Those "Influential" Albums Being Discussed on Facebook? They're Garbage


8. Johnny Cash - The Man Comes Around
That's right, Johnny Cash was deeeeeeeefinitely at his most influential in his near-death throes covering Nine Inch Nails and Simon and Garfunkel. You do that, list.

9. I Am Kloot - Gods and Monsters
Can even fans of this band name someone they "influenced"? Or for that matter what they even sound like? A cursory listen pitches them somewhere between the Go-Betweens and Muse. Because that's just what the world needed: literary prog-pop. This stuff is to England what Creed is to here. At least listing goddamn Alt-J would've had the logic of winning the Mercury Prize behind it.

10. The Pretty Things - S.F. Sorrow.
I don't know what this is but it's missing the phrase "36 Chambers" and can go fuck itself in the nostril.
