First album of the generator. Quite a famous Neil Young album, but not one I've listened to (Harvest being my most familiar album of his), though of course I know the track "My My, Hey Hey". Thought this album quite strange, in that it jumps around in style and genre. Latter half of the album gave me a sort of glam rock vibe!
Not my favourite Steely Dan album, Aja is pretty hard to beat. Nevertheless, this is pretty good, the final two tracks in particular.
I have an irrational dislike of Nick Cave, don't know when it started, so the idea of an 80 minute double album does not appeal in the slightest. I lasted about 25 minutes.
Delightfully weird album. Enjoyed this a lot.
Classic. Songs a little overlong at times though, with not quite enough progression and development. Worthy album on the 1,000 list just for ‘Brown Paper Bag’ alone.
Good, not great.
'Autopsy' was a song I had added to the 'Best of Discover Weekly' playlist I keep on Spotify. Never went on to listen to the album.
Interesting album. Really intrigued by 'Death of a Disco Dancer' — sounds like it could be an early Radiohead song!
Couple good songs, but Pearl Jam have always felt never more than safe and middle of the road for me.
Interesting. Enjoyed this. Sits well alongside Gang of Four's 'Entertainment'.
Feeling good, feeling great, how are you?
Typical Elvis Costello for me, bluesy and groovy, wry lyrics.
Too busy for me. Like a fruit machine: too much stimulus it’s overwhelming!
Some great singles, but doesn't half get repetitive after a while: 2 bar vocal loop, breakbeat, and repeat
Loved it. Ends very abrupltly though.
Always thought this album started amazingly well, but loses steam at “Neon Wilderness”, picks back up briefly with “Lucky Man” only to immediately peter out again. Some great songs, and singles, but not one of the great long players for me.
Couldn’t really get into it, mix and master sound really bad
Definitely of its time
Contains maybe the most 80’s synths that have ever been synthesised
Fantastic, enjoyed this immensely
Pretty enjoyable album this one
Really great storytelling lyrics. And the production, mix and master are very good indeed: love the stereo panning, the BV stacks and the reverbs on the lead. Incredible for an album recorded in 1959.
Pretty good. Only really know them for ‘Don’t You Want Me’ so it was nice to hear other, darker, material.
Great first half, wasn’t massively engaged as it continued
I love the Police, but always find this album incredibly strange. First half is pretty terrible, then all of a sudden Every Breath You Take enters and it gets good.
Some nice riffs, but all very samey
Couple nice songs, but many of them are just insipid and interminably overlong
Nice enough, but not a patch on Five Leaves Left
Self indulgent, overwrought, journeyman drivel
