This was a 5 in 1995!
More bang than I remembered!
You put the lime in the coconut!
Modern day poetry & makes me think of my sister ❤
Enjoyed this, 1st time listening to a Stevie album, only familiar w the big hits. Loved the funk, wasn't into the jazz. I'll own it, I don't care for Contusion. Some of the slower lovey songs got a little long for me. Depressing how relevant some of these lyrics are 45 yrs later. My Highlights! Village Ghetto Land Sir Duke ☆☆☆☆☆ Pastime Paradise surprised me too folks Ordinary Pain after 2:40 The harp on If It's Magic bc fucking harp Saturn Ebony Eyes
Well Sinead O'Rebellion! Shock me shock me with that deviant behavior! Sinead does have a unique voice & I love Irish dialect. I recognize & appreciate the anguish that went into the album, it would be a good one if you ever need something to listen to during an ugly cry session. My highlights Feels So Different love love love the strings I Am Stretched On Your Grave is my fave of the album Nothing Compares is a classic of course, there's a reason that song has been so overplayed If I'm being honest a big highlight was when it was over.
Grungy & angsty, love it. Fave lyric There's a certain comfort in being confused. I revisited the book Touch Me I'm Sick while listening - Charles Peterson's photojournal of the grunge scene. Made me long for my youth and another beer! My Highlights! Generation Genocide Broken Hands esp guitar solo Move Out Shoot the Moon
I love Alice Cooper & this entire album. I would argue that Unfinished Sweet is the best dentist song of all time & they absolutely ARE aching to get me.
Like this album's big hit it was Alright! It definitely grew on me thru the day. I liked! Strange Ones Time Sofa of my Lethargy Originally would have rated a 2 but I like those 3 songs VERY MUCH. I'd like to know where all the strange ones go.
Super not into it.
I enjoyed listening to this, it was interesting. Researching the artist also led me to learn a few things about Senegal along the way. Probably won't listen to this again but enjoyed being exposed to it!
First half of the album was ok - esp Mick's Blessings & The Paris Match. Did not care for the last half!
Funky! Recognized some sounds I didn't know were borrowed from Jorge
This was all right. I was eagerly expecting a pizza delivery from a mustached delivery man that I simply don't have cash to pay for do you accept any other forms of payment? while listening to this album.
It's not as bad as you think - there are some interesting sounds layered in there. Need headphones to appreciate this one! Also, Let's hear it for the keytar!
I am not much of a jazz fan but Sarah Vaughan may convert me! I really enjoyed listening to this. Love her voice & playfulness.
I appreciate Aerosmith & it certainly seems likely my teenage parents conceived me to this album. My fave tracks here are Adam's Apple & Round & Round!
Big fan of The Doors & this album! I eat more chicken than any man ever seen!
So emotional & melancholy. I like the genre description Baroque Pop.
An all right listen, didn't overly grab me. Nocturnal Me is an unequivocal Ghost song in my head, it jarred me when it started to play! The Bunnymen get an extra star for that track.
Today I learned about Poly Styrene!
I enjoy listening to dreamy alternative songs like these on rainy days. I especially liked Earthquake!
I'm in the Mood is just amazing & love this album!
Fuck! This is amazing & I wish I'd been listening to it for the last 30 years. I'll make it up to you from here Slint, promise. Love the dissonance, the mood, the entire album.
Grew on me w additional listens!
I just can't with these jazz instrumentals. But Jimmy gets an extra star due to my affinity for the organ!
I've long loved this album! And was infatuated with the brown eyed dream boat that is Brandon Boyd for a minute! Always loved that red tattoo on his arm. Sometime near this album's release I won Incubus concert tickets from the radio. A friend & I drove a couple hrs to the show in my dad's hooptie grand marquis getting high af. They were nose bleed seats but it was fucking awesome. A MAJOR AWARD after all. GOOD TIMES INCUBUS!
Didnt know what to expect when this came up but I was excited to see Atticus Ross as a contributor! Upon playing I realized I was familiar w some of Barry's work from the Lost Highway soundtrack. Had a good time listening to this - will revisit!
Found this slow & relatively uninteresting.
I enjoy weird synthy shit! The Eurythmics make me think of Friday Night Videos when I was a little kid - Annie seemed so exotic to me!
Not really my cup of tea but an interesting listen. Certainly a masterpiece of a concept album, I feel like I watched a movie about Illinois. John Wayne Gacy made me pause both times I played it thru. Loved the orchestral sounds & esp the trumpet on this album!
Not my fave Tupac album but it's all right!
Even more mehhh than the last Smiths album.
I really enjoyed this & will be spending more time with it! There is some very beautiful music in here- especially liked Tonite it Shows, the poetry that is the lyrics of Opus 40 & highlight for me is Endlessly. So melodic, it's the sound birds make when twirling around Cinderella or Snow White's beautiful kind head. And I've spent so many hours playing the eerie melody that is Silent Night just so lovely.
I know this is overplayed but shit it's a good album & I love it!
I've loved this album for 20 years - it still rocks! Part of the permanent soundtrack of my life.
Ok background music, did not overly grab me. Honestly there are times I found her voice lovely & times it made me want to bang my head against a wall bc its so sickenly sweet. Overall ok tho & Heartbreaker was the standout to me!
Band on the Run is a masterpiece of a song in my opinion, just so good!
Not the biggest Stones fan. I get it, I just don't get it the way the real fans do. That said, I don't mind this album. Favorite track I Got the Blues!
I'm down w/ Tom Waits, a fan actually, however this album just isn't really my thing. There's some humorous shit up in here but overall I simply prefer a little more music a little less chit chat ya know?
Perfect album for a Saturday morning putzing around the kitchen. The whole album is kind of one song, but it's a good song!
This album makes me wish I could move my hips & salsa dance! (I absolitelu cannot) Fun listen!
Not a big fan of this-too marching band! Kept making me think of that dumb ass Gwen Stefani song w/ b a n a n a s in her dumb ass baby voice. Last 1/2 of the album was more bearable. I actually liked Mango Pickle Down River, Paper Planes makes me think fondly of Pineapple Express & Come Around w/ Timbaland was all right too.
Wasn't familiar-now I am! Listened to Gang Starr all day. Who's Gonna Take the Weight was my fave song, but no bad ones here imo!
Poweful album! Love the funk & fucking love King Kunta! If you can listen to that song w/o moving your body we can't be friends.
Appreciate & respect the project, just not songs I'd seek out for three full hours. I listened to it all but it became background music... I know there were songs sprinkled in that almost caught my ear but not enough for me to stop what I was doing to see which ones. Maybe will try again sometime.
All I can hear is Pixar Toy Story music or that Family Guy episode when listening to ole Randy. Mr President is an apt present day theme song. Guilty is an awesome song (especially when Bonnie sings it).
I've always felt Bob Dylan is best as a poet, sometimes his voice just grates on my nerves. But I have respect & there are some fine tunes on here, & enjoy the harmonica. Sidenote we got this album on the day it was announced Bob sold master rights to his recorded catalog to Sony. It's a Bob Dylan kind of day.
Sounds like Tim likes to do it all with his big ole mamas! And everyone else! I especially enjoyed Hong Kong bar.
Ehhh I was not feeling this today....
Good album. I have some emotional memories mixed up in a couple of these songs.
Actually enjoyed this very much!
Carol King is pretty fucking special.
Love that crazy motherfucker named Ice Cube! Great album!
I'm into Leonard Cohen, this album got the 80s going on. I personally, especially want to take Berlin! Everybody Knows is classic! I hate you Jazz Police.
I was pretty excited to get this album as I've been meaning to check out Sleater-Kinney....but I hated it haha
I love this album. So many good songs & sounds. Smashing Pumpkins sound like no one else. Rocket has always been my favorite pumpkins song, beginning of Hummer is amazing.
Listened to this twice while working & thought it was fine, pleasing melodies. Then I listened again w/ the lyrics & fell in love. I like John's style & will check out more of his work! My highlights! Marz Where Dreams go to Die - I regret the day your lovely carcass caught my eye! Queen of Denmark And of course some days it's just Chicken Bones! You'd better fuck off now!
I live this album. Such good memories on so many fronts.
My favorite songs from the album are the James Brown covers!
Gawt dammit I actually really love this album.
Oh I forgot about Elastica! I had this album! Car song still my fave ;)
Nice for a snowy morning!
-I had a rough night & I hate the fucking Eagles man- Not really but I do always think of that line from the dude. The Eagles are fine, influential & all that.
Short sweet & classic. Good album, RIP Tom Petty!
I had this album & saw this tour & rocked the Zero shirt for several years!
Still salty over the last Van Morrison album I hated so much. This one was better...but still hippy drivel.
I am in a bad anxiety filled mood today & while this is soothing so should have helped it had the opposite effect. It really just pissed me off how it sounds like every other gd band. Maybe will try again someday in a better more objective mood (or not).
I actually didn't mind this. I liked 1st half ambient better than 2nd half!
Norway blew my mind...you hear it too right? (⊙﹏⊙)
New to Pulp, cringed for a minute over nore British pop but they got me! My highlights! Pencil Skirt & F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E.
Infinite stars! One of the best albums of all time (to me)
I was in the right mood & hated this less than other Radiohead albums!
I do imagine this is exactly what Sao Paulo feels like. LOVE Pecados da Madrugada!
IT'S VERY NOISY ISN'T IT?! I DID need to hear this before I died. Not sure if a quiet Sunday morning outside was the right time, but I hear you Lightening Bolt.
If you were my dog, I'd feed you scraps from off the table.
It is everything, isn't it?
Devo is so weird & so punk
My first experience w/ Funkadelic was in the movie PCU, ya'll remember that one? Classic. Anyway I loved this album & Maggot Brain is an amazing song I needed in my life. Wars of Armageddon not so much
This is some weird ass shit I'm grateful to have learned about today.
I need to come back to this
Need to come back to this, [A] Touch Sensitive stood out
I love Iggy Pop. I love David Bowie. I feel like Bowie was playing it safe, testing sobriety for a min, easing into Low. Who knows wtf I'm talking about, these thoughts just appear. I'm into it but I dislike China Girl damnit (inuding subsequent versions)
One of my fave albums ever. I've always appreciated the depravity why would I stop now?
Really not into the Talking Heads. Psycho Killer saves this one from 2 stars.
