Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

Personal tensions fueled nearly every song on Rumours, which makes listening to the album a nearly voyeuristic experience.

Gorillaz - Cracker Island

Cracker Island marks something of a retreat for Gorillaz, moving the virtual group away from the excess of The Song Machine, a multi-part series of collaborations that sometimes threatened to collapse upon its own weight. Guests are still featured on Cracker Island -- collaboration is one of the chief reasons Damon Albarn launched the group at the dawn of the millennium -- But how does it hold up with the RBR.Music team?

The Strokes - Is This It

Blessed and cursed with an enormous amount of hype from the press at the time, The Strokes may or may not be completely arty and calculated, but that doesn't prevent Is This It from being an exciting, compulsively listenable debut. Newsly app promo code: RBRMUS

The Doors - LA Woman

The final album with Jim Morrison in the lineup is by far their most blues-oriented, and the singer's poetic ardor is undiminished, with cuts that rate among their finest and most disturbing work. The seven-minute title track was a car-cruising classic that celebrated both the glamour and seediness of Los Angeles; the other long cut, the brooding, jazzy "Riders on the Storm," was the group at its most melodic and ominous. A worthy finale from the original quartet. Newsly app promo code: RBRMUS

Bruce Springsteen - Only The Strong Survive

Only the Strong Survive may be the first time Bruce Springsteen has recorded an album dedicated to soul and R&B, yet those styles have always been present in his music, welling up in the rhythms and outlook of the E Street Band at their most jubilant.

Ben Harper - Bloodline Maintenance

The soul at the heart of Bloodline Maintenance functions as the music that bonds generations, allowing the singer/songwriter to delve into blues, doo wop, and hip-hop, all in a manner that feels heartfelt, not flashy. The result is one of Harper's richer records: it's impossible to separate the music from the message, which makes it all the more resonant. Newsly app promo code: RBRMUS

Arctic Monkeys - The Car.

The Car is in every way a sequel to Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, the 2018 album that found Alex Turner pushing Arctic Monkeys in the direction his side project Last Shadow Puppets pursued. Louche and lugubrious, The Car is rife with signifiers of a stylish, seedy past: wah-wah guitars, swelling cinematic strings, tinkling ivories, and analog synths. But What's missing?

Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Unlimited Love

Unlimited Love finds the Chili Peppers in jam-band mode, focusing more on sonic moods, surreal lyricism, and the journey itself, not a mainstream hit-fest like turn-of-the-millennium smashes Californication or By the Way but is Unlimited Love worth the hype?
