Faster-paced songs are very good, struggles to be consistent with the slower ballads.
Not a lot of noteworthy tracks on this one, they all kind of blend together. Also, Whipping Post lol
Nice mix of wah-wah funky bass and horns, if a little slow. Standout tracks: Billy Jack Hard Times Love to the People
Solid album. Nice sound and great voice. Standout tracks: What's Love Got to Do with It I Can't Stand the Rain 1984 Ball of Confusion
Great album. Songs about Gollum
Great album, some real classics on this one. Standout tracks: Black Dog Going to California When the Levee Breaks Some deep-cut song I got kicked out of Guitar Center for playing
Very ethereal, but ultimately it tries too hard to emulate that New Wave-style synth sound from the 80s and ends up being forgettable in places. Standout tracks: Red Eyes Eyes to the Wind Lost in the Dream
Very trippy, though the short tracks take some getting used to, each one is pretty distinct, leading to a cool "tapas" kinda experience rather than a full meal.
Long form songs that don't work isolated, but good. Standout tracks Black Man's Cry Ye Ye De Smell
Very bimodal album. Songs that aren't the hits aren't that great Standout tracks You Give Love a Bad Name Livin' on a Prayer Wanted Dead or Alive
Not really my style, though it's obvious there's a lot of skill at play here.
Very different and unique. As a concept album it's fine, the themes are pretty strong, even if the lyrics themselves are a little too esoteric in an "I'm 14 and this is deep" way. Standout Tracks Bright Horses Hollywood
Not for me. Sounds like the electronic equivalent of elevator music. Tracks are too repetitive and not distinct enough to stand out
Decent album, for sure dragged up by Freedom '90, which remains a classic.
Great album. K.Dot's storytelling and lyricism is really on full display here
Unoteworthy album, save for a couple of brief tracks
Forgettable. Feels like it's trying too hard to be edgy
Standouts are Crosstown Traffic, Gypsy Eyes, All Along the Watchtower, and Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
The album's a bit top-heavy, but that's really just due to how GREAT the first three or four tracks are
