Charlie 2na has one of the best voices in hip-hop. J5's harmonies and group floor is amazing. Cut Chemist and Numark also incredible.
Inconsistent effort overall. Some classics, others entirely forgettable. Amazing studio musicians though. Easy to forget that before his public life became such a mess that this was a portrait of Michael at the crest of his height before it would all come crashing down. Enough Cabot be said for the effects that Quincy Jones had on Michael's catalog.
Listening to Off the Wall after Bad is... weird. There are some classic disco-adjacent jams on this record. More Quincy Jones magic. Again, the session players are top-notch.
Good album overall, the "extra" content on the reissue just makes it seem bloated and repetitive. Outstanding musicianship. Their cover of Seals & Crofts classic is better than the original IMO.
IMO not Mayfield's best work, but it's hard to beat 70s Soul/Funk. That album cover is the shit, however.
I generally prefer Coltrane's earlier work. This is a little more challenging than I want to listen to on a regular basis but the musicianship is undeniable.
This is music for theater kids. Is this a concept album? Like Screamin' Jay Hawkins before him and Marilyn Manson after him, the image of the artist is so much bigger than the actual music.
This is the soundtrack of white people Twitter.
A collection of sonic sketches.
Foundational rock n roll. Wonder what he could have attained if he hasn't died so young.
Worth it just for The Killing Moon alone
So many classics! Great album.
Classic alternative. A treasure.
Good, but it's hard not to compare it to superior output from their Native Tongues compatriots.
Well produced synth pop
Some real bangers although not as groundbreaking as Galang
The album that brought hip-hop out of the cities and into nationwide attention. An undeniable classic.
Fantastic live set, would've loved the chance to see Muddy play in-person.
Solid, no skips
Classic punk, essential listening.
Runaway and Power are the high points. Hard to separate the man from the art.
Not the best effort from Sly but still good.
Indie with good pop sensibilities. Well crafted lyrics.
Sympathy for the Devil and Street Fighting Man are the standouts on a solid release.
The best band of the disco era hands down.
Wonderful songwriting, I'm just not huge on Joni's voice
Fantastic singer, music exactly what you'd expect for 1964
Unremarkable white boy blues
