Pretty nice overall. Fuzztoned/emo/pop feel. Reminds me of Daft Punk Random Access Memories a little bit. Also Eels, Cage the Elephant, that sort of thing.
Already in collection, absolute masterpiece of proto-hiphop.
Honestly kind of meh. Given the staying power of the theme, and how much I enjoy a lot of Hayes' work, surprised that the balance of the album was just sorta background filler. Which I guess it was intended to be.
Wow. Musically amazing. Will have to give it a few more listens to get the story/message processed. Reminds me a lot of The Wall, but with a more positive vibe. After two listens, I discovered how little I know about The Who beyond the radio hits of the 70's. Amazing.
Kind of meh. Not a fan of emo.
Pretty good. Classic radio hits, some jazzy EZ listening sort of stuff.
Hmmm... kind of interesting, psychadelic and punky, not sure it's "great" but I'm not a major punk fan.
Always a trip to see things I thought of as "obscure" pop up here. I like the West African sound, but when more traditional, it tends to all run together. This album does a great job of marrying the structure and modality (?) with traditional western blues rock.
Coming as it did after my highschool pivot to metal, missed this on release. Pretty good overall, though the sexual stuff is over the top for an old man.
Awesome, some good hardrock classics. So much excellent music in the late sixties, it all kind of runs together.
Really neat. As with other 1970-ish classic rock albums, a hit or two, and then a lot of avant-garde things that are kind of all over the place. Great production. Listened 2x in a row.
Skeptical from the outset... here we go! ... nice enough, just not really my style.
Dunno. The late sixties pop/punk/psych doesn't really do it for me.
Well this one takes me back. Be interesting to listen to it now vs on release as a 11 year old... Fantastic, great time in music history, the synthpop and protorap combined with the guitar work. Just wow. Great.
Oh god, my 13 year old sister is back. Goddamn if this didn't age really well. Catchy, well produced (maybe over produced). The big top 40 hits hit the memberberries better than the lesser-known tracks. Still a pretty neat listen.
Interesting... this project has exposed me to a lot of bands I've never heard of. These guys are pretty good, not necessarily my jam, and some of the other albums I found better at first listen.
Neat! Easy listening, without being "easy listening". Jazzy with an afrobeat appeal. Watching the live show that came on next, this guy is quite a performer and guitarist.
Well! This seems like something I should already be familiar with. Interesting to say the least. Like early Black Sabbath meets Jethro Tull. Weird but cool.
Nothing necessary to say here...
Not bad, bluegrass\folk not really my jam. "This is the Sea" ,1985 album that youtube fed me next, I like better.
Probably an acquired taste? More "velvet" than "underground".
