True,Ian Brown wasnt a great singer.
Still,this is one incredible album and the talent of the remaining members cant be denied.
From the hipnotic "I wanna be adored" to the dreamy "Waterfall" to the danceble "I am the resurrection" this album shines the whole way.
Sounding both fresh and influenced by the 60s,the fact that the Roses captured a whole era continues to amaze.

The true core of Britpop.While compilations from Blurs rivals of the 90s are often redudant(Oasis) or inconsistent(Pulp),Damon Albarn and cia career always had the tools to sound fresh.
And this album proves it.Dealing with their selection of best songs (not singles) and without ignoring any period of the band,the compilation is just stellar.And Am I the only one who still gets excited after the initial moments of Popscene?

The Smiths Meat Is Murder
Between their raw debut and their masterpiece "The Queen is Dead", "Meat is Murder" seems more like a transition record.Quite experimental on some songs(Barbarism Begins At Home is kind of funky) and over indulgent in others(the title track is probably their weirdest song and sadly,one of their worst), the album feels just like a collection of songs.
Still, songs like How Soon is Now,Well I Wonder and I Want The One I Cant Have can trully be considered Smiths classics and help the album a lot.
If you are new to The Smiths,go elsewhere(The Queen is Dead).If you like the other albums too,then you will enjoy Meat Is Murder.

U2 The Unforgettable Fire

2.5 average
Aerosmith Toys in the Attic
Walk this way trully deserves all the credits it gets.But then what?
The rest is just mediocre.Only self titled and Sweet Emotion arent that bad,but still.The rest is either generic or unispired.
After loads of recommendations that this was a classic album,it was pretty dissapointing.
Oasis Be Here Now

2.0 poor
Poison Look What The Cat Dragged In
