Not really my cup of tea. I do appreciate the creativity and the uniqueness of some sounds, but blasting the same sentence for an entire song doesn't seem right to my ears. I guess it's great for hitting the dancefloor while on acid, and still better than most of the mainstream EDM currently out there.
Easy listening and fun garage punk album of a band I'm glad to have discovered. The lyrics are quite plain and straightforward, but they are great at expressing the wishes and fears of the British youth of the time. There are some bangers, the most notable being Teenage Kicks, but I personally enjoyed a lot the keyboard version of True Confessions.
Dense lirycs and haunting vocals. A lot of religious themes, but at times it sounds more like the devil himself is being summoned. You Want It Darker and Treaty are the best tracks. I just knew the classic Cohen from 'Suzanne' and 'So Long, Marianne', I'm glad to have discovered this darker side. He was 82 at the time of recording.
Over the top and draining. Every track feels the same. They're all good musicians, but it doesn't make me feel anything else than boredom, and I find it more depressing that cheerful. Straight blues is just not my kind of thing, but I appreciate its influence (many of my favourite rock bands are deeply rooted in blues music).
I just knew Rush and Dream Theater. This wasn't an easy listening, it took me a few plays, and even though I have mixed feelings about the nonsensical lyrics, I can't get out of my head that exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed. Love the complexity, the changes in tempo, and especially the drums. I'll be checking out their other albums soon.
Feel-good punk. Catchy tunes. A bit generic at times, but overall a fun listen. The Undertones are still better though.
I guess it was influential and helped define the genre, but far from that it was a draining experience. Pretty basic and repetitive. I do like british punk, but some early bands sound exactly the same and don't pass the test of time. Everybody agrees on 'Gary Gilmore's Eyes' being the best track. Don't ask me.
Good album and fun listen from the grandfather of punk. 'The Passenger' is a classic, 'Lust For Life' is a banger and I did like 'Some Weird Sins' too. I do thing Iggy peaked with The Stooges though.
The kind of generic modern country I can't stand. Dull, depressing and repetitive. Nothing really stands out, nor the voice, and obviously nor the lirycs.
