Neil Young After the Gold Rush
Harmless and unobtrusive, "After the Gold Rush" features all the pieces that would later make "Harvest" floating past each other just out of reach.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus
This or 'No More Shall We Part'? For variety, it's undoubtedly ABLO: the Bad Seeds attempt and succeed at everything from gospel rockers to strummy folk to medieval ballads to grunge and swirling string 'n piano epics. This double album brings together, transcends and perfects everything Cave has attempted throughout his career.

Public Enemy It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us
First half: Don't believe the hype.
Second half: Oh you better believe it.

Bob Dylan The Bootleg Series Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs
Most consistent of Dylan's bootlegs. Although it doesn't offer many great new songs (''Cross the Green Mountain' and 'Most of the Time') it does show Dylan's tapering and mastering of the blues over his twenty year late career hot streak.

The Band The Band
I can understand why The Band were important at the time of release... hearing 'The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down' at a time when America was being hurled headlong into a future that never eventuated must have been a decent reality check. But why they've endured? Well, they can thank Bob Dylan for that.

The Band Music from Big Pink
Indisputably good musicians, The Band are too homely to find the darkness in 'Tears of Rage' and 'The Long Black Veil'. Whilst this is a good album, it's hard to identify what distinguishes The Band from any other roots act, past or future.
