Pretty good. Do these guys have any other albums?
In general I'm not a Kanye fan and I was surprised by how well this captures the time and place of a period in hip hop. Has this album changed my overall feelings about Ye? Not really.
What can I say? It was Orbital being Orbital. Weirdly I've seen them live twice.
I've always found spiritualized as good ancillary music. Something you can have on, without it demanding your attention.
In a time where beats have come to rule hip hop at the expense of lyrics Kendrick Lamar pushed back.
I kept thinking, "yep this is Elvis. I wonder if he wrote any of this?"
I feel like I should have something to say about this album, but I don't.
I couldn't listen to this, not because of any technical problem, or from a lack of time, but more because I dislike Aerosmith a great deal.
A nearly perfect hip hop/R&B record. Kinda wild this was released in 1998.
This is one I’d put on from time to time.
The way country should be.
Not my cup of tea.
5 stars. Can you think of a more surprising second album? Licensed to Ill was largely an unserious party rap/rock record that had massive success. This album was an effort to move away from that and to be a bit more serious. That said, this album arrived prior to their later "enlightenment" so it still has some of the things that hadn't aged particularly well in License to Ill. From a production standpoint they got lucky as this album snuck in just prior to the changes in copyright law that would have impacted the heavy sampling. A year or two later and this album could have never happened.
Good, i'd listen to this again.
I listened to this album a lot over the years. Even listened to it again last week. I think it came out the year I moved to Potsdam.
This was fine, I don’t see myself returning to it again and again though.
Good stuff. Made better by Luke’s research.
This is not a front to back, beginning to end type of record for me.
The album starts strong, but I lost interest soon after. Probably wouldn't be the Cypress Hill album I'd pick for this list.
I’ve never listened to this album in full before. Seems like a precursor to a lot of rock that came after.
I listened to this one 3-4 times over the course of the day yesterday.
It's on here for a reason, and not just because the guy is suing about his baby dong being on the cover. I really enjoyed listening to this again.
Seemed fine. I never really listened to them before and I probably wouldn't seek them out after hearing this album.
Never listened to Fever Ray before. Will definitely return to this album, and check out others. It's a good album for when I'm doing things around the house.
There’s a kitschy yet delicious Italian restaurant here. This album made me want to walk over there for a bite to eat. Would listen again.
forever a fan of fleet foxes
Kinda boring to me. Lang ain't my thang?
Anytime I put on a Waits album it's the same thing, a rough discordant start, that I'll eventually settle into and enjoy.
If you asked me which album's bass would push the limits of my Sonos 1s, I wouldn't have guessed it'd be a Korn album. Yet here we are... I was also surprised by how enjoyable revisiting this album was as a 40 year old.
This album seems like it influenced a lot of early 00s indie acts.
I could barely finish this one. Not for me.
Never listened to this before, though I'm familiar with the cover of this album. That said the cover, and perhaps the name had me expecting something a lot closer to early 2000s pop punk and I'm glad that's not what I got.
Solid album, but to me doesn't match Blood on the Tracks.
One of the best.
I never listened to the attic monkeys before and I’m ok with that decision.
I believe this was the first CD I ever bought. I haven't listened to this album in probably 20 years and expected to enjoy listening to this now more than I did. I guess my nostalgia for other bands of the era doesn't apply to Soundgarden.
Anytime a Bowie album pops up here or elsewhere I always end up thinking to myself, “I don’t listen to Bowie enough”
I like this album just fine as a background album, one I can put on while working, or reading. I don't quite understand why it's included in this list.
This was better than Smoker's delight, in terms of background music. It also offered just enough to be more than background music. However will I be reaching for it often? No, I will not.
Pretty good. Do these guys have any other albums?
22 years later and this album is no less transgressive than the day it was released. This was definitely the sound of 1999-2000, though I probably won't listen to it much in the 2020s.
This album was incomplete and scrambled for me on spotify. So take this rating with a grain of salt.
No thank you.
I'm never rushing to put on a Talking Heads album, but I'm never unhappy to stumble across one.
I didn't hate it, would listen to it again. Seems very specific to the era in which it was created.
I dunno. It was fine. I don't ever see going back to it though.
I like Sigur Ros, and I like putting on one of their albums while I'm going things around the house. However I'm not sure how they make the list of 1001 albums but I guess that could be said for how I feel about a lot of these albums.
Maybe it's Philadelphia-bias, but this is The Roots at their best.
I enjoyed this quite a bit and will definitely be revisiting it again this year.
This is about as good as it gets with Adams.
I liked this less than the other Dylan albums we’ve come across so far.
I've really never listened to a full Blur album before. Not bad.
I'd forgotten how many singles there were on this album. Can anyone name a song by Alanis that's not on this album?
I can never seem to like an entire Bowie albums much as I would like to.
I liked this more than I expected to. I've found that I've not really loved or hated most of the recent albums.
This is Outkast at their most experimental, and nearing the end of their time as a group. Overall this was a fun one for me to revisit.
Did not dig.
I was surprised to have known as many of these songs as I did. That said there are better Jay Z albums.
The best Radiohead album? I don't know. My favorite? Probably.
Did not dig.
This seems so firmly tied to the time in which it was created.
This is an important and influential album with a handful of well known songs from well known hip-hop personalities. I've listened to it dozens of times but it's never become a go-to when wanting to put on a rap album.
An absolute force.
This seems fine. I don't believe I've ever heard of these folks. Or if I did I just assumed someone was talking about a body part.
I first heard this album in high school, probably around 1996-97 and I hadn't heard anything like it before. This was probably due to being to immersed in the post-grunge alternative rock that was popular at the time.
I wanted to like this album, but then I hit play.
I like the Bill Evans Trio, I listen to their Portrait in Jazz a lot so expected to like this one more.
I'll be listening to this again.
I've heard at least one of these songs before, but ended up liking the album more than expected.
Beep, beep, beep, beep yeah!
It’s no Kid A, but it’s also still good.
Meh. Isn’t he a fascist now, anyway?
Not bad for someone who can't see what he's doing.
Probably a 3.5 for me.
There are a lot more annoying pop albums than this one out there.
I don't imagine I'd be listening to this album again in totality
I got the Mars Volta vibes, but without the goodness that comes with listening to Frances the Mute.
This was alright, however I don't really see myself revisiting it.
I liked this one, but have never loved Elliott Smith as so many others have.
Lost track of this site for a bit. Glad to have come back to this album. One of the best from the era.
2.5 - I have no strong feelings one way or the other.
There's definitely an Emergency on Planet Earth.
I had no real knowledge of Goldfrapp prior to listening and yet I expected to like this album a lot more than I did.
I'm having a hard time keeping track of all the Bowie albums especially relative to one another.
After a bit of a hiatus, I'm back. I enjoyed this album alright.
What's not to like about this one?
It's good, it's no Kid A though.
I don't see myself throwing this one on again and again, but still enjoyed it.
I think the me in my mid to late 20s would have liked this a lot more than the me in my 40s did.
Quite enjoyed this one. Another album where I thought, "oh so this is who this song is by"
I could see myself having this on in the background.
I always want to like Talking Heads albums more than I ever end up liking them.
Lots of 3 star albums for me lately.
I like Emmylou but am maybe a bigger fan of her older work and her collaborations.
Didn't like this as much as I do Mezzanine.
It's not my favorite album by Miles, however it's one I'll go back to.
As a middle aged white guy I'm obligated to give any Wilco album at least three stars.
I'll be listening to this again.
Ain't my thing.
I liked this on the whole far more than I expected to.
This was a fun album, will definitely listen to it again.
I think I like the idea of Waits music more than I like actually listening to it.
Too bad Tosh didn't live long enough to see his dream come true for much of the United States. Also, his wikipedia has a section on his Unicycling. I'm not sure that can be said of any other artist we've reviewed so far.
I've been watching a lot of 80s movies recently, this album definitely fits that theme.
Was surprised by this one, it's not the Pink Floyd I expected though admittedly my PF knowledge is nascent at best having only ever listened to a handful of their records.
This is a pretty strong debut and some of these songs are classics I can't help but feel that Rick Rubin's production is probably the most innovative thing about this album. The Beastie Boys lyrics on this one are purposely aggressive, in your face, and puerile at times (just look up the original title for the album). Luckily for all of us (and their legacy) they evolved.
A pretty fun listen.
Solid and definitely scratches a nostalgic itch.
This album had its time and its place, however its place should not be on the 1001 albums list.
Man, I haven't listened to this album in a long time and I think it will be a long time before I listen to it again. That said, I didn't hate it.
Good stuff, it's a lot to listen to all at once but I often find that true of his albums.
3.5 for me, not my favorite by Arcade Fire but still something I'll put on from time to time.
