Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic artist: Aerosmith function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Toys In The Attic format: SACD Surround and Stereo label: Columbia Records release year: 2003 performance: 8.5 sound 8 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano I have been debating whether, during my youth, I listened to Toys In the Attic more than Dark Side of the Moon. It has to be close, with the edge going to Dark Side, but the influential chops of Joe Perry spoke to me in loud and clear terms as a teen learning to play hard rock guitar in the mid-1980s. 1975’s Toys In The Attic is the definitive old-school Aerosmith album that captures the cocky, blues-based sound of one of the world’s most popular rock bands at their creative best.

David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust & Spiders From Mars artist: David Bowie function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust & Spiders From Mars format: Hybrid SACD in Surround label: EMI release year: 2003 performance: 10 sound 8 reviewed by: Ben Shyman David Bowie became a mega rock star with the release of his glam-theatric Ziggy Stardust and Spiders from Mars. The creation of plastic rock star Ziggy Stardust in the context of one of music’s most exhilarating, sexy and progressive albums of all time was totally unique. In 1972, Ziggy Stardust hit the scene along with many other great albums, including Harvest (Neil Young), Exile on Main Street (Rolling Stones), Madman Across the Water (Elton John), Chicago V (Chicago) and Close to the Edge (Yes). To this day, there remains something totally unique about Ziggy Stardust that keeps it popular; it’s arguably Bowie’s best. Every song on Ziggy Stardust is a classic and the sheer ingenuity and highly progressive nature of the music and arrangements lends itself perfectly to a multi-channel remix on ...

Peter Gabriel - Us artist: Peter Gabriel function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: US format: SACD Stereo, non-hybrid label: Geffen release year: 2003 performance: 8.5 sound 7.5 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Peter Gabriel was unquestionably a star when he was the frontman of the art-rock incarnation of Genesis in the mid-to-late 1970s, but it was his 1986 album SO that truly solidified his position as a household name in rock and roll pop culture. SO set standards for what could be done with music videos, while simultaneously registering hit after hit after hit song in such a way that his newly expanded audience expected that future albums would be packed with hits.

Peter Gabriel - So artist: Peter Gabriel album: So format: SACD - Stereo - non-hybrid label: Geffen release year: 2003 performance: 9.5 sound 8 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Peter Gabriel’s album So is the pinnacle of pop success for the former Genesis frontman. Leaving the odd time signatures and obscure art rock themes in the 1970s, Gabriel, along with producer Daniel Lanois, created an album that broke ground not only in creative music videos but with meaningful songwriting that passes the test of time nearly 20 years after its release.

Peter Gabriel - Security artist: Peter Gabriel function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Security format: Stereo SACD label: Geffen release year: 1982 performance: 9.5 sound 8 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano 1982’s Security finds the legendary performer and songwriter Peter Gabriel in the later part of his transition from progressive rock icon to pop superstar. Freshly signed to David Geffen’s new record label, Gabriel reportedly turned down significantly more money from other labels to keep full creative control for Security. The gamble was worth it, resulting in an album that works as a whole (think Sgt. Pepper, Dark Side of the Moon, etc.), as well as providing hit songs that were picked up by radio, thus making his new label happy.
