#321 Gene Clark – No Other

Former Byrds‘ member Gene Clark released No Other is 1974 to critical success only. I have not been a fan of The Byrds, but I am willing to give Clark a chance, even though the album is a bit country music. Hopefully, the rock music will be more prevalent. Clark was extremely disappointed in the failure of […]

#94 The Byrds

The Byrds again? Noooooooo! I have not liked any of their albums on this list. I highly doubt Younger Than Yesterday will change my mind. Does anyone like this band? Does anyone listen to any of this music? Am I alone? The albums begins badly with “So You Want to Be a Rock ‘n’ Roll Star“. They decided to […]

The album triangles on three genres: country rock, folk rock and psychedelic pop […]

The Byrds again. Some of these groups are over-represented in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The Byrds should not have another album in the list. If I were in charge I would delete the album Fifth Dimension. It sounds exactly like their previous album. I listened to the Byrds in the hopes that this would be better than the last album, but I had the same thought. Many of these songs sound like “Turn! Turn! Turn!” It seems […]

The Byrds is for the birds. I do not get it. Mr. Tambourine Man was murdered by them, but not in a good way. They are so boring. I did not like one song. I will not waste your time talking about them. I will say they are better than Joan Baez. I would rather talk about a duo who came out the same year […]
