Goodbye And HelloTim Buckley
Too folksy for me.
Good solid jazz listen.
Too folksy for me.
I tried. I really did. Way to experimental, poorly mixed, jumble of sound. I almost turned it off on track 1, pushed through and made it..but I would much rather listen to anything else.
Good album. Great? meh. 3 stars. While it contains some of their classics, Rolling Stones is pretty "cookie cutter."
Is Simon and Garfunkel that good where I've had to listen to 4-5 albums out of 1001?
I mean...yeah its In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida....but i don't have to like the album
Not a fan...at all. Very grating to my ears. Not sure on the appeal - I'll have to wiki Pere and understand where he was coming from.
I prefer wild times Green Day to political activism Green Day.
Funky as expected.
I bet that was a party.
Moody yet wispy.
Not really my cup of tea. Too accoustic and his voice was meh. Lyrics weren't bad.
im sure it was better in person.
Not a Rod Stewart hater really, but this album started as a cluster, didn't have a pace, and kinda went all over. Every Picture Tells A Story (1st track) showed its high quality 1971 production. The band must have been on drugs and the theme just followed through the rest of the album.
Drug infused "rock". Pretty standard late 60's- early 70's. Meh.
This is the White Stripes and Jack if he was jamming in the late 60's. Again - late 60's is a rough era for production but I'll give this a solid 3 for jazz infused rock and jam session.
Its a wall of noise coming for you. Prepare to be decimated.
Started strong with the first few beats....now I remember these guys!
Not familiar with them. Too ambient for me. Not sure why it's on a 1001 list honestly.
One hit wonder? In my book. Other than American Pie the album was forgettable.
Had no idea who Haircut 100 was before this. Not bad for early 80's UK New Wave.
Classic. Before they got terrible.
I had never heard of these guys. Based on album cover and 1967 - i figured jazz infused drug rock. I was correct. Not my typical jam but hit a groove. Very Janis + Doors + Grateful Dead.
One of my all time favorites.
Just good ol Bruce
It was OK. Started blending together quite a bit. There are better new wave early 80's bands IMO.
Country? Rock? Late 60's. Silly name? Mediocre love songs? Meh.
Hmm. ok. I guess his songwriting is good but nothing stands out to me.
Kinda surprised that this album doesn't have another stand out song. I guess its just a sweet dream.
Not for me
Went in with no expectations. I love instrumental jazz music and to make it better - its named back at the chicken shack.
More Bob Dylan? Ok I suppose.
I mean scooby snacks is great. The rest of the album was ok. I mean it was in stereo and high fidelity at least.
Better than i expected it to be.
eh. smooth operator.
eh. maybe im not in a good mood today?
I fail to see how this album is on a 1001 list. The band was all over the place and it sounded like they were trying to ride on the coat tails of the Beatles and other mid to late 60's bands. Pick a genre and stick with it. Maybe lay off the drugs when writing the lyrics. Even if it was written in satire it wasn't executed as a top 1001.
Not sure how it made 1001 but its an enjoyable soundtrack for sure!
Pretty solid for a 1990 album
Dig it. The deluxe album has quite the remix selection. 2hrs. whew.
Couldn't hack an hour of Dion. Just not my jam. Slow roll late 70's country/rock/gospel twang sound and he was kinda all over the place. Oh well.
I know this is a good one. Love some De La Soul.
It went medieval music halfway through. This era is so hit or miss.
eh, i felt they tried to hard. don't seem very rock/punk. maybe I'll just state "too edgy"
Meh. Overrated but popular.
I mean the Beatles were good...George on his own was mediocre. Loved the melodies and guitar but the songs got muddied together easily.
I'm not a folk fan. This was a hard listen and her voice really bothered me. I can see in '67 it may have been "par for the course" but I don't think it holds up to a 1001 list.
Always a fun sound.
It really is a beautiful record.
Better than I assumed
Love me some Faith No More. Broad range across albums and fun vocals. Anything with Mike Patton is gold. GOLD
Pretty standard 70's rock. Bit of a jam session.
I prefer Beck's more upbeat stuff. This was a solid record though and showed he could do just about any style of music. As an artist Beck is fantastic.
I tried to listen to it...started scanning songs and lost interest quickly. Why is this a 1001 album? Is it "what not to do?" Is it because Phil Spector and his "wall of sound" epicness? Whatever - others have done this schtick better.
Interesting. She has a broad variety of musical styles. R&B poetry about dicks.
The singles from this album were way overplayed back in the day and really made me despise Hole overall...now revisiting it this album was a solid. Still dislike Courtney as a celebrity.
Always a good listen.
Weird - I prefer Pet Sounds. This was...not my gig.
Never had heard of Leftfield prior to this. Sweet jams. I love 'ambient' electro.
This was fun. Never heard of them before.
Whew. Ok. I get it but at the same time it ain't for me.
I've never enjoyed Bono's swooning voice over the jam sessions of the Edge and the rest of the band. The Joshua Tree is a staple album for U2 but is just on my 'meh' list because U2.
This album was all over the place. Lyrics about kids being blown up to green aliens. Always a good beat and jammin guitar though.
Awesome sample heavy breakbeat techno dance album. Hadn't heard of them before and appreciated every moment.
I like other Byrds albums...this one was...ok.
Some of the late 60's and early 70's elude me. This is one of those bands. Captain Beefheart is...interesting. To each their own.
As noted in my prior U2 reviews - while the songs topics/lyrics are great and the band is phenomenal, I can't stand Bono and his voice...how long, how long must we listen to him sing...
Hmm. Entertaining. Never heard of em before.
Not for me. I tried hard to listen and review but lost focus each time.
I don't feel this aged well.
Not for me.
Not a huge Grateful Dead fan but this was enjoyable. Maybe I need to experience more of library.
Wasn't as good as I remember but still a solid album.
Not one of his best IMO
Better than I assumed. Never heard of them prior.
Did not get a chance to listen too (not listed on Spotify). Sorry Joanna. I did see her on the Muppet soundtrack so there is that.
One of the greats
Better than I thought it would be!
Crazy sampling album. No idea who Holger was prior to listening to this. I'll check out his other works.
Catchy album through and through.
Not my cup of tea. Not quite sure what the appeal is for a 1001 list.
weird. surreal. i kinda like it while also being creeped out.
Classic in the genre
I usually dig early 80's but something didn't click with me.
Based on title/band name - wasn't excited. Got through album. Was decent.
I couldn't find the exact album but listened to Nusrat's most popular on spotify. Alright!
Hah! Not many 80's punk/ska fun jammin albums made it on to this list. A nice combination of catchy songs and a cover or two. I dug it.
I usually don't like folksie/Americana stuff and would just be like "ugh, I have to listen to this?" Stephen Stills album was better than expected. While its no 4 star, its a solid "better than I expected" surprise. 3 stars!
Soft rock aint my thing.
