Intro track is amazing, rest of the album is average to good except Back In Our Minds, which I don’t like at all. Would give 3.5 if that was an option.
I’ve apparently been heavily sleeping on Thin Lizzy. Fantastic album, only track I didn’t love was Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed.
Can't decide if he wants to be Lennon or Prince, sucks at both.
Not really my thing. Didn't hate it, wont ever listen to it again.
Take On Me is an all-timer, the rest of the album didn’t do much for me.
Can't deny the influence but not really all that enjoyable to me. Pretty repetitive.
It’s catchy as hell.
Eh. Not much to say. Boring. Couple decent songs.
This album sucks. Paul Simon sucks.
Loved everything about the album except Ferry’s singing. The bass is ridiculous.
Solid debut but pales in comparison to their next two albums.
Liked it more than I thought I would. Manchild and Phoney Ladies are the highlights. Not a fan of the LL Cool J inspired rapping.
I've heard this album a lot growing up, one of my dad's favorites, so there's some nostalgia here. That said, I don't like it.
No idea what this is but it bangs.
One of the greatest hip hop albums of all time and the absolute pinnacle of cocaine rap. Still sounds as fresh as the first time I heard it. An almost flawless album, the one minor flaw being the amount of skits.
I appreciate how weird it is, but it’s not very pleasant to listen to.
I actually really dug the first song, but the rest of the album was kind of an inoffensive snooze.
It's Elvis. You either like it or you don't.
This album taught me calculus.
Pretty boring. Honestly didn't even bother finishing it.
I first heard this album years ago and wrote him off as another failed DJ Premier pet project in the vein of Group Home. After listening to this again, I have no idea what I was on because this is a fantastic album. Jeru has some real dumb lines but he says it all with such command that you can't help but go along with it, same with Premier's production. Easy 5 mics.
Nobody listens to techno
It's pretty bland but not an unpleasant listen. A pretty generous 3 mics, might've been a 2 on a bad day. Under the Boardwalk is the highlight.
Hated it. Most of it sounded like 80s sitcom theme song music to me. Dear God was the best track and even that didn’t really vibe with me.
Really good album but a weird choice to be the sole Roots inclusion. It's one of their weaker offerings, which just shows how impressive of a discography they have.
Surprised how much I liked it
Looking down the barrel of a gun is arguably the second greatest BB song, the first being Intergalactic, but as a whole, I'm not a huge fan of this album which I know is sacrilege to some people I know, but they can get fucked.
As a whole, I found the album to be a pleasant listen but looking back, I can’t really recall any individual song.
I’m not a huge fan of the music, but I love the album. There’s just something about singing about shooting someone to a crowd of dangerous criminals.
Dire Straits sound much better live.
Not my thing. One extra star for influencing the Beatles.
Not really my type of music but ended up really enjoying it. The track with Timbaland would’ve veen the best track on the album if it didn’t have Timbaland.
Classic. Love how it’s simultaneously upbeat and morbid.
