That song alone basically earns the album The Tight Hold Of The Sun On Its Wandering Children, The Comets - Prick Decay - Escape To The Deposi spot on this list.
Fishbone: Truth and Soul Call it funk metal or ska punk, but four months after Living Colour reached radio ubiquity with their blend of hard-rock and funk, another band of black musicians fused several genres into their sophomore and best album, Truth and Soul. There was everything from jazz to polka to funk-backed songs about purple toupees, friendships with cows beneath the sea and imaginary shoehorns with teeth. Every melody was immediate and undeniable. Great as this album is, it should have aged poorly by now.
He re-created it as the centerpiece and title track of this collaborative album with fellow countrymen The Chieftains. Quite the opposite of Van Morrisonthough, they were taking their Celtic roots and expanding them outward. After debuting at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, she ended up signing a record deal with Mercury and put out her first genre-hopping album. If you ever wished Concerto In A Major, RV 353 - Antonio Vivaldi / Monica Huggett, London Vivaldi Orchestra* - Violin C were creepier and more unhinged, this is the album for you.
Outside of hardcore pioneers Bad Brains, there were few black rock musicians having any kind of success when Vivid was released, but it peaked at No. Complain all you want about the honking vocals or trumpet intrusions from Einar Orn, the Flavor Flav of The Sugarcubes, but this album would be far less satisfying without them.
Modern Rock list. Maybe their songs are too stately, their lyrics too literary, to attract a large audience? Whatever the case, 16 Lovers Lane wrapped up the first phase of The Go-Betweens with 10 more beautiful songs that are often tender and sad but never cynical or maudlin. That, more or less, is how you arrive at what is probably the greatest supergroup in history.
Traveling Wilburys Vol. The band never stopped recording, with something like two dozen studio albums to their name, but Starfish was when their star shone the brightest. Perfect, then, that Cave himself famously disliked the album, which was recorded in West Berlin at a very difficult time in his life. But in the waning days of the Reagan presidency, there were plenty of people hungry for the kind of ruminative, heart-on-the-sleeve expressions of underrepresented voices striving for equality and understanding.
Heard today, the album has lost none of its power and luster. The love songs scattered throughout ache with longing and lust. This music was challengingbut endlessly rewarding. Call it post-rock, call it psych-jazz, call it experimental mumbo-jumbo. Mark Hollis sings enough just to barely sing, quivering out artful melodic squiggles with his radiant chest-cold tone, slinging spiritual poetry drenched in fog. Beneath is a cavern of sonic heaven—double-bass moans, flickers of muted trumpet, sizzling cymbals, violent clashes of electric guitar.
Spirit of Eden slithers through six indefinable songs, if you can even call them songs. Talk Talk were simply playing music in a different universe than their peers. As it turned out, they only had one more album in them.
The Pixies: Surfer Rosa On Surfer Rosaproducer Steve Albini captured a blend of exuberant rock and noisy pop that was true to everything The Pixies were when they were at their best. The Pixies did dark and twisted like no one else.
It was, in many ways, the original DIY album. Oh, I forgot, we also gave five bucks to the janitor for him to go away and be quiet for an extra half hour until we finished the recording, so add that to the tally as well. Share Tweet Submit Pin.
