Really beautiful, but not one I would check back on specifically.
Standouts here are: • Only the Strong Survive • I’ll Hold You In My Heart • I’m Movin’ On • True Love Travels on a Gravel Road • Suspicious Minds
Standouts here are: • Karma Police • No Surprises • The Tourist Lots of vocals that were unpleasant to listen to. If you dig it, I’m happy for you! This is decidedly *not* for me.
Wow, I thought a two-hour runtime was self-indulgent, until I discovered there’s a SIX hour edition. Girl, bye. Standouts here are: • Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (title track) • 1979 • Beautiful • Lily (My One and Only) • Farewell and Goodnight
Love THE WHO, but live albums... are not what I want to listen to. Also, this one doesn't even sound all that great!
Damn, the production's off the charts here. It's all so smoooooth. Really happy to have experienced this one, because I don’t think I would have otherwise. Standout tracks: - Be (Intro) - The Corner - It’s Your World
Another live album? 🥴 🥴 🥴 Palpable energy and soul here, but that crowd is so jarring and distracting.
Crazy to me that they only released one album. Chaotic from start to finish; no wonder it's stuck around for so long. Also, this is some really great stuff to workout to.
Classic and iconic punk rock that has the ability to transport you right back to 1970s London. Standouts here are: • Janie Jones • Remote Control • What’s My Name • Police & Thieves
Have always hated metal and the yelling with a passion… was not excited to listed to this one when it came around. Time and tastes change though, and there are so many sickening guitar licks, it’s kind of impossible not to enjoy just a little bit. 1.5hrs is quite a long album length, though!
Had never heard of this guy before. It was a nice surprise… Very dark and depressing lyrics. Loved it. … However, I did not like having to listen to this via YouTube because it is not on Spotify. The random loud-ass insurance ads between each song really sucked.
Can’t go wrong with any of this. Driving, chilling, working, eating, partying, unwinding. It’s always a good time to put on Miles.
Crazy that I had never even heard of this band before today. Super-into the classic 60s rock'n'roll vibe; miss this kind of music that just doesn't get made anymore. Maybe not a truly "5" album, but it's so refreshing to listen to.
I liked this! Less heavy metal than I expected... which was a good thing. Really appreciated the lack of extreme screaming and yelling.
Nice and the orchestral backdrop is beautiful. A little boring... and it all sounds the same. Sorry!
An absolute classic.
Hip-hop icons. Some really, really great tracks here. Glad to finally have given it a listen. It's a classic for a reason.
SO relaxing and cool. No clue what they're singing, but that's okay!
The 4 stages of my listening experience: 1. Really actively dislike this. 2. Only on the third song, and ready to be done. 3. Music shouldn't be a chore to listen to. 4. Ugh!
Absolute bangers. Not a fan of “Perfection” and “Hit and Run” but the rest are so much fun!!!
The production and samples used are off the charts. A classic for a reason.
Decent enough. I find Chris’ voice to become a bit insufferable after a while. Singles from this album are good.
Computer noises and robotic voices. Neat...
A small number of fun singles. The rest... nope.
Probably would be upped to a 5 if I had a nice glass of whiskey with me as I listened. Really great stuff.
Fun new-wave sound. Radio, Radio is great and such a good song to end on.
Found a shitty YouTube upload of the album. Cool use of the saxophone, but I’m not digging the punk sound overall.
Groovy as hell. Undeniably great.
An all-timer. No skips. Just great music start to finish.
Pretty good! A little spooky and a fun bit of energy throughout.
02/02/2022 Nice little album to kick-back and listen to on a sunny weekend.
02/03/2022 So much angst, I love it. She's a rockstar, for sure!
02/04/2022 A CLASSIC! Will never get old. Easiest 5-star yet.
02/05/2022 This one rules. No skips. Love the vibe.
A beautiful voice on a record where all the songs sound the same. Title track's still a standout after all these years, though.
02/07/2022 Lol, no. I can't stand this guy's voice and wow, harmonicas sure are annoying, too! Happy for those that like it, though.
Really fun album from start to finish. Short and sweet, too.
02/09/2022 + Classic summer rock. + Absolutely LOVE "I'm On Fire" - such a surprising song with unexpected vulnerability. + Packed with other classic singles that stand the test of time. Really, really great stuff here.
Not many stand-outs aside from "Maggie May," but still worth a listen, and was better than expected.
02/11/2022 Some very looooonnnngggggg songs, that began to feel like a chore to get through. Layla is, of course, a classic. I also really dug the opening track, too.
02/12/22 Fucking awesome. Absolute 5-stars from start to finish. Loved this album!
02/13/22 Omg what a surprise to see this pop up. Throwback to minimal “low-effort” indie pop/rock. Olds will hate it, of course, but it’s a great, dreamy album.
02/14/22 "Garden State" movie soundtrack rejects, lol. Good for a mellow, rainy day.
02/15/2022 Chill, laid back tunes. Really nice acoustic guitar and lyrics. More rainy weekend music, but there's a lot to enjoy and appreciate here.
So that’s why Disney hired him for so many of their soundtracks.
Was not expecting the voice… strange, unique, and hauntingly beautiful.
Nice, and enjoyed more than I was expecting!
Life’s a bitch, and then you die.
02/21/22 I was always under the assumption that it was grungy punk-rock, so I never gave them a shot or even an attempt at listening, despite the constant praise. Wow, how wrong I was! Heroin's a great one, but got in trouble at work for the wild guitar strings at the end, lol. :-/
02/21/2022 A couple good songs! Nothing close to an all-timer, though! Some of y'all are crazy with these 5-star ratings.
02/22/2022 Sounds old as shit and is super boring. Get outta here with this.
02/23/2022 Truly one of the worst things I've ever listened to. Both horrible and annoying from start to finish. Absolutely terrible. I'm angry!!!
02/24/2022 Charges out of the gate with "Sympathy For The Devil" but then looses steam with (still good) blues rock. Once classic song doesn't make an album a classic.
02/25/2022 He's a weirdo for sure, but how can you not love him?
02/26/2022 Fun synthpop from a band I’ve never heard of. Only half the album is available on Spotify, which was a bummer. But of those that I was able to listen to, they were tons of fun!
Janis Joplin's vocals are just insane: wild, raw and exploding with power. Don't fuck with her.
Such a good 60s pop album. Impossible not to smile while listening to This Will Be Our Year. Care of Cell 44 is a great one, and of course, the classic Time of the Season!!!
03/01/2022 No. Not at all. Absolutely not.
03/02/2022 Didn't listen. Fuck this creep.
03/03/2022 Had to track down the majority of the album on YouTube because Spotify only has 2 tracks available. WILD guitar work on this.
03/04/2022 He's an icon for a reason. A bit repetitive towards the end, but that's not a mark on his talent, just the songs in general.
03/05/2022 Had some fun with this one! Power-pop/rock with LOTS of similarities (to me, at least) to Weezer, with a bit more grunge. Glad to have found this!
Sorry, Ray. Cigar lounge realness with this one.
03/07/2022 Really enjoyed this one. 80s pop romanticism in all the best ways.
03/08/2022 Great album. So many childhood memories flashed back of driving around with my dad with the windows down and the warm summer sun. Nice to remember the good times.
03/09/2022 This man is so annoying thanks to his public persona and association with Kim. So rich and still so angry. Can't lie though... the beats and lyrics are on fire.
03/10/2022 Not at all the jazz that I expected it to be. This is so energetic and funky as hell. Really fun album!
03/11/2022 One of my favorite albums.
03/12/2022 Not for me. At all.
03/13/2022 Psychedelic rock with out-of-this-word guitar work.
03/14/2022 Maybe my expectations were too high for this. Psycho Killer is nice, tho.
03/15/2022 Okay, Dusty! Go off!!!
03/16/2022 Even my gay ass loves that cover; if only the album was even half good.
03/17/2022 Full of energy and attitude. Sounds exactly like the 2000s, when all the music nerds were on Hype Machine trying to find the next alt rock masterpiece before anyone else.
03/18/2022 I was really enjoying this! ...But then after 'Into the Mystic' finished, it all got very bland and boring?
03/19/2022 Giving this anything less than a 5 is a straight-up war crime.
03/20/2022 Weird, loud, angsty pop/punk. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would!
03/21/22 Pretty fun classic rock. I like the term some on here used - "swamp rock" lol.
03/22/2022 Such a great album. Soooo close to a 5-star rating.
03/23/2022 Not for me, but also... what the fuck? A 17-minute long track? Absolute insanity. Good for them!
03/24/2022 Absolute chaos, and not in a good way! One of the worst things I've ever listened to, lol. Super aggressive and as unpolished as possible... I hate this so much. Never again, and wish I could erase evidence that I even streamed it in the first place.
03/25/2022 Nice debut album, full of energy. Not really into punk, but there's not really a bad song on this album. Good for them and their success! lol.
03/26/2022 Another great weekend morning and evening album. No skips.
03/27/2022 Hell yeah. Gets a little spooky as the album progresses. Def puts a spell on the listener.
03/28/2022 Classic indie; with really only one great song (Two Weeks, duh). A product of its time already. The back half takes a bit of patience to get through, if only due to how strong the opening few songs are.
03/29/2022 Not a bad album, but also not very distinctive. Maybe this one just wasn’t for me.
03/30/2022 Nope. Absolutely not for me, and a struggle to even finish.
03/31/2022 Hadn't heard of this band before. Similar sound to Sting and Peter Gabriel. Really easy to listen to... I'm a fan!
04/01/2022 Meh. Not bad, but not great by any means.
02/02/2022 Sooooo good and unique. Love that I was able to experience this!
04/03/2022 Really great stuff here. Loved the 20-minute opening track; it takes you on an entire journey from start to finish. So many ways this could have been awful, and there are already multiple albums on this 1001 list that have tracks that are SO much longer than is really necessary, but this one hit just right. Such a great listen.
04/04/2022 Great voice! Better than "A Girl Called Dusty" and full of power!
04/05/2022 I've kind of avoided Elliott Smith for a while just for how many internet opinons there are on his life, music, and passing. Glad I finally did take the time to listen - it's clearly very sad, but there's an overwhelming beauty to the lyrics and Smith's voice. I also appreciate that this isn't an album that was made for exclusively gloomy days.
04/06/2022 I gave it a shot, but I still don't get the acclaim. He sounds... bad.
04/07/2022 More angry punk/rock. Difficult to complete the full listen.
04/08/2022 Bops on bops on bops! The girls just wont quit! Listened on Spotify, and the final 3 tracks are 24 mins of extended disco remixes, and I honestly unlocked a new level of homosexual after listening.
04/10/2022 Kinda annoying after a while... welp.
04/11/2022 It all sounds the same. Can't hear anything special that would lead me to coming close to classifying this as an all-timer album.
04/13/2022 Fun, early 90s pop. Bubbly, feel-good tracks.
04/14/2022 Super fun 70s pop! Mr. Blue Sky is a classic! Some other really good tracks fill the album. Not quite an all-timer, though. Had this on vinyl when I was little, and loved the album art - really influenced my music taste/appreciation at a young age.
04/15/2022 The song Street Life goes on for days and days. Jesus Christ, please, never again. Jazz morphs into elevator music by the end. Not for me.
04/16/2022 Really bad, loud noise. Filled with random electronic sounds and brash clanging. Didn't bother exploring pas track 4... it's nonsense.
04/17/2022 Cute, country-pop. Surprised that I dug it as much as I did. Her voice gets a little irritating after a while. Good production value keeps things right on track.
04/18/22 It all sounds the same.
04/19/2022 Wild opener; thought my headphones were fucked, lol. Was really digging this until the bizarre narration begins. Wish I could have listened without all that!
04/20/2022 This begins with a 21-minute long track. Really tells you a lot about what you're getting into. Had some nice things to say! Then it kept going. And going... And going. Lots of noise.
04/21/2022 Fuck Joe Rogan. Listened on YouTube, due to the Spotify debacle.
04/22/2022 Filled with great songs. An absolute classic.
04/23/2022 Alt-blues country... Not really my thing.
04/24/2022 Bizarre. Something I'd never listen to. 1000% need to be on drugs to enjoy this album. Manson family realness.
04/25/2022 Darker ≠ Better
04/26/2022 Music my dad would def jam to. Very easy to listen to from start to finish. It's a great one to put on while doing work, too.
04/27/2022 Groovy opening tracks with impressive guitar work, but by track 5 it becomes a little too repetitive and predictable. Decent enough, though.
04/28/2022 Never heard of this dude until today. Pretty standard alt-rock. Nothing amazing and nothing horrible. Glad this was suggested, and that I know about it now.
04/29/2022 Impossible to not appreciate how big of an impression this album has had in so many artists and entire generations.
04/30/2022 Not for me.
05/01/2022 Pretty decent; ultimately, another one that's just not for me.
05/02/2022 She's one of the greats. Sweeping vocals and instrumentals; with top-tier production value to die for. Absolute fire from start to finish.
05/03/2022 Hadn't heard of Little Simz before this, but wow, she kills it. Mega talent.
05/04/2022 An early hybrid of rock, pop and punk from 1965. The garage sound quality make the whole think sound... bad. Lots of attitude in the lyrics and vocals!
05/05/2022 lmao, what? Over 2 hours of repetitive noise. Absolutely not for me.
05/06/2022 This was a nice one to get on a Friday. A week full of bullshit ending with a smooth funky album like this was nice to go out on.
05/07/2022 Really great stuff here! Great voice; could listen to this all day.
05/08/2022 Nope. Overlong and way too repetitive for anything to become worthwhile.
05/09/2022 It's nice, but I've never understood the hype and raves.
05/10/2022 Another one that's just not for me. This project is really ruining my Spotify recommendations, lol.
05/11/2022 He's known as The King for good reason.
05/12/2022 Pretty average 80's lite-rock. Album length is crazy.
05/13/2022 Hate the voice, lol. Not at all what I want to listen to.
05/14/2022 More Newman? Ok, then...
05/15/2022 Very unexpected, in the best way.
05/16/2022 OMG, these guys again? What the fuck.
05/17/2022 Decent, and very of its time. Full-on 90s in every way. Opening track is a bop, and the rest are pretty fun in a corny, dated way, lol.
05/18/2022 Fun & funky blues. Not bad.
05/19/2022 Actually pretty killer. Lots of it sounds like a 70's action soundtrack.
05/20/2022 Pretty dull and unmemorable. Same vibes as Coldplay, etc.
05/21/2022 Another one that's just not for me.
05/22/2022 Some good stuff here; not a fan of the lead's voice. Insane to be over 90mins long... who has the time?????
05/23/2022 Kinda fun but also kinda boring and a little too weird.
05/23/2022 High school fave
05/25/2022 Super fun from start-to-finish. An absolute blast to listen to!
05/26/2022 The greatest. Truly special and unique in every way. An absolute all-timer.
05/27/22 He's an icon for a reason.
05/28/2022 Punk rock... is not for me. YELLING!
05/29/22 Dope as fuck.
05/30/2022 An undeniable classic. There's a modern polish to the sound which keeps it fresh and of its time. Lots of good track on this one.
05/31/2022 Pretty tame 60's pop. These a relaxed vibe to it, but it comes off a bit dull and unmemorable in the end.
06/01/2022 Really love the out-there aura around her, but the tunes are a bit TOO strange for me to enjoy.
06/02/2022 PLEASE make it stop.
06/03/2022 Outside of the single, there's not much here that's happening or really standing-out as an "all timer."
06/04/2022 What can be said that hasn't already? Beautiful voice, aching passion, etc. You feel the heartbreak and hurt as if it was your own.
