    I have been listening to Philosophy Of The World by The Shaggs 2-3x/year on a fairly consistent basis since The Seventies. I love their sound.

    I tried to listen to "Uriah Heeps' Greatest Hits LIVE" album the other day. That hurt! I couldn't believe how far off-key David was.

    The only reason I bought it was for the cover, and I had no idea what the music was like. It's terrible.

    "Mom" looks disturbingly like Diane Keaton.

    A remix of Pink Floyd's DIVISION BELL. It was horrible. Completely compressed and sounded lifeless. When you have the table I have and the CD sounds way better than the LP, it's a BAD LP.

    The Stones' It's Only Rock N' Roll is absolutely horrible. Something malfunctioned during the recording for sure. Or it was recorded with very poor gear.

    Are we talking about content or SQ here?

    The Shaggs are the Plan 9 from Outer Space of bad music; they are entertainingly bad.

    On the other hand, this EDM/bro-country tripe will never be entertaining:

    SQ. Very veiled, possibly out of phase? Weird

    I love the album, but it's the quality of the pressing. Pure garbage.

    Too many choices, but I think I got mebbe 40 seconds into the Shaggs before bailing. It sounded like a proof of life under duress kidnap recording.

    Very interesting ... however, it's my impression that the OP was referring to really bad music rather than really bad sound.

    Lol, start to finish this 'hit' single was/is the worst record ever but perversely funny as I look back. It is her whistling that just puts the cherry on this ice cream sundae.
