THE GP CREW NAME THEIR OVERATED ALBUMS

Tuesday, 28th March 2017

We’re pretty on point when it comes to music here at GP. We rave about Neutral Milk Hotel and Yeezus, we can make a red hot go of predicting the hottest 100 and we know our cloudrap from our 3rd wave Ska .

To be honest, there’s no real criteria for a record getting played other than it bein’ good.” Not beholden to any genre or time period. If it’s good, it’s good.

Good, however, is subjective. We can’t always get along and here’s the proof. Welcome to the GP Crew’s most overrated records.

*Disclaimer: These outrageous views don’t reflect all of GP.

Views - Drake

What the Critics Say

“Blissed-out, sun-kissed chords shimmer like a mirage, Drake’s voice sounds like he’s on vacation and it’s just skittery enough to make you throw back the last sip of your Appleton and wind up on the dance floor.” Spin

What we say

“Seriously, mate. Stop crying.” – Jo, Buying Assistant

Bon Iver, Bon Iver – Bon Iver

What the Critics Say

“He simultaneously evokes the grain and expression of soul music along with the mythological echoes of folk. But more importantly, no one else sounds like him.” Pitchfork

What we say

“Just plain terrible.” Chris, Photographer.

Yeezus - Kanye West

What the Critics Say

“Kanye brags that he wants to ‘start a new movement.’ It's ironic, then, that Yeezus' best track is classic soul, and vintage Kanye” Rolling Stone

What we say

“Can’t say I’ve listened to the full album so I’d have to let my ears bleed then get back to you on this.” Laura, Office Assistant

Starboy - The Weeknd

What the Critics Say

“Once again, Tesfaye brings his A-game Michael Jackson tics, but also takes his famed falsetto down a couple of octaves.” The Guardian

What we say

“Bring back his less mainstream stuff... and the hair.” Yesha, Senior Graphic Designer.

Only Revolutions - Biffy Clyro

What the Critics Say

“They corral their heavier, visceral tendencies within irresistible tunes.” The Guardian

What we say

“Everything this band has ever done has been completely overrated.” – Rob, Buying Director

Silver Side Up – Nickleback

What the Critics Say

“If you listen to modern-rock radio, then you've heard Nickelback” Rolling Stone

What we say

“Y’know... not that great, if I’m honest.” – Rhett, Copywriter
