Inspired by a conversation I had earlier today with my Dad. The opening track is often key to the listener's fondness for an album, whether it is a quiet and relaxed introduction or an all-out statement of the band's intent. SO what are some of CW's favourite openers?
A few favourites of mine to get the ball rolling:
Pink Floyd - Astronomy Domine - Piper At The Gates Of The Dawn
Television - See No Evil - Marquee Moon (my personal favourite)
David Bowie - Station To Station - Station To Station
Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot - Daydream Nation
Pixies - Bone Machine - Surfer Rosa
Radiohead - Everything In It's Right Place - Kid A
Obviously, that's just quick tossed-out examples. There are loads more. Hopefully the good members of CW and their diverse taste can come up with some interesting suggestions!
