Love “Forever Changes” is one of the seminal sixties albums and one of the top psychedelic albums of all times according to serious music fans and critics. The band may not be familiar to many people but Love was Los Angeles’ biggest band before the incredible ascent of the Doors.
It’s the 20th anniversary (already?) of the release of this seminal album which fused together acid house, psychedelic soul and good ole rock n’ roll. This is the album that elevated Primal Scream onto a mainstream level and became the soundtrack to our lives for a period of time and with good reason.
Hailed as one of the albums that helped signal the end of the 60’s, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” is where rock/pop meets the theatre and is considered to be a Bowie masterpiece.
An eclectic and well-implemented array of live musical influences and the raw resonance of the production define 'Smokers Delight', marking it out as an album that rises above the too often bleep-orientated ambience of the leftfield movement
As the title suggests, this album successfully blends the boundaries between human and robot to the point where it's unclear quite exactly what Kraftwerk are. Check out this playlist of music that inspired the sound of 'The Man-Machine'
"When I rap, I get to express myself in a way where putting words together is like poetry, and sometimes it's better to talk in certain expressions than sing, you know? So I love, I love to rhyme when I want to express certain things." Wyclef Jean
