You're not entirely wrong there but truth be told, they belong in the other thread (only one studio album, just Utopia being another band).

Sorry I missed the controversy. Indeed, Charlie said it best by saying that after a long and hard struggle, I've come to the conclusion that Boy is the only U2 album that actually gives me pleasure. The rest are, like, "well this one is better than that one but do I actually like it?" "I know I'm supposed to like this one" "I know I'm supposed to dislike that one" "just waiting for the next lyric to decide if I actually like this or not" ...

Yes, as Charlie says, use this space to air some of your personal opinions. A lot of people will probably not agree. It's not about consensus but about passion!

The Slits. Return Of The Giant Slits was interesting and even brave, but on the rare occasion I’ve put it on I haven’t actually enjoyed it very much, whereas Cut never stops giving.

All of these could have just recorded their debut album and then released singles of their better tracks thereafter:

Gang of Four
Pretenders
B52s
DEVO
The Cars
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Think The Pretenders' Learning To Crawl is their best.
