1 The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
One would be hard pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground and Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes an audible debt to this set. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy pop ("Sunday Morning"), tough garage rock ("Waiting For The Man"), stripped-down R&B ("There She Goes Again"), and understated love songs ("I'll Be Your Mirror") when they weren't busy creating sounds without pop precedent. …

Aha, here are The Beatles again. Slowly falling apart. This album is a collection of songs made by John Lennon, songs made by Paul McCartney, a few songs made by George Harrison and even one by Ringo Starr. Reading the story about this album is learning the story of songs recorded without all of the other band members even knowing about it (Julia, Why Don't We Do It in the Road?,...) and there's only one song on which John Lennon and Paul McCartney sing together (Birthday). Out of 30 songs! The result is an album that has a lot of variation from the beginning to end. And as all songs have a Beatles stamp on them, this doesn't lower the coherence.
It is said about this album that it somehow marked the end of the psychedelic era, the Beatles coming back with their feet on the ground. But concluding this is a regular pop/rock album would be wrong. There is a great variation in styles, and the boundaries The Beatles are trying out reach even further than on Revolver. …

It's Beatles Week! Day 2: Richard Starkey a/k/a Ringo Starr, MBE
(soucre: Boston Herald)
I'll start my salute to the individual members with the oldest Beatle, who also always had the most sunny disposition of all of them!
He might have felt like the bottom of the heap over in Europe, sitting behind leader John, "cute Beatle" Paul, and boyish George, but when they all came here, the American girls fell for his quirky humor and self-deprecating humor. How many screaming girls at those Beatlemania shows were wearing those "I Love Ringo" buttons?
I always felt particularly bad for poor Ringo during the final days of The Beatles, especially when you look at all those pictures from the era of Let It Be, when no one could muster a smile behind all those long, haggard looks. All he wanted was to keep making all that magic Beatle music with his best mates, but you can see him realizing a split is inevitable…
