Serious - poetic, musical, not throwaway

"Dylan's most personal and best. Given how many 'breakup songs had already been written, it takes genius to find so many new angles. His singing is more palatable then usual as well"

"Anybody who describes this as 'easy' should really listen. Sinatra's unique interpretation make any cliche's fall away to leave real soothing pain. Nelson Riddles arrangements are awesome at times"

"I don't believe in an interventionist God is a classic opening line. Love, God, love and death. Cave should rank alongside Dylan, Cohen and Mitchell"

"Poetry as good as Dylan, but not so self-promoting, and a more original melodocist. A Case of you the standout"

"Seedy, sexy, sixties but true poetry. You can listen to this time and time again and still get something new out of it"

"McCartney's album. How could he ever be seen as naff after For No One and Eleanor Rigby. I blame Linda - she made him too happy. Could have done with a big break-up c1975 to stimulate the emotions"

"Obviously for the title track and Boxer, but the sophistication in the rhythms is already there, and there's probably more variation than most Simon albums"

"Cosmic. You know the hits, the social impact, and there's the songs as well. Lady Stardust is probably my favout Bowie 'tune', and Mick Ronson's chords on the title track are , errm, cosmic"

"The progression from rock'n'roll to rock and so much more. Keith the all-time riffmaster. Jagger was always underrated as a lyricist. Think Under My Thumb, Paint it Black, Sympathy, Wild Horses . ."
