5/5. Big Leonard Cohen fan! Always great to see his albums on this list. Best songs: Avalanche, Joan of Arc, Dress Rehearsal Rag, Love Call You By Your Name, Diamond in the Mine,
Brilliant. Very nice listen.
A combination of R&B and progressive rock. Walk on By is a journey. Loved it.
I like the PSB, but don't know any song but Go West...
Didn't really do it for me
Need to listen again
Some great classics: Giggalo/I ain't got nobody, The Lip,k Jump Jive and Wail, You Rascal You...
I like it
Nothing really stood out for me. I listened a few times. I really wanted to like it. I think it needs more time to grow on me. For now, it's just ok. Hold on to your Friends is nice... The More You Ignore me... Is very good.
Really great songs. Easy listen.
Know it well. Very good.
This album made me wish I knew how to dance. Really great swinging jazz!
It's ok. Just fine. Don't know why I had to listen to it though. I'm from the SF Bay Area and never heard of Quicksilver Messenger Service before.
Good for the Genre. I enjoyed it more than expected. I would gladly listen again.
I liked it much more than expected. Especially the first "side".
Classic. Love every song. Five out of Five Stars. Favorite songs. Scene's From an Italian Restaurant, Vienna, The Stranger, Everybody Has a Dream and all the hits (Moving Out, Just the Way you are, Only the Good Die Young, She's Always a Woman).
My first Butthole Surfers experience. It's loud and I liked it. I've always heard of the band but never heard the music. I really loved the first track and how it sounds oh so similar to Sweet Leaf by Black Sabbath...let me see, what was that song called. Oh yeah, Sweet Loaf. I liked this band right from the start! Ok, it took 1+ minutes, because of that slow load into the guitar riff. Ok, some of the songs have lyrics - I guess. I think they are saying something in "The O-Men" but It could just be nonsense... it doesn't matter. Their noise is interesting. Kuntz is a song sung in Thai... where'd that come from! I'm sure they picked the word because it sounds like cunt! Songs like Graveyard, pound hard and make me turn it up a bit more... I turned it up to 11 on a 10 scale :) There are some really interesting sounds in the song "Hay". Calling it a "song" is a stretch. It is more of an experience in sound than a song. Human Cannonball is probably the most "radio-worthy" song. It seemed like a complete song that I would easily expect to hear on College Radio back in 1987. It has lyrics you can understand too! Halfway through U.S.S.A. I smiled. That guitar riff, that nonsense babble just got me. The into of "22 going on 23" is baffling. She sounds more like 82 going on 83... Great guitar riffs throughout this one. Standout tracks: Sweet Loaf Human Cannonball.
Interesting. Not bad. Never heard of this before. I am sure it will just get better each time I hear it. This is a nice refreshingly different sound. Little reggae mixed with some rock.
The title song will forever be stuck in my head, and this is a GOOD thing. It is the absolute best song on the album. All I want in life's a little bit of love To take the pain away Getting strong today A giant step each day The rest of the album is good. I enjoyed it. Standout: Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space.
Kind of a mess. But, it's supposed to be, after all, the cost of one admission is your mind. I'm not sure if the price was right though. Standouts: American Metaphysical Circus - It's an interesting mess of a song. I Won't Leave My Wooden Life For You. Full of unnecessary sound effects. Could have been on the Dr. Demento playlist. Stranded in Time. The most Beatle song on the album. Not bad though.
Hard to listen to this for the first time in 2021 because it is SO 1960's. I love the Kinks but didn't know they went back this far.
Barmy is great. I'd add that one to my punk playlist. Mansion and the similar-sounding To Nik Rocachment: Yarbles are nice bookends to start and end the album. The first couple of times I listened I wasn't impressed but, it started to grow on me. It has its moments. Standout: Barmy
1/5 Too many nigga's and bitches.
4/5 only because I know with time I will like it more and more. Some really good dark rock on here. Standout: Helter Skelter.
Seems good. I need more listens. Solid 3/5.
Classic. Not my fav by them but good.
Classic Punk - a must have, must listen to album
Loved this album. I knew one song before listening. Listened many times.
Some great songs, brings back memories.
A very cool album.
Zero stars. Total crap. Has no respect for himself or his race. Too many 'nigga's.
Big fan of Nina Simone's style. I first heard of her back in the late 1980s. She had a hit song, "My Baby Just Cares for Me" when I was living in Europe. I had no idea it was an "old" song at the time. I never heard of her. Then I realized that I had an LP of her's that I got in a box of LPs I found at a garage sale. The Album was "Baltimore". Not one of her best, but had a couple of very good, likable songs. I started listening more to her, but had never really listened to this album until now. Stand Outs: Four Women Wild is the Wind
I loved this album back in 1982, and still love it today. I am probably in the minority, but THIS is my favorite Springsteen album.
5/5. Big Leonard Cohen fan! Always great to see his albums on this list. Best songs: Avalanche, Joan of Arc, Dress Rehearsal Rag, Love Call You By Your Name, Diamond in the Mine,
I loved this album when it first came out. Today, it has lost a little, but still holds up. Silent All These Years is still such a great song.
I liked it more than I thought I would. Great sounds. What a voice.
maybe a good album, but my first and second listen didn't do anything for me.
ok for 1st listen
Very good to great.
FIVE STARS. Standouts: Stan, The Way I Am, Kill You, The Real Slim Shady, Kim.
in 1979, this was THE album. in 1980 it was STILL 'THE' Album. Everyone thought he would never top it. Well, he did. But, this is still a classic. Solid FIVE stars.
Five Stars Standouts: IGY, The Nightfly, New Frontier, Maxine, Green Flower Street
3/5 It's nice. First listen. I enjoyed it but don't think it's anything special.
Good stuff. Hard to go wrong with these guys.
4/5. Heard this one quite a few times. Gets better each time.
Good album. Interesting. Best songs: Paris Match, A Gospel, My Ever Changing World, You're the Best Thing.
The Ska style is ok for me. I know some are big fans. This is my first time hearing the band or the album. I think the album cover is cool. I listened a couple of times today. The sound just didn't grow on me today. But, I think with more listens it will just get better. For now I'll give it a low 3/5.
5/5. Perfect for the genre. Love it.
One great track, Fix Up, Look Sharp - It's great because of the Billy Squire samples. Couple other pretty good songs. The rest is ok. 2.5/5.
Really great to hear this one again. Classic.
Very average sound.
UK or US release? If the two were combined in to one album including all the songs it would be a strong 4 or higher. Because the UK version is without "Paint it Black" and the US version is missing a few from the UK version, including "Mother's Little Helper". These are the two standout songs to me. Losing one on each version is killer. The rest of the albums contain many well-known Stones classics. But, because of all the different versions I'm giving it a strong 3/5. It would be a 4/5 with all songs included. I HATE when record companies do this!
4/5. Surprised that I enjoyed this as much as I did. Standouts: Sweet Dreams, Love is a Stranger, Jennifer, This is the House, Somebody Told Me. I also enjoyed some of the bonus tracks.
I've heard worse, but this one is not for me.
Not a Bob Dylan fan, but this is good. 4/5 Standouts: Tangled Up in Blue, Shelter From the Storm, Simple Twist of Fate,
5/5. A perfect album. Every song is classic.
It's fine. Good Stones album. 2/5.
Not too bad. Never heard of them before. I heard a bit of The The in them and Chris Rea,... it definitely grew on me quite a bit today. Strong 2/5 (good for 1st listen).
5/5. This is the kind of album you expect to find on a list like this. Every song is great.
Second Listen. The first time this album came up for me, I wasn't impressed. None of the songs grabbed me at all. This time, I feel completely different. I thought the sounds, raps, everything was very interesting. I was probably turned off by the language used. This time I tried to focus more on the groves. Enjoyed it much more this time around. 3/5. (2/5 first time) Phrenology: the detailed study of the shape and size of the cranium as a supposed indication of character and mental abilities.
I had heard of one song. Not a bad album. 2/5.
1/5. Nothing but background music with some annoying "piece of shit motherfucker" talk.... Not one notable song. How does this make the list?
A couple of classics, the rest are fairly new to me. Old Aerosmith is always the best. 3/5 for now. I am sure this will be 4/5 when I get to know it better.
Not my kind of music. Little too much twang for my liking. But, sounds really nice. Maybe I can get used to it. 2/5 first listen.
2nd listen. Still good.
Very good. First listen. I knew a couple of the songs. He has a great style. Interesting. Even with the language I still enjoyed it.
Simple, nice songs. 2nd listen.
First listen. 2/5
First listen 2/5
First listen ok
First listen. 2/5. Couple good songs.
First listen. Nice
This band is the reason I wanted to listen to this 1001 albums list. Never heard of them before now I am a fan. Love the sound. 4/5
Interesting. Curious to hear more
First Listen. I have heard of Tom Waits before and may have heard a song or two of his, but basically, I am new to his sound. It is interesting. I think I like it. It is hard to listen to. Back in the 80's there was a song by Robbie Roberton called, "Somewhere down the crazy River" that I love. I think Robbie was channeling Tom Waits sound in that song. Because of that, It gives me great hope that I will come to love Tom Waits over time. That being said, as a first listen to this one, I'm giving it a 2/5. I am sure this will go up after I am more familiar with it.
Nice relaxing sounds. Good background music. My wife kept saying she liked it.
Really Starting to enjoy this one.
First listen. Ok for me.
2/5. Background music only
Hard to believe this was from the 60s. Early eary punk.
Great. 4/5. Second listen. Next time it might be 5/5.
First Listen. Couple classics. nice album.
First listen. Nice Indian music with commentary.
First listen. Nice. I like the sounds. Would like to hear more of it.

First Listen. 2/5. Different. I'd like to hear more, but not sure about it now.
First Listen. I know and loved RUN-D.M.C. more for their next couple albums. This album has an undeniable style of RUN-D.M.C., just hearing it takes me back to 1984. 3/5.
First listen. The first song is really great. Sounds so familiar. The rest of the album is good. 2/5
First Listen. Pretty much good background music. Don't know if this one will grow on me with more listens. 2/5 for now.
Couple of classic songs. I think it's the first time I've heard the whole album. Public Enemy was definitely unique in this time frame. 2/5.
Some classic songs. 3/5
First Listen. Bob Marley is always good. 3/5
2nd listen stn. Getting better
First listen. There she goes is the song I know the La's for is a classic. I've heard it on the radio as well from several movies. The rest of the album was new to me. 2/5
First Listen. Nothing for me.
First Listen. Never heard of these guys before. Good punk rock. I enjoyed it. Like to hear more. 2/5
First Listen. Standouts: Nightclubbing, China Girl
First Listen. This band has some great songs but I have never heard any of these songs before. I like their sound and look forward to getting to know this one better. Standouts: Round & Round, Run. 2/5
First Listen. Really hard to like. There is not much here. A lot of sounds and drums don't make a great album. I'll give it a chance..but I think 2/5 is the best this will ever get.
First Listen. Pretty great album. Great horns. Very enjoyable. 3/5.
Great songs. 3/5
2nd Listen. Great sounds. Love at least half of the songs.

Heard this so many times, but still becoming familiar with it. 3/5. Very close to being a 4/5.
Pretty great. 4/5
Marvin Gaye is great. I know the song, the album is still new to me. This is my second listen and it is still a good 3/5 for me for now.
2/5 It's ok. Background music at best. Why?
5/5. One of the best albums ever. From its iconic album cover to the Amazing songs. One of the only perfect albums on this list. Standouts: A Day in a Life, She's Leaving Home, Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, When I'm Sixty-Four, Lovely Rita, followed by other rest of the songs...
First listen. Need to listen again. 2/5
First listen. Smooth jazz and funk, R&B. Very nice. Love to hear more of this. 2/5 for now.
The song "Scum" is the best thing on the album. The rest is difficult to enjoy. The music is good, the singing/screaming/barking is bad. I give it 2/5 for the music, 0/5 for the screaming. 2/5
First Listen. I know one song "Drive". Need to hear more of this one.
Great album, lots of good memories
First Listen. Interesting. Different than her other albums - in a good way. I like it. Can't wait to hear more of it. 2/5 for now.
Second Listen. Gave it 1/5 first time. The one song I liked was "Damaged". A couple of the songs are really annoying (Don't Fight It, Feel It), but there are a couple of good songs: Damaged. Loaded. Movin' On Up. Shine Like Stars. I definitely enjoyed it more this time, but still just 2/5 2/5
Very Good. Easy listen. 3/5
Second listen. Still enjoying it. 3/5
Second Listen. Gave it a 1/5 the first time. Not as bad this time
Not bad. First listen. Not really my choice of music, but it is enjoyable. 2/5
Second listen - in a week. Ok. Enjoyed it the first time, this time it was great too. Still only a 3/5 for me though. Some really great songs are left for the bonus tracks.
First listen. I know a couple of the popular songs. The rest are new to me. CSN are great, but their sound is pretty dated now. Listening to that harmonizing on each song get's a little tired. Still an enjoyable album. 2/5
First listen. Seems like a good album, but nothing special for me. 2/5.
Heard this album a couple times. Not really famiiar with it at all though. I love MIND BOMB and I wanted more like it, but this was different. For me, I like it. Love the singers voice. Can't wait to hear more of it. 2/5
First Listen. Never heard his music before. Seems good. Need to hear more. 2/5
It's Bob. It's Good. 3/5.
2nd listen. 3/5
Not for me.
Good background music
First listen. Never heard of him before. Not for me.
First listen. Need to hear this again. 2/5 for now.
I don't think such new albums should be on these lists. That being said, this was a very enjoyable album and I'd like to hear more of it. 2/5.
2nd Listen. Not my favorite Zappa record. It seems good though. It is starting to grow on me.
It is a nice reggae album. Never heard of them before. Worth another listen. 2/5
Live Deep Purple. It's good.
2nd listen. It's ok.
Second Listen. Great, classic songs. Classics: Blitzkrieg Bop, Beat on the Brat. Others: I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend, 53rd and 3rd. Let's Dance, I Don't Wanna Walk Around. 4/5
I give this a 4/5 for being such a nostalgic album. Such a great time in my life when I lived in the Netherlands and this was the hottest album at the time. I listened to it many times back then and loved it. Now, it has been many years since I've heard it. It isn't quite as good as I remember, but I loved hearing it again. 3/5 overall.
Easy to listen to. 3/5
Solid. Great album. Haven't heard it in years.
First listen. The songs are good, just not too sure if this is a must-listen-to album. I enjoyed it though. Standouts: In-a-Gadda-Da-Vita, Apache, Let There Be Drums I give it a strong: 2/5
First Listen. I'm sure this was better in 1978. It isn't too bad today too. Enjoyable. Standouts: The Model 2/5 for now.
First Listen. LOVE their sound. Every song sounds great. Can't wait to get to know this one better. 2/5 for now, but I can tell this will be higher, next time I listen to it.
First Listen. At first, I didn't like it much. But, as the day went on I started enjoying it more and more. This is definitely different than what I was expecting. I like her when she sang with the Velvet Underground - and that was what I was expecting. This album definitely sound like the 1967, flower-power, peace-and-love scene, and I thought she would have more of that Berlin rock sound. After getting used to the sound, I started liking it more and found myself singing along a couple of times. I'll give it a strong 2/5 for now. It might be a 3/5 next time I hear it.
2nd listen. Not getting it. Every song kind of sounds the same. They aren't bad, but they are forgettable. 2/5
First Listen. Interesting and different. 2/5
First listen. Very easy to listen to. I know a few of the songs very well. The others are mostly great. 3/5
First listen. Very nice. Like to hear more of it. 2/5
Very classic Depeche Mode. A very modern and polished sound, the quality of the production is excellent. I know many of the songs very well, and a few I know I've heard before but seemed new to me. Overall, I definitely enjoyed revisiting this one. 3/5
I've known this album since it came out. Classic. Not their best, but so good. 4/5.
Second Listen. Very good album. Their sound is growing on me. Standouts: Hiding All Away. Messiah Ward, Abattoir Blues, Let the Bells Ring, The Lyre of Orpheus,
First listen. Kinda Showtunesy... hard to like, hard to dislike. 2/5
Second listen. I heard this first from the Rolling Stone top 500 list. First time, I thought it was ok, but this time the songs are really sticking with me. I am enjoying the sounds and lyrics. Definitely fits the time with other acts like David Bowie. 3/5.
2nd Listen. More interesting sounds from Brian Eno. This time paired with David Byrne. 3/5
2nd listen. I like Simple Minds, but this isn't in the same league as some of their other work. 2/5. Maybe it will grow on me in time.
Amazing album. 5/5. I just had Ladysmith Black Mambazo come up in my list a couple of days ago and immediately thought, I wanted to hear this album - and here it is.
First Listen. I don't know any of the songs. It is a really old style of country music. For me, it was hard to get into in 2021 for the first listen. 2/5
2nd listen. Some really good stuff here! 3/5
First time hearing this one. This is a hard listen. I think it will take more time hearing it to really get into it. It doesn't seem to have the same rhythm and style that I'm used to with Jazz. 2/5 for now
Second Listen. I am a fan of Genesis, but this has been an album I hadn't heard much of until this list. I knew a few of the songs before listening. This is one of those albums that will take a while to really get into. A very strong 3/5 for now.
First Listen (in a long time). I love the song Angels. A couple of the songs I remember from long ago but barely. I loved some of the later Robbie Williams albums, I don't know why I never got into this one. I need to hear it more to judge it properly. 2/5 for now.
2nd listen. Nothing really stands out to me as special.
Classic. not as good as Purple Rain, but pretty damn good.
Loud. That can be good sometimes, but not always. 2/5
I listened all day and can't remember a song... 2/5
Very good Soul album from long ago. I forgot how good his version of Satisfaction was. I've Been Lovin You too Long is one of his greatest! 3/5.
A really good album. 4/5. Stand out: Blue Moon, Tryin' to Get to you, Blue Suede Shoes.
First listen. never heard of him before. Not too bad :) 2/5
Nice, I would need to hear more of it to appreciate it, I think. 2/5
Better than expected. Couple of good songs. 2/5. I look forward to hearing it again.
Ok for what it is.
American Pie, the song, is classic and Vincent (Stary Stary Night) is one of my favorites by Don McLean. Until this list came out, I never heard the whole album before. It has become one of my favorites. This is the third time it has come up for me. Standouts: American Pie, Vincent. Till Tomorrow, Crossroads, Winterwood, Empty Chairs, The Grave 4/5
Never heard of them. I was expecting a heavy metal album based on name and album cover. uh, yeah, just the opposite. I really liked it. This is something I would love to hear more and more of. This is really nice!
Such a good album. Very enjoyable.
Easy to listen to. Enjoyable. 3/5
1/5. Nigga fuck bitch…. The music is good, too bad it is spoiled with his language.
Better than expected. 3/5. I prefer the later Who albums, but this one is pretty good too.
Never heard this one before. Great Stuff.
Some great songs, but overall the album is dated. Standouts: Oh Boy, That'll Be The Day. 2/5
Gets better every time I hear it. I still need more time with this one. 3/5.
Two great songs, others are quite good. 3/5
Pretty great album. Never really listened to the whole thing before. 3/5
Good, but not my style of country music. 2/5
Excellent album. Standouts: Roadhouse Blues, Waiting for the sun, Blue Sunday, Land Ho!, Peace Frog, Indian Summer.
Good album. 2nd Listen for me. Some of the songs are starting to grow on me.
Way better than expected!
Half of the songs on this album are true classics! The rest are just damn good! 4/5
Fairly uninteresting background music. Some songs seem ok, but most are forgettable. 2/5
1st Listen. There are a couple of songs that made me listen more closely. Interested to hear more of it. But, still not sure it belongs on this list.
NIce. Need to hear more of it.
1st listen. Need to hear more of it. 2/5 for now.
Pretty great! 2nd listen. Standouts: Frightened, Rebellious Jukebox, more…
