Vote For The Albums Everyone Can Love, For July 17
Originally published on Wed October 17, 2012 10:06 am
The deeper we get into our search for the albums everyone can love, the more intriguing our findings become. For example, last week's poll, shows us that a solid majority of you don't care for the Guns N' Roses album Appetite For Destruction, even though it was a huge record when it first dropped in 1987. Multiple 5-star reviews, sold millions and millions of copies, and it's featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. How does a record once so revered find itself 25 years later in the "don't like" column?
I suppose it's not as shocking to learn that most of you haven't heard Sinead O'Connor's I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got, or Matthew Sweet's Girlfriend. But trust me, they're amazing albums, so do yourself a favor and check them out. You can hear all of the nominees in our Spotify playlist.
Here's this week's batch of albums. Just tell us whether you love it, don't love it or haven't heard.
Some of you have suggested we put all these polls in a single post that collects everyone's comments. It's a great idea! But until we figure out an easy way to do that, you can see all of the other previous polls, and vote in them, here.
