It is fascinating how one man's meat is another man's poison so to speak.
For me, "Extra Texture" is a dreary, deplorable album (apart from "You", devoid of any melody, anywhere) which almost makes its predecessor "Dark Horse" sound decent - and that takes some doing! Indeed, I've often felt that I only find "Living In The Material World" tolerable knowing how very much worse Harrison's output would become over the following two years.
To say that George positively turned a corner with "Thirty Three & 1/3" would be an understatement. Having plumbed the depths in '74/'75 it's like he finally came back up for air. Apart from being immeasurably more engaging and accessible, much of George's wry humour returned ("Crackerbox Palace", "This Song") and the preachy, saturnine lecturing had, thankfully, receded. "Beautiful Girl" can still make me tingle - as gorgeous as anything John or Paul produced in the 70s.
I'm glad that we can agree to disagree over these things, it would be so tedious if we all regarded everything the same way.
