Queen's sixth album, ‘News of the World,’ was a return to their original 'rootsier' sound.
Artistically, ‘Automatic For The People’ arguably remains R.E.M’s high-water mark. It continues to attract plaudits from far and wide.
As so often in Beck’s illustrious past, his new project saw him standing on fertile ground, emerging just 18 months after ‘Guero.’
With their ‘Monster’ album, R.E.M. got back to making what guitarist Peter Buck described as a "real noisy rock’n’roll record”.
Among the most underrated albums in his discography, 'Extra Texture' is George Harrison's ‘soul record.’
Arguably less immediate and less accessible than previous R.E.M. landmark albums, ‘New Adventures In Hi-Fi’ was a sprawling, “White Album”-esque affair.
‘Document’ gave R.E.M. the chance to further broaden their palette, fashioning songs from riffs written on instruments such as mandolins and accordions.
George Harrison, along with his mentor Ravi Shankar and a host of stars, pulled off something in 1971 that had never been achieved before.
‘Lifes Rich Pagent’ was a watershed album for R.E.M. on which Michael Stipe gained in confidence as a frontman and began to clearly enunciate his lyrics.
Released in 1992, this album captures George Harrison’s performance with Eric Clapton and remains a joyous celebration of Harrison’s career.
Queen's debut album, released by EMI after many others had turned it away, proved to be an important, auspicious and vital record.
The incredible album topped the UK and US charts and would go on to sell an estimated 12 million copies worldwide.
The 'One Foot In The Grave' album contained plenty of evidence that Beck Hansen’s non-conformist tendencies were undiluted by his new-found notoriety.
In 1996, the double Grammy-winning ‘Odelay’ made Californian Beck a multi-platinum selling artist and an internationally-recognised name.
The difficult third album? That’s a tag that has frequently been attached to R.E.M.’s 'Fables Of The Reconstruction,' but it couldn't be further from the truth.
