The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle is the most perennially overlooked Springsteen album, and I'd place it above at least a couple of those in the top five.

That album is alright. I think Springsteen mostly came into his own on the Born to Run album like every other sane person.

I didn't say that it was better than Born To Run, but it's definitely better than Born in the USA.

Well I meant that his earliest albums weren't as good as the 5 I listed. You really don't think it's better than Born in the USA? I hope you're not saying that just because of how popular that album was.

No, I mean there's a few songs on there that I can't stand - "Darlington County", "Bobby Jean", "I'm Going Down", and another couple that are just OK. I like every song on Wild & Innocent, and some of it - "Sandy", "57th Street", "Rosalita" - is in league with his best.

"Working on the Highway" also is butt.

I probably should relisten to Wild a couple more times. But judging from my first few initial listens he doesn't seem to have quite the same knack for arranging songs as he does with his later albums.

Just listened to Tyler's new album and liked it a lot. His production has improved by the tenfold.

Just started listening to it! After this I'm going to listen the Meek Mill's newest album which I've been hearing very good things about. I'll report back to you late, Det.

I'm listening to the Meek Mill album now, it's alright. Kind of monotonous actually. I prefer his mixtapes.

I listened to Tyler. Liked it alright, but will probably take a couple more listens to flesh out my feelings. Started listening to Meek, and as usual the intro is fire, but I only listened to a couple more songs before I went to bed. Back to Tidal I go!

You guys listening to the new French Montana album? It has some choice cuts and every song is at least decent. Which is pretty hard to do for such a long album.

French Montana? You mean the dude who assumed he was on par with Khloe Kardashian's basketball-playing boyfriends simply because he was her rebound guy? That dude actually makes good music?

I like his mixtapes a lot, his albums aren't as good but they're still fun to listen to.

Hey fellow white people, the new Arcade Fire album is out. It's disco-y.

Despite getting bad reviews, I like a lot of songs from the new Arcade Fire album. Also the new Queen of the Stone age album came yesterday and i'm listening to it right now. So far I like the music, but the arrangements are a little rocky.

Two good Hip Hop albums that also came out recently - Brockhampton - Satyricon 2 and Lil B - Black Ken

I'm definitely getting the new War on Drugs album, but stopped paying attention to Arcade Fire around the suburbs and I don't regret that decision at all. Also, just to get it out of the way, Taylor Swift's new single is bad and makes her look terrible. "Tilted stage"? Who on earth are you talking about Taylor??????@???????? I actually enjoyed a lot of 1989 too, it was crazy catchy.

I also love that they got Blurred Lines'd and added Right Said Fred as songwriters, that case is making for some interesting credits-- like Animal Collective on that Lemonade song. Or TLC on that song I never listened to.

Unless it was interpolated on purpose in which case the question is "Why?"
