  •  Morrison sometimes got lost in his ego, but he had (3+ / 0-)

    a fine poetic gift when his mind was sharp. The first album's outstanding, Strange Days and Morrison Hotel are very strong, and LA Woman is rich and extremely original. Lots of great songs.

    Blue is as true and direct as the sky on a winter morning - a lot of people were deeply touched by it. Very courageous, but Joni always is.

    Paul Simon is such a master of his craft. I admire how he layers a rich bed of sound, but keeps his voice so clear and calmly to the fore - his tunes stay with you, but his best lines ring in your head for years.
