As you seem to be a fan of Springsteen I recommend the only other Springsteen album worth having, "Greetings From Asbury Park". Also Counting Crows "August And Everything After" is well worth a listen.

Haha, well, you probably should've guessed that I am a huge Springsteen freak and I definitely know and love Greetings. It would, along with the rest of Springsteen's discography bar maybe Tom Joad, top Tier 4 if I get this far with my lists (I'm adding the Led Zeppelin I've been familiarizing myself with recently at the moment).

I'll check out that Counting Crows, got anymore recommendations outside the artists I've already got down?

Jeff Buckley, "Grace", Radiohead, "The Bends", Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Pronounced" and Bob Dylans "Blonde On Blonde". Thats all Ive got for now.

Good calls. Pronounced and Grace are a couple I intend to work out where to put in. Lot sure how to properly label Grace though since most of my favourite songs from it are on different versions (like Forget Her). Eh, I'll figure something out.

Thanks for responding to my list!

Good call on Grace, bud. Nearly top 5 worthy if there wasn't 5 albums better.

You like Back To Earth more than Tea For The Tillerman? Interesting...

A small margin but yes. There's something about the emotional atmosphere in the first half that pushes Back To Earth above for me.

Rumours is up there for me as well.

Nice! It's one of those albums where it completely deserves the status it has. What else would be top tier for you?

Niiiiiiiice placement for The Bends. You've heard OK Computer, rite?

Yeah man. Needs another listen but it's around top 9/10, it was great, exhausting and often brilliant. The Bends is the right amount of grounded for me, musically. You updated (or felt the need to) your list lately? I'd love to pick up some more recs since I'm basically just consuming music from Rolling Stone's top 500.

Seriously man, recently, I've been getting the same buzz off all this essential music that I had when I was first following IMDb's top 250 and FJ's list etc. Now that I've finished it... the magic of film is mostly in rediscovering classics or waiting for new films. Hmmm. Maybe it's because I've become too critical, where music is more challenging, more evolving. I wouldn't dare make any music even if I felt I could (I mean, I can totally jam on the guitar but I wouldn't write anything). Film however, I want to completely anniliate and transform. I feel like it's in my palm now. I dunno.

I hate to ask this, being as it is incredibly cliche for this site, but; Thoughts on Faust?

Never heard them, where should I start?

They have a self-titled album, and I've seen it a lot on lists of this type, so I thought you'd be familiar with it. I'd try looking at the entire album; It's kinda one of those 'must-listen's
