Okay, we all have the threads where we post our favorites, now for something different: What's in your collection that you find yourself never listening to anymore, if ever?

Here's a few of mine:

Dust (Peter Murphy) - this disc is aptly named, as it does indeed have a layer of dust on it. I love Murphy's solo work- each disc is unlike the others in my collection, but I fear "Dust" is a bit too far removed from anything he's done. Picture your favorite death metal band doing a country-western album, and you'll get the idea. This CD's almost ten years old, and it's only been played three times.

Mind Chaos (Hockey) - I bought this because of one song, taking a chance that I'd like the rest. Boy, was I wrong! I couldn't connect to any of the other songs on the disc on any level.

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (John Williams) - I had forgotten that songs that appear in the movie's trailer do NOT appear in the actual movie. This soundtrack is a drag to experience, much like the movie it comes from.

The Shadow (Jerry Goldsmith) - I actually like this soundtrack, except that the Taylor Dane songs (so anachronistic in the 1930's setting) always left me lunging for the "skip" button whenever I listened to it. This was easy to do when I lived alone in my Spartan apartment- now I have to vault over my old lady's precious furniture, and I'm gettin' too old for that shit.

Odditorium (The Dandy Warhols) - This disc'd be great of the Warhols could stay off the drugs long enough to finish a song. It seems like every song is about eight minutes long. That's not bad, except each song is only about three minutes, at which point the song kinda devolves into a random mess of instruments, as if the practice sessions were grafted onto the end of each song.

Sammy Hagar (Best of) - I bought this because there really IS only one way to rock. Too bad I found the rest of the disc totally forgettable.

So my closing statement is, anyone want to buy a few CDs, slightly used? Wink

Some quick examples from my collection:

Santana "Abraxas" - bleh
Rainbow "Rising"
George Thorogood and The Destroyers "Live"
Robert Plant "Pictures at Eleven"

I don't know if any of these found its way inside the cd player in the last ten years or so.
This is an interesting question you posed, I'll come back here later.
