    ESSENTIAL ALBUMS IN NEED OF RECOGNITION

    I don't know if there has been a thread on this, But what are the two great albums that you feel are sorely in need of some shout outs!
    Here's my two:
    1. Hawk - Doug Marks of Metal Method. I thought this should have been a HUGE SUCCESS- Some great heavy guitars with some great vocals.
    2.Aldo Nova (Blood on the Bricks) The more I listen to this the more I like it.
    I believe Aldo Nova and Bon Jovi colaborated on the song writing on this. Some great pop/rock "Touch of Madness" and "Me and Ronnie "(Veronica's Song).
    How's about it my fellow Linker's?

    First off, any U2 fan that's written off POP needs to go back and give it another listen or three. Take it song by song if you have to, but there's some great stuff on there like "Please", "Gone", "If God Will Send His Angels", "MOFO", "Staring At The Sun", "Last Night On Earth". Really, the only place where it really bogs down for me is "The Playboy Mansion" and "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" - "Velvet..." would be a lot better if Bono didn't mumble through the vocals. But overall, it's a good album - not Achtung Baby or The Joshua Tree, but geez, how many of those can one group have!

    Second, I'm going to offer up Street Survivors by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The album is a quality effort from stem-to-stern - I think the addition of Steve Gaines really invigorated the band and they seemed poised to take off in a good direction. Tragically, we know they didn't get very far...

    it didn't have the success of its predecessor, but there was so much that was right with that album: diversity (as always with this group), great melodies, and a concept album to boot!

    We're supposed to pick just two, right?
    In that case:

    Aerosmith--Live Bootleg A great, grungy, awful-sounding album from back when the toxic twins were still toxic.

    The Dixie Dregs--Free Fall If you've never heard the Dregs, you've got to give them a try just once.

    As is to be expected, our resident dunderhead Kimmie misses the point of the thread entirely.

    Neil Young-"Living With War". Released last year, this album pretty much tanked and was derided for the political jingoism of the tune "Let's Impeach The President".

    In fact, it featured some of the sharpest political commentary of Young's long career, and some of his sharpest melodies. A welcome return to the "Crazy Horse" sound, made more remarkable by the addition of a one hundred voice choir.

    Loretta Lynn-"Van Leer Rose". From a few years back, this was the first album to feature a track listing of songs composed by Lynn herself in her entire career. Stark, spine tingling and downright heartbreaking country music, produced with respect and sympathy by Jack White, a fellow one normally would not associate such traits with.

    Great pick.

    My two would be:

    Shangri-La Dee Da by STP. Not that people don't like this album, but I feel it should get more respect than it does. The Deleo's and Scott Weiland were at the top of their game as a band, and a song writers most importantly. This album has all the essentials a music fan needs. Straight ahead rockers, guitar solo's, a couple ballads, a bit of punk, etc. Great album.

    90125 by Yes. Again, an album that a lot of people dig, but certainly one that's been forgotten over time. I still remember being drawn in by the video for "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" as a kid. It wasn't till I matured that I was able to really appreciate the album fully. Great musicianship, which is always present on a Yes album. And just flat out good tunes. Our Song, It Can Happen, Hold On, Our Song and the lead single are just great fucking songs. People just don't make albums like these anymore.

    Um, I'm sorry, but did I ask you for ANY input?

    Don't care anyway, I just a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda girl.

    I happen to think there are more than 2 albums that deserve recognition, thank you.

    Loretta Lynn? Um, well, to each his own I suppose.

    Yup, Loretta Lynn. You know, a real woman. No wonder you can not relate, let alone understand for that matter.

    Here's another:
    Casey Chambers-"The Captain". Smart, solid country western, with none of the "pop-radio" horseshit gimmicks that pass for that genre today. Soulful, modern "Appalachian high-lonesome" style singing and balladry, as is to be expected as written and performed by a chick from...Australia ?

    alright, now that I have a moment, if I may expand-0

    Recovering the satellites starts with a great organ intro into "catapult," which to me is just a great album opener. And although the record kind of fades towards the end, the first 8 or 9 tracks are as good as rock/pop that's been released during that time or since. It's meloncholy (sp) in places without being too dark, and has a good balance of rock and slower tunes throughout.

    I always liked Adam Duritz lyrics, even though he gets hung up a bit too much on recurring themes sometimes (angels and rain being the most obvious)

    Key tracks-
    Catapult
    Angels of the Silences
    Goodnight Elizabeth (one of my favorite lines in this tune- "we can all be cowboys, some of us are clowns...)
    Have you Seen Me Lately

    Matthew Sweet- Girlfirend
    Good Catchy guitar based pop. Maybe a bit too sappy for some, but I still pull it out and listen to often. There's some good breakup/sad songs on this one.(Thought I knew you, You Don't Love Me).

    For those that aren't familiar with Matthew Sweet, this was kind of his break out record in '91. After several more albums, he went on to be a major contributing member to "Ming Tea" (it's true)

    Don't drink the Jim Jones punch. They're called theToxic Twins for a reason...

    Hmm....is it possible that a real man appreciates & respects a real woman that speaks her own mind and doesn't cower behind him?
