Rhythms were good. Vocals were haunting. Lyrics were dark. It's not my usual taste, but I enjoyed hearing it.
Very interesting to hear from a historical perspective, considering his contributions to Pink Floyd. Knowing the history, however, I couldn't help feeling a bit sorry for Syd Barrett.
Liked "Overground", builds nicely and a little more melodic. Most lyrics are very dark, but seem to be congruent with the pulsing beats and thrashing guitars. Interesting to finally see them in the video for the last song.
When it comes to reggae, you can't be Bob Marley. Right from the first notes to the end of the album this record rocks. The bass lines and rhythms are infectious and the guitar solos have real feeling, as does the singing. This album also has Peter Tosh, another great talent who died too young.
Not my cup of tea. Very abrasive.
very listenable pop music
Not my thing. More melodic than I thought, but I can't appreciate the lyrics.
Interesting rhythms. Kinda jazzy, avant guard. Very catchy tunes. Lyrics are quite poetic. Nice album. Great use of repetition.
Just not into it.
The Drugs Don't Work is a standout, but all sounds good.
Very listenable pop music.
Nice and smooth. Great album!
Very listenable pop music. Sometime the lyrics seem a little simple and sometimes derivative.
More listenable pop music. A little repetitive for my taste.
Rap is not usually my thing, but this is very creative stuff. I love the samples and melodies.
This album is an old friend. Cream was a 60s super group that produced some great music. Strange Brew, Tales of Brave Ulysses, and Sunshine of Your Love were big hits and are standouts on the album. There's a lot of good music here,
Very listenable. Nice use of electronics.
Very listenable electronic music from some early German innovators.
Likeable pop. Powerful voice. Hard to criticize Adele, but I'm not a big fan of this. Could be my age, but it sounds way overproduced and overly dramatic.
For my mind, this is the best of Beatles, especially side two. I could do without Octopus' Garden and Maxwell's Silver Hammer, but the rest of the album is solid. The guitar work on "I Want You" is fascinating. On a side note, this YouTube version is a little frustrating because there is silence between all the tracks on side two. They should be connected together.
Sorry, not a fan of so much n word.
Sorry, too abrasive for my ears.
This link takes you to a cover band. That's not Jimi. That said, Electric Ladyland is a classic and shows the creativity of Hendrix. Great album!
Nice and tight. Very listenable pop music with a little grunge feel.
An undisputed classic. Nostalgia for me, but it still holds up after all these years.
Simon's first without Garfunkel. Another classic. It has some standout tracks, but everything fit together nicely.
Kinda fun! It includes El Paso, Marty's biggest hit.
I wasn't impressed with the first song, but as I kept listening the album really grew on me. It's very tight and the lyrics are poetic. The performance is dramatic and very enjoyable. By the end of the album, I loved it.
It's hard to review a classic. This album is filled with hits that reflect that unique Creedence sound. CCR was both prolific and original. The music holds up very well after 50 some odd years.
Interesting. Background music that draws you in. Turns out it's very likeable.
This is one of my favorite albums of all time. It's a solid Eno album from start to finish with lots of guest stars like Robert Fripp, John Cale, Phil Collins, Percy Jones, et al. Simple rhythms and rhymes set to infectious instrumentals.
Nice tight pop music.
Another classic! This is an excellent intro to the kinks for those who only remember "You Really Got Me."
Nice easy melodies. Interesting lyrics.
Immediately infectious! I can't believe I never heard of them. Loved it!
Another classic. American Pie and Vincent are standout hits.
More pop than punk or new wave.
This is my personal favorite Genesis album. The whole first side is spectacular, especially Firth of Fifth. The second side is mostly story songs that are intricate in their execution and interesting in their story lines.
It's been a long time since I listened to this album. It's very enjoyable and holds up well after all this time. I completely forgot about "We'll Meet Again." It's a great cover of a song I always liked.
