    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    And here’s me thinking it’s a discussion forum? My bad. let’s all fawn over Rumours instead, much more healthy

    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    I don’t disagree, although his best is Blood on the Tracks, not even sure it’s on here? however the point I was making is I’m away for a while and have been making my way through the top 100. I’m currently on Highway 61 and will listen to James later followed by Astral Week(s) before settling...

    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    I didn’t see the thread. However it is a cracking thread, just cannot fathom how anyone could possibly vote for something so bland and meaningless as Rumours. I could write a thesis on the other 99, but they are down to personal choice, timing and sometimes, though not often, quality.

    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    Whilst agreeing with every single point you make, for me, that makes it purely a piece of commercial product with little musical endeavour except to make a sound that will accrue dollars an album in the top ten of the top 100 should have much more artistic merit than that just listening to...

    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    Having had time to consider this, in 1977 alone the albums released superior to Rumours are: Heroes Marquee Moon Exodus The Clash, their finest album Peter Gabriel New Boots and Panties My Aim is True In the City Talking Heads:77 and the album that was released to trash and mock all the...

    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    You are on the money, it was made as an easy listening pop album to make the band money. it has little if any artistic merit as it is overdubbed, over played and over produced. it was made to be be comfortable on the burgeoning MOR FM channels that frequent the States

    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    I can’t think of one decent track on it. I can’t think of a musician who would pick it out as a point of reference. It’s bland to the point of being nothing. Someone posted it won a Grammy in 1978. Big deal, a soulless MOR album given an award by soulless MOR listeners.

    Bluemoon's Official Top 100 Albums

    I meant nothing of the sort. They have no musical taste, couldn’t really have made myself any clearer I thought? Just because lots of people bought may be a fact, but it doesn’t make it a great album, nor does it make the gazillions of buyers anymore knowledgeable. Probably bought it knowing...

    Retiring

    That’s because your FIL is a stupid **** with no aspiration! Hope that doesn’t offend. Retired from full time work six years ago so I could watch City in Europe and go on more ski holidays. Now fully retired and should have done a four month tour of Europe in April until COVID happened...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    I live in north Rossendale, bordering Burnley. My mate says we have our own weather system, so when the chance for no rain arrives we are out in the garden. Looked good for Friday so planned to smoke a brisket for 12 hours and have the family, who mostly work from home, round in the garden. Even...
