A classic, I have it on vinyl. More bluesy/country than other albums (violin/piano). Quite a mix of serious and goofy songs. Rating 3 since it's mostly carried by two songs.
Solid 70s rock feel. Strong album for a debut. Organ is a nice touch.
Love this album. Stellar instrumentals with funny lyrics. Surprise Kendrick. Honestly all the features are great. Lara says "I didn't get a chance to appreciate all the lyrics but I enjoyed all the melodies".
Must have been an odd release at the time. Lara says "interesting use of instruments from the orient" haha. Overall pretty strong album with only a couple weird tracks.
Decent punk/grunge/pop album. A couple snoozers but mostly solid. I do quite like Love's voice. Lara says "I didn't particularly care for it".
Nice sound for Bob Dylan. I like the melodies and tone but not super into the drawn-out storytelling. Would have to listen a few more times to get into the lyrics.
Decent album overall but not really my preference. A couple songs were straight terrible.
Great album, have listened several times. Love the extra conversations with audience and announcements for inmates or requests for water. Nice performances with June Carter.
Pretty interesting jam album. Some songs drag on a bit. But mostly nice melodies. Some people might get bored but I can get into it.
Very unique album, like David Bowie but with more genres mixed in. I can see how it might have inspired many other flavors of pop music.
Not sure how I felt about this album. Definitely some good blues riffs, but a lot of clattering and noise. I think I would have rated higher but it was a little too disorganized.
Some nice melodies and a bit more funk/soul compared to their debut.
It sounded good but nothing in particular stood out. Could use another listen.
Pretty interesting album. I haven't listened to much art rock before. No sleepers on this album. Liked the melodies and the mood.
No-nonsense bossa nova album. Short and sweet. Strong album throughout, no frills or gimmicks.
George Michael is ok in small doses but this was way too much weird sexy 80s music.
Solid album. Like the instrumentals and the melodies.
Pretty enjoyable album. I'm not super into electronic music but I liked the melodies here. Reminded me of Spyro the Dragon.
Album has so many listens but I'm not really into it. Lyrics are pretty sad and serious.
Interesting experimental album. It didn't feel like there were any standout moments, but it had a good feel overall. Good background music, not sure I would want to listen to it with full attention.
Overall wasn't too impressed by this album. Disorder was good. I think the tone of the rest of the album doesn't quite resonate with me.
Great album, one of my favorite jazz albums. Great tones from all musicians. Interesting Monk melodies. No weak links anywhere.
Didn't really care for this album. Found the songs boring and too much jam.
Quite liked this album. Tone was somewhat dark but very melodic. Singer has a great vocal tone. Reminded me of a more bluesy Bowie.
Like an album full of power ballads. Overall enjoyable. No real standout tracks for me.
Decent classic rap album. Really liked Doin Our Own Dang (most popular track). Lots of tracks had more upbeat melodies instead of darker or more serious tones of modern rap.
Have listened to this album countless times - own it on vinyl. Jazz classic. Maybe the most Herbie Hancock of Herbie Hancock albums? Chameleon and Watermelon Man obviously carry the album, but side 2 is still groovy.
Solid grooves all around. I prefer the uptempo tracks to the ballads. Shining star is a monster.
Pretty great blues rock album. Good mix of vocals, jams, and great licks.
Second album confirms I don't care much for Neil Young. There were a few tracks I enjoyed.
Was disappointed to find it a little boring. It's more toward the groove side than funk. Many long jam tracks with repetitive melodies and lyrics. I prefer the songs where it tips toward the rock style. The live version of Maggot Brain is pretty cool though.
Overall pretty solid album, though the title track carries hard. A couple stinkers but more good tracks. Leans more toward the political and social messages.
Liked this album a lot. Pretty haunting and moody throughout, simple instrumentals and great vocals.
Enjoyed the first half of the album but the second half seemed to drag on. I can hear a lot of 90s influences from here though it's not my favorite.
Some pretty nice tracks mixed in with some more average ones. I liked the vibe but I found the album dragged on toward the end. Penitentiary Philosophy was my favorite.
I think some of the melodies and lyrics are pretty cool, but overall it was just a long country-rock album. Got pretty bored by the end of first half. No stand-out tracks for me.
Great album. Favorite track is The Beast. Really nice mix of hip hop and chill beats. Singing from Lauryn Hill is great on the hooks. No snoozers anywhere.
Solid classic rock album. Really liked that it was short and sweet.
Was an interesting listen but I don't typically enjoy this genre. Was moody and mellow without being boring.
Pretty decent album throughout though it really gets bumped up due to the two singles.
Pretty interesting and unique album. Like punk rock with real instruments. Talented instrumentals behind shouting lyrics.
Don't really know how to score this album. It was pretty good for a Christmas album, but I don't particularly like Christmas music. The last track with Phil Spector was creepy.
This album is awesome. Is it post-punk? Industrial? I don't know but I love it. Some tracks are sparse and minimalist. Others are a waterfall of sound.
Very solid metal album. Nothing groundbreaking, but decent tracks throughout.
Not really my preference. Kind of mopey and weird. Didn't enjoy the melodies much.
Pretty killer rap album. Couple off tracks here and there. The title track is 10/10. Album holds up.
Overall enjoyable but some songs really dragged on into jam territory. Superstition is a masterpiece.
Very solid classic country album. I don't listen to much but would listen to this again.
Little bit odd but had some good grooves. Weird electro hip hop?
Solid blues album but not perfect. Emotion comes through.
Really liked this album. Had only listened previously to a handful of tracks by The Cure. Especially liked The Hanging Garden. Album was a bit dark and moody with great instrumentals.
Great album. Probably my favorite by AC/DC. Not much more to say about it.
Liked this album a lot. Again, don't listen to much country but this had nice melodies and lyrics.
This was pretty interesting. Was weird to hear the two covers using Indian instruments, thought Light My Fire was awesome. I think I prefer the more traditional tracks on side 2. Overall solid album.
Was ok. Some of the songs/lyrics were jammy and weird. Preferred the straight rock songs
Overall didn't care for it. It was weird without being interesting or melodic.
Pretty cheery, short and sweet. Screams early 70s. Some good tracks but overall ok.
Don't usually go for crooners, but the album was pretty good. Like the rendition of Anything Goes.
Pretty good album, no real standouts but very enjoyable.
Kind of interesting hip hop album though it didn't really hook me in.
I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Some tracks just ok but several great songs.
It might start to drag on a bit long but overall a masterpiece, tons of great tracks showcasing Hendrix's range from bluesy to psych.
Pretty interesting. I didn't like it as much as I hoped but I can see how it was influential. Probably one of the first hip hop albums?
Eclectic album that I liked but not much stood out to me. Poppy and likeable.
Could be used as a template for west coast rap. Strong delivery by Cube. Great lyrics and beats.
Masterpiece. Solid heavy metal album the whole way through. Basically every track is a home run.
La Grange is 10/10 but everything else was lacking.
Honestly didn't care too much for this album. Lyrics were all about sex and I didn't enjoy the melodies either. It was just fine.
It was dark and moody, but I didn't find it all that interesting. I wanted to like it more.
Kind of moody and dark and low key in an interesting way. Liked it more than I expected.
Really interesting album. Moody alternative rock with a little bit of grunge? And real instruments.
It's a unique sound but I don't really care for Morrissey. The album was a bit all over the place. Prefer a rawer punk sound.
Sort of a strange album. Some songs very much like Dylan. Overall enjoyed but no real standouts.
It was alright but I don't think it really clicked for me. It seems like it lost it's way somewhere in the middle.
Really nice electronic album. Was it a bunch of analog synths? Sounded like an 80s movie soundtrack.
Didn't care much for the album. What's Love got to do with it is great, but every other track is forgettable.
Quite liked this album. Is it indie-punk? Alternative? A little dark and a little grimy.
What is there to say? Have listened to it a hundred times and it holds up. The second half drags a little bit but the first half is all fire.
This album is so weird, in the best way possible. It's not particularly melodic. But it covers every facet of prog rock. I don't think it's perfect, but solid throughout.
Quite liked this. The Roots but in Spanish?
Very solid emotional grunge. Very moody in a good way. Pain and depression comes across in every track.
I don't know much about mambo but this album was great. Especially liked Hong Kong Mambo and Mambo Gozón. There's a certain mood for this type of music and this album will get you there.
Masterpiece. Have it on vinyl. Great melodies with a complex sound. Baba O'Riley still kills despite being overplayed. Behind Blue Eyes is a great change of pace on the second half. Love it.
I bet this album is very polarizing. I didn't particularly like it. It wanted to be moody and depressing but I just found it boring. I don't care for the rambling stories for lyrics.
Really liked it this time around. I swear I've listened before and didn't get too into it. Definitely an influential punk album.
Overall enjoyed it but no real standouts for me. I probably don't listen to the lyrics enough. Prine has a goofy vocal tone that I kind of enjoy.
Interesting glam rock. Get it On is great of course. But I thought it was the only standout.
Pretty interesting and eclectic album mix. I can definitely see influences on Lorde and indie pop vocals.
Pretty good esoteric and sparse tracks that I quite liked.
Definitely enjoyed the instrumentals and the whole vibe. Would be perfect for a rainy drive.
Decent blues album but got into jam territory a bit too much
First song carries hard but the rest of the album still very nice.
Really liked this. Very soothing and melodic. I didn't realize this was such a recent album. I prefer it to her previous album.
Well it was interesting to say the least. I think I don't really get it. It sounds like a carnival villain soundtrack. Wanted to like it more.
Found it just ok. Very boring in parts.
Really solid punk/post-punk album. Some hardcore riffs, and some melodic bits. Enjoyed the punk yelling.
Had some interesting moments but overall I found myself getting bored. Not as poppy as Sergio Mendes for example.
I need another listen but was pretty interested. Loved Elevation and Marquee Moon.
Honestly found it pretty boring. Really points out how many of his songs are the same pace, tone, and instruments. The Dylan sound was turned up to 11.
I enjoyed the slow and melancholy tone but overall didn't much like the album. Felt a bit repetitive and boring.
Decent indie pop but not really my favorite. Some catchy tunes and no real standouts.
Strong album from Adele. Only a couple tracks that were more pop that I thought were a bit weak. I could listen to power ballads all day. Hello is 10/10 and also really liked Sweetest Devotion.
Didn't care much for the album at all. It seems to be carried by All I Wanna Do but that song isn't my favorite either. Crow's voice is nice but the country-pop style doesn't work. Ballads don't feel sincere especially since I just listened to Adele.
Nice enough album, a couple hits and the rest were pretty chill.
Pretty interesting prog. Some weird atheist lyrics? But overall just squeaks out a 4-star.
Classic, have it on vinyl. I think it's very close to 5 stars, but there are a couple snoozers on side 2.
I think I ended up liking it better than Unknown Pleasures. I'm not too into the melodies but kind of liking the darker tone. It's beautifully moody. Strong finish to the album.
I wanted to like it more but found it a bit bland after the first few tracks.
Really liked this album. A blend of ethereal sounds, electronic tunes, and noise.
It's not quite my jam but did enjoy her powerful voice and fun melodies. Almost a 4.
I like the energy but nothing much else. Found it tough to get through.
Easy 5 stars. Wild to think that Davis, Coltrane, and Adderly all combined on this. If you like jazz at all, this is it.
Found it to be a bit of boring dad rock. It's consistent but I wasn't really into it.
Solid front to back. Album definitely has the hits. Only medium sappy.
I found it much better than Faith, but it still didn't resonate with me. It was more somber and serious.
Cult of Personality is a masterpiece, carries the album but the rest is solid.
I don't particularly care for jazz vocals, but if you must listen to it, this is it.
Foo Fighters definitely have the hits. I liked this album more than expected even though it doesn't have any of the biggest FF tracks. Good mix of hard rock with punk influence.
Didn't find much to like in this album. Felt like typical indie-folk music. Could be from a coffee shop or hipster store. Inoffensive and boring.
The best live rock album? Maybe. Everything sounds great and love the commentary added. It's very close to 5 stars.
Another classic. One of the best guitar albums. Full creative control to Jimi. Back to back hits.
Found it just ok. Much preferred Let It Bleed (which I only scored 3?). Stupid Girl and Under My Thumb are weird. UK version doesn't have Paint It Black?
Started fairly strong but really dropped off toward the end. Early tracks were decent dance jams, but the last three or so were slow ballads. I found it hard to get through the whole thing.
Solid punk classic. I didn't find it to be quite the masterpiece everyone thinks. But a solid 4 from me.
It's pretty good but doesn't go as hard as Machine Head. Child in Time was a pretty interesting prog/ballad.
"The Boss" just doesn't resonate with me. The hits are ok. Some great saxophone saves it a bit. I get strong boomer vibes.
