Really fun and easy listening. Great stories and messages too.
Fun songs and cult classics, but not a fan of the singing. Grates on me after a minute and I don't find it very musically interesting.
Alright, a few classics. You can hear that they were in the process of transforming the genre, but still a bit cheesy to my modern ears. Highway Star is decent, Smoke on the Water gets a lot of hype but in my opinion both of these pale in comparison to the slow blues close of the album 'When a Blind Man Cries'
Beautiful music. Great blues as always from Nina.
Not bad, a bit dull in my opinion.
Really sweet, chill music. Every song was consistently great, all paired with haunting vocals.
Great example of how alt hip hop can be so enjoyable and uplifting. Really interesting use of jazz rhythms and sounds. Near perfection.
Classic album with some great songs. Slightly overplayed but we'll deserved.
I used to be unsure about M.I.A., some of her songs were great but her singing voice grated on me a little. This album converted me. There are a couple of tracks I'm less into in but so many are brilliant! Mango Pickle Down River and Jimmy are incredibly fun, others like Come Down, Boyz, Hussel etc. really give the album strength. One trait that holds for every track on the album is how engaging and interesting they are. Absolutely found a spot in my collection.
Kravitz' 80s/90s take on 60s hippie rock. Good but not overwhelming in any way. Very easy listening classic rock.
Very nostalgic indie rock. Really holds up unlike a lot of indie music of the time which sounds cheesy these days.
Easy listening progressive soul. Similar to - but not quite as catchy as - Stevie Wonder. Some songs (Wishing Well) are pretty fun but others are less memorable and makes the album feel a little long in my opinion. The more engaging fun songs don't quite make up for the cheesier overarching story of the record.
Pretty good. Difficult to make ska music which ages well in my opinion, this album is probably as good as it gets.
Pretty good. All songs are enjoyable but not mind blowing.
Maybe I need to give it another listen but this album seemed to blur into one long bland classical rock track. Good in general but nothing stood out to me.
What an album! Only knew the song "Extreme Ways" before this so this was a revelation. Such a variety of sound and feeling across the record but it melds so well. I'll definitely be listening to this more.
Mixed thoughts. Good early punk music, some good songs, some less interesting tracks.
Easy to listen to, but nothing really stood out.
Pretty decent but not my style. Objectively good work though.
Really enjoyed. Bizarre and fascinating, loved the mischievous feel and rhythms.
Scuzzy rock, not particularly interesting musically or lyrically. Not for me.
