I know some artists have "Top Album" which is generated by plays on Audioscrobbler but some of these Essential choices that I assume were made by the Editor of FRH are bewildering.

George Harrison - Cloud Nine

Seriously? This slightly moldy bowl of Lynne overproduction is above the towering triple LP debut that encompassed all of the attributes that made Harrison such a dynamic and original voice.

U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

I'm not going to get into the Joshua Tree vs. Achtung Baby twiddling, but really, this?

Blondie - The Best Of

Blondie's albums were surprisingly filler free for a band at the top of the singles game. Everything on Parallel Lines screams "radio megaclassic"

REM - Automatic For The People

I can ALMOST see this but Murmur still gives me shivers. Did those four guys grow up in the inner woods of Athens, raised by magical pixies?

to carry on from that point

MSP - Send Away the Tigers

Even though I have grown to detest the Manics, I'd definitely recommend Everything Must Go or The Holy Bible before the aformentioned album.

The Chemical Brothers - Push The Button

Certainly not their greatest album. I'd change it to Exit Planet Dust or Dig Your Own Hole.

Art of Noise - The seduction of Claude Debussy

Not as good as (Who's Afraid Of) The Art of Noise

being a lifetime beatles fan ( born feb 5 1961 )
he was one of the most talented lead guitarists ever he should have gone in alot sooner & ahead of many other more modern artists that went in before him

now all we have to do is get the drummer from the Beatles in as a solo artist & the mop top quartet from liverpool england will be complete

And one last New Year's wish here, from the late great George Harrison.

Ring out the old
Ring in the new
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ring out the false
Ring in the true
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong

Yesterday, today was tomorrow
And tomorrow, today will be yesterday
So ring out the old
Ring in the new
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ring out the false
Ring in the true
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong

All Things Must Pass!

George Harrison has the distinction of being both the first AND last solo Beatle to have a #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. "My Sweet Lord" hit #1 on December 26, 1970 while "Got My Mind Set On You" hit #1 on January 16, 1988. Since then the highest charting Beatles-related single was "Free As a Bird" which hit #6 in 1996.

THE GEORGE HARRISON/MADONNA CONNECTION

1. The first four words in Madonna's "Borderline" are "Something in the way"

2. The chorus of "Material Girl" says "We are living in the material world." GH had an album and song called "Living in the Material World" and...

3. George Harrison did the score for Madonna's 1986 film "Shanghai Surprise"
