And to save time, the link inside this article (http://rateyourmusic.com/list/schmidtt/rolling-stones-500-worst-reviews-of-all-time-work-in-progress/) to the 500 worst review in Billboard, A Song For You is No. 175 and the only one on that list.
She wasn't really solo so I agree with others that they should have pictured them as a duo. They could have used the well known duo shot from the cover of the Yesterday Once More LP that would have gone well with their deco theme on the banner.Banner years
There's a large banner of Karen on the side of a building in New Haven, CT. If you click on the link, there's a picture of it and you can zoom in and read it. It's a pretty good little synopsis of Carpenters achievements. The article says the banners have a pretty short lifespan of several years due to weathering. It says most banners are already about 6 years old and cost about $500. I hope they will replace it when it's become too worn.
Here you go, Stephen...Could anyone share it? I got the completely pointless error message “451: Unavailable due to legal reasons”. Something to do with the UK being in the European Union
That would have made much more sense. Very nice Karen was recognized but in this case, there's no good reason to not have just featured the duo together in the picture and name on the banner.They could have used the well known duo shot from the cover of the Yesterday Once More LP that would have gone well with their deco theme on the banner.
To be fair, there's nothing wrong with this. The reviews were written by different people at different times. Or, if the same critic wrote about the same album twice, maybe he gained new insights with time and repeated listening.takes Rolling Stone magazine and the Rolling Stone Record (Album) Guide books for not only the inconsistency of their reviews (rating an album badly in the magazine, well in one record guide, and then badly in the next book),
Rest easy, A&M Retro, you're definitely not losing it! You posted the link to the article just fine (thanks for sharing it!), but for some reason, the webpage was blocked in the UK. I posted the text of the article so that Stephen, and other UK members could read it.Thanks for re-sharing, Murray! Not sure what I did wrong when posting it the first time. I’m apparently losing it!
