buckley’s remaining band, several of the tracks definitely still feel like they’re missing something. The second disc is especially spotty.

But the first disc has some of my very favorite Jeff songs- The Sky is a Landfill, Opened Once, Morning Theft, Vancouver, and the absolutely haunting You and I.

!5 people?  That's a damn shame.  Yeah, they have some odd album covers.  I like the Bulbous one because it looks good on my tour shirt.

One major flaw for me is they cut "Move Me" in two parts for some reason...irks me because it's one of my favorites.
