Did you vote? because at the moment TMR is trailing in the poll:

The nose has a crimp. The nose is limp the blimp
It blows the air, the snoot isn't fair
Look up in the sky - there's a dirigible there!"
Cheers and yes I did indeed

I mean really only one track I feel can only be compared to the avant gardeness of an an actual avant garde record, e.g. TMR, is the song Black Angels Death song and also I guess the subject matters. The beauty of VU&Nico is it perfected songwriting, or atleast conventional songwriting. It has an 'x-factor' if you will, which is unexplainable, which is why it seen as groundbreaking.

Describing TMR, its cold, its analytical, because you can easily dissect why it is avant garde or groundbreaking. You cannot with VU&Nico. And I'd rather opt for the album with genuine emotion rather the indifference that a TMR causes with me, and probably everyone else.

This is the same with Psychocandy by Jesus and Mary Chain but not VU&nico's extent.
The album was groundbreaking precisely because it wasn't an avant garde record nor was it a traditional pop record

It's one of the most influential "Art Rock" records to the degree that it's the reason the term exists

I'm definitively a Trout Mask kind of guy but I still love Velvet's debut very much too.

That's what I said "I'm a Trout Mask kind of guy"?

Beefheart was a staple of my listening at one point in my teens, I adore everything Don did

OK then, you've passed the test, Spectralmusic.

I also was something of a Beefheart fanatic in my teens, and if you are interested, here's some reading for you:-

Do I need to leave MB for feeling indifferent about Trout Mask then?

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

^ Trout Mask is usually described as an album you either love or hate, so indifference is not a very common response, Tristan.

To answer your question; I'm sorry but I had to report you to the mods, so it's now out of our hands. They might go easy on you, especially if you show some remorse.... indifference isn't hate.... you came forward and confessed of your own free will.... upstanding member of MB community....of good character....first-time offender....
