Hot FussThe Killers
** VOMITS LOUDLY **
A staple of my youth that made political anger sound awesome
An album I respect but wouldn't choose to listen to often. The sonic landscape is rich and interesting, but I like more hooks in my music.
Not as bad as I was expecting, clearly an influential rock record just not my jam
Tuneless swagger rock, but you have to respect Perry Ferrell on some level
Missy was in your face, fiery and vulgar before it was cool
Lovely, lush proto-twee classic
Not for me.
Three gems in title track, Express Yourself and Cherish. I hadn't heard most of the rest but I liked the Prince duet (might give that a few more spins) and will listen more I think.
a fun romp! removed one star for too much of a masturbation theme
This album is a whole mood
Not listening to that garbage on my birthday
Weird album! Not very heavy at all aside from the title track. Also not very interesting
not bad just not for me
Classic. Helped revitalize the hard rock genre.
Good dose of punk, but really fairly monotonous.
I should get this on vinyl
Not really my thing. Hard to hum along to. But good as background music while listening to politicians talk.
It took several tracks, but the album locked into a groove at one point that I enjoyed.
A good listen but not as good as folklore
Just a great, muscular recording by a band at its peak
Brilliant stuff, moody yet detached.
Good for what it is, plus a couple singles that belong on her greatest hits collection
Some of their greatest songs are on this uneven record, but that might just mean that I'm a CH "hits" fan rather than a true fan
So ahead of its time in so many ways. Objectively close to a perfect album and yet... just doesn't quite get there for me.
Classic songs, not sure I love this treatment of them. But Ella is a treasure so I'm more inclined to listen to her other stuff
Solid compilation for a very fun band
There's at least a glimpse into Simon's immense talent here, in "Patterns". And of course there are hits here, but otherwise it's unspectacular.
Solid sophomore effort
legends of hip hop, impeccable rapping, but musically very spare... i think i prefer a little more texture in the music
starts strong but contains several snoozers
Great album to put into the rotation. Proto-indie rock in many ways. Great songs
Amazing band. A few misses on this album but that hardly taints it.
two stars to respect pioneers of a genre, but i'd never listen to this by choice
** VOMITS LOUDLY **
Good band, but they have to be one of your favourites to want to take the time to really digest this album
I genuinely really like No More Mr. Nice Guy... the rest was ok. Better than I expected.
you don't get much better songwriting than this. deducting a star for that shriekfest at the end of the album
This is not a good Tom Waits album, though there are several.
Instant 5. Jack White at the height of his considerable powers. Oh yeah Meg is good on it as well
The frenetic energy, the politics in Zach's lyrics, the sonic landscape, the guitar... it all hits like an uprising. Five stars.
Holds up really well. Was an instant classic then, and still qualifies as a classic today.
Nearly a 4 from me. He's a good singer
this has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. i'm afraid of what it will do to my Spotify algorithm. 0 stars if i could, 1 will have to suffice
Nothing but respect for Reznor, but NIN doesn't hit me in the feels.
there are some skippable songs on here, but it doesn't get much better in terms of the 80s sound
Feels to me like they were trying to do a Sgt. Pepper's thing... with mixed results
A bit dated, but it's chock full of bangers and creative ideas
FUCK YOU, WIN BUTLER
surprised I liked it so much
I like the Smiths better than many here because I can see past Morrissey's wankery. The songwriting is great, the band was very tight and his voice just does it for me.
