ALBUMS

The Ghost of Tom Joad.jpg

  • BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD: 1995: 3 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Bruce’s first album since the the first real negative reaction he received with Human Touch/ Lucky Town. The album is more in the mode of Nebraska than his other albums. A mixed bag- some really good songs- Youngstown is a real standout. Brucemania was over- the album went to #11 on the album charts and there was nothing even close to a hit single. It would be seven more years before another Bruce album.

Crowded house - ch.jpg

  • CROWDED HOUSE: CROWDED HOUSE: 1986: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Their debut album and its A perfect pop music album. Don’t Dream Its Over their biggest hit ever #2 one of my favorite 1980’s songs- this is their most commercial album- nearly every song sounds like a hit to my ears. Best pop album of the decade?

The Civil War

  • KEN BURNS CIVIL WAR SOUNDTRACK:  1990: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS:  My go-to album when traveling around a battlefield.

  1. Love Revolver. “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” “Something So Strong” and “That’s What I Call Love” are beautiful Crowded House songs but honestly, I couldn’t get into much of the rest of the album. :shrug: I’ll say this, it’s an album I always wish I could get into. Maybe I’ll give it another spin sometime soon. 🙂

  2. Crowded House was great. As I recall, Don’t Dream It’s Over was used in the TV mini-series of Stephen King’s The Stand.

    What? Yellow Submarine wasn’t at the top of the list?

    • I have listened to a number of Civil War soundtracks- music- the Burns one to me has always sounded the best. Enjoy!
