I liked YYZ's instrumentals. Don't love Lee's voice.
Google tells me this album was innovative for its time. Fine as background music, but pretty boring.
I learned that it's "Band on the Run" and not "Man on the Run." Otherwise, it's a fun listen but not something I'd come back to with any frequency.
This was less painful than I expected. Wouldn't listen again, but I didn't hate it.
So very 80s. A fun album.
Terrific album. I had listened to this a little while living in Austin in the early 2000s, but I totally did not appreciate it at the time. The story of this album really captures the tension between the good parts of the South and all the bad. I love the storytelling and the connections to Skynyrd and Young. Will definitely put this and other Drive-By Truckers albums in my regular rotation.
Such an amazing voice.
Not sure what to say about this one. Not my thing.
The spare sound of Bruce and his guitar fits perfectly with the stories told in these songs.
Not sure how I’ve never heard of the Saints before. Solid album.
Rockabilly is not my thing, but there are a couple good songs on here.
Okay, but nothing I'd come back to.
Solid album. One of the few albums that I enjoyed even more 25+ years after I first listened to it.
Really like the vibe on this album.
Listened to this constantly for about a year when it first came out. Love it.
Blues/Southern Rock is my jam.
This is a weird album. I know constant craving. Most of the other songs on the album sound totally different and have an odd bossa nova thing going on that I didn’t expect.
Fun album. Janis had such a unique voice.
The lyrics are interesting and I generally like the music, but combined they create something that I definitely wouldn't listen to again.
Great album. Brings together several of my favorite things - Guthrie, Wilco, folk, and union songs. Love California Stars. This is the just the first volume. The complete sessions are terrific.
Some tracks are good, but I’d need to be trippin’ to make it through the full album.
Good album. Not sure I'd listen to the whole album again, but enjoyed this listen. Definitely can hear how this influenced later ska or semi-ska bands like Sublime.
Not my favorite Costello album, but I still enjoyed it.
This does nothing for me.
Not my favorite, but still a good album.
I always feel like I should like the Smiths more than I do.
Funky (in the best way).
Only giving a three for Walk This Way and Sweet Emotions. Rest of the album is ho-hum.
