Im sure we must have done this before – but after reading the “Definitive masterpieces” thread, I feel I need to play “Humiliation” with you lot. As you probably know Humiliation is a game invented by David Lodge and described in his novel Changing Places, in which a player (English Lit academics in the novel) names a book they haven’t read and gets a point for everyone in the group who has read it – the purpose is to admit to not reading a classic that one would assume that everyone (in academic English Lit circles at any rate) has read. So as proud members of a music cognoscenti of sorts, I can assume with confidence that everyone here has heard Sgt Pepper, Who’s Next etc. My nomination though is – “Close to the Edge”. A definitive prog classic according to some here. Not only have I never heard it – I cant name a single track on it. I have heard Fragile several times, but cant stand Jon Anderson’s voice so never bothered with anything else. How about you? Surely somebody has not got around to Bryter Layter or Sticky Fingers or Automatic for the People.
