Solid R&B, lots of toe tapping tunes. Seems extremely well produced overall. Listened on youtube music at work. Got me moving on every track. At the start of this, I wasn't enamored, but man, this is SOLID. 4.5/5.
Solid production, sounds great. Not a huge fan. Riders on the Storm is a solid classic. 1st half of the record is better than the last half IMO. Good blues rock but a bit too much psychedelic influence? IDK. Not my cup of tea.
So, I know Hendrix is amazing and influential, etc. But this music doesn't do much for me most of the time. IDK why....
Well, Song 2 I've heard before. I would have guessed this was Weezer maybe based on that song alone. This feels like the 90s. The album as a whole has some bad songs on it but I clearly am not the target demo for this. As of this album, I'm instituting my rating system as follows: 1*: terrible, no redeeming value that I could find, or just not my thing at all. 2*: I can see the reason this is on the list, it's well produced or influential or whatever, but I can't imagine listening again. 3*: this is OK. I might listen again if it came up in a random playlist. Or, I don't like it but it has extremely good productions or is hugely influential or something. 4*: I like this. I would listen again. Good music. 5*: This is amazing and is now in semi-regular rotation. Changed the way I listen/taught me something/cured major disease.
After the first two tracks, I'm amused and enjoying this. Funny, musically interesting (if not super original), and quite enjoyable so far. Got some laughs and got my feet moving at the office. A few more tracks in and really enjoying this. Some inventive stuff here, vocals and instruments and styles. Humor and seriousness but in a light vein. Read some of the history of the band, I get where some of this stuff came from. It's great. Clockwork Creep is hilarious and dark. I really enjoyed this album, every tune.
Eh. It's Bowie. It's good, occasionally great, but always Bowie. Sometimes I like a bit of Bowie. I rarely want an entire LP of Bowie. Changes is a great track, so is Life on Mars?, Fill Your Heart, and a few others. But after 3-5 tracks, it just fades into sameness for me.
Gosh this is GOOD MUSIC. So classic, such talent in the voice, and some genre defining stuff here. Love it. 4*
The dawn of heavy metal, ozzy, and all the rest. An interesting album as you can feel the blues and jazz elements, and they are starting to transition into something HEAVIER. Awesome piece of musical history.
eh, other the the iconic (if cheesey now) Pour Some Sugar On Me; this didn't do much for me. Rocket is a neat song. Well produced. Probably wouldn't any of these songs off. 3*.
Didn't age as well as I thought it would have. Other than the song I remembered (Vampire), none of the others were familiar to me. Sounded...bad...on the car stereo. Maybe a listen in a better environment would be different; but the 90s quality stereo in the Rav4 should be just right for this given the era....
This album was Superunknown to me. It should remain so. Well produced, but super generic. Again, listened in the car. I don't think I finished the album, so may revisit in the future with a better listening environment, but didn't stir any emotions.
I don't know much 'modern' reggae and don't often listen to it, but this is good stuff. I can see myself listening again in the right mood.
Not generally what I'd listen to but undeniably brilliant.
Before I listened to this album, the number of concept/story albums in the rock world that I liked and would listen to again was very small (Alan Parsons Project, some other prog metal, etc.). The number didn't go up after this. Forgettable, story was...eh...and music...well....no thanks.
Ms. Parton is a legend. 'nuf said.
I love Willy, but I like his outlaw country much better than his covers. Still a good album.
This was pretty good and enjoyable, if a bit repetitive. Really more of a 3.5. Will check some of this group's other works for sure.
Was unfamiliar, but this is good stuff. Kind of 'clean' punk? Anyway, I enjoyed it. 3.5ish.
Not bad, but forgettable. Did nothing for me.
Great stuff. Such a unique sound and so peaceful and stirring at the same time.
Good, I don't perhaps have the historical context to really enjoy this to the fullest, but I never wanted to turn it off. Enjoyable listen.
Good! 3.5 stars. Very enjoyable, didn't hit me too hard but I did like it quite a bit.
This was OK for punk; but really not my style.
I guess I can see why this was popular in the timeframe it was released. I find it unremarkable though.
This reminds me of some of the stuff grandpa Kenny used to sing/strum, but his voice was WAY better. For me, this has only historical value.
