It’s a big week for classic rock fans: The Who’s iconic release Who’s Next just celebrated its 50th anniversary, while Metallica’s pivotal Black Album just turned 30.

Join the one and only Eric Alper and I as we discuss the two albums, pick our personal favourites (sorry, Metallica) and ponder whether any contemporary artists and LPs will be remembered decades from now.
