Great, it’s a classic. We listened while we read and enjoyed it. ***
Could die without hearing that and I wouldn’t mind. It really wasn’t for me. *
Again, not really my cup of tea but it was at least melodic. **
Very Woodstock. Really liked the last track but enjoyed the whole album ***
Well, that took me back and I knew I’d love it ! Especially Life’s what you Make It. ****
A real blast from the past so I was keen to listen to it. Best tracks; Smoke on the Water and Strange Kinda Woman. We were very enthusiastic Deep Purple fans in the 70s. ****
Just words set to the same fairly monotonous background. *
Very Verve ! I enjoyed it although I’m probably not getting the best quality sound on my iPad. ***
Brilliant ! I wasn’t expecting it to be so good. Some excellent Zumba tracks. I shall probably play it again while I’m cooking and have a dance along! I was reserving 4* for classics but this was an unexpected ****
I enjoyed this one. ***
A blast from the past. Sixties psychedelia. Enjoyable easy listening. ***
I thought I’d enjoy it more than I did but it was very typical of them. ***
Really enjoyed it. Some lovely guitar music. ***
Recognised the band name but wouldn’t have been able to name any tunes ! It was good. ***
It was good to listen to. I love the drums but I wouldn’t choose it to play again. ***
Fantastic ! Nearly went for 5*
Excellent, bluesy,gravelly voice. Better than I anticipated although he has a stellar reputation. ***
I’d forgotten how good they were. Enjoyed listening to it. Not quite a ****, but almost !
Interesting and different. I enjoyed it enough to listen twice ! ***
Brilliant ! Really enjoyed listening to this, gonna have to give it ****
Very soothing. Surprised at how many tracks I recognised. Listened to it twice and enjoyed it. ***
Well good to hear them again ! Enjoyed listening as always and some tracks are amazing but I still love Burn. I wondered what group would feature more than once. Happy that Deep Purple do considering they’re weren’t a chart band. ****
I wasn’t sure about this on first listen but by the second time I was really quite enjoying it ! ***
Oh brilliant ! A real 70s vibe and two tracks from our teenage years so very nostalgic. Really enjoyed the album ****
Do not like The Smiths and this hasn’t converted me. *
Didn’t really enjoy this like I thought I might. Juxtaposed was the best track. Wouldn’t listen again.
This was a good one. All classic songs and very mellow as we read our books before bed. ****
It was alright but I wouldn’t seek them out. ***
Was never a particular fan but it was good to hear those hits from back in the day. ***
Classic and identifiable James Brown. Alright but all the tracks start to sound the same after a while. ***
I don’t recall the band but I quite enjoyed the album. ***
Really enjoyed that, particularly How Can I Be Sure. Better than the David Cassidy version. Also Groovin. Will definitely listen again. ****
Haunting and much better than I expected. We both enjoyed listening to it. ***
Can’t fault it. It’s got to be another 4* if only for Black Knight. I remember dancing to this at school discos ! Who is compiling the lists to have 3 Purple albums already ?
Really enjoyed this. Can’t decide if it’s 3* or 4 ? ***
Really enjoyed listening to this ***
Nope, didn’t like that. Tuneless singing and similar sounding tracks. Wouldn’t listen again *
Good, really enjoyed listening to it. ***
Alright. A bit like she was trying too hard to be outrageous, but then maybe she had to to be recognised. Time after Time was lovely and I don’t mind hearing the odd song on the radio but probably wouldn’t seek her out. **
Not my usual taste but I enjoyed listening to this. The first track was worth 4* easily, loved it but overall a good 3***
Interesting. I enjoyed the music. ***
Loved The Kinks when I was young but I only really enjoyed a couple of these tracks, the rest was listenable therefore the obligatory 3***
Aaah Elvis, a beautiful man but this wasn’t from the era that I loved him from and it didn’t hold my interest enough to listen again. Is ** mean ?
Wasn’t my thing first time around but I quite enjoyed hearing it this time.
This was not the Beach Boys sound I was expecting because their hits were fun, upbeat songs which I love. However, having seen a biopic of Brian Wilson, I just think he was an amazing talent. Disney Girls was from the year I was born and was probably my favourite. *** or **** ?
Couple of good tracks but the rest were samey and not something I’d go back to **
By the second listen I was really starting to enjoy it. ***
It was alright, nothing more. **
Not as great asI was expecting ***
Really enjoyed it. ***
He has a lovely voice but not really my thing. ***
Fabulous Funk ! One of my favourite genres. Loved it! ***/* ?
Enjoyed this, was better than I expected. ***
R.E.M not my favourite band but the album had lots of classics on it so a solid ***
I loved her voice. Dad recognised her voice too and she was the vocalist with 5th Dimension; Wedding Bell Blues, great song ! A solid ***
A classic ! ***
Way better than I expected. ***
Not a fan but I enjoyed this album more than Automatic for the People. ***
There were some good tracks and I quite enjoyed listening to it. A boring ***
Not my cup of tea at all. **
Not enthralled **
I know it was Queen but I only really liked the commercial tracks. Consequently ***
I love some of their stuff but it’s only a ***
Brilliant ! ****
Why is the album cover so familiar ? I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. ***
I enjoyed this, probably not as much as I would have done back in the day. ***
Very mellow, enjoyable ***
It was listenable but not to my taste. Yesterday was a hIgh ***, this is a low ***
Quite enjoyed it, some tracks more than others. A steady ***
This is like the jazz album, OK background music but I can’t differentiate between the tracks. Not something I would seek out although I appreciate the musicianship. **
Not an artist that I like and every track sounded the same. ***
Classic Stones. A couple of great tracks but overall ***
Really quite enjoyed this and there were some lovely riffs in a couple of tracks but it’s not quite a 4* so it’s another ***
Didn’t like punk in the 70s, still don’t ! **
I really got into this. There were some great riffs and the tracks were quite variable. Consequently a rare ****
I liked the album for a change but I’m not sure I’d choose to listen to it again ***
Brilliant ! I don’t like everything he did but this was early classic Bowie. Particularly love Changes and Kooks. ****
It was listenable but not something I would choose. It was quite cosmic. ***
Not to my taste at all. **
I enjoyed it, but not as much as their live album. ***
Classic early, bluesy Stones. **** for the opening to Gimee Shelter !
This was not what I was expecting but I found it enjoyable. Quite folksy and a 60s vibe. ***
Started well, went downhill towards the middle but I really liked the last track. ***
Really enjoyed this. Just into ****
Listenable but I am not a Springsteen fan and this hasn’t changed my opinion. ***
Much as I enjoy Hawkwind it does get a bit same after a while. ***
Listenable but not really my cup if tea. ***
Quite mellow, not outstanding hence ***
Not as good as the previous album ***
Gave up on it ! *
Just frenetic jazz ! I’m afraid I can’t even be bothered to listen to that racket again ! *
I enjoyed this much more than I would have thought ! ***
Typical Joni Mitchell. Listenable but not overwhelming. ***
I don’t usually enjoy Radiohead but this wasn’t too bad. ***
This was a bit quirky as you’d expect from this artist. It was enjoyable but probably not something I’d voluntarily seek out.
I’m sure the lyrics are profound but I can’t get into the dirge. *
Strange album, each track with a different feel. It was alright. ***
Listened to this several times but it didn’t get any better. Parts were alright but it descended into a racket. I’ll give it a low *** but it could be ** !
Very enjoyable ***
Different, a solid ***
I really enjoyed most of this album.
You wouldn’t be able to hear it in an airport ! *
On first listen I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would.
Amazingly I quite liked the vibe and I’m not a fan of reggae type music usually and I definitely do not subscribe to the use of cannabis !!
Well I was excited about this one and it was a good start, less shouty but I’d rather have a greatest hits to score 4*. Consequently it’s a high 3* !
Brilliant ! Brought back memories of the time.I want to give it 5* but then I know it’ll go straight to the top so it’s a high ****
Really enjoyed this. Think they were an under rated band. ****
This wasn’t music, it was a monotone dirge *
Well this was a strange choice. Maybe it was the french language but it was quite sensual, which is what he’s famous for. Listenable certainly. ***
Not so depressing for Radiohead, quite upbeat in fact. Not bad ! ***
Very good, enjoyed listening to it. Has to have 4* for Freebird !
Really enjoyed this. ****
Quite enjoyed this. 3*
Better than expected ! 3*
Classic Cure. Really enjoyed it.......3* or 4* ?
Tuneful in places, out of key singing in others.Wouldn’t listen again. 2*
I enjoyed listening to it. ***
Some great classic Bowie tracks 4*
Quite enjoyed this 3*
Don’t know what to make of this. It was listenable, angry sounding in places.2/3* ?
Hearing tracks on the radio from The Divine Comedy is enough for me 3*
More my kinda thing ! 3/4 ?
Pleasant enough but unremarkable. 3*
Really enjoyed listening to this. It wasn’t all worthy of 4* but it was a high 3* consistently.
Typical Numan. It was alright, just not my thing. 3*
Not bad but punk is not my thing 3*
I really enjoyed listening it this !4*
Sadly didn’t get to hear it all. It was new and different at the time and good to hear again. ***
Mellow for a summers day but not outstanding. 3*
An album as old as me ! It wasn’t bad 3*
I just don’t get Dylan. 2*
Not really my type of music2*
Much more up my street ! Didn’t like every track but still worth 4*
I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did ! Brilliant !
It was alright, not what I’d usually choose. A bit shouty in parts. 2-3* ?
Mellow sound for the end of the week. 3*
Two fantastic tracks ; Strange Brew and Sunshine of Your Love. I love Cream but even so I can only give 4*
A classic. Got a bit repetitive but overall enjoyed it. 4*
This is classic week. Another classic album ! 4*
Quite enjoyed listening to this. 3*
It wasn’t bad but I just don’t like her which is a bit unfair really. 2*
OK but I wouldn’t seek it out except Fairy Tale of New York which you can’t avoid at a certain time of year! 2*
It was alright, quite upbeat and listenable. 3*
I didn’t get to listen to all of this but I enjoyed what I heard. 3*
Like a meditation album. Not unpleasant, in fact quite soothing but not outstanding either. 3*
Some classics there but I’m happy to wait to hear them every now and again on the radio. Nevertheless 4*
I possibly didn’t give this a fair chance but every time the vocals came in I felt annoyed. I don’t know how this is even in the list 1*
It was alright as background music but I wasn’t a massive fan. 3*
An excellent listen ! 4*
Country isn’t a genre I would seek out but I enjoyed listening to this 3*
A bit wacky but listenable. Sadly not a patch on “I Saw the Light in your Eyes” otherwise it would have scored higher
Brilliant ! 4*
Brings back memories so when I saw what it was I thought it was going to be 5* but it’s actually 4
Well that album did include my very favourite track by him ! Nevertheless, much as I enjoyed listening to it it only scores a 3*
I didn’t get to listen to all of this but what I heard was alright, 2*
Not sure what to make of it. Some tracks were really good. I liked his gravelly voice, other tracks I didn’t like so much. A have gh 3*
Not as bad as I’d expected, good in parts but still only 2*
Really liked this 4*
A welcome blast from the past. 3*
We listened to this a lot back in the day so I was looking forward to hearing it again. The title track and Jet were great but otherwise it wasn’t as great as I remember. 3*
It was alright. Not a genre I would seek out again so a low 3*
Fame was the outstanding track for me but I did enjoy the album so low 4*
Wasn’t as fan of two-tone originally but this was very listenable 3*
I appreciate his influence and skill but didn’t even enjoy it enough to listen again although I had the time. Consequently 2*
A couple of tracks were OK but this is really not the sort of music ( if you can call the rest of it music ) that appeals to me. 1*
Wasn’t so impressed on first listen but it sounded much better when Tom played it.
I admire her but I’m not into her music
Some classic songs but most better by other artists.
Didn’t have the time to listen properly to every track but I enjoyed what I heard which surprised me. 3*
Couldn’t get on with it 2*
I hadn’t heard any of the tracks before but it was classic Aerosmith and thoroughly enjoyable !
Brilliant album. I love Robert Plant’s voice. Nearly a 5* but definitely high 4*
This was quite melodic and country so good background music but I am not a Dylan fan so I wouldn’t listen again. 2*
Quite samey throughout, alright though 3*
DyLan still doesn’t do it for me ! 2*
Completely Duran ! Not a huge fan but it was listenable. 3*
Really enjoyed this one, especially the first side and the first track. 4*
Brilliant !! 4*
Dance Little Sister is a brilliant song guaranteed to make me dance. His other hits are good too and the rest of the album was mellow. He has a lovely, soulful voice. 4*
Sooooo soulful ! The horns on the final track were amazing so 4*
Really enjoyed this although I would have liked a second listen. High 3*
Liked it 3*
Just wasn’t getting this 1*
Unsophisticated and quite samey. I remember their hit but wouldn’t have been able to remember the band name! 2*
Typical Talking Heads sound. Quite enjoyable for a Sunday afternoon. 3*
Very nostalgic and 60s. Some really great tracks and I enjoyed this blast from a very distant past ! 4*
I’m not into Devo
I don’t know what to say except that he deserves to be in prison ! I didn’t listen to all the lyrics but some were disgraceful and I can’t understand why any women would contribute to his earnings by buying his “music” if you can call it that. I gave up !!
Lovely nostalgic listen. 3*
Enjoyed this much more than I thought I would and I would have liked the chance to listen again. A solid 3*
Classic Stones. I enjoyed listening to the album. 3*
Generally a more melodic rap and I really like Today is another Day but otherwise I got bored with being shouted at.....
Not my favourite genre by a long stretch but it was listenable.
Love the band but these were not their best songs. However was really into it by second listen so 4*
I love the name but it was the sort of album where the racks were indistinguishable from each other. Easy listening, alright
An absolute classic. 4*
It was alright although I wouldn’t seek it out. 3*
Listenable........but I would seek out again 3*
This came as a complete surprise and I really enjoyed it ! 4*
Mellow sounds and I like her voice. Quite enjoyed it. 3*
Bluesy easy listening was alright. 3*
Probably the best album so far! I loved it !
This was alright. I’m not a massive Blur fan. 3*
It was exactly what I’d expect from the band and it was listenable but not really my thing. 2*
I actually really enjoyed this on second listen. Not enough for a 4 maybe but it was close.
Better than I was expecting. She had a lovely voice. 3*
I love Fleetwood Mac but the outstanding tracks were their hits, Sara & the title track. The rest was alright so high 3*, not quite 4*
Really enjoyed it......3/4* ?
I just don’t get him ! 1*
The Who are not my favourite group by any means. Some of their classic tracks are brilliant but otherwise they’re just alright.
I really enjoyed this so I think it ought to get a 4*
It was alright mostly although didn’t think much of the singer’s voice in some of the tracks. 3*
Loved this 4*
There were two tracks I enjoyed but as for the rest, no thanks !
Enjoyed listening but don’t need to hear it again as it’s “old” 2*
Two good tracks but then it starts to sound a bit the same.3*
It was good ! 3*
Didn’t get to listen to the whole album but I liked what I heard. Consequently 3*
It was pure Cure which I enjoyed 3*
Clearly The Undertones. Such a distinctive vocal. Was alright but I don’t need to hear again. 3*
I listened to some of this album. It was identifiably the Beatie Boys but I’m not sure I’d need to listen to anymore because it starts to sound the same. 2*
Some excellent classic tracks ! 4*
Wasn’t as bad as I feared, quite enjoyable really but I wouldn’t usually go for this genre. Nevertheless, it helped me clean the floor so 3*
I was excited about this .......before I listened to it, then I was inevitably disappointed. 2*
Didn’t get to listen to the entire album but what I heard was enjoyable. Not sure I’d seek it out though.
It’s hard, even for me, to realise the importance of the Beatles at the time. They were my favourite group from age 5 to about 17. This isn’t their best music but without this they wouldn’t have done what they did. It has to be 4*
Recognisable and enjoyable for the most part.3*
Wacky ENO ! It was alright, mostly, but I’m not a fan so only 2* I think
One track was stand out and although I like some Stevie Wonder this was underwhelming so sadly high 2*
Fabulous ! Nan’s favourite album and for that reason and all the associated memories as well as the great tracks 5*
I enjoyed this although it seemed very long.
Quite enjoyed what I heard 3*
Very listenable but I too am in danger of giving everything 3*
This was surprisingly alright, 3*
Really has the 60s vibe and I liked the Yardbirds growing up. I love the 2nd track but is it good enough for 4* ?
A blast from the past with the hits which were alright but I think I prefer the Style Council !
Quite clearly Joni Mitchell and good as background music. She’s very talented but I wouldn’t want to listen to her exclusively. Can’t criticise so 3*
