Revisiting Masterpieces

Over the past four nights Radio 1’s Zane Lowe has been showcasing four of the best and most influential albums ever, true masterpieces.

Monday was The Stone Roses by The Stone Roses.

Tuesday was Rage Against The Machine with Rage Against the Machine

Wednesday was the awesome Dark Side Of the Moon by Pink Floyd

and tonight was the Prodigy’s Music For The Jilted Generation.

The shows are fantastic with interviews and documentary pieces on each album then the WHOLE of the album, played in full with no interruptions or jingles.  This is what radio is about.  Brilliant.

I’d never listened to The Dark Side of The Moon all the way through before.  I’m so glad I did.  The Stone Roses took me back to my teens and the Prodigy had me dancing about like an idiot, just like it did in 1994, the year I graduated from Uni.  I missed the Rage Against The Machine show but all four are on the iPlayer.  Have a listen.  Go on.  Give your ears a treat.
