Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.
Stevie Wonder: Journey Through The Secret Life Of Plants
After four incredibly great records (Talking Book, Innervisions, Fullfillingness' First Finale, Songs In The Key Of Life), this double record dog came out. Fortunately, it was followed by another terrific record, Hotter Than July.
When I was a kid, I played Songs in the Key of Life
until it unravelled in my cassette player. One of the best albums ever.
Then when ...Plants
came out I rushed to record store to get it. I remember thinking "what the hell is this?? A documentary film soundtrack written by a blind man?!!?"
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States...The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'.” - Isaac Asimov
