I Ain't The One has a surprising intro and sound. The rest of the album is classic. Amazing debut.
Great blues and amazing collaborations.
Interesting dive into the evolution of 70s/80s punk. A little repetitive.
Great to hear where all those songs everyone knows came from. I had no idea.
Interesting. Not my favorite genre though.
Not my style, but I can see why it was so influential.
A nice dip into nostalgia. Not his best though.
Definitely McCartney. Pretty good.
Nothing special 90's music.
Much better punk album than the clash.
Prototypical RHCP album. A few amazing classics and lots of ok filler.
WTF is Mother? Good overall.
Not bad listening in the background.
Clearly talented, but not my type of music.
Nice message, basic music.
Surprisingly good and a talented artist.
Not my cup of tea.
Classic bit of 90s.
Amazing start to finish.
Interesting, and I can see how it was seminal.
Better than expected.
Amazing. It's a shame sitar didn't catch on better, but this album shows what could have been.
New addition to my library. Somehow missed them on their original release.
Interesting listen. Not incredibly special.
Now I know who the Pet Shop Boys are.
Never knew this existed. Great music.
Starts strong, falls off toward the end.
Amazing start to finish.
Nothing special. He relies on the quality of his voice more than the quality of his lyrics and music.
Enjoyed more than I thought I would. Solid album.
Starts off ok and just goes downhill.
Simple and great.
Amazing, interesting, experimental but still enjoyable to listen to.
Nice enjoyable music.
Classic punk. Holds up well. Definitely have to be in the right mood though.
Interesting mix of sounds and styles. I feel like it needs more than a single listen to catch up with it.
I never cared for radiohead, but I have a much better appreciation now. The music really holds up. I listened to more Radiohead and Thom gets a little whiney.
Amazing songwriting, but I can't handle the voice.
Good. Still not a big Rush fan though.
Interesting and easy listen. Not mind blowing, but good.
Raw youthful punk. Doesn't really stand out though.
Fun dark alternative rock.
Nice variety of chill music.
A cultural touchstone. So many lines that stuck in the cultural zeitgeist and that are still relevant today. It is indeed on like Donkey Kong.
Classic country and a great voice.
Nothing to say that hasn't been said.
Unique amazing energy. A ton of fun and great vibes. Go read about the intro guitar solo.
Two iconic songs, the rest are good but fall off a bit.
Cool stuff, I could only imagine how mind blowing it was 50 years ago.
A little out there for my tastes but great musicianship.
Motown throwback. Some great songs.
This is the kind of music I'm doing this for. Completely unexpected and very interesting.
Very cool and ahead of it's time. Less kitschy than Gary Newman.
Experimental and a less cliche side of this time and place that isn't often heard in pop culture. Good listening.
Interesting, but not really my thing.
Good stuff. Great listening even if it isn't spectacular.
Never cared much for Bowie, but this was pretty good.
More punk. ok.
Awesome, eclectic, fun.
Very cool band. Good mix of pop and experimental.
Classic but not outstanding.
Good thing I listened to the full dynamic range version or I wouldn't have been able to understand a word he said.
Like a knock-off Nora Jones. With a crappy beat box. Very much a product of the era it was released in.
Nice background music.
Unfortunate that they are forgotten as compared to the Beatles. Great stuff.
Amazing that a single musician could make the sound of a generation.
Surprisingly enjoyable and is a much better precursor to punk than some other bands.
Amazing and timeless.
Classic timeless rock.
Amazing representation of an underrated genre.
Certainly enjoyable and iconic of the era.
Interesting and better than expected.
Unique sound. Not in love with the vocals.
Amazing sound for the time period. Can't believe I hadn't heard of them before.
Interesting, seminal country-rock. Very easy listening.
Makes me wish I understood what he was singing about, but even that isn't necessary to enjoy the funk.
Didn't love it.
Great stuff. Reminds me a bit of Frank Turner. Love the songs and messages.
Awesome stuff. Very enjoyable.
Peak of the decade, and maybe the century. Incredible music through both albums.
Surprisingly good. Highly enjoyable. He gets a little whiney sounding.
So anyway, here's Wonderwall. Not sure they were ever going to be the next Beatles, but pretty good.
I had no idea. Amazing.
I've never really enjoyed Jazz, but this kept drawing me back with interesting rhythms and sounds and phrases.
I knew the hits of course, but the rest of this album is just as if not more amazing.
The fact that this isn't their "good" stuff is amazing. Incredible sounds of course.
Good indie music. Fairly unique for a genre that can become monotonous.
Extremely good and refreshing. Interesting beats, bass lines, lyrics, rhythms.
Smooth. I appreciate the live band.
Good jams, good messages.
Interesting flow and just "normal day" subject matter. Not sure I'm a huge fan though.
I wasn't high enough for this.
Love the folksy feel and Irish sounds. Like a Bob Dylan that can sing.
Pretty good, doesn't stand out.
I had heard of them but never heard them. Cool sound, very unique. Fun listen.
I know it's not true, but she sounds like a discount Sheryl Crow. Generic.
Easy to listen to while also kind of out there. This is a good space to explore.
You can hear so many modern styles in this music it's amazing.
Janis was definitely the highlight.
Mostly blah, but a few outstanding tracks.
Ok, gets whiney.
I appreciate the punk-lightness of this. Sort of like a 70's/80's Blink 182.
Good stuff. Love the blues songs in there.
Man I wish I was their drummer.
Very good. Exceptional guitars.
Fun wide range of songs with great lyrics.
Not normally a jazz person, but I thoroughly enjoyed this. Amazingly smooth and great listening.
I expected the back half to fall off in quality due to the number of tracks, but it was solid all the way through.
Doesn't quite click with me. Has some high points, but lots of middles.
Enjoyable, but a bit generic. Not sure why it's on the list.
Exactly as advertised. Great background music.
Thought it would drag in the second half, but that's where the interesting stuff is.
Some amazing stuff and some that isn't as great, but fun all the way through.
Interesting and the name definitely fits. I can see how this is experimental and could inspire other ideas.
Interesting to see the flow from the Beatles to glam. Some good tunes but kinda wanders around.
That was an experience. All over the place lyrically and musically. Feels experimental in some spots and highly polished in others. I'd never been exposed to anything beyond his radio stuff, so this was extremely cool.
I got this right after 1999. This isn't as much fun as 1999 but there's still some amazing music in here.
Still not a huge Bowie fan. Entertaining enough.
Classic. Amazing harmonies and really fun songs.
Hurt and a few others are amazing, but in some places it just sounds like an old guy talking.
Great slice of rock. Really enjoyed it.
Good classic rock
Much better than the other Common album that was on here. The Corner is amazing.
Some great songs, too much sampling.
Cool, but not standout.
A cool slice of grunge that I missed the first time around. Great vocals and guitars.
Great tunes and guitars.
My favorite electronic music so far.
Not my favorite U2, but obviously has some great songs.
Definitely pure punk and good listening at that.
Never heard of this at all, but it's good.
I wish country had gone more this direction. Pretty good, drags a little at the end.
Nice. Another artist I'd only heard of, but really dig his music.
Very good. Jazz like in some sections, experimental in others. Fun listen.
Smooth, good listening. Feels futuristic for the 50's.
Good, but not stand out.
Cool to hear something I had no idea existed. There's also no way the movie wasn't inspired by his pseudonym on this album.
Quality music. New sound I hadn't heard.
Interesting, and I'd never listened to The Cure beyond the radio, but not. something I'll listen to every day.
Gets kinda noisy in the middle.
Paint it Black is one of the best ever. The rest is a good blend of styles and songs. I'm more of a stones fan now.
I can see why he is so influential. As an album not sure I like having the songs repeated a few times, but they are all different.
Classic, but a little dated and repetitive. Amazing harmonies of course.
The best I've heard from her. Her voice still grates after a while, but some great songs.
Entertaining and smooth. I'll try out more of their stuff.
Great sound, and great non-violent message. Excellent features.
Not sure how Ozzy became the most famous one from the band, but the guitar is killer on this.
Some really cool sounds in here. I can tell why it's so influential.
Definitely early punk rock. Super cool slice of history.
Not a huge fan, but distinct sound.
Interesting, but I think their other work is better. Great to hear where the later sounds started.
It's legendary for a reason.
Made me realize that Radiohead is the modern Pink Floyd. Really accessible experimental music.
Interesting, and I had never heard of them. Some cool ideas in here.
This is how legends are made. Not a Nirvana fan, but this concert is amazing.
So many hits and great rhythms.
Sounds like a bizarro world Bowie, but I can hear how this has influenced a bunch of artists that followed.
Album is pretty good, but it was good to learn about LL Cool J's early career.
Not my favorite, and I think it shows the tendency of this list to focus on the UK too much.
Great voice, but this album doesn't even seem to be her best. It gets a little repetitive after a while too.
Good all around rock.
Very interesting fusion on some of the songs, and some just generally fun ones.
Better than expected and a coincidence that it came up right after we finished Stranger Things.
Like most things to do with Oasis, this is over rated. I can see why it stood out in the early 90's though.
Perfect encapsulation of what it advertises to be with no apologies, and some great songs to go with it.
Not sure it's important from a music point of view, but it's interesting experimental music.
I'm becoming a fan of more 80's music, but this is the crappy side.
Still not a Bowie music fan, but this is my favorite so far.
Fun music, very different. Not sure if it's an every day listen, but enjoyable.
Reflective of this list's bias toward Britain, but this is actually a very good album.
May be my favorite Queen album. Brighton Rock is amazing. Killer Queen too of course. Great and widely varied tunes all the way through.
Can definitely hear the roots of the early Beatles and many other groups in this. Great listening too.
Not sure about best rock debut ever, but pretty rockin' stuff.
Interesting, but not stand out.
I like it.
Great classic rock and tons of energy.
Enjoyable and surprisingly close to country music given it's origin in Britain.
All I knew was brown eyed girl previously. This was a great listen.
A bit repetitive and not really my type of music, but that album cover is everything.
Unique, technically proficient, interesting message. A big surprise for me.
I didn't know the music from Nightmare before Christmas was a genre, but this is it. Very good.
Not sure how I'd classify this, but surprisingly good. Kind of like an analog EDM. ADM?
Never really knew what Steely Dan did. This is a great introduction and has some amazing songs.
Incredible rock songs mixed with some psychedelic songs and all good. The electric organ is my favorite.
Didn't realize that this is Zappa. Intricate and widely varied.
Amazing as expected. Very approachable hard rock. Great message. Interesting music.
Like a proto nine inch nails mixed with 80s punk sensibilities. So much energy and angst, but still listenable.
A little whiney, but some of the songs were better than I thought they would be, and the queen is indeed dead.
Good, but nothing really stands out.
I only disdained Nirvana from the radio play and the fans. I had never heard the harder songs, and the entire album is great unfortunately. Ugh.
Good, but not outstanding.
Finnish glam rock, and it was actually decent. Will wonders never cease?
Very good. Love the driving rhythms. Will be listening to more of Talking Heads.
One of the best ever. Amazing album all the way through. Mookie Blaylock though?
Ok, I like the touches on folk stuff.
Good, some stand out tracks.
Excellent and a breath of fresh air compared to standard rock from then or now.
