  • Clean and clear and open are nice qualities, but rich and full are harder to come by on this record - but here they are!
  • "It wasn’t remotely a sequel to Purple Rain. On first listen, it was instantly clear that the album was a dramatic left-turn, with none of the flashy guitar and few of the pop hooks. The sound was bright and sweet, as opposed to low-end raunch. If Prince had streamlined and rocked up his approach for global domination, now he was creating something more intimate, cerebral, and challenging... a brave and deeply personal project, exploring sounds and ideas that were almost shocking coming from a pop icon at his peak."

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Even without a single, Remain in Light was a hit, indicating that Talking Heads were connecting with an audience ready to follow their musical evolution and the album was so inventive and influential, it was no wonder."

Working with producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, U2 created a dark, near-hallucinatory series of interlocking soundscapes that are occasionally punctuated by recognizable songs and melodies."

  • 5 stars: "Reckoning runs through a set of ten jangle pop songs that are different not only in sound but in style from the debut. Where Murmur was enigmatic in its sound, Reckoning is clear, which doesn't necessarily mean that the songs themselves are straightforward. Michael Stipe continues to sing powerful melodies without enunciating, but the band has a propulsive kick that makes the music vital and alive... the songwriting is more direct and memorable than before..."

Originally released in 1982, the album chronicles the growth of the band, both stylistically and personnel-wise...

  • An outstanding pressing of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's sophomore album, earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides

  • 4 stars: "Stevie Ray Vaughan's second album, Couldn't Stand the Weather, pretty much did everything a second album should do: it confirmed that the acclaimed debut was no fluke, while matching, if not bettering, the sales of its predecessor, thereby cementing Vaughan's status as a giant of modern blues.

  • A superb copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from the first note to the last - exceptionally quiet vinyl too

Where Murmur was enigmatic in its sound, Reckoning is clear, which doesn't necessarily mean that the songs themselves are straightforward. Michael Stipe continues to sing powerful melodies without enunciating, but the band has a propulsive kick that makes the music vital and alive... the songwriting is more direct and memorable than before..." - All Music

  • 5 Stars: "Opening with the ominous, fiery protest of "Sunday Bloody Sunday," War immediately announces itself as U2's most focused and hardest-rocking album to date. Blowing away the fuzzy, sonic indulgences of October with propulsive, martial rhythms and shards of guitar, War bristles with anger, despair, and above all, passion... U2 always aimed at greatness, but War was the first time they achieved it."
