Based on The King of Rock and Roll, I was expecting to hear more New Wave-influenced pop, but I enjoyed the more atmospheric pop ballads as well. Thanks to my late English friend David for introducing me to Prefab Sprout a few years back.
I really enjoyed this mix of fun and Britpop.
It's kind of groovy, meditative, and a bit trance-like.
It was okay.
This has a California drug-fueled country rock vibe.
I've loved this album since it was released.
It was okay but all the songs started to sound alike about halfway through.
Quite pleasant for work background music.
An all-time masterpiece. So many wonderful songs on this album.
Another good one from Elvis (he's the king) Costello.
Not bad, though I don't know that I would want to own this one.
This has a definite 1970s San Francisco hippie vibe. I enjoyed it.
The folk-rock songs were okay, but I ended up skipping most of the improvisations. I feel like appreciating this album would require ingesting illegal substances.
A classic. I'd forgotten how many excellent songs are on this album.
First time listening to the whole thing. Their positivity is refreshing.
A bit of Scottish romance and angst.
I had never listened to one of her albums before.
I listened to this repeatedly during the summer of 1977, and it's still a favorite.
Yaaaaaas Gang of Four! One of my all-time favorite bands and albums.
Pleasant background music.
Great album. "One More Try" is one of my favorites.
Offensive album cover but Janis is a queen of rock.
Classic new wave pop.
It felt sort of monotonous.
I don't know how I missed this band when I was in college.
If you've seen the excellent Amazon Prime series Patriot, then this album may remind you of the songs that John composes and sings about his line of work.
Kind of boring.
I listened to them a lot in high school.
Dude, if you're gonna be consistently flat on the second song's high note, sing a different note.
