Historically, this is an iconic album. I don't believe it holds up completely. There are great moments, but there are some dull parts that make up a majority of the album. 5/10
It was okay. Just not my kind of music.
Classic Alice Cooper sound and a few classic songs at their dirtiest sounding moments. Less than memorable songs for most of its run time though. 2.5/5
The bad boys from down under take off with this album. There are some gems here. The title track is an SCC (Stone Cold Classic), Girls Got Rhythm and Touch too Much evoke the dirty AC/DC vibes wholeheartedly. AC/DC were nearing their peak writing around this album, depending on your point of view you might say this was the peak.
Fun and funky sounds of the late 70s. I only really like Le Freak, but the rest have good vibes as well.
It's deceptively dirty roots rock while being beautifully poppy around the edges. This is the White Stripes at or nearing their peak.
A good set of his best stuff at the time.
A few very fun songs along with some ballady sounding tracks. Overall an enjoyable album that I'd definitely come back to.
One of the greatest albums I've ever listened to. I love this one through and through. From Death on Two Legs, '39, Sweet Lady, and all the rest. This is Queen at their best.
A very fun, swinging 50s album that I will surely come back to!
Nothing very exciting for me here. A couple high points, but it felt like second tier 70s soul adjacent music.
A very good example showing that strong songwriting by an artist can work in any genre. Taylor shows she doesn't have to be bombastically pop to make great pop music. Solid work through and through.
A hidden favorite of mine that flies under the radar for most of modern music fans. Solid from the get with From Out of Nowhere through Edge of the World.
Interesting enough album. Not exactly what I want to hear though. Odd psychey... something music.
One of my favorite works from mid century. Fun tracks front to back.
As a Fighter of Foo myself, this album hits me in the feel goods. A true classic in rock music and a labor of love from our lord and savior Dave Grohl.
An interesting blend of many styles. Early ska, experimental, psych. Not exactly my thing, but an interesting album, nonetheless.
Nothing really there for me on this album. Middle ground 70s soft rock styles.
SCC of an album! Full of Motorhead classics, the kings of rock n roll.
Sorta boring for me. Nothing especially interesting, but good enough song writing.
One of my favorite indie adjacent albums of the last ten years. Under the Pressure was an integral song during the biggest depression of my life. This album has a great vibe and it feels good to listen to it.
A great country classic and an early example of not taking shit from idiotic men.
Great example of good beats and sampling mixed with solid vocals. Would revisit this one for some relaxing hip hop vibes.
Good rock n roll uh music. Solid, but not entirely memorable first listen. Will have to revisit.
Some great songs here. Some less exciting songs as well. Stevie can really craft an album though. The flow is slippery smooth.
Probably the Nirvana album I've listened to the most. Amazing front to back. The drums to start Scentless Apprentice is one of my favorite moments. There isn't much to harp on here. Great album.
This is a strange one. It's very psychedelic tinged and arty. Not exactly something I'm all that into.
A classic opening track followed by some fun punky happenings.
Good beats, fun and sometimes recognizable samples, solid rapping.
A wonderfully written and sung album. There are numerous SCCs on it.
Very 80s, very British, very Pop.
Early Kate Bush has become a secret love of mine. She's very unique and this album has her best hit, in my opinion. Running Up That Hill is massive. The rest is not as profound, but still good 80s music.
Solid punk that grew into the 80s. Not as exciting as their first few albums.
Some decent 70s bluesy rock with dated lyrics.
I had no idea about this album. It was an interesting ride. There was a great variety of sounds here and it'll take some more listening to really get a feel for it.
Tracy sure can craft a song.
I'm a fan of the dark environment they create in their music. Sometimes you need a little darkness in your life, and this one hits the spot.
Verrrry chill music. A little too chill for me. I'm sure it is a nice relaxing album when you're in the mood for something like that.
Some of it's very fun and interesting, while the rest is just psychedelic tinged trite that needed a stern trimming.
Great 1, 2 punch to start things out. Elton is nearing his creative peak with this album. Many of the songs here were new to me and remain strong pieces of work.
Devo at the beginning were much different than the Devo the world came to know. This is a fun and bare album with plenty of good times.
I feel like I'm in the Bronze in Sunnydale CA dancing with Buffy.
I've listened to the Yardbirds before, but never straight through an album. They were a big deal and this album is pretty good. Some tracks don't stand the test of time, but it's always interesting to listen to such important predecessors of rock.
What a fun, jazzy experience this was! This is the best kind of music to cook to. So we did. A very well done piece of jazz.
Exciting, fun, fast paced punk with some pop sensibility.
This is a mostly low key album with few high excitable moments.
Talking Heads are the best weird band in the world. Just look at the album title. This album has some big songs and some great, underrated tunes too.
There's some very good tracks that are SCCs here.
I love this stuff! Old country that's new to me is always approved for listening.
These guys were crazy. Some drugged out psychedelia to the extreme.
There are some fun songs here interspersed with some weird songwriting.
There are some awesome sounding songs on this album. I've never given it a true listen, and I should really revisit it more often.
This is a very interesting album. Acoustic style eclectic music all throughout. I'm not sure this is for me, but it does pique the ol brain.
A wonderful early rock album that hints at things to come in England in the near future. Well crafted songs.
What a sound this album has. Super sexy vibes.
A solid album with those sexy smooth Arctic Monkeys feelings. There aren't any standout tracks, but the overall feel of the album is great.
I love the opening track Only Shallow. The others don't hit me as well, but it is still a good and important album for alt music.
Very chill sounding album
The prog with flute kings rise to the top. An SCC prog album with room to build upon.
Pretty fun and funky album. No huge standouts to me. Although the monstrous 12ish minute song did have some wild times in it.
Mostly generic Britpop/rock. I could find better.
Fun early alternative music.
Some fun beats and good vibes. Not my kind of hip hop, but nevertheless pretty good.
The beautiful musical madness of SoAD begins.
I was in the right mood for this one. It's a great sit and think album. Relaxing and laid back, with just enough oomph to get the brain going.
I can see the draw, but this album is not for me.
Alice in all their glory. Some big hits and a few misses here.
Great album. Cult of Personality and Glamour Boys lead the charge of a solid set of songs.
There are some lovely songs. But it's filled with slow moving love songs that I can't do in huge batches.
Lovely sounding album with smash good feeling song Papa Was a Rollin Stone. Solid.
I love the overall atmosphere of the first few QOTSA albums. The driving drums, fuzzy guitar, and Homme's vocal performance make for a tasty treat.
A few fun songs make this enjoyable most of the way through.
Good old boys playing good old rock n roll.
Some great Dylan tunes on this one. He shows growth and maturity, as always. Tangled Up In Blue is a favorite here.
Good ol revival blues.
I really liked some tracks on this album. Solid dark tinged music.
Very impressive and interesting. Nothing I'd put on to be foreground music though. More of a nice background here and there.
Strong jazz music that isn't too out there for me.
There are some decent songs on the album. No killers and not the strongest Stevie album I've listened to.
A good album by one of the originals. Some classics on this one.
They're definitely club classics, just not ones I know! Interesting beats abound, not my thing though.
Smash popular hits scattered through this one. They were never my thing, but they get you feeling good!
Surprisingly solid album. Mega hits and hidden gems.
The ascent to absolute greatness continues! Some of their greatest early songs are here.
Nothing here for me. Nothing bad, just not for me.
I thought I wasn't enjoying this album, but I found myself humming the tunes by the latter half. There's some humor and interesting song structures.
The peak plateau is reached! A pinnacle of thrash metal.
One of my favorite albums. 2112 transcends music for me, it is a piece of my life. The title track is one of the greatest pieces of music ever created. While the second half is a fun mix of complementary tracks.
First wave rock classic right here. Strong album all the way through. Sunshine, Strange Brew, Tales of Ulysses. Beauty.
One of the great, but sometimes overlooked albums (and band) of the seventies. Solid work by Jeff Lynn and crew.
I love a number of songs on this album. Rainbow is one of the best album closers, while others like High Horse and Butterflies are beautifully written and performed.
Massive double album with a few great songs and a lot of filler.
What a fun album this was!
I didn't think I knew anything going into this album, but the opening track was a hot that I knew. It drops significantly as the second track screeches to a bore that continues through the end of the album.
A rocking 60s album with some character.
Pretty cool 90s hip hop. Not my thing though.
What an interesting album. Of course the classic theme from Halloween is the highlight, but there is some nice work throughout. It has plenty of oddities and strange bits, yet it takes you on a journey. And that's what music is about.
A lovely live Elvis album. The mix is a little drum heavy in places, but it's fun nonetheless.
This is some weird shtuff. Not for me.
Some good stuff here. A bit bloated with non-essential tracks. That's what a double album can do. I'm sure people out there love the whole thing.
Very cool album that I'd never heard of. There's some straight rockers and some wild electronics here and there too. Fun album.
There are more great songs on here than I expected. Solid album with smash hits.
Good stuff most of the way through. Can't go wrong with Layla or Bell Bottom Blues. But it does linger on a bit much, as a whole.
A fun look at the beginning of popular rock n roll. Lots of songs about wanting girls to love them.
Interesting look at Senegal style music.
Strange album of atmosphere and sounds I wouldn't have expected out of 1976.
Solid 70s rock record. Great bluesy sounds and some big hits that I'd never heard in the context of the album.
Never heard of this band before listening to this album. Pretty good early rock music.
Fun jazz album by one of the masters.
Half of these songs are massive radios hits years down the line, leaning hard in the overplayed direction. Objectively, it's a very good album.
Ahead of it's time record. Making some real noise in a post punk world.
Wild early electronic styles. Not my thing, but it is intriguing to hear it.
Cool album with one of the great closing tracks.
That's some club electro stuff. Not my jam, but I see the fun allure.
Early rock n roll making strides. The 60s English sound is ever present.
A staple 80s album that cannot be missed. At least half of this record is stone cold classic pop from Prince. This is him at (or close to) his peak.
A wild ride with some fun songs throughout.
A pretty good 90s pop-adjacent record. Lovefool is widely known, but I didn't know anything else from this.
I had no real history with Rod Stewart, but always liked his voice. This is a pretty good album I hope to come back to.
Raw, youthful energy climbing to a musical precipice. Solid debut.
It's a decent album with one great song in The Weight. The rest doesn't stand out much.
Not my kind of music.
An interesting and fun look into music from Mali.
There are some smash hits that stand through time. Chain of Fools opening an album can't be beat.
A wonderful early rock album that hints at things to come in England in the near future. Well crafted songs.
Some of it's very fun and interesting, while the rest is just psychedelic tinged trite that needed a stern trimming. 3
The funk masters at the end of their peak. I had a strong Funkadelic phase and this was up there, just below Mothership Connection and Maggot Brain.
These guys were crazy. Some drugged out psychedelia to the extreme. Some is good, the rest is not my jam.
I always have a good time when the Pogues come on, but never seek them out except for the excellent Christmas themed song on this album. It's surrounded by some quite great tunes and the deluxe edition has some fun classic songs performed with legends.
Very cool, early experimental indie new agey stuff. Marquee Moon is a superb track.
A pretty fun country style record I hadn't heard before. Good fun.
I love early Queen. It's very different from the Queen popular culture knows and loves (I love it too). There is some heavier and progressive sounds that disappeared by the late 70s.
Bob and the Boys Wailing away to some serious classic reggae.
Real good stuff here. Alanis knows how to write a great song, doing so multiple times on Jagged.
This is a very fun jazz album. The progressive themes hit just right. The opening track definitely feels like the strongest song.
Pretty good country style album. I'd come back to this.
White sixties sounds to the highest degree. Sounds like the Byrd's, Velvet Underground, and the Yardbirds' stylistically, with some interesting horns mixed in. The vocals are a bit samey throughout. It's not all that bad, just doesn't have anything special going for it.
Interesting and sometimes beautiful sounds on this album. Sorta Portishead sounding with some of the deeper cut Oasis stuff.
I maintain that this is probably the greatest debut album ever. Every song is great and filled with grit.
Nothing too exciting here. 60s sounding light rock n roll that doesn't bite.
A fun album of old French music. It's always nice hearing stuff like this.
Some sorta interesting bits here and there, but altogether, not for me. A little experimenty and drawn out.
The album starts and finishes very strong, but everything in between pulls it down a bit.
Cool french rap music with chill vibes.
This is some wild French avant garde, industrial, symphonic music. A wild and crazy ride. I must return to this album.
