Surprised at how many songs I already knew. Great fun listen.
Very much my kind of thing. Two notes: each song feels slightly longer than it needed to be, and the vocals are just on the edge of annoying to me. That said, I dig the music and the lyrics, so it balances out.
I enjoyed every song on this album, with no exception. Trillium was a highlight. I can certainly think of worse ways to spend 39 minutes than listening to solid folk rock.
I liked Driftwood, but I'm struggling to find anything to say about the album as a whole. It's pleasant enough.
Not familiar with any of these tracks before, but I'm having a good time with this album. Incomprehensible hollering and then a piano and a guitar do something wonderful. Highlights are Tumbling Dice, Torn and Frayed, and Ventilator Blues.
Reminds me a bit of early Nick Cave, though I'm sure that's the wrong way around. Highlight: Kimberly.
Highlight: Range Life, but I loved this whole album.
Beautiful album. Loved every track.
Highlight: Kick in the Eye, The Passion of Lovers. I'm not sure how to interact with this album. It feels like it's having a conversation I don't know enough to keep up with.
Highlights: I Want You, Shine a Light. It felt weirdly timeless, or more modern than it is. Generally a good listen.
Highlights are The Mind of Love, Miss Chatelaine, So It Shall Be, Constant Craving. I don't know why I never thought to look up more of her music. It's beautiful, and I love it.
Already a favorite album since I was a child. Absolute favorites: Never Going Back Again.
Highlights: This Must be the Place I've Waited Years to Leave, Only the Wind, Nervously. - I didn't vibe with this album. It's good, well made, and with a few songs I enjoyed, but I just couldn't connect with it the way I wanted to.
Highlights: Won't Trade, Life is Better. Tracks range from solid to gorgeous. The percussion, all the way through, is just damn good.
Highlights: TV Movie, Glory Days, Like a Friend. I am just not having a good time listening to this album. It's making me feel like I've forgotten how and why I listen to music at all, as though by being kind of annoying it's retroactively ruined the entire concept of music for me. There are moments that are lovely, lyrics that are clever, but there's not a single song I would choose to listen to ever again.
Highlights: Bloodsport. I love an album that is specific and pointed in what it's angry about. Also I love a funky guitar groove.
Highlights: Halftime, One Time 4 your Mind. Just a great sounding album. Even if you think you don't like the genre, give it a shot.
There's some pearls of real beauty here. Highlights: What Can I Do?, For Today I am a Boy.
Highlights: Don't Want to Know, May You Never. When the vocals aren't infuriatingly mumbly this is a gorgeous album.
Highlights: Black Skinhead, Guilt Trip. I don't know what to do with this album. I appreciate the industrial experimental production, and that it doesn't waste any of its time.
Highlights: Wandering Star. Another album that was totally new to me, and I enjoyed it.
There's nothing new to say about the Beatles. I grew up listening to them with my parents, I can't help but love it, you know? Highlights: All My Loving, Till There Was You, You Really Got a Hold on Me.
Highlights: Ain't No Use. Fun, charming folky rock.
Highlights: I'm Finding it Harder to Be a Gentleman, Now Mary. I thought I was pretty familiar with this one, loved the singles on it, but it's very nice to get reacquainted with it like an old friend.
Highlights: Green Onions, I Got a Woman. Starts very strong, but it does drag on a bit by the end. Fun, mostly.
Highlights: Everything Must Go, The Girl Who Wanted to Be God, Australia, Interiors. If I had known about this band when I was 16 they would've been my favorite band in the whole world. It's good 90s alternative.
A playful album, maybe even tricky. Reminds me of Bowie, Talking Heads, that sort of thing, which is obvious. Highlights: King's Lead Hat, Here He Comes, Julie With, Through Hollow Lands, Spider and I. This might be my favorite recommendation of this whole project.
One of a very few albums I've bought for myself. Loud, messy, laddish, I love it. Highlights: Dancing Shoes, Still Take You Home.
Highlights: Been It, Lovefool. It's a decent album around a huge hit. The Iron Man cover was a fun surprise.
Highlights: Marquee Moon.
Highlights: More than a Whisper, Lookin' For the Time, One of These Days.
not my usual jam, but it's solid. highlights: Let There Be Light, Stress.
I tried, but it's not doing anything for me. Highlights: If I Think.
Charming 90s indie stuff. Highlight: She's Losing It.
Not for me at all. Highlights: Juicy, Machine Gun Funk
Everything very pretty, but nothing to stick with me. By the halfway point I was ready to be done listening. Highlights: Cold Cold Heart.
Unfamiliar with this aside from Blitzkreig Bop. It's a lot of fun, messy and juvenile fun. Highlights: Blitzkreig Bop, I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend, Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue, Havana Affair.
Shows its age, but it's not bad. Highlights: Breathe, Narayan.
Never heard of them before. I like it, and no song overstays its welcome. Highlights: In the Crowd, It's Too Bad.
A little familiar already. Highlights: Quiet Houses, Meadowlarks, Blue Ridge Mountains.
A little boring, honestly. Highlights: Visions, Higher Ground.
Highlights: Healer, In the Mood.
A brilliant surprise for me. Vocals that glow. Highlights: You Ain't the Problem, I've Been Dazed, Hero, Final Days.
Love the post-punk stuff, highlights are: Preaching the Blues, She's Like Heroin
Highlights: Thank You for Sending Me an Angel, With Our Love, Found a Job, I'm Not in Love, The Big Country
Highlights: Faith, I Want Your Sex. The rest feels like filler that hasn't aged terribly well.
This is a fun one. Highlights: Generation Landslide, Elected.
Mixed bag of classic and totally forgettable. Highlights: While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Blackbird, Rocky Raccoon.
Highlights: She Belongs to Me, Love Minus Zero, Mr. Tambourine Man, It's All Over Now Baby Blue.
Not to be ungenerous, but there isn't much here for me to hang my attention on. It isn't even bad to listen to. It's fine, it sounds like the 80s and 90s, it's fine.
Pleasant enough, and competently made. Not for me at all. Highlights: Just Like the Rain, Last Orders. Couldn't listen to: Who's Going to Shoe Your Pretty Feet.
Some fun and interesting music occasionally ruined by vocals. I'm sure I'd like it better if I didn't understand any of the lyrics. Highlights: Weber (35 seconds, no lyrics), and Human Cannonball.
Highlight: Highway Star
One of my favorite albums, one of my favorite artists. Highlights: Into My Arms, People Ain't No Good, Brompton Oratory, Where Do We Go Now But Nowhere?, Idiot Prayer. Special mention to the video for (Are You)The One That I've Been Waiting For? as an excuse to make heart eyes at Blixa.
Classic. Highlights are the ones I hear on the radio.
It gives me a feeling which is similar to but distinct from nostalgia. Like it's reminding me of something I didn't actually experience. As music, it's good. As an experience, its a lucid dream. Highlights: Spark Plug, Olv 26, Motoroller Scalatron.
Highlights: Monday, I Got You. Balancing between the conviction that I should like Wilco, and the reality that I'm mostly indifferent. It's good, it's just that I'm not really into it.
Highlights: Si tu dois partir, Autopsy, A Sailor's Life.
