The Tuesday Muse – Classic Albums.


I am currently working my way through the vast expanse (seriously, it’s bloody huge) of ‘classic’ albums that exist but I’ve never actually heard. i started with Radiohead’s ‘Pablo Honey’, Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ and Primal Scream’s ‘Screamadelica’, which all proved to be pretty damn good really, an awful lot better than I was expecting. Then I delved onto albums I’d never heard as albums (only individual songs), including Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ (I can safely say every song is a hit here) and David Bowie’s ‘Ziggy Stardust’ (obviously, the same can be said for this album). Moving onto Talking Heads’ ‘Talking Heads ’77’, I wasn’t as impressed as some of the other albums, but it’s still pretty good really. Perfectly listenable to, but not really amazing, and David Byrne’s voice kind of grates after 11 songs. Sorry Byrne, it’s true.

Anyway! The point of this blog was that it got me thinking of the classic albums of the first decade of the ‘naughties’. And yes I understand it’s not always possible to see what will be deemed classic and widely influential now, but what can we site as fantastic and those that will stand the test of time now? I can see very few, but then I don’t have the power of retrospect and all that. Anyone got any ideas? And don’t you dare say all music from this generation is drivel, because it’s not. There’s just a lot of drivel to sift and wade through before you get to the good stuff.
