I'm sorry Ms. Jackson ooooo! Enjoyed B.O.B. - Bombs Over Baghdad. I remember years ago there was a The Clash mash-up; London Booted, Spanish Bombs Over Baghdad, https://youtu.be/ZgLTO_LqOQA
I've only heard of Curtis Mayfield's Move On Up before, never listened to any of his albums. Enjoyed the slow steady funky beats and bass.
I used to enjoy this album, but re-listening now it felt a bit too striped back. On a tangent, I recall some guy adding his own bass tracks to this, releasing it as "Redd Blood Cells", jeez that was nearly 20 years ago! http://www.reddkross.com/features/RBC/
Get It On! Enjoyed it.
I hadn't listened to the album before. The title track is great. As an album as a whole, it felt all over the place, and dated. I couldn't tell if the mid-tracks like "Dreamin'" and "You Are" were taking the piss or not?
I enjoyed re-listening to this album, more than previously. Felt that it works as a whole album, rather than any standout tracks. Good guitars, good lyrics.
I like Bowie. Hadn't listened before. Odd album. Opening instrumental, very short 2nd track, I like "Sound and Vision", although fade out endings generally bug me. The last few (mostly) instrumental tracks felt otherworldly. Most likely an album I'd need to listen to many times to get the appreciation that bigger Bowie fans have.
I didn't like it. Aside from Heroes - which I still like, despite it being overplayed by the media over the past 18 months - the rest of the album felt too self-indulgent. Maybe it's a better album when listening late at night, after a few glasses of wine.
Cult of Personality. What an opener! I wasn't too familiar with the rest of the album. Enjoyed it, but nothing else really stood out.
It was alright.
Some albums need more than a day to appreciate them. Hadn't heard of Hugh Masekela or this album before. Without a doubt he's highly talented. Good vibes. From my one-time listening, it felt like good background music, to work or walk to, or sitting in a coffee shop. "Where's my frappuccino damnit?!"
Partly of my hope with doing the 1001 albums was to find a hidden gem that I hadn't heard of before... I think this is one of them. From my first listen, I enjoyed it, no idea of the lyrics meaning, but felt really good. Musically it's a great mix: vibrant, pleasant, upbeat, dreamy and (in places) hauntingly beautiful.
As much as I try to like PJ Harvey, I always end up getting annoyed with her music.
It's alright, good for passive listening (background music).
I wasn't overly familiar with The Flaming Lips. I enjoyed this album. The opener Fight Test threw me slightly, I initially thought it was a Cat Stevens cover, (then I read the back story on Wikipedia, interesting!)
I wonder if it's a little dated? Still, a classic pop/rock album!
