Not to do his defense for him, but a great example is not including ‘Someday My Prince Will Come’ which is a Columbia studio album of Davis’ from 1961. Under those parameters it should absolutely be on the list, but somehow it isn’t. I don’t know if this was an oversight from the writer or not, but simple correctable errors like that really distract from the overall quality of the list.
Can someone explain to me why ‘Someday My Prince Will Come’ isn’t on this list?
Untouchable album from start to finish, don’t know if I’ve ever recovered after hearing “Things Done Changed” for the first time. Only “criticism” I have is I don’t know if the battle between Biggie and Meth on “The What” is as lopsided as Tom seems to think. Meth’s rasp and the way he’s inhaling when he raps just sounds incredible on that one.
From the body of the text I don’t see anything even remotely close to “harassment” and that headline is remarkably sensationalist in approach.
Are you counting ‘This Is Your Bloody Valentine’ and ‘Ecstasy’?
Solid list up and down, though “Fluorescent Adolescent” will always be number 1.
Rock and pop are both incredibly nebulous terms. It’s how artists like Sam Cooke are able to get in.
Had I not seen or read the similarly silly CoS article, I probably would’ve guessed Bill Haley or Ike Turner or someone since it says “father.”
Why is the same conflation happening here that happened on CoS earlier when they wrote about this? They didn’t directly remove those ashes to make room for any outfit from Beyonce. Also it’s the only piece of Freed material that seems to be leaving the Hall, so it’s not like they’re erasing the memory of him.
*Further proof that Nicki Minaj excels at rapping.
