There’s a lot of fun to be had putting together ranking lists as I have done before with The Beatles and Cream, so I thought I’d do the same again but with Wings. Wings are a band that some people make fun of these days but I personally love them, with McCartney continuing his excellent songwriting he started with The Beatles. The two bands can’t be compared for obvious reasons, but I love Wings and their seven albums, so here is my ranking from least favourite to favourite.
A year ago I said that 2016 wasn’t the best year for new music, but it was considerably better than 2017 in my opinion. There haven’t been many new albums that have stood out, but the following are my favourites from the year.
Cream have long been one of my all time favourite bands and in their short time together they released four studio albums with two containing live tracks. So just like a previous OPINION PIECE article where I ranked Beatles album, I thought I’d do the same with Cream. It’s important to mention that the ranking is my opinion only. Let me know your thoughts.
As a guitarist myself I’m often thinking about my favourite guitarists and how my ranking seems to change depending on what kind of mood I’m in. I thought it’d be fun to put a top 10 list together. Remember, the key word here is favourite. Enjoy.
I don’t think it’s been the best year for new music but six albums have stood out the most to me, six albums I have thoroughly enjoyed.
As a whole I think I tend to listen to more live recordings than I do studio albums, especially from the late 60’s and early 70’s. That period for me is second to none when it comes to live music. The places bands took music, including those listed below, have never been reached since in my opinion. At least not the same extent. So, the following are my top five live albums of all time. Enjoy.
