I really enjoyed it's a beautiful day. I wish I was dancing to it at a wedding though, a bit pissed screaming it in the faces of people I love.
I found it hard to get past the 'frenchness' of it and just listen to it as a piece of music, which I think is partly to do with not understanding the lyrics and partly because I don't often listen to music which isn't in English. I thought it was pleasant, but I think he might have been slagging off the english in the second to last song... 🤔
I'm glad Bob Dylan was on here because I've never really listened to him and I know he's kind of a big deal. Took me a while to get into it but once I did some of the lyrics really struck me.
I don't think I've really ever listened to Elliott Smith, but somehow I found it kind of nostalgic, it was pleasant I felt like I kind of drifted through the album
Now that I've taken the time to properly listen to this album I feel like I understand why Kanye West is thought of as epic, I definitely thought this album was epic. I found some of the lyrics difficult though which gave me some cognitive dissonance. But yeah glad I had this experience.
You know, I actually really enjoyed listening to this whilst cooking, it lifted my mood. I found the bits where it was suddenly high pitched, and where is got kind of experimental, were too much for me. It was a bit spaceshippy at points which was fun, and I like that theres a song called hugebaby 😆
I found it difficult to connect to this album at points. It made me feel mornfull and reflective though, which I think is the idea. I thought I didn't like 'Eulogy to Lenny Bruce' then right near the end I suddenly liked something about it. I think it's maybe the thing about his mother, I dunno.
I thought this album was really fun, I was instantly on board. It made me dance about and I felt a longing for gigs and clubs and accidentally knocking drinks out of strangers hands. There was one love song that was a bit slower which killed that vibe for me a bit. But I guess the variety of the album was kind of why I liked it so maybe I've gotta accept that as part of that.
Woooo had such a good time listening to this. I was briefly interrupted by James Cressey, flailing his arms and raving about dead foxes, but I didn't let this get in the way of Lauper's energy, wit, and general good vibes. I already liked 'girls...' but now I see that there's even more to her as an artist.
It is a crime that bangers and mash was not on the original record for this album, only on the extended version. Definitely my favourite track.
I listened to son of a preacher man 3 times. At first the others didn't really hit me, but it played through a second time and I felt it much more, thought there were some interesting themes, like the one about the thin walls.
Joni Mitchel's album was more varied than I expected, I really got into the atmosphere of her songs and the storytelling and that. I got more out of this than her Blue album. Listening to PJ Harvey while cleaning really helped with the cleaning. It had a lot of energy. Will listen again when I'm running or angry, or both.
Well that was a bit of fun! Some weird lyrics
I sort of bobbed along this album, it was pleasant, didn't know the song that apparently is really famous
I really enjoyed how most of the songs told a story, I like it when people do that. I liked the one about waiting for a partner to come out of prison, it was so jolly😅. I also liked the one about having two friends that are in love, there was a celebration and selflessness which I found touching. I listened to it twice and got more out of it the second time. I enjoyed the happy, light feel, but because of this I found that afterwards I was craving something with some darkness.
I always said 'I like the xx' but I suspected that maybe this was because it was trendy, really I didn't really listen to them much. Now I realize that I actually do like the xx! I really do!
I listened to this one without doing anything else and I really felt my emotions like rise and fall and change with the music, it was nice. The album was really varied and interesting I thought.
I like sex beat best, and not just because of the name
I like James Brown but I listened to this in the morning and I think I just wasn't in the right mood
