Albums You've Listened To Today


Recommended Posts

U2 - Zooropa (1993) is a brilliant and disruptive album for U2. Back in 93, Zooropa subverted every expectation that we had. The worlds most serious rock band released an album full of advertising parodies, Prince imitations, girl group tributes, Johnny Cash taking over on vocals and even a straightforward love song. The results are not always fully satisfying, but if you keep in mind that U2 were recording Zooropa in the middle of their ambitious ZooTV Tour you get a sense that U2 are indulging their unexpected side of being one of the worlds most celebrated musical acts.

This Spin article about Zooropa is well worth your time. http://www.spin.com/2013/07/u2-zooropa-20th-anniversary-1993/

Ray Charles - The Genius Of Ray Charles (1959)

1959 was a watershed year of definitive jazz, soul and r&b albums and The Genius Of Ray Charles fits right into that list nicely. The first side is up-tempo big band standards while side two focuses more on introspective material. The album closer Come Rain Or Come Shine would rank among Ray's finest cover songs he's ever recorded.

An afternoon with Bobby seems to be a frequent occurrence for you Potstan. Big Dylan fan you are.

No one comes even remotely close to Dylan in my book. Not even Bruce. I mean, I can go weeks (hell, even months) without listening to Bruce (actually, I haven't listened to Bruce in more than two months now), but Dylan is why I started to play guitar, Blood On The Tracks is my all time favorite album, no one has written as many true masterpieces as Dylan... The guy's a genius!

Agreed. But I listen to hard rock and Bruce much more than Bob as I prefer the Plugged In sound.

Black Flag - Damaged (1981)

Black Flag's skinhead look and hardcore sound signaled a new chapter in punk and rock in general. Henry Rollins's venom-dripping vocals lead the way for fast paced rockers like Rise Above, Six Pack and of course Life Of Pain.
