I loved it, can't really say why, it was so varied and kind of beautiful
I thought CHIC it was well fun, absolutely love a bit of disco! Didn't get to say that before. James Taylor really isn't the music I normally gravitate towards but it did match my mood in the moment I decided to listen to it
Didn't have time to listen to the whole thing but liked what I heard. Made me think of community feel and carefree dancing and things which was a bit sad. The wiki page about this album is interesting.
I like the fantasticalness of the hotel, like the way it's described and the feel of it and that, the spookyness of the fact that you can't leave (is that a metaphor?). This kind of slow rock isn't really a genre I connect with in general so didn't get a lot of the album, but I do like the storytelling aspect of it.
'Don't think twice it's alright' is the most passive-aggressive song I have ever heard 😅
I thought this album was beautiful. Sigur Ros will always remind me of Chole giving me a massage whilst we watched them live -remember that Chole? If not I am personally offended because it was a VERY SPECIAL moment and for me it really encapsulates the spirit of, like, who we are as friends, so if you don't remember I think it might make me doubt my whole understanding of our friendship, you know? Like what if I've got us all wrong? I mean, what about MY needs Chole?
Loved it! Loved the style, loved the variety of voices and styles, the use of irony, loved all the murder and death and darkness. I thought it was brilliant. Didn't appreciate the message that we should all keep our daughters at home because of the big bad world, but I don't think he'd get away with that now so I'm going to overlook it.
I thought it was nice and varied. I didn't think it sounded loads like vampire weekend tbh. I might give it another listen later today because word on the street is it's better the second time.
This album instantly fills me with 'fuck you!' energy but also a familiar warm kind of a feeling of belonging that could only be improved with real people to jump around to it with.
Not sure I've heard the whole album before so didn't know that the chili's were so varied in style, still liked the classic 'californication' type ones the best.
I enjoyed it, John Barleycorn was my favourite
I really enjoyed this album -I'm a sucker for female pop/rock (it all started with P!nk). It was varied and felt like the sort of thing that would have made me feel powerful had I heard it earlier in life when I had more feelings. Particularly liked 'queer', wonder if this was at the start of the reclaiming of the word or if they were using it because it was controversial.
I listened to this while I was pottering around tidying my room, fitted my mood well I think today. I knew a few of the songs as it went on and liked listening to them, but definitely ended on the biggest banger with 'natural woman'.
I always liked the song 'beautiful freak' and it's good to get the chance to hear the others. I expected it to be a bit 90's rock/pop and samie but actually I found it quite varied. There was a line about there being truth in lies or something which set me off on a right ponder.
Incredible album. I thought the repetition of his story was very effective, and how emotionally it moved between hope and dispair. I tried to really pay attention to the lyrics but I think lots of them went over my head. Really glad I listened to this.
This sort of music I can really enjoy but I don't know if I 'get it' like other people do because I can enjoy music of this kind that's considered to be bad as much as that thats considered to be good and I might not even be able to tell the difference. But like if I'm listening to it and really focussing I can kind of listen to it with my whole body and its sort of mesmirising and beautiful.
I enjoyed this more than I expected, I liked the drama of it! Sometimes the guitar solos did go on a little bit too long for me. It's funny, I would never have thought I'd like listening to Iron Maiden.
I enjoyed listening to this
I have a memory of one of our teachers saying the lyrics of 'every step you take' in a speech about litter dropping -is that something that actually happened or...? Enjoyed the album, glad it wasn't one of the ones where sting puts on a cringey jamaican accent. There was one song I really liked but forgotten what it was called now.
I mean, you gotta love a bit of stevie wonder! Some classics on there like 'superstition' and some I'd never heard before but enjoyed like 'big brother' -wasnt so into the slow ones but altogether a good album
It was nice enough but not really the kind of folk I'm into
I enjoyed it! Some fun ideas in the songs and that, I like 'perfect day' it reminds me of being in choir with chole and singing it in primary school
Didn't listen to it all but what I heard was nice
This man's voice! Good lord, it does things to me. Didn't have my favourite leonard cohen song which is 'i'm your man' but still a really good album, love the dark/existential themes
Okay so, the thing is, I find it hard to understand the appeal of guitar solos, I would like to be able to enjoy them but I just feel nothing when I hear one. Do other people feel something or is it more about abstractly appreciating the skill of the guitar player? I know intellectually that Hendrix was one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived, and listening to it I can hear it's really fast and complex and would take a very very long time to get the hang of -but it doesn't communicate anything to me when i'm listening to it. Maybe the reason I don't respond in the way that other people do is because I don't play guitar and I'm not really musical. Would like to know other people's thoughts on this.
This album was pleasant to listen to
I love Blondie! So many bangers, great album.
Possibly my favourite album ever made
I had a great time listening to this, I thought the voice in 'I'll be you're mirror' was interesting to listen to, and I liked the different themes I found them kind of captivating
Yeah I thought it was alright
I found it very atmospheric which was nice, I think I probably would have had an entirely different experience if I understood the lyrics but I really enjoyed the vibes and I was sitting on the bus watching the world go by.
I love the fabulousness of Elton John, the glitter and the fun and feeling, and this one had a bit of that but not all of them. Tiny dancer is a total banger though.
So fun and nostalgic!
Yeah it was alright!
I thought this album was great, atmospheric and varied in theme a d style
It was fun, got my blood pumping and couldn't help move a bit in my seat to it. Some great riffs.
I thought this was good fun and nice to listen to
I really enjoyed this, I didn't think I would but I thought it was great. There is a part of me that absolutely loves listening to women singing about enjoying sex, dunno why really, it gets me off or it's empowering or something
I absolutely fuckinggg loved this album, I think it was the lyrics that got me, and the fact that it was a bit weird, amazing stuff!
The only Lemonheads song I knew was the cover of Mrs.robinson (which is a banger) good to hear some others
I always thought 'since I left you' was 'since I met you' and now the song has a whole new meaning. I liked this album.
I liked 'feelin', 'freedom', and, of course, 'there she goes'. 'there she goes' is such a banger, every time. The others were good.
I think he has a lovely voice and I liked the vibes/range of themes
This was nice as a 'lie down on my bed and think about deep things' kind of album
A nice album
Some absolute classics there
I felt weirdly embarissed putting this on while cooking -dunno why maybe I have some negative association with John Lennon? I enjoyed it actually, more varied and upbeat than I was expecting
Excellent stuff, really enjoyed it found it interesting and fun to listen to!
I felt moved by the spider bite song it was really nice. The first song irritated me slightly.
This album had such a variety of feeling which is great. 'lifes a bitch' reminded me of the film 'fish tank' because there's this really amazing scene where she's dancing to it with her mum
I can see why this kind of music was revolutionary at the time, liked 'bored of the USA'
Didn't really click with me tbh
A-HA! Took me a couple of goes to get past the first song coz it's such a banger. Once I did though found the others pleasant enough, some I found a bit dull but some were fun, and yeah you know what I do think love is reason enough
I knew I liked MIA but hadn't properly listened to this album before and really glad I did, so varied and interesting, really felt it
I enjoyed what I listened to of this album (I really like the story element of the kinks) but it was my cleaning day so I switched to Madonna for motivation.
Had a good time listening to this. The ending was a bit wild, I liked it. Wasn't so into the slow ones apart from 'promise to try' which really got to me.
I thought it was good but didn't really enjoy listening to it, if that's possible. You get me?
Pleasant enough, knew a few if the songs
Banger after banger after banger! Incredible
I thought this was great! So good and full of great messages, which I think are important to music because music is about communication, and this album communicates well
Brim full of Asher has a very solid solid place in my heart so I feel a loyalty to cornershop. I am very glad I got an opportunity to hear some of their other stuff properly. I did see them at the Godiva once and they were great but didn't get to properly appreciate the songs. Enjoyed a lot
A good enjoyable listen, very unique I think
An absolute classic, brilliant
All killer no filler!
We have listened to a lot of bon Dylan at this point and I think musically for me this was the best album
I enjoyed it, didn't give it my full attention really as I was cooking and that but it was good to have on
I thought Lemonade was the best Beyonce album but now I've properly listened to this one it sure has competition. Amazing, wonderful, there is nobody like Beyonce
A very pleasant listens and some classic tuuuunes
A classic. I was surprised that there were songs on there I didn't know, I guess I have never listened to the whole thing, enjoyed those ones but the old bangers are by far the best
I thought this album was beautiful, varied and very different to what I imagine OutKast to be, glad I listened
I liked 'the cross' most, can't say why
I liked whoopie and anything goes, both classics. Nice and pleasant :)
I didn't listen to this properly so I feel like I didn't give it a proper go, I might go back and listen again or I might not. Not sure if it matters. Probably nobody will read this now anyway, not that that's the point but you know. If you are reading this, next time you see me say 'lemons and strawberries' then tap my right shoulder with your left arm and I'll give you a tenner.
I picked this one out of all the ones I haven't listened to because I knew I'd enjoy it. Great album and 'come on eileen' is just a song that hits the fun button in my soul every time
It was very pleasant and there were some nice songs
Beautiful, of course
I absolutely loved listening to this, not even a particularly huge fan of arcade fire but this brought be so much joy
I really liked the one about the moons contractor, very complex and lots of levels and that
I haven't listened to this, I intend on listening to it but sadly won't be able to tell you my thoughts because I'm posting this, because I want to see today's album because everyone keeps talking about it and I'm getting fomo, also in these modern times it's so hard to delay gratification is it?
I feel like there's been a trend for naming songs in lowercase, seems to be a recent thing 🤷 Taylor Swift definitely has a place in my heart, really enjoyed listening to this album, liked the one about murder, and 'tis the damn season' was great
They're alright aren't they, the Beatles. I always loved how surreal yellow submarine is it's great. A nice mix of an album, I haven't just put on and really listened to a full Beatles album before and it was good to do that. I do wonder what I would think if it wasn't, you know, like The Beatles. Enjoyed it loads.
Spured me on when I was cleaning, had a good time listening to this. Unlikely to think to listen to it again but it was good fun
I enjoyed this much more than I expected, it was really varied and even though I found some of the songs a bit dull, I found most of them really textured and found myself widing the waves of the music
Grounds for divorce and one day like this are bangers! Elbow were a different band in my head though, I think I maybe had them confused. Love those songs, the others didn't quite hit me the same way but we're alright
I listened to his whilst tidying my room and it was lovelyy to let it wash over me while I did that. If I went to see the cure though and they just played songs from this album I would be disappointed, nothing on here that's quite like Friday I'm in Love.
I liked it, I thought the lyrics were really good and I'm pleased to have discovered her. Not sure I gave it my full attention though and would like to go back and listen again sometime.
I love it! Really fun, a mixture of different moods/sounds all coming together, had a good time listening to this :) from the name and the picture I expected something really different though
I understand what cressey meant by dancing naked pagans, as it went on it moved towards more standard folk music. I could imagine some of these songs being played by the fire at a woodcraft camp for sure. With this one I just sort of thought yeah, sure, why not!
It didn't feel that this was the right sort of music for sitting on my own and listening to with my headphones, it feels like music you sway, dance and jump around to with other people. Really enjoyed it though regardless, I think I've only listened to the pogues Xmas song before so good to hear the others
The one about being the boyfriend of a little girl dated it and gave me the creeps, but in general I really felt their sound and vibe and wanted to jump around to it, found i drifted off as the album went on but that does often happen with these things. Would be interested to hear about the experience of someone who really loves loves this album
I loved it, can't really say why, it was so varied and kind of beautiful
I found listening to this album a bit of a strange experience because it feels like these songs are so securely anchored in a particular time that to listen to them, like, seriously on my own was odd. It was a bit dated, like some serious misogyny going on there that I was not aware of at the time, but the bangers are still absolute bangers and I really like the down to earth way that the artic monkeys sing about things.
Emminem is good at telling stories and I like some of his songs. With this album I get the appeal if hearing someone talk about extreme/taboo stuff, and yeah maybe there's irony or its a caricature or whatever, or its purposefully inflamitary/shocking, but in general I thought 'nah', whatever way I look at it, the answer is generally 'nah'.
I don't hate coldplay like lots of people do, I think they have a few classic songs that are pretty affective when I'm in the right mood, like the yellow one. Also they always make me think of my sister because she is very very into Coldplay
I enjoyed it, got me going and lots of different sounds and that
No surprises, I love this album
Perfect for what I was in the mood for whilst running, so fun and funky
A few classics which I enjoyed, others were a generally okay experience for me
Wonderful album, a classic
Wild, I listened to it running which worked well, I think I would find it kinda boring in other contexts, but whilst running it felt like interesting a varied
Amazing album! To the point and effective
I thought this was beautiful, uplifting and interesting. Will definitely listen to some songs again.
More or less what I expected, its pretty, whit winter hymal is still the best
I was in the mood for poppy bangers which is why I chose this one, but it was more sort of atmospheric than I was expecting, still very Madonna but wasn't really vibing with it when I listened tbh. Still like her though.
So good! Definitely one of my favorites so far, it was varied in topic and style, loads of different moods, excellent lyrics and so fun!
I really enjoyed this, I liked the vibe and lots of different themes and that. Nice one :)
I had a very strong emotional response to this album. It's funny how music has the power to being back such a strong sense how you used to feel, not even just about the song but in general? When we had nostalgia albums in lockdown I kind of couldn't bear them, because they reminded me of like connection and my friends and family and I was lonely so I found that to be really painful. I enjoyed it this time though, which is good and means I'm in a better place! Also 'all these things that I've done' reminds me of bill baileys parody 'ive got ham but I'm not a hampster' 😅. I have absolutely no idea how I would feel about this album if I listened to it for the first time now, I can't seperate it, but as things are I enjoyed it. Got a bit bored of the smile like you mean it remixes but felt I had to listen to the end.
I really like that this whole thing is getting me to listen to the Beatles, I feel like I sort of know they're good and am aware of their big hits, bur to really take the time to listen to full albums is nice. Enjoyed this and found it kinda playful :)
My dad, throughout my life, has said 'WHO's the band on stage' every so often. I think he's referring to a scene (which in my mind comes from a cartoon which I remember seeing, but in fact that could be totally my imagination) where someone asks who's playing at a festival, and someone else answers 'Who is the band on stage' and the other is like 'that's what I'm asking you!' ect ect ect I spent a lot of time as a child trying to rephrase the answer so it's clear, but I never could. 'the band on stage is called who' could still sound like a question, as could 'the band on stage is who'. Of course, they are called The Who, which could clear things up a bit I guess, but that's not the point. Anyway, my dad has always used this phrase whenever a) there is some kind of mix up because of a person's use of language b) The Who is mentioned. And I hope he always does.
Didn't really feel it with this one, I imagine they could be fun live but 🤷
Not really my thing
Absolute classic, beautiful songs, beautifully sung, in my opinion.
*Generally feel good and fun, love a bit of Dolly! I liked the traveling man one because it had a story, love a story in a song. *"one is only poor only if they choose to be' lol. I know what that lines trying to say but still, lol. *Some very dark themes put very frankly (like in 'if I loose my mind') but I think that was kind of heartfelt and beautiful. *I was bitterly disappointed there was not a single song from Joseph the musical, but I tried not to let that influence my enjoyment or judgement of the album
Yeah I mean I generally vibed with this, enjoy a bit of a story in a song
It was nice yeah, always liked the kinks. I think I prefer them in small doses though
'Gloria' strikes such a chord in me
Pleasant enough. I was cooking for most of it and I don't think I was paying much attention. Still, I liked it, no complaints really.
It was gloriously 80's, which I was into but then got a bit bored of. Didn't get some of the lyrics
It was pleasant enough at the beginning but I found I got bored of it
I didn't know the name of the band, I thought might be Christian rock, but I when Bad Moon Rising came on I was like 'ah yeah this one'. I wasn't sure about this album at first but sorta got into it as it went on and enjoyed it.
It was ok, didn't really connect with it tbh
I liked it, particularly how it sometimes sounded a bit like Bowie. Found it fun and varied
I thought her voice was a bit like Dido and I like Dido. Not as poppy though, which is good because there's only room for one Dido in my life.
Sometimes this albums thing is a matter of learning where songs I know come from, and also what music really really famous bands actually make. I thought the rolling stones did totally different music, but I did know one or two of the songs. Had a bit of a dance, enjoyed it!
It was great! What a wonderful voice :)
