One of the most important and influential albums ever. It's an absolutely genius record. How they manage to combine atmosphere, attitude, experimentalism, and a melodic pop mentality all at the same time is incredible. The songs are just sublime; heroin, all tomorrows parties, Sunday morning, I'm waiting for the man, all stunning. To be honest, I still think, European son, is crap, the album should have ended after, the black angels death song, but that's a personal quibble. It doesn't take anything away from a masterpiece. Excellent.

You can add Sgt. Pepper's, Abbey Road, Revolver, Dark Side, and OKC to that list too and I'd be cool with it.

Those who composed the first song, would never be able to do something like it again, this happens once in an eternity.

Punk Rock is as a whole simple and generic, so I don't see how this is considered the major precursor to it. This album is way too dark to be punk, and I don't mean dark in a black metal goblins way. This album is one of the few indie albums that truly deserves its reputation as a cult classic, pure beauty hidden in grime.

From the opening notes of "Sunday Morning" to the final chaotic outburst of "European Son", it's quite obvious this is one of the most influential albums ever made. Though influential doesn't always mean great, this album is truly one of the finest achievements in not only music, but in all the artistic canon. "Heroin" is possibly the greatest and most cathartic song ever written, and its position as the centrepiece of the album cements the album's place as the greatest ever. There's a reason the album format blossomed in the late sixties through the seventies, and this is probably it.

While this album is excellent in terms of the role it played in the progression of rock music and the development of punk, glam, etc., it is definitely overrated, but not necessarily in a bad way. It just is.

Just a word of advice, you shouldn't call any album overrated after only two listens.
