Best of 1970

I'm on vacation from work, which means I should finally have time to pound out some lists. 1970 was more or less a refinement of what 1969 had to offer, which means there was a high saturation of Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple wannabes, some great, some terrible. A lot of musicians started pushing the 'hard' aspect of 'hard rock,' and through that we were gifted the definitive birth of metal in Black Sabbath's first two albums. A lot of the country influence in the late-sixties has been again replaced by singer-songwriters and bedroom folk music, and in general we lost a lot of the variety that made the late-sixties so wonderful. All-in-all, it was a great year for rock and folk, but not for much else. The year 1970 etches a bold line between decades. Overall year rating: 4/5
