Like a poppier, bouncier X?
"Not Fade Away" is the standout track
Not at all what I was expecting. Kind of a weird album, really. Strangely catchy. That voice!
Not even my 2nd favorite Clash album...
Much dirtier than I remembered. Too many "interludes". Wasn't my thing as a kid, and still isn't I guess...
I like it! Now I'm wishing I would have been a raver in the mid 90s...
Maybe I've just heard some of these songs too many times to care anymore?
Good recording quality, at least? Not sure I'd ever listen to this again.
A couple-few interesting tracks (Bussing and They're Hanging Me Tonight) but not sure I'd make an effort to re-visit the full album again.
Interesting to listen to this right after Radiohead. Definitely a through-line between them. This isn't my favorite Kraftwerk album though...
Meh, probably not coming back to this one ever again... Parts of it come off as a parody album somehow. I'm very confused.
Some really nice tracks, but a bit meandering at times.
Right up my alley. I feel like I probably should have heard "Shot By Both Sides" before, but I don't recognize it.
Wanted Dead or Live is pretty good
It's got it all
I don't even know anymore. I still listen to their earlier stuff all the time. But black album and later.... I just can't. Does that make me a hipster?
Great album, fun songs, just always found the production a bit thin :/
meh. I like Iggy and all, but this is more just a bad Bowie album.
I wanted to be more interested...
My least favorite S&G...
Still raw and impactful after 40 years.
I listened to the whole damn thing.
Interesting to put Come on Eileen in context. It fits right in with the album, though.
well constructed, but not really my thing
Weird. It sounds good, and maybe I'd want to listen to individual songs on occasion, but I can't really imagine wanting to come back to this album. A bit too "all over the place".
"It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)" might have converted me to a Dylan fan
I feel like the 2nd half drags a bit. First track is awesome!
love how much the lyrical imagery seems to clash with the style. how is this from 1968?
I'm a fan!
I'm sure there's something here, but can't really get past the cheese factor.
I've enjoyed other albums of his more... A double album is a lot to ask.
Meh. Feel like I didn't *have* to hear this one before I die.
I really liked the sound, but it stayed a little too "low key" to engage.
I appreciate it, but I don't enjoy it.
Listening through this whole thing was a slog... I used to love Dire Straits.
This was actually pretty decent
Hard to argue with, I guess. Well put together, lots of hits. But I'd rather listen to Tom Petty...
I'm sure my devotion to Minutemen is biasing my rating a bit, but this is a pretty fun listen.
I obsessed over this album back when, eventually wearing out the cassette tape. But it's been a while since I listened to it through. Still a collection of well-crafted, poppy punk songs. It is what it is.
Pretty rockin' stuff. This one's hard to rate after just one listen, but my gut says 3. It could very well deserve a 4.
Man, I just can't with early Beatles stuff. It's just a bad Motown impression.
Andy Warhol and Queen Bitch are my favorites
I actually enjoyed this a bit. Had never heard of The Waterboys. A bit uneven, but I liked the longer, more driving tracks the most.
I'm not familiar with this group. Not my favorite industrial-ish album, but there are some parts that I enjoyed. No plans to revisit this one...
I have to admit the first half is pretty strong. Kinda falls off a bit though towards the end.
It's fine. Kinda blended into the background. Not bad music to work to!
Didn't think I knew the artist, but I knew a lot of these songs. Definitely quirky, but still kinda fun. Can't tell how much of this is a joke!
I guess I'll never get Genesis. It's so goofy sounding, but not in a fun way like Rush or Yes or whatever.
I guess this is my favorite Springsteen album so far. Not generally a fan, but the stripped back style sounds OK to me.
A more psychedelic Who. Kinda all over the place, which I guess was the point. But it kinda ruined the flow for me.
Once again Van Halen woos me with awesome guitar licks despite awful lyrical content.
Man, I used to love it. I guess it's aged ok...
I don't know why this annoyed me so much. It seemed pleasant enough, but then I realized the songs were just longer versions of Don Henley or Dire Straits or something.
it's pretty long. i remember enjoying it the first time i listened, but repeated listens seem to drag a bit
the title song is obviously great, but i wouldn't come back to this just because of one song
Nice! Never listened to the whole thing before. It's heavy!
Not my favorite R.E.M. album, but still solid all the way through.
I was introduced to this album a while back, and it seemed more impressive then. I get that it's "groundbreaking" or whatever, but does it sound good?
Really well recorded. Some great tracks, but it blends together a bit.
I don't know. I started out liking it, but this just isn't my thing for a whole album's worth.
Weird coincidence with the passing of Queen E?
I listened a couple times. It sounds pretty cool...
Meh, probably never coming back to this one
Whatever... it's fine.
Man, I really don't care about this at all.
This one didn't do it for me. And I liked Perfect Prescription a fair bit...
I really hoped I'd enjoy this more. I just don't think I'll ever "get" Johnny Cash the way I should.
Maybe this was original for the time? Sounds boring now.
Maybe because this style has come back a bit with other artists like Bill Calahan (who does a much more interesting version), I found this quite boring.
Maybe I'll just never get it...
My 2nd favorite from them (Sister being first)
Sure, it's groundbreaking, but none of the songs really stand out.
Never heard of 'em. It was interesting at times.
Hadn't listed to Julian Cope before. This is decent.
Hadn't listed to Julian Cope before. This is decent.
Not sure I'll ever get Tom Waits
I lost interest pretty quickly.
Cool sounding record, but docking a point because I kept thinking of other bands while listening (Cure, Smiths, Gang of Four)
Got some NIN vibes on "Thoughts of You". Wonder if Trent Reznor listened to this a bunch
Weird. I guess I could see why this would be mentioned together with the Clash or whatever, but this is way stranger. Some OK tracks, but not sure I'm coming back to listen this one again.
A lot of connective tissue here linking to 80's and 90's stuff. You have to assume Wilco was taking notes here (especially Holocaust), plus a bunch of other folks. Big Black Car is my favorite song.
Hamburger Lady is a true masterpiece. I appreciate this as an art piece, but not really a regular listening kind of thing.
I don't mind this at all.
It's good, but not as good as "If You're Feeling Sinister".
I still don't get it. Theoretically all the parts of a great album, but it just doesn't jive with me. Maybe it's too optimistic for this cynic.
Somehow I never really listened to Anthrax. The vocals are pretty off-putting to me.
