Top 5 Third Albums
Third time’s the charm!
For these artists, it really was.
My top 5:
5. Public Enemy – Fear of a Black Planet
My first non-Vanilla Ice/MC Hammer rap album will always have a special place. Some prefer It takes a Nation of Millions… but I’d say this one is the career peak.
4. The Clash – London Calling
A stellar double LP, so varied, so very good.
3.Metallica – Master of Puppets
Perhaps the only record all Metallica fans can agree upon.
2. Nick Drake – Pink Moon
It would also tragically be his last. It remains an exemplar on how to create a full sound with only vocals and an acoustic guitar.
1. Radiohead – OK Computer
It’s not as if its predecessor, The Bends, was merely so-so! I anticipate this being album review #1000/1001 in a few years.
And at 300/1001 albums complete, it feels like an appropriate place to take a break.
I’ll be back in a few weeks with a new daughter, maybe running on less sleep, but ready to tackle the remaining 701 records.
The comments, as always, have been much appreciated & I’m looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs when I return.
See you soon!
