Patti Smith Easter
A criminally underrated album. You've got the wild, primal poetess of 'Babelogue/Rock n Roll Nigger', the glorious, spectral artiste of 'Easter', the chart-smashing ode to spirituality and sex of 'Because the Night'. If "Horses" is the better album for its consistency and revolutionary impact, "Easter" is more noteworthy for its unexpected and wildly successful turns.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds From Her To Eternity
A slapdash, unfinished sketch of an album in which Cave works his way from the Birthday Party's abhorrent legacy. A claustrophobic conceptual thread is evident in 'Avalanche', 'Cabin Fever!' and the primal ode to voyeurism and sexual obsession 'From Her to Eternity', the Bad Seeds' first great song.

Fleetwood Mac Rumours
The band hated each other so much that every instrument had to be recorded with only its player in the studio. Somehow, it not only came together in production but counts as one of the most superb sounding records of its time. Best songs: 'Dreams', 'Go Your Own Way', 'Songbird', 'The Chain', 'Oh Daddy'.

Bruce Springsteen The Ghost of Tom Joad
There's no way to listen to the dark, acoustically arranged "Tom Joad' without comparing it to its far-superior 1982 predecessor "Nebraska". The stories are grim and its distinctive nature appealing but the melodies are far weaker.

The Saints Eternally Yours
The Saints' sophomore album distinguishes itself from their eponymous debut with the subtle employment of brass and Bailey's mean-spirited, pithy tone. With morale audibly splintering in the Saints' camp, it's hard to believe that they not only recorded another album but made it their best one.

Bob Dylan Love and Theft
It's called "Love and Theft" because during recording Dylan loved to steal from early bluesmen.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds Push The Sky Away
A post-modern album that reinvents the Bad Seeds' early take on menace and confirms Ellis' position as their most dynamic player. Cave's oddest, most intellectual album and - weird lyrical fixation with mermaids aside - one of his best.
