The Modern Lovers - The Modern Lovers mp3 album

The Modern Lovers is the debut studio album by American rock band the Modern Lovers. It was released on Beserkley Records in 1976, although the original nine tracks had been recorded in 1972 (or 1971 in the case of "Hospital"). Six of the original tracks were produced by John Cale. In 2003, the album was ranked number 381 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The artwork says the recordings are from 1971, but they were actually recorded in 1972. Another set of demos, produced by Kim Fowley, were released as the band's "second album", The Original Modern Lovers, in 1981.

While the sound is in debt to the primal three-chord pounding of early Velvet Underground, the attitude of Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers is a million miles away from Lou Reed's jaded urban nightmares. As he says in the classic two-chord anthem "Roadrunner," Richman is in love with the modern world and rock & roll

The Modern Lovers were formed in 1970 by teenage singer, songwriter, guitarist Jonathan Richman, augmented with Jerry Harrison (keyboards), Ernie Brooks (bass) and David Robinson (drums), with Richman's friend and original band member John Felice joining them occasionally. 180 gram audiophile vinyl.

The Modern Lovers is a fascinating album. It's caught in the tricky period of rock music when progressive rock was leaving and punk and new wave was entering. When popular music was beginning to make a statement that it can be really enjoyable too. This makes the music of the Modern Lovers feel spontaneous and adventure which is a huge reason I enjoy this album so much. Even if this album didn't receive major worldwide success at the time, it certainly sounds like it should have been successful.
