Most albums by Gentle Giant. They just get on my nerves.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

None. If I don't like an album it just seems unlikable to me.

Precisely 
Classical music isn't dead, it's more alive than it's ever been. It's just not on MTV.

Yeah me too. I don't get the point here. I happen to not like DSOTM. So what.

I have never managed to get into King Crimson. 
People keep telling me how good In the Court of the Crimson King is but I've never got it.
Although I did hear the title track on Radio 2 in the middle of the night recently and I did enjoy it.
So I will give the album that one more go sometime.

I really can't think why I'd be ashamed to not like something.

So Yes. Anything by.

There are some groups that I feel I should like, but I don't like them at all. I do not feel ashamed for not liking them. So, this includes albums by Van Der Graaf, Can, Gentle Giant's studio albums, later King Crimson, Genesis without Gabriel, and others I have forgotten. On the other hand, I like lots of albums regularly attacked on the progressive rock forums.

Can't say I've ever been ashamed at not liking an album, although there are some that I don't really understand the appeal of - The Ladder by Yes is one of them; if I wanted to hear a band try to sound like 70's Yes, I'd listen to Starcastle! At least they have the decency to do a whole album of it, rather than two tracks and a bunch of filler in between.

Yep...

Since I have been on here my musical Tastes have really opened out so much so it baffles some people. Most albums  tend to grow on me over a period of time.
 
However there was one album that made me feel so depressed and suicidal. Eventually the album was jettisoned for my own sanity. The album was Kaipa's Key holder.

I can't say I've ever felt any sort of shame over my musical preferences, but it seems that the spirit of this thread is a bit closer to "prog albums that you think you should like given your tastes, but don't". So as far as those go, here are a few:

Yes - Going For The One (I love Yes, but I find this to be guilty of the "Yes is cold and sterile" trope)
Museo Rosenbach - Zarathustra (RPI is usually my jam, but I don't find this one particularly engaging)
Le Orme - Uomo Di Pezza (Same deal)
Sloche - Stadaconé (I adore Quebecois music, jazz fusion, and Quebec jazz fusion, but neither Sloche album really does it for me)

when i was a kid a doller was worth ten dollers - now a doller couldnt even buy you fifty cents
