    I laugh at people who put up their ignorant faces saying "huh isn't that like Duran Duran new wave shite" when I claim this is one of the best albums ever in any genre. People are so dumb. The age of sock will set you all straight.

If there are any albums which inhabit a similar habitat as this and it's precursor, I'd say Van Morrison's Astral Weeks, Bitches Brew by Miles davis and Scott Walker's Scott trilogy.
