Now I get why Weezer exists
Made me want to run away
Took me a while to listen bc it wasn't available on Spotify, but boy, do i regret taking so long... Bluesy country-rock that only late 60's/mid 70's could provide. The title track is the one that stands out the most for me, but the album as a whole is quite an experience.
Starts out great, but gets tiring towards the end, which made the experience of listening to it something weird
Sounds like any generic 90's band that you'd expect to find in the soundtrack of a bad movie, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
I'm not too much of a Elvis listener, but this album is SO EASY. There are a couple of tracks that i'd rather not have there, but the record is already short as it is, so they serve a function. Maybe 3.8 rather than a 4
Suprised me in a good way. I've listened quite a few 90's rock albums through here, but none of them had stand out like this one until now. fav track: Homemade
Not bad, but quite an "easy to forget" album. At least it ends with an absolute banger.
I was never much of Cash's target audience, but hearing (and seeing) him play in front of dozens of inmates was a powerful experience. Going to jump to At Folsom Prison real soon too.
It was a while since I listened to Machine Head for the last time. This is one of the albums I grew up to, so I have really fond memories of most of it's songs, but I recalled it being a bit more consistently "high energy". Not saying that tracks like Lazy or When a Blind Man Cries are bad, but there is such a high contrast with Highway Star and Pictures of Home for example that it kind of tames down the whole album pace. Smoke on The Water still sounds great despite being the single most overly-reproduced rock song. That said, this is still one of the most important records of my life, it shaped my taste in music and had it's part on leading me to be who I am today, and hadn't it been for the nostalgia, it probably wouldn't go as far as 5 stars, but I can't help myself.
Idk if it's necessarily bad, but definitely isn't my piece of cake
Think I was way too sober to enjoy this entirely, but nonetheless, it's a great psychedelic album.
As punk rock as the 90's get. No wonder this is a classic
The Stones are a consistently good band, and this album is the perfect representation of that statement. Even though it's almost 2h long, they've managed to do it without a single bad track. Sub-optimal, maybe, but none of them were less enjoyable enough to make me even consider skipping (which I tend to do a bit too often with songs I don't care that much). Overall, a great album, has some classic in it, like Tumbling Dice and Shine a Light. Probably a 4.2~4.5
I was expecting something more jazzy... The recording is great, so is the songwriting, but I felt it lacked more energy. Listened to this while reading, and it quickly merged into the background (not necessarily in a bad way).
If I were at a party, I wouldn't mind if this album played for five hours straight. Listening to it at home does not feel like the proper setup, but still, it makes me wonder what would be of music as we know it today if it weren't for Nile Rodgers. Overall good, but gets a bump up for being so influential.
Too much insanity. Even for Can.
It's a great and well produced album, but it's far from being my favorite work from Kanye. I feel like it shortened the gap between rap and pop music, but I'm not sure this is a nice thing. Overall, it's good music, features a handful of well curated samples and a few great special guests. 3.8
Jazzy, groovy and funky. I love this.
Now I get why The Strokes exist
