Pueblo Nuevo is a nice jazz song. I enjoyed Dos gardenias. Buena Vista Social Club (Song) was nice. Overall, not for me.
LIstened to it a few times. I know the title-track and might have heard Do You Realize before. Everything else was new to me. Has some interesting sounds, but overall, it isn't something that grabbed me. Standout tracks: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Part I. Fight Test, Do You Realize.
I've known this album for years, but only listened to a few tracks. This time I put the headphones on and listened to it all. Intensely. The well-known tracks are great and sound even better when listening so intensely. Walk this Way and Sweet Emotion are the two songs I knew. The rest were new to me. Toys in the Attic - Great start to the song. What a way to kick off the album. Uncle Salty - Loved it. Adam's Apple. ... She ate it... It was love at first bite! Cool. Walk this way - MEGA-Classic. Big Ten Inch Record - I like the groove! Now whip out your big ten-inch.... record. Sweet Emotion - Classic. Perfect. No More No More - It's alright.... You See Me Crying - I love Rock ballads. Steven Tyler's vulnerable side. Nice, not great, but nice way to end the album. Stand Out Tracks: Walk This Way Sweet Emotion Uncle Salty Big Ten Inch Record
I'm not much of a fan of Jane's addiction. The lead singer's voice doesn't work for me. The music itself is mostly great if played loud. Enjoyable, but not great for me. I'm sure other's love it and and I have no problem with that. I'm sure if I listen again sometime in the future maybe it will capture me more than it did this listen.
Such a great album. When this album came out I was obsessed with Alanis Morissette. The mid-to-late 90s belonged to her. Every song on this album may not be perfect (only one is actually) but it is SO good and it just brings back so many memories...it is a solid 5/5 for me. Standouts: You Oughtta Know, Perfect, Hand in My Pocket, You Learn, Ironic, Right Through You, Head Over Feet. And in case you are wondering the one perfect song, is "Perfect". But You Oughtta Know that right?
One of their best. And they have had some great albums. This was the first one I bought from them. I have them all now, It is pretty great, start to finish.
5/5. Classic. In 2022 it will be 50 years great. Standouts: Highway Star Smoke on the Water Space Truckin' Lazy
I am a huge Queen fan, but this is one of those albums I know the least, so this was a great opportunity to listen to it thoroughly. When the movie Baby Driver came out I remember listening to Brighton Rock over and over again. That was a great movie and I became a fan of the song too. The rest of the album is still growing on me. Standouts: Killer Queen Brighton Rock Lily of the Valley & Dear Friends
Hard not to give this a perfect 5/5. So many great songs and a few pretty good ones mixed in. RIP Kurt.
4.5 / 5. Bye, Bye Love is a horrible addition to this album. Everything else is great.
Sounds good. Need more listening time.
Seemed to go on forever. I like the music, but not so much all at once. I got tired of it.
Need to listen again!
Paul lives. Classic.
Jam-packed with classic Beatles masterpieces. I'm a Beatles fan, but I love the White Album, Sgt Pepper and Abbey Road much more than this one.
Five stars. Easy. Next.
Big fan of deez guys! This album need more listening time from me to increase the star rating.
I like Traffic, but this one is one that needs many more listens to appreciate.
An eclectic mix of musical styles from Disco to Punk Rock. The album seemed pleasing, but since this was a first listen for me, it didn't grab me right away. Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll is a song that I've heard before and recognized it right away. I had no idea previously, who sang it or when it was from. Stand Out Songs: Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll
It's alright. Not a big fan of Bob Dylan.
Solid three stars for now, maybe upon further listens this can be a 4 star album.
One great song. I used to listen to this quite a bit when it came out. I don't remember most of the songs now.
short album. seemed ok, first listen.
1st listen. Don't know any of the songs, heard of the Wu Tang Clan... Need to listen more.
1st Listen. Mostly liked it.
FIVE stars. Strong album. A classic start to finish.
I don't like the language, but the music is phenomenal. What a talent. Really enjoyed this. Listened to it at least three times today and just keeps getting better.
3/5. First Listen. Has potential. :)
3/5. First listen. I enjoyed the last couple songs the most.
Never heard this album before. It seems ok, I'm giving it a 2/5 for now. We'll see if it gets better with time. Nothing stood out to me on this album.
Half of this album is a solid 4. But overall, I'm giving it a 3/5.
3/5 Great Funk.
Yep, again. Not bad.
One star for excessive language & disrespect to women. The music etc was just ok for me as well. Don't get me wrong I love rap, hip-hop etc, but only if it is good. This was NOT good.
Don't know the album. Hear one other by Love on this "Albums to listen to before you die" series. I do like the sound of this one. "7 and 7 is" is a nice pre-pre-punk sound. I can see why other punk bands have recorded it. Not bad. Revelation almost gives me a "Doors"/"Jim Morrison" feel. Interesting because this came out before anyone ever heard of the Doors. Stand outs: Orange Skies, Que Vida! The Castle, She Comes in Colors. This is a 3/5 for me. Which is a "good rating" for an album I hear for the first time. I can see this one growing on me and just getting stronger. I smell a 4/5 in its future.
2nd listen. Great stuff
Very good. Not a big Elvis fan. Overall 3/5 Standouts: I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin'), Blue Moon, and Blue Suede Shoes.
Solid 3/5. This one will only get better.
First listen 3/5. My kind of music!
Good for the genre. 3/5
Interesting sound. First listen for me. Never heard of them before. I like it more than I thought. Heard it several times today. 2/5 for now...
Zero. Total Crap. Can't believe people like this.
I have no idea how this is a "must listen to" album. It is very average at best. Never heard of this group, never heard of any of the songs. Maybe it gets better with time, but for me, it has to be a 1/5 for now.
Another solid classic by LC
Cat Stevens is always good to listen to. 3/5
5/5. Know this album so well. It is a masterpiece. Every song is great.
3/5. A few really great songs, the rest have a familiar sound, even though I don't know the songs. You Better Run? Really? I thought that was a Pat Benetar song! Standouts: How Can I be Sure? Groovin' You Better Run, A Place in the Sun.
I have three accounts, and this is the third listen for me. The first two times I gave this album a 3/5 stars rating. I had never heard of her before. Now, I'm kind of a fan. This album is pretty great. Solid 4/5 now.
First listen. Never heard of them before. I like the sound for the most part. I think this one will grow on me with time. Good alternative rock. 2/5 (for now).
Love his voice and style.
First listen. Sounds good. Like to hear more of it.
5/5. Led Zeppelin is one of the greatest bands ever. All songs are amazing.
2nd time around for me. 4/5. Great sound. Classic.
Know this album well. One of my favorites from the Genre. 5/5. Standouts: So What, Freddie Freeloader
First Listen. Reminds me of De La Soul's Three Feet High and Rising... Love it. I'm giving this a 3/5 (which for me on first listen) is very high.
Interesting, deam-like songs.
Know and love CCR. Some really great classics on this album. It almost feels like a Greatest Hits album, but it isn't. This is a solid 5/5. Classic. Love it.
If this was a single LP it would be a strong 5 stars. A lot of great songs on this one.
First Listen. Very good stuff. Better than expected.
Second listen. Very nice music to have on in the background. Really enjoying the music.
2/5 first listen. Couple good songs.
First Listen. Sounds pretty good.
Second Listen. 2/5 for me this time. I think it's good, but need to hear more.
I thought Greatest Hits albums weren't part of the deal for this collection of albums? That is what this kind of is, isn't it? Don't get me wrong, it's great music, and I enjoyed it.
First Listen. Nothing special here. One good song. One. The rest seemed just blah to me. I'll give it another chance someday but for now, 1/5
First Listen. Really like some of the songs. I'm excited to hear this one again. It is listed as Alternative Country / Alternative Rock. I feel more alternative rock than country on many songs, others the country comes through. Very nice. 2/5 Standouts: Misunderstood.
Second Listen. Still enjoying it second time around 3/5.
The more I hear this one the more I like it. Second Listen. 4/5. Black Sabbath. Evil Woman. The Wizard. NI.B.
First listen. Sounded ok. One well known song. 2/5
Rehab is a great song. The rest of the album is solid. My first time listening to this one. Like to hear more. 2/5 for now. Promising though.
One of the best in the Genre. Heard this many times when it came out. Was really glad to hear it again today. Still as good as ever. 4/5.
Not your typical Beach Boys sound, but this is really nice. I really enjoyed the songs. I think after hearing it more the rating will go up quite a bit. Right now I'll give it a 3/5 for first listen. Stand Outs: Disney Girls (I always loved the Art Garfunkel version, and didn't know it was originally a Beach Boys song).
First lIsten. Ok for me. Too many N's and F's.... 2/5
First Listen. Very good. Like to hear more. Low 2/5 for now. Standout is Runaway. This is an amazing song, start to finish. I think I may have heard it before, because it sounded familiar but when it started I was totally focused on it the whole time.
First listen. Some great songs
First listen. I think this is my favorite Bob Dylan album. This one will only get better with time. Standouts: Make You Feel My Love 3/5.
First Listen. It's a great album and it's live.
First Listen. Never heard of this band before. Listened a few times today. This is really good. The songs felt so familiar and comfortable by the end of the night - I knew this was something special. 3/5 (for a first listen, that is a great score).
First listen. Love other Zappa albums. Not getting this one though.
First Listen. I wish I understood Portuguese because I think the lyrics have to be as amazing as the melodies. This album has such an amazing, calming presence. This is one of those albums I would have never listened to in my life. So I am grateful that it is on this list so I did get the chance to hear it. I can't wait to listen to more of it in the future. My rating may seem low for now, but I know this album will only go up as I listen to it more. 2.5/5
First Listen. I am sure back in the 60's this might have been something. but, to hear it now in 2021 for the first time. It kind of loses something. It does have some good sounds, so I'll give it a chance again in the future. 2/5 for now.
First Listen. Smooth. 2/5
Love Leonard. 5/5
First Listen. Rock classics India style. Not bad.
Second listen. First was a 2/5 the first time and stays a 2/5 for me this time. It is fine, it's really good music. Just not exciting for me.
First Listen. I know a couple of the songs. The rest of the album seems solid. 2/5
Second Listen. Becoming a very familiar album to me. Some call this album 'boring' but, it is not. It is a comfortable album. I enjoyed it from start to finish and look forward to hearing it again. First listen I gave this a 2/5, now it is a solid 3/5.
Albums like this can be difficult. You really have to be in the right mood. I'd say for the genre, it was quite good and better than expected. I'd enjoy hearing it again sometime when the mood is right. For me just 2/5 for now though.
2/5 Too many F's and N's...
Produced by Brian Eno. Something really good about this album. At first, I thought it was just another boring (mostly) instrumental album, but this one caught me by surprise. I really enjoyed it. Like to hear it again. 3/5 Standouts: Penguin Cafe Single
Loved the first massive attack album I seen on here. This one, not yet. 2/5
First Listen. I know a couple of the songs, but the rest is new to me. Love it on first listen. Standouts: The Message, Scorpio, It's Nasty, It's a Shame 3/5
First listen. Never heard of her before. Nothing stood out to me on first listen. Need to hear more.
First listen. Not my style of music. Good for background, study music though.
First Listen. Never heard of them before. Definitely a sound I like. Very enjoyable album. I'll listen to this one again. 2/5 for now.
Second Listen. It's funny because I like Kate Bush. This album doesn't do it for me except one song: This Woman's Work. Reminds of the end of the movie: She's Having a Baby. Great. Standouts: This Woman's Work.
A few classics! 3/5 Solid.
Not the first time I've heard this album. It is great. Every song is great. I love the progressive soul sounds! Solid 4/5.
First Listen. Don't know the band at all. I was expecting something more 'hardcore', but I'm happy that this wasn't another metal band. I really hear a David Bowie influence when I listened to it. Does this mean they are not original? Just listening to the music and taking it for what it is, I think it isn't bad. But, at this point, I'm not sold on it. Like to hear more. 2/5
First listen. This is my kind of music. Never heard of them before though. I enjoyed it and like to hear more of it in the future. 2/5 for now.
Very good. Easy listen. 3/5
Second listen. Still loud. Still hard to listen to. You really have to be in the mood for this kind of music to enjoy. The music is much more enjoyable than the screaming. 2/5
Second list within the past two weeks. Gave it a 2/5 then and still just a 2/5 for me now. I will say that I am enjoying it more this time than last time, but not enough right now. I can see this being a 3/5 sometime in the future.
First listen. I like Yes, first I heard of this album though. After listening to it a few times, I'm not feeling it yet. 2/5 for now.
Quite a few big, well known songs. The rest seem pretty good as well. I like it. 3/5 for now (First listen).
First Listen. Morrissey's voice: good or annoying. Couple good songs. Need to hear more. 2/5.
Well, that was interesting. Enjoyed this one more with headphones on and no distractions. Amazing sounds and sampling. Love to hear more. For now, first listen, a strong 2/5.
First Listen. 2/5
Frank is always great
Love it! 4/5
So classic. Love early Rod Stewart. 3/5
Not a fan of Mariah Carey. 2/5
2nd Listen. Pretty damn classic. 3/5
I know the song Street Life. The rest is just nice funky jazz. No problems with it at all. I look forward to hearing more of it. First Listen. 2/5
First listen. I know a lot of people are fans. I'm not getting it yet. Nice music, but nothing special.
Knew this album when it came out. It hasn't aged well, but is still enjoyable. Half the songs are good, the other half are pretty bad.
First Listen. Good quality punk. LIke to hear more.
Changes and Life on Mars are great classic Bowie songs. First time hearing the rest of the album. 3/5
One of the easiest 5/5 I can give. Love this album. Heard it at least a thousand times over the years.
First Listen. Drive is the only song I knew before listening. It seems like a decent album.
first listen. It's ok. 2/5
First listen. Very interesting album. I need more listens to this one. I think this one will be rated higher in future listens but for now it is a 2/5.
I recognize the name, but I have never heard any of her music before. I love her sound though and I will definitely listen to more of her. This is my first listen. Absolutely love it, but need to hear it more! 3/5 for now.
First Listen. Besides the couple of songs that I knew, I didn't enjoy much of the rest of the album. It really isn't my kind of music. I do think that Work It is one of the best of the genre - so props to her for that one! 2/5
First listen. Nothing stands out to me on this album. Every song is very forgettable. Maybe it will get better next time I hear it. 2/5 for now.
Second Listen. Starting to really grow on me. I wasn't crazy about it the first time I heard it. 3/5
Easy 5/5... Can I give it a 6? Classic start to finish.
Know it well. Great Elton John album. 4/5
Second Listen. Still very enjoyable. There she goes is a perfect Alternative song. The rest of the album is still growing on me. Some of the songs have a modern 60's feel to them. So many great songs on this album. 3/5
Some albums are just nice and nothing more. For me this is one of them. My second time having this one come up in my daily listen. 2/5
An old-style that is hard to listen to for the first time in 2021. It's fine, and I'm sure it was great back in '65. 2/5
Haven't heard this one in a long time. It surprised me how good it was. I thought it was just a bunch of pop hits, but the music is good. 5/5
First listen. Pretty good for scream rock. 2/5
2nd listen. Starting to grow on me. 3/5
First listen. Bitter Sweet Memories has always been a favorite of mine. Never heard the rest of the album. I really like Sonnet as well. The rest of the album just kept getting better throughout the day. 2/5 for now.
The oldest son of Feli Kuti, Femi Kuti is just as talented! There are just some days when this is the perfect thing to listen to - today, for me, was one of those days. So glad to welcome this album into my life. I absolutely loved this album and I can't wait to get to know it better.
Some great songs on this album: Sweet Dream, Love is a Stranger but I think Jennifer stands out as my favorite. The Walk was enjoyable as well. Great sound. 3/5.
Brilliant. Always loved this album. 4/5
I've enjoyed many other Van Morrison albums more than this one. It might take a bit longer to appreciate this one. 2/5.
First Listen. There are a few truly great songs on this album. The rest of the album was unknown to me. 3/5
Lambchop? Never heard of them. But, you know what? I really like it. It is an interesting sound. I don't think it feels country or even alternative country at all. I think the songs seemed a big on the dull side the first time I heard it but they really started growing on me. The tone and feeling of the album is quite nice. Lyrically, it sounds like a hodgepodge of nonsense at times, but if you read between the lines you can get of gist of what they are saying (sometimes). Interesting none-the-less. I'm giving it only a 2/5 for now, but I am sure that will go up with further listens.
2nd listen in the past week. Enjoyable.
It's pretty good. But, nothing I would listen to outside of this list.
Such an old style. I'm sure is was good back in the day. 2/5
Good electronic music.
Oh Leonard, the Darker the better! Cheers brother, I'm sure you are up there still singing. Thanks for all you gave us.
I like the Sex Pistols, I like PIL, but this album... I didn't know it even existed... hard one to enjoy. Maybe after I listen a few more times... 2/5
Never heard of him before but his music sounds familiar. Either he is doing someone else's style or they are all doing his. Good for what it is. 2/5
Definitely my kind of music. Need to hear more of it. For sure. 2/5.
Sounds pretty good.
2nd listen. I'm really beginning to enjoy this album. Standouts: I'll Come Running, Sky Saw, St. Elmo's Fire, Zawinul Lava (sounds very much like the "song" from his ambient music album).
Ms. Jackson was the first Outkast songs I remember hearing from them. I loved it. What a great and unique sound they had. So Fresh and So Clean was pretty good too, BoB ok. This was the first time I heard the album though. They have a great sound. The explicit lyrics bring it down a peg for me though. Still a really great album. 3/5.
I really thought I was going to love this, but, honestly, I didn't. None of these songs stand out to me at all. I'm shocked. Maybe on another day, I'll like it more. 2/5
Haven’t listened to this in a long time.
Amazing. Really enjoyed this unique sound.
Its nice. 3/5
It's ok for an old style of music that just doesn't work anymore. 2/5.
One of my least favorite Tom Waits' albums. I don't get it. 2/5
Bring the noise is great.
Great album. 4/5. Standouts: No Sleep till Brooklyn, Fight For Your Right, Brass Monkey, Girls, Rhymin & Stealin', Hold it Now, Hit it, She's Crafty, Paul Revere.
The first time I heard this, I thought it was an odd album to have on a list like this, but it is starting to grow on me. Getting better each time I hear it. 3/5.
Its allright 2/5
Such a easy listen. Very enjoyable. 3/5
First Listen. Interesting sounds.
Awesome early Metallica! 4/5
Interesting. Got better as the day went on.
The Killing Moon is a great song. The rest of the album seems pretty good. I'd enjoy hearing this one again. 2/5 for now.
4.5 / 5.0 Such a great album! Most of the songs are iconic!
Not my favorite White Strips album, but there are a handful of gems on it.
