There are artists where greatness comes out like a torrent, and their greatest work will be entirely a matter of individual choice – from Bowie to Abba and The Clash. There are those who have one great album in them – from the Stone Roses to Leftfield. And then there are those where lightning strikes. Just once, but boy what a strike. There are four Mazzy Star albums, all full of their very palatable Velvets meets the Mary Chain schtick. And there’s Fade Into You – when for the only time they pulled all their mood and vibe into an Absolute Killer Tune. There are three Only Ones albums. But only one Another Girl, Another Planet. With some apologies to @freddy-steady whose thread does tread on this . If you can assist, nominations please for otherwise competent, even good artists, with a respectable body of work, who once, just once, are struck by lightning.
