This album actually surprised me. I've never been the biggest fan of Billy Joel's music, like, at all, and as such, had very low expectations going into this. I was surprised to find out that it was a super strong album. Was it great, or particularly mindblowing? No, but the album as a whole was still really good. The vocal delivery and just the vocals themselves from Billy Joel were great, as was the instrumentation and overall arraignment. I found the album to be consistent throughout; there isn't a song that I dislike (too much, that is). Overall, I'm glad I got the chance to listen to this album. Not great, but very solid.
I can’t say that this was my favorite album, or anywhere close to it. All things considered, it was a decent listen. Nothing particularly impressed me, but nothing made me want to skip a song, which is a good sign. The vocal delivery, instrumental, and arrangement all were just okay to me, nothing more. As I said, nothing particularly impressed me, even though I still think this is a decent album and worth giving a shot.
Super interesting album. The instrumentation, specifically the guitar work, was phenomenal (it's Jimi Hendrix, what did you expect?). The basslines also stood out to me, and I thought they fit each song very well. Seeing the vocal and lyrical prowess of Hendrix on this album was also very fun, and I feel like it's overshadowed by his guitar playing. No matter the case, this album, albeit short and sweet, is certainly solid and worth a listen.
One of the more enjoyable and cohesive albums I've ever listened to. The opening track wasn't all that great to me, but the rest of the album was good-to-great. The dreamy vocals mixed with the mostly electronic instrumentals created a unique atmosphere that is a joy to experience. Very reminiscent of indie rock mixed with bedroom pop mixed with electronic. So, so good. The transitions were also so much fun. Aside from a few, Weaver's transition from track-to-track was nearly perfect, and really helped to tie everything together. Aside from a few very small nitpicks, I greatly enjoyed just about everything this album has to offer.
