Bruce Springsteen The Rising
A set of stirring anthems about living through the worst and hoping for the best set to compact, dense rock 'n roll. So pretty much the 9/11 concept album you would expect from Bruce Springsteen.

Billy Joel The Stranger
A cool, smart rock 'n roll album that knows when to knuckle down and when to throw out the flash and theatrics. Joel discusses the temporary nature of modern life from work to ambition to identity.

Amy Winehouse Back to Black
For all her sass, dark humour and sloppy, what-kind-of-fuckery-is-this schtick, "Back in Black" is the sound of Amy Winehouse realising life's joke was on her.

U2 Zooropa
Aimlessness, for better or worse, defines "Zooropa". Its introspective modernism sees its protagonists walk through life with metaphorical guns to their heads ('Stay', 'Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car', 'Dirty Day') or cast aside all certainty in 'The Wanderer' and the glorious title track, which quite literally declares, "I have no compass/I have no map/I have no reason, no reason to get back." On the other hand, the album's modest origins and rushed finish give us obviously unfinished pieces and over-parodic experiments.

Iggy Pop Lust For Life
Part garage chug-along, part campy Hammerstein cabaret and part whatever struck Iggy's (and Bowie's) fancy, "Lust for Life" is a mixed bag. Best songs: 'Lust for Life', 'Tonight' and 'Success'.

Talking Heads Stop Making Sense
You've heard the classics on radio but I would definitely recommend diving in for the version of 'Swamp'. As for the rest of the album, there are times when Talking Heads debased reassessments of modern life are truly so 'clever', so 'stop making sense', that they genuinely cannot pose a coherent question.
