Throwing Pennies at the Bridges Down Below (an Astral Weeks blog)
Thursday, May 22, 2014
The Guardian scratches a tiny list itch and catalogs five sophomore albums that were better than the artist's debut. The choices were pulled together from suggestions put forth on Facebook and Twitter (blech). What will interest readers of this blog (all three of you) is that the list was inspired by a cursory spin of Astral Weeks. (Acknowledged in the blog post as "possibly one of the best albums of all time and certainly one of the best second albums of all the time.") Have at it.
