This is one of the few album retrospectives that actually lives up to the intention and purpose of an album retrospective... Meaning, 90% (or more) of the subject matter being discussed, is the album in question. I know, what a fanciful idea, lol... though if you had any idea how many "album documentaries" I've seen that spent only 10% of the time on the album whose name and description they pull you in with, while wasting 90% of the time on other albums, origins, break-ups/solo-careers, etc... you might wonder why I still bother giving these my time, from time to time... and this "Classic Album" retrospective is why. They did it right.
They got the band members and even both co-managers as well as the producer (and minimal "talking heads") to give the bulk of the commentary and insight into the making of this album -- that's how it's supposed to be -- and if you can't get the artists, key collaborators, etc., then why waste your time making a lame documentary about it full of idiotic talking heads &/or haters and fanatics?? Sigh.
Anyway, a breath of fresh air for a change -- and man, I forgot how many awesome songs were on this album!
