I don’t love this genre of music, I am simply trying to listen to things I haven’t heard before. I can appreciate the quality of the production and lyricism but personally I wouldn’t listen again. Phenomenal samples, “Can I kick it?” is a great song.
Awesome album, would highly recommend.
Easy to see why he’s so revered, his crowd work was phenomenal and the tone of his voice comes across crystal-clear despite it being a live album.
Great musicianship, I didn’t connect with the narrative of the album. This is a great record to listen to in the background.
Really didn’t like the singers’ voice and the album was a bit overstuffed. The guitar-playing is captivating.
I did not vibe with this album at all, couldn’t understand the singer and a few of the songs really sounded similar. I am not generally a fan of rock from this era and this album really was grating to me.
Try listening to this album as two albums, one with all the even-numbered tracks and one with all the odd-numbered tracks. Honestly, this may be one of the more overlooked albums for an artist that had a prior number one album. It’s not Rumours and that’s okay. Tusk is one of the best “weird” songs, shout-out to the USC marching band.
Rap is my least favorite genre of music, I don’t have any critical comments to make but I did not enjoy listening to this.
Super unique voice, this would be a perfect record to put on when it’s a rainy evening. I wish more contemporary artists made albums like this.
I’m kicking myself for not listening to this sooner!
What a fun eclectic mixture of tunes, did not know that he popularized the “lime in the coconut” song.
One is a phenomenal track, as they noted later in their career they were pretty coked out during the recording process and it shows in spots. The bass is turned wayyyyy down in the mix. Not my favorite of their albums but better than most.
The singer has a bit of a reedy voice but otherwise I really enjoyed this album.
Musicians? Great! Rod Stewarts’ voice? Dylan-esque.
I liked the album but the constant distortion effect present on most tracks gave me a headache.
Really didn’t enjoy “You can’t fade me”, but liked this album more than most rap I’ve listened to.
Very very very mellow album, I’d recommend for background listening or something to put in while you read. Not my cup of tea but pretty solid overall.
Great prog-rock, I miss this genre a lot
Wow, I was blown away by her voice! I can’t believe I’ve never heard of Miriam Makeba before. Really emotes in her singing.
I really don’t get the hype with Clapton outside of his stuff with Cream.
Blown away by this, really incredible.
This album is a classic, wide variety in the types of songs, witty lyrics and the best non-disco DISCO track of all-time in “Heart of Glass”. This album is in my top-10 all-time.
This was one of the least memorable albums I’ve ever heard
A little too mellow for me
2nd sonic youth album, also not my cup of tea. Too much ambient nothingness for me
I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone unless they are determined to listen to as many works by Janis Joplin as possible.
Don’t get why you would close your album with a 16 minute ambient nothing track but otherwise a pleasant surprise. Love the long track run times.
