Top 5 Albums from ’66
When I see the number 66, I:
a) begin advising people (through song) to get their kicks on a major US interstate
b) think of Le Magnifique, Mario Lemieux, whose name fittingly translates to “the best”
c) realize we’ve reached the top year from my Top 5 duplicate digit years series.
Which means we’ve also arrived at my most controversial list in a while: attempting to highlight a mere 5 records from a, to borrow the Tori Amos song name, Pretty Good Year.
Hold all complaints/list of unforgivable omissions to the end.
For your convenience, I’ve prepared a form letter below to streamline the grievance process!
5. Simon & Garfunkel, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Delicious herbs, an equally appealing album.
4. The Kinks, Face to Face
The first of a quartet of Kinks records to grace the 1001 list.
3. Bob Dylan, Blonde on Blonde
Not his finest but that’s more of a relative criticism when compared to its 1965 predecessors.
2. The Beatles, Revolver
Tomorrow Never Knows was 30 years ahead of its time.
1. The Beach Boys, Pet Sounds
Will probably be review #996 or so/1001.
