I fucking love this album. It rocks very hard for me.
Could have swore they were saying "please send me emails on weekends" on 'Return the Gift' which is actually super punk but nothing else really stood out for me.
Thought there were some notes of early primus and even som guitar that sounded a bit like phish. Overall I was impressed with a few of the songs (xyz especially) and thought that the 40 minute run Time went by crazy fast. Agree with Pat that I’ve never been a big fan of rush. Listening to the whole album gave me a better sense of their sound and earned a higher rating from me.
Between bars is the only one I really remembered. This was never my favorite work of his and that remains true. Reminded me of college a lot though.
I liked it. Thought it was great sound. Background music that you dont need to pay too much attention to in order to understand. Liked the added funk of it all.
I really liked this. There was so much sound that came out of one guy and a piano. The way is built in waves and crashed down to do it again was awesome.
I thought it was good for the era but not one I would rush to put back on.
This is an album that I loved. Mike touched base on the drums and I agree. It is just pure fun from start to finish and everyone in the band is on board. Maybe best one two punch ever to open an album with jump and panama. Just loved it.
Just too much going on. Couldn't get into it.
I thought this album was incredibly creative but I was kind of bored with it until the last three tracks. They really drove it home for me.
I liked this album. Had more of the Blur sound that I love than Parklife did.
This is the kind of music that got me into music in the first place. Rock guitar and great hooks. Will be listening to this album a lot.
I remember liking this album when it came out and still enjoyed the harmonies of it all but there is a reason I have not listened to it in the last decade. Just too slow for me.
I had never sat down and listened to this album before. Potentially the most "Springsteen writes music for blue collar America" Springsteen album. Feel like this is where he got the reputation. Really looking forward to all of the Bruce albums that show up on this list.
I loved all of the sounds of this album. Drum machines and heavy guitar sounded great and really could see the beastie boy influences.
I am sure it was a great album at the time and that a lot of artists covered each other at the time but I just couldn't get into the "I got a Woman" or especially the "Tutti Fruiti" covers. The rest of the songs were just okay for me but I do love "Blue Suede shoes" and "Blue Moon" as singles.
Really enjoyed this album and will add to my usual rotation. Early Clapton sounds amazing.
I enjoyed this album. Had never heard any of it before. Can really hear the David Bowie/Mott the Hoople style experimentation of the early 70s rock. You can see why this music was cited as an influence for such a wide array of bands and musical styles. Favorite songs for me were Rock on and Baby Boomerang.
I remember not owning this as a kid and that I felt like I was the only person I knew that didn't have it. I remember thinking it was just okay outside of the hits and I still feel that way 25 years later. I really liked some of the songs and I kind of hated some of the songs. Overall I just don't love the way that Billy Corrigan sounds.
Not much stood out for me from this album
More kitsch than anything else. Pretty brazen for him to release songs with the lyrics "sex is natural, sex is fun" during the height of AIDS awareness. But I was 5 so what do I know.
I love this album. All of my favorite Janis songs are on here.
There was not a single track on this album that made me want to listen to it again. Haven't done any research on it but not sure how it made this list.
Really loved a lot of the bass but thought that was the most redeeming quality. Actually liked San Jose quite a bit.
I actually enjoyed this more listening to it now than I remember it. They are a better band then I give them credit for.
I liked this album start to finish. Lot of songs I had not heard before. Height of Bowie and you can tell.
Almost played like a greatest hits album. Incredible that all of these songs came out on one album. It is truly incredible how many great songs they put out in such a short amount of time.
Nothing really stood out for me here. Wasn't a single song where I looked up to see what the song title was so I could listen again later.
Always loved the yardbirds since I started listening in college but that was more singles like "over under sideways down". It was a nice blast from the past. "Jeffs Boogie" even though short and sweet still sounds amazing and Jeff Beck on the guitar would have made any band stand out. I also loved "what do you want".
Perfect Hair band album. Love ballads, rock songs, screaming guitars. There were five songs (including the hits) that I liked. Raise your had was fun and I had never heard that before.
I enjoyed this album. Really like the drawl and the haunting tones in her singing voice.
Tom Morello is the man. The guitar is the best I have heard yet on this project.
I thought this was just mediocre.
I liked this album more than I was expecting to. But I forgot to rate originally and cant remember the particular songs I liked.
I really liked this album and the timing was perfect. Great to hear these takes I had not heard before on the classics. Got me in the holiday mood when I needed it.
I just don't love the music or the vocals here. Not my style.
No single track stuck out to me as better or worse than the others. So I guess that is saying something.
This is exactly what I expected from this album. Decent music with an 80s sound and horns and the lyrics are almost impossible to understand. Sometimes they literally overlapped with the backup vocals saying something else. Very confusing lyrically.
I didn't think I would like this album at all but was pleasantly surprised. Really liked Disney Girls, Student Demonstration Time, Long Promised Road.
I loved this album start to finish., Even the songs I didn't know were really fun to listen to and great 80s rock that you expect from Billy Joel. Loved Vienna and Get it right the first time.
Thought that this was interesting a nd a great listen all the way through. Will definitely be going back.
I like David Grays sound but it is not something that I am searching out generally.
This gets a second star because I thought the drumming was excellent.
Outside of the hit singles nothing stood out for me on this album.
Golden year is maybe my favorite Bowie song. Really enjoyed Stay that I had never heard before.
It is wild how much better this sounds in headphones. Changed the whole dynamic.
I love the sound they produce. So smooth and feels so old school. Huge tribe fan.
Some of it I liked and some of it I found grating.
Super relaxing album but not one that I will go back to often
I love this album. Everything hits for me including the live "bye bye love".
Really liked this album and the way they introduced sound into music. That whole genre is great.
I understand the place that Punk is coming from (kind of) but this feels so sloppy and not in a good way. The lyrics are just random as hell (other than the werewolf theme from the whole album?) and I didn't love any of the musicians.
I was very surprised when Our House started playing. This was too far out for me and just seemed jumbled
I love the signature Cure sound but this album was too much of it. It almost felt like one long song and there was hardly any excitement behind it.
I didn't have any love for this album. Found it kind of boring.
I liked the last track the most. I really enjoy 10CC as a band generally but nothing popped for me except Oh Efendi.
I liked this album and admittedly have not listened to hardly any country joe. It was a nice change of pace to hear some good old psychedelic rock. Bet this was a fun band to see live.
I didn’t know much going in but really enjoyed thia
I had never heard any of these tracks and I loved the album. Reminds me of when I discovered 'Tonights the Night' and was blown away by Neil. One of my favorite all time artists and lyricists.
I like the funk that incubus brings in later work and you can see it start to develop on this album. The DJ they added for this is fantastic as well.
Hit after hit after hit. I even loved the lesser known tracks.
Loved the twang of this album. You can really hear the influence it had on sturgill simpson and others like him.
I liked this more than I did birth of the cool
Didn' find anything remarkable or that stood out on this album personally.
I like these old jazz albums a lot as background music and should probably try and more attention to the arrangements but I feel like a piano makes a big difference in jazz for me.
This is less angry than I remember and much more sad.
Started out great for me with Glad and I enjoy most of the tracks. I just kind of hate the actual track of "John Barleycorn Must Die".
I liked the energy that came off this album even if most of the songs are covers. You can really hear the influence they had on the black keys on "Have love will travel". Garage rock sound.
I wasn't impressed by the synth really. Just okay for me.
Liked it towards the end much more than when I started it. Didn't think I was enjoying it and then found myself nodding my head and tapping my foot by mid album. Need to learn Spanish.
Kirk Hammett is amazing. One of my favorite guitarist to listen to. Don't love Mettalica as a whole but love that guitar.
Was not interested
One of the best albums of all time in my opinion. Thunder road opening and jungleland closing is an incredible way to bookend a piece of art.
I have never listened to Frank Zappa for more than maybe one song on a playlist playing at a restaurant or bar or something. Had no idea how much I would enjoy it. Very "far out" at times but also seemed very organized for entire 12 minute tracks. Loved it.
Loved everything about this album still
I did enjoy this older recording when that generally is not the case with the Beatles. The older the worse for me generally but I thought they picked some very interesting covers and I liked the way they set up the album.
I thought this album started out great but lagged a LOT with the last two tracks.
Didn't love it. Sounds a lot like the beach boys original stuff but also kind of like a children's album. Liked the slowed down 'Good Vibrations'. Hated 'Mrs. O'learys cow'.
More industrial rock than I would normally care for but the way Reznor produces music is just so interesting. The sounds he creates are unlike anyone elses.
This was made and sounds exactly like it was made in 1987. Nothing stood out for me other than how strange it was at times.
Nothing stood out to me on this album. Fine production but nothing to write home about personally.
Fun album for drinking on the weekend.
not ashamed to say that this is my favorite radiohead album.
Aerosmith was my first favorite rock band and the nostalgia here is overwhelming. Did not know what FINE stood for until I read this article but makes more sense now as an adult. Love so many of these songs.
Exceptional horns the whole way through and love the piano on track 2
I loved every track on this album. The CCR sound is so unique.
I hated this album. Trying to be so dance/pop but just sucks.
This has most of my favorite Dylan tracks on it.
I actually liked this way more than I thought I would. It dragged in the middle for me a bit but started out hot and finished strong.
Thank God this is over.
I have loved this album for years. Between talking Book and this album I don't think Stevie could have really done anything poorly in the 70s.
This is the first album they made living in CA and you can hear the influence and it sounds awesome.
they are trying and Navarro is a pretty good guitarist but I have always hated Perry Farrell and the sound of his voice. Just not enough here to make it stand out for me.
I don't understand why this album received so many accolades. Seemed very standard 80s music to me.
Hated it. just so much unnecessary noise. I get the experimentation and the new way of being punk but this felt just stupid to me.
I love the raw energy that the white stripes had on these first few albums.
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this album and Radiohead in general.
I really love the harmonies of the California 70s and this holds up.
I love Aretha and this album only helped to cement that.
This really had moments where it felt like a synth forward Talking Heads band. I liked it more and more as the album progressed.
I liked the instrumentation quite a bit but the lyrics were a little too much for me. So out there that I had trouble relating at all.
I do not like Kate Bush.
Very good disco album and what a way to open up but outside of that nothing very inspiring.
Solid album from start to finish.
Its punk from start to finish. Not great for me but I did like parts of it.
Didn't love this album. Thought it was just okay.
Wow. Full of hits on this and the sound was sometimes SO 1984 that it was wild. I loved this album and the covers were all great.
Good lively background music
This is a great album that you can tell is towards the end of their run
I was excited for this but was let down. I think she had an incredible voice but the lounge singer vibe on this album didn't work for me. Nothing stood out.
Frou Frou was really the only song I liked but there was nothing offensive so it gets a two
I really loved this album. Lots of nostalgia from grade school and even though I have heard Pour some sugar on me a million times I still think its a great 80s rock song. Animal is also a great track.
I thought this would be overly funky but it was just a great album start to finish.
I thought I was going to hate this album and kind of remember hating it when it came out but on another listen it was bumped up to mediocre for me.
I love this album. Perfectly sad and awesome at the same time
I did not love this album. It is funky and has a house party vibe but nota single track stood out for me above the others. Was bummed about it.
not my favorite beatles album but you can see how they are transforming in this album. More experimentation than the first pop albums.
Jeff Beck is every bit as good of a guitarist as Eric Clapton in my opinion and this bluesy English rock is excellent. Some of the best on the list so far.
I used to listen to this in College and didn't love it. Even harder for me to understand now. All I can really hear are the cuss words.
The punk indie rock worked sometimes but other times I didn't get it. I hated how it sounded on the cover of 'Should I stay or should I go' but liked it on 'Broken Hearts'.
I thought I would love this album but outside of four or five songs I thought it was pretty mediocre.
Outside of two songs I just don't like Yes. The prog rock thing doesn't work for me I guess.
I fucking love this album. It rocks very hard for me.
This was real hit and miss for me. I really liked certain tracks (mostly towards the beginning of the album) and there were tracks that I really wanted to skip.
I always think that they have interesting lyrics and that the singers voice is unique but sometimes they just lack
Just cant get into Bjork
fuck this album and this band in general
Better than I remember this band being. Notes of Radiohead at times.
hell of a guitar player and I really enjoyed the first track with santana
There is a lot going on with this album and I liked most of it. Feel it was a little long though. Could have cut it down to about 60 minutes.
Thoroughly enjoyed but have to wonder if women like Johnny Cash at all
just dont think the pogues are for me
I really enjoyed this more than I thought I might. The Americana that just drips off this album is so great and Anti Redneck its perfect.
No one sounds like CCR.
Really enjoyed this album. The vocals compliment the music really well.
There are about 6 out of 10 great songs on here and two of those are top 5 Stevie songs overall. Worth the listen.
Recently fallen back into a Nirvana fan boy hole. Really enjoying everything they did right now
some very fast drums and excellent guitar playing at times but overall I hated it
I didn't love this as much as I thought I might. That late 80s early 90s hip hop is one of my favorite styles. But the first half of this album lacked for me. Got real good in the back end though.
I hated this
I think this is his best album. I love how he samples so many types of music in one album but it just doesn't pop like I want it to
I liked this. Almost liked every track. Great background music to work to.
Not bad but definitely not great. I liked Bloodsport
Exactly what I expected it to be. Great album to start a morning off.
I was very surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this. With the exception of a few of the last tracks I loved it. Gets a five because of how much I was taken back.
Its hard not to love his voice.
I really like Karen O and crew and had never listened to this album. Just familiar with the hits. Great album.
I should probably sit down with these more instrumental ones and try headphones but they are fantastic background music while I work.
This is one of my favorite albums of all time and was a real changing point for me in music in general. 'Do you Realize' is still one of the most beautiful songs ever written to me.
I have never heard John Martyn before but really liked it. Very chill. Super relaxing.
This gets three stars just for Rock Lobster alone
Could have swore they were saying "please send me emails on weekends" on 'Return the Gift' which is actually super punk but nothing else really stood out for me.
Fine background music for working in the afternoon. Keeps some energy in the room. Not a single I would go back and listen to though.
i dont even want to waste the time on this one
Great album. Love almost every song outside of the title track. Aja is just too long for me.
how can you not like this album
Such a fantastic album that really showcases how music went from short pop songs to more instrument focused jam songs
I thought this was fine.
I love this album. All of its weirdness is perfectly aligned.
Didnt care for it
wouldn't come back to it
Enjoying the rawness of this album. Not overly punk. More rock than anything in my opinion except for 'LA Blues' and I liked it.
I love the beat of Look Of Love part 1. Fun 80s pop. I dig it.
What a way to start an album. Honestly really enjoyed about 9/11 tracks on this.
Was really enjoying the first three tracks and then it kind of fell off a cliff
I got into this album. Great funk bass and loved the keyboard.
Hard not to enjoy a Marley album. Enjoyed this take on No Woman.
Thought this was average psych rock at best.
I couldn't love the sound of Elvis's voice more than I do. He could sing whatever he wanted and I would listen.
Master of puppets is by far and away the best single on this album.
Don't love REM an this album sums them up perfectly for me. Average all the way around.
Not as electric as advertised
Hated this. The song "Indians" was so wrong. Good drums though.
Was surprised that I enjoyed this album after years of hating this band. The Clap really threw me off. Did not see that coming. Good people is a fantastic tune.
This was fine. Not as punk as I thought it would be but you can tell that is from the bowie production. Enjoyed his version of china girl but glad that Bowie did it better
Killing moon will always be a favorite of mine but there aren't a ton of other great tracks here
I have not listened to this since college but I remember loving the first 6 tracks but cant remember the back half of the album at all. Probably because I didnt really enjoy the end of it. Track 2 is still incredible the way his voice sounds with the guitar.
Rio is a great opener an this is full of fantastic 80s synth pop but only two songs really stand out still and those are both of the hits
Loved it - the music and lyrics are all written so well.
Fantastic. Old man is starting to mean a lot more than it used to.
Good for what it is. Interesting to listen to a record from 1957 and how it sounded
I really enjoyed listening to a young Bob Dylan sing live
nothing much here
Great background/work music
Good album. Really highlights the indie rock of the early 90s sound. Would skip the second album.
absolutely loved this album. Had never even heard of this band before but you can here the influence on Blondie it had
Such a good album. Knopfler is so underrated.
Better than I thought it would be. Liked tracks 5 and 6
This gets two stars because it wasn't bad. Not great or good but definitely not bad.
Wow. I loved every second of this album
not for me
Such a sad album. Sounds like Spiritualized 30 years later
Didn't know what to expect but it made me like Leonard Cohen so much less than I did.
I like Solomon's voice. It has the perfect soul sound. Not a ton of hits coming off of this though.
The way he can manipulate the octaves of his voice are insane. Beautiful album. Want to like sit by a river and listen to it in headphones.
Almost too artsy for me at most points in the album but some great tracks
One of my favorite albums. Such incredible guitar and drum. No wonder Santana was such a star.
This album rocks.
Favorite Kraftwerk album for sure. Robots and Model are so good.
Had never heard of this and the description wasn't much in Wikipedia but I liked it a lot. Would be good in the background or sitting around in headphones. Lots of good sound play and reverb play.
I like the spoken word style that common and other rappers at this time were doing. Brings me back to feeling cool in college.
Loved this album. Rod in his prime.
I had no idea about smoke on the water and like the song even more now. Also highway star kind of rocks. Did not like space trucking at all
Thought this just sounded like the early 90s. Nothing really stuck out but nothing was bad.
This was fun but the double album was too long.
I have a real soft spot for meatloaf for reasons I am unsure of and I loved this
