Simple. Name some albums that are considered classics amongst the hip-hop community you just can't seem to get into.

Hmm, the first one that comes to mind is Aesop Rock's Labor Days. I've tried multiple times, and i just don't love the album. It's my fav from him, but i simply don't hear classic in the album.

I think I honestly prefer None Shall Pass to Labor Days, but both are classics IMO.

Classic album I can't get into: Shad-The Old Prince

Co-sign Cold Vein

I liked Radio, but ever since BAD dropped, I've held that that's the man's masterpiece.

The Roots - Game Theory. I love The Roots but this is probably my least favorite from them. I just can't get into it for some reason.

I can get into Funcrusher Plus and can even understand why some hail it as classic even though I don't. Co-sign the other two. Cold Vein may be themost overrated album ever.

Shaun...Linker... you're both high. Bizzarre Ride and The Score are classics without question and that is a FACT. lol

I don't know too many people that consider Capital Punishment a classic. If they do, they're buggin'...IMO...

"Classic" Albums I Simply Can't Get Into:

Reasonable Doubt
Cold Vein
Labor Days


Albums I Like But Simply Don't Hear Classic:

The Fix
People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm
No One Can Do It Better
Funcrusher Plus
Life After Death
All Eyes On Me
2001
Entroducing...
Masters of The Universe

Drawing a blank....I got more, though...

I love both of those albums, but neither of them are classic IMO.

Dwight, I think the reason you can't get into GT is because it's blended with rock music. But I thought they did a great job with it. It's my 4th fav Roots album. My least fav would be Phrenology. All of them are great though, and their first 3 are slam dunk classics.

"All of them are great though, and their first 3 are slam dunk classics."

By first three, I take it you mean 2nd, 3rd, and 4th?

I don't really count Organix, since it wasn't even released in America until 1998.

hmmm:

Jay-Z-The Blueprint (I like this album and know it's a classic but it's nowhere near one of my favorites from him)


2Pac-All Eyez On Me-I've already talked about this one before...3 stars at best IMO


Ghostface-Supreme Clientele-I'm only listing this one not because I can't get into it but because I don't feel it's a classic...I feel it's a 4.5 star effort which would mean it's very good and very close but it's not a classic IMO


Outkast-Stankonia-another album that I like but I don't feel its anywhere close to being a bonafide classic...I've got it at 4 stars!


I've got a few more picks but these are the first ones that came to mind for me!

I co-sign AEOM and Stankonia. They're good albums and I can listen to them, but they're overrated IMO.

Other picks include.....

Group Home- Livin Proof: Great production, but Dap and Malachi's rhymes are really sub-par IMO and keep this one from reaching classic status. 4 star album at best.

Naughty By Nature- 19NaughtyIII: I like this album a lot, but it's got a few skip tracks IMO and it's not on the level of their classic debut. I give it 4.5 stars.

DJ Quik- Quik Is The Name: I've been spinning Quik quite a bit over the past few months and now own 5 of his albums. This one is about 4.25-4.5 stars IMO. Very good album, but I like Rhythm-A-Lism and Safe + Sound better personally.

UGK- Too Hard To Swallow: Dope album, but is easily trumped by the two albums that immediately followed it (Super Tight and Ridin Dirty) and a few skip tracks on it for me. I give it 4 stars.

And to Norf, I co-sign your feelings about The Score and Bizarre Ride, they're slam dunk classics, but so are Reasonable Doubt, People's Instinctive Travels, and No One Can Do It Better.

Pun- Capital Punishment
One Be Lo- Sonogram
Black Moon- Enta Da Stage
BDP- Crimnal Minded
ATCQ- Low End Theory
Camp Lo- Uptown Saturday Night
Digable Planets- Blowout Comb (luv their 1st album but this one lost me)
Shad- Old Prince
Twista- Adrenline Rush
BG- Chopper City In The Ghetto and any of his albums really.
PE- Yo Bumrush The Show
LL Cool J- Radio
Heltah Skeltah- Nocturnal

And I thought he was asking about classic albums "you can't get into" not albums you do not think are classic?

Don't get me wrong, I like those albums. I just don't really get the classic feel from them.
