    I have never heard ' Bridge of Sighs ' by Robin Trower.
    This is somewhat troubling as I have it on CD. Bought it a couple of years ago at my local thrift shop.
    Why don't I play it? I don't know.

    Too many to mention, mostly in the jazz realm, though with streaming I really have no excuse.

    I've never heard Robin Trower either.

    I'm struggling to think of another one. There are highly regarded albums by artists like Van Morrison I've never heard, but I have heard the ones regarded as classics - Astral Weeks and Moondance. There's quite a few artists like that.

    I haven't heard a Replacements album and only Candy Apple Grey by Husker Du. I think I'd like those.

    Pfff too many to list i guess. I spend most of my music listening time with albums i know and like. Although i do dedicate time to listen to new albums (new to me of course), progress is slow. There’s no hurry though.

    A couple of weeks ago i listened to Neil Young’s Live Rust and Zuma for the first time!

    The Buffalo Springfield albums were also recent first listens.

    The Zombies are next on the list. I like some singles i’ve heard but i’ve never listened to the albums.

    I thought my not hearing ' Bridge of Sighs ' was somewhat sinful being a rock music lover but as to never hearing ' Sgt Pepper 's...' or ' Dark Side of the Moon ' seems treasonous.

    This is getting harder to answer with things like Spotify around, but for me it would have to be any Zappa.
    Also, like someone above, I've never listened to The Basement Tapes.

    Guess it depends on how one defines classic. I’ve never heard a Stevie Ray Vaughan album, blues in general isn’t a genre I’m familiar with. Only Beach Boys album I’ve listened to is Pet Sounds.

    Outside of the small world of boomer rock completists, I can't say I've ever encountered anyone who characterized anything by Robin Trower as a "classic album" in the Pet Sounds/Kind of Blue/What's Going On sense.

    Anyway, I'm sure there are many classic albums by many yardsticks that I've never heard, so I wouldn't sweat it.

    Odessey and Oracle by the Zombies. The way people talk about it, I think I'd enjoy it. Just never got around to it.

    I haven't heard a lot of the recent albums on the rateyourmusic chart. Usually looking at the genres, they're something I wouldn't be interested in. If something looks like I may like it, I'll stream it, but I haven't found anything that I would buy.

    Bob Dylan. Never sat through any of his studio albums. I just can't.
    Simon & Garfunkle. Love their G.H. LP, but never ventured further.
    Grateful Dead. They are dead to me.....

    I've never heard Aqualung (except the song on the radio). Nor have I heard a whole album by Rush.

    Way too many to list honestly!

    Not by intention necessarily, but there just simply isn't enough time in one's life. Especially when savoring and re-savoring all the classics out there that you have found.

    Maybe if I could live 4 lives I could get to them all. :D

    This would be my blind spot. There are many classic blues albums I've not heard because I've never really warmed to the genre.
