10 "uncool" records that are anything but.

A Listmania! list by Owen Noakes (Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom)
 
Rumours
1.  Rumours by Fleetwood Mac
The list author says:
  "It should be everything you should hate - plastic, over produced American rubbish. Instead it's a lush, georgous coked up beast of a record. Genius."
5.34   Used & New from: 1.68
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (479 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Middle Of Nowhere
2.  Middle Of Nowhere by Hanson
The list author says:
  "One of the greatest pop albums of the past decade."
9.50   Used & New from: 0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Appetite For Destruction
3.  Appetite For Destruction by Guns N' Roses
The list author says:
  "I can't begin to describe how exciting all that swearing and sexism was to a 12 year old boy, how repellent is was to the po-faced idiot I became or how much of a joy this record was to re-discover."
5.99   Used & New from: 0.37
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (222 customer reviews)

Pocket Full Of Kryptonite
4.  Pocket Full Of Kryptonite by Spin Doctors
The list author says:
  "Excellent Cod-Jazz noodlings, a world wide smash hit and then?"
3.85   Used & New from: 0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

'change Everything'
5.  'change Everything' by Del Amitri
The list author says:
  "Apparently the preserve of music hating professional footballers. Rubbish. Justin Currie is possibly this country's most undervalued songwriter."
7.96   Used & New from: 0.19
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Liege And Lief
6.  Liege And Lief by Fairport Convention
The list author says:
  "THE folk-rock album. If they were American they'd be as lauded as The Band are. Simply timeless."
4.99   Used & New from: 2.18
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (57 customer reviews)

Carpenters Gold: Greatest Hits
7.  Carpenters Gold: Greatest Hits by Carpenters
The list author says:
  "A 'Best of' cop out by myself? Perhaps, but has pop music ever been so tragically beautiful?"
12.99   Used & New from: 0.72
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (83 customer reviews)

Sweet Baby James
8.  Sweet Baby James by James Taylor
The list author says:
  "Neil Young lite. But song writing of the highest quality and the voice..."
5.97   Used & New from: 2.41
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

Tapestry
9.  Tapestry by Carole King
The list author says:
  "If you don't like this record then I don't think you should be allowed to own a stereo."
5.47   Used & New from: 2.24
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (245 customer reviews)

Tea for the Tillerman
10.  Tea for the Tillerman by Yusuf/Cat Stevens
The list author says:
  "Overshadowed (fairly) on the Island roster by Nick Drake and Richard Thompson but Steven's should be remembered for more than his misquoted judgement on the Rushdie affair. This is a wonderful record."
5.40   Used & New from: 1.73
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)
