My fav George album's are 33 & 3rd, George Harrison, Cloud 9 & Brainwashed.
I love the songs on All Things Must Pass but not the overall echo sound on it &
the Apple Jam really lets it down for me.
I loved Brainwashed from the 1st listen & it was a very important album in a period
in my life when it came out.
Electronic Music is quite a awful album, has anyone mentioned this?  :-/

heheheh why? everyone's entitled to their own taste, right? just because a majority of people think it is great, is it strange someone else is thinking a different way? a wise man once said: don't follow leaders. and: think for yourself.

I have only 3 albums of George - C9, ATMP & Brainwashed. 3 masterpieces.
According to All Music Guide his worst album is "Gone Troppo". It received 1 of 5 stars! (afraid4). Is really that bad?

It's not a great record, but I suspect much of the critical disdain for it comes from the fact that George used a lot of synthesizers on some of the tracks. Synths were popular in the early eighties, but "rock" critics often loathed them. I think "That's The Way It Goes" is a good song, and "Gone Troppo" is an okay novelty song that after all came from the guy who used to sing "Three Cool Cats" with The Beatles. The album also has "Circles," a song George first demo'd for The Beatles in 1968. I used to play this with Pete Townsend's All The Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes, which came out at about the same time. :)

listen to the mystical one, it's very beautiful,   dream away was from the movie, time bandits, it's actually preety good too.
with each listen, it grows on you, actually it's one of my favorites, but I love them all.
It is the least favorite of George fans, but it's far from being bad.

Thanks for explaining that, Geoff. I was mystified why this album got such lousy reviews when it is so much fun!

"That's The Way It Goes" gets you in the mood for a holiday, and "I Really Love You" gets you in the mood for silly. Now we can relax on our little traveling ship as we pass "Greece" and find we've "Gone Troppo", which is so much fun that George has to give a shout of glee at the end of it, which never fails to crack me up.

Frankly, I think the album holds together very well and I enjoy playing it more than, say, Dark Horse or Extra Texture. I also enjoy "Circles" and "Mystical One". His playful "Dream Away" should have been released to support the highly successful Time Bandits. If George had done so, I'm sure the single would have charted high. Somebody was asleep on the marketing switch over that one.

Notice also that they gave Electronic Sound 4 stars. Critics have their own way of viewing the world.

Being a critic is like being a weather forecaster: nobody even notices when you're absurdly wrong; it's expected. ;)

Of the albums I've heard, "Living In The Material World" is the worst.  It bores me to tears.  

Not that "33 & 1/3" or "Extra Texture" are masterpieces; except for George's voice they sound pretty much like everything else that came out in the mid/late 70's.  But while they're not unique, they don't put me to sleep the way "Material World" does.

And I've never liked "Got My Mind Set On You"; ugh.  I get queasy just thinking about it.
