"To enjoy Synchronicity is to consider one's self to be socially enlightened without having to dredge up any real empathy." "You fantasize that your friends come over and admire you for having this album don't you? Yeah, too bad you can't fucking stand this shrill, rambling, incoherent mess." "All the years of Quaaludes and teenage groupies culminated in this plodding, faux-blues double LP." "'ll wonder if you ever heard so much pompous whining in your life." "You should know that Beck is the Christina Aguilera of the indie set -- sell this piece of shit while you still can." "Give it away give it away give it away now." "Most jazz created after the Big Band era is essentially musical masturbation (and like masturbation, if you must do it, you should do it in private!)."
That's just a teeny sample from the deliciously vicious One Hundred Albums You Should Remove from Your Collection Immediately. Among the skewered are The Joshua Tree, Nevermind, Let It Be, Synchronicity, Bitches Brew, Giant Steps, Dark Side of the Moon, Out of Time, anything by The Grateful Dead, and lots more. And there is also, as you may have guessed, a long list of comments ranting for and against the list.
