Rush are the ultimate Guitar Hero band... why? Because they're more fun to play than to listen to.

I used to be pretty obsessed with Rush. I'm not so much anymore, but I don't think they're a bad band. Don't find them dull, in any way.

My friends love Rush, but they get boring fast for me. Limelight and Working Man are alright...but I won't actively seek to find them.

I don't mind Rush, I like a few of their tracks.

Then again, I'm one of the few people who doesn't have the view that 'if it's not awesome then it's sh!te'.

I'm sure there are.

But the amount of bleating you get when you say you don't like them is incredible. Hence their inclusion.

You know somewhere at Pitchfork I think there are a couple of journos pissing themselves laughing.

We all know the indie hipster thing to do is to pretend you don't read it even though you blatantly do. And I think this was in their minds when they did this.

Basically they took some average unspectacular run of the mill mid 90s indie album , hyped it to fuck and sat back and watch as every indie kid on every music forum suddenly announced it's classic status.
You think i'm making this up? nobody gave a shit about this album before 2005. I saw a few people who were into this stuff saying good things about it but at least they were praising it in context , saying it was good for what it was. Not saying stuff like it being the 4th best album of the 90s (s******).

So if there are any Indie kids reading this thinking i'm talking out of my arse , first of all I don't care your not going to convince me this was ever thought of as a classic pre-2005 no matter how hard you try. Secondly if there are any other average unspectacular run of the mill mid 90s indie albums you have in mind for the 5th best album of the 90s let us know them now before Pitchfork gets there seeing as you have all this pre-knowledge of what's going to be hyped to fuck. As opposed to telling us after that you always thought it was good and Pitchfork hyping the crap out of it just moments before you saying that just happened to be one big coincidence.


I actually heard about it through recommendations on allmusic. And it really is a matter of opinion...I will get loads of shit for saying this, but the way people find this album overhyped and boring is EXACTLY how I feel about OK Computer. Its good-but best album of 90's? That sucks if you havent found anything better.

Ah! A Radiohead entry! That should be coming up soon-I hope?

Haha, I actually feel that way about both albums.

Although, OK Computer is good. Just not as amazing as everyone makes it out to be.

OK Computer wasn't even the best album to come out in 1997

Yup, exactly. Not the best album of 1997, not the best album by Radiohead.

So, obviously, I'm very confused how this has become the best album of the 90's.
