Awesome southern/blues rock album
-Way better than Public Image Ltd., The other album I've listened to that I know is post-punk -Promtped immediate re-listen -Lots of good jamming
-Just not the biggest fan of most of the flows/styles -there were bits of good flow in "Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber," "Mystery of Cheeseboxin'," and "Protect Ya Neck" -I did like Method Man's style, all of his stuff was nice
-Smooth Operator was nice -Hang on to your Love is catchy -I like the baseline in Cherry Pie Perfectly fine, just not my style
-Nice, solid classic rock-esque album -I liked it, although nothing stood out -probably go back and relisten to most tracks
-Chill electronic music -I want it to pick up in intensity, but it isn't -I actually liked everything but the title track cuz it could go on my study playlist
"It's fuckin' Mo-tör-head, alright? Fuckin' hardcore Motörhead." -Dee Snider
-generally solid alternative rock -nothing really stood out, but very nice -will probably give it another listen
-"Cravo E Canela" was catchy -"Pelo Amor De Deus" sounds cool -Some cool guitar or synth on "Trem De Doido" -Overall very nice songs, just not really in my style
-Just a bunch of great songs -I liked "Let's Go Crazy," "The Beautiful Ones," and "When Doves Fly"
I mean, it's Tommy. I don't know what else to say.
-seems like fairly standard punk rock...nothing standing out too much
Nice, chill, and rock-esque
-Like classic, bluegrass country -a few songs were nice
-first song started really cool drum/bass, and then it was kinda boring and they got rid of cool lick and it made me sad
-great rock album -I liked "Take Me Out," "The Dark Side of The Matinée," "Auf Achse," "This Fire," and "Michael"
Awesome southern/blues rock album
Perfectly fine ambient music. Added to my study playlist
-"Viet Nam" and "It's Expected When I'm Gone" were groovin' -I like the big bass sound on a lot of the songs, like "#1 Hit Song" and "Shit from an Old Notebook" -Its a long album, but every song is like 1:50, so at least it switches up quickly -A lot isn't my style, but it's got a couple of cool track, really riding the line between a 3 and a 4 -"Corona" is not only relevant today, but it's also the Jackass theme which is cool
-She is clearly going for a certain feeling, and definitely achieves it -Very chill, and consistent throughout the album -To me, it often sounds like the intro to a song that is going to eventually going to pick up, but a more intense song was obviously not the goal
-Hotel California is basically a bad help review and a 2 minute guitar solo -New Kid in Town has a hint of country with the twangy guitar -Why are there two Wasted Time's? -"Victim of Love" was a nice jam
I like "Wish You Were Here" and "Have a Cigar"
-"Golden Years" is catchy, but that might be because he says "Golden Years" about 475 times -I've preferred "Earthling" from Bowie
-"Come As You Are," "Lake of Fire," "Where Did You Sleep Last Night," and "Plateau" stood out -Not as good as I thought it would be, I kind of expected more energy out of the setlist, like "School" or "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
-Great jazz rock, the bass and drums are jamming quite frequently -I always like adding orchestra elements to rock, and this has lots of horns and stuff added in -I like bassline on "Listen." Probably other too, but I happened to notice "Listen."
-"Crystalised" was nice -Overall chill and fine, but nothing of note really
-Lots sounds like David Bowie, and 1 or 2 like Pink Floyd -Some interesting tracks
-Riff from "Theme" sounds sabbathy -I liked "Theme" the most -Singer reminds me of that dude Angus O'Reilly O'Patrick McGinney from "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow - Live" from You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Vol. 1 (Live) by Frank Zappa
-"Good Times" was good. Also the bass in the bridge sounded like Uptown Funk -Quite a few catchy tracks, an overall solid disco album
-Seems like a step between early rap and more modern rap, with slightly more complex rhyme schemes than old school rap -"Lovesick" stood out as the best track -"Step In The Arena," "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow," and "What You Want This Time?" were pretty solid
-"other voices" is reminding me of the Talking Heads, also has pretty cool guitar and stuff at the end -I liked the grooving on "change yr mind" -Cool Bass in "how do you sleep?"
It was fine. A couple interesting tracks.
Pretty cool rock album.
-Great rock album -"She Has Funny Cars" "Somebody to Love," "3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds," "White Rabbit," "Plastic Fantastic Lover," and "Go To Her" are all fantastic
-I like the jamming harmonica on "Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance" -All of it sounded exactly how you'd expect Bob Dylan to sound, some guitar playing with Bob Dylan talking/singing lol
-Relatively calm rock
-"Blackened" is totally jamming -Nice, solid Metallica album
-\"Creep\" is catchy, I like the doubled chorus bits -Perfectly palatable hip-hop stuff
-Way better than Public Image Ltd., The other album I've listened to that I know is post-punk -Promtped immediate re-listen -Lots of good jamming
-I like the funky drums in "Pusherman" -The tracks are great, but from the Brownout and Chicago and other funk/rock/latin bands I've listened to, I was waiting for the music to pick up into a rock jam -"Little Child Runnin' Wild" is at a pretty good intesity
-I like "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due" and I especially liked the guitar shred towards the end -I like the clear chorus in "Tornado of Souls" -I like change of pace in "Dawn Patrol" -Some of the album felt same-y, but overall I enjoyed it and will be doing more listening
-Solid album with some fun tracks -I liked "'Tis a Pity She Was a Whore," "Sue (Or In a Season of Crime)," "Girl Loves Me," and "I Can't Give Everything Away"
-Was pleasant to listen to -Some tracks I enjoyed: "A Woman of the World," "Charge," "Middle-Class Heroes," "The Dogs & The Horses," "The Frog Princess," and "Through a Long and Sleepless Night" -I like the classic/orchestralish instrumental
-I particularly like "Piece of My Heart" and "Roadblock" -I also enjoyed "Ball and Chain," "Catch Me Daddy," "Magic of Love," and "I Need a Man to Love" -I kind of felt that these tracks just weren't as strong and energetic as "Piece of My Heart" -This is one of the strongest 4 albums I'd say, but it just didn't have something that really made me want to push it to 5
-Honestly a pretty weak 4, but this was better than quite a few of the 3's. Generally palatable electronic dance stuff with a bit of a rock vibe
-I liked when "As You Are" got intense and there was a nice scream. And then there was some nice guitar solo-bridgey stuff. -"Driftwood" was pleasant -Why is "Slideshow" silent for like a huge gap in the middle??? I like the second half but I'm not gonna wait for like 3 minutes mid song??? -Why are the bonus tracks way better so far? "Green Behind The Ears" and "Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah" are actually good -Nice Cover of "Be My Baby" -Idk it was just boring
Solid punk rock album. "Personality Crisis" stood out the most, I'd say.
-I like the low voice on "Cripple Creek" -Great of the album was just very plain, boring rock
Songs I liked: "Green River," "Commotion," "Wrote A Song For Everyone," "Bad Moon Rising" "Lodi," "Cross-Tie Walker," and "Sinister Purpose" -"Commotion" is solid. Great intro riff anmd good groove throughout. -"Cross-Tie Walker" and "Sinister Purpose" have solid basslines. The bass is slowly growing on me as I listen more -I added "Broken Spoke Shuffle" and "Glory Be" to my instrumental study playlist -"Bad Moon Rising" and "Commotion" stand out as strong tracks -Overall very nice, just a little slow and lower energy than I prefer. Comparing to "Fortunate Son," which I had heard previously, these don't quite get to the same level
-Apparently this is like Honky Tonk Country -To me it just sounds like Christmas music that wasn't written about Christmas -Except it turns out that "Bright Lights and Blinds Haired Women" does talk about Christmas -Enjoyed while it was on, but no desire to listen again
-Nice "-aded" rhyme scheme in "Intro / Go To The Floor" -Method Man's verse on "Bring the Pain" was nice -Good bassline in "Back In The Day" -Overall just didn't really like the album, just fairly bland hip hop
-I like the bass/ acoustic guitar riffs in "Blister In The Sun" and "Please Do Not Go" -I think the fat bass is really saving this -It just really didn't have anything interesting other than the bass
-Kind of cool acoustic riff in "The Stranger Song" -ok the fact that Leonard Cohen wrote "Hallelujah" makes this album so much worse -Its basically just guitar and Cohen reciting poetry kind of singing for the entire album -there is like no change of emotion across the entire album -this would be a 3 for a lot of other artists, but it was so boring and Cohen was capable of so much better
It's nice, very pleasent electronic music, but a lot of it seems relatively simple -"Drop The Pressure" was the first track to stand out -"Destroy Rock & Roll" is cool
-Nice drum fills and bass riffs in "Sueno" -"You Better Run" really stands out as must heavier than the rest -"Place in the Sun" is upbeat -Pretty standard early rock, a little chilly for my taste
-"Love Goes On!" has a cool bit where it alternates between just the singer and the acoustic guitar to the whole band, in a kind of call and response kind of way. There's probably a name for what I'm talking about but I don't know what it is. -I like the end of "Can't Say No Forever." Got a cool synth (?) And guitar jam going -I liked the more upbeatness of "Was There Anything I Could Do?"
-Great intro and guitar in general in "The Healer" -Great of it wasn't too exciting
-The blues-y (?) guitar on "My First Lover" was interesting -overall just a woman singing and playing acoustic guitar
-The vast majority has a flow that you would expect from Ice Cube -I like the general concept/story through the album -Favorite Track is "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" -It might be a 4 but nothing really stood out to draw me back for another listen
-"Karma Chameleon" is good and catchy. I can tell why it was the hit from this album -"It's A Miracle," "Church Of The Poison Mind," "Man-Shake," "Melting Pot," -"Melting Pot" is my favorite track. It seems live, has trumpets, good guitar riffs and bass riffs.
-Cool bass in "Walk From Regio's" -"No Name Bar" is quite grooving -"Do Your Thing" has great guitar solos and awesome guitar throughout. The lyrics are nice as an addition. It keeps my interest well for a 19 minute song -This is a great album, lots of grooves and jams. Would probably be a 5 if it had lyrics. I get that it's a soundtrack, so it's not going to have many lyrics, but I just prefer music with lyrics. -Basically all of this album is going onto my study playlist
-Great Drums on "Atrocity Exhibition" -Great bass and drums on "Colony" -"Twenty Four Hours" is a jam
-Pretty solid album overall, but the second half was kind of boring -"Student Demonstration Time" was by far the best song
-General catchy pop, although some of it is slower than I'd expect -I appreciate the use of orchestral instrumentation -"Act of Contrition" is quite cool with the electric guitar, reversed and normal clapping and chanting, and synth stuff, plus the twist on the prayer -"Like A Prayer" is quite catchy and I appreciate the double entendre implied by the vagueness of the lyrics wow that sounded pretentious. I basically mean how you can't tell if she is talking about God or a lover
-"Tutti Frutti" is great, obviously -"True, Fine Mama," "Can't Believe You Wanna Leave," "Long Tall Sally (The Thing)," "Oh Why?," and "Rip it Up" are all great
-Great bass and guitar shredding on "No One Leaving" -I like a lot of the bass. Great riffs and grooves. ie "Been Caught Stealing" and "Obvious" -Idk what it is but I feel like I should have liked this more than I did. Maybe because the singer kind of sounds like Axl Rose but isn't as good in my opinion?
-It is literally Van Halen by Van Halen -"Runnin' with the Devil," "Eruption," "You Really Got Me," "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," "Jamie's Cryin'," "Atomic Punk," and "Ice Cream Man" are all bangers
-I like the rock vibes in the bass and guitar in "Don't Die Just Yet" -It was quite good. A strong 3. Nothing really compels me to go listen again though, which holds it back from being a 4
I was previously familiar with this album, but never really dug into it particularly, at least compared to other Beatles albums. Like, now that I look at it, I'm only slightly familiar with some of the songs. -I like the spooky and Indian-esque vibes of "Within You Without You" -Whole album was nice, but I preferred the second half. Especially "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!," "Within You Without You," "Lovely Rita," "Good Morning Good Morning" -I am well aware of this album's status as an innovative records, but I don't think it holds up as strong as other innovative records. Innovative records like "Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath or "Tommy" by The Who hold up much better. The music inspired by this album has usurped it, in my opinion.
-Great bass/drum intro on "No More" -Great Guitar intro on "Rise Above" -Overall, the guitar and drums and bass are all fantastic across the album, but I'm just not a fan of the singer. I don't think it is the not conventional singing style, but just that there is little change in basically any way throughout the whole album. There is minimal change in pitch, style, or even volume, and that kind of drags everything else down
-"Sweet Life" had a nice bass groove and theme. Bass grooves also featured in: "Monks" and "Pink Matter" -"Super Rich Kids" had some interesting lyrics and I liked the backing beat, but I thought the beat would like develop on some significant way -The whole thing was pleasant, it just was SLOW and boring to me throughout lots of it, but I feel like it had potential -"Pyramids" was probably the best song out of the album
-I liked the instrumentals, but not the singer -"Let's Submerge" was probably my favorite song
It just wasn't as good as I expected. It should be something I like, rap with multisyllabic internal rhyming, but I just didn't find the flow exciting.
-Quite the surprised but I actively wanted to turn this off, most of it was boring -"Tusk" was great -"The Ledge" and "Sara" were good -Thay's pathetic for a double album
-"Soul machine" has a great fast verse -Liked the guest verse on "My Kind Of People" -Cool flow on "The Art of Noise" and "Childz Play" -generally good flow throughout, although I felt the beginning was much stronger than the end -one of the stronger 3's, I just don't particularly care to listen again
-I'm always a fan of rock+synth+other instruments -Great basslines throughout the whole album -"Recoil" is a great jam -"The Great Beautician In The Sky" has a cool circus-motif and a groovin' bassline -Cool like saxophone or something in "My Mind Ain't So open" -Solid album, I'll definitely be listening again
-Meaty bass in "Slip Inside This House" -"Don't Fight It, Feel It" is nice and upbeat -"Higher Than the Sun - A Dub Symphony in Two Parts" is quite cool -A strong 3, but nothing in particular draws me to listen again
Songs I liked: "Levon," "Madman Across The Water," "Indian Sunset," and "Rotten Peaches"
-"Double Vegetation" gets pretty intense with some nice screams -"Safesurfer" sounds like some David Bowie stuff -Songs I liked, but didn't have something stand out particularly strongly that caused it: "Soldier Blue," "Leperskin," "East Easy Rider," "Drive, She Said" -I like the keyboards in "Head"
-A lot of it seems like it has cool instruments and effects, but its just relatively low energy and I just don't get excited about it. -"Cause A Rockslide" is probably my favorite track. It has a good groove, and then there is a big explosion and a cool breakdown -"Disillusion" has a decent amount of groove and I like the piano and guitar
-Nice bassline in "Nite Klub." It's definitely higher energy than a lot of the other songs. -I like the pickup in speed of "Stupid Marriage" -Generally cool basslines relatively high in the mix throughout the album -Perfectly fine ska music, but nothing in particular is making me want to listen again
Umm it was Frank Sinatra. That was the interesting part
It was nice, and definitely created the jazz lounge atmosphere it was going far. Most of the songs weren't too exciting. I did like the speed pickup in "Spare Parts I (A Nocturnal Emission)."
-"America Is Not The World" and "Irish Blood, English Heart" are both pretty awesome -"How Can Anybody Possibly Know How I Feel?," "First of the Gang to Die,' "I Like You," and "You Know I Couldn't Last" are quite cool as well
-The drumming in "Frenzy" was pretty spiffy -Generally nice Jazz type stuff
-I mean, "Born To Run" was cool...
-Very nice a nd pretty, but just not very exciting -"Georgia On My Mind," "Blue Skies," and "Moonlight In Vermont" were all nice
-I like the guitar and the groove in the background of "Upon 9th And Fairchild" -"Leaves And Sand" has some serious jamming and drum fills -Some of the songs were pretty plain -I am interested in listening again, so I think that just barely bumps it up to a 4
-A Bunch of Lonesome Heroes" actually picks up in intensity -idk I really hate singer songwriter because it is so boring
-This album was quite cool. A couple solid jams. -"Skunk," "Identity," and "Wail" were all solid
-"The Words That Maketh Murder" is kind of good -idk pretty boring
Very nice, I like the mix of instruments across the album. Quite the jam.
-Last 3 tracks are like way better than the rest of the album. They save it from a 2 -"Alabama" is great, basically because it is really similar to "Simple Man"
-Generally cool nu-metal-punk-esque stuff -I like "Make Yourself" -Cool bass in "Out from Under"
-Absolute banger album -Jim Morrison's vocals are great, and Ray Manzarek shreds the keyboard -"The Changeling," "Love Her Madly," "Been down so Long," "L.A. Woman," "The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)," and "Riders on the Storm" are all classics -Personally my favorite is "Been down so Long," Morrison's vocals are super powerful
-cool stereo mixing throughout -I love the drumming in "Gypsy Eyes." A lot of it is so simple, but so effective -Great drumming in "Voodoo Chile," l especially at the end -Great bass, drums, and guitar in "Come On (Let the good Times Roll)" -"All Along the Watchtower" and "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" are absolute classics
-perfectly pleasant, but nothing memorable
-This was odd. It was a psych rock-esque album, but just not very exciting
-Just a strong album -Obviously "Breaking the Law" and "Living After Midnight" are great. Other tracks I liked were "Rapid Fire," "Metal Gods," "Grinder," and "You Don't Have to Be Old to Be Wise"
-Everythinf is mad boring except "I Live With You." That's the only song that actually has any sort of pickup in intensity -The rest are just the same vibe across the entire album, and the singer's style/the mixing make the singing not stand out at all
"Fakin' It," "Hazy Shade of Winter," and "At The Zoo" are great tracks. The rest were kind of boring.
-"Time to Get Away" gets groovy with a decent bassline -"North American Scum" is catchy. Or maybe just repetitive. It also has a cool synth rhythm -"All My Friends" has got a fast, upbeat instrumental -In "Us V Them" I like the high pitched cowbell (?) rhythm. Blame Zini if that isn't actually a cowbell -Not really my usual style, but has some solid tracks and energy that I enjoyed
-A nice old school rock and roll album -"Honey Chile" is catchy
-Some kinda cool stuff happening in the background of "Samba Da Bencao" -I like the rhythm of the melody in "Sem Contencao." It sounds almost swung or something. (Maybe it is? Idk, I'm not a music expert) -"Bananeira" is quite upbeat, at least compared to the rest of the album -"Close Your Eyes" at like 0:27 sounds like a lowkey version of the background music in "Backside Wallrides and Rock 'N' Roll Inspiration: The Amazing Richie Jackson Skateboard Show Ep. 3" at like 4:00 -A lot of these just kinda sound like elevator music, or maybe lounge music with a lady singing in Spanish. Just not the most impressive thing I've listened to.
-"Every Picture Tells A Story" and "That's All Right" pick up nice towards the end after starting bluesyish. -Nice bluesy rock. If it had a little more intensity it probably would get up to 5 stars
"Hello There" and "Goodnight" are kind of genius intro/outro songs -"Come On, Come On" gets into a nice fast groove -"Ain't That A Shame" has some great guitar stuff in it. I quite like the very fast paced call-and-response section -The drummer is great throughout the album -I've definitely heard "I Want You To Want Me" and "Surrender" before like on the radio or something -Very solid live album
-I like the speed pick-ups in "Break Down And Let It All Out" -I like all the cool stuff happening in "Either Way I Lose" -Very nice piano and great singing. Very high quality, just not really my style
-I like the heavy start in "Whatever Happened To Pong?" -The intro to "Freedom Rock" definitely sounds like a riff I've heard before. Also the drums are great -I like the scream/jam in "Pie In The Sky" -Generally solid
-An absolutely fantastic album -"Hello Hooray" is a great anthemic-esque track -"Elected" is a fun take on politics, and a total jam -"Billion Dollar Babies" is an incredible track. Great guitar riffs throughout, some great bass slides, catchy lyrics, and basically anything else you could want -"No More Mr. Nice Guy" sits with "School's Out" as the 2 Alice Cooper tracks I expect literally anyone to have heard -"I Love The Dead" is classic macabre Alice Cooper. Great imagery, easy to sing along chorus, some crazy breathing sound effects, and lots of fancy instrumentation, as well as a nice bit of a jam in the middle
-good bassline in "Your New Cuckoo" -"Never Recover" is quite catchy -Probably the chillest cover of "Iron Man" ever made, I also like the Black Sabbath reference in "Choke" -Solid drumming throughout -I feel like usually this would be too chill for me, but it was either just upbeat enough, or maybe there was just enough going on to make it interesting
-"Get Ready For Love" is very catchy and just great overall. Totally sounds like something right out of the 80's -"Hiding All Away" has some seriously heavy guitar that totally seems like metal, but the song seems overall in the rock category. Very cool -Great heavy drop in in "Fable of the Brown Ape" -I like the subverted expectations on the lines "Orpheus looked at his instrument/And he gave the wire a pluck/He heard a sound so beautiful/He gasped and said 'Oh my God'" -"There She Goes, My Beautiful World" jams -Some songs were pretty cool, some were less cool, but overall it was a solid album
-I like the melody rhythm in "Breaking Glass" -"A New Career in a New Town" and "Warszawa" have a pretty spooky ethereal vibe to them -Generally pretty good, just never god really epicly
Solid punk rock. Not sure how I feel about the singing style
-He really get shredding at the end of Dádrá. Actually he be shredding at the end of all of them, basically. -Even though the talking about the structure of the songs is cool, it is also an L because it eliminates it from being able to be on my study playlist
-"Tangled Up In Blue" is actually quite catchy -"Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts" was pretty good too. Story sounded pretty cool. -Generally better and more upbeat than the other Dylan albums I have heard
-Something about 'Prowler" -"Remember tomorrow" is a pretty cool ballad-type song -"Running Free" is a great, anthemic-type song. Great to, like, chant along to -"Charlotte the Harlot" is a great jam, and the vocal rhythm of the chorus is pretty cool -"Iron Maiden" from "Iron Maiden" by "Iron Maiden" -Great bass that is pretty high in the mix for metal across the whole album -Whole album is great
-"Armenia City In The Sky" is very psychadelic rock-esque -BEANS -"Odorono's" advertisement-ness is slightly flawed with how ell it fits in thematically with the rest of the album -"Tattoo" is a great little story -"Our Love Was" is a nice pretty love song, but really goes to show how even on a relatively calm song, Keith was always a madman on the drums, but it still works perfectly. He's banging away at the cymbals and doing fills all over the place and it still works -Man, I wish radio just had a few 5 second jingles between each song like on this album -"I Can See For Miles" is a pretty incredible track. Even with relatively simple lyrics and harmonies, the backing track is complex. Keith is all over the drums as always, but there's also a very interesting guitar tone that's almost like a squeaky siren. Definitely the standout track on this album -"Silas Stingy" is a very catchy track from John Entwistle that has some cool horns in there for a second -"Rael Pt.1 & Pt. 2" is a pretty cool jam, led by Keith Moon as usual, and it also hints at "Overture" and "Sparks" from Tommy -I noticed this on other early Who albums (specifically "The Who Sings My Generation"), and it applies to "The Who Sell Out" as well, but Keith's style was definitely the most developed out of the whole group. -It's The Who, I'm biased
-I like the reference to "God's Gonna Cut You Down" in "Run On" -"South Side" actually seems like a full song with choruses and some nice guitar stuff in there -idk, the songs were fine but seemed kinda simple. Catchy, but simple
-Certainly generally appealing and catchy -"Run Charlie Run," "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone," and "Do Your Thing" are good -Very nice R&B, but nothing really makes me want to come back to it
-Nice drum fill in "Prosthetics" -Cool voice effect on "Gimme a reason why I need to..." on "Diluted" -I like the bass slide things in "Eyeless" -Pretty solid chorus in "Wait And Bleed" -Cool guitar and drum(?) fill in in "Surfacing" The lyrics are also a lot clearer and make it easier to jam to. -It does seem like heaviness with no real counterpoint a lot of the time. Not sure if that criticism is actually legit. Idk, the blast beat drums as very "intense" and just fast chugging guitar kind of turns to sludge for me a lot of the time.there are moments where the "musical point" is much clearer, and I tend to like it more, but those seem to be the exception rather than the rule -However, I became more acclimated on the 2nd and 3rd listens, and my opinion definitely improved with more listening
"Breathe (In The Air)" has the classic chill, progressive/psychedelic rock, Pink Floyd Vibe to it -I do like the synth(?) riff of "On The Run" -"Time" is certainly a standout song. Definitely has a solid groove, and I how it is less-drone-like-ness than the other songs on that side of the album -In my opinion, "Money" is definitely the best song on the album, by quite a wide margin. Way more energy and groove, and the jam parts have lots more going on, more evidently and more quickly. And it gets pretty darn heavy too. -"Brain Damage" and "Eclipse" are good too -Overall very sonically interesting, even in the slower parts
-Just not the biggest fan of most of the flows/styles -there were bits of good flow in "Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber," "Mystery of Cheeseboxin'," and "Protect Ya Neck" -I did like Method Man's style, all of his stuff was nice
-I like the reference to "I Will Survive" in "Release Yo' Delf" -I like the flow in "I Get My Thang In Action" -Literally yesterday I said I looked Method Man's flow on "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)," but I didn't really like the flow on most of this. Kinda whack
-"Sutrix" do be getting groovy -The second half of "Decca" becomes really good but then it just stops after like 45 seconds and it makes me sad -"OK" kind of sounds like some anime nonsense but it gets more intense than a lot of other songs on the album so I'll let it slide -"Light" got the thumping bass and the flute-like instrument wailing -Lots of cool bits but also some slow bits but also overall solid
-I like the jam at the beginning of "Satan," it is reminiscent of The Who smashing their instruments/jamming, and it is a good jam throughout -I like the story and bass line of "Metal Baby." I also like the distorted guitar solo stuff at the end -Just like, not very exciting
-Cool guitar solo stuff happening in "Brothers Gonna Work It Out." I wish they put it a bit higher in the mix, I would think that would make it a lot cooler -Some cool rhyme scheme stuff happening in "Welcome To The Terror Dome" -Good general message and storytelling in "Burn Hollywood Burn" -Some nice stuff, but nothing really makes me want to listen more
-"Chameleon" got some cool grooves and at least 1 cool drum fill -"Watermelon Man" is definitely the weirdest one from the bunch, with that vocal recording thing as part of the main loop in the song -Lots of cool jams and grooves throughout -Pretty sure I heard the lick in there a few times
-"Ace of Spades" has an absolutely thundering and classic riff. It is also a Chad song that doesn't even rhyme lol -The riff from "Shoot You in the Back" sounds like the riff from "Watchin' You" by Kiss -"Love Me Like a Reptile," "Fast and Loose," "(We Are) The Roadcrew," "Fire Fire," and "The Chase Is Better Than the Catch" are great catchy tunes
-"Silence" is not silence smh -Some very Black Sabbath sounding notes in "Hunter" -Why is "Small" silent for like 3 minutes I literally checked did it was paused like 5 times -The synth riff in "The Rip" sounds like "We're Finally Landing" by Home, which is the song Summoning Salt uses in his videos -"Plastic" seems like a relatively strong song out of these. The cool drum fills and swooshy back and forth sounds and big bass-y synth are all solid. -The drums in "We Carry On" really help change the feel of the song even if the rest of the song is relatively similar to the rest of the album. Just the chugging drums behind it make it seem more stressed or maybe scared than relaxed -"Machine Gun" is also a lot cooler with it's drumline as well -This album was probably gonna be a 2 but "The Rip," "Plastic," "We Carry On," and "Machine Gun" saved it. The first half or so of the album was incredibly boring
-A legendary album. "Hells Bells," "Shoot To Thrill," "Back In Black," "You Shook Me All Night Long," and "Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" are all absolute rock classics -I hadn't heard "What You Do For Money Honey" and I love the part where it cuts to just singing and drumming and then goes into the guitar solo -Back In Black is legendary for many reasons, but one thing I like it the cool rhymes throughout the sonf
-"Beep Beep, Beep Beep, yeah" -The Beatles -In "Michelle" stupid idiot singer accidentally starts speaking French, the song is in ENGLISH, DUMB DUMB -I really like the synth riff thing in "I'm Looking Through You" I wish they used that sort of thing more -I like the bass riff in "The Word" even though it is only in my right ear. Also "Bird" is the word, not "Love" -It was all solid, Beatles-y music, but like nothing to poop your pants over
-I like the horns and bassline in "Steamroller Blues" -"Suite for 20 G" is cool and groovy -Other than those 2 tracks, the album was generally just fine. No real plans to revisit
-Some nice flows in "Peter Piper." I like the line "Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good" -Hey "It's Tricky" is that Tik Tok song. It's nice to actually hear the rest of it. The song actually holds up across the rest of the track too. I like the simple but interesting beat. I swear one of the dudes sounds a bit like Ace Frehley at a few points -Cool reference to Live Aid in "My Adidas." I recently listened to Live Aid and remember the Run-D.M.C.'s section -"Walk This Way (feat. Aerosmith)" is great. An awesome rendition. I like that they mixed the original guitar and drums into a back eat for their rap style -Nice guitar in "Raising Hell"
-It was The Beach Boys. Nothing really remarkable about it.
-"Young Americans" is good and catchy -I like the funky groove in "Fascination" -The cover of "Across The Universe" was cool -"Fame" is quite catchy, but not mind blowing. I like the low voice bit at the end -Idk just not the most interesting stuff from David Bowie here
-Hey, "Big Iron" is the meme song -Cool and nice little stories within the songs, even if they are basically all "I'm a cowboy, I ride a horse, oh no I got shot, and now I'm dead"
-"Twisted" has some fun vocal melodies -"Raised on Robbery" is by far the best song. The vocal harmonies, the funky backbeat, the saxophone, it's upbeat catchiness totally separate it from the rest of the album -Rest of the album was fine, but not very exciting
-"Ancodia" is pretty catchy with the upbeat backbeat and "L-O-V-E Love" line -Nice driving groove in "Pacific 202" -Lots of good grooves and stuff for an electronic album
-Parts of "All I Really Want To Do" sounds like "Mary Anne With The Shaky Hands" -Cool bass in my left ear on "It's No Use" -Woukd probably be cooler if I knew more Bob Dylan -Generally nice folk rock, but nothing really amazing -The Byrd's aren't real
-"The National Anthem" has cool bass stuff going on, and I like the saxophonery -Cool harps in "Motion Picture Soundtrack" -Some cool drum fills and a decent amount of lyrics in "Optimistic" -I know this album is pretty big and famous, but it just didn't really pull me in. The only track that really Drew in my interest was "The National Anthem"
-It was very meh and it was also Coldplay
-The piano and horns be groovin' in "Part Of A Whole." The drumming really picks up in some spots, and the trumpet too -"Minawa" sounded like "Love Reign O'er Me" with the rain sounding piano, and then "Charlie Brown" for a second -Generally solid jazz-y stuff. I'll put it on my study playlist
"Muscle In Plastic" has good bass and drums and energy and stuff -Some cool bass lines and guitar sounds in "Hollow Hills" -"Kick In The Eye" has got a nice bass and drum groove -Not a whole lot making me want to come back to it
-Pretty cool album. Good number of solid tracks. "Delicious Demon" is definitely my favorite -Pretty good. Not mind blowing, but just generally nice tracks with interesting stuff going on
-Some nice flows and catchiness in "Bandelero Desperado" -"Rough Out Here" is pretty solid. I like that it is pretty upbeat and not as repetitive, and the singing is great -"Free My Mind" is nice but also pretty repetitive
-Honestly not a lot of interesting stuff happening. Some good singing on some songs, but most of the beats were pretty boring. "Partition" was the most interesting
-"Darkness, Darkness" has an awesome distorted guitar sound -It gets kinda slow across the middle of the record -"If the world was peanut butter, we'd be sticking by each other" is a stunning lyrics from "Don't Let The Rain Bring You Down" -Cool sax and drummery in "Quicksand" -Great guitar and drum jamming in "Sham." It might be my favorite track from the album -Definitely some great moments, but needs more oomph or consistency to get to 5 stars
-Damn they actually kinda go ham in "Strange Loop" -I like the fast-paced lyrics on 'Flower" and "Johnny Sunshine" -This is stronger than the average singer songwriter album
Perfectly cromulent like folk/blues/alternative rock album, but it was pretty musically the same across the album, it never really went anywhere
-"Gimme All Your Lovin'" is such a catchy tune and the riff after the chorus is awesome -"Got Me Under Pressure" is such an awesome song and I'm surprised it isn't a bigger bit. Something about it is just so awesome. The guitar riff grooves, and the pattern of the lyrics makes it super catchy. Although, I do prefer the live version where the lyrics have a bit more oomph -"Sharp Dressed Man" is a ZZ Top Classic. Great riff, and I personally love the "...black tie (black tie)" bit. -"I Got the Six" is a totally rad song. The drum riff thing in the choruses is great, and the drumming just keeps an awesome beat behind the slick guitar work throughout. Some of these sound pretentious but it's cuz I would just be repeating myself for half these songs. Also the scream after like the second chorus is pretty crazy -"Legs" is a total classic, and the synth riff is pretty sweet, with plenty of "live" work over the top -"Thug" was actually the first song I heard from ZZ Top after knowing "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Cheap Sunglasses" for years. The syncopated slap bass stuff is so cool, it's like catchy and unpredictable. -"TV Dinners," "Dirty Dog," "If Only I Could Flag Her Down," and "Bad Girl" are all solid, but don't have some big standout feature -Overall super solid and grooving album
-Perfectly good soul funk type album, but nothing really mind blowing
-Very cool psychedelic Beatles-esque jamming on sitar and echoed/reversed vocals on "Don't Stop" -"(Song for My) Sugar Spun Sister," "Shoot You Down," and "This Is the One" all get interesting -Becomes a cool jam in "I Am the Resurrection" -Has some really cool bits but is pretty mellow in the other tracks. Overall pretty solid
-"Sympathy For The Devil" is certainly a classic. The solo is cool with the super high pitched clean melody stuff -"Street Fighting Man" is solid -Not crazy, but it does have the advantage of being The Rolling Stones
-Nice flow in "Guillotine" and "Incarcerated Scarfaces" for like a shirt amount of time -"Ice Cream" has a cool voice at the beginning -Just a not interesting rap album
-Probably one of the best electronic-type albums I've heard. Always upbeat and fast-paced with interesting and developing beats. -Nothing really stood out, but I still enjoyed listening
-"Cities" has some great back bass and groove, but I do prefer the more intense live version on 'Stop Making Sense" -"Life During Wartime" is an awesome song -The end bit of "Animals" is really cool, with the layers and layers of David Byrne singing -Memories Can't Wait is pretty cool like psychedelic stuff kinda -Just generally solid, even if the live versions are way better
-Great bass in "Emergency On Planet Earth" -I love the fast-paced lyrics on "Revolution 1993" -Very cool, quick tempo jazz stuff
-This album is pretty sweet. The guitar is shredding and the drums are awesome throughout the whole album. Definitely need to do more listening
-Pretty slick riff in-between lines in the chorus in "Invaders" -Great drum intro on "Gangland" -"Children of the Damned," "22 Acacia Avenue," and "Hallowed Be Thy Name" are absolute bangers -"The Number of the Beast" and "Run to the Hills" are probably up there in my favorite tracks of all time. Truly incredible songs. Incredible storytelling, intensity, and raw power -Obvioualy the riffs and singing are legendary, but the drumming is incredible, especially on "Run to the Hills" and the reverse cymbals to end "Hallowed Be Thy Name" if I remember correctly. Also the bass is quite strong and has some great riffs, especially for a metal album
-"Right Now" gets bangin' -"Fallen Eagle" is a good, classic country song -"Don't Look At My Shadow" has a good beat and the like guitar and violin are groovin' -"Bound to Fall" has lots o' instruments going and the harmonies are interesting -The first chunk of tracks (maybe up to like "Fallen Eagle") are pretty solid. Lots of cool instruments and stuff going on, but then it becomes a little up and down
-Pretty spiffy jazz album -Got some cool guitar at some points
-"The Beat," "Pump It Up," "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea," "Lipstick Vogue," and "Radio, Radio" are all quite good songs -"Lipstick Vogue" has an awesome drug intro and sweet bass throughout -Solid rock album, I like the bass throughout it
-"Cinnamon Girl" is catchy enough -"Round and Round (It Won't Be Long)" is pretty or whatever but it is also boring -"Down by the River" gets into cool bass and guiar -"Cowgirl in the Sand" is nice enough -Its got some nice bits and pieces, but not nearly consistently enough to really get my attention
-Generally nice jazz but just nothing exciting really happening. "Tuang Guru" had a little bit of groove to it but just overall plain.
-"Miles From Nowhere" gets moderately heavy -"But I Might Due Tonight" is a cool tune. The "you say so" part is cool -"Longer Boats" is nice enough -I like the intense-ish drum bits and the semi-yells in "On The Road To Find Out" -I want to say 4, but it is pretty darn slow and I don't really care to listen again...
-A very weak 4 honestly. Generally pleasant to listen to, but not a lot really drawing me back. Songs are catchy and fun but just not very exciting
-I'e definitely heard "Tomorrow's Just Another Day" and "Our House" before -I like the bit in "Our House" where they sing faster -"Blue Skinned Beast" is quite catchy -Generally solid rock album. Doesn't get too intense, but nice nonetheless. Would be 4 stars, but 1 star penalty for not being on Spotify and making me assemble half the album from Greatest Hits records and single releases and other random stuff. That's rude
-”To Be Young (Is to Be Sad, Is to Be High)” sounds like Bob Dylan at a few points -Generally a little slow throughout a lot of the album -I quite like the upbeat pace of “Shakedown on 9th Street.” The distorted guitar and drums are great. -Overall nice, with some nice bits, but very slow in others. Not much pulling me back to listen again
I mean, it's essentially a compilation of Christmas classics. "White Christmas," "Frosty the Snowman," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Here Comes Santa Claus," and "Silent Night" are all legendary Christmas songs lol. Admittedly, some are not classics, like "A Marshmallow World," but it is a very solid set of the "classic" Christmas songs. -Only notable/unexpected item music-wise were the pretty sick drum fills on "The Bells of St. Mary"
-”Nitro (Youth Energy)” is nice and fast and catchy with great drums -”Bad Habit” totally rips -The chorus in “Genocide” is very catchy. “Dog eat dog/Every day/On our fellow man we prey/Dog eat dog/To get by/Hope you like my genocide” -I’ve definitely heard “Come Out and Play,” specifically that “You gotta keep ‘em separated” line -Literally just a silent gap from 4:04 until 9:04 on “Smash.” The song is 10:40 and 5 entire minutes are just silent. -This has some seriously catchy and great stuff, I think it has a decent likelihood of getting a good number of listens from me. I’m going to give it 5 stars because I think it has some serious potential to get me much more into punk.
-I like the background screaming and low voice bit in the breakdown/bridge of "River Song" -The super deep baritone sax(?) on "Dreamer" is cool -"Time" has cool horns and bass groove thing going on -Those couple songs are good but the rest of the album was kinda meh
-”We Got The Beat” is pretty darn catchy -”Automatic is pretty cool as well, the start-stop bits are notable and the main riff is very psychadelicy. -The alternating bass drum/lyrics and guitar riff bit in the chorus is very nice in “Skidmarks On My Heart.” Also some great drum fills in there. -Overall solid album, not mind-blowing, but very pleasant. The songs have enough energy and enough going on to keep it interesting.
-Cool bass line in "Sumthin' Sumthin'" -Generally pleasant R&B, but nothing super exciting
-”Allergies” is pretty got dang catchy and has some splendid guitar fiddly-ness -In “When Numbers Get Serious” he is seriously lackadaisical with his arithmetic. 2×2=22? 4×4=44? These are severe mathematical errors. -”Cars Are Cars” is not only straight facts but also a nice little tune -”Think Too Much (a)” has at least 2 cool basslines, and like a typewriter sound effect that is an interesting percussive element. -A couple catchy songs, but not much that really piqued my interest to make me want to go back to listen. Still overall quality music, just not really in my wheelhouse
-Background of “Papa bonheur” sounds like the Bloons TD Music -Ok the whole album is just like reggae/dance-esque music in French lol -The bridge of “Conte de fées” actually picks up to be pretty groovy with the high pitched whatever grooving along -Very end of “Dit Jeannot” got kinda cool -The whole album is just like reggae/dance-esque music in French lol
-The horns in “The Stars Of Track And Field” were interesting. -The harmonica do be jamming on “Me and The Major," and the song is generally catchy and good -Some moderately interesting guitar riffs in “Like Dylan In The Movies,” but it is still kinda boring and slow honestly -"Judy And The Dream Of Horses" picks up to an okay pace but it's still pretty slow -Idk kinda really boring and slow I think it might be a 2
-"Jailbreak" has some solid riffs and some cool guitar stuff -"Massacre" is a total jam and also the bass slide/riff at 1:17 is gnarly -"Johnny the Fox Meets Jimmy the Weed" is just a fundamentally great song name -The transition straight from "Cowboy Song" straight into "The Boys Are Back in Town" is cool. Also, "The Boys Are Back in Town" is one of the only 2 Thin Lizzy songs I previously knew (the other being "Cold Sweat") and the bass part seems to be amped up for the live version and I quite like it. -Awesome jams in "Massacre," "Warrior," "Are You Ready," and "Suicide" -Totally awesome live rock album, will absolutely be doing more listening
-I am well aware of this album's importance, but am not smart enough to analyze jazz -I like the doo doot part in "So What"
-Every song is like acoustic guitar + man singing + one other small element like slow violins or drums or something -Honestly mega boring
-Cool jammery in "In The Flesh?" -I like the thumping in "The Happiest Days of Our Lives" -"Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" is obviously a classic -"Mother" be like "MY BALLS" -Cool bass and and jamming in general on "Young Lust" -Lots of great moments and jamming and callbacks throughout the album. I'm definitely still missing some notes about great buts in various songs. I definitely don't appreciate it enough yet but it is incredibly solid.
-"Johnny 99," "Open All Night," and "Reason to Believe" gets decently groovy. -"Johnny 99" sounds vaguely Johnny Cash-like --The harmonica in quite a few songs is cool, particularly "Johnny 99" and "Reason to Believe" -Overall just not very exciting or interesting
-"Fisherman's Blues" be like a bluegrass country jam -"We Will Not Be Lovers" has some of the thickest country-bluegrass sound I have ever heard. Some bass thing is absolutely chugging and the violin is flying -"World Party" has got some jamming and a grooving bass as well -"Blackbird" references in "Sweet Thing" -"And a Bang on the Ear" and "When Will We Be Married" were catchy enough -Pretty strong, but kind of died out in the second half of the album
-”Changes'' is obviously a pretty famous song that I’ve heard before. It’s basically guaranteed to get stuck in your head. Also, there is some cool bass going on in some parts -”Oh! You Pretty Things” is pretty good, I’ll have to relisten -”Andy Warhol” is pretty spooky and psychedelic. The whipping is cool. The whole thing is erratic but somehow fits together I think? -”Song for Bob Dylan” is better than any song Bob Dylan wrote lmao -Cool shreddy guitar in “Queen Bitch”
-”Friends of Mine” is pretty catchy and nice -”Time of the Season” is pretty nice with a cool bassline and nice mellotron jam at the end. At least I think it's a mellotron, lol -Generally nice psychedelic rock stuff, but just nothing really stands out. A pretty weak 4 but the fact that it is rock really helps it out
-"Keep on Movin'" is quite catchy -"African Dance" has a great beat and someone is jamming on some wind instrument -"Feel Free" has some chunky bass stuff -"Jazzie's Groove" is grooving with a big bassline and drum beat
-"Boplicity" is a great song title -I'm still not smart enough to analyze jazz
-literally 2 of these songs are on Spotify, so this is just a review of "The Bottle" and "Your Daddy Loves You" -"The Bottle" was an awesome song with a sweet jam and cool bass solo -"Your Daddy Loves You" was a meh R&B song -Overall can barely rate because I only listened to 2 tracks
-Cool blues jamming. I particularly like "Tiger In Your Tank" and "I've Got My Mojo Working" -Nice guitar and harmonica jamming -Some of the lyrics were pretty repetitive lol
-I liked Anderson .Paak's verse on "Price Tags" -Not many interesting flows or beats
-"Yesterday When I Was Mad" has a cool, fast backbeat and the distorted vocals add some interest -Generally pleasant pop-like music
-Totally cool bassline and jam in "Until The End Of The World" -"Zoo Station," "Even Better Than The Real Thing," "Until The End Of The World," and "The Fly" are nice heavier, hard-rock, kinda-Muse-esque songs -"Ultra Violet (Light My Way)" is the first song that was a bit boring. Just a little slow and not as intense as the others
-I like the heavier screaming at the end of "Dandy" -Generally good rock album
-"Chunga's Revenge" is a cover of the Frank Zappa song, but I could barely tell lol -"Tríptico" has this cool backing groove going on. Very chill, but stuff's going on enough to make it interesting, and it picks up as the song goes on. -I like the intense, syncopated motif in "Una Música Brutal" -"Last Tango in Paris" has like a cool funky groove and a classic French song overlaid on top of each other -"La Del Ruso" has a cool swoosh sound in it and great groove throughout -Very strong 3, but nothing crazy to really pull me back to it, but incredibly solid music
-"I Ain't The One" has cool reversed cymbals, and a great bass to go along with all the guitar jamming -I like "Tuesday's Gone" in the same way I like most ballads, which is that it's fine. -"Gimme Three Steps" is incredibly catchy and also has great bass backing up the shredding guitar -"Simple Man" is very anthemic. It's relatively simple riffs just ring out with power -That's a big old honkin' bass riff at the start of "Things Goin' On." I also really like the ragtime-esque piano. -"Mississippi Kid" is probably my least favorite on the album. Just kinda mellow. -"Poison Whiskey is a solid groove of a song, with all the bits have been cited for the previous songs, ie solid guitar riffs, great bass and drums, and nice piano jams to go along with it -"Free Bird" is obviously an absolutely epic song. The song starts mellow and increases in intensity at a gradual, but not snail-like pace, and then the guitar solo/band jam totally rips. I think the solo is hugely aided by the rest of the band playing along and supporting, making the whole solo more epic than if it were left as pure guitar. I especially love the drum accents in between guitar riffs.
-"The Hanging Garden" has a great backing rhythm to drive it along -"Pornography" definitely creates quite the spooky vibe -Fine album but like nothing really stood out, like all the songs felt the same.
-I like all the rock references in "Rocket" -"Run Riot," which had great drum-heavy parts, stood out -Obvioualy I've heard "Pour Some Sugar On Me" -The Wikipedia said every song was written as a potential single, and I can definitely hear that. Every song is very anthemic and independent. A solid collection of fun ahir metal tracks
-"Big Exit," "The Whores Hustle And The Hustlers Whore," and "Kamikaze" are the strongest tracks. All are cool alt-rock jams. -A strong 3, but nothing really stood out. No crazy guitar jams, or radical drum beats, just generally nice music with quality singing, so nothing grating. Much preferred to the other PJ Harvey album I had, which was very boring.
-"God's Song (That's Why I Love Mankind)" and "Political Science" have particularly interesting themes -"Lonely At The Top" was nice enough I guess -The songs on this album all have a major problem and that is that they are by Randy Newman, but aren't "You've Got a Friend in Me" and we're featured in a beloved movie from my childhood
-"Bones" gets into a nice jam -"My Iron Lung" has some cool distortion -"Black Star" and "The Bends" got decently heavy -I know this album is mega popular but I just didn't really see it. Bits and pieces were cool, but in-between was just not crazy interesting. I liked the album more than "Kid A" by them, but this really didn't blow me away
-Holy crap Lois why does the "We'll Be Right Back" meme continue for 8 minutes? -This album is a little weird, it's like half big epic songs and half shirt little dinky ones. Still pretty cool. Great jams and groove and bass and stuff throughout -I particularly like "Roundabout" and "Long Distance Runaround" -"South Side of the Sky," "Heart of the Sunrise," and "America" are great too -I plan to do plenty more listening, so I think that has just bumped it into the 5 star range
-Cool jam bits in "Colin Zeal," "Chemical World," and "Oily Water." I especially liked the ramp up at the end of "Chemical World" -Generally kinda not-that-exciting alt/pop rock. -Weak 4
-Kinda pretty darn boring not gonna lie. Just a kind of sad, ethereal vibe, nothing really stood out in my listen. Idk if I'm missing something here but I see no reason to even bother giving another listen to re-evaluate -I be listening to The Cure..."At Night" Some critiques of song names: -"Three is not the 3rd song -"The Final Sound" is not the final sound -"Seventeen Seconds" is not seventeen seconds long
-Sweet bass groove in "Takeover." Also it took a second listen but I noticed the sampling of the Doors on the second listen -I like the very triumphant beat and lyrics to "U Don't Know" -Mu favorite track was "Renegade," because I like Eminem and he is on that track. I also like how JAY-Z totally changed his flow to be more rhyme-scheme based to keep up with Eminem -Why we're some of my favorite rhymes and flows on the hidden track "Girls, Girls, Girls (Part 2)?" -Overall the beats were solid, although the flow wasn't my personal favorite
If y'ain't on Spotify, y'ain't real. Exist to get a rating lmao
-"Crosseyed and Painless" is super catchy with the main driving bassline, but within that main groove there's just a bunch of little parts. The main drums, the extra little background drums, the main bass, the guitar, lots of guitar flourishes, the synth, plus whatever other instruments I'm missing all blend to a really cool riff. -The repeating lines in "The Great Curve" almost become a rhythm because they are so consistent and overlapping -"Houses in Motion" has a great main riff. The elephant (?) solo at the end is pretty cool too -Album gets very spooky at the end -Solid tracks with a couple absolute bangers
-I like the "doo doo bing bong ping ding bong" part in "Buscando Guayaba" -Holy crap Lois they referenced "Despacito" in "Pedro Navajo" -I like the big old bass that comes in in "Maria Lionza" -It would probably be a 4 if it was in my genre of music, it just isn't really my jam, but it is all quality
-In "Offence" there is a bar that says "Got my team on deck taking out all pawns/And my knight got your queen in check, mate" which is a cool chess bar that *almost* makes sense -"Offence" also has a cool bass slide that's cool, and some solid fast flows -Oh, it's the "Venom" TikTok song. Also some great speedy bars in that song. Actually, the main part that is the TikTok sound is actually the least interesting part. The verses have great flow and rhymes, and the rap has a topic (not just rhyming random words and phrases) -"101 FM" is a bit too bri*ish for me" -Most tracks are like medium good, with "Offence" and "Venom" being solid. Not quite consistent enough for a 4, but one of the strongest hip hop albums I've heard in my opinion
-He definitely be groovin' and jivin' on the sax and/or trumpet. Overall just a bunch of fun tracks with lots of energy -"(I'll Be Glad When You're Dead) You Rascal You" is pretty savage
-Pretty Nice alternative rock. It's got a cool sound. Nothing mind blowing, but solid and engaging enough. Probably a lower 4
-I got really confused because I had heard the lyrics of "Into My Arms" somewhere before. Turns out Roger Daltrey covered it on his album. -Songs are fine, nothing really stood out
-"LMK" is pretty catchy -Generally pleasant but not really my style. Nothing in particular made it stand out
-"Hurt" is obviously the popular ones and quite emotional. The change in perspective on the lyrics from Trent Reznor's heroin addiction to Johnny Cash's old age is very interesting. -I actually quite like "I Hung My Head" and "Tear Stained Letter" -Some of the songs get really sparse and slow for me, especially in the back half -Pretty good overall
-"Penitentiary Philosophy" is pretty catchy will a cool, groovin', instrumental. Great drumming in particular. Honestly it gets pretty heavy at the end -"...& On" has some very cool parts, specifically the quiet, fast-singing parts -The synth-harmonized parts in "Kiss Me On My Neck" are quite catchy -Overall, album is quite nice soul/funk stuff. A couple great tracks, some kinda boring. I think I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt and bump it from a 3 to a 4
-Ayyo they really titled "Plainsong" accurately cuz this song do be plain -"Disintegration" is like one tick up on the intensity scale -Overall it's like not bad and it is rock but it is mega boring and the songs all just sit in the same musical area that isn't very interesting to me
-Very solid groovy instrumental. I like the keyboard and trumpet parts
Ain't on Spotify RIP
-"Good Times Roll," "My best Friend's Girl," "Just What I Needed," 'Don't Cha Stop," and "You're All I've Got Tonight" are all classic radio hits of various sizes. All very catchy and fun -"I'm in Touch with Your World" has an unexpected change to some spookyness, very cool -All greeat, totally class rock tracks
-4 might be a bit high, probably a low 4, but it's been my favorite hip hop album so far, I think -Pretty cool instrumentals overall I like the use of stereo in quite a few of the tracks -Fun fast rhyme on "Renegades of Funk - The Latin Remix" -Great bass lines in "Who You Funkin' With?" and "They made A Mistake"
-Generally nice songs -"Paranoia Blues" is my favorite, had good thumping drums and heavier vocals -Probably a really high 3, but nothing to really draw me back
-"16 Shells From A 30.6" is a pretty sweet jam. Instrumentation is zooming and singer's belting out the lyrics -Not sure why, but I like the xylophone on "Swordfishtrombone." Maybe cuz it is Zappa-esque -"Down, Down, Down" totally wails -Drums on "Trouble's Braids" are kind of sick -I liked it more than the "Nighthawks At The Diner" album, and maybe a few more songs like "16 Shells From A 30.6" and "Down, Down, Down" would bump it to a 4
-An awesome industrial metal album -"Heresy," "Closer," "Ruiner," "I Do Not Want This," and "Eraser" stand out as really strong tracks
-That riff in "Rockin' Stroll" sounds like "The Trooper" by Iron Maiden -I totally interpreted the lyrics of "Frank Mills" to say that George Harrison was a drummer ("He was last seen with his friend, a drummer / He resembles George Harrison of The Beatles") -Pretty nice alternative rock
-Cool keyboards going in the left ear in "Weekend Wars" -Cool vibes in "4th Dimensional Transition" and "Moons, Birds & Monsters" -Love the end of "The Handshake" -some very respectable musical thingies happening here
-I like the Old Western sound of "The Age Of Understandment" -Quote solid rock/alt-rock album. Nice consistent, quick songs
-Woah, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" is like Weird Al Yankovic's "Girls Just Want toHave Lunch" but it's the original -"She Bop" is pretty catchy -I like the kinda spooky bits of "Yeah Yeah"
-An interesting enough alt rock album, with also hints of a blues-y sound in a few songs. -I liked the more rock-focused vibe of the first few songs. "Criminal" was probably my favorite -"Carrion" was a good ending track. Cool vibes in that one.
-The synced up chorus in "If You Only Knew" and "Break" were both catchy -Whoever's got the deep voice is great. Especially the rhyme scheme in "A Day Races." Although pretty much everyone had great rhyme schemes in that one -In "A Day At The Races" one bar is "You're out of your league like Jordan in baseball" and that's a solid bar right there. also the bass line is great -Gnarly rhymes in "High Fidelity" -In "Sum Of Us" he says 'Seeing more demons than Gene Simmons" -"A Day At The Races," "After School Special," High Fidelity," and "Sum of Us" are all really strong tracks with great rhyme schemes and flows -The best rap/hip hop album I've had so far
-"Around The World" and "Parallel Universe" get kinda heavy at the end -"Purple Stain" is quite catchy, the stutter-style lyrics really grab your attention -"Right on Time" is a cool alternation of slow-style lyrics and blazing-fast lyrics. The bass is flying with a cool bassline through the whole thing. -"Get on Top," "Emit Remmus," "I Like Dirt," "Purple Stain" and "Right on Time" are all stand out songs -Great album, all the songs are interesting and most are very good. 5 stars!
-In this house, we criticize consumerism when we sing the song 'Shopping" -"Shopping," "Hit Music," "It's a Sin," and "heart" were all catchy enough. Most of the rest of the album was pleasant but nothing really stood out, didn't get too intense
-Hwatever vocal effect (duplicates?) On the lyrics "We are the original people / And we don't believe in evil" in "Stop Dem" is pretty cool. Also a chill drum-based backseat and bass line -"Bow" has been the stand out song so far. Cool afro-beat vibe, but also mixing in electronic music and like a rock and roll guitar -There were a few okay tracks, with "Bow" really standing out, but much of the rest was pretty weak
-Mega Garfield Vibes in "Monday Monday" -"Monday Monday" and "Straight Shooter" stood out the best -Overall nice calm-rock sound with harmonies
-Very solid punk rock. Lots of great, fun riffs and tunes -Definitely heard "Hate To Say I Told You So" in 'Weird Al" Yankovic's "Angry White Boy Polka" -He gets going quite fast in "Untutored Youth" -"Hate To Say I Told You So," "Supply And Demand," "A.K.A. I-D-I-O-T," and "Automatic Schmuck" all stood out slightly as great track, but the album is quite consistent.
-"Dime Western" has a riff that sound like a Dream Theater riff -Actually I think it sounds like the riff from "Heaven On Their Minds" from "Jesus Christ Superstar" -Very cool psychedelic-Beatles-esque-sitar-like stuff going on in "halo of Ashes" -"Gospel Plow" starts spooky and then picks up in quite a cool way -Overall nice album with some cool spooky-slowish rock with some nice heavier moments throughout
-Well it certainly was ethereal -Idk if I'm just not being super nice to this album but nothing friggin' happened
-pretty nice groovy stuff, but nothing to go crazy over -i like the high-pitched backing vocals -not as strong as his "Pusherman" album
-A lot more soul than rock -Every song was like the dang same, kinda reminded me of some old Christmas song -Got kinda tedious just being the same sort of song over and over again without any real builds of energy or anything
-Every nice soul/R&B with a powerful voice to give it some energy -"Chain of Fools," "Money Won't Change You," and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" were all very strong -She really gets to belting it out in "Good to Me as I am to You" -Also quite a few cool bass lines and other instrument parts throughout. I like the brass sections as well
-An incredible album -"School's Out" is in the uppermost echelon of songs that I just expect everyone to know/have heard. It's also a banger. Incredible opening riff, iconic and relatable lyrics, and the hilarious "We can't even think of a word that rhymes" lyric. -The rest of the album is super cool as well, with great instrumentals to back intriguing mini-story lyrics.
-I like the bassline and low voice singing in "Shining Star." It's also generally a catchy song -Generally solid soul/funky songs with cool bass lines and catchy in general
-Pretty nice rock album -Couple parts sounded Beatles-like -Quick, Pleasent tracks -Notjing stood out like crazy, but it was all nice rock
-I like the guitar and keyboard grooves in "Sleeping Gas" -"Went Crazy" has a cool bassline and catchy chorus -I like the drum/guitar riff in "Bouncing Babies" -Strong 3, Weak 4?
-Able to find 5/8 songs on Spotify. Deducted a point. -Nice soul music with great singing and solid instrumentals. Never got too crazy or anything. -Potentially 3 stars if the album was on Spotify
Honestly at first this album seemed fine but it slowly got more and more annoying. Obviously I can't understand any of it, but it just seemed like the same guitar combo thing + nasally singing for well over an hour. It literally was annoying to listen to eventually. It felt like I was in a loop listening to the same not very interesting song
-Cool jams with guitar, piano, drums, and assorted other instruments in "Miss Judy's Farm," "Debris," "Memphis," 'too Bad," and "That's All You Need." -"Debris" is reminding me a bit of Bob Dylan -Very solid blues-y rock album
-A nice enough folk-ish album -Some very good singing, but other than that nothing really kicked into another gear or caught my ear
-"Black Steel" gets into quite a jam -Basically the rest of the album is pretty boring, kind of goes off into nothing-tangent things. Basically nothing caught my interest, it almost sounded like music being played in the next room over. Personally wish more of it had been like "Black Steel." There were bits of intrigue in "Abbaton Fat Tracks" and "Brand New You're Retro" but they never really built on the creepy vibe they had. -I thought I was going to give a 4 around listening to "Black Steel," but then as the rest of the album didn't really get anywhere close to that energy level I thought about giving it a 3, but now I think it is gonna get a 2 because there was literally just that one song that was interesting, and even though it was in the vicinity of rock that I usually like, the whole thing was pretty dull and other than "Black Steel," the interestign parts never got a good resolution.
"(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" is very catchy with the super speedy back beat and has a super cool bass jam in the middle -First couple tracks were pretty strong, back half wasn't as good. Whole thing gave me Talking Heads and David Bowie vibes
First two tracks are pretty heavy ("You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side" and "Glamorous Glue") but the rest is a bit more chill. Not quite as good as the other Morrissey album I had ("You Are The Quarry")
-The singer in "Fat Lady Wrestlers" sounds a bit like Ace Frehley -Overall a pretty nice funk/dance/rock-ish album. Generally nice. Nothing was mind-blowing, but the energy was good. Probably a soft 4 star album.
-Very solid blues album -Lots of great songs that started calm and built to a climactic jam/finish. The songs were not stagnant and boring which I highly appreciate, lots of instruments helped in the jam as well.
-The part in "White Winter Hymnal" where everything comes in louder is cool -Idk there were cool bits and pieces but nothing built to any cool climaxes or anything
-A nice album, but not really in my style -some pretty cool stuff happening in lots of the instrumentals, particularly in "Ray Of Light" and "Sky Fits Heaven." Some stuff sounded industrial/Nine Inch Nails like.
-I swear I recognize like 5 riffs from "Penguin Cafe Single" -A lot of wonkyness but also some bass action in "Milk" -It was kind of interesting, but mostly weird. The strongest song was definitely "Penguin Cafe Single"
-Strong jam in "Hideaway" -very cool bluesy-rocky album with lots of cool riffs from lots of instruments (guitar, harmonica, drums, etc.) -Tracks build enough to keep everything interesting, no total lulls where the song is just slow and boring for an extended period of time
-The electronic drumbeats really keep the intensity going through the album -"Frankie Teardrop" is very Alice Cooper-esque. Or maybe Alice Cooper is very "Frankie Teardrop"-esque. Also the scream when Frankie kills himself is pretty crazy. (Spoiler alert)
-"De Camino a La Vereda" sounds like every song I've ever heard in a Mexican restaurant. Actually like half the album sounds like every song I've ever heard in a Mexican resturant
-A totally groovin' riff opens up and continues through "Mick's Blessings" -some violent genre changes between "A Gospel," "Strength of Your Nature," and "You're The Best Thing" -Hinestly the instrumental songs ("Mick's Blessings," "Dropping Bombs On The Whitehouse," and "Council Meetin'") were the best songs. They had solid jams. The rest of the tracks didn't really keep up the energy
-Generally solid rock+ piano with a nice blues feel -Generally solid tracks with good energy dynamics (maybe a little low for my taste) up until "Cut Across Shorty" -"Cut Across Shorty" is probably my favorite track on the album. Really high energy with a great guitar/piano riff/jam -Right after "Cut Across Shorty," there was "Lady Day" and Jo's Lament" which were both mega boring and slow -Luckily the album finished off well on "You're My Girl (I Don't Want To Discuss It)," which is second best to "Cut Across Shorty" -Probably not as strong as the other Rod Stewart album I had, "Every Picture Tells A Story" -Probably a sketchy 4
-Opening track, "Dealer" is probably the strongest on the album. Solid fun synth-y-ish stuff going on. reminded me of some parts of stuff from the 'Who Are You" album by The Who. -Most of the rest of the album is kind of boring and low-energy. "Dancing" is nice, and "Big Muff" has some okay bits. -Most is pretty slow, boring songs. -"Small Hours" borders on like, AI-generated soothing ASMR music. Just nothing happening at all.
-I really like the drum groove carrying "Motherless Children." Overall it's guy a great riff that mixes between drums, guitar, and piano -"Get Ready" and "Willie And The Hand Jive" were interesting enough -"I Shot The Sheriff" is the best track in the album, although a lot of that is probably due to familiarity. But I like the multi-singer setup and just great riffs and catchiness overall. -Rest of the album is kind of boring blues-rock. Really "I Shit The Sheriff" stands out as great, "Motherless Children" is pretty good, and the rest is meh. I think it is getting 3 stars, surprisingly enough
-"Respect" is obviously super famous and a top quality song -"Dr. Feelgood (Love Is a Serious Business)" is not related to "Dr. Feelgood" by Mötley Crüe at all. -"Dr. Feelgood (Love Is a Serious Business)," "Good Times," "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man," 'Save Me," and "A Change Is Gonna Come" are all relatively upbeat tracks (compared to some of the earlier more ballad-like songs) -Generally Aretha Franklin always balanced the calm, sad parts of songs with strong, powerful finishes that stops entire songs from being low-energy. her band is always consistent with keeping a strong background top not just leave it as her voice, which is obviously great and powerful and handles all the songs beautifully.
-first 3 tracks are kind of nice, but not particularly exciting -"Meus Filhos, Meu Tesouro" totally kicks into a funky groove that's pretty sweet -I read on Wikipedia that Rod Stewart Got sued because "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" sounded like "Taj Mahal," and it really does, like, a lot, lol. -"A História de Jorge" is pretty fun, and I can actually sing along when he says "Jorge." -"Cavaleiro do Cavalo Imaculado" starts off with a ripping bass line and then cool drums get thrown on top of that. Sadly they kind of go to the background for a calmer vocal delivery. But the intro was pretty fun. -"África Brasil (Zumbi)" gets some cool yell-y vocals -This had some sparks of really cool moments, but they were pretty spread out, and as the album is in Portuguese it is a bit harder for me to follow. If more of the album was like those cool moments and/or it was in English, I could see it potentially bumping up to a 4 or a 5
-"P-Funk (Wants To get Funked Up)" has a cool intro story, with an alien funk ship taking over your radio and playing funky music. It's also super catchy during the singing parts. -"Mothership Connection (Star Child)" is a just great, grooving funk song -"Unfunky UFO" starts off with a thumping drum, and then all the other instruments come in for a big, fat, beefy, funky sound. The worbler on the bass, or whatever that effect is called, is cranked up. The guitar, horns, and everything else sounds fantastic. It's the highlight of the album so far. -"Supergroovalisticprofunkstication (The Bumps Bump)" may very well be the best song name across all 1001 Albums. -"Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)" is a great song, and it has this super cool, deep-bass singer during some parts. Very fun. -"Night Of The Thumpasorus People's" is nice and funky (as expected) and has some great lyrics ("Gaga googa ga ga googa") -A great funk album that I thoroughly enjoyed, it never got boring. I plan on listening more in the future!
It's Bob Marley. It sounded like Bob Marley. Nothing really blew my socks off., it was reggae. It was nice enough, but not really my thing
-I mean, it just sounds like an album from the 50's basically -It's nice, but just not interesting -The first version of "Love Hurts" is on there -"Lucille" has a pretty cool riff -Other than those tracks it seems pretty generic
-Generally seems like every country album. Not too much bro-country theming but it sounds like completely generic country -Woah "Buenos Noches From a Lonely Room (She Wore Red Dresses)" just has murder out of nowhere -Acvording to the Wikipedia that murder was actually building up over the last 5 songs but on re-listen it still didn't really stand out to me -Third day in a row where the music wasn't unpleasant but the genre is just not that interesting ("Natty Dread" by Bob Marley & the Wailers (reggae) and "A Date With The Every Brothers" by The Every Brothers (old school 50's-ish rock) (I missed "Me Against The World" by 2Pac))
-Obviously, "Mr. Blue Sky" and "Sweet Talkin' Woman" are quite famous songs from this album. -One of my favorites is "Turn to Stone," especially the fast part where they say "Yes, I'm turnin' to stone/'Cause you ain't coming home/Why ain't you comin' home/If I'm turnin' to stone/You've been gone for so long/And I can't carry on/Yes, I'm turnin', I'm turnin'/I'm turnin' to stone" -"Night In The City" also stands out as a strong, catchy song. -Overall a very cool rock album with lots of keyboard and vocoder and multi-singer-harmony parts to give it a unique sound.
-All the songs are good enough, just some are really repetitive, just saying the title or the main chorus line over and over again -The line about "party like it's 1999" reminds me of Weird Al's line from Amish Paradise where he says "Tonight we're gonna party like it is 1899." I assume Al is referencing this song or both are referencing a common phrase from the time -"Little Red Corvette" is cool, it's obviously one of Prince's more popular tunes -"D.M.S.R." was my other favorite with "Little Red Corvette" It just seemed fun and catchy. -Sone of the songs towards the end of the album have really quiet vocals for some reason -It sounds like I hated this album, but I enjoyed it lol
-Honestly very boring -The only point that stood out in the album was the passion in the chorus of "My Oh My" -Everything was sonically just very plain and boring
-Lots of strong bass + keyboard grooves. I particularly like the groove in "Goodbye Toulouse." The riff in "Sometimes" is quite good as well -I like the fast but in "London Lady" when they say "Plastic's real when you're real sick" over and over -The lyrics and some of the instrumental on "Princess of Streets" gets quite heavy -The drum/guitar breakdowns in "Hanging Around" and very cool -Great bass/keyboard intro on "Peaches." The main riff is also totally sweet. Also the lines "Down on the beaches, just look at all the peaches" are pretty funny and catchy -This album has great instrumentation and lyrics throughout, it is very close to being a 5. Everything was great, it was just missing some special factor to kick it up a notch
-"How Could I Just Kill A Man" and "light Another are pretty catchy -Crazy bass intro on "Real Estate" -"Psycobetabuckdown" has a very cool digital robot-y intro/beat. Also parts of it remind me of the Red Hot Chili Peppers -Cool instrumental on "Tres Equis." The mix of horns and the spooky guitar sounds almost Mexican/wild westish or something. When the intro begins it does not sound like a rap song at all -Overall one of the stronger rap albums I've had. I'd say its potentially bordering on 4 star territory.
-Slick bass riff in "O My God" -"Mother" comes in strong with a crazy, driving Indian-influenced riff -"Every Breath You Take" is the popular tunes off of this one lol. It's good enough -"Tea In The Sahara" has quite a complex drum beat but it is still kinda boring -Dang "Murder By Numbers" honestly sounds pretty happy but the lyrics are quite dark -Couple great tracks, rest are decent enough tracks. I think the album's best songs are "Mother," "O My God," and "Murder By Numbers"
-Fun upbeat groove in "Rockin' Around (With You)" -I like the emotion in the the word "breakdown" and some of the slick guitar riffs in "Breakdown" -The little breakdown/bridge in "Fooled Again (I Don't Like It)" was quite cool, I wish it had continued for longer than like 3 seconds -All pretty nice tracks
-Did not hear the sound of even one goddamn pet -Honestly not as mind blowing as it is claimed to be. The songs are supposed to be super complex but I don't know if I'm cracked out of my mind but they don't seem that crazy to me. -"Wouldn't It Be Nice" is nice, but it is also the only song I had heard from the album before. the only other song that stood out in any capacity was "Sloop John B" -Just not super crazy
-In general, solid Emerson, Lake & Palmer jams. Lots of weird and interesting keyboard and drum rhythms and things. "Are You Ready Eddy?" stood out as being catchy but that might be because it repeats the title a lot and is last. In any case, many fun parts, but nothing standing out as insanely cool to boost it to 5 stars
-"When Will They Shoot" has great, meaningful bars. I like the intense, shout delivery -"Wicked" has the cool fast bars and Ice Cube has good flow throughout -"Now I Gotta Wet 'Cha" has a pretty cool vocal loop going in the background. It's pretty catchy and I find the concept kind of funny -I like the multi-phase "Say Hi To The Bad Guy." Also that cop should have known to not mess with another man's donuts -Overall, I like the more shouty-lyriced songs. The other songs didn't have quite as interesting of flow. Pretty close to a 4, but just not enough strong tracks
-"Black Dog" kicks in with the famous vocal intro and a killer riff -"Rock and Roll" is a ripping rock classic -"The Battle Of Evermore" is a little slow in my opinion -I know "Stairway to Heaven" is like the most perfect rock song of all time, but I just don't get it. The build just doesn't pay off for me. The buildup is like 4 minutes for it to just be a jam that I would say is weaker than "Black Dog" or "Rock and Roll." It's not terrible or anything, but just too slow of a build and not enough payoff for it to be praised to the level it is, in my opinion -"Misty Mountain Hop" is fun, and the vocal rhythms are catchy and interesting -"Four Sticks" and "When the Levee Breaks" were strong -Overall great rock album, both only 2 or 3 tracks kinda slacking in my opinion. Some of the most classic classic rock songs are "Black Dog" and "Rock and Roll"
-Actually gets to a solid level of jam with the sax and drums about halfway through "Pt. III - Pursuance" -It is kinda boring for like 15 minutes, then cool for 5, then boring for the next 10. Bad ratio, dude
-"Silence Kid" is a cool enough song -"5-4=Unity" stood out as the most musically interesting song, probably because it is instrumental so the instruments actually had to do something. -Most o9f the instrumental parts seemed like dead basic to me, and the singing was fine I guess. just not a particularly inspiring album.
-"Kelly's Blues" comes in heavy. It's also got a sweet bass line. Then the scream and bridge jam are totally awesome -"A Trick of the Light" is clearly a rip off of "Trick Of The Light" by The Who -"Holy Water" is a catchy track with quite cool instrumentation -"Vagabond Holes" is just a solid, catchy tune. Nice upbeat drums and simple lyrics seemed to make it stand out -Overall solid enough. Probably a low-mid tier 4. If more songs had a little more oomph like "Kelly's Blues" it could have been higher
-Something a little spooky about low voice in "Way over Yonder in the Minor Key" -"Hoodoo Voodoo" gets some upbeat honky tonkin -"She Came Along to Me" -Something about "Christ For President"? -"I Guess I Planted" has some uniony stuff -Some nice tracks there, but overall not my style
-"Sunflower" is a solid jam -"Can You Heal Us (Holy Man)" and Has My Fire Really Gone Out?" both become great jams. Also, "5th Season gets into a full jam with keyboard and stuff -"Country" is calmer but has appropriate dynamic changes. Same with "Shadow Of The Sun" -"Hung Up" is fun as well -Only a couple songs that are a bit slow, overall very strong -THIS is how you do softer rock, with actual dynamic changes and not just being slow and boring for the entire album
-"Genesis Hall" and "Autopsy" had a bit of a spooky vibe, but maybe that's just what folk and/or this band sounds like and I'm stupid -"Si tu dois partir" has the horrible flaw of being in French (🤮) -"A Sailor's Life" was kind of slow/standard for the album for like 5 minutes, but the drums and bass have been picking up into a solid jam...I wish it didn't start so late in, or the song had been a little more interesting in the beginning -"Cajun Woman" is an awesome, upbeat, fast paced track! Rhythm section is shredding, I believe I heard an accordion going, and some very slidey guitar is ripping away as well. By far the best song on the album -"Percy's Song" kind of builds up but it mostly just is the same thing but louder -If there were more track like the jam in "A Sailor's Life" and "Cajun Woman," this could definitely be a 4 or maybe a 5 star album, but there's too much in it that is meh
-Nice funky beat in "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" -Nice fast beat and trumpetology in "Workin' Day and Night" -Fat bass in "Get on the Floor" -Fun funk disco in "Burn This Disco Down" -I actually didn't like his singing that much, or at least, I liked most of the other parts of the song better
-"Bitter Sweet Symphony" was pleasant -"The Rolling People" gets pretty heavy -End of "Weeping Willow" with the echoey vocals under the main vocals is cool -Super cool and heavy in "Come On." The mix of the guitar and keyboard and drums grooving along is super solid -I really hate hidden tracks in this style. "Come On" is a great track but there's just 6 of silence before the "Deep Freeze - Hidden Track" starts -The hidden track, "Deep Freeze - Hidden Track" is an interesting spooky, computery, squeaky thingy -Overall, cool slightly chiller alt-rock album. Does not fall into the common pitfalls of some music like this where it is just super boring. There's enough dynamics and instrumentation and stuff to keep it interesting
-Fast high hats & nice singing in "So Tough" -Cool bass groove and catchy chorus in "FM" (song that says "Frequent Mutilation" a bunch) -"Adventures Close To Home" has some catchy bass and an interesting enough baseline -"I Heard It Through The Grapevine" has a very strong bass line and I like the passion in the lyrics of the chorus, as well as the bongo blast in a later chorus -"Liebe And Romanze" was actually a pretty cool slow, grooving instrumental. I actually liked the 2 bonus tracks the most... -A weaker 4, but pleasant and interesting ideas. I don't have much desire to go back but I feel it separated itself from the 3's enough
You have to be on Spotify to exist. It's a shame since the bit I listened to on YouTube sounded pretty cool
-"One Step Closer" is nice and heavy, very easy to sing along to on your first listen. I also really like the chorus. Maybe it's the alternating lines with long, extended notes and then faster lines? It's cool -"Crawling" has the classic "Crawling in my skin / These sounds, they will not heal" -The vocal distortions on the screams throughout "By Myself" are pretty crazy -"In the End" doesn't really stand out as a track other than the fact I am already very familiar with it. Maybe it's just the most digestible, which made it the most popular track? I'd say I like "One Step Closer" or "Crawling" more. Not a bad song, just not sure why it's the mega-popular one over the others -Big heavy intro in "A Place for My Head" -Basically all solid tracks. Keeps great energy throughout without getting boring. Lots of fun riffs and vocal melodies. Solid album
-Oh God, I have not enjoyed Leonard Cohen's albums in the past ("Songs from Leonard Cohen" and "Songs From A Room" (both got 2 stars)) Wikipedia says that this has some of his biggest songs, so I'm hoping for the best -Good start. "First We Take Manhattan" has a cool, creepy vibe with the electronic beat going and the low voice singing. Actually reminds me of David Bowie's "Earthling" album, which I really enjoy. The song creates a cool scene in my head -I don't really like how much the backbeat slowed down for "Ain't No Cure For Love" and "Everybody Knows," but the low voice singing is still nice -The low singing is really helping this album. The drop on the word "man" in "I'm Your Man" is cool -Woah, "Jazz Police" has a crazy driving synth riff. That was pretty cool. It kind of does towards the end? -"First We Take Manhattan" and "Jazz Police" were definitely the standout track with their faster, more interesting instrumental. The rest of the instrumentals were slower and more plain. The best part about the other tracks was his low singing which is always fun. Congrats Leonard Cohen, you got your first 3 star album. A weak 3, but a 3 nonetheless. It was generally tolerable, with two nice tracks.
-Generally nicer rap than most of the early 90's rap I've gotten before. Much better and interesting flow -However, still not the most interesting stuff. The best stuff came from Busta Rhymes's guest verse on the last track. -Nithing really draws me to listen to this album again
-"Psychosocial" is definitely a strong track, a good mix of the blast-beat style metal and more conventional metal sections -"Dead Memories" and "Vendetta" are both very nice and heavy without being goop. Having it not be entirely blast-beat-y full boar actually comes across as heavier for me because it is clearer to me -The big drum fill to guitar solo in "All Hope Is Gone" is pretty sweet. Probably my favorite musical moment in the album. Sadly the rest of the song is kind of goopy -Luckily most of the album has a good balance of not turning into goop. Just the first two tracks were goopy for me -Not my main metal genre, but pretty much all the songs has a fun riff or vocal melody or something to grab into to make the song interesting -goop
-"Hard Coming Love" has a pretty cool bass/synth/drum intro Great kick in during "Stranded In Time" -Overall okay experimental rock. Lots of it was only kind of interesting
-Some kinda cool and spooky vocal effects and harmonies in "Patterns." Also the backing drums are cool -I like the upbeat pace of "The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine." The drums are also kind of shredding -Woah the synth kinda go crazy in "A Simple Desultory Philippic." Also lots of pop culture references that I at least kinda get. Also Bob Dylan parody thrown in there -I like how everything is thumping at the same time in "A Poem on the Underground Wall" -"7 O'Clock News / Silent Night" is pretty spooky combo of, well, the news and "Silent Night" -Nice, with some interesting points, but other than "A Simple Desultory Philippic" there is nothing that makes me want to listen to any part of the album again
-This album was sold as an NFT. L. -Was able to find a live version of "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang" and it was fine -If you don't exist on Spotify, you don't exist, also NFT L
-"To Be Someone (Didn't We Have a Nice Time)" has a nice strong, catchy chorus that was giving me Cheap Trick vibes -They like writing songs with people's names, like "Mr. Clean," "David Watts," and "Billy Hunt" -"Billy Hunt" is quite catchy, probably because they say "Billy Hunt" about 1000 times. Also the end jame with the drums going is fun -Bass-groovy bridge in "It's Too Bad" is fun -"'A' Bomb in Wardour Street" has some nice distorted guitar and is a nice jam -"Down In A Tube Station At Midnight" is giving me punk vibes and it also has some sweet bass riffs backed up by flying high hats -Overall very nice rock album. A bunch of short, strong tracks
-Ok enough country rock -Not actively unpleasant -That's about all I got
-Aggressively plain pop-electronic-ish music -Literally like nothing notable happened -Woukd usually get a 3 but it was aggressively boring and I did not even want to continue to the next song
-"Baba O'Riley" opens up the album unimaginably strong with the now iconic, but also highly detailed and interesting synthesizer-y riff, which then becomes the triumphant bum-bum-bum's. Dalteey's vocals are ripping and every instrument is just perfectly melding together into simple but highly intricate rhythms. The finale of the iconic "Teenage Wasteland" lines, then a guitar solo that transitions into a violin solo sounds crazy but the song is incredible. Whatever I'll stop explaining it is a famously a very good song -"Bargain" is a banger track that strikes a great balance between being ballad-y and being a rocking track. The sections sung by Roger are super energetic and feel like a determined protagonist, and the Townshend verses sound somber and hopeful, basically like saying any price would be a bargain to get you -"Love Ain't For Keeping" is a solid track but if I'm being honest it doesn't blow my nuts off. The rest of the album is incredibly strong competition so not standing out on the album is barely a negative quality a song can have -"My Wife" is possibly the quintessential Entwistle track. Very funny exaggerated version of a fight with your wife. It's also totally catchy, Entwistle gives a great vocal performance (especially on live versions) and the drumming stands out a bunch on this one. The horn section is also sweet and a little out of left field but fits perfectly -"The Song Is Over" is not like my totally favorite track on the album but it is a great example of building a song from small and kind of sad up into a powerful song. Actually makes the slow, calm parts worthwhile. Also Keith's drumming is totally unique, as usual. The Roger sections really sound like they could fit onto a track from "Who Are You" -In my opinion, the drums heavily carry "Going Mobile" Keith is constantly doing drum fills in a way that fits perfectly with the song. The bridge's combo drumming/guitar solo/chorus and then the drive into the conclusion is great -"Behind Blue Eyes" is an incredible build. It starts super sad an somber, and although the instrumental stays relatively the same, Roger's voice builds slowly from sadness to anger, and then the instruments abruptly catch up into a total jam. Truly incredible song -"Won't Get Fooled Again" is another track where I'm going to try and explain what makes it so good but probably just be confusing -"Won't Get Fooled Again" opens with another iconic synth-y line and goes right into a ripping song of victory. Every instrument's part is incredible. Every instrument is combining to make one entire rhythm, and each one has its own complex, independent part. The song builds up into one of the most iconic moments in rock and roll. The synth chugging along, then Keith's insane drum fills, and then Roger just belts out the most famous, the most powerful, and most iconic scream in all of rock, and possibly of music history. Then scene of them performing it live, with Roger in the laser lights, then Pete's big knee slide is possibly the greatest single moment in rock history. -An incredible album with some absolute killer tracks. Some of the bonus tracks, like "Water," and "I Don't Even Know Myself" are great as well. But "Baba O'Rikey" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" are some of the top songs all time. "Bargain" and "Behind Blue Eyes" are incredible as well
-Re-Make/Re-Model" is a great tune and the trade-off solos across a bunch of instruments is fun -"Would You Believe" starts off kinda boring but then kicks in and becomes a great tune. I like the old school distorted guitar -Rest of the songs were pretty dang plain. A very weak 4
-Choruses in "Wrath of My Madness" and "The Pros" are catchy -It's like, fine...
-Just not a very interesting post-punk album. I feel like it sounds exactly like another band as well. Nothing really stood out through the album. Maybe a strong 3, which is pretty rough cuz most albums in this genre would easily get a 4
-In the bass synth in "Airplane" I thought I was hearing "We'd like to take you home with us" repeated like in "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" -Not much stood out on this one. I think I might start downgrading these to 2's
-The arpeggio (?) into cool synth riff in "I Can't Stand the Rain" is pretty cool -"Private Dancer" is definitely gonna be stuck in my head -"Steel Claw" is a total jam. Fast moving instrumental and intense vocals. It's competing for my favorite track on the album -Cool cover of "Help!" by The Beatles -Very cool cover of "1984" by David Bowie. I was not familiar with this track before but I really like Turner's cover. High energy, lots of great vocal lines
-"Jacques Your Body Makes Me Sweat" has cool bass to drive the song along -"Music makes you lose control" and "Hey you what's that sound?" have lines front he hooks I've actually heard before -"Soft Machine" mentions "Lucifer rising," which was a bit of a surprise -Other than those small notes, generally I found the music straightforward and repetitive. I can see how some of them would make good songs to dance to, but they weren't interesting to listen to
-Side A was pretty good, but not the most thrilling or innovative rock I've ever heard. All quick pleasant tracks that sound like relatively standard psychedelic rock tracks with a single tick more intensity. Not bad by any means, but also not as intense as side B would have led me to expect -Side B: aka just the one song: "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." A classic rock tune with a killer riff. Overall the jam is great, I like the individual solos. At one point the Jan really slows down and that part was weak, but the whole intro and all the singing parts are killer and absolutely classic pieces of rock music.
-"Chocolate Cake" is a great track. Super catchy, cool instrumentation. Cool bass in the bridge area -"Tall Trees" is another great tune. Drums push the upbeat tone of the track -"Italian Plastic" is a fun psychedelic-y track, and the end but is cool with the switch up. -rest of the album is pretty bland
-Every song is just computer beat + whisper singing and it's not bad, it is just boring. Just 50 minutes of the same track it feels like, and the track isn't very compelling -"Flipside" and "Big Deal" were the most interesting, cuz they had like a "beat drop" -This sort of non-offensive but boring album gets 2 stars now
-Generally plain psychedelic rock. Nothing mind blowing. -"Captain Soul" is instrumental and they seemed to up the instruments for that -"2-4-2 Fox Troy (Lear Jet Song)" is pretty cool, lots going on in that one. There's the instruments in the left ear, pilot radio chatter/airline sounds in the right, and the vocals in the middle. That's pretty cool. -Overall just barely a 4
-"Tough Guy" is definitely punk influenced -"Bobo On The Corner" was cool cuz it was instrumental -The instrumental on "Sabotage" was super heavy
-"Blue Suede Shoes" is a jam as usual, and the guitar tone is pretty sweet -"Wreck of the Old 97" is fun a fun upbeat tune -"Boy Named Sue" is a cool story -The "Folsom Prison Blues" medley is fun and the drummer goes nuts on the drums -Lots of classic Johnny Cash-type tracks, including most of his hits. Great guitar tone on lots of the album. The drummer occasionally goes crazy in a way I did not expect. Some of the tracks are a bit slower but overall very fun
-The guitar riff and drum fill in "Better Times" is fun -The orchestral crashes at the end of "10 Mile Stereo" are cool -Those were really the only interesting points in the album. Just not very interesting to me
-The end of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is cool with like the orchestral swells but like they are all faded which is weird to me. I feel like I would have preferred it coming to a more normal crescendo but I'm probably stupid -Nice drum intro in "Cecilia" -I like the explodey drums in "The Boxer" -"Baby Driver" has some catchiness -Just barely edges up to 3 stars
-Awesome driving bass riff in "Dance or Die" -Respectable catchiness in "Faster" and "Tightrope" -"Tightrope" also has a sweet groovy bass and Big Boi has some cool flows -I really like the punk-ness and intense, screamy vocals in "Come Alive (War of the Roses)" -"Mushrooms and Roses" has a cool, spaced-out type vibe and the guitar jam at the end is solid -"Make the Bus" has cool David Bowie and Prince influences -Overall some really cool and strong stuff. A few calmer tracks that were weaker in my opinion, but a really strong showing for a pop-ish album
-I like "Hello," "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)," "When We We're Young, and "Water Under the Bridge" since I heard them enough on the radio -I like the drums and the harmonies in "I Miss You" -The harmonies and swells into the main chorus in "River Lea" are great -My familiarity with it maybe held boostit, but it's right on the border of strong 3 and weak 4
-"Poor Leo" is kinda catchy -"Röyksoop's Night Out" is cool -Just barely interesting enough to get a 3. But overall kind of repetitive electonic music
-I'm still not smart enough to analyze jazz -I found these to be indistinguishable by memory from the Miles Davis albums that I've had ("The Birth Of The Cool" and "Kind Of Blue") -Idk 3 stars I guess cuz that's what the other jazz ones got
-A nice, kind of fun punk-ish album -I like some of the more fun instrument choices throughout, especially in "I Can't Help Myself" -Definitely straddling the line between 3 and 4 stars, but nothing really stood out as crazy good and really deserving of a relisten, but overall still fun.
A perfectly okay blues rock album. Not particularly crazy. "Electricity" stood out for whatever reason. Riding very close to the line between 3 and 4
-"White Dress," "Chemtrails Over The Country Club," and "Tulsa Jesus Freak" all sound like the bridge, intro, or outro to a song, but for the whole time. Basically I felt like the song needed to transition to something better/different the entire time. Not a good start to the album and especially not a good sign since that was 3/4 of the singles for the album. -"Let Me Love You Like A Woman" and "Wild At Heart" were a bit better with some more harmonies on the singing and more interesting music pieces -Yo "Dance Till We Die" suddenly turns into a blues-y rock-ish song for a second. That part was the best part of the album so far -Yeah overall very slow and generally same-y album. Didn't even have the desire to re-listen to see if I missed anything because I didn't see it being enjoyable
I listened through twice but it was just a very plain rock album from what I could tell. Some songs were especially slow. Debated between 2 and 3, but I'm just giving it a 3 because I don't want to have to listen through again to see where the moderately interesting parts are to justify 3 stars.
