Solid album. Fully appreciated the Michael Jackson sample on It Ain't Hard to Tell when listening through.
Energetic. Had never heard any of the songs but the hits that you normally hear on the radio.
"I got a backyard with nothing in it Except a stick, a dog, and a box with something in it" My car has had something in it since 2015 and it is this CD in it's CD player. This is mostly because I no longer posses many CDs. But it is an awesome album that I will listen through while driving every so often. There's No Home For You Here and The Air Near My Fingers have always been favorites of mine.
I appreciate the influence this had on the next generation of rock and roll musicians. I can only listen to the cheese that is the C>Am>F>G progression for a song or two though.
I had never heard of Jeff Buckley or this album and it was a good listen. Will definitely go back to this. Sad that he died young.
Not really my vibe.
I samba and bossa nova alot - this was nice. I wasn't as into it as some of my other Brazilian favorites though - Elis Regina, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Jorge Ben Jor.
Listening this album makes me feel 15 again, but only in the good ways.
Lots of classics on this album. I used to love this album. My appreciation has waned some as I learned more about Eric Clapton stealing George Harrison's wife - not cool. Still, Layla is a wonderful song. But Eric Clapton just kind of sucks as a person.
Can only think of Guitar Hero for ps2 when I hear this band.
I liked this more than I expected. It was cool that it was instructional and intended as an intro to this genre of world music.
Never heard of this band or album but enjoyed listening to it in the background while I worked.
This was fine. I can get into his earlier stuff more though. Saw Dylan live twice, and they are both on the short list of worst performances I've ever witnessed. But I guess that is what you get when you see someone 50 out of their prime.
I just like their other albums so much better
Had never heard of her and enjoyed listening through the album.
Good musicians. Good album. But as far as Supertramp albums, Breakfast in America is better IMO.
Such authentic 80's synth.
Tangled up in Blue and Simple Twist of Fate are good songs. But not my favorite Dylan album. More classic than Time Out of Mind, IMO.
I've tried. Just can't get into Joni Mitchell.
Had never heard of John Grant but glad to have discovered him. Didn't think it was groundbreaking but it was enjoyable.
Giving this a 4 even though I'm not a huge Moby fan. So many of these songs have such strong ties to the late 90's and they really brought me some nostalgia.
Never heard of these guys but really enjoyed this album.
Not a huge metal fan, but this album rocks and seems pretty important in the foundation of many metal and thrash movements.
This prompted me to listen to other Metallica albums all day yesterday
Good music to work to.
So easy to only think of Whip It when you hear Devo. Enjoyed this album and it's fast raw sound. Reminded me of early Talking Heads at some points which would have been contemporary to this album's release.
Love the simplicity of this album. As teenagers my brother and I learned nearly every single song on this album since all you needed was guitar and drums.
Side A of this album is so strong. Had never listened to it in full before. Most of the hits are front loaded with the exception of Saturday Night's Alright. The middle of the album is blah and Jamaica Jerk-Off is almost unlistenable. But giving it a 4 for how strong it starts off with those hits. And a great album cover.
This album shaped the funk genre and is the foundation for so much hip hop that would come out years later. So good.
This was different than what I thought when I saw Iggy Pop. Much less punk rock, I guess it is his early stuff. It was fine, but didn't blow me away as being extraordinary.
Couldn't get into it.
The Doors? Jim Morrison? He's a drunken buffoon posing as a poet. - Lester Bangs, Almost Famous
Ohh, this is who sings all those songs I've heard on 97.1 the Drive
Not my scene.
Didn't recognize the band name but upon hearing the first track realized they must also sing Come On Eileen. And sure enough it is on this album. Interesting sound. New wave meets Celtic folk with the horns from a ska band.
Seems like this probably influenced Bowie and Let's Dance, but just isn't as powerful and catchy.
There are some Cure songs I like, but couldn't get into this album.
Great background music to work to. Green Onions always makes me think of the Sandlot.
Every song on this album has been used in a montage in an 80's movie.
Classic 80's Rock. Not my favorite, but I respect the sound of the time.
Very happy to have discovered Gang of Four
Never listened to this one from start to finish. Forgot Stone Cold Crazy was a Queen song that Metallica then covered.
Weird album. Lots of different sounds. Glad it led a great J Dilla sample but otherwise to out there for me.
After watching the movie Love and Mercy, I have full appreciation for this album.
First listen. Super strong start and love the instrumentals, horns and sound effects. Once I realized it was Brian Eno made sense. Wish the singer's voice was stronger on some tracks.
This album starts in a hurry with Jackie. Best of Both Worlds reminded me of You Only Live Twice by Nancy Sinatra (top 5 Bond songs for sure).
Recognized their #1 Spotify song, Alright, and always thought they were a one-hit wonder. Maybe they were, but this album is pretty fun to listen to.
They are all super recognizable songs. Just not my favorite.
I love the Frank Black and the Catholics albums. This album had some fun tracks, and from what I read, looks to be the foundation for forming the Catholics and their sound. But in comparison to the later stuff, I wasn't as into this.
Never realized the The Byrds had such a country sound.
The song Go To Her is a less good version of The Zombie's She's Not There
Couldn't listen since it isn't on Spotify. Still okay rating it as a 2 though.
I'm polarized by metal, some of it I can get into, some I cannot.
In the time of
Don't love the language in Money for Nothing - made me listen to Weird Al's take Money for Nothing / Beverly Hillbillies instead. Total 80's rock sounds.
This album was great. Such tight bass and horns and mix overall.
