Arcade Fire Funeral
When all of 'Funeral's ideas - delicate melodies bedded with tinny guitars and emotionally perfect depictions of all the moments of childhood that stand out as we become adults - come together, Arcade Fire can claim to making one of the most powerful albums of the last decades. It just fades late - you can't tell me 'Rebellion' doesn't sounds like 'Come on Barbie Let's Go Party.'

Bruce Springsteen Nebraska
Much darker and nastier than anything Springsteen had done prior... self-destruction instead of self-fulfilment, despair instead of hope, painful nostalgia instead of looking forward. "They declared me unfit to live/Said into that great void my soul be hurled/Then they ask why I did what I did/Sir I guess there's just a meanness in the world."

Bruce Springsteen Born to Run
'Inspiring' is a word that is almost a veiled criticism today, aligned with chick flicks and 14 year old talent show winners. But 'Born to Run' really is one of the most inspiring rock records ever.

Bob Dylan Shadows in the Night
Bob Dylan has been many adjectives to many people. But this album is a new one: unambitious.

Neil Young Harvest
I hate to be one of those guys that values an artist's darker, less mainstream work over their most commercially successful one... but 'Harvest' just feels unfocused at times.

David Bowie The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust...
'Ziggy's greatest strength is its ability to pull together issues such as androgyny, materialism, messiah complex, homosexuality, institutionalised inequality and mortality in a 3-4 minute pop song with great hooks. A breakthrough in pop's presentation but also in pop's power in concise song writing.
