It’s no secret that I’m a rock guy. Metallica, Ozzy, Tool, GNR….on and on. But, there are some albums I like that might surprise you. Everyone has them. Steve Black is a huge Cure fan. Screamin’ Scott loves Paul Revere and the Raiders.
#3 – Bruce Hornsby “The Way It Is”. Great songs, well written, well played by musicians who are top notch. Just one of those records you put on and walk away.
#2 – Don Henley “Building The Perfect Beast”. I mean, what more has to be said about an Eagle. With songs like “The Boys Of Summer”, “All She Wants To Do Is Dance” and “Sunset Grill” – which is a tad “Hotel California”-ish with darker undertones and over 6 minutes long – this record is a great listen.
#1 – Tears For Fears “Songs From The Big Chair”. I mean, monster hits like “Shout”, “Head Over Heals” and “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”, this album is a classic.
