    if I like it, it's not a guilty pleasure
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Many of you would consider this a guilty pleasure.
    However, the first album that turned me on to Gentle Giant from my classic rock upbringing....

    Nothing guilty about that! I think Side 2 is fairly pedestrian, but Side 1 is brilliant from start to finish.

    Like someone else said, you shouldn't feel guilty about liking something - perhaps the thread title should be "what album do you like that other members would probably turn up their noses at?". In which case, mine is probably ABBA - The Album.

    Not really an album, because I've so far only heard two songs by these guys I really like (out of at least four or five), but there is this (and I'm promise this is kind of humiliating that I like this):




    Apart from that, i suppose there's Pac Man Fever, I kinda still like that album (yes, I have an LP copy around here some place, a promo copy I fished out of the 2 dollar bin at Wax Stax about a gazillion years ago)

    Yes - "Heaven & Earth"

    Exactly! I don't feel ashamed or guilty about any of the music I listen to. I've never liked or accepted the term "guilty pleasure"

    I like many things that are guilty pleasures but I'd be embarrassed to share it publicly, same applies with music!

    I have no guilty pleasures, but... I don't know of anyone else who likes this album, but I don't care.

    Metallica: St. Anger

    You'd be afraid/ashamed to admit in public that you liked Madonna or Michael Jackson (or something not trumy embarrassing)?

    OK, being an atheist, I'm fairly free of the judeo-christian concept of guilt and shame (although I suppose that I'm not totally unexposed to it or "guilty" of it either). Heah sure, as a teen, I also hid that I actually liked a couple of Bee Gees disco-era songs, for fear to appear gay to the football team-mates, but I grew out of that dumb peer pressure

    As much as I loathe country music (and I do!!! It's probably one of the things about Unitedstatian culture - I'll accept "Americana" term in this case - that I dislike strongly), I still wouldn't call this a GP if I liked it...
