Full of songs l knew but didn't know they were from this album.
I've obviously heard of The Waterboys and am familiar with a number of their bits from the eighties, but I hadn't listened to an album all the way through before. A nice mix of folk and rock with some familiar songs but nothing really special.
Okay. So, firstly, as a child of the sixties, I ought to admit that I should have listened to this album long before now. I'm not sure why I haven't - but there you are. This said I knew that Tapestry was generally accepted to be one of the greatest albums of its time and it didn't disappoint. Crammed full of instantly recognisable hits and a beautiful showcase for Carol King's awesome talent, the album is a wonderfully relaxing easy listen that comforts you like a favourite blanket. I would have given it a full five stars were it not for one or two songs that didn't really make me think Wow!
I've never been a great fan of Dylan and this album did nothing to change my mind. That said it was a smooth, soulful album full of the things you would expect from Dylan. Nothing to write home about but worth a listen.
Wow! Really did not expect to like this album but was pleasantly surprised. Hard to classify the genre as it seems to me to be a mix of lots of different genres. Strangely satisfying and pleasant to listen to. I can see why it's in the list. I'll listen to this album again.
Simply masterful. Guy Garvey is probably a genius. A wonderfully sublime album which showcases Elbow's complex simplicity (an oxymoron I know). If you ever wanted to know how to build a beautiful song by carefully layering simple instrumental melodies and harmonies and blending them with apparent effortlessnes, then this is the altar at which you should pray.
It's Any Winehouse! 'Nuff said.
We have both types of music, Country and Western. But seriously, before the Fleetwood Mac we all know and love there was this album. Never heard of before but still got a very nostalgic feel from it. If you love Fleetwood Mac then listen to this.
Okay. Not sure I'm a fan but plenty to like here.
I have this album. Good listening but nothing really special.
Run a hot bath, add your favourite oil, spark up some candles, turn out the lights and let this album just wash over you. Soulful, funky R&B will soothe away your stresses. Not perfect, but pretty damned close.
If you're not clinically depressed but want to be, I highly recommend listening to this album. If you are clinically depressed then, for the love of God, please avoid. I'm somewhat amazed that albums containing swear words merit a Parental Advisory warning yet this album - which clearly advocates suicide as the only remedy for human suffering - is remarkably uncensored.
Meh! Other artists were doing this better in the late 80's.
It's Elvis Costello.
