What *were* you thinking?
This is Simon's latest challenge to me - the "top ten albums that you can't believe you bought, and just have you thinking 'why?' even now". The example he gave me from his own collection was Mick Jagger's solo album 'She's The Boss', and I can quite understand why.
Now this has proven to be a tricky one. Firstly, I'm not in the habit of buying albums I'm not likely to enjoy. And secondly, I'm pretty accommodating - I'll generally find something to enjoy in most types of music.
That said, there have been one or two things that have slipped through the net...
Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica
Limp Bizkit - Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water
Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots
Various Artists - Cream Ibiza Arrivals
Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music
Razorlight - Razorlight
Roni Size/Reprazent - New Forms
Rufus Wainwright - Want One/Two
Uriah Heep - You Can't Keep a Good Band Down
Belle & Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap
