    Suggest you appeal your dissatisfaction with the quoted words to Russ who authorized them as relevant to RHP's Culture Forum..

    I might take Van Morrison's Astral Weeks or David Bowie's Hunky Dory.

    If you wish to discuss songwriters with the people who frequent the Culture Forum, I suggest you start a thread about it there.
