They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

One of the acclaimed albums I always wished I could get into more. It always just felt to me like the commercialization of music I like much better without the pop element added to the mix. No "personal" favorites, but I do really like the first two, and the next four are pretty good, as well.

06 | You Can Call Me Al
02 | Graceland
07 | Under African Skies
01 | The Boy in the Bubble
04 | Gumboots
03 | I Know What I Know
05 | Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes
11 | All Around the World or the Myth of Fingerprints
10 | That Was Your Mother
09 | Crazy Love, Vol. II
08 | Homeless

Overall album rating: 5.63 (Okay)

A very good, even daring album, but it has always seemed odd juxtaposing buoyant music with cerebral unease in the lyrics.
