I'd love DSOTM a lot more if they'd lost those background singers. Not to mention that one song where it's just that lady "souling" around. Ugh.

I have 2 sisters and it was the 1920s.

Saying DSOTM is overrated is similar to saying Bowie is overrated.

They are not overrated. They are just too often over-hyped by bandwagon fans. It's just too damn trendy to adopt this.



And ya, there's a number of bands that have a handful of albums that can be debated as which is the epic masterpiece.

Example would be the Stones with Beggars Banquet, Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers, and Exile. All ****ing masterpieces.

Umm...okay then, they're not whatever you think overrated means, then.

Why? ... because it doesn't sound like Babymetal?

Simply put it has become trendy to be a superficial Bowie fan and i think it's those ppl who are making him overrated.
I don't know what you are going on about, Bowie can't be over-rated simply put, now if you don't mind I have some videos to watch.
David Bowie- Space Oddity

David Bowie - Heroes

I like DSotM a lot but it is definitely not among the GOATs like some people try to claim

It's definitely a bit hard to debate these types of things with you guys because we're coming at it from completely different perspectives based on the age gap. Make fun of it if you want but it's definitely a factor.

Yorke and Frown, what were the albums that turned the music world upside down when you were both in your mid teens?

What is the difference between overhyped and overrated? To me, DSOTM probably is overrated. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great album, but I don't know if any album can live up to the kind of hype that surrounds that album.

You kinda answered your own question. I know you guys hate when numbers are brought into the discussion but It's hard to argue with these:

741 consecutive weeks on the Billboard top 200 album list. 741!?!?!?

50 million copies estimated to be sold worldwide.

DSOTM blew the doors off when it first came out and it's continued to blow people away for decades.

I consider it an absolute masterpiece with very few peers in the overall general rock genre.

Of all of the dad rock albums I've exposed my son to DSOTM is the one he completely agrees is brilliant.

But that's just my and his opinion.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away, across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell
