After the departure of the robotic voiced Nico and the abrasive John Cale from the first two Velvet albums, it was finally Lou Reed's band. And despite the Velvet's continued complete lack of commercial success, Reed made the most of it. This is where he takes the front by himself for the first time, and where his songwriting begins to turn towards a more acoustic and melodic place where he would go many times during his solo career.

Down to a four piece band, The Velvets on this record are not quite what the masses would consume, but they were in a constant state of improvement. Reed's songs here, all of them, are stunning and deserve to be heard. may not like the Velvets...and if so, you probably never started a band. This is a great work.

26. All You Need Is Love

A few notes about this album that are pretty important. It was released by Apple Records, which, despite not having signed a new artist in 40 years, is still an active company. All of the tracks were approved upon listening by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. The only piece of newly recorded music on the album is the string section on “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. And despite all of the songs having been heard repeatedly for most or all of our lives, this is actually very good.

Bringing in the seemingly immortal George Martin to produce was very smart. Martin bringing in his son Giles to help was genius. This is a mashup album, and Giles’ understanding of modern production techniques proves invaluable. The transitions are seamless, and the blending of songs could not have been done any better. There is, of course, no questioning the quality of the material. What Love comes down to is the team of Martin & Mar4tin, and they do a splendid job. The music is used in the Cirque De Soleil show, and it’s a single, quite long disc. It works. I never thought I would say that a “new” Beatles album consisting of the same material from the 60’s would be great…but here it is.

10. Starting All Over Again

Bobby Bland has always been kind of the forgotten child of soul and blues music. Always near the top of his craft, he’s also spent his career in the shadow of the likes of Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, and B.B. King. The industry has recognized him well: he’s in both the Blues and Rock & Roll Hall Of Fames, and artists like Van Morrison regularly cover his material, but fans tend to forget him. Too bad, because bland has been a force in music since the early 1950’s.

Midnight Run is a later period album from Bland, and although he was well past his prime at this time (and had also developed a strangely annoying snort!), he shows that he does indeed still have the chops. A little too much keyboard (a real, solid blues band would have been better)can’t hide the fact that Bland could still sing. “You’ve Got To Hurt Before You Heal” is a great song, and his cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone” is a true highlight. This is not Bland at his best by any means, but it does show that after so many years, he was still capable of putting out a winner.

14. Smash

1994 was the year of Offspring. Smash, their third album, was supposed to be the great indie uprising. And it was a good record, led by some not-so-punk songs. The album is still one of the best selling independent release of all time. Led by the unbelievably catchy "Come Out And Play (Keep 'Em Separated)", Smash was a barrage of cool, heavy hits, including "Self Esteem", "Gotta Get Away", and "Bad Habit". A really very exciting record, although its lesser tracks ended up being the most punk of them all.

Offspring sputtered and failed to ride the wave they created. They signed a 7 figure deal with a major label just two years after Smash, and have been fighting to recapture a spark ever since. But Smash is one of the more memorable releases of the mid 90's. Maybe someday they can find the magic again.

I thought you had forgotten R.E.M. but here they are. Master of Puppets are ranked very low but why not ;)
