Four-Album Runs


Recommended Posts

I will light myself on fire before I count "808's and Heartbreaks" - but all of his other albums count I think.

 

I know what you mean, but it's so interesting. And -- not that my habits have anything to do with what you think -- I still listen to it all the time.

Not many have put together a run of four or more great albums:   Zepplin - I, II, III, IV   Stones -- Beggar's Banquet, Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main Street   The Who -- Tommy, Who

Talking Heads' second album spoils a good run.

 

WHAT ARE YOU NUTS?????????????????????????????????????????

 

Where's the classic cut here, other than the cover? Most of these I don't even remember.

 

"Thank You for Sending Me an Angel" – 2:11

"With Our Love" – 3:30

"The Good Thing" – 3:03

"Warning Sign" – 3:55

"The Girls Want to Be With the Girls" – 2:37

"Found a Job" – 5:00

 

Side two

 

"Artists Only" (Byrne, Wayne Zieve) – 3:34

"I'm Not in Love" – 4:33

"Stay Hungry" (Byrne, Chris Frantz) – 2:39

"Take Me to the River" (Al Green, Teenie Hodges) – 5:00

It's not so much that Radiohead suck, but that it's hard to acknowledge that those are all great albums even from the point of view of liking Radiohead. Same problem with Black Sabbath 4 - even if you don't think that Black Sabbath is dreadful soup to nuts, 4 isn't a classic.

 

Disagree. If you view Radiohead as a rock band, you love the first two, begrudgingly include Kid A, bristle and kick out Amnesiac. If you view them as some sort of progressive, arty group, you probably see The Bends as radio fodder and keep the streak going through Amnesiac. That's why they make for an interesting discussion.

See - I actually think Kid A might be their best album, and I still don't love Amnesiac. The Bends is an amazing album, and is something that even people like Stone should acknowledge as a great rock album - even if he hates whiny "Hail to Thief" style Radiohead.

Ummmm, they're ALL classic cuts.

 

As Seth said, it's their best album.
