Huey Lewis and the News truly came into their own with their 1983 third album, Sports. The key to this album's success is the songs, with each having a huge hook and nearly half them becoming big pop hits.

Bruce Springsteen's second album, The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle, was recorded during the summer of 1973 and this may have been Springsteen's nod of nostalgia and final goodbye to the small-town street life as he was moving on to higher ground.

In 1973 Jim Croce found the pinnacle of his career success with the release of two successful albums, Life and Times and I Got a Name. Tragically, Croce was killed in a plane crash in between the release of these two albums.

The Who‘s final album with Keith Moon, 1978’s Who Are You saw the group’s collective vision beginning to change. The arrangements were heavy on synthesizers and strings and an imbalance of cohesive material made it less than excellent while still an interesting record.

Billy Joel decided to take a musical diversion and record an album just for fun. On on An Innocent Man, Joel pays tribute to various popular artist and styles from the pre-Beatles years of his youth and this album's tremendous commercial success was due to the surprising acceptance of Joel's masterful interpretations by 1980s-era listeners.

Jeff Beck's 1968 debut album, Truth, was a groundbreaking and influential record which previewed the sounds of numerous players who would rise to superstardom in the 1970s. The album features a diverse set of tracks consisting of dramatic vocalizing, a thunderous rhythm section and Beck's blistering lead guitar.

Once you’ve put out the biggest selling debut album of all time, it is understandably impossible to produce an apt follow-up. So Don’t Look Back does fall a bit short of Boston‘s incredible 1970s standard. Still, there are moments of brilliance dispersed through this album which are among the finest ever produced by mastermind Tom Scholz.

After more than half a decade crafting and perfecting the songs and the sound, Lucinda Williams finally released the much anticipated <em>Car Wheels on a Gravel Road</em> in 1998. The result is a critical masterpiece which became a landmark in Americana music and all but forged the emeging alt country sub genre.

On their 1968 album In Search of the Lost Chord, the members of The Moody Blues played approximately 33 different instruments, exploring eclectic sounds from the Indian sitar and tambura to the orchestral oboe, flute, harp, and cello. But at its core, this is still a rock album.
