Am I the only one who thinks that Adele "21" is overrated?? Don't want to take away from her stunning vocals because they are undoubtedly world class but I personally dont think it is as good as 68 weeks on the chart insinuates!! A lot of hype can go a long way...

Captain Beefheart is extremely hard to listen to . Sometimes I think he just got lucky by randomly hitting notes.

'Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)' is another album by the Captain I'd highly recommend!

`Well quite basically anything by U2
Muse: The Resistance. Don't get me wrong I absolutely LOVE their first four albums, but this was way to commercial poppy for my taste and I found Exogenesis Symphony majorly overrated, It's nothing we haven't heard on Origin of Symmetry or Absolution.

Metallica: Death Magnetic. While it is an improvement on St. Anger (Well to be honest the band taking turns farting into a microphone for an hour would be an improvement over St. Anger) It just seems rehashed, it seems as though there's about 3 decent tracks and the rest is filler.

For me its OK Computer. I've listened to it (or at least tried to) many times, and I just don't get it. I find Thom Yorke very annoying, OK his voice is alright but he often lets the voice serve himself rather than the song. Like, just sing it right? I feel the same way about Jeff Buckley (which is a whole other thing).

Coldplay's latest offering seemed fairly over rated to me.

I second Jeff Buckley. Never understood the appeal, everything seems so overwrought vocally.

I've always liked Jeff Buckley's vocals, I've heard vocals a lot more overwrought. But it's not just his vocals that appeal to me, it's more the combination of his vocal style and guitar style. It's a combination that works wonders.

Yeah I agree they are a bit overrated and certainly wouldn't be one of my favourite current artists. But I still think For Emma, Forever Ago and their self-titled are good albums.

Anyway for overrated albums I think Pavement's debut Slanted & Enchanted is a bit overrated. Not that it's a bad album of course and it does have some really great songs like 'Summer Babe (Winter Version)', 'Here' and 'Perfume-V'. But it does have some really patchy half-baked moments that do little for the album as a whole. Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain was certainly an improvement for them.

Anyone who mentions Pet Sounds is a musical Neanderthal. Go back to your three chord power rock albums...
