Since our recent revamp of the rating system here, I have had one nagging doubt about the move: How to distinguish true masterpieces from other really good albums. For example, there are a LOT of Rush albums that get the Adore it rating. But those are certainly not all equal.
So, I have decided that for certain albums, they will be introduced as "Essentials" right in the review title. The rest of the review will follow the same format, but those albums get that extra special label. And to kick it off, the first review will be for a doozy of an album.
