What do you think is Roger's best album (excluding 'The Cross') and WHY?
Mine is 'Happiness?', as it a) contains protest songs and is highly political and b) because it's a coherent album which doesn't fall to pieces because of a lousy song-order.
Strange Frontier is a close second though!
Well, I have to go for Happiness? too. But only because that album has a meaning for me personally. Brings back memories of one of the happiest periods in my life ;-)
Strange Frontier indeed is a good number two. Some outstanding songs but also some crap. The other ones? Sorry, but the songwriting on Fun in Space (although pretty cool as a cult-thing) and especially Electric Fire is way way below standard!
Go ahead, shoot me! I know some of you will ;-)))
Loved Fun in space and Strange Frontier back in the 80's when they came out. I must admit I don't really listen to them anymore. I never liked Happniness? when it was released but loved Electric Fire instantly. Now only recently I started to listen to Happiness? and it really starts to grow on me (but slowly..)
