5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply the Greatest Album of all-time., 28 Oct. 1999
This review is from: Blonde on Blonde (Audio CD)
Out of all the great records released in the 1960's it is this one that to me stands alone ahead of the field, the feeling that i get when i listen to this album is a feeling i get with no other record, only 'Highway 61 revisited' comes close. Dylan himself said that the sound of Blonde on Blonde was the closest he ever got to the sound he had in his head, explanation enough for the other worldly quality of this music. The 14 songs on this album are faultless my favourites being the seductive melodies of "I Want You" and "Just like a Women" The joyus jamming of "Rainy Day Women" and "Most Likely You Go Your Way" The Chicago blues feel of Leopard-Skin-Pillow-Box Hat (Dylan would never be this care-free again), "Stuck Inside of Mobile" has an irresistable chorus and "Visions of Johanna" and "Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands" have an unearthly beauty which Dylan sings wonderfully. I cannot recommend this album highly enough it is the work of a true genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars A contempoary album that can safely be labeled a classic., 27 Oct. 1999
This review is from: The La's (Audio CD)
The La's were a phenomanan, one album of pure pop melodies that positively overdosed on 60's heavyweights such as the Beatles and less obviously the Byrds and Love. Lee Mavers the bands leader was to his own downfall a perfectionist (if it was up to him the record may have never been released). Thankfully it was. The albums material is strong from start to finish every song is a potential standout track, a personal favourite for me being the folk?pop of freedom song. This album will quite rightly be considered by many to be a true classic an album to rank up there with any record released in the last ten years the very fact that the La's only released the one album only adds to their myth a lesson that maybe the Stone Roses could have learned!
