Track 1.) Decent album opener. Nice chilled rock vibe about it, should have listened to The Stone Roses much before now Track 2.) Definitely a overhyped song. Strays away a little bit from the rest of the album but an album has good and bad songs. Track 3.) Some would say Waterfall is kinda the same feel as She Bangs the Drum but there’s something about the guitar in this song that makes me like it compared to the one before. It might be that guitar riff where it tops She Bangs the Drum Track 4.) I can gather that they’re going for the rockstar approach on this track but it just doesn’t hit the mark with me. Track 5.) Completely different song. Nice acoustic feel to it probs one of my favourites of the album. Track 6.) Even more different, 50 seconds of fingerpicking guitar and a poem of lyrics to marry the two. Track 7.) Much better song compared to the first half of the album. More of an alternative tone to it. Really like this one. Track 8.) Again more alternative tone much better than first half of album. Ian Brown just knows what to write when it comes to writing lyrics. Nice little guitar solo aswell. Much better tone. Track 9.) I feel they take a lot of inspiration from 50s and 60s bands with this song and some parts it works and other not. But again nice guitar tone. Track 10.) This is the One starts all big to guitar and bass. Big kick drum and lyrics. Then into what I think the Stone Roses should be big drums and bass with the guitar just heard but rememberable creating a more rockstar feel about the song. Track 11.) Very 60’s, but brought into the 80’s and 90’s. Some of the songs work and some don’t. The instrument at the end brings it back and changes the whole aspect of the song for the better. Track 12.) Fools Gold. Classic I can perfectly see why so many people love this album and the success it had on release with Madchester I can’t fault it. But it’s just not my thing but am not against listening to The Stone Roses again and adding them to the playlist.
I could write this review the same as album one. But Meatloaf is a love child of Rock and Opera. Bat Out of Hell a all time classic but the rest of the album is a exact representation of the 70’s, a mix match of strong guitar and finger bashing piano. A mix match that would works in the musical theatre so maybe I’ve just created an idea or said something that already exists but either way. It’s a 70’s album not my favourite but at least I can say I’ve listened to it.
First time I’ve heard of Judas Priest so definitely a new experience listening to this album. The first half/ first 5 songs I just didn’t like it, as a metal band it didn’t really excite but after You Don’t Have to Be Old to Be Wise the album is mental, and makes you want to listen to the album again and again and that’s exactly what music should do. So this is a very solid album and introduced to metal music maybe they’ll be a bit more metal and Judas Priest in my playlist.
This music belongs on the Gran Turismo franchise it’s got that chill vibe about it, with Sax and other instruments added throughout. I can just imagine finishing a race on GT4 and hearing one of these tracks as I return to the Main Menu. Would maybe listen to Highschool Lover, but that’s probs about it.
Seeing other people reviews of this was all over the place some liked it others hated it but the first songs is so chilled and simple it just works, it does go on a bit to long but it just a chill album.
Being a big Fleetwood Mac fan this is kinda giving me the same feel especially Son of a Gun it carries a simplicity and just works. I’ve said that a few times but that’s the thing with music sometimes keeping it simple works. And not really knowing any of The La’s music it’s a pleasant surprise listening to their music for the first time. Little disappointed by the second half of the album definitely let’s it done but does obtain a difference from other albums.
Just gonna keep it short and simple. Yes Frank Sinatra is a legend in music. Not my thing but can understand why people like him so much. Every song sounds like a Christmas song, just not for me.
28 minutes and 12 songs, how is this gonna work. Very Very solid album. Feels brand new but also like I’ve heard it before. I feel lots of other artists have taken inspiration from these guys and I can clearly see why. Just shows that rock is never dead.
I mean it’s Bob Dylan you can’t really go wrong with it can you?. Such a skilled guitarist and lyrics are just poetry. Just shows again that if you want to create good music just keep it simple.
Bit of weird guy. But he can play a piano kinda like it.
I think the best way you can describe this album is ‘guilty pleasure’ one of those people forget but love it as they listen to it. I think it’s a weird album musically, very good lyrically and was a change to some of the other music on the list.
Well that’s was weird
Very fun blues 12 bar/ jazz album. Kinda really enjoyed Four Women, lyrically amazing and works so well. Rest of the album didn’t enjoy as much. Still alright though.
Obviously I’ve heard a few REM songs before this but I’m definitely going to have to listen through the rest of there music after this. They have a very distinct sound and it’s just great. It’s the End of the World As we Know it, is just a classic. Not big fan of Fireplace but rest of the album is very good.
First time listening to Radiohead, pleasantly surprised. Bodysnatchers absolutely bangs, straight onto my playlist. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, is weird but cool at the same time. Again very solid album.
