A couple of songs that really grabbed me. This is a really bluesy album. I liked it overall.
I like this album. It's really dreamy, and has a sense of urgency in some parts. The last track is so optimistic. Pretty inspirational.
The only tracks that are really grabbing me on this are: 1. I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night) 4. Onie 6. Sold To The Highest Bidder 11. Try Me On For Size The rest is sounding pretty generically psychedelic. It's good, but just not my cup of tea.
Outstanding album. I have never fully listened to this one before, and even the songs I wasn't fully familiar with were complete party anthems. What a classic!
First time listen to this album. I just love how weird the Talking Heads were. A lot of these songs were so oddball and irreverent. Tentative Decisions, Who Is It?, etc. And obviously Psycho Killer and Pulled Up are the classics on this one.
I have never heard of Gene Clark, nor this album, so I'm going into this completely green. With Tomorrow is making me sad. I hated that first song, but track 2 and the more upbeat track 3 (white light) is making me warm up to it. Not a fan of track 5. Tracks 2-4 were solid though. This reminds me so much of James Taylor. I like For A Spanish Guitar. Not a fan of 1975, and I'm soooo not a fan of Stand By Me covers. Meh. I like Ship Of The Lord. Overall, I think this one was okay. Fairly mellow, good for background listening. A couple of tracks made me the good kind of sad.
I love this album and it's in pretty regular rotation for me normally. Favorite songs: Something Against You, Broken Face, Where Is My Mind (of course!), Oh My Golly! and Vamos.
This album came out before I knew who Kendrick Lamar was, so I have never heard it. Upon first listen: Most of these tracks are great. Ones I didn't really care for: the remix of Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe, Compton, and kind of Sherane. I love the regular version of Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe. I heard Backseat Freestyle a while back and had no idea what album it came from, and didn't really know Kendrick Lamar back then. But I LOVED the vibe of the song. Still do. This track is great. Money Trees - I like this. Ya bish. m.A.A.d city is such an old school sounding track. Swimming Pools is a classic. So he uses this weird alien-ish voice in a couple of tracks, and I am so not a fan of it, but other than that, this album is solid.
Via Caliente was a jam. Out of the Ice has a great bassline. Overall, this album is great as background, or even as a movie soundtrack. I don't think I'd put it on as something I'd actively listen to. It's definitely not my cup of tea.
One thing I'm realizing, after having heard the hits from ABC for years, is that their basslines were KILLER. So good. Obviously, the hits are hits for a reason (The Look of Love, Poison Arrow), but there's some really good other stuff here (Really liked Show Me, Date Stamp and All Of My Heart). I would definitely listen to this one again.
