Morrissey can suck my ass
Why is this so fucking long. It's okay I guess, but I can't sit through over an hour and 20 tracks of it
Kinda boring, can't remember a single thing about it
It's pretty bad. It fits every cheesy 90s stereotype, even the guy in the background whispering *MC* and *Break it down*. The only redeeming factor is it gave me a laugh
He's a good singer and the instrumentals are decent but the live element of this is just much too irritating. Theres so much background sceaming and talking that I just cant enjoy it
Some great tracks, wasn't feeling the album as a whole. But it's hard to rate an album after one day.. Rating would probably increase with time
Couldn't get into this one... As much as I enjoy metal I find a lot of Metallica kinda dull
Actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would, some good instrumentals. Vocals can get grating though and eileen is very overplayed
Kinda enjoyed it, no strong opinions on this one. My mum likes it
Surprised I haven't heard of the band before, great album. Better than a lot of more popular rock/pysch rock from the 60s that's more famous imo
Couldn't get into it at all on first listen. Gave it another go and it seemed alright, but still didn't seem that interesting. I was expecting something a lot edgier from the name/album art so I was kinda dissappointed when it sounded kinda generic.
The first album that's come up on this website so far that I already know and really like. Classic imo, grace is my favourite track. Least favourite probably Hallelujah but that's just because we had to sing it in secondary school once and that ruined it
Just cos an album is influential doesn't mean its entertaining to listen to.
Some nice techno house, not much else to say
Really enjoyed this one. Second half of the album falls off a little but still pretty solid album. Lots of vocal looping, which can be pretty tiresome but its done well here. I give it a Certified Bop™
Classic alert! They have a pretty unique sound as a band, only problem I have with them is they never really stray from this sound. IMO this is the only portishead album you really need to listen to, the others all sound the same but worse
Just kinda dull.
Me and my husband enjoyed listened to this on our verandah with a bottle of bubbly for out 20th wedding anniversary! Great music as always thanks Joan!
Some nice jazz
It's impressive that it came out in the 70s, I listen to a lot of more recent punk that it was influential over. Would I listen to it on its own merit? Probably not often.. Influential but I'd rather listen to more recent punk
Indie fluff, not sure why its on the list. Sounds like a worse version of the xx, which is fitting since they were nominated for the mercury prize but lost to the xx
Good fun, only criticism is the tracks can get somewhat samey. *and I hope ya like jammin' too*
Some nice Stevie. A little cheesy in places but some great tracks, not my favourite album of his but some others are bound to be on this list
Couldn't get into this one yesterday, maybe on a different day.. They have quite a unique sound, not a fan of 'our house' though
Some good bops, better than metallica
Kinda fun. Was written as a soundtrack originally which makes sense, sounds like a little story
Nothing really stuck with me but some good tunes
Had the same problem as the other prince album: got 2 tracks in and really wasnt feeling it. Isnt he supposed to be a guitar player? He doesnt seem to play it at all
Enjoyed this one, I'd give it a 3.5. Dunno if I'd come back to it much but still. Also what kind of a genre name is 'new wave'? What's the deal with just putting 'core' and 'wave' after random words?
4.5/5. I'm surprised I enjoyed this one so much, it's not the kind of genre I usually listen to. Everything just works for me, fav tracks: deacon blues/peg
Kinda just sounded like a worse version of yesterday's Steely Dan. More interestingly, what are the chances of there being two consecutive albums with the same artist? Sounds like a good probability problem
Reggae wallpaper. The only criticism I have of this list so far is that there are a lot of repeats from the same artist. Feels like they could include more variety
I think it's another of those influential albums that I probably wouldn't listen to given the choice
3.5/5. Some nice chill lo-fi sounding tracks, enjoyed a lot of this. Falls off a bit at the end imo, least fave track the murder mystery.
Good fun, I'm surprised their were so few vocals, every other Zappa album I've heard has them. I still prefer some later Zappa but I enjoyed this, looking forward to there being more Zappa on this list, I've only listened to a few of his but they're great
Made it a few tracks in before having to stop... I dont know what mood I'd have to be in to enjoy this
Its supposed to be punk but it just felt lifeless to me. Wailing over bland guitars
Would probably get a 4 without the nostalgia factor. Used to listen to this one a lot when I was younger, I think it has a great mix of different tracks and genres: fav tracks crying and love dog.
Some okay instrumentals, but the whole thing doesn't work for me. The vocals and guitar both sound strangely out of tune, and it makes the whole thing pretty hard to listen to
I'm always torn on the doors. They have some great songs, good riffs and vocals sometimes, and other times their songs just drag on for seven minutes going nowhere, with endless keyboard solos. This is a 48 minute album but it has enough material for a killer 20 minute ep.
Good fun, but nothing special. I thought Alice Cooper was more metal but this was almost glam rock
Country gives me a headache
Not bad but kinda boring. Like a poor man's Beatles
Got a lot of media coverage on release, but I think its justified. Only criticism is it has some weak tracks and drags on a little in places. Fav tracks: first two and these walls
Was okay as an album. Would probably be a blast if I were sitting in the club with a beer, but it's less interesting as a studio album
funky, but a little much in places. A 14 minute track seems excessive
Sounds like an album Louis would enjoy
Some nice tracks on this one, enjoyed a fair amount of it. Too inconsistent for anything more than a 3
Lots of reggae on this list
Considering it came out in 1981 you can see the influence of it on later punk e.t.c. Would I listen to all 15 tracks for fun? Probably not, there's stuff it's influenced I'd rather listen to
*This is a Missy Elliott original*
Was alright, only a couple of tracks stuck with me
The Danzig covers are better. Also, what's with the random fade-out at 3:30 in suspicious minds? Sounds like the producer's hand slipped but he just kept it on there
I listened to this whole fucking double album and I don't remember a single thing about it
Good stuff, haven't listened to much soul before, I especially like the first two tracks: the cheating lyrics are a bit much. I recognise a snippet from a public enemy sample, and I'm pretty sure portishead/tricky use some samples of his too
Listened to a few tracks, sounds like the instrumental interludes from early massive attack but a whole album of it
I've been enjoying the soul music on the list, It's not a genre I'd heard much before. This one isn't as good as the Isaac Hayes though
It's Bowie. Haven't listened to this one before, only heard a bit of bowie, but its a nice album
Classic, although I've never listened to the whole thing before. They have quite a distinctive sound, and I enjoy the unusual chord progressions
I listened to a good amount of this, but I aint listening to 72 minutes of boring country moaning
Some good tunes. The live album element gets a bit grating though, all the talking and screaming crowds dont add anything
meh, ok pop
Not sure what I thought of this one, seems like an album that needs multiple listens. It's somewhat original at least
Kinda fun, some classic tunes. Could get into it if I'm in a certain mood
Got a few tracks in, not as bad as I thought it might be. Not really in the mood for this kinda thing..
Some fun tracks, sounds like a worse led zeppelin.
A little hit and miss, but I like his voice and some of the tracks. Fav tracks: sign your name/as yet untitled
I do like Nina Simone, but this album isn't her best. Still enjoyable though, even if I'd rather listen to her earlier stuff
This is the second album I've listened to by Joy Division and I just can't get into it. It's not bad per se its just so dull, I can't be the only person who thinks that..
3.5/5. Some decent prog rock, nothing special. Drags a bit towards the end
It ain't September but it is good fun
Didn't listen to the whole thing. Some classic tracks for sure, but I'd really struggle to listen to more than a few tracks at once..
I like me some chemical brothers. I do seem to be giving everything a 3 these days.. Struggling to expand my rating range
I've really loved some of the soul on this list, but this didn't have the same musical interest or *soul* as the others I guess.. I've been giving everything a 3 lately so I'm gonna give this one a 2
It's a bit rough around the edges, but some cool early electronic/psychadelic music
First few tracks are nice but it got a bit much after a while. I think I could really enjoy this if I'm in the right mood
Some really beautiful tracks and some very mundane. Was going to give this a 4 but the later parts of the album really let it down
It's just so boring. Maybe I don't *get it* but it's just wailing over the same two chords for the whole album
Entertaining and funky. Some unusual production too
Its not the subgenre of hiphop I'd usually listen to, but it was interesting to give a go. It's undeniably good at what it does
Was really getting into this one, some classic tunes
I do really like some of the tracks on this, I enjoy this style of hip-hop. As a whole album its a bit much, almost an hour long and the live snippets are a little grating. 3.5
3.5/5, some nice folk, would probably go up to a 4 on second listen. some parts are a little bland though
Classic alert! Great album, I've known this one for a while. It took me ages to realise there were two vocalists on this, their voices sound so similar..
Nicely atmospheric with some pretty tracks, but nothing special
Surprisingly enjoyable. Interesting enough to lift it from the usual indie rock
Good fun, I assume the lyrics/style is a bit tongue in cheek but it's entertaining even if it isn't. Not a huge amount of lasting appeal though
It has a cool sound, I like the production style. The tracks were often a little hit and miss for me though
If I'm purely rating this off first listen, which I guess is the point of this, it gets a 3.5. Would probably get better upon more listens, but it didn't really excite me first time round, there are Bowie albums I enjoyed more. I think perhaps my expectations were too high going into this...
Enjoyed this one, I seem to really like big band jazz
The other Dexys album didn't irritate me this much.. His voice is intensely annoying, all the instruments sound out of tune, its just a hot mess
Couldn't get into this one. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood but it just seemed so instantly forgettable
Enjoyed the first half of this especially, it got a little grating near the end: in particular I wasn't always a fan of the vocal style. Shoutout to the Sister sledge cover
Maybe this was exciting 60 years ago but it really doesnt stand up today
Classic, the only band I can think of that successfully mixes rap and metal. Although I prefer battle of la
Not as bad as I thought it'd be considering the previous britpop on the list. That being said, it's very forgettable and I have no desire to revisit it
Mostly enjoyable, I like the style of music, although the album is way too long... They really could have cut it down to half the length. The production irritated me for some reason: the audio quality seems poor and I don't like the mix. Some of the lyrics are a bit much too, sir pyscho sexy was the worst example of this
Very solid album, I'm surprised I haven't heard of the band before. I especially appreciate the flute, solid 4
Good fun, I appreciate the lighthearted style
Not bad, but there's yet to be any soul on this list that even comes close to isaac hayes
He's a good singer and the instrumentals are decent but the live element of this is just much too irritating. Theres so much background sceaming and talking that I just cant enjoy it
Very enjoyable, I haven't listened to any common before. I like the jazz influence, the whole thing works well
Good fun, nothing to write home about
It's alright, just perhaps a little bland for the genre. For example I enjoy Nina Simone a lot more because of the great piano playing, and I enjoy Isaac Hayes more because of the excellent instrumentals, this just doesn't have enough to offer musically
A little overly long but very enjoyable. The songs are well written and I enjoy the chamber pop sound, even if it's been overdone in recent years
*dance dance dance til ur dead* The rest of the album is pretty enjoyable, I was expecting it to be worse
Kinda fun although it falls off near the end. First track is great
Alternates between some beautiful moments and musical wallpaper. Reminds me of fleet foxes a little
I listened to this yesterday but didn't remember a single thing about it. Was better upon second listen, some surprisingly nice tracks
Reminds me of Kate Bush both in the instrumentals and the vocal style. Consistently decent with a few really nice tracks, 3.5
Kinda boring, can't remember a single thing about it
Surprisingly good, the few first tracks especially. I needed a bit of time to digest this one
A couple of classic tracks, but it's mostly pretty dull. My dad likes blondie for some reason
It's on the verge of popular music - it sounds more like philip glass or steve reich to me. I do quite like it for the same reasons I like those musicians, it's an unusual one for this list
I'm not a big britpop fan but it's hard not to like a lot of this album, there are some really good tracks. By far the best britpop on this list so far, 3.5
Actually pretty fun, some good tracks: relax is a classic. Some of the lyrics are a bit much, but I suppose the album title warns of that
It's another one of the albums that seems like its on the list because of its influence. That being said, it was quite pleasant to have on in the background, I was expecting worse
I thought this would be worse, some parts were enjoyable. First track is in the simpsons. The lyrics are like what my mum thinks all hip hop lyrics sound like
It's okay, my previous comments on the Doors all still apply
Not feeling this one. Some of the lyrics are pretty funny though
It's Kate Bush, it's alright. She has a distinctive vocal style which I like, and some creative instrumentals
Reminds me of Jethro Tull but less musically creative. Pleasant easy listening
Cheesey country, not for me
He's clearly a good songwriter, and the vocal style works. It's not hugely interesting but decent
I have similar feelings to this as the previous Rod Stewart album. Gonna give this a 2 to balance both out to a 2.5
The beats are surprisingly good, same people as public enemy apparently. The lyrics alternate between okay and unenjoyable, maybe a 2.5? alright in small amounts
Pretty consistently good album, would listen again
A lot of nice short catchy tunes, an enjoyable 3.5
I enjoy this a surprising amount, best album we've had on the list for a while.. Lighthearted fun, nice mix of jazzy backing and nonsense
Enjoyed sitting through this one. Admittedly my favourite track was 'the partisan' which is a cover. 3.5
pretty rough 1.5
Good stuff, first track is overplayed but still a classic. 3.5
Okay, just kinda bland
Another one of these 'influential but not actually entertaining to listen to' ones
Started strong, a lot of stuff to like. It got a little grating after a while, but still enjoyable. I like the jazzy backings
Great album, very enjoyable. It's amazing how much variety there is in Miles Davis' discography. This one is one of my favourites, I like the longer compositions and relaxed atmosphere, reminds me a little of sun's jazzier stuff
Kinda generic psych rock, okay. Hugh Masekala does the trumpet on the first track apparently, I like the links between the different 1001 albums
First track is a bop, decent sound overall. Could get into this if I'm in the right mood
I thought it was going to be another bland 80s rock record but I'm very happy to be proven wrong. This is a very well written album, definitely will give another listen, not much more I can say about it atm
Enjoyed this one. The reason I follow this list is to introduce me to great music I perhaps wouldn't normally come across, and this fits that bill perfectly
It sure is Bowie. Lukewarm on this one
This seems like an album that would need multiple listens to appreciate. On first listen it's alright but nothing special, despite the glowing critic reviews
Decent, I like the style
A lot of enjoyable, well written songs, it's almost a 4 but I don't have much of a desire to revisit it
I like the genre/style of the album, but an hour of it drags on and gets a bit repetitive
I don't dislike the dreamy style. It treads a fine line between musically creative and weird for the sake of weird
*a love supreme, a love supreme, a love supreme, a love supreme*
Surprisingly bleak and unusual. Definitely interesting considering its from the 60s, but not sure if I really *enjoyed* it
I do like a lot of tracks from Incubus. As a whole album it's pretty hit and miss, but still some good moments on this one. Drive is a classic
Some really nice tracks. Doesn't quite do enough to get a 4 from me
2.5. I do really like some of the tracks, I use to love 'break on through' as a kid. But the album as a whole has so many forgettable tracks between the popular ones. And even the famous ones drag on and on with winding aimless solos for 7+ minutes
'You can call me Al' gives me ptsd to shitty undergrad club nights. Other than that, enjoyable. I appreciate the influence of south african music
Actually pretty good fun, had a fun time with this one. Sounds a bit like gizz. Keep on Chooglin'
A bit rough. One of the less enjoyable 60s psych albums we've had
A strong 3. Don't know if I'd listen again but was fun, similar to Wham. Not sure how I feel about some of the lyrics, but they gave me a laugh
It's got one or two nice tracks on it, but the rest of it wears thin. The fake radio/ads thing gets old quick
Some nice post rock, wasn't really in the mood for it at the time but will maybe give another go. Probably very influential etc etc
This was used for a dishwasher advert, and that fits
I do really like more recent albums of this genre. This is a very early prototype of it, so its a bit rough around the edges and doesn't benefit from modern production techniques. However I appreciate the influence of it
Some good bops, not hugely consistent and wears a little thin after a while
Actually very enjoyable, will give this artist/genre more listens. It seems like 90% of the list is north american/western european music but whenever we get something different (African/South American etc) its excellent. Some more cultural variety would probably have benefitted this list
boring pop. why is this on the list?
Strong 3, almost a 4. A few low points but some great tracks, I enjoy the overall style/sound: it's pretty distinctive
I enjoyed it, it's definitely good at what it does, wasn't expecting to give it a high rating. Some of the lyrics are a little much though..
She's a good songwriter, and there are some nice tracks here. Not feeling any strong desire to revisit it though
strong 3. Some great jazz rock, would get a 4 but the album is overly long and 'free form guitar' is pretty bad
I have been enjoying the talking heads, its a band I hadn't really come across before this list. This isn't anywhere near as good as their previous one that was on the list, but it's still decent stuff
Reminds me of Bowie, and its a little shoegazey in places too. Overall not super exciting though
I don't know, at times it was very pleasant to listen to, and at times it was just boring. A conflicted 3
I do enjoy this kind of soul music sometimes. It's a little cheesy in places, but still some great tunes
Can't get into this one, just seems uninteresting. Perhaps I'm just not in the mood for this kind of style..
Quite nice, nothing really stuck with me. I was expecting something very different, I think I was confusing Van Halen with Van Morrison
It's a classic, some excellent tracks. As a whole album it's too long for me to listen to in one sitting, but still good stuff
It's nice, she's clearly a very good songwriter. I don't know if I'd revisit it much, or if it does anything special
Dunno what to think about this one. I think I enjoyed some of it? It's unusual and the structure of it is a mess
Actually really enjoyed this one, I like the story-based lyrics and the instrumentals are great. Reminds me of the folk festival I used to go to when I was younger
On the fence between a 3 and 4, its better than most 3s so I'm gonna go with a 4. I love the first two tracks, it falls off a bit after that. I think one of them was used in Jackie Brown?
its not for me. I confused ice T and ice cube, I preferred the ice cube one..
She's clearly a good musician and songwriter, but it all just felt kinda bland. Like slightly unusual indie pop wallpaper. I'd be interested to hear more of her different albums, I've heard other tracks which I preferred to most of this
I really don't understand why this is so highly rated. The songs are so bland and poorly written, comparing the quality of songwriting to Echoes or DSOTM is a joke. It's all just two or three shitty chords under a dull melody, it almost sounds like a copycat pink floyd band of some untalented teenagers. And it just drags on and on with the songs all sounding pretty much the same. I wanted to give this a fair chance, but I just can't make it through all 80 minutes. It's a shame, I do enjoy earlier pink floyd a lot
I like it, a few great tracks on here. 'Get it on' is a classic
Vanishing point is a bop. Otherwise it's kinda uninteresting, just washed over me without anything else really staying with me
A very light 3. A couple of stand out tracks, the album opener was especially nice
Some nice disco, I prefer it to the previous Chic album
It's ok, not as country as I thought it might be which is good.. 'Up with People' is a nice one, otherwise a bit bland in places
Some reasonable folk rock, not very exciting
The lyrics are a bit much, but some of the instrumentals are good. I prefer public enemy
I wasn't sure about the vocal style at first, but I think I like it. It sounds to me like a trumpet soloist. Enjoyed this one
Starts really strong with the first couple of tracks, then falls off fast. It's some nice folk in places, but not sure why its on this list
Classic alert! My dad used to play this one when I was a kid, but would skip the bits with the swear words if I was there
I don't know.. She's a decent songwriter, and has a good voice. But I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed listening to any of it. Gets a hmmm/5 from me
Very nice, some classic (if overplayed) tunes, but a solid album overall. 3.5
I do really like the bee gees, but I've only listened to best ofs/singles collections, which gives a great variety. As a whole album this wears a little thin, as the songs are all slower ones from this one era, but its still fairly enjoyable
Good fun, nothing special
Some classic tracks, and the others are good. Never really listened to a whole rolling stones album before
Strong 3, almost a 4. The lyrics are questionable in places, and very good in other places. I did enjoy this a lot more than I thought I would though, some great tracks and it's pretty consistent.
My favourite album for several years growing up, I've listened to it a lot. It was a real return to form for them, their best since Kid A imo. The tracks are pretty much all great but my favourites are 15 step/bodysnatchers/jigsaw
A couple of great tracks, but a lot of it is pretty dull. Sparse instrumentation but not enough good ideas to make up for it
It's alright, standard folk
Not the best funk we've had on the list, but pretty enjoyable
Reminds me of tubular bells, it sure is unusual for the 70s. Kinda fun to listen to if I'm in the right mood for it, but a bit niche
Fun, a bit forgettable. The story around what happened after this album is weird though
3.5, rounding up. I like it, first film soundtrack we've had but it definitely holds up as an album
kinda lame. Just sounds like cheesy nu-metal, which I can enjoy sometimes but it's not interesting enough to pull it off
It's alright, sure is Bob Dylan. His music is pleasant but not especially exciting, I can't say I completely understand why he's so famous
Good stuff, heard most of the singles from this before. It's just simple melodies and three power chords for the whole album, but it's still enjoyable. Shows you can make great music without it being overly complex
I went into this not wanting to like it, because of all the wanky bearded overhyping of it. However I gave it a fair go and it is a decent album, better than the other velvet underground I've listened to. I'll be generous and give it a 4
It's just generic electronic music, with extended pointless spoken word passages. Kinda sounds like the interludes on a massive attack album, except less good and a whole album of them.
Pleasant listening. Some very pretty tracks but it does drag on a bit
The first half of the album is just a way too long live version of a meh song. The extended almost silent live portions with shouting are just so bad. The second half of the album redeems it a bit, calvary is nice
The lightest of 3s. It's fun to listen to, nothing special but I do enjoy this kind of sound
Enjoyed this a lot more than the other Bon Jovi album I listened to. The style can get a bit over the top and grating after a while, but there are enough classic songs on here to pull it off
It's pretty bad. It fits every cheesy 90s stereotype, even the guy in the background whispering *MC* and *Break it down*. The only redeeming factor is it gave me a laugh
It's alright, some decent songs. Very meh on it, as I have been with all the previous Leonard Cohen..
*classic alert* I have this one on cd from years ago.. My second favourite massive attack album I reckon, just behind mezannine
'The message' is a bop, but the rest of the album is pretty meh. I really don't like the techno style of scorpio especially
Coldplay is kinda boring white person music, but this and parachutes are still great albums. But maybe I'm just a boring white person..
It's entertaining, not as many bops as 'pump' though
wank britpop innit fam
Tried to get into this one a couple of times but couldn't. This kind of concept album can be interesting, but it's got to be musically interesting enough to make it enjoyable
Actually pretty fun. Not sure if I'd come back to it much, but I really enjoy the creativity
big arena anthems! Sounds like something that would appear on a 'best of classic rock' cd in the bargain bin in a gas station
Some nice jazz piano, I like it. The crowd is quite enough that the live element doesn't bother me. You can hear him humming along to his playing sometimes..
Some entertaining folk, not much more to say. Seems to be a lot of Byrds on this list..
This is painful to listen to. Fight for your right is the only vaguely listenable track on here, there rest is cringey, outdated and dull
Some nice tracks, but no strong desire to come back to this
There are some decent instrumentals, but the lyrics are pretty rough. I think 'pub rock' sums it up pretty well, sounds like listening to that one geezer down the pub who won't shut up
I think it was ok? Dont really remember anything about it
Some nice easy listening
I don't get it.
Actually very nice, intelligent lyrics and I appreciate the mix of genders. I preferred their own songs to their covers
Beautiful album. This is why I use this website, so I can come across music like this that I hadn't otherwise heard of
I didn't realise the genre was named after an album, that's pretty cool. Probably influential, but if I want to listen to some thrash/black metal there are plenty of other things I'd go to first
Why is this so fucking long. It's okay I guess, but I can't sit through over an hour and 20 tracks of it
Some lovely tracks on this, some classic beatles. Yellow Submarine is pretty garbage though, sounds like it was written by a 5 year old. Going from 'here there and everywhere' to 'yellow submarine' on the track listing is a joke, considering how nice the former track is.
Kinda disappointing. Paper planes was okay, but the rest of the album was so bland
Some nice singles, but a whole album of Abba is just too much.
Some decent hip hop, even if some of the tracks get a bit samey
Some pretty parts, but it does drag on in places
Decent, some nice tracks
Actually pretty good fun, first few tracks are great. Almost a 4 in places
Yes, but is it art?
Pretty enjoyable, a refreshing change from the usual 1001 stuff. Not sure about the 'imagine' cover though
A bit cheesy, but some nice soul nonetheless
Really nice, reminds me of radiohead a little. Some lovely tracks: the bones of you/mirrorball/grounds for divorce are my favourite
Some nice tracks, I like the features. The whole thing is a bit too sparse for me though, not enough going on. Maybe if I were in a different mood
fun grimey stuff, they have a very recognisable sound which I do like. Don't know how likely I'd be to come back to this though, 3.5
It has a nice dreamy sound, which alternates between pretty relaxing and slightly dull
Kinda interesting I think?
Had a good time with this one, some nice bops. Can really get into it if I'm in the right mood. Sounds a bit like Aha
Lot of new wave recently, and I still don't really understand what the genre is. This one's less interesting to me
Starts off strong, but falls off later. Some great hooks and songwriting on the first half of the album though, almost a 4
its not bad, its not good. pretty boring
Some nice, sparse songwriting.
Meh, I do like some Bowie stuff but sometimes it feels a bit overrated. As though people like it just because its Bowie, not because of its own artistic merit. I also prefer the Nina Simone cover of wild is the wind..
Its very soft rock/easy listening, which isn't what I usually go for. But the songwriting is good enough to give it a light 3
Its okay, a couple of stand out tracks, 2.5
Okay I guess? Didn't give me a headache like most country does
Not as bad as I thought it'd be, but still not great.. Lyrics get a bit much after a while and instrumentals are uninspired
The artist is definitely growing on me, I wasn't so sure last time I listened to one of her albums. I do enjoy the kinda grungy sound and vocals, and 'dress' is a great song. Almost a 4
'Folk punk' describes it pretty well, its an unusual kinda sound. A lot of the tracks are a bit dull though, and the lyrics cringeworthy
Really enjoyed this one, strong 4 that could go up over time. Some great songwriting and guitar melodies, I would probably appreciate it even more if I were a guitar player myself
It's the best Metallica album I've listened to, enjoyed it. I'm not always a huge Metallica fan, perhaps because they're so highly rated I go into it expecting such great things. But it is nice, accessible metal with some good hooks
Dull. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this one. 'Androgynous' is the most listened on this album and its just a generic 4 chord thing
I did enjoy it, but it seems like something that needs a few listens to really say anything more
Fun stuff, free bird is a classic
All the african music we've had on this list has been great, should be more of this stuff and less morrissey and wanky britpop
I like it, it's not a genre I've listened to a whole lot before
It's not for me. I do like some disco, but not feeling this one
Really enjoyed this one, not sure what else to say. Surprised it's from the 60s
Not a big fan, couldn't get through all of this one. I don't dislike the grungy sound, but it all ends up being a bit monotonous
Interesting, I do quite like some aspects of it. However it's very sparse and gloomy, so I think I'd have to be in a certain mood to really enjoy it
There are certainly some classic tracks on it, but as a complete album it's not that great. A lot of the stuff sounds outdated or even slightly amusing
I have been enjoying the Steely Dan on this list. This isn't my favourite one so far (that would be Aja) but it's still good
Enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It has no classic/recognisable beatles tracks but it's still decent, and it's more of a coherent full album than some of their later stuff
There's so much Nick Cave on this list, but I can't really get into any of this. It's not awful it's just a bit boring, not sure what mood I'd need to be in to enjoy it
Almost a 4. I do really like some aspects of it, the best parts remind me of flying lotus which makes sense since they do seem to collaborate a lot. But its a little overly long and some of the tracks/lyrics are a bit ridiculous at times
There a couple of tracks on this I could listen to, but as a whole album it's too much. The instrumentals get repetitive, the vocals are so cringey in places and I really don't like the random spoken word sections
It's not for me. The waily guitars churning out the same two chords for an hour just gives me a headache
Some excellent tracks, and a fair amount of forgettable ones. Pleasant background listening overall
It has a death grips sample on it! Also, what's the deal with the genre 'new wave'? The genre title seems completely meaningless, and is used on almost anything from a certain time period. It's like calling music 'indie' nowadays, it means nothing
We've had a lot of pixies on this list, my opinion on them is still much the same. It's enjoyable but not a stand-out album for me
It's interesting to hear another fleetwood mac album, and it's not bad. It's just overly long, and there aren't so many standout tracks, although I do appreciate them not just doing a rumours clone
It sounds a bit like portishead and other trip-hop which is a sound I like, but it still sounds original and not just copied from that. I really like the vocals and chord progressions
Its fun, some classic michael jackson. Not the disco I've most enjoyed on the list though
Some fun tracks and some bland ones. Overall I do enjoy the sound, soul/funk is becoming one of my favourite genres on this list
This is probably the first punk album on the list I've actually really enjoyed. It's heavy sounding while still being melodic and having good hooks, the vocals aren't obnoxious, it all just works
bit of a random mix of stuff, but pretty enjoyable
Some nice grunge, but 2 hours is a lot even if it is good. will revisit it again at some point.
Kinda dull, I don't get it. Femme Fatale was a nice track, which surprised me, so I googled it and it turns out they didn't even write that one
relaxing, but nothing standout
Very nice, some great songwriting
It's nice, although I prefer the other Hendrix album we had, couldn't get into this one as much
Meh, bland big area rock/metal. Kinda like a less interesting Aerosmith
Kinda dull and samey, all just blurs into one reggae mush
It's a classic, not sure what else to say.
Kinda fun I guess, although I'm not entirely sure why its on the list
First few tracks are beautiful, but it quickly falls off in my opinion. Still, some great songwriting
A light four, enjoyable stuff. 'Swamp rock' describes it pretty well, but there seem to be several genres influencing this
It is what it is.. Not bad but I don't think I'd want to listen to it often
Very nice, even though the album as a whole is a little overly long. Soul seems to be becoming my highest rated genre
It's a classic, listened to this a lot growing up. It's impressive how an album from a genre that normally gets very little exposure became this popular
One of my favourites, always puts me in a good mood. I slightly prefer helplessness blues but this is still great
Fast car is alright, but the album as a whole is a bit lacking in ideas
I do like me some noise rock. Reminds me of hold your horse is, and they did come out only a year apart I suppose. I really enjoy the chaotic math rock rhythms, but there's some solid guitar work too. Gets a bit repetitive in places but overall good stuff, I was a little surprised it was on the list since it's not that well known and a bit niche
Some fun new wave. This list does have a lot of new wave, this is somewhere in the middle of the previous ones
Had a lot of neil young on this list, and I've been lukewarm on most of it. This is okay I guess, but nothing really makes me want to come back to it
There's definitely some nice songwriting and guitar work on this, and I did enjoy some of the tracks. Just parts of the album as a whole felt a bit bland to me
Great stuff, there's a stark difference between the first track and the rest of the album but I don't mind it, I think it still sounds cohesive. Both parts are so good, the sparse guitary first track, and the funky second half. Almost a five, but I wasn't feeling the last couple of tracks as much
Enjoyed this more than I thought I would, I expected it to be one of those 'influential but not great on its own' albums but was pleasantly surprised. Sounds a lot like early led zeppelin
I do really like some Led Zeppelin. This one isn't my favourite album of theirs but it still has a lot of classic tracks on it, strong 4
I do like Frank Zappa, but I wouldn't have even thought this was by him if I didn't google it. It's just kinda dull
Some of it is hit and miss for me, but it's undeniably a great hip hop album. Giving a 4 as it would probably grow on me over time. The last track is my favourite
My favourite led zeppelin album at the moment, all the tracks on the first half are classics. The songwriting is just so good, and there are so many excellent memorable riffs. The second half of the album is a bit long and less exciting but the first half is good enough on its own to make this a 5
could've been worse
David Watts and English Rose are great tracks, and the rest of the album is alright. Solid 3.5
A couple of okay tracks, but its a bit long and samey
The 'Mama gave birth' song is so irritating that I almost gave up on this, but I'm glad I stuck with it. The rest is some solid hip-hop, nice instrumentals
I dunno, I have enjoyed some of the eletropoppy stuff on the list, but this is a bit boring. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood
Some of the songs are decent, but that's just because they're covers of classics. This artist doesn't really bring much to the table
Techno, or edm in general, has been an underrepresented genre on the list, but this is great. Good music to listen to while working. Although I'm not a fan of first and last tracks, it's just a wanky, unnecessary steve reich knockoff
An interesting one, I think I like it? In dark trees/the big ship are a highlight for me. Surprising it came out in '75
Boring, generic sounding punk
The genre could be good if done well, but I'm not a big fan. It's missing the excitement and musical inventiveness to make this listenable. Also is it just me or are the tracks mixed pretty badly? Some songs just seem randomly much quieter than others
Some decent grungey/noisey rock. Sounds like an early version of some more recent similar stuff I enjoy
It has it's moments, but its so long and some of the stuff sounds so samey
Some decent prog upon first listen, will give another go certainly
Some reasonable folk I guess, I have no particular desire to revisit it
Some pleasant folk I guess?
Some okay pysch-folk, maybe a 2.5? Been a bit of a dry patch on the 1001 lately
Some more nice Black Sabbath, I'm surprised I haven't listened to them at all before. Gave the last one a three so giving this a four to average it out..
Fun stuff, lots of Stooges on the list so far and my opinion on all of it is much the same
Cute, some nice tracks on here
Entertaining punky stuff. good riffs, good guitar sound, good fun
It's very 90s, I can't sit through much of this
Enjoyable, I'm a little surprised Maggie May is so popular compared to the rest of the album: it doesn't seem any better than the other tracks
As fashionable as it seems these days to hate coldplay, I do really like this album..
Some unusual jazz, will definitely be revisiting this one
Despite the fact I'm not always a fan of live albums, I did enjoy this one. The main downside is the 5 and a half minute drum solo
It's alright, some kinda fun punk. The vocals are irritating at times though
Some great tracks, although it does get a little samey. *It's like raaaaiin on youuuur weeddding daaay*
The first few tracks are fine, but it just goes on and on and on. There are excessively long intros to almost every song, as though they couldn't be bothered to cut it like a normal album.
It is good fun, some great tracks. The spoken word sections are cringey though, the paradise song was especially cringey
It's a little hit and miss, but there are some nice tracks on here. Interesting to hear an early Queen album before most of their most famous songs came out. The very lightest of threes
Good songwriting, good variety, strong 3
It undeniably has some beautiful songs on it, but it also has some jangly irritating tracks. The 90 minute runtime just isn't justified, this could be cut down to an excellent 40 minute album just by taking out the actually good songs
Hey it has that riff on it. Otherwise it all blurs together a bit
The height of pretentiousness
some pleasant folk
It's americana I guess? Could be worse probably
Very nice album, used to listen to this quite a lot back in the day
The album is a bit too long, has some weak tracks, and is pretty much all just four power chords. Despite all this it just works for me, it shows how much you can do with simple instrumentation and harmony.
Unusual, not necessarily in a bad way. I do like some of the instrumentation, and there a couple of okay tracks. It's way too long for me to sit through all of it though
Country just isn't for me I think.
Enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would, had a lot of decent tracks I'd never heard before. That being said, 40 minutes is still a lot of ABBA
Surprised I haven't really listened to any Iron Maiden before, this is good fun
A bottomless bog of big beat bangin bops, brilliant
Some great tracks on here, I like the grungy guitar sound and interesting chord progressions. In my opinion there aren't as many standout tracks as in their previous album though, there are quite a few forgettable moments
Some nice tracks here actually, I do like some new wave sometimes
Kinda dull rock stuff
It has that one good track on it I guess. Rest of it seems kinda bland
There is just a ridiculous amount of Nick Cave on this list. This is another okay, slightly overly pretentious outing of his work..
Some reasonable folk, nothing special
It's not for me.
Some decent jazz stuff, not the most musically interesting or varied jazz we've had on the list.
I never knew there were so many words that rhyme with marijuana.
I don't really get it. Just seems like slightly dull generic orchestrated pop stuff
This was a surprise, an excellent metal/rock album. A great mix of shorter catchy tracks and longer more progressive ones, 'three days' is amazing. 4.5, rounding up since it'll probably grow on me
One of my favourite Led Zeppelin albums, some classic tracks on here
Slightly generic mildly wanky folk stuff
There are actually a few decent tracks on here, but the running time is in no way justified.
It's not really for me, I don't mind this kind of emo pop stuff but I find the songwriting on this album very dull. It's just uninspired generic chord progressions
'sail on home to Jesus'
Good fun, don't know if I'd come back to it that much
Not getting into this one, seems a bit dull
Pretty chill actually, although 70 minutes is a lot
It's okay, don't really remember much about it
It's not my favourite Gorillaz album but I do like it. It has its weaker and stronger tracks but overall a great variety.
Enjoyable, it has that one famous song on it but a fair few other decent tracks too.
Not what I thought it'd be, I got the idea from popular culture that this would be weirder somehow. Some really creative songwriting, interesting ideas, makes for an enjoyable listen
It's got some okay tracks on it, not sure what else to say
Boomer jazz, kinda fun but not the best early jazz we've had on the list. A little too much 12 bar blues for me
nananananana naaaah nana naaaah nana naaah
I guess it's okay, a little too boomery for me
Meh new wave
A few fun bops on it, better than the other pet shop boys album imo.
I really liked the fugees album, but this is just so much less creative. It has none of the clever lyrics, creative instrumentals
Meh, got some okay tracks on it. Bit long and it gets irritating after a while
Interesting, but its not for me. May try again sometime if I'm in the right mood
Very much enjoyed this one. Reminded me a little of Fleetwood Mac, or perhaps Fleet Foxes. Great songwriting, harmonised vocals
Shows how enjoyable a folk album can be even if it's just simple instrumentation and one vocalist
Another dull poppy thing
Some fun tracks on here, kinda sounded american to me which is weird since they're scottish apparently
Some really great soul. Some of my favourite albums on the list so far have been soul, reminds me of some of the isaac hayes
Pretty fun, I respect the fact it partially started a whole genre that I do really enjoy. Some of the lyrics are a little questionable
Some good bops. Some of the tracks get a little repetitive though
Pleasant country rock. Nothing I especially want to revisit
Some okay rock and roll. Gets repetitive after a while
I do like some of the tracks, although it can be a bit hit and miss. I used to listen to the 'best of' album from the band, I think perhaps that suits them more. Seems like more of a singles band than a full album band
Not too bad, not as good as remain in light
I thought Wonderwall was on this album?
I do like the beegees, but this is a bit bland for me. No real stand out tracks or moments
It's alright, not many stand out tracks. It's a nice genre to do work to
Some classic tracks, and some good variety. Not super exciting though
Very nice, they have an amazing voice and the songs are well written.
I've enjoyed some collabs the artist has done, but I wasn't a big fan of this one. It's just a bit repetitive and lacking in ideas
Some pleasant folk, not the best of this genre we've had.
I like it, it needed a couple of listens to process. A nice mix of styles and songwriting, although no one or two songs stood out. I'll be revisiting this one
Way too cheesy. Just a bit gross
Pleasant psych-rock, not much else to say
Sounds like Louis would like this album.
Dece, no standout moments but pleasant background music
Bland big arena three chord garbage
I like it, has some great tracks. Also doesn't fall into the space rock trap of extended spoken word sections
Some nice dreamy pop. Reminds me of beach house, there seem to be a few bands doing a similar thing
Classic alert! Although I've never actually heard this one before.. The best kind of prog rock: great chord progressions, creative songwriting, nice melodies. Also my mum likes it which is a plus
Cool. It's not my favourite Miles Davis, it's less creative than some of his other stuff. Also I think studying 'kind of blue' for music GCSE ruined it a bit for me
Sounds a little like Nirvana, a little like Tool, but not too much like either. Some nicely written grunge
I do really like this one. It doesn't have any of his very famous tracks on it, but its a consistently well written and enjoyable album
R and B isn't a genre I always enjoy, but this was nice.
Really enjoyed this one. It doesn't do anything revolutionary, but the tracks are all so catchy and memorable. Good bops
It has a few decent moments, but it feels a bit lame at times.
Fun, albeit a bit samey
Enjoyable album. Some of the tracks have been spoiled a little for me by being played at shitty clubnights
The best celtic folk we've had so far, good songwriting. It does get a bit much after an hour or so, but still very enjoyable.
A bit bland, but okay.
Some classic prog rock! The meme introduced me to this album, who says memes are useless..
Some early metal. Interesting to listen to I guess, but not hugely exciting
Some early beatles can be fun in small amounts
Not sure what to say about this one, I enjoyed it. Not enough dinosaur references though, considering their name..
Enjoyed this more than I thought I would.
It's alright. The first track has been ruined a bit for me by the fact it's in shitty TV adverts. Also I wasn't expecting the west side story cover..
It does have *that* song on it, but the rest of the album is very enjoyable as well. Operatic and a bit over the top in a good way
Maybe I didn't give it a fair go, but I didn't enjoy it much. The style of voice sampling got irritating pretty quickly
Some fun riffs, slightly questionable lyrics. It's fairly enjoyable, although the aerosmith we've had on the list does the same thing much better.
It's just random yelling over shitty beats.
A bit boomery but enjoyable
Some nice soul, almost a 4/5 in terms of enjoyment. But even though they're good covers, a whole album of covers seems a bit lazy
Not sure what to think of this one, a bit unusual. The title track is great
It's alright, although the best track is a cover
Some fun soul, it's quickly becoming my highest rated genre on this
Enjoyable if I'm in the mood for it. A bit irritating if I'm not
Some nice old timey pop. 50s must be my highest rated genre now for some reason
Good bops, classic michael jackson. Never really sat down and listened to a whole album of his before
Very chill, I like it
A little soft rock bland in places, but it certainly has its moments
A great early example of a genre I enjoy
Unusual but very enjoyable. It pulls off a genre fusion remarkably well
It's not a hiphop subgenre I listen to that much, but it's alright. It's too much to listen to an hour of though
I have very much enjoyed some previous isaac hayes on the list, but this is a soundtrack and it shows. It has fewer ideas
Some excellent guitar playing. I would probably appreciate it more if I played it myself
Why is there so much fucking Morrissey on this list
Kinda sounds like an early Kanye album, pretty enjoyable
Kinda unusual reggae/soul something
Kinda jangly and annoying
It's not my favourite radiohead album, but I think it's a little underrated. Kid A is one of my favourite albums of all time, and it's a hard act to follow and not just sound like Kid A Lite. However this still has some great tracks on it, although it's not quite as consistent as some of their other albums. Pyramid song is a masterpiece, and life in a glass house is a standout jazzy mess (in a good way).
Enjoyable, very smooth and listenable albeit nothing special
Some fun rocknroll
Unusual, but I like the songwriting. I personally would prefer the production to be less electronic, I'm not sure how well it fits the rest of the style. I knew the first song from a folk cover, its a great track although I still prefer the cover
She has a great voice, and its a very enjoyable set of songs. I think I prefer this to the big brother album as it has a better range of vocal styles. The background to this album is pretty sad though
Gave this one a couple of listens but still don't have much to say about it. I think I enjoyed it?
I do like soad but I haven't heard this whole album before. It's surprisingly solid for a debut, they already had their sound figured out.
Enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Decent folk, was worried it would be more americana/country
It's okay. A mix of decent songwriting, but the whole thing can feel a bit bland
Sounds a bit like Bjork: weird poppy stuff. It has it's moments
It's okay. Doesn't have many catchy numbers, or the musical interest of blackstar
Unusual in a good way! I like the weird harmonies and creativity, I'll be revisiting this one
Starts off strong but then falls into a slightly dull, overly wholesome monotony. Giving it a 2 because I've given out a lot of 3s lately..
A bit boomery but enjoyable
dull, really couldn't get into this one
I was a little skeptical after looking at the cover, but was pleasantly surprised. Some good songwriting on here
Some lovely moments in this one
A few standout songs, and she does have a nice voice. The running time is a little long though
I do like some indian classical music sometimes, I enjoyed call of the valley. I couldn't really get into this one though, the lessons before each track are a bit much when I'm just trying to enjoy the music
I liked M.E., was surprised to hear something I recognised from a basement jaxx sample. It's probably very influential in synth-pop, but I found most of the rest of the album a bit samey
Some creative early punk, I can see how it would be very influential. The lightest of 4s
Some great early thrash metal, I think it still holds up today.
First few tracks are great, but a lot of the rest of the album feels flat.
Surprisingly it remains interesting and well written despite its long running length.
Kinda fun. Although we have been having a lot of music on the list that's pretty similar to this
Almost a 4. Some interesting, snarly punk with some good riffs. Was probably pretty unusual in its time
Some classic tracks on here of course. It can get a bit much listening to a whole album of it, but still pretty enjoyable
It's alright, but it doesn't have the charm of their previous albums. Maybe I'm just biased because I used to listen to outlandos d'amour as a kid
This is a strange one, it seems to polarise people a bit. Is it a creative, well written album? Yes. Did I enjoy listening to it? Kind of. Would I listen to it again? Probably not, something about the style and lyrics really hurt the replayability
Very enjoyable, some great songwriting. Reminds me a little of Sampha but it is definitely its own thing. I do slightly prefer the more upbeat songs on it
Some of the lyrics are a little cringeworthy, but there are some good instrumentals
Some fun electronic stuff, not the best we've had on the list
I think it was okay, this one just kinda washed over me and I don't recall much about it
I like folk but I've never really gotten into Bob Dylan much. This one is fairly enjoyable but nothing special
Some well written pop songs. A whole album of it is too much though, and some of the weaker tracks can get cringeworthy
Pleasant. Probably won't revisit
Classic alert! I used to love playing the piano parts of this as a kid. I always enjoy some unusual time signatures, and they work so well here
A bit mediocre, dissappointing. I was hoping for some decent edm stuff
Another one of those bands I'd heard of but never really listened to. This is great, grungy and shoegazey but still a bit upbeat. A solid 4.5, rounding up
Unusual new wavey stuff, albeit a bit pretentious
It does have some fun tracks on it. As a whole album it wears thin after a while though. I actually prefer a few of their more recent tracks
This is a beautiful album; river man is probably my favourite track. I still slightly prefer the stripped back instrumentation of pink moon
I haven't rated all the metallica on this list that highly, and I mostly haven't been a fan of the live albums on this list either. However I did somehow end up enjoying this one a lot. They have a big catalogue of good songs, so they're able to put all the best ones into a live set without the weaker filler tracks. The live sound and orchestral backing also work for me, I prefer this sound to their studio recordings.
Aside from a few slightly cringey choruses, this is pretty enjoyable. A nice mix of genres
A bit too twee for me
It has it's moments, over the hill is a nice track
Some pretty tracks on here, although we have been getting a lot of 'white guy soft folk rock' lately on the list
Some fun tracks, but it didn't excite me that much
Too soft/countryish for me
Not as bad as I thought it might be, given that the singles off this are kinda irritating
Some good instrumentals, I'm not a big fan of the lyrics
An interesting one, hard to evaluate on one or two listens
Nice! It's that guy off the simpsons
Some fun new wave, probably wont come back to it though
Very relaxed and dreamy with some nice hooks. Reminds me of beach house
Kinda fun actually
Not super exciting, a bit like the janis joplin album but less interesting
I don't mind the music, but it's one of those albums where the live element gets annoying
Some classic tracks on here, but its an enjoyable listen throughout
A light 4, not my favourite Jorge Ben Jor album but still some great bops
Tried a couple of times but couldn't really get into this one..
Some really nicely written relaxed pop stuff
It's alright, but a bit bland
I enjoyed it, almost a 4. There are some classic tracks on here, but its not as consistent as some other Aerosmith I enjoyed more
Good energy, but it does get a bit monotonous
Some fun pop punk! Doesn't take itself too seriously which is nice
Some nice songs, not much else to say. One or two have been ruined a little by singing them in school choir years ago..
A nice collection of songs. Not much else to say really
It's not bad, but it's not for me. The production is good
Some entertaining reggae. A bit lukewarm on it
It's just kinda boring, it doesn't really do anything new or interesting. There's a bit too much bland folk on this list
He really needs to clear his throat
Pretty entertaining. Although I do feel a bit silly sitting at my desk working while listening to gansta rap
I think the variety is what makes it. Often the aspect of longer hiphop albums that I don't enjoy is that it can get a bit repetitive, but this mostly avoids that
She's a good songwriter. I would have to listen to it again to give it a fair go
It's alright, probably not their best album but interesting to see an early one
Really enjoyed this one. The band seems able to write so many catchy hooks and well crafted songs
A nice collection of songs. Layla is a classic track
Classic alert! This was one of my favourite albums growing up, and the first Radiohead album that I listened to. There are so many great tracks here
It's alright. I really like some of their early albums, but this feels like its lost some of that charm
Some unusual jazz stuff, I will be revisiting it
It's not my favourite chemical brothers. It sounds a bit like fatboy slim but without the catchy hooks
A solid prog rock album. It has some great moments on it
I didn't enjoy it as much as some other S and G albums. The spoken word bits are also pretty annoying
Some fun funk. Not my favourite funk on the list but still enjoyable
It's a bit surprising it was released in the 60s, seems ahead of its time. That being said, it doesn't have as many hooks and interesting moments as some later punk.
Slightly bland new wave
I was skeptical going into it, as it has all the genres keywords I'm not usually a fan of. But I ended up kinda enjoying it more than I thought
It was pretty good. I still don't really understand the amount of hype, or the amount of joy division albums on the list. But I did enjoy this one
Some fun early punk
It has some classic tracks on it. As a whole album I enjoyed it more than the other Bowie we've had so far
I don't get it. Sounds like I could make it in garage band in a few hours
Not what I thought it was going to be. Pretty enjoyable though
An unusual mix of stuff, I'm not really sure what to think. It needs another couple of listens
I listened to some more recent a tribe called quest stuff, but couldn't really get into it. So it was a pleasant surprise when I did enjoy this one. I like the jazzier style of hiphop
The first half of the album is solid. It gets a little bland in places later on
It's alright, a little bland. Didn't really have any moments that grabbed me
It has that one famous song on it, but the rest is kinda dull
Nice! Some great samba
I do like some math rock, this is solid but not my favourite from the genre
The first half of the album was very interesting, unusual and creative songwriting. It has a few low points but an entertaining listen throughout
Not what I thought it was going to be, but its a fun collection of songs
Some classic tracks on here, even if they are a bit overplayed. But it's a solid album overall, they have quite a unique sound
Slightly dull punk, without any catchy hooks or interesting ideas
A bit soft pop rock in places.. But still some nicely written songs.
It's very twee. That isn't necessarily a bad thing if it's still interesting to listen to, but this isn't.
Kinda grungy, kinda pyschedelic, all round enjoyable
Great stuff. Catchy riffs, good energy, bops all round
Some pleasant boomery pop
It sounds a bit like a less interesting Ritual de lo habitual. But I did really enjoy that album, so this is still alright
Some fun jangly, catchy stuff. It didn't really stick with me though
This wasn't quite what I was expecting. He's clearly very talented and the instrumentals are great
We've had some good hiphop on the list recently, but this isn't as interesting to me. The instrumentals are kinda bland
Yay another piece of slightly dull 60s folk rock
I love Led Zeppelin, but in my opinion this is one of their weakest albums. I can't put my finger on exactly why it feels like that, it's just that the songs lack the riffs and excitement of I,III,IV and physical graffiti. In particular, whole lotta love pales in comparison to the title track of any of those other albums
Definitely one of the better hiphop albums we've had recently, sounds a bit like massive attack in a good way
It's not my favourite Yes album, but it's still some enjoyable prog
It's very much a 3/5. I did enjoy it overall, and it had a couple of nice tracks, but I have no particular desire to revisit it
She has a great voice, and I do enjoy the songwriting style. I prefer Back to Black but this is still enjoyable
Classic alert! I'd obviously heard a few of these tracks before, but not the whole album. Thriller is probably my favourite track. The duet with Paul McCartney caught me off guard
Some great bops on here, first few tracks are fun. Almost a 4, but the second half is a bit forgettable
Kinda grimy and noisy, mostly in a good way. I can definitely enjoy this when I'm in the right mood for it.
It has its moments, some decent singer songwriter stuff
I knew the original piano/orchestral versions before listening to this, but I think this is a nice adaptation overall. It's not so common to have a good crossover of classical music and rock. They do overdo the synths a little sometimes though
A very well written collection of songs, although it has a few low points
Some parts of it are good fun, but I'm not a big fan of the extended spoken word bits.
I went into this with high hopes, since the description made it sound like it'd be an unusual mix of genres. But it ended up being mostly a bore, it seemed like 90% slightly unoriginal pop
It sure is the Beatles. Not their most exciting outing
Some very nice tracks on here, and a few less interesting ones.
She has a great voice, and the songs are pleasant. 3 hours is a lot though
Interesting to hear some very early 'punk'
An unusual one, pretty enjoyable. I will revisit it
Yay more slightly bland folk
Kinda punky, mostly enjoyable
It has that one nice track on it, otherwise its not super exciting
Some solid soul. Not my favourite soul on the list, but its up there
It treads a fine line between unusually interesting and weird for the sake of weird. But it's mostly an enjoyable listen, it's the sort of album that would probably need more than one listen.
Pretty good, but it doesn't have as many hooks and memorable moments as the other Megadeth we've had on the list
Great stuff! Sounds a bit like gizz, a little like arcade fire, but all around very enjoyable song writing
This one was a difficult one to work while listening to. But it was very well written, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would
Some fun rock. Not much to say. Not any classic tracks
Some fun edm, it definitely has its moments although an hour of it is a bit much
It's mostly a bore
Some fun bops, good background music. Nothing really stands out though
First track is fun, some okay moments. But a lot of the album is just jangly rubbish
Mostly enjoyable listening, some nice guitar playing. A little bland in places, but still good
It's not for me. Sounds like beastie boys
I'm finding it very hard to get into this one. All the silly spoken word passages are very offputting
It has some fun moments
Lots of the kinks on this list. This one is okay, like the rest. It does have a couple of good tracks on it though, I like 'David Watts'
Kinda middling compared to most of the punk on this list. Pleasant to listen to but nothing special
Kinda chill in a depressing way
I do often like this genre, but this is a bit bland for me. Too much 12 bar blues and wobbly harmonica bits
It's a hard rock cafe kind of hard rock. Has its moments but its a bit bland and repetitive
I do like some black sabbath. However out of all of the early black sabbath albums we've had, this is probably the least interesting to me. It has a couple of classic tracks on it, but the other ones seem more creative and original.
Unusual idea for a live album. Music is okay, a bit bland and boomery
Despite the fact I'm not always a fan of britpop, this is a nicely written album. A lot of great tracks and hooks
Some very nice prog, first track is great. Second track is a good bop too, although the asian jingle thing is a bit ridiculous. The later tracks are a bit less memorable
I've been enjoying the who on this list, and this is a great live album of their early stuff. It is a little frustrating that it's so hard to find the original album, everything is the 'expanded' version
I guess it's okay? I get a knee-jerk of 1 or 2 out of 5 reaction whenever there's country on the list
Some nice tracks on here. The whole thing is a bit boomery though
A bit lame, I dunno..
I listened to this twice and still don't really remember anything about it. I think it was okay?
Classic alert! I heard this one a few times growing up. The songwriting is so consistently creative and varied, it really shows good one of these older folky rock albums can be if its done right. It reminds me of the earlier pink floyd stuff also written by him, which is equally great. It's a shame he released so little music, and that pink floyd went down a less interesting route without him
Some very new-wavey new-wave
Interesting stuff, was released a lot earlier than I thought
Kinda fun britpoppy nonsense, although it doesn't have much lasting appeal
Seems like another 3, some nice songwriting but not much stood out
I do like some cheesy metal, but this is a bit lame. It's lacking the musical interest and catchy riffs
Some nice pop bops. Not a big fan of the interludes
Pretty enjoyable rock. Some classic tracks and riffs on here, but its a pleasant listen all the way through
Interesting early punk, some decent tracks.
Pretty consistent album, although it doesn't leave much of a lasting impression. A couple of famous tracks on here
I do like some early boomery pop, but this is too much 12 bar blues for me
Just kinda annoying. I wouldn't describe it as 'dream pop', its a bit jangly and the singing is whiney and out of tune
It's alright, pretty standard hiphop stuff.
Unusual, sounds a bit like david bowie which makes sense since he produced it. Perhaps a 3.5?
I dunno, its the Beatles innit. One of their best albums in my opinion, it doesn't have any of those weird jangly irritating tracks some of the other albums have.
Some fun space/psych rock, I enjoyed it. Kinda weird song titles though
Some really interesting unusual folk. I'll definitely be revisiting this
This is one of those albums that takes a little while to digest. Upon the first couple of listens it was enjoyable though
Some enjoyable funk
It has its moments, but I can't really listen to an album of it. I prefer some of the more recent prodigy
Some great bops on here, a light 4. Sex dwarf made me laugh
Kinda bland inoffensive old pop rock
A solid rap album. Not much more to say
Actually pretty fun, albeit with no standout tracks.
It starts strong with a few classic tracks, but the second half is pretty bland.
Some good tracks on here. Not sure if I enjoyed listening to a whole album of it
Some great songs on here of course, although they have been overplayed a little. As a whole album it's kinda middling
Not what I was expecting, although I'm not quite sure what I was expecting. A solid, creative rock/metal album, the vocals are great
Haven't really listened to much soundgarden before, but this is a decent metal album. Not unusual in any particular way, but well written
I don't know. It's obviously influential and creative, but I just can't get into it.
Pretty surprising that it came out in the early 70s. It kinda sounds like some alt-prog from the 2010s
Good music to listen to while working. A bit repetitive to sit down and listen to
Very nice blues rock. The first half of the album is better imo
It sure is Elvis Presley.
Vaguely entertaining, but a bit bland.
It's a bit boring innit? I suppose it's a somewhat interesting version of early punk
This one caught me by surprise. Some very creative, slightly progressive, punk. I'll be revisiting it
The lightest of fours, an overall enjoyable album
I got kinda put off reading the wikipedia page about the artist... Seems okay
Meh, slightly bland bob dylan outing. The live element doesn't add much for me
Some fun rock, an enjoyable but forgettable listen
I didn't like the other Johnny cash album on this list, but somehow this one really hit home for me. The hurt cover is beautiful, and although most of the songs are covers it doesn't feel lazy. The fact he died a year after releasing this makes it pretty sad though
A good pink floyd outing, not my favourite of theirs.
The lightest of fours. An enjoyable poppy punk outing, first few tracks are especially good.
Some reasonable but forgettable rock
Decent rock album. Sounded more influenced by soul than hard rock
Nice! I always appreciate some cuban music and salsa on the list
I do like a lot of the grunge coming from this era, but this one feels a little blander and flatter than the others.
Some decent cheesy disco bops on here, but overall I'm lukewarm on Prince. Some of the lyrics are a little cringey too.
Another classic Yes album! This one and Fragile are my favourites
Some classic hiphop, some decent tracks on here.
It's alright, another slightly bland pop folky thing.
Pretty nice, almost a four. It's not quite as interesting as some of the early folk we've had on the list
A solid early punk album. First few tracks are especially good
A solid enjoyable blues album, not much else to say.
Nice background music, and some stand-out tracks. It can all blur together a bit though
I used to listen to this one a lot as a kid. It's a great album, although it'll always be eclipsed a little by OK computer.
I thought grime was a more recent genre, so it's interesting to listen to an early influential grime album. I really like the interesting rhythms, and his vocals complement it well
Too bland for me
Some nice Frank Ocean. This and Blonde are both solid albums
Not what I was expecting, don't think I've listened to this one before. A lot of creativity and variety, and wide ranging influences.
A very enjoyable electronic album, I really wasn't sure what to expect going into this one. A pleasant surprise. Genesis and Phantom pt2 are probably my favourites
A solid prog rock outing. It's not quite what I thought Supertramp was for some reason
I have been enjoying some of the electronic music on the list, but this is too repetitive for me. It lacks enough musicla ideas to sustain 20+ minute track lengths
A great jazz album. The songs are long and progressive, but this suits the style well. An all round bop
Nick Drake is one of the artists I hadn't really listened to before the 1001, but is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists. This has some excellent tracks on it. Pink moon is still my favourite album of his though
I dunno, I tried this one about three times and every time I completely forgot what it was like. Seems extremely bland
Kinda enjoyable, I liked the other Spiritualized album a bit more
Seems like a solid folk album, I think I enjoyed it a little more than the other Neil Young. The fact its not on spotify is a little frustrating
Really make u think.
It's just a bit bland. I like hip-hop which has some jazzy elements, or interesting rhythms or beats. Even their vocal style seems a bit dull
Some fun moments, but it feels a bit forgettable at times
A wild ride. But behind the slight sillyness there is some excellent songwriting, I even enjoyed the songs with country elements. I was surprised to hear some songs Nirvana covered/popularised
A collection of slightly bland folk covers
Based on the first couple of listens it seems okay if a bit forgettable. Could perhaps be one that grows on you with time
It's the rolling stones I guess, reasonably enjoyable listen.
The cha cha song is such a bop, but the rest of the album doesn't quite live up to that.
meh, not a big fan of this kinda orchestral pop. Sounds like a cheesy film soundtrack
Beep boop we are german and we like trains beep boop
Kinda bland psych rock album, I don't really see the appeal
It kinda alternates between entertaining and mildly irritating and headache inducing
Its an interesting sound, but the whole thing falls a bit flat for me.
A solid, fun rock album. The Janis Joplin cover was a highlight for me.
A decent PJ Harvey album. There is a lot of her on this list
I'm not a big fan. I do sometimes like this genre, but this one feels a bit less exciting than others
