I'll make it a point to check both of these out this summer.

^Tom Joad is usually around used for under $5; I found mine for $1.99. Needless to say, it's a steal at that price.

Without a doubt the single greatest "traditional" rock-and-roll album ever committed to tape. It is perfect from start to finish, wretched production and all. I have listened to it more times than I have breathed. It is untouchable. Untouchable.

There is a reason why Bono, way back in the day, used to name it as one of the best records ever recorded--because he wasn't always an idiot, and there was a time when he had his finger at least reasonably close to being on the pulse. Holla.

I'm with you on that.

Come to think of it, I find the majority of "traditional" straight-ahead rock pretty dull.

The Ghost of Tom Joad

Subject matter wise, its mostly about the American southwest. A lot to do with Mexican illegal immigrant and migrant workers. Though not every song is about those themes, "Straight Time" . It's a bit slower and quieter than Nebraska, but it's still very good. Not something you would put on to get pumped or excited though.

Have to go with Boy - October on this one. It took awhile for October to grow on me, but it truly is a brilliant album for sure. Boy is an exceptional first album with so much promise and awesome songs.

I don't like the 1st 2. War I'm okay with. I just disagree that it's better than Achtng

you're just ignorant on Springsteen. His 70's stuff is about as far away from "traditional straight ahead rock" as you can get. I can't think of many rock songs that open with a tuba. But Springsteen has one.

that's pretty much their career right there. Burning out too fast. Or just fast enough.
