I get what you're saying, but it's not too late to go back to what you wrote off over forty years ago and try it again with fresh ears. I actually want to like everything that's considered great. So I'll try to see what others' enjoy about music. There's almost nothing I dislike which has a high reputation, if that makes sense.

1968 - In a world where music was not so easy to procure, these would always be the first ten albums I'd buy postdiluvian.

Beatles - White Album
Jimi Hendrix - Ladyland
Kinks - Preservation Society
Byrds - Notorious Byrd Brothers
Small Faces - Ogden's
Doors - Waiting For The Sun
John Mayall - Bare Wires
John Mayall - Blues From Laurel canyon
Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet
Jethro Tull - This Was

Others considered of a top 10 placing - VU, Jeff Beck, Spirit x2, Floyd, Traffic, Family, Fairport Convention and loads of others.

Crumbs, just realized I forgot Beefheart's Strictly Personal, got to be in that top ten somewhere but where? Why hasn't that ever been reissued on vinyl?

Three tremendous singles, but the much vaunted album with those songs is otherwise a one trick pony. I very much enjoyed the punk scene at the time (despite being a boring old fart at the age of 20), but I don't think many of the albums have stood the test of time very well. I mean, imagine putting The Clash up against The Yes Album? That's laughable. In boxing, it would be a No Contest. Still some very individual good songs came out of that era and I do enjoy a punk session from time to time.
