Top Ten Influential Albums That Flopped

Posted by bmac on September 14, 2007

From List Universe
1.The Kinks – The Village Green Preservation Society
2. Velvet Underground – Velvet Underground
3. Miles Davis – Kind Of Blue
4.Nick Drake – Five Leaves Left
5.Wire – Pink Flag
6.My Bloody Valentine – Isn’t Anything
7.Robert Johnson – King Of The Delta Blues
8.Richard & Linda Thompson – I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight
9.Iggy & The Stooges – Funhouse
10.Pixies – Surfer Rosa

I don’t know how truly influential these records are, I think these are the typical albums that critics and indie record store types always mention to sound smart. Personally, I’ve only heard the Robert Johnson, and Miles Davis records, and I’ve been a musician for 25 years, so there you go. Am I missing out? Are these others that good?
