#90 - Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home



All the folkies wanted to hang him for this. Doesn't sound all that bad to me.

Quote:

He said he's bringin it home, but he's not taking it anywhere.
Quote:
Poetry for sheep. Music for the faint-of-heart. If you're too stoned to detect bullshit lyrics, or too afraid to experience truly emotional music, then give up audio pleasures altogether, instead of fooling yourself that you're being immersed into a "whole new world of low-key working-class (my ass) intellect". Actually, what you're really doing is falling into one of the many traps that quasi-artists-turned-charlatans have set for the gullible among us. Whether it be Picasso, Andy Warhol, Velvet Underground, or li'l Bob, they're all the same at the end of the day: a**holes who get rich because some people simply can't tell their ass from their nose, let alone quality art from quick-buck bullshit "art".

Oh, and "Mr.Tambourine Man" is junk, not a classic. "Bob Dylan's 115th Dream" is to rake in enough dough to shame Mother Theresa! And that was a high-class crook, barely to be matched by anyone.

The gaul this ugly little twerp has to name a song by referring to himself in the third person. "Bob Dylan Wipes His Behind With 100-Dollar Bills"; that's still in the third person, but at least it would be honest. "Mr.Zimmerman Has Decided Not To Give Any Interviews In Order To Preserve His Baloney Mysterious Aura". Now, THAT would be truly honest! Isn't folk-rock supposed to be drenched in truth and honesty? Yeah, right.

#89 - Simon & Garfunkel - Bookends



Damn straight. Their best album and absolutely, 100% deserves to make the list. Such a pretty, unassuming record.

Quote:
I love Simon & Garfunkel, but I hate this [in my sincere opinion] pretentious-pseudo-intectual-shitty-work.
Quote:
Floats past without making much of an impression[...]
Quote:
The music is, for me, questionable, but I've always found their music questionable. It is nice enough, and I admit to liking it, but it exudes a sense of process, and it is slick, and nothing too much happens.
Can YOU guess which quote is from Rolling Stone?

#88 - The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour



Fuck every other album on this list. THIS one has Strawberry Fields Forever.

Quote:
Remove 'Strawberry Fields' and 'I Am the Walrus', forget it's The Beatles, and listen to this album. Yeah, that's right, it's absolute shit, just like the movie.
Quote:
Flying, Blue Jay Way, Your Mother Should Know, Baby You're A Rich Man. Did the group just not try to write a complete album or were they out of ideas? The so-called better tracks, Penny Lane and Strawberry Fiels suffer from Paul's lightweight writing and John's nasally singing - "Straw Berry Fieeeelds For Eveh.."
Ugh.

Who knows, but it sure doesn't stand up to anything before or after its release. Anyone who rates this 5-stars is simply swept up in the Beatles. They can't be listening to the music.
Quote:
Resale Bin Candidate, August 15, 2000
By A Customer
With tracks like "Blue Jay Way", "Flying" and "Your Mother Should Know", this album has the worst Beatle filler on it of any album except the White Album. "Strawberry Fields" always gets recognition, but John Lennon just couldn't sing - with that nasally "Strawberrie FIELDS For-eveh" being repeated.
