I would spend up to $7 for a used copy. The hits are hits for a reason. Spaced out in the tracklisting like mileposts. Riders on the storm is a mood. Hyacinth House plods. Don't understand the Doors/Jimbo hate. Good band. 48 minutes, maybe a song too long. Cover art is meh.
I'd pay $12 for a used copy. Love title track. 4/5 stars Not particularly heavy, but awesome guitar lines. Last song meanders a bit. The harmonica is cool. I've listened to this before, return to it on occasion
Would not purchase. Ok, mid soul/r&b. I've heard Papa was a rolling stone, good track. Forgettable otherwise 2.5/5
Kinda surprised on this one. Was really into Bowie back catalog when this came out, never gave it a chance. Heard the first track at the time and said 'naw'. One this first full listen, it really is a coherent album. Don't know if I'd ever put it in rotation, though. Favorite song is Blackstar (big surprise) Would pay $8 used.
I've tried listening to this album before, never could get into it. Closer is a great track. Not a fan of the screaming or abrasiveness for some reason, especiallt attached to self loathing or sad boy lyrics.
Doesn't hold my attention enough to warrant a purchase, but still a good album. Reminds me of early YLT, Feelies, maybe like a Soft Boys. The Beast is good. Nothing turns me off. Some really cool guitar work. Maybe a little samey sounding song-to-song. Can't imagine I'll remember it enough to put it on unsolicited.
This one I've heard before. Didn't like it in 2002, not a fan now. When am I supposed to listen to this? As in, it ain't fun. Depressed, soft songs. Not bad at all, just not dynamic in most any way. Would avoid a purchase. But it is... okay. Better Beck albums before this one. Not sure if there are any after this.
I'm not sure I understand jazz. I can appreciate where it comes from, and I like some of the more exciting "musical" forms, or the more explosive improv face-melters. But something like this just sounds like a bland mess. A lot of bass solo-ing, which is just a comedy of futility in my eyes. At times it does pick up and I enjoy it when the team is in sync. Nothing really catches on first listen. On second listen I enjoyed My Man's gone Now. Would not buy, would not listen after today most likely.
Very very good. I've tried many times in the past, never could connect. It has a certain mood, kinda night timey. Long songs. Really liked, would spend $11 on used.
great album. would buy $20 or less. Clap hands is one of my faves. Love the productions Not every song works, and is probably 10 minutes too long. There's a thing tom does with his voice, occasionally, where it goes really deep with no fry or grain in it and I love when that happens.
OWN A NEW REISSUE Love this album. Such a step up over previous Dylan albums and sparked his renaissance. Production-wise sounds like radio transmitted from space. Muddy, distant, reverby. Lots of instruments in the murk. In that way kinda reminds me of Basement Tapes, in that maybe you won't catch everything unless you listen closely. So many good songs: Love Sick, Million Miles, Til I Fell in love with You, Highlands, etc. Maybe one or two middling old man Dylan tracks, as these late ones are expected to have. Top tier
heard this one many times Very good album, rocks hard addition of young pushes guitar to the front even the over played songs, our house, children still play well love woodstock, almost cut my hair, carry on pretty much a classic, not a 'bad' song on the 'bum would buy used at $10 (heard too many times)
Classic, experimenting with their songs. Really to only weak track in treefingers, but its mainly just a palate cleanser. Everything in its right place, idioteque, etc. 2nd fave RH album. Would by used for $15
I'd pick up a $8 used. Funny, twisted, interesting album. Lots of not fully baked ideas here. This is closer to what I'd consider exciting or interesting when a album comes up on this service. I've heard it before, but almost as background music. Like sweet loaf, pittsburgh to lebanon, just really cool guitar tones, sludge, solos, etc.
