I have R.E.M.'s "Out of time" and "Automatic for the people" as two of the great albums I enjoyed when I was a teenager. I had not listened Murmur before. It is nice to find in this album some features that continued to be part of my favorites ones. 40 years later I found Murmur really "fresh" and shinny. And, making the imagination exercise of travelling back to 1983, it is disruptive album. A one that was giving to the world the clue of what a new musical era would be. However, I do not find any song that "touches" me, any emotional connection.
I loved this album. I only have listened \"Sexy Boy\". I think is fine and elegant, game changer for the time it was released. On the cons side, the last couple of songs resulted monotone to me.
Great album! With a couple of all time hymns like "You give love a bad name" and "Livin' on a prayer". It was an important piece in the stadiums rock boom during and after the 80's.
Great album. Early progressive rock. After more than 50 years it is nice to listen to it.
Amazing album. Considering the time it was recorded, it is a ground breaker. Opening the jazz to new sounds and styles. It really transport me to an incredible peace on mind.
I like this album very much. I have been listening it for years. I was the way a learned to appreciate the Arkade Fire's work. For moments, I find it disturbing. But always I find it melancholic, with a touch of sadness.
I should start declaring that Rap is not my kind of music. Having said that, the album does not like me. I just appreciate positively some rhythmic basses.
First time ever that I listen Laura Nyro. Sweet voice, nice melodies, styles fusion. It sounds to me like a precursor of some others more modern artists like Sade and Norah Jones
I like this album. Great fusion of multiple styles, perfectly mixed. Songs like Aisha are really disturbing.
Great album. Pillar of 90's brit pop. I like it in general, starting with the clean and shinny guitars of "So young" and ending with the choral "The next life", including a beautiful keyboard session.
It is hard to believe that this album was recorded in the early 70s. Guitar sound is original and typical of Wander's trajectory. I do not like much the more melodical songs
Interesting album. Well done fusion of multiple sources. Love the song The Seed.
It is really interesting to find this album with raw grunge sound, even before it was called in this way. I acknowledge the artistic value of having influenced a generation with this way of tuning guitars, singing, etc.
I did not know this band. Maybe it deserves a second change, but I did not like too much.
Amazing album, in the dawn of grunge! Great songs like Alive, Black and Jeremy. All in this album is solid, harmonic in its own chaos.
Fine funk album.
Marvelous album. Great jazz in general. A couple of amazing songs, like "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Cryin'" and the opening with "Let the Good Times Roll"
Extraordinary album, from Take a bow to Glorious. I got to know Muse for The Resistance. Nowadays, I dont which one is my favourite. The artistic concepts generated by Bellamy's band are perfectly executed in this album.
The album starts with two great songs. But then it dilute in mediocre songs, with some exceptions. However, the album it is a good selection of brit pop of the end of the 90s.
Clearly, I do not have the musical taste to appreciate this album. Doing some research I found that most of the songs were written by Bob Dylan. IMHO, only "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?" likes me.
A great reggae album. I'd say an iconic album for this genre, plagued of all time hits. I like it!
Shame on me that I haven't listened Bobby Womack before! A delicious album plenty of nice songs. Great suggestion .
Beyond the art around this album, I dont find it appealing.
Another case where I do not understand what this album has of extraordinary.
I am not so familiar with country music but I liked it.
Interesting album. I had never listened Waterboys before. It is a good music to listen.
Essential album within the 70's symphonic rock landscape. A master piece of this genre. Musically complex, hard to digest.
Another case where I do not understand what this album has of extraordinary
I love New Order! But I had not payed too much attention to Technique. I listened it twice I really liked it. It sounds authentic for the end of the 80s. A perfect mix of synthesizers with delicious melodies.
As it always happens to me with Chemical Brothers, I like to listen a couple of songs, and then it becomes repetitive, monotonous. However, I liked it
Truly, an album you have to listen before you die! The lyrics, the guitar, his voice, all perfectly combined in this piece of art.
Great punk band in the apotheosis of this movement. To the usual punk energy and craziness, The Adverts adds a touch of nice melodies that makes the album attractive.
I appreciatte the idea of doing something artistically original. However, I dont like the result.
I always wonder in which moment an artist realizes that have created something great. In which moment did Ozzi and Tommy realize they created a new artistic movement within the rock? This album is the definion of something new. Sounds, rithms, ways of singing and playing guitar that we then listened in many other bands. This is truly an album that worth to listen. I liked it.
Good album in the dawn of Aerosmith career. I like its rock style, in the rise of hard rock, there combined energy with certain balance.
I like Frank Sinatra. He sings amazing songs. But this album is depressing, boring and I dont find a reason to be included in this list.
Super interesting combination of punk with folk influences. Great guitar sound. I did not know the band. I liked this album.
I could not finish listen it.
Good KISS album. Incredible, Bob Ezrin participated in the writing of all songs. The inclusion of some arrangements for New York philarmonic orchestra makes this album even better
PIL plays a music hard of swallow. This album is fundamental to understand the transition between punk and post punk eras. Kevin Levene's guitars are like knives. Lydon singing in a very particular way. Definetelly, album to listen before dying.
I never liked Elton John music since I was a teenager. I gave him another chance now and the result was the same. A couple of all time hits, neat pop, but I dont liket it too much.
Interesting post-punk / new age album with a hit like "Our house". I liked it.
I liked. Nice and relaxing. No idea of what is the art value to be in this list.
Not being a great fan of country music, I liked this album. Fine songs, well played.
Interesting album, with different styles combined.
An artist taking risks. A collection of experimental songs. Creative sound all over the album. Post punk at the top. It worth to be in the list.
I am hesitating in which would be my rating for this album. On one side, I found very interesting songs, with creatives ways of incorporating sounds, that you note left a legacy in future bands. On the other hand, I found part of the album really boring.
The album is as pleasant as boring. I can not find an attribute to be included in this list.
Thanks to these list I discovered a fantastic performance by The Who. I have never payed enough attention to them, and that is a big miss. It is incredible to listen in their music the influence they had in 100s of bands.
One of my favorites albums. Ground breaker at its time. Synthetized the grunge movement and gave it international impact. It was the inflection point between the 80s and 90s.
Great finding. I liked this album. Rock, hard rock, ballads, etc. It has a little bit of everything, very well executed.
Fine and delicious Cohen's disk. "Famous Blue Raincoat" is the song I liked most.
Nice album with a tremendous version of "Mrs Robinson". Classical 90's rock sound.
Extraordinary album with a powerful influence in the rock music of upcoming decades.
Last Bowie's musical legacy composed during his last days before passing away. Full of sadness, and melancholy. A beautiful final gift from David to his followers.
Great album. I liked the combination of multiple styles, with dance, pop and rock as the most remarkable ones. Enjoyable. Nice.
In my opinion, one of the greatest's U2 albums. I love it since the first song until the last one. "The fly" is my favorite. The sound of Achtung Baby is the opening of the 90´s for U2, leaving behind their 80's style.
