A disaster. While I enjoyed some of the guitar licks, they are wasted on these poorly written songs. The whole thing just comes off immature. As if the band was simply trying too hard to be weird and different to grab attention from the public. It is a disgrace to put albums like this next to the greats on the list, no matter how good some musicians are individually.

This might be fun (one time) as a live show but it doesn't translate well on record. His voice sounds like a bad Elvis impersonator doing Billy Idol. It seems like they are trying to cross to many genres at once but don't connect with any of them, it doesn't work. I can hear some Jack White/LZ in there but it would be at their worst (give me Jack White anytime). This one goes nowhere for me. 1.5 out of 5, so should I give it a 1 or a 2?

Mon compagnon d'écoute, l'inevitable Robtupperwear m'avait pourtant prévenu: cet album est extremement dangereux. C'est néammoins empli de curiosité que je me dirigeais en cette matinée vers mon compte Spotify, pour lancer l'album du denommé Jon Spencer. D'entrée de jeu, nous avons affaire à un imposteur - l'album ne contenant pas la moindre trace de blues. A la place, un cri strident s'echappe de la bouche de Jon a intervalle irregulier, ce qui rend l'écoute pour le moins désagréable. Pour le reste, un simple album de rock underground sans aucun intérêt, une sorte de Minutemerde en un peu moins pire. Un 2 néammoins, car nous avons déjà vécu bien pire dans cette fabuleuse épopée.

Who would've thought that the band that wrote Bellbottoms, a song I enjoy immensely, would write other songs that I enjoy immensely. I can hear so many influences in bands I like coming out of this album - BDoD, VU (inspired by), Autolux even. A great modern garage rock LP

32 tracks...... I can't stand phony over the top singers. But I love a good "Yeah" or yell in the middle of my grooves. Sometimes I feel like this guy is like a caricature of a Rock Genius. But it might be his lyrics, or that voice that is giving me pause. But by the end I was enjoying myself. I really enjoyed the band for sure, will definitely have this on in the background of a BBQ. distortion out of 5

Incredibly unique, for better or for worse. Sometimes it comes across as groovy hi-volume punk rock with an Elvis Presley inflection, and sometimes it comes across as white people making noise for the sake of it. I can see why people would dislike it for the latter, but the former is just too intriguing for me to not enjoy. Album just kinda chugs along though, taking no time to let you digest the previous song as it hurls you into the next, and then the one after that. Herein, it makes for mainly nonsense and I can't help but shake that this sort of music is mainly built for a live crowd to just go buck wild, with little semblance of a setlist, opting for just "vibeS" (except the vibes are loud, crazy, and energy that are all off the charts).

I've been waiting to get this album since I saw it was in the bottom ten of the entire book for a while. Not trying to be contrarian, but I really enjoyed this. This album is some dirty blues. I can see how it would be abrassive to some, especially on the first few tracks, but once you get into the madness, it's easy to get lost in. Favorite tracks: "Chicken Dog", "Hot Shit", "R.L. Got Soul"

Raw garage-rock, sounded a lot like The Stooges and bands of that ilk. Really lively and exciting sounds, plenty of punk attitude and cool guitar and I like his singing style. I would love to mosh to tracks like 'Wail' in a club. Some of the experimental tracks are interesting but unnecessary and make the album a bit too long. On the whole though, some great stuff, I really enjoyed it.

I almost made the mistake to rate this album a 1 by just listening the screaming of the first song but, i always like to give another chance before the rating and was not disappointed. This is surely not a gold record in the sense of lyricism by any means but, it's still a fun experimental rocking live sounded type of record. Never heard of this band before in my life but i'll definitely give this more listens in the near future.

I was not expecting to like this, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. It's blues rock (which I typically find boring) with a punk rock edge, which really helped me with this. There's a much better sound with that added gritty aggression.

The band smacks you over the head in the first minute with what one would could call a tuning or Spencer not quite getting there. That choice, however, like so many others which read as bombastic when introduced, is in facto considered enough to be consistent. That consideration might bear other fruit, or I might be blinded by the right kind of stupid that rockabilly entails. But the other voices aren't stupid, and neither is the way the Explosion gradually expands its palette, coming to a stop in Xiu Xiu territory. Not for everyone, but I'm a particularly grateful listener.

I've seen them in concert and enjoyed it, sadly this studio version didn't hit so well. A fella hollering full volume in a little packed club is a little different than getting it on your headphones at work where it's basically the equivalent of someone screaming right in your ear. Could be the not great (though far from terrible) streaming plus middle of the road headphones, but the mix on this was gratingly heavy on the high end for me. Nails on blackboards. Even for all that it's pretty unique.

A rowdy racket of an album, with musical ideas by the bucketful. Unfortunately, like some other albums on here, this means that it can feel an unfocussed slog, I'd have rather had 2 albums 40 mins long than one at 80, but a great listen for the music all the same.

There's a fine line between an album carrying in its energy from start to finish, and becoming a bit one-note. If it wasn't for songs like Can't Stop, with a different pace tot them this would be the latter for me. Psych-scuzzy nonsense, this should be right up my alley, but it didn't grip me, maybe it needed a couple of out and out bangers, maybe I'll like it better if I hear it on my normal set of headphones. Plenty of fun though.

It started off fairly strong, as noise albums go. I like the guitar, and while it's mostly noise from the singer, I kinda liked it at first. But then it just kept going. And going. And going. Cut the runtime in half and you have something here, otherwise it just seems a little self-indulgent. There's no way that there isn't something that could've been lost in a 80 minute album.

Hmm... a lot of this album felt like adolescent swearing and shouting for shock value with ‘experimental’ production that was little more than quickly turn the volume up and down. Then a few gems would show up - great rock tracks - and just as I started to get into it, there’d be some juvenile, repetitive tracks again to take me out of it. Felt indulgent and deliberately alienating.

I found myself wrestling with what separates Jon Spencer Blues Explosion from Gun Club or even early Black Keys in terms of punky, garage-y blues. And I think it's the songwriting and vocals. I just don't feel like Jon Spencer has all that much to say, and he says it in a kind of grating way. It's all attitude and no substance. Nevertheless, I wouldn't turn down an opportunity to see this band melt some faces at a packed tavern in their prime! Rating: 2.5/5 Favourite tracks: Wail, Rocketship

The traditional American blues-y sound of the Jimi Hendrix Experience The Black Keys and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is so palpable, it's impossible not to mention. And while the grooves that JSBE can really get you stomping your feet...the clean and polished production runs so antithetical to soul of the music, that it almost hurts to listen to. Also, it should be noted that Jon Spencer seems to have put all his skill points into guitar playing and none into his lyrics/delivery. Groups like Flat Duo Jets and even Velvet Underground to a certain extent create a better overall feel by scaling back the production to a minimalist style that fits the music being produced.

The second track was a short, hardcore-ish banger. There's some good moments on occasion but it's mostly annoying. I was never impressed by the little I had heard from them before and this certainly didn't change my mind. If I wanted to hear a punk/blues hybrid I'd go with Bob Log III. Now thats an artist who should've made this list. The people demand respect for Bob Log III!

I wanted to like this album, but then I hit play.

interminable and indistinguishable elementary garage rock. Each track is somehow less interesting and more sophomoric than the previous. How this guy continues to have a career amazes me. Perhaps people think he's "cool", but surely not "talented"?

Tja, iets te chaotisch en teveel geschreeuw.

Gave it a shot. Couldn't get through it. Chicken Dog was the sole redeeming song. Just frantic. Didn't add.

Volume? Check. Attitude? Check. Riffs? Sort of... Songs? Nope.

La segona estrella és per la bonica portada i pel reconeixement de fer un disc de blues punk, autenticant un mix de géneres tan estrambòtic. Malauradament, res de l'àlbum és memorable, ni tan sols conservable

Didn't like it. Sounded like an angry person riffing on his guitar. TBH not really a bluesy feel either. Was excited about getting to the end of the final track....

A very impressive garage band, but surprising they got a record deal and I’m even more surprised this album is on the list. Fun to listen to if you’re looking for some blues-rock to play in the background, but thousands of albums would need to disappear before it would come close to greatest albums territory. 2/5

Some blues! Should be interesting. Yeah, that's not blues. Not a fan. Lots of screaming and shouting and out of tune music......the brief bits I listened to.

There are a couple of albums on this list that I didn't finish, but this one might be closer to "Did Not Start". The album opens with a ridiculous wail, repeats it a few times with some added distortion, then manages to get even less pleasant to listen to. I made it two tracks, scanned a bit further into the album, then gave up.

Didn't enjoy it enough to get more than part of the way through.

Just bad. I mean, garage style, bluesy, noise. Listening to other selectins from john Spencer, much much better.

Awful, well at least the first half was, my ears were bleeding so much it filled the noise of the second half of the album

03/24/2022 Absolute chaos, and not in a good way! One of the worst things I've ever listened to, lol. Super aggressive and as unpolished as possible... I hate this so much. Never again, and wish I could erase evidence that I even streamed it in the first place.

Who puts this on by choice?!?!? Can't Stop is ok, if you can make it that far. But I want my 45 minutes back, so you get the dreaded 1. Kinda makes me want to find some actually good southern swagger. Better Than Ezra's Paper Empire coming up next.

Wow I hate it. The first 20 seconds grated badly and I hoped things would get better, but no. 😬 I kinda liked the music in Can’t Stop, but that’s it.

Too long, 79 minutes is too long. A mix between experimental, good, and absolute garbage songs. I can't justify really ever playing this album again, though there were some songs that were good. It's on that border between 1 & 2.
