Nah. Some tunes were ok, but not my bag baby!
Yo… yo… yo… yo… motherfunsters! Nah. Not for me.
Class album. Play it loud!
Not too bad. Would listen if it was on.
Pretty good first half. Went downhill slightly towards the end
Pretty good. What the Fleet Foxes are trying to sound like on some tracks.
Not bad. Would listen again if it was on.
Not bad. Instrumental covers with sitar instead of voice
Pretty good. I know all the songs.
Not bad. A few good tunes on there
Ok. Some good tunes, but singing puts me off
Not bad. Some good tunes
Great album. Each song needs a little bit to get going but all worth it
No thanks. Pretty poor all the way through
Cross between the cramps and secret affair! Not bad.
Good album. Would definitely listen to again

Some good tracks and memories
Nice blues album
Not my cup of tea

A bit Johnny Cash but not as good
Not bad. I’d listen again.
Some really good tracks
Some great tunes. Usual Radiohead album
Not too bad.

Some good tracks. Typical Foo Fighters
Ok I guess
Not my cup of tea
Some decent tunes on here.
Better than I thought it would be.
Used to be great, but hasn’t aged that well.
Not great. Just what you’d expect.
Some good tunes, but some bonkers warbling later on.
Standard hip hop. Nothing special
Some good tunes
Exactly what you expect
Husky random crappy tunes
Standard Bruce fodder. No standout tracks

Deep voice nonsense

One decent song, but not terrible
60s psych rock standard
“Whacky” orchestra tunes

Scratch scratch… scratch music
Interesting mix of rock and classical
Not my kind of thing
Great blues album
Some decent tunes
Ok I guess.
On in the background
Not a great Beatles album
It was ok I guess.
Yo… yo… yo… yo… motherfunsters! Nah. Not for me.
Class album. Play it loud!
Never liked it at the time and still the same. Lot of fuss over nothing
Awfully predictable. 🤟🏻
Crap. Know what I’m saying’? Yo!
Not bad. Easy listening background chill out.
Not bad. Probably wouldn’t put it on, but wouldn’t necessarily turn it off either.
Love it! Takes me back to Uni days and seeing them live.
Haven’t heard this one before, but some good tunes.
A couple of decent tracks, but a bit repetitive. The low 3, giving them the benefit of doubt.
Yeee-haaarrrr!! Not really my cotton pick in’ style o’ music y’hear?
Skipped through it. All pretty dull to be honest.
An all time classic. Still as good as it used to be.
A grower and a good cover of Just Like Heaven.
Surprisingly not as bad as I thought it would be.
Some quality tunes on this album.
What the funk? Not great.
Some half decent tracks as well as the obvious ones
Ok. Dislike Yellow with a passion, but some others are redeeming.
Not my thang at all. Honky tonk music
Not that great to be honest
Good album with some great tracks
Never heard of her before but this was pretty good
Much better than I thought it was going to be
Pretty good in places
Some good tracks
Not great. Wouldn’t bother listening again
Still some good tracks
Not bad. Worth another listen
Ended up getting bored. Not the worst but won’t listen again
They’ve done better albums than this one
Not bad. Would listen again
Decent album and would definitely listen again
It’s Bad, really really Bad!
Ok, but probably wouldn’t bother with again.
A lot better than I thought I’d be
Not too bad. Wouldn’t turn it off, but probably wouldn’t turn it in either
Some classic tunes
A couple of ok tracks
Awful cheesy sing along chorus “rock”.
Not bad to have on in the background
It’s ok. Not as bad as I thought
It was ok. Wouldn’t necessarily turn it off.
Oooh, cheeky chappy laddie etc. Bit boring.
Not too bad. Not one of her best in my opinion
Average at best
Standard 80s soul
Liked it a lot more than I thought. A couple of stand out tracks. Mr. Goodbar Murdergram
It was ok. Background music really. Perfectly ok, but nothing that stands out.
Class. Love every track. Always have.
Not bad. I must be getting old.
It was ok. Nothing special, but no doubt great at the time.
With 32 tracks I would have said he was gaming the Spotify system but this predates Spotify. Rollercoaster album with some good tunes and a couple of dire ones too. Overall pretty good though
Telltale sounds of the 80s. Not my cup of tea at all, but a couple of standout tracks that chatted well
Pretty good album
Never really understood the fuss. All sounds so tinny.
Not bad. Easy listening funk
Decent Springsteen offering
I still don’t get it.
It’s great that you can put records together on your own in your bedroom these days, but not everyone’s gonna like it.
Some really great tracks, but some average ones too
Liked it a lot more at the time, but still a good album
Surprised by this. Really nice and mellow tunes
Decent album but I’ve never been a big fan
69 tracks! I got bored after 5 or 6.
Shouty shouty repetitive bobbins! I sound like an old got writing this, but I felt the same when it was released.
Brilliant! Can’t fault any of the tracks. One of the best albums ever.
Really great album.
Almost. 4.5 out of 5. Great memories of seeing them tour this album.
Nothing much against it, but not my cup of tea. I like some Sergio Mendez, but this wasn’t quite up to that level.
Decent album. Bloody loud live!
Not bad at all. Worth another listen although there were some I don’t like. Overall positive.
Not something I’d listen to again. Not particularly bad, but nothing that stands out.
Not my thing at all. I thought I’d never make it as a singer because my voice was bad. After listening to this I’m not so sure. 🤣
Not bad, but not great either. Probably wouldn’t turn It off.
Nah. Some tunes were ok, but not my bag baby!
Not great imho. Not bad, but just not something I’d want to listen to.
Some classic tracks from my youth on here. Always worth a listen even though some tracks take it down slightly from a 5.
My house mate used to play this all the time while at Uni. It’s ok, but not something I’d put on by choice
Great album. Reminds me of working nights at a TV studio and playing that in the background while working.
Great album. Nicely different from the others, but still classically Led Zep.
Not really listened to this one before and really enjoyed it. Early punk vibes.
Pretty good at what it is. Not something I’d really go for though. I was surprised it was 1978. I’d have thought it was earlier.
Not bad at all for some Latin beats.
Not totally bad, but goes a bit random jazz on you during most tracks, so not my bag baby!
Undoubtably talented, but just not my thing at all.
Background music to some high class department store. Easy listening, but not cream muzak for lifts. Not my thing though.
Not particularly bad. Just pretty ordinary.
Another great album by Led Zep. A double album that doesn’t drop off at any point.
Just how you’d expect a Zombies album to sound. Pop Psychedelic 60s.
A classic. Teenage angst listening at its finest.
You feel a bit guilty liking this album after the revelations of his private life, but I still think it stands up as one of the best pop albums ever due to its stand out tracks. Shame there are a couple that I skip over every time though
Ok. I wouldn’t put it on though.
Straight, middle of the road Jazz. Not for me at all.
Jazzy funky Afro beat music. Perfectly ok, but I wouldn’t listen to it. Stand out tracks are No Shame and Live For Today
Love this album. Great at the time and still sounds great.
First half was Billy at his best, rough and raw. Second half let it down a bit.
Wow. Loved this. Obvious comparisons with Belle & Sebastian, but wished I’d found this a long time ago. Play on repeat!
Sounds like the worst bits of Suicide and Death from Above combined. I like both of those, but this isn’t great.
Interesting that the album that supposedly started flower power and the hippy revolution and influenced so many, now sounds tame by comparison to many albums that came after of a similar type. I usually like this genre, but didn’t particularly like this one. Too middle of the road for me.
Yeuch! Eew! R&B & that’s all I need to say.
As you’d expect from Paul Simon. Some decent tracks, but most is middle of the road stuff. Definitely dated by the 80s sound.
Sunday afternoon R&B for people who don’t want to listen to anything outside their comfort zone. Hypocritical perhaps, but meh!
Not their best album, but deserves 4/5 just for ‘A Forest’.
Not one of their best but a decent album anyway.
Country fair. Not something I’d bother listening to, but don’t actively hate it.
Brazilian 60s pop. Not bad really.
A couple of good stand out tunes - Setting Sun and Where Do I Begin. Prefer some of their later albums to this one.
An album mostly of collaborations, with most of them sounding how you think they would given who he’s collaborating with on that track. Not his best.
It was ok. What you’d expect really. I prefer their later stuff.
Dear God no.
Not as awful as I thought it would be. Still not a keeper though.
My housemate used to listen to this while we were at Uni. Never really got into it, but I’ve heard worse.
Not bad at all. Worth a deeper dive into their other albums.
Not too bad. Some good tunes worth another listen.
Not bad, but not great. The two obvious stand out tracks, but the rest are so-so
Listen to this a lot when it was released. Some brilliant tracks but one or two that stop it being a full 5.
Listened to it and then completely forgot about it. So obviously wasn’t so bad that I noticed, but also not good either
Instantly forgettable average rock.
Thought I wouldn’t like this but it wasn’t bad at all. Decent rap with overtones of Disposable Heroes.
Shmm-bop-a-dee-do-wap-a-pa-dee-do-be-daa. Amusing part in it when the song goes wrong and not bad overall, but I’ll probably never listen to it again.
Love this album. Absolute classic.
Not bad at all really. Have heard it before but never really paid attention. However, it’s nothing more than average really imho.
The strings in the background of Wonderwall make it a classic track, but the rest just sounds like Liam whinging and wining on about something or other.
Decent album with some memorable tunes. Don’t think I’d skip any either.
Just what you’d expect. Probably amazing at the time.
Nothing against them, but seems middle of the road rock. Not bad though and would listen again. I already own another of their albums
Who knew Street Life was a 9 minute epic. Decent album overall.
A bit of jazz with a bit of swing. Goes off into free form sometimes which doesn’t go well with my brain. My brain likes patterns.
Some really good tracks on here, particularly Hurt. I love the original and this cover is just as good. Some lame duffers later on, but pretty good overall.
Religious nonsense with bad country music
Give it an average three because the link didn’t work and I couldn’t find it.
Some great tracks. Great lyrics as ever from Nick Cave. Some tracks reminded me of early Pogues - not a bad thing at all.
Some half decent songs, but not the best by their own standards.
Pretty good. Not quite sure what I was expecting really, but quite liked it and worth another listen.
Lovely album. One for a nice sunny day.
Love this album for start to finish. Bought it for my dad when I was a kid and managed to record it to tape before his birthday, but had to remember not to play it in front of him until after his birthday. Great tunes right the way through. Highly polished and well produced.
Not bad. Easy listening background. It was ok and harmless, but not something I’d actively listen to.
Not bad. Definitely worth another listen.
I’ve listened to a few of his albums and I reach the same conclusion each time. There are a couple of really good tracks and I really want to like the rest, but he disappears into self indulgent songs that aren’t really for anyone but himself. Started out a possible 4 but ended up a low 3. If it carried on it how it was going it would have been a 2.
It was ok. I’ve heard a hell of a lot worse, but no really memorable tracks.
Not bad. Never really listened to Roxy Music much before. Would listen again, but wouldn’t buy it.
Average rapping with average R&B. Instantly forgettable.
Old country. Not my genre at all. Sorry.
Their first album as The Who and the music is more mod-pop, before they started sounding a little edgier. I prefer their later albums towards the end of the 60s and onwards, but this still has some good tracks
Standard Bruce Springsteen in my opinion. Always a couple of good tracks, some not, the rest just average.
Ok as background music, but nothing that stands out.
It’s a grower. Gets better as it goes on as well, so I guess I prefer The Lyre of Orpheus more than Abattoir Blues Tunes are what you’d expect from Nick Cave. Enjoyed it.
The best Dylan album I’ve heard so far, but that’s not many at all. A couple of decent tracks and not the obvious ones.
Country isn’t my thing at all, but this was pretty mellow and easy going. A bit repetitive imho.
Not bad really. Not something I’d listen to generally, but listened all the way through and was impressed.
Pretty much what you’d expect from 80s Malcolm McLaren. He led the way on many ways, but his own offerings were never as good as the work of others he produced. It’s an ok album to have on in the background, but doesn’t grab your attention in any way.
Not my type of thing and just got really bored by the end. Who knew the original ‘To Make You Feel My Love’ was so bad.
Not bad at all. Some really popular tunes that stand out, but the overall production on their songs always seems a bit tinny.
Not bad. Music is nice and mellow. Lyrical structure is quite formulaic throughout, rso can be a little repetitive, but it’s ok overall.
Listened to it all the way through, but have pretty much forgotten about it already. Not up to much in that case
Better than I thought it was going to be. Electronics influence is good.
This was probably the best album in their progression towards more mellow tunes. At the time it was probably an album by a traditionally grunge band that your parents wouldn’t mind you putting on. Loved it at the time and still remember all the words.
Not bad actually. Didn’t think I’d like it, but it was pretty decent and probably a grower.
Quite Ramonesy. Not a suprise given the year it was released. Some good tracks, but too many throw away ones for me
It’s not offensive or anything, but not my cup of tea.
Not sure why this one is on the list. Not even the best Fall album. I’ve a love/hate relationship with The Fall. They could make some good tunes, but Mark could be a total arse at times. RIP fella.
Just ok really. Not something I’d put on, but wouldn’t necessarily turn it off either.
An old favourite. Love their lyrics and simple sounding, but complex melodies. A great album.
Loads of instantly forgettable 2 minute offerings. Not worth your time really. I’ve heard worse music so gains an extra star for that reason only.
Some really good tunes and some fillers. I liked them at the time, but I don’t think they ever did an album full of great tunes.
Not awful by any means, but not my thing at all.
Great album. Some really addictive beats. Some Beastie albums are hit and miss for me, but this is a classic.
I love Kraftwerk, but some of this isn’t their best, some of it is.
Pretty average really. Middle of the road rock soon to be included on every ‘driving’ compilation
Some good standout tracks. One of his better albums in my opinion, but where Bowie is concerned I’ve never really been able to get into his music fully. There’s always a good track or two on each album, but the rest just doesn’t grab me.
Some great tracks on here. Ahead of their time and way better than their rock beginnings.
They’re all undoubtedly talented musicians, but this just isn’t for me boo bop shada boo wop pop pop pe do. At least this is musical and unlike some feral cats have been chucked in the school music room like some jazz. Apologies jazz fans.
Was ok at the time, but sounds really dated now, particularly lyrically.
Not really my sort of thing at all, but no bad as far as this genre goes.
Sounds a bit dated now. A couple of tracks were fresh and ok at the time. Just sounds a bit juvenile these days.
Not my genre at all. Skipped through the tracks rather than listened and nothing stood out at all. Everything sounded pretty much the same, but that’s probably just me not getting on with this type of music
I remember when this album came out and Come on Eileen was number 1 and on tv all the time. I found it really annoying at the time and the rest of the album isn’t a lot better.
I think that the way you rate an album sometimes has outside influences. For instance last night I hardly got any sleep at all, however this pile of trash would still receive less than one star had I slept for a week. Over 2 hours of garbage. No thanks and never again.
Quite a surprise. Pretty good album all told. Vocally it reminded me of The Swans. Will listen again.
It was ok. I’ve heard a lot worse, but it sounds a bit dated now.
Schmoov futhermucker. Never been my thang.
Really got into the Chilli Peppers around the time of Mothers Milk. This was another good album of a bit more mainstream. Awesome live band.
Used to listen to this in school, mainly for the swearing, but it’s always been a good album. Some great tracks.
Surprised by this. Didn’t know what to expect at all, but pleasantly surprised and will definitely listen again.
Basically it’s covers with Bongos in the background and brass covering the vocals. It’s ok. They’ve picked some decent tunes to cover, but it gets a bit dull after a while.
Very middle of the road. Not something I’d listen to again and very dated by the 80s sound.
Pretty middle of the road. Not bad, but not really gripping either. Some decent melodies at times.
Obviously a couple of cracking tracks on here. The rest is pretty good too, only one or two below average. All the usual Prince style that you’d expect that makes it obviously him.
Another solid Nick Cave album. I’ve not recently listened to many until recently and they’re all decent.
Didn’t really listen to it all the way through because a Uni friend played it constantly when it came out. Middle of the road, easily listening soul in my opinion. Not something I want to listen to.
A monster album with aggressive base and aggressive lyrics in the most part from Keith (RIP). Listen loud!
Ooh, I’m a gangsta futha mucker! Yawn.
Found it all a bit repetitive and dull. Not my kind of thing though, granted.
Not bad, some good tunes, but not great. Would listen again.
It’s not bad, but as at the time, it just made me want to listen to the Human League albums that were out at the same time or before this. They were ok, but others did it better. As an aside, when they were younger lead singer Glenn Gregory reminded me of Gary Busey.
Pretty good. I’d never heard of them before, but they have that sound that I was sure I had heard before. Definitely will listen again.
Really enjoyed this. Mellow and really tuneful. Definitely worth another listen.
Bought this when it came out when I was 10 and it’s been one of my favourites all my life. The best Jam album as well. Yes there are a couple of well known hits on the album, but all the others are just as good, if not better. Listen loud!
Great idea and two or three great tracks, but it doesn’t hold up with some others.
Pretty decent album with some great tracks. Some really good riffs, but I always think their albums are not quite there.
Awful 80s rock bilge. Girls, drink, drugs etc etc. *yawn* Not even good musically either. Without Tyler’s vocal style it could be any one of hundreds of bands.
Not bad, but not really getting any emotions from it either. Fairly middle of the road.
Decent album, but why oh why end it with that pants version of Broadway? Hope it wasn’t on the original release. One star off for that.
Not bad. A bit whacky, but with Zappa at the helm why not.
This was the first album I bought, on cassette, aged 10. Loved it at the time and it’s still a classic. Favourites then and now are Ant Invasion, Killer In The Home and The Human Beings
Richard III and Sun Hits the Sky are standout tracks. Unfortunately there are some forgettable ones to which make it average on the whole.
Middle of the road and quite forgettable to be honest. Sounds in places like Fleet Foxes, but only briefly.
Some good tunes, but some forgettable as well. I forgot it was on by the time I got to the end of the album. Not a stinker though by any means.
Couldn’t listen, it’s not available on Spotify so giving a middle 3
This isn’t my kind of music at all. At the time I absolutely hated it, but now I can appreciated Boy George’s voice, however it’s still not something I’d want to listen to.
This was their best album before they went bobbins with e’s are good etc. Goes on a bit long, but some decent tunes.
Not bad really. Some decent chilled out tunes.
Some good tracks and a good sound overall, but I’ve never thought it was a banger.
How very weird to get this album with the first song being “The Queen Is Dead” today of all days. I used to really despise The Smiths when they were in their pomp. I was a goth at the time so they were too popular and middle of the road for me at the time. They have grown on me over the years though. I’ve grown to like them more and more as Morrisey has turned more and more into a right wing lunatic. All in all a good album with some cracking tunes.
Where to start? Didn’t like this at the time and I think it’s got worse over time. Sounds like a poor man’s attempt at David Holmes style soundtrack music (sorry Norman). It’s a no from me.
Always a 5 for me. Went to see them on this tour. I usually like things a bit different, but have consistently liked U2 up to and including this album. It was massive! Influenced so much in music at the time and still a seminal album
Not sure who came first, but reminds me of De La Soul. Not something I would normally listen to, but this is decent enough.
Not bad at all. Nice and easy listening. Would listen again.
Love this album. Great folk music at its best. Like S&G at their best.
It was ok. Brazilian samba, bossa nova etc. trying to emulate and indeed covering Sergio Mendez, but not as good imho.
Some classics on here. Have love will travel being the best (check out Crazyhead’s version). A decent album with one too many woooaaaaaaooowwwws
Good disco album with nice riffs, but could do without the remixes at the end.
Bought this the day it came out and was amazed at how good it was. Played it to death and saw them in this tour. Got the killing joke riff in Come As You Are as soon as I heard it. Great album
Can’t play this on Spotify. Given average score.
Used to listen to this on my Walkman at college during lunch time playing the 1942 arcade machine in the leisure centre across the road. Good times. A cracking album btw. One that’s often mimicked, but rarely bettered.
Fairly forgettable to be honest. Not bad particularly, but nothing stands out.
Don’t like it at the timeand it’s certainly not aged well. Middle or the road bilge that’s all sounds the same. Avoid.
Some decent tracks, but not amazing.
I can see his influence on so many artists, but they just seem to do it better. Led Zep for instance. Decent album and obviously talented, but I don’t quite like his voice and feel it went on a bit too long. There are also some tracks that are really self indulgent.
I fell in love with MBV after hearing one of their earlier tracks, Strawberry Wine, on a free NME cassette (look it up!). Saw them live in the late 80s and they were awesome. This was the pinnacle album wise, but there are better EPs out there. You Made Me Realise has an amazing B-side. Sometimes is the highlight for me, but I could listen to this over and over.
Teen indie pop. Decent enough for what it is, but not something I’d really listen to.
Some decent tunes and some not so decent. Some not really my thing at all. A very varied album and some talent on show, just not really something I’d put on.
Apologies to the aficionados, but once you’ve heard the first track you’ve heard them all. I don’t think an algorithm to generate new Frank Sinatra songs would be very complex at all.
Some things just don’t age very well.
Not bad, but kind of forgot I was listening to it.
Decent album, but not their best by a long way.
It’s different, and some good tunes, but wears a bit thin after a while
Not bad, but very predictable.
Not my thing at all, but base sounds good.
Not his best. Mostly dodgy balads.
Not bad. Now you know what they ended up doing you can tell listening to this that there were better things to come.
