Don't stream it!
Buy a used copy, cheap. Put it on the table. Sit back, and get ready to be awed!
Any Grateful Dead albums that are considered classics.
I’ve listened to The Stones on compilations but never heard any of their classic albums all the way through properly.
you guys are killing me
I hear ya.
Did someone say they had never heard ' Blonde on Blonde '?
Never even heard OF Madvillian. Have no interest in Lamar or West. Just heard Hill for the first time last week after buying the CD for $5 at Big Lots.
Paranoid was the first album I ever bought.
Not being a "rock" guy, there isn't a "classic" I haven't wondered, "now, what makes this thing a 'classic' in the first place..." I don't even believe in the term "classic" that way.
I've read about it 1000 times but never made the effort for whatever reason.
It is a great album but I still wanted Son Of Rumours or maybe Sister Of Rumours.
Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica
Seeing someone mention Van Morrison above, I love Van!
I really like most everything I've ever heard him do, ever, anytime any place.
The only Van LP I own, IIRC is Moondance.
Never heard Astral Weeks in it's entirety ever!
Why I don't know.
Such great times we live in that the most obscure stuff is right at our fingertips now...it's lack of time rather than lack of access that keeps me from hearing any type of music.
I’m inclined to say, if I haven’t heard it, it isn’t a classic. Just by virtue of 40+ years of active listening.
There are likely ‘classic’ Queen and Rush albums that I have heard very little of.
I didn't hear "Blonde On Blonde" in it's entirety until 2010...when I bought the CD. Did it live up to its reputation? Absolutely...it's terrific!
Any so called classic album by The Rolling Stones because I just know I wouldn't like them!
Frampton Comes Alive
Not sure I've ever listened to Thriller in its entirety. Dunno if I've ever heard AC/DC's Back In Black either.
No rush. It's an amazing album which, whenever you get round to it, will still be an absolute treat.
Any U2 or R.E.M., Achtung Boy, New Hi-Fi for the People or whatever. Their singles seemed so ubiquitous when I was growing up that I never felt the need.
XTC. Never heard or owned any.
Van Halen. Sure I have heard many various tracks, but never heard or owned any complete albums.
Nick Drake. I checked out a compilation CD (Introduction to ND IIRC) from a local library, but it was so scratched I only made it through half a song.
I don't mean this in a negative way, but how is this even possible? At the very least, music from most of this list has crept it's way into TV ads, movie soundtracks, etc. You would almost PURPOSELY have to avoid some of this music.
Listening to "Blonde on Blonde" and "Blood on the Tracks" are akin to a religious experience (as is Moondance). Two of Bob's best for sure.
I own no Procal Harum or Zombies, though I like both bands.
Getz/Gilberto - Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto
i've never listened to it in it's entirety
Lots. I still don't own any AC/DC records, even though I love the band and am well familiar with a lot of their stuff. Still waiting for that Greatest Hits album I guess.
Janis Joplin - Pearl
I agree...it's a great album but I wouldn't put it above Highway 61 or Blonde On Blonde like some do.
Yes, indeed. Don’t watch any modern TV…haven’t been to a theater since 1993 and don’t really miss any of the above.
I am an outlier, I realize…
also, the reference was to having heard the album - not a song or a snippet. Perhaps I mis-interpreted though?
