Better than I thought it would be. They were a good sounding live band.
I knew more of the songs than I thought I would! Great production but not a keeper for me.
I knew none of these. I could hear elements of War of the Worlds and The Divine Comedy. Didn’t sound like it was from 1973!
I was dreading this, and it was a bit too jazz-like for my tastes, but it was ok. Would I listen again voluntarily? No. Would I turn it off if it came on? Depends how far away the phone is…
Quite nondescript. Nothing outstanding here at all. Would rather re-listen to Count Basie tbh!
I was quite excited by this album - unfortunately for me it did not deliver. I like the Souvenirs song, but nothing else really stood out.
It was enjoyable but probably wouldn’t listen again.
It was pleasant enough, although I really don’t like the track Moondance
I really enjoyed this one but then I do loves me a bit of hip hop. If sounded so fresh, couldn’t believe it was from 2002 - it spoke of topics still relevant today.
It was ok - I don’t really get the mega appeal of the White Stripes, but it was listenable.
I have never heard of this band so was interested to listen. It surprised. I had heard Crash Test Dummies’ version of Androgynous, had no idea it was a cover!
I like Bob Dylan anyway but had only listened to anthologies. I liked this but there were definitely stronger and weaker tracks.
I kinda don’t get the hype, but it was pleasant enough.
A massive surprise! I had no idea what to expect, and somehow it managed to deliver on everything! Definite influence of (or influenced by) Jesus Christ Superstar. And some 50s/60s fun stuff too. So many genres! I did feel this would have been more enhanced by drugs….
It was pleasant enough but probably won’t listen again.
Wow. What an album. Pretty cool. Definitely an influence on the divine comedy
A nice surprise. Couldn’t believe it was 2009.
It was ok. Didn’t set my world on fire
Had never listened to a full BB album before - I liked it. Went on to listen to another one which I didn’t like so much. Think I need to be in the mood for something like this.
Short and sweet
Took me right back to my early 20s. Loved it.
Haven’t ever listened to a full Rolling Stones and was surprised at the different styles of music on it.
Thankfully it was short. Jazz is not my thing.
Love me a bit of Paul Simon
His voice was deeper than I expected it to be. Not my kinda rap music, can’t see the hype.
I listened to it 3 or 4 times.
Loved it. Sought out more of their music afterwards. I’m now a fan.
Not my thing. Too jazzy.
Not my favourite Roxy Music music.
Weird. Very weird. But fun also.
I really enjoyed this album. Went and listened to Graceland by Paul Simon afterwards
Actually really enjoyed this - and enjoyed the resulting Spotify recommended playlist too!
Not my thing.
I enjoyed this, but not a huge fan of the guitar solos, which I’m sure true Van Halen fans do.
I thought “Let’s keep gettin’ it on” was a parody…
It was ok. Didn’t rock my world.
It was ok. Was never a fan of Lovefool and the rest was in a similar vein.
Didn’t really make an impact. But didn’t offend.
Track one - did not enjoy. Few tracks after that quite enjoyed, but not my usual music.
Apart from Dreaming of You, I found everything else quite dull. Sorry.
It was ok. Haven’t heard of this band or any of their music. Bit unmemorable.
Hadn’t listened to much Kate Bush other than singles - quite enjoyed, especially her cockney voice.
It was pretty cool and knew more songs than I thought
I like the Smiths but hadn’t heard this album in full. Really enjoyed it.
It was ok. Again, didn’t rock my world.
Very New Order
I enjoyed this more than I thought. China girl was awesome.
Didn’t listen all the way through. I don’t like jazzy Van Morrison. Don’t like jazz.
I knew one of their songs, who knew?? It was ok but not amazeballs
The first track was awful - hurt my ears! The rest was ok.
A nice surprise. Quite like the Maccabees.
I love me some Waylon Jennings.
I’m glad I’ve listened. I liked Spoilt Victorian Child 😅
It’s classic Ray Charles. You either like it or you don’t.
It was ok. Probably wouldn’t listen again by choice.
Loved it. Knew all the songs but hadn’t listened to them all together
It wasn’t the beach boys
Just ok tbh
I didn’t know what to expect but I quite enjoyed it
It sounded very similar to June Carter and family - but not similar enough
I liked. Would I listen again voluntarily? Prob not.
It was obviously good production. But just a bit dull on first listen. I’m sure subsequent listens would get under the skin.
It was totally not what I was expecting. In a good way. But a bit too dreamy for me.
Pleasantly surprised! Recognised the song “two weeks” from an advert. Very Maccabee vibes.
Nice album but apart from the singles the others didn’t really hit the mark for me.
Bit too jazzy for my liking - but nice to hear
A couple of gems.
It was ok. Not very memorable tbh.
First time listening to a whole PSB album. It was ok.
Very long album - would have to be a super fan to listen to it all!
‘Twas ok. No bangers but I bet I would like it if I was in the right frame of mind/location
No. Not for me.
I was excited by this one as I had the album when it came out. But was still disappointed. Also though it was Maverick Strike with no A - you live and learn
Bit boring tbh
Samey. Probably needs a proper listen on a record player for full effect
Ok - recognised at least one song (stepping stone)
I really enjoyed the first few tracks - then it got very samey. Very radio 2
It was interesting. Couldn’t get the Shirehorse’s “Frank Spencer Blue’s Explosion” out of my head 😆
Took me back….
Interesting to hear the song sampled by Basement Jaxx
A good listen. You can tell the singles
Wasn’t as bad as I thought but not for me
I am liking the Boss
Nice to hear a whole album
I enjoyed the street life song but the rest was a bit too jazzy for me.
Not sure if I’ve heard any Rush before - but I thought I had. Weird.
Better than I thought. But long.
It was interesting to hear more Janis Joplin. Very distinctive voice 😄
Nice to hear some non-single Lauper tunes
Good album, but not a fan enough for all the live stuff. Which sounds just like the recording studio stuff anyway, they that good.
Did not listen. I have heard enough before to know I don’t want to. I don’t get the hype.
DNF - a bit dull
I don’t get it
It was ok
Not for me. Metallica yea, megadeth nah
Ok. I preferred the great escape
Weird story but love the music
Have never heard of this band before. It was ok.
A couple of classics
Long but some beauts
It was ok. Nice to listen to but kinda wanted to listen to other people’s versions
I liked. And I knew at least one!
It was ok. Interesting to hear them reference fake news
Not for me. Racist language made me uncomfortable.
Some more language
Nah. But glad I listened
Not too bad but not mah thang
Classic Who. Great live band.
Love Ms Jackson
Not at all what I expected. I quite liked.
Nice to hear again
Classic. Sounds the same as he does now
A couple of belters.
I had never heard of them but this album was really enjoyable
No bangers for me
I never really got Hendrix.
Wow. Did not know that Dolphins was a cover by Billy Bragg. Great voice. Bit psychedelic at the end.
Never properly listened to her music before
Ok. Can hear some influences but didn’t light me up.
It was ok. I prefer the Beatles.
Not much of the album was on Spotify 😔
It was ok considering it was psychedelic
I enjoyed. Classic.
Heart emoji. I love finding out that artists have written songs I thought belonged to others.
Interesting to hear, but a bit too jazzy
Nice to hear some more flaming lips
Nice bit o’system
Different sound to the one I am used to
Nice to hear some more beach boys
It was ok
I have listened to this many times - I love it
Saw this performed live (not Mike Oldfield, but approved by him). Very atmospheric.
Interesting person. With a few more listens could enjoy more
Classic. So many hits.
Without the context of why this is on the list, I was confused. It is so edited and produced it is almost unlistenable. It’s the vocal equivalent of bad photoshop. Which is shame because I’m sure she has amazing talent, it’s just hidden by production.
Had never heard of this band before. But had heard their influence through Greenday. Big time.
I don’t get it
Nice to hear a whole album
Some songs that have not aged well
Nice to hear a whole album
Not for me
Nice to hear a whole album
Looked intimidating but was good!
I am not the target audience
Didn’t speak to me
Nice, but it’s not my kinda music
I liked the radio playlist that Spotify created after this
Once again, nice to hear a whole album of stuff from an artist I hear on the radio.
My heart sank when I saw the cover - oh no, another jazz album, I thought. But I was pleasantly surprised! Some really lovely music.
Groovin’! Did not know this was theirs. Classic 60s.
Not as bad as I first thought. I have a thing against Radiohead for some reason.
Some uncomfortable language, but rightly so. And of course, some classics.
Love me a bit of Cat Stevens/Yusuf.
It was no Americana - but still a good sound
Classic PS. Would I listen again? Probably not.
Never knew I knew any of these - quite enjoyed
I wasn’t in the mood for this album so don’t feel it got the best side of me. Can certainly hear it’s influence in other music.
Nice to hear a full album again
🎶straight outta the 80s🎶 I was immediately at an 80s dinner party with nouvelle cuisine and black dinner plates. Didn’t like this album then, don’t like it now!
It wasn’t as annoying as I was expecting but won’t be played at my funeral.
No bangers on there, but a lovely 80s sound
Some bangers. But the unknowns haven’t stuck
Not as heavy as I remember. But it’s not my go-to music.
Not what I expected. Eclectic and yet still missed the mark for me. I must be more difficult to please than I thought.
Have only ever really heard Autobahn before, and even then only snippets really. I can imagine really liking this if I had heard this in my formative years.
I don’t think I’m the demographic.
Bit bland tbh. Like most other artists of their era. I think I need to book so that I can find out why some artists are included and can contextualise.
Eclectic mix. I like the different samples and styles.
Another classic. Some different versions of songs - funny how we prefer the version we first here mostly. Or I do anyway.
Oh gosh, why?!
I tried to listen without prejudice - and it worked! A few of these tracks were overplayed in my youth but enough time had passed for me to be able to hear the talent.
Love love love.
It’s. Nirvana. Need I say more?
I had never heard of these and they did not totally suck. They also have not totally stuck so…..
Lovely voice. Eclectic mix of music. Went and listened to some Dolly Parton after this.
Some questionable attitudes to women here. Not a fan.
My first thought was “oh, do I have to?” Then I listened and there was some good bops - but I can’t get away from what he has been accused of.
Did not know what to expect and was still surprised. Not my thing but not bad.
Could only listen to one song as that was all that was available on Spotify. But it wasn’t bad.
Interesting album with a story thread. And some talent which I had never fully appreciated before.
It was not what I expected. Love the thought that some kids made it big and now are doing normal jobs. Or working in the music industry as titans of pop.
I enjoyed. Could hear many bands in them that they obviously have influenced. But did get a bit samey after a while.
Pleasantly surprised. Thought they’d be more rock or more…something else
🎶on a rope, on a rope, got me hanging on a rope🎶 Did not know that I knew this band! It was good, but I won’t seek out more of their music
Really not my thing, but was surprised by how musical the music was. Like it was a really well put together album but I’m just not into shouty gravel vocals.
I enjoyed, but not as much as the last album by LCD sound system.
Thank you, next (I just don’t like jazz)
It was ok but did not set my world on fire.
No thank you
Did not blow me away, but did not bore me either. Cannot now remember any of the tracks though.
I try and put myself in the mindset of a young adult in the past, getting my hands on the vinyl of this album, and just listening with no other distractions (like the internet…). And it still didn’t do it for me
I didn’t listen to it all but I got the idea. I didn’t enjoy the samples, especially the “what does it all mean”, which is used by someone else in another song. I’m tired. Brain not work.
Oh no. I’m not that kind of girl.
Classic Beatles - but nothing I haven’t heard before
Interesting. 2020 album in the top 1001. I’d like to know the history. Was good.
I cannot believe this album is from the 90’s - in many ways it still sounded so fresh. Some definite Princess Superstar vibes in there - but ultimately not my go-to genre.
Nice to hear double Dutch and buffalo gals (or whatever it’s called) in context. But I’m these days it does feel a bit like cultural appropriation
Well. Sweet voice but some problematic material.
I very much enjoyed. Surprised myself.
I couldn’t listen all the way through. It was a bit of an assault on my ear drums. I was not in the mood to be challenged in that way.
What the actual??? I don’t know what the artist was on when they recorded this and I don’t know what I would have to be on to enjoy this. No, just no.
Not as I expected - but not my go to sound
It was good - no tracks I knew but that didn’t matter too much.
Not as brash as I remember AC/DC being - bit my kind of music generally but I enjoyed.
Surprised to see such a recent album in the list - and not entirely sure why. Not great, not terrible.
Was ok. Not my usual jam
All a bit samey
I wanted to like but it just didn’t get under my skin
Wow. Just wow. Something for everyone here. I didn’t expect to like it but I LOVED it.
Wasn’t really feeling it
Was ok, didn’t do much for me though.
Very enjoyable. Took me back to the early 2000s when I was introduced to this. Nothing Else Matters will always be a song for me and an ex. And Don’t Tread On Me is just ace.
I really quite enjoyed this. Heard some interesting influences (divine comedy and others). Would listen again.
It was an interesting album. I did enjoy.
A bit something and nothing.
I appreciate the production and musicality, but not my jam.
Once again, not my jam. But could appreciate the musicality.
Dis my jam. Although, I did. It realise how many of these had been parodied by Mark and Lard so could not take them all seriously. Still loved it though.
Loved it! Some great bass lines
I enjoyed - although not sure if the messages of murder and misogyny are real?
Some bangerzzzz. Not as drug fuelled a mess as I was half expecting. Proper talent o can only dream of.
Love me some Willie - but prefer other albums to this
I so want to love Bowie - but it just doesn’t get under my skin. I think I need the right circumstances for this to have meaning for me. That doesn’t detract from his talent.
I did not hate this as much as I was expecting to! It was fun, even though I knew nothing of what they sang.
So ambient I am having a hard time having a feeling about it. Nope.
I like the singles, and I like the collabs with other artists. But other than that, Mr Cent was not singing the songs for me. But then I don’t think he was trying to…
Did not know what to expect from this as I was not aware of this band. But it was pleasantly pleasing. Would I listen again? Probably not. But would I mind listening again? No, I didn’t hate it.
No thank you.
I had to skip a couple of skits - nobody wants some of those sounds in their ears (if you know, you know). And I don’t know what makes artists like this different but their music is somehow more accessible. I liked, I enjoyed, but it won’t be going on a playlist anytime soon (also, could only listen to some of the songs on the Spotify).
Love me some Dusty. Great voice, great collection of songs. Some ahead of their time (You don’t own me), others less so….
I was excited for this one. Then Nasty Girl came on and I was like woah. No. Not ok Bey. The singles were a bop though.
Classic Siouxsie. Great if you like the sound, grates a bit if you’re not totally into it.
No thank you.
It says something when I can listen to this longer than I can listen to an ambient music album. Having said that, I don’t really understand this type of music. Could not believe it was from so long ago also!
Unfortunately I cold my listen to most of it because it’s not on Spotify. But I did do a lil run through of the classics and I enjoyed.
It didn’t get under my skin.
Was quite excited for this one as I knew at least one song, butt actually found it quite dull. Sorry.
Pleasant to listen to - the rhythm of the words was very soothing
