Lost gems, minor classics and stuff you missed: eclectic

JazzUK777 "James"
 
Violet Burning
Violet Burning
"Dense turbulent alt-rock (see my review!)...Ambient grunge maybe?"
Stoned
Stoned
"Extra credits if you can get the UK version (part1) that has less songs but one exclusive. Classic soul meets psychedelia."
Lewis Taylor
Lewis Taylor
"Where I discovered Lewis, on the stunning "Lucky" - imagine Curtis Mayfield or Marvin Gaye being remixed by Portishead after they had taken some very dubious chemicals"
Goes Around Comes Around
Goes Around Comes Around
"Great alt-rock. Touches of both OK Computer and Bends-era radiohead, the manics, the foos plus their own idiosyncracies. Alcatraz and Pusherman are epic. Again UK and US versions with different tracks"
Feather & Stone
Feather & Stone
"A touch of Buckley. Not every track is great...but those that are - wow! Also seek out his breathless acoustic "Whole of The Moon" cover"
Still Life
Still Life
"Piano driven beauty all the way through. Two versions with slightly different mix of one of the songs. A world away from the demo feel of his debut"
Great War Of Words
Great War Of Words
"Acoustic sometimes esoteric instrumentation, typically sparse yet beautiful and warmer production by Talk Talk collaborator. Vocals-Jeff Buckley meets Aaron Neville. Brian never bettered this debut."
Spirit Of Eden
Spirit Of Eden
"Kid A but 80s and acoustic? Those in the know shout about this album, but I think there are many still ignorant of its timeless quality. I suspect many inc.Four Tet, Elbow, & Thom have drawn from here"
Storm Hymnal: Gems From The Vault
Storm Hymnal: Gems From The Vault
"A greatest hits chosen purely because I coudn't decide which album to highlight! Touches of Dylan, Waterboys, grunge, folk, burlesque and pure originality"
Red Letter Days
Red Letter Days
""They say there isn't any such thing as bad luck/yeah well once i shot an arrow in the sky and it stuck" ...Bob Dylan's son and lyrical quality appears genetic!"
Into the Woods
Into the Woods
"U2 with less fans and a little more meat to their lyrics...not to mention a great lost rock vocalist"
Rounds
Rounds
"Folk instrumentation and passages of near silent delicacy collide with buzzing samples and skittering loops not to mention the odd groove. Unique and beautiful"
Never, Never, Land
Never, Never, Land
"Available in a plethora of different editions/track listings! Epic dance music - imagine Pink Floyd making Dark Side of The Moon for the 21stC. Eye popping Eye for An Eye video."
Robbie Robertson
Robbie Robertson
"Packed with guest stars (incl.U2 on two tracks) and full of good atmospheric rock - typical Daniel Lanois production"
