jehovahs witness protection: Because Fleetwood Mac sucks?


Really??

I can see not being into them. I can certainly see not being interested in their current incarnation as Christine MacVie isn't involved (I fall into that category), or simply because they are 30 years past their prime.

But claiming they suck? Rumors was one of the greatest albums ever recorded. Its a perfect album. Even if you don't like them you have to acknowledge their importance to music.

unfarkingbelievable: gilgigamesh: Born to Run is one of the most important albums ever recorded in modern contemporary music.

How? Why? I'm serious. I love his music. I'm just interested in knowing what the unbiased dynamics are that justify this assertion.


I'm not going to appeal to authority, but I will point out that it has made several "Top 500 albums ever" list.

But my main reason for asserting it is simple: influence. It changed the direction of popular music, bringing about an era of "Americana" style that sounded the death-knell of British invasion style that had dominated the previous decade.

It brought back the sax, as opposed to guitar, as a lead instrument in rock; something that disappeared completely since the days of early black R&B groups of the 50s.

It established Springsteen as a legend, and influenced countless musicians over the last 35-odd years. That's for starters.

For example, I don't like Bruce Springsteen, but even though it isn't my cup of tea, I still acknowledge that Born to Run is one of the most important albums ever recorded in modern contemporary music.
