  • MADONNA: THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION: 1990: 5+ STARS OUT OF 5 STARS:IPOD: POP: I’ve never cared much for Madonna’s albums- they seem like a few great singles and filler to me- but a collection of her 1980’s singles here- top notch.

  • NEIL YOUNG: RUST NEVER SLEEPS: 1979: 5+ STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: IPOD: My favorite Neil Young album. Recorded live and then overdubbed in the studio. Mt. Rushmore- “My My Hey Hey”, “Pocahontas”, “Thrasher” and my all time favorite Neil song “Powderfinger.”

  1. Nice mix of music you got here, Hans. The Madonna compilation really is an impressive illustration how she ruled in the ’80s.

    I still remember when I listened to ‘Like a Virgin for the first time, I dismissed Madonna as ‘a brainless blonde’ – I know it’s really terrible to say this, but it’s the truth. Needless to add I subsequently changed my opinion! 🙂

  2. You surprise me…but that’ s not a criticism. It’s not cool to like Madonna but that collection is aces…she put out a lot of good singles early in her career. Neil rocks & the M.Sweet GH is highly under-ratedvas well.

    • I love Madonna’s singles- especially in the 80’s- the second collection of greatest hits- is fine- but the 80’s were her time. Was there a better singles artist from that decade? She was consistent. But again her albums- didn’t do much for me.

  3. For me, Madonna’s music and her videos do it for me. She’s a multi-media experience. I also saw a film doc on one of her tours that was really good. Papa Neil good’n. Haven’t heard the Sweet, but I have to thank whomever (was it Dave?) brought the Sweet/Hoffs collaboration covers to my attention.
