They made a factual error in their analysis, regarding Kate Bush 'Hounds Of Love'. They said without this album, there would be no Tori Amos. Tori herself in one interview said that she honestly had not listened to any Kate Bush records, and only started buying them after someone remarked to her how similar her voice was. Mind you, Tori at the time (mid-80s), was fronting a hard rock band and it's only her later work that began to show shades of Kate. Perhaps that influence began to show later on? I'm sure she hates to be compared to Kate anyway.
I'm pleased to see the 'banana' album at number one - a fantastic album. Run Run Run would be my fave song on VU&N. I've been listening to a lot of Nico lately, her albums Chelsea Girl and The Marble Complex - which is an amazing album - one of the strangest albums I've ever heard.. it's like Bjork 25 years before her time - for 1969 it must be the first true goth album ever. It's sad how Nico died. She was riding a bike with her son and got knocked off, dying of head injuries. A bit like Kirsty MacColl.. equally as tragic..
I needed comfort of love just to get me some piece of mind.. wo-oh
