Two genuinely brilliant songs - possibly two of the best ever, but so much average on it. Really disappointed.
Super album but not quite a 5 star.
Some brilliant songs, some that I didn't like at all.
The worst album I've ever heard. Would have given 0 stars if it had been possible.
Best album so far.
Great voice and a few high points music wise, but it has way too much saxophone and isn't a genre I'd listen to again.
Superb. London Loves and To The End particularly.
All good songs but they all sound the same.
A pleasant surprise.
Couple of decent tunes but very of its time.
Could be higher if the first half was same standard as the brilliant second half.
Was a 3 until Goldfinger.
A wonderful album.
Incredible - deeply moving.
Didn't mind this at all. Almost a 3 star.
Two genuinely brilliant songs - possibly two of the best ever, but so much average on it. Really disappointed.
Liked this a lot.
Superb. So close to 5 star.
هذا ليس شيئًا لكني أطلب منك أن تضع في اعتبارك أنني أملك الألبوم الثاني لفرقة الراب outkast Although the version of imagine is tremendous 😂
Easy listening. Inoffensive. Just what I needed at the time. Wouldn't listen to it again.
Just a wall of noise. Not the worst thing I've ever heard but wouldn't go back to it.
Fine. Just fine.
Very good. I find some of the singing a tad annoying but it doesn't stop me liking this a lot. A vinyl pick up, without question.
Would listen again.
Really liked this one. Pity they fucked it all up.
Overrated shite. He's done way better stuff than this.
Started well but overall it's just not for me at all.
Great voice but all very samey.
Never heard of this guy but knew at least a third of these songs. Excellent stuff.
Very decent. Interesting. Would probably listen again.
The singles, which are all bangers, aren't even the best songs on this record. It's really fucking spectacular.
Thought this was very decent.
Solid but wouldn't listen again.
Other than Second Hand News, which gets on my tits, every song is brilliant.
Couple of decent songs. Rest is forgettable.
Wasn't great. Beat heavy and low on tunes.
A really catchy album 😎
An enjoyable upbeat listen.
It was just okay on the one listen I've given it. Will provably go back and give it so more tries because it was interesting, just not what I was expecting as the follow-up to Paranoid Android.
This is the second time this has come up on one of my groups. First time I thought it was just okay. I now think this is a vinyl pickup. Superb tunes.
Wonderful album with some amazing songs. Columbia, Slide Away and Supersonic are as good as it gets from that era of music. Did I mention Shakermaker is shite?
Heroes is a good song and worth a star, the rest is worth a star. Overall I won't listen again.
Brilliant album. Not given it 5 star because there are better albums on the list that I've already rated 5 star.
Hate it. Hate the artist.
Inoffensive but uninspiring. Wouldn't listen again.
2.4 star. Some nice guitar accounts for the majority of the rating. All the songs sound the same.
Would listen again. Opening 5 minute instrumental was excellent.
Surprised I don't hate it.
There's just something about this album. I absolutely loved it. Probably my favourite so far.
Didn't hate it.
Melody for an unknown girl ruined this for me. Solid 3 star except for this song.
Would buy this on vinyl.
Didn't mind it but never been a fan of motor head and this hasn't encouraged me to change that position.
2 star because I enjoyed the riffs. Lyrics on this are terrible.
Good. Would listen again. Her voice is beautiful.
I liked this
Thought it was average
Didn't know any of the songs beforehand but will buy this on vinyl. Tight as fuck. I know it's not on the actual original album but the funk guitar on My Brain (zig zag) is superb.
It was okay for what it was. Didn't get on my nerves, probably amused me more than anything.
Didn't mind this.
Stunning. They are absolutely wonderful here. The song choices are perfect, the Meat Puppets are a great addition to this and Where Did You Sleep Last Night? is incredible. If I could have been at one show, this would have been it.
It's just okay. Better than some of their other shite.
A work of absolute genius.
Sounded like bad Joy Division. 2 star for some of the bass playing in it, singing and lyrics are not for me.
Liked this a lot
Liked this more than I expected. ‘I ain’t superstitious’ was a nice change of pace as well. Would listen again.
Thought this was very good, way better than I expected. Might listen again.
Loved this tbh
Really liked this. Guitars are mud but that’s okay with me 😎
Quite liked it. Perfect music if you’re sitting in a nice bar but I don’t think I’d want to play this at home again.
Very good, but like some of their other albums more.
Just okay, hate the 80’s style beats, scratching and music.
Thought this was excellent. Enjoyed the guitar playing throughout.
Very 80’s and for once that proved to be a good thing.
It’s just not my thing.
Very listenable. China Girl and Dum Dum Boys are the stand out tracks imho.
A great listen 👍🏼
I like Metallica a lot but this is very pretentious. The orchestral element doesn’t add anything to the songs, quite the opposite. Several times I thought it sounded like the songs had been adapted for a movie soundtrack. A real shame.
Quite liked this.
It’s okay this. Wouldn’t seek it out again but was absolutely fine on in the background.
Surprisingly nothing on this annoyed me. All very enjoyable.
Could have been a five star album if they’d picked the right 12-14 songs. Just too much bloat here.
Lyrically not great but found it to be very interesting nonetheless.
Dark lyrics but somehow it manages to be extremely enjoyable.
Super album but not quite a 5 star.
Close to a 3 star, didn’t like the final few songs but was good until that point.
Thought this was excellent.
Expected to like this a lot, was left feeling meh
I hoped for so much but overall found it a bit boring.
Real decent groove to this album.
Turned it off. Not sure who would listen to this. Maybe you needed to be there 🤔
This is the drizzling shits.
I groaned when I saw this come up but really enjoyed this. Would listen again and probably buy on vinyl.
A very easy listen.
A definite vinyl purchase. Wonderful stuff.
It’s a fucking banger.
I’m hearing a slightly better version of Gossip here.
This could have been 3 star but for the stupidity of the second half. Shame.
I enjoyed this more this time than when it came up previously in my personal list. High 3 star but not quite 4.
I really don’t get shoegaze at all but not on par with some of the shite I’ve rated as 1 star. Wouldn’t listen again.
Atmospheric but will happily live my life and never listen to it ever again.
Lovely stuff, would listen again.
Really good, would probably listen to this again.
It’s well played and doesn’t warrant a 1 star. It’s just not my thing at all.
Great stuff 👍🏼
Brilliant but wouldn’t listen to anything other than The Model again.
As bland as it comes and for some reason I like it 👍🏼
The singles on this album are absolutely brilliant.
This is brilliant. It loses a star for being made by U2.
Silly but some brilliant stuff on here. Drumming is as good as I’ve heard during the album club.
Great album, 15-20 minutes too long. Vocals and guitars are brilliant.
The best jazz we’ve had yet (which isn’t saying much).
Everything here works, even the vocal which should annoy me but doesn’t.
Liked this. Listened to a couple of times since, Just To Get A Rep is the best song on it.
Was a high 3 based on Chameleon. Fell away after that.
Never got it, still don't.
Great stuff. Would have liked a bit more.
Very good, loved her voice.
This is a review. Has high points. Then makes me listen to them over and over and over again for the next 9 minutes. This is a review. Has high points.

Easy listening and couple of proper classics.
Thought this was excellent other than the sax solo in The Gumbo Variations. Totally killed my enjoyment of the song.
Heard this for the first time 15 years ago. Loved it then, love it now. Can understand why it’s an acquired taste though so 2s & 3s won’t surprise me.
Probably the biggest surprise I’ve had on this group. Guitars and drums are brilliant.
Meh Meh Mehs
Great first half, weaker second. Still very enjoyable.
Brilliant. Would be a 5 star but for a couple of the less serious songs in the middle.
Brilliant fun album.
I don't like this. Too different from Stand! in my opinion.
I love her voice, piano playing and the lyrics. Really interesting and this could have been a 4 star but some parts are too jazzy for my tastes.
Thought it was excellent throughout.
Gets a star for first half of band on the run. The rest is just okay. Like the cover. It gets a star too.
Was okay. Wouldn't rush back to it but it didn't piss me off either.
One is a tune. Rest of it is fine but never really hits the same heights.
High 2 star. Lovefool is a great song but I find it all sounds the same.
I didn't mind this at all. Great voice, Nick of Time and The Road's My Middle Name are both very decent songs.
Absolutely wonderful. This is all very good and then you have Life on Mars which is on another level to almost everything. Loved Mick Ronson's guitar on Andy Warhol as well.
Would go back and listen again. Found it to be very interesting.
Second half was very enjoyable. But wouldn't listen again.
Break on through and Light My Fire get a star each. Rest of it is very average. Maybe you needed to be there.
I understand why people love or hate Elliott Smith. Its dreary and a tad depressing but I always enjoy his music.
Great vibe throughout and some classic tunes.
Interesting through out. Liked it a lot.
Pretty dark - enjoyable all the same.
Great fun. Close to 4 star.
This is okay, but I never got the wankfest.
I liked The Wall. Can't get over it! Yeooooooooooooooo
Not for me
A low 3. Really don’t like Australia or Kevin Carter. Not surprised that the singles from this album had no Richey James co writes.
I thought it was really good but also really quite boring.
Really liked this. Also didn't realise this was basically a dave grohl solo album. Impressively talented man.
This shit don't stink.
All very samey. High points are very decent but overall it bored me a tad.
I didn't mind this but I didn't love it either. Animal nitrate worth a star on its on own. Remainder worth a couple extra.
Good Christmas album ruined by Phil Spector being a part of it.
This movie sound track stuff is well made and well played, but still leaves me cold.
Always enjoyed a bit of Bush, however this was not for me.
I'm assuming the front cover is Neil Tennant listening to this album.
I honestly don't get the big deal with Bob Dylan. Bored the balls off me.
Stunning - never heard of this before but will be listening again.
Brilliant throughout, interesting and track order is perfect.
Heard this last year and quite liked it. Today it bored the balls off me.
Very decent although very samey - the singer has a good voice.
Thought this was excellent throughout. Very uplifting.
No doubting his talent but this isn't much fun.
Mostly brilliant - close to a 5 star.
Listened twice now. Not for me.
God only knows is a wonderful song. The rest doesn't annoy me but it doesn't grab me either.
On second listen the opening is too poor to give it a 4 star review. Second half is great fun though.
Didn't listen to it again, this is the score from original listen on solo list.
Thought this was brilliant. Natalie's Party and Daniella are both superb and book end some absolutely brilliant 90's indie music.
Just standard USA punk in my opinion. Quite fun but nothing to change my life. The 1001 albums review of this album is laughable btw.
Didn't like the last 2 tracks and considered giving this a 3 star but the rest of it is brilliant.
Couple of absolutely brilliant songs on this and the rest are all very good.
Trim some songs down and this could have been higher.
Wasn't massively keen despite the fact that Kool Keith's flow on this is flawless.
Decent in parts but very samey.
Reminded me of Aqualung and that's a good thing.
I love the G-funk genre but not this album. It has moments but is lyrically appalling. Main issue for me is that there isn't a single song on this that I'd want to add to a playlist.
Thought it was okay but everything sounds the same. Some of the tracks are way too long.
I find it both interesting and boring.
Really liked this. Great voice and enjoyed the slightly slow ambient pace.
So close to a 3. If only she could sing.
A brilliant live album.
Like Pet Sounds without the couple of great songs to save it.
Brilliant - found a couple of new songs I hadn’t heard before but will definitely listen to again.
Doesn’t know what it wants to be. All over the place, couple of decent tracks but that’s it.
A scraped 4, high points are great but too long.
Close to a 4. Really good throughout.
Enjoyed it way more than I thought I Wood.
Shocked at how good it was, particularly since I wasn’t found of No Sleep til Hammersmith.
One of my all time favourites. Superb.
Like the guitar, lyrics, her voice. Brilliant.
I get why this album is highly regarded. I just find the pace too slow and end up bored every time I listen to it.
Caught me from the first track and kept me interested throughout. Music and lyrics are brilliant.
This could have been 4 or 5 star if it wasn't so fucking long.
Close to a 4. Could see myself listening to this in the car.
It’s okay - nothing more. Me against the world is the high point and it itself isn’t particularly high.
Couple of absolute bangers and rest is very decent.
Thought this was superb, particularly the first half. 3 songs added to my playlist.
A bad bad album, with the worst song ever released. Frankie Teardrop can fuck off.
This is a high 3 album - liked the singing, the pace and the fact it has some good tunes. Although I can understand why some people wouldn’t like it.
Enjoyable but nothing would drag me back.
Blew my mind that Songs of Love is the Father Ted theme tune. The rest of this is good, and Something for the Weekend is a great opener. Could have been a 4 but for a slightly weak back end.
Better than I remembered but I couldn’t play it in the house.
Slept on it, extremely talented man but fuck me this is boring. Also, the groans and grunts as he plays are off putting and distracting.
Found this boring.
Rococo and We Used To Wait are the high points of a brilliant album. Definite vinyl purchase down the line.
Incredible album and really gnaws at you when you listen to it. Really unsettling.
Brilliant from start to finish.
I'm not a fan of the Who and particularly Townshend, but I can't deny the quality here.
Pretty standard jazz. Didn't annoy me.
Two good songs at the start with a load of shite afterwards.
‘Where the wild roses grow’ worth a star on its own. Remainder probably get another couple. A scraped 3.
Absolutely fabulous theme tune turning up here was a surprise 😂
Secretly worth a star, rest was worth a star.
A couple of good songs but its all very one paced
Few very good songs and a fair bit of average.
I haven’t minded either of her albums 👍🏼
80’s shite - the singles are good though.
Possibly the best hip hop album we've had on this 1001 albums list so far.
I want to really like this. No Fun and I Wanna Be Your Dog are both very good but the rest is forgettable at best. 2.5 star.
Solid rock album. Odd themes but doesn't get too dark.
The jazz elements of the album stopped me giving it a 4 star.
Took me back to Kellerman's ❤️
Decent without being amazing.
Possibly the best jazz we’ve had so far.
Brilliant, superb riffs throughout and never feels like too much.
There are two brilliant songs in here but the rest were just okay.
Good guitars and drums but not keen on the singing.
I liked this a lot.
Some absolutely brilliant songs on here.
Started well and then tailed off towards the end.
Interesting throughout and her voice is perfect.
'You oughta know' is the standout. Lots of other very decent songs, but some bad ones drops it out of 4 star country.
She has a nice voice but the lyrics are brutal. And it all sounds exactly the same.
It all sounds the same. Very average.
Annoyingly good. Close to a 4.
It's decent but very samey.
It was okay. Very Dukes of Hazzard.
Really interesting and some brilliant songs.
3 star from me for Jazz means it was great!
Didn't get it at all.
Singles good, the rest is forgettable.
I actually enjoyed it and thought the use of the baseball commentary was very clever.
Seven seas of rhye is the only tune on this.
Love and affection is brilliant. The rest was just okay.
Didn't understand a single word and still enjoyed it.
Brilliant throughout. What a voice.
Couple of great songs and the rest is okay.
A good laugh. Jailbreak as an opener had me bought in.
Started off promising, but eventually I couldn't wait for it to end.
A genuine rave classic.
Crazy Love is okay, the rest is absolute balls.
Might have rated this higher had we not had another Dusty album recently.
What a fucking waste.
I have actually ended up going to 4 star simply because of how good Rock Bottom is. And the Ken Kaniff skit made me laugh.
A really nice album. Found it to be quite interesting. High 3 star.
A load of absolute bollocks. Gets an extra star for some decent guitar.
Turn and Why Does it always rain on me are both still great songs. The rest isn't close to as good as I remembered it. Generous 3 star.
Other than TVC15, this is very good.
Once I stopped taking it seriously I enjoyed it.
Best album from them imho.
It’s not bad.
Excellent, and unlike everyone else, I quite like the second half.
Great stuff 👍🏼 Really interesting.
It’s a very good but not great album.
Close to 4 star for me.
Want to love it but it’s meh.
New York balls.
Second half was better, the version of Hey Joe was enjoyable. But overall is wasn't great.
I think this falls into the category of not my cup of tea, but to the right ears I could see this being well received.
This was okay. California Dreaming is a 1 star song and the rest didn't fuck me off.
This was decent.
Good old quickly.
Self indulgent shite. And I say that as a fan of JR.
Good fun. Tom sawyer and limelight are both tunes, close to a 4 star for me.
Best stones album imho. Stray cat blues the high point.
Beck never ceases to amaze me with the depth of his work.
Started off well but got old quickly.
So fucking boring.
It’s okay, but I find their music to be too nice for my taste.
Where is my mind? is in my top 3 songs ever. Gigantic is great and rest is good.
Big mouth strikes again and there is a light that never goes out are both one star songs. The rest is worth a star.
On another day I may have given this a 3.
I actually enjoyed the misery that was this album.
Genuinely enjoyed it, Courtney’s voice is perfect for the songs (not saying she’s a brilliant singer but it works here) and it has consistently good tunes throughout. 4 star album for me.
Started really strong and then got a bit bored by the end.
Didn’t really like this at all.
Solid album. Hope you’re feeling better, black magic woman, and oye como va, are all belters.
Sounds like the music in the little sections of Sesame Street where they’d try to teach you something. Not for me.
It’s brilliant but I think it’s a tad too long. Knock 10-15 minutes off this and I’d give it 5 stars.
Actually started well but I really struggled with the last half hour.
This was better than I expected.
Intervention is the standout on this album, the rest of it kind of drags. 2.5 star rounded up.
Decent groove but I’m not keen on him or his voice.
She has a great voice and they’re nice songs. Could have given it 4 if it had been shorter.
Brilliant dance record 👍🏼
I want to like this.
It was just okay.
Yes, it’s 29 minutes of the same thing but there are a ton of tunes on here.
Good album and a brilliant cover of Heard it through the grapevine.
Not what I was expecting but I enjoyed it.
This is better than most of the shite jazz we’ve had to listen to.
I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I love these guys.
Good album, with a genuinely brilliant song in ‘A Forest’. Memories of Oslo too.
Superb blues album.
Pena was the moment when I finally knocked this turkey on the head. Fucking hate the cover too. Load of shite.
Just a lovely album.
I really do enjoy this country music - piss funny.
Brilliant album. Lucky is probably amongst my favourite songs of the 90’s.
At least it was short. They get an extra star for that.
I dug soil. The rest was shite.
Not for me.
I’ve already forgotten it.
Thought this was brilliant - singles on here are great, nothing annoyed me and I absolutely loved the final track.
Didn’t sound British to me - really close to a 4 star.
Nothing special - I enjoyed it but it’s a low 4 star album.
Torn on this one. Listened to it twice, has some high points but a lot of lows. High 2 is my conclusion.
One of the best rap albums ever.
I don’t like Paul Weller but this is a good album.
This is totally forgettable.
Would buy this.
She’s some girl 😎
Some high points, some filler. Gets a full star extra for the bass outro on Barbarism Begins At Home.
Too folksy for my taste and I find Regine’s vocal to be super annoying.
Started okay but dragged by half way through.
Better than the Stephen Stills effort but only just.
Enjoyed this more that I thought I would.
Never listener to any AIC before, but thought this was great.
Although 'Around the World' is a one star song on its own, this is only a good record. It could have done with being 10 or 15 minutes shorter and is just too 'house' for my tastes to be given a 4 or 5.
Absolutely brilliant. Will buy it.
Henry Rolling FTW 😎 I liked it a lot.
Really disappointing. Shite in all honesty.
Superb. Grace Slick's vocal on Somebody to Love and White Rabbit are amongst my favourites by a female artist.
Good and boring.
Very close to giving it a one star. Shite.
Great album, and 9 Milli is an absolutely brilliant tune.
It's okay, but very samey and way too long. If this had been 40 minutes I might have enjoyed it.
Wasn't what I was expecting based on the band's name. But I quite enjoyed it.
Such an easy listen. Would consider buying this on vinyl.
This is bland and boring.
Not for me.
