Why are people calling Raw Power and the Stooges S/T Iggy albums? 

Raw Power is Iggy and The Stooges and the two before that is arguably the greatest rock band to come out of America..The Stooges. (and no Iggy and the Stooges and The Stooges are not the same. Once Ron is on Bass instead of guitar, it's a completely different band.)

Lust For Life and The Idiot are Iggy Pop albums. 

 

If they are really your favorite albums, maybe learn about what you apparently love so much.

It's cool that you mention Air, I had never heard of them until I was watching MTVC and a song called Sexy Boy came on.  I really liked it, the melody was hypnotizing.

mostly I listen to music out of habit, and in my car. When I'm driving, there HAS to be music playing, it's mandatory. It's mostly "exile on main street"; that one can pretty much play on rotation, it's almost background music.

I'm not sure I like any album "as such" though. I'm not really sure what it means. Every album that I like, there are many songs that I dont like. And even the songs that I do like, I'm just sick and tired of them by overplaying.

Most of these classic songs, that everyone puts on their top 10 lists, I'm so fucking tired of them to the point of hating them. Still, there are bits and pieces in these songs that stay great. bohemian rhapsody starts nice, with the little piano intro, but the opera section is annoying as fuck. so do I like the song? Yes and no. I definately like the piano section.

When it comes to music, I'm increasingly of the opinion that I don't like "albums", but rather "performances". Even within songs, it could be isolated parts I come back to. Like the solo of "sad sad sad" by the stones. I'm not much fan of the vocals, but the solo is epic. So does that make me like the song, or the solo? If even I don't like whole songs note for note, imagine how much harder it is for me to like whole albums front to back. In that sense, I dont like any album. I'm sick and tired of "welcome to the jungle", but I like the appetite album or so I keep telling myself. But really, when it comes to appetite, I'm mostly a fan of the rhythm section and the rhythm guitar and some slash riffs. And the fun lyric here and there. I don't like "everything" about it.

So there are musical moments on various albums, that I like. They feature on albums that I have to play as a means to get to my favorite moments. "rocks" by aerosmith is another one of these albums. When I'm listening to that one, I'm not enjoying it with undivided excitement. There are annoying moments on it, but rats in the cellar comes on and then I remember why I like it so much.

with elvis, with his earlier albums, these are "mood setters". Most of the time I'm not even fully aware of what is playing, but I'm enjoying the ride as background music, and it makes me feel upbeat.

Garth was ousted by Portishead, good.😄 Now if you had replaced Elvis that would've been sacrilege.
