Here's an idea... What's a CD/album you really like, which is NOT universally considered "cool" in most circles?
I think you know what I'm asking, nobody should answer with "Dark Side of the Moon" or "Joshua Tree"... I'm talking about albums that are either by less-than-cool artists, OR were commercial flops by established artists.
I'll start with one that sort of fits both of those criteria: "An Innocent Man" by Billy Joel. Billy is a bit of a tool, and while he's had some critically acclaimed and hugely commercially successful albums, "An Innocent Man" was pretty quickly forgotten.
But.... I LOVE it.
It's was Joel's tribute to 50's-60's Shoo-Wopp rock, and it's a very listenable, wonderfully produced album. It had a couple of not-so-great radio singles, like "Uptown Girl" and "The Longest Time" but deeper cuts like "Careless Talk", "This Night" and "Easy Money" are much, much better cuts. Overall it's a CD that FREQUENTLY finds its way into my car CD player.
Okay.... I've shared.... let's see who's got the guts to admit to the guilty pleasure in their CD case.
