Totally dig the music and lyrics, vocals are kinda weird. But I guess that's the Talking Head for you. Might be interesting to have an all instrumental version of this album. Got better in later songs. Really enjoyed the unfinished outtakes in the remastered version.
Feels like a generic big band album. Not terrible, not outstanding. The Banana Split song is kinda weird...
Reminds me of high school. Didn't listen to a lot of Elliott Smith, but I can hear the similarities in the bands I did listen too; they obviously had been influenced by him. I think I like his personal sound better now than back in 2000. A good album, and an easy listen, for a dreary day.
Funk nice and early in the morning! It's crazy to think about how many of these songs I know, but never knew it was this band. Overall, the original band of funk doing its original funk thing.
Wow, that was a lot of guitar. Could tell that this was early on and they were still trying to figure out this whole metal sound. Good basics, but needed more depth. Not my jam, but it wasn't terrible.
Pretty good, actually. Definitely can see the influence on other British punk bands that came later.
Takes me back to Hot Topic in the early 2000s, even though it's 12 years after the album came out. Getting a bit of a Primus vibe from the end of the album. Interesting that Where Is My Mind? sounds nothing like the rest of the album. That's the only really outstanding song.
Really, really enjoyed this album. So easy to listen to and I honestly can't believe it came out in 1970! Love the country/Americana/blues vibe. Favorite album so far.
Good old school R&B. Can hear similarities to Sade and Erika Badhu. Nice background music; especially in a Spotify Playlist called Kitchen Swagger.
Love the lyrics and the story telling, not a huge fan of the music. But not bad!
So good. So so good. I had heard almost every song as "singles", but in the context of an album, it makes it so much better!
Pretty damn good. High energy, good beats. 100% reminds me of the early punk days.
High school Dani would have loved this band. Kinda punk, emo, but great guitar and melodies; the change in tempo, even going to 2/3 (which very much reminds me of Brand New). I can't put my finger on who was influenced by this band, but I think a lot of my formative music years had been listening to these guys. Maybe a bit of Brand New, Jimmy Eat World, Nirvana, Radiohead...
I know the band sounded familiar, but I couldn't place where. It was the first song The Shining, that I remembered! Rest of the album is really good, great background working music.
Pretty decent live. I never got it Nirvana as much as I wanted to. But can still appreciate their influence on the grunge scene
Knew all the songs, didn't know they all came from one album! Still not a fan, but good to hear in context.
Good old Green Day. Wasn't a fan back then, not a huge fan now.
The lyrics and singing were eh. But the instrumentals were spot on. Was never a big fan of Morrissey.
Original punk! Not too bad. It must have been mind blowing to hear this when it first came out, such a different sound than what was going on at the time.
Never my cup of tea. Listened out of duty to the project.
Such a wonderful change of pace. Really lovely to listen to while doing school work.
Really interesting to hear these songs in an album context, and not just random singles. Not a bad way to start a Friday.
