musical taste

Chart.
favorite bands
David Bowie Let's Dance
Bowie sets the joint on fire with the first 3 tracks and after that is content to just let 5 more roll off the conveyor belt. He mastered pop with "Ziggy Stardust" anyway.

Took this from a 1.1 to a 1.2 Meghan Trainor I expect a thank you letter

Led Zeppelin Celebration Day
With a set list like this, Zepp could have killed it in their sleep. Unfortunately, it sounds like they tried.

Beastie Boys Licensed to Ill
Once they had ramped up the manic spirit and hit a rich vein of samples - i.e., wider than Sabbath & Zeppelin - the Beastie Boys became world beaters. Their debut is a base in every sense of the word.

Jay-Z The Blueprint
Hey, I actually really like this one. I've always thought Jay-Z took his bullshit too seriously but there's enough panache - and more than enough killer hooks - for 'The Blueprint' to really work.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Murder Ballads
The rich, evocative narratives of 'Henry Lee' and 'Where The Wild Roses Grow' and the cackling psycho freak outs 'The Curse of Millhaven' and 'O'Malley's Bar' are the successful executions of Cave's explorations into the dynamics, moralities and neuroses of murder. Then you've got inaudible mumbling and repetitive storylines over bummed-out backtracks. And then to close it there's 'Death is Not The End', which is the funniest of the lot whether it means to be or not. Seriously, Monty Python couldn't have thought of a better closer than Cave and his guest artists joining hands and singing the Goth equivalent of kumbaya.
