Sound quality up and down (live recording), but fantastic energy and JJ on form. Bonus points for MAD-like album cover.
Like it better now than when I was 16. A fair number of great songs, but difficult going through the 1h12m in one go.
Bleak, sombre... the list of near synonyms could go on. Almost no change of pace throughout the album. Perfect for the right mood and/or setting.
Late 60's in top form.
12 minutes plus songs? Background listening...
Nice, easy listening.
A pensive and slightly melancholic Boss.
A good reason to love the 90's.
Prior to 1001 albums I had not listened to the whole album, but it was still one of my favourite albums.
Hmm. OK late 60's, distorted guitars, dreamy, etc., but not really my cup of tea. The "behind the scenes" recordings from the sessions are probably the best bit.
Magic. B.B. and Lucille - what a pair!
Fantastic. Smooth and dreamy album. Honeyed, yet broken, sexy and wistful voice.
An insight into the cultural melting pot that is NY, and the music is a great mix of genres as well.
Hadn't listen to them a lot before. Great drumming, and good background for running or the gym.
OK country and western album. Some really good songs, but not a groundbreaking album in my view.
Still a great album.
Annoying first song, but then the album takes off. Special mention for driving drum beats. OK album, but many songs too long for my taste.
Some great songs, but listening to the whole album one can get an 80's synth overdose.
Ticks a lot of boxes.
Nice, honest punk, though not very "raw".
In my mind a concept album, and a great one a that. One of the best openings of an album, ever.
Corny? Yes. But who doesn't need nice and smooth music from time to time. Great singer, and an underrated drummer.
One of the great album of the naughties!
Some great songs, but the album lacks depth.
Fine. Not as amazing as in the nineties.
Like bottled essence of the '80s, which can be good or bad depending on one's mood.
Second Air album discovered thanks to 1001 albums. Lov'em.
Laid back, groovy, ticks a lot of boxes.
Folky punk? Punky folk? Who cares... just great.
New to me. Quite good, excepting"Don't".
Not an easy listen.
On of my all time favourites.
3 and half, really.
Great, but not my favourite Joni album.
Some of his best
Torn between 3 and 4, as there are some shit songs in there, but the good ones are so effing good...
