...Baby One More TimeBritney Spears
You know I'm a sucker for a good Britney album. Love it
My first introduction to Bowie. Enjoyable. Very British, artsy.
What a blast! Drums hit hard, guitar rips. Great to hear more than just the biggest hits
New artist to me. Didn't really wow me. Fine enough. There She Goes slaps.
Really enjoyed this. Pleasent and calm. Relaxing simple sound, with great lyrics.
Didn't recognize the name. But knew the first song. Folky with some early psychedelic/eastern sound. Easy to listen to. Didnt love the 2nd track.
I must just be an Elvis fan, cuz everything I hear from him I like. Including this!
I’ve never really explored Dylan’s music. Honestly I wouldn’t say I love this album yet. Poetic sure, but the vocals are so harsh. Hoping it grows on me. Some songs feel like they go on way too long.
This was bad. Felt like a punishment. Would vote this off the list.
Fun look at the earliest of hard rock. Screaming guitars. Ahead of its time.
A surprise 5 star from me! What a blast! Apparently thrash metal hyped me up big time. Guitar solos were insane!
Nice voice. Easy listening. Songs kinda all sounded the same. Too many skit tracks. Surprise Andre 3000 feature near the end.
Definitely not my cup of tea. Wonky beats, odd tone. Just unpleasant to listen to.
So impressed that was live! The British rock / classical blend is great. Pure talent to pull that off. Defiantly one to listen start to finish to get the full effect. Organ sound can be a bit much at times.
wow! So I had skipped this one for months since it's not available on Apple Music. Finally played through it on YouTube today, and was very impressed. So smooth, and so impacting. An amazing glimpse into the soul of the 1979s black man.
Nice sound. Easy listening, though nothing really jumped out and wowed me.
Fun 80s pop. George Michael is very passionate lol.
Nice jazzy soulful music. A little heavy on the vibrato sometimes.
Really liked this one! Impressive talent, great great music. Southern bluesy rock. Replayed immediately
Didn’t love this one. Felt all over the place. The 19 minute jam track at the end was unexpected for sure. Just ok overall for me.
Had a fun time with this one. Bobbing my head, good funk, groove, music. All around good time
Liked this more then I thought I would. Was expecting bland hipster rock. But this has a great sound, good mix, relaxing vibe.
Maybe I’m just not in a funk mood today? Got into it a few times, but not enough to like it as a whole. Kinda shrill sometimes. But would probably be good on a dance floor or something
Like this one! Great voice, fun pop. Cool the whole album repeats in French
I nice sound that I couldn't quite pin down to a specific genre. Almost like jazzy reggae elevator music? I think I'm way off. A few too many instrumentals too.
Good rap, sounds just like 2005. Can definitely heard the early Kanye production on the tracks. Common has good bars. Never really heard much from him before
Points for the uniqueness. A bit long and loud for parts though
Hits were top notch! Some songs just ok. But good stuff all in all
I really REALLY liked this album. Wish I would’ve discovered this earlier in life. Can’t describe it, but it’s so good!
Feels iconic for a demographic I don't fit into. Regardless, smooth good music, especially like the incorporation of jazz instruments like flute, upright bass, congos, etc.
You know I'm a sucker for a good Britney album. Love it
Definitely sounds like 60 pop. Very Beatles-y. So I like it. Every song sounds kinda similar though.
Beautiful voice. I feel like she should be talked about more. Really good sounding jazz, all live
Never got into Brit punk, and while this wasn’t bad, it wasn’t my favorite. Maybe a song once in a while, but the album started to sound the same every song
Jazzy and soulful. A talented singer lost too soon
Honestly, I was just bored. Felt like music for a video game menu. Mixed well, but couldn’t even move to it.
Dang, 2 ambient albums in a row. Just not for me. Was so bored throughout. Just felt like an hour of a video game on a pause menu.
The Jimmy Fallon band? Raps were clean, but too much filler.
My first repeat of an artist. I like this band. Sounds so similar to the Beatles. I like the other album a little better than this one, but still good
Fun, perfect salsa album. Makes you wanna get up and dance
Pretty good. I liked the songs where he sang. Some songs were just the same riff on repeat for 4 minutes
Finally listened though a Zeppelin album for the first time. As classic rock as you can get. Great sound. Felt long, but I read it’s a double album. Really enjoyed it. Made me want to be in the 70s
2nd Bob Dylan album I’ve gotten. I really want to like his music. He’s so legendary, but man his voice is just so rough. And man that harmonica was shrill to the ears. Points for the art/creativity to the lyrics, very story like.
Enjoyed this way more than I thought I would. Perfect blend of 80s girl pop and rock.
Lana makes good music, but man every song sounds the same to me. Not in a bad way. The first song was my least favorite on this one. Cool seeing such a new album on the list.
As pure as jazz gets.
Pretty standard 90s alternative sound. Couldn't find too much info about them, besides that they covered Mrs Robinson well. Nothing stood out to me unfortunately
Some good riffs. Sounds weren't always pleasent on the ears though. Recognized one song from GH3, but I never played that song too often lol.
Classic hip hop. Great beats. Great bars.
2nd Bowie album. Growing on me. I liked the composition a lot. The dramatic theatrical performance must be what people love. I don't understand Bowie but I'm enjoying figuring him out
WOW! Rap perfected. The lyrics just keep rolling so smooth. Beats you can bob your head to.
Really enjoyed this. Great alt rock, can definitely hear how this album inspired many bands to come around in the 90s. Ahead of their time for their sound.
Hard hitting powerful rock. Amps you up! And incredible use of vocal harmonies. Really takes it up a notch.
Did not enjoy this one. Every song was waaay too long. Just the same 4 beats repeated over and over. Music as bland as the album cover.
Never knew how far back in time LL had music! Old school style for sure. Pretty clean overall, beats and lyrics.
First time I've ever listened to a Stones album. I've been missing out. Looking forward to hearing more. This album, every song was enjoyable. And the mix was top notch
Probably my favorite 80s pop album yet. Felt like it could be a soundtrack to a musical, it was so theatrical. Great mix, lots of fun.
Incredible harmonies! These guys can groove together incredibly well. Talented musicians, singer's, songwriters. Easy to listen to and just groove. Like if Beatles we're southern rock.
Smooth Latin jazz. Makes me want to dance with my wife after a candle lit dinner.
3rd Bowie album. Gotta say I like the guy. Each album give a better look at his career. This one had some great showy theatrics to it. Loved all the space theming. Album came out not too long after the moon landing. Good stuff
Nice solid 3 star. Music wasn't bad, but man nothing really gripped me. Nothing got stuck in my head, just sounded alright then instantly forgot about it. Never knew Rod Stewart had a band lol
Nice music, definitely the definition of the late 60s hippie pop movement. Easy to listen to. Folky in a good way.
Ok, so beautiful voice, and some truly top tier rapping. Leaps and bounds better than most rappers. But each song felt dragged out a minute too long. And too many skits. But man her voice is pure.
Mostly great tracks, but I bet it would hit different on a get-away with my wife, rather than on my commute to the office. Sensual, soulful, passionate.
Yikes this one was rough. No flow, just 40+ tracks that all sounded similar and not in a good way. Terrible vocals. Songs so short. An extra star due to the Jackass theme song being a fun surprise. And there were moments when they had good riffs.
Lovely sound, excellent harmonies and storytelling in the songwriting.
This band completely missed my radar duri g their early days, but I really like their sound. A notch above the rest of the early 2000s rock bands that all kinda sound similar. But this was totally enjoyable start to finish.
Incredible spacy 70s orchestral rock. Harmonies layer incredibly. Album felt like a journey. Long but kept my attention. Synth but a full orchestra
My first time listening to The Wall. All I can say is WOW. Perfect album to test my new airpods pro. The composition is insane. Very long, but engaging throughout. Especially the end of Comfortably Numb. Loved it
Not bad by any means. Some solid groovy funk. Gotta love Le Freak. But mostly just a 45 minute groove. Gotta be in a real particular mood to put this one on
I'm finding more and more that I like the late 60s early 70s music way more than I realized. This albums continuing that trend. Good music. Wait I just looked up the band, and turns out it's Neil Young lol. Well there you go
Gotta love Frank. Smooth as always. The bossa nova that Jobim adds to the record make it stand out above the rest.
Solid late 60s British rock album. Didn't really know anything by them before. I like hearing bands from that genre other than the Beatles. Love the Beatles. Expanding my horizons
A good album, I hadn't heard of them before. Really enjoyed the use of jazz instruments, the flutes, horns, stand up bass. Would listen again. Sound was British 80s pop, but jazzy and soulful.
A few track were ok, but overall I didn't enjoy most of this one. Sounded like Coldplay but like if they weren't that good yet. Nothing too memorable unfortunately
Enjoyed this. Very peaceful mixed into the pop/rock. Cool to hear Coldplay before all the fame.
Kinda felt like it went on forever. Read up on it, apparently this album is pretty renowned? I recognized the Exorcist theme. Impress he made this album at 19 years old. Feel like it could've been chopped into tracks instead of being 2 crazy long pieces. Maybe I'm missing something, but just ok for me. Yet to have an instrumental album really grip me.
Fun in-your-face rap. A fun style, but most songs sounded really similar, and 20 songs just felt too long.
This one was tough for me. Glad to be exposed to African music, as I don't really know any. But this wasn't my favorite. Voice was shrill and so wiggly. Music all over the place and songs too long.
Never really taken the time to get into reggae, but I liked this more than I expected. Relaxing feel-good vibe. Simple but in a good way.
I can hear the influence Bowie had on the production, but Iggy's voice just didn't do it for me. The deep growly wobbly tone just wasn't pleasent to listen to unfortunately
Pretty nice sounds. Didn't really wow me, but didn't annoy me either. Comfortable 90s indie rock.
Welp turns out I like ABBA? Never knew! Enjoyed almost every song. Like disco pop with splashes of orchestra. Great harmonies. Complex but concise.
Liked this one a lot more than the solo album I had last week. Fun energetic early punk rock
Back to back punk albums. I think I may have liked this one slightly better. Felt more put together, less crazy. This album's energy pumped me up but I could not understand a word they sung lol
Wish I could say WOOHOO to this album, but what a snooze fest. One memorable track, but was bored the rest. Nothing popped out memorable at all
Interesting album. Felt like it had influence from every decade, like I couldn't pin it down in time. Nice sound, but man the lead sounds really dorky. Points for sounding ahead of their time at times though.
I had a blast with this one. Made me wanna drive fast. And play Tony Hawk. High energy, quick tempo skate rock
Good God this is torture. It's taken days to power through this, and it's yet to be enjoyable. Just noise for 74 minutes.
Pretty solid, multiple tracks brought the hype. But too many instrumentals. And sometimes the distorted vocals were too much for too long.
Booooring. Ok the mix was nice and the vocals nice, but man I was bored. I described it to my wife as "stuck shopping with grandma at Dillard's" music. Sorry but wouldn't listen again.
Straight to my soul, this one! I'm not a cowboy by any means, but something about this styles makes me feel so much peace. Yeehaw all day. Perfect western music
Nice late 90s rock, nothing too mind blowing though
This album broadened my horizons on what reggae could be. Silky smooth with the sax. Relaxing in a way.
The epitome of early 90s rock. Has a simplicity to it, backed by angst and grunge. Loved it.
If power tools started a band. Sounded like what would play at the Zoolander Derelicte fashion show. Too chaotic for me
Almost gave 3 stars, but good lord that last track brought it down.
The type of rock that makes you want to ride a big motorcycle. Solid rock with a nice groove to it.
Enjoyed the arrangements on this one, lots of movement and instruments. Impressive but forgettable
Love love love Willie Nelson. The old outlaw county has a special place in my heart. Simple and somber. Great storytelling
The vocals were way too grating way to much. Took a long time to get used to. Extra star for the music sounding way ahead of it's time
Good stuff. Cool to hear quality rap from the early 90s that isn't gangster or corny. Just grooving bars
Lots of fun on this one! This is definitely an evolution of a certain branch of jazz showing the future in 1993. Hard to describe, but easy to listen to
An interesting listen, for sure. Not something I could replay very much, but cool exposure to some of the African and Asian influences woven into the music.
First impression, "wow this dude's sounds a little to horny". Second impression, "ok really this dude needs to calm down" lol. Fun to listen to though I guess
Some tracks were fun. Had to listen twice to grow on me. But too often the guys voice was so squawky every other word
Still not crazy about this guy's vibe. The loosy goosy nerd thing just doesn't quite land for me. This is the second Costello album I've gotten, and I think I liked the other one a little better. It's not terrible though, the more I replay it, it grows on me a bit
A little crazy, but no one's got the flair like this guy. Just a fun rock and roll time
nice 60s pop, love to voice on her. Easy listening
Missy deserves more credit in the game. Helped catapult female rap to a new level. Solid bars, never holding back, rapping about things we hadn't heard much of before. Some beats sound dated, but some still slap
After reading about the album, I'm amazed how popular this album was in it's day. I only recognized Wonderwall, but don't think I could've told you it was by a band called Oasis. But it was a good listen. Definitely some 90s British alt rock
My 2nd Black Sabbath album so far. The more I hear them, the more I really like them. Incredible album especially as a debut. They really inventes a new sound and feeling.
Finally got a Beatles album! I like this album because it still has influences from the 50s, but solidifies the early Beatles sound before the psychedelia came into play.
Hard to rate this one. On one hand I can tell that it is intricate and creative music, often ethereal unlike anything else. On the other hand it's like if a whale in outer space was stuck on rewind putting you to sleep.
Really surprised when I saw this came out in 88. Definitely sounds ahead of it's time. Like late 90s maybe. Most was good, but man those last 2 songs were so painful I gotta knock a star off
Enjoyable soul filled jazz. Like if the weather channel got a little funky. Must be good if an 11 minutes intro track doesn't feel like it's dragging.
Good sounding 90s rock. More gentle/radio friendly than any kind of hard rock. Feel like they could've/should've been a more commonly know group but Iver never heard of them. Good stuff though
Might be my first play through an entire Elton John album. Very impressed. The piano playing is great, and I like the storytelling of the songs.
Felt like a soundtrack to a secret agent PS2 game. Was like "how do I know Remind Me" and it's the freaking Geico caveman song 😂 unfortunately ambient albums just haven't caught me right yet. Always just feels like credit to a movie for 45 minutes
First exposure to The Who. Enjoyed it. Got that great 60s rock sound. Fun play with the ads/sell out gags without overdoing it.
Did not enjoy. Album dragged for eternity. Felt like a playlist rather than an album. Not a well thought out playlist though. Band covered 10 genres in 11 songs
Deserves the 5 stars. My first time hearing this album. This man can make true music that gets to the soul. Even at 20 songs, it kept my attention and impressed me throughout
We're the songs really long? Yes. Was this one of the most fun jazz albums I've ever heard. Also yes. Really impressive instrumentation showcasing African influence. Thumbs up
With a name like I that, I didn't expect much, but man this was right up my alley. Still has the 60s country influence with a touch of 70s pizzaz. Would listen again
definitely feel like I'd really love this band if I spent more time with them. Can definitely tell this was an inspiration for bands that would come in the 90s.
Solid 70s funk. Pretty much by definition. Took a strange turn with all the farts at the end.
Much of this album has had an effect on the American Christmas for decades, popularizing Christmas pop music. Plenty of nostalgic Christmas cheer throughout. But can only really listen in December
Cool to hear what could've come from nirvana next, but sad to know it's missing someone. Good stuff, some songs gave that nirvana sound, while others showed a new chapter of what would become foo fighters sound with Dave at the helm. Some songs sound flat. Would love a remastere
Sounds like if blue man group played while you wait in line for test track. Pretty awesome mix to it though. Amazing on a good set of headphones. Still struggling with long mostly-instrumental albums
Gotta say, wasn't expecting the toy story guy to drop the n word in the opening track. Musically the tracks were impressive, good storytelling, intricate piano. But man his voice just sounds like he's a little slow or something.
A few good bits, bit too much quirky shouting for me
Gives off a sounds that seems like they should be more popular or talked about. Solid creative 90s rock. Not mind blowing, but better than many.
Is this the best bongo album I've ever heard? Yes. Does that mean I want this much bongo in my life? No.
2nd ABBA album so far. Enjoyed this one almost as much as I did the other one. Love the harmonies and orchestral pop of the songs
Look there's both that wrong with this album, a few catchy tracks, but not enough to justify the rest. Too long, vocals fall out of sounding nice sometimes. But man, All I Wanna Do can get stuck in your head
Lots of passion, dudes really feeling the music he's making. Yells a little too much. Like every song. But yeah he's giving it his all
interesting rock style. Like a little electronic with some crazy drums.
Some cool layering on some cool beats, but man instrumentals just don't do it for me. Way too long for anything to stand out and shine
Finally something to give five stars to. Every band member going full out every track. Awesome rock, songs have good movement, creativity, and hype.
Some fun 70s rock for sure. Nice hearing songs other than smoke on the water by them. Enjoyed "lazy" the most I think.
I love this style of music. The harmonies and story telling have a comforting sense about them. Twangy but lovely.
Never heard of them, but they seem to have perfected that late 2000s indie hipster rock. Sounds nice without becoming cringey or annoying. For me though, nothing really stands out to make it amazing. Just solid hipster rock
Dudes got soul.
Not too exceptional, but I enjoyed Rene and Lazy Sunday. Fun and over the top british
There's something I really like about this guy's music but I can't put my finger on it. Music and vocals sound simple but comes across as good music. I did like the Smiths album I got a little better than this solo album
This album had an awesome upbeat pulse all the way through. Kept me bobbing my head the whole time. Each song was peak 80s pop, and now that I know Duran Duran's sound, I can tell it's them when the guy starts singing. Distinct in a good way.
Incredibly smooth voice. Songs too long though
Honestly this was cornier than I expected it to be. Most songs too long. Tough guy gangster rap, still pretty cheesey
love the early Beatles albums. Before all the fame and experimentation. Still has the doo-wop influence of 50s pop heavily throughout
Wasn't expecting this to be a 5 star for me, but even throughout 18 tracks, this album kept me engaged, fun to listen to, lyrics not corny, beats interesting. Wish 50 would've stayed on top longer
This one grew on me. Was bored at first, but something clicked. The violin was great. Definitely was a 42 year old Irish dad would love.
Not bad per say, but nothing remarkable jumped out at me. Unfortunately forgettable.
How can you not like Frank! Smooth, swanky, and swingin'. Timeless
This one wasn't for me. The xylophone sounds were nice and calming, but the songs carried on so long. Good voice, just not my cup of tea. Wouldn't seek out to play again.
Some fun funky beats on a few tracks, but the vocals brought it down. Can't decide if I like it enough for more stars
Can't deny the musicianship to be able to play that well live, but man some of the jam session sections felt like they were never going to end
One of the better late 2000s indie rock albums I've heard. I like the use of the organ and the string instruments
Incredible. Love the back and forth between Johnny and the audience. The songs were wonderful stories. Such an iconic album. A concert in a prison. Classic Cash
Good lord. So much of this was a pain to listen to. Nothing exceptional about the music, and the wailing vocals sucked.
Peak early 2000s hipster music, but in a good way. Very artistic music, great instrumentation. Calming vocals. Not my cup of tea on the daily, but can respect the artistry. Little too long
Present to the ear, but nothing really stuck out. Couldn't remember a single track.
Nice solid stadium easy rock. Better than I expected
First time sitting down and listening to. Doors album. Sounded good. Like what I think I expected. Songs were fun but the few keyboard solos were a bit shrill.
The vocals caught me off guard but grew on me quickly. So much gravel. Finished the album before realizing it was released in 2016. Raw gritty simple and cool.
Not bad! Never heard of them, but I like the overuse of horns and sax. Cool blend of funk and 80s British pop
How does this band get 2 albums on this list? It was ok. Different than the other one I had by them. Chill late 90s indie pop
2nd Joni Mitchell album I got. Nice voice, but the long round about story telling with no structure just isn't for me
Neat to hear where they started. Not quite as iconic or gripping as their massive albums to come later though. Listen with good headphones, the mix is cool
Really good! She deserves to be a rap legend. How is this a debut album from 1989?? Outshines many others from this time period of rap.
I'm not really one for instrumental albums, bit this one was better than some of the others I've gotten so far. Good experimentation without being annoying. Way better with good headphones in.
Guys probably a legend, but this album felt kinda sub par to me. Felt like every track was a demo recording. Would've liked to hear a cleaner studio sound. Dudes got soul, but this album doesn't show it off
Nothing too great on this one. Whole thing sounds like the soundtrack to a 2003 heist movie.
I've had some great rap albums so far, but I think this one takes the cake. The lyricism, the flow, the beats. All amazing. Feels way ahead of it's time.
Sounded a lot like what I imagined a Prince album would sound like. Some fun, funky hits. But also a few that last forever, and a few that sounded like Prince was definitely trying to make a move on me.
This guy's really growing on my. Voice sounds like mud, in a good way. Great poetic story telling lyrics. Simple at times, but quality
This guy's voice is so unique. Borders between cool and kinda annoying. This is the 2nd album i got by them. Grows on you the more you listen. Just gotta get in the mood for that Irish vibe
What a performer! Dude made me wanna love my wife better lol. Like a guide on how to love a woman. Guy gives it 100%
Really dug this one. Cool early 70s rock, but that extra flair of the flute was another level. Loved the poetic lyrics and that the song structure explored, kept going places I didn't expect
Look was it bad? Not really I guess. I think it was growing on me. British reggae is such an odd combo though.
Surprisingly nice for just being a voice and a guitar pretty much the whole album. Hadn't heard of him. Read he past away young. Shame he couldn't enjoy the accliam music like this would've brought him. Relaxing.
This album is its own special niche of cool. Not my fav though. Sounds like the soundtrack to a PS1 racing game in outer space.
Some good fun rock. I think I thought it would be darker, based on Alice Cooper's appearance, but it was mostly just normal rock. Only recognized the No More Mr Nice Guy song
I like the sound of this one. Many songs started to sound too similar, but I did enjoy it. Relaxing.
Albums like this are why I still do this. The exposure to incredible music i may have never found elsewhere. This album is beautiful and gave me much needed exposure to the beauty of African language in music
The type of music that deserves 5 stars. Perfect voice, beautiful orchestration. Timeless
Pretty fun album. Never listened to much Police before. Knew the 2 most popular tracks. Theyre pretty good. Can't pin down his accent though. Album ended kinda flatly. Just a fade out? But entertaining throughout
Uniquely odd voice. Grew on me. Sometimes sounded like Mr Krabs singing the greasy spoon song. But it grew on me. Liked it by the end. Long album. Guy could sing old north wind from over the garden wall
Pretty solid rap, especially for 89, the flow feels way head of the game. The skits were super cringey though. Could've trimmed a few of the shorter tracks too. But good verses on the main tracks
Ehhh not for me. Sounds like every other Irish rock band I've heard. Same instruments, same themes. Just didn't wow me.
Ahh shoot, my bias is kicking in on this one. I love this guy! This album almost felt like a greatest hits, seemed like i knew almost every track even though I've never played the album. Billy Joel is a master at songwriting and story telling. Loved it
Had fun with this one. Cool and effective modern techno alternative something. Sometimes gave me Death Cab meets Capital Cities meets Daft Punk vibes. Hip but not cringey
Classic jazz, as pure jazz as it gets
I think I like the older Coldplay stuff. Most of it's pretty relaxing. I like the more soft rock style over the more pop heavy hits a hear nowadays. But this album was nice
Too monotone, too long. Just didn't do it for me. I did like The Corrosion. Fun track, but didn't make up for the rest.
Some good blues rock riff here and there, but didn't love the vocals
Wow that first song felt like jazz on drugs for 20 minutes. I can appreciate the complexity of the music though, and it had good movements.
Like this one better than the who sell out. Less over the top with all the British stereotypes. More just a band making good music. Didn't know much about the who before, cool to know who they are better now
Woah, almost back to back Yes albums. I liked this one better than Close To The Edge. Gotta give these musicians credit, the songs have some complexity to the rock. A fun listen
I'm sure this style isn't for everyone, but I'm reading Lord of the Rings right now, and this kept giving Tom Bombadil and Goldberry vibes. So it's a win for me
Maaaan get outta here, this sucked lol. This one was not for me. This guy thing singing higher makes it better? Negative ghost rider. What a drag
Some good songwriting, but this guy only sang like 3 notes this whole album. Relaxing for the most part, but felt like the music didn't do enough
The most experimental rock I've heard that didn't get annoying. Good job. This was my first exposure to Radiohead (besides Creep). I think I could grow to like them more, but would have to be in a certain mood for it
I can't pin down what to even call the genre of this album. Splashes of rock, rap, electronica, blues and more. Definitely unique. I'd've ate this up if I was like 19 when it came out. Got a cool factor.
High level late 50s schoomzy love pop. Making the girls of the 50s/60s swoon. Great harmonies, simply cheesy classic pop. Songs are very short
You know I wasn't sure at first, because the songs were pretty long, but this one got through to me. Loving the heavy African influence over some awesome jazz
Too much noise. Not enough music. Read it's important in punk music history, but it was more painful than pleasurable to listen to. Sounds of chaos but not in a good way
Some smooth soul, but nothing really stuck out as memorable. Why is the intro to rolling stone like 4 minutes long?
What a drag. Man this one took me days to get through. Just long drawn out hipster experimental rock. Nothing memorable. It definitely exists
I like these guys funk and style. Rock with some major funk. Couple of stand out tracks, couple a bit forgettable. But definitely unique in a good way.
My guy really forgot to add lyrics to half the album. Would enjoy a Bowie album more if it had more Bowie.
Now that's heavy! Man this was some of the cleanest but gnarliest metal I've heard in a while. These guys nailed it
White Stripes sound exactly like White Stripes. And it's a good sound. Jack's voice, the guitar, the simple drum kit hitting hard. I think I liked Elephant better, but this was still great.
Anybody wanna play Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2?
I mean she's no Sheryl Crow am I right? Nah she was alright. Kinda that cliche early 90s girl with a guitar singer songwriter vibe. But she must've been one of the first that made that a thing. But man she sure like to song about wanting to bone. Like alright I get it
Easy to listen to. Gave some big Coldplay vibes, but like better for the most part. Nice
First time hearing much from her. I've been missing out. Her voice is so raw and rough, but still beautiful. Like soul come to life. Wish she could've made more.
Nice and smooth. Subject matter is sad though, mostly about falling out of love and divorce. But Marvin makes anything sound like lovin'.
Apparently I've been sleeping on Boston! This album was so polished from start to finish. These guys can jam! Lead vocals were wild. Guy on keyboard knows what's up
Pretty good, but not too memorable. Some songs dragged on forever. Good use of horns throughout. Kept thinking about George Lopez even though that song isn't even in this album.
Kanye definitely reached experimental heights with this album, and pulled it off. It's all over the place, but he's a pro at sampling and making wild beats. Though the lyrics are a bit brash throughout. I'm sure that's what he was going for though
Don't get me wrong, beautiful voice, but I kept getting JCPenny vibes. Like if the store my grandma shops at had a gospel choir every now and then. Not in a bad way though, this girl can sing better than most! Just hard to vibe to on the regular.
This one was a drag for me. Sounded like very little effort went into it. Was on the last song before realizing it was Courtney Love. Didn't change anything though. I've heard her name but don't know much about her. Music just didn't connect though
Some of the more poignant rap of the last 10 years. Kendrick is raw enough to get the feeling across. Something I have zero life experience to, but he gives me a peak in the window of the life his demographic lives in. All while going hard
That was some of the most chill and relaxing rock I've ever heard. That's some feel good music. Makes me wanna be at the beach or something. Great harmonies.
One of those albums that you instantly forget about right after finishing. Unfortunately nothing remarkable stood out to me on this one. Like i can't remember a single song to write a decent review
Always was my favorite Beatles album. Then diving into the experimental and the eastern music influences. Could listen to the whole thing often.
First listen through, I very much did not enjoy this. I recognized the album cover but knew nothing going in. The first song or two was decent, but the longer it went on the more I struggled to enjoy it. Like I was genuinely annoyed multiple times.
This is the smoothest smooth jazz I've ever heard. She is the definition of this genre. So beautiful, but I do feel like I'm walking around a Macy's when I hear this style. But I like it
Ayyy the Toy Story guy again! How does this guy write such quality songs, but sound so freaking goofy at the same time.
Almost wrote this one off as just another hipster rock band from the late 00s. But it was just enough fun and funky to be enjoyable throughout. Every now and then i swear they did their best Coldplay impression. But it was a good listen.
My first time playing through a Metallica album. Man this album goes hard. Felt so raw grungy and powerful. Love the use of eastern spounds, and even some cowboy sounding sounds on some tracks. I'm a fan now.
Surprised this one was easy to enjoy for me. Assumed it'd be a bit annoying, too brit poppy. But it was just easy going 90s British rock. But not so overly over the top British to be annoying. Felt like if the Who maybe if they were a 90s band. So that's good
I've always really liked their album "Only By The Night" but hadn't ever gone back to listen to their first album. I liked this one too, just a little less. Sounded a bit less polished than some of their later stuff. But still love this dude's voices and the style they play
That was nice! Another album of African music. His voice grew on me. Liked that there was a touch of modern (80s modern) over the African style. Enjoyable
This really honky'd my tonk
This is the 3rd Public Enemy album I've gotten so far, and while they definitely embody the feeling of late 80s early 90s gangster rap, I'm surprised to see them 3 times. I feel like no one ever talks about them any more. All to say, another heavy in your face album, fat bars on fat beats.
This album has some of the best sampling on it. When the riff to "The End" by The Beatles dropped, I was lovin that! Love the use of rock riffs in the beats. Love the way the guys rap in that call and reply style. Great stuff
Man I forgot how good this album is. She's definitely the best vocalist of the past decade or so. This album is pretty sad though. A lot of love and loss. But dang she can belt a note like nobody's business.
Their sound sure doesn't quite match their look. This sounded like if you told a business man to whip up a rock album. Kinda flat, kinda lame unfortunately. Expected more sound, something bigger/stronger.
Seems like it may be important to punk history, but didn't connect with me. Their harmonies didn't really go together. Fun enough, but didn't wow me.
Third album by The Who that I've gotten so far. Best one yet. Turns out I know a bunch of Who songs. Like 4 or 5 tracks off this album, I just didn't realize they were by them. This was a good album though. Felt like they were creating on this one, rather than the earlier albums I got sounded kinda off the shelf.
This kinda Brit-rock must be growing on my, I really jammed to this one. Felt like what I imagine being at a skate park in England would be like. Well most of it, why was that 10th track so Minion-y? Fun album though
Interesting sound on this one, lead girl's vocals were a little crazy at times, but not really in a bad way. Music style reminded me of White Stripes sometimes, I wonder if they were inspired. Pretty good rock album
Props for how unique the beats are on this one. Sometimes it was pure hype. Other times like what's going on. Didn't love the tracks with little kids rapping. But a cool blend of electronic and middle eastern.
I have always struggled to appreciate Dylan's music, but this was the first time I got through the album thinking "you know what, that was pretty great". This is the 3rd Dylan album I've gotten so far, my favorite one yet. Maybe him being younger, his vocals are a bit less crazy.
Man this one did not connect. Just felt kinda bland throughout. Cant remember a single part of it, except I recognized the Femme Fatale cover, but only because I got that Velvet Underground album like 2 weeks ago. So not bad per say, but immediately forgettable
Turns out I do miss the old Kanye. This was good though, he's definitely very creative with his beats and sampling. Albums has several big hits. He definitely had a big impact on the game. Last album before he got so experimental and crazy. Probably in my top 3 Kanye albums?
Another 2010 indie rock band that sounds just like all the other 2010 indie rock bands, but not even one of the good ones. Almost every song sounds like it was made on an iPhone app. Bland and forgettable. Not a single song even stood out.
This album made me realize that Amy walked so Adele could run. She really would've gone on to make more great music if she could've been here longer. I like her sound, no one does it quite like here.
Third Joni Mitchell album I've gotten so far. I do like her. Her voice is like if a bird learned jazz riffs. Gotta be in the right mood to groove to her. But this one was my favorite of her albums so far.
What the heck was this? Hot garbage. Maybe it's an example of the first cringy annoying rap album? Did it rhyme? Sure. Was it good? No.
Fun southern rock. Wild to realize this tone and style were around in the late 60s. I'm learning a lot doing this lol.
Love the way they can rip a guitar solo. And the drums on hot for teacher is wild. High tier 80s rock
A few tracks were fire, but a handful were dragged. But the ones that hit, hit hard! Girls got pipes like nobodies business.
What a great surprise! I judged that album cover too quick, this was some good rap. Love it when a late 80s rap album hits just right
Had no clue the guy from Are We The Yet had such impressive bars. Solid album
Definitely got that swing. Great big band sound. Keely Smith's duets sounds beautiful. Love how soaked in Italy this is too.
Funny halfway through this album i was thinking "dang this guy sounds so much like Phil Collins". Turns out I should've known they both fronted the same band lol. Definitely haven't heard this guy's name nearly as much, but it was good!
Makes me wanna ride a Harley down the interstate. Top tier, but man that guy sounds like a straight up muppet v
I mean come on, it's Dark Side
This may be the lamest rap album I've ever heard. Like if you asked the 40 year old dad's with corporate jobs to make a"hip" rap album. Cringy start to finish
Woof. With how good Rumors is, i was excited to get this, but man this was not good. Dragged on forever without ever landing. Half the songs sounds half finished, others sounds like cheesy. Only enjoyed like 2 songs out of 20
Great voice, this guy oozes soul. What a legend
Hadn't heard of this guy before, but this was a great listen. Sounded like it could've been late 70s, was surprised it came out in the 90s. A great blend of the decades' sounds. Clean mix, easy to listen to
Pretty good rap. The whole albums is pretty much political commentary, sucks to say most of it's still relevant 30 years later. But he communicated points that people should think about more often. Good stuff
Well dang, did not expect that sound to go with that album cover. How have I never heard of her, she's got a phenomenal voice! most angelic yeehaw music I've ever heard.
I mean it was good. All instrumentals on that classic 60s keyboard. 30 minutes of groovin', mostly covers. I definitely learned the title track from The Sandlot
Alrighty, the fourth Bob Dylan album I've gotten. I'm very slowly warming up to him, little by little. I at least understand his music better now. This one was good. Poetic lyrics, goofy voice, painful harmonica.
Good God help me. Was begging for this to end. Such a shrill voice. Like Joni Mitchell on crack. Singing high and loud does not automatically mean good. Hard pass
First part of the first track had me worried, but this turned out to be awesome! I liked how well some of the tracks blended into the next. Dude's vocals are insane when he gets going. Maybe only one or two tracks that didn't land. Rest was great
I mean it was smooth, but it just kinda felt too similar the whole way through. Maybe if i was in the right mood. Just felt like a really long interlude, never quite getting to any songs
It was good. Nails that 50s do-wop kinda soul. But this came out in 64? I think I need to give it another listen.
Ehhhh kinda just sound like the epitome of 90s dad rock. I swear the lead singer does the same voice Jack Black sings in sometimes. Album way too long. Good but mid
First time hearing a Bob Marley album start to finish. It's good, easy to listen to, sounds exactly like what I would think a reggae album would be. Chill if i was in the mood
You know what, this was great! Why've i never heard anyone ever mention this band. Solid vocals, great energy. Guitar and drums hit
Ice Cube definitely embodies the in your face gangster rap of the early 90s. Wild to listen to, since i was a baby when this came out, i recognize him more from his silly kids movies. But he's got that edge ya know
This album made me more relaxed than I have felt in a good while. This was the first album so far that I just kept on repeat for like 3 or 4 playthroughs. Her voice is so calming. Loved this
this is like the 5th or 6th Bowie album I've gotten so far. The man's really grown on me. I know this is one of his newest albums, but this one might be my favorite yet. It carried throughout. I had a good time jamming to it
Woah, something about this one really connected with me. Hadn't heard of them before. Complex, chaotic, put spot on tight precision. A wild blend of like Rush, Coheed & Cambria, and Death Cab? Hard to pinpoint, and I don't normally like the longer prog-rock style, but this one broke through to me, really enjoyed it
No country music is more pure than The Hag. One of my favorite artists, always brings me back to memories of being a kid and my dad having this on. I normally just hear the greatest hits albums, so this was great to hear some tracks I'd never heard.
Had only ever heard the title track. A fun pop album with lots of experimentation on it. Favorite track: Wrap It Up
A very shoo-woppy 50s pop album. Cracks me up, he singin about all these girls but this dude out here lookin like Pee Wee Herman. Album sounded clean af though for being recorded in the 50s.
Of all the early 2000s rock bands, this has got to be in the top few. Especially for this to be their debut album. Good stuff
I am really enjoying being exposed to the bands from around this time that arent the Beatles. They're all I knew for so long, its great to hear their contemporaries. This album was good, but the guys voice would go from good to goofy too much. The song about the Mother's Sons was very sad :(
An early punk album that didn't get annoying halfway through? The genre must be growing on me. Just the right amount of edge without sounding lame
Perhaps my favorite prog rock album yet. When the bass kicks in at around 6 minutes into Firth of Fifth, WOW. Some of the most technical drumming I've heard in a minute. How can he keep those time signatures?? So much movement through the songs
Oh man that's some FUNK! Got me groovin' all morning. But that last song sounded like farts the whole time though.
Relaxing, woodland folky. The music meanders gently. A nice listen. His lisp was distracting a handful of times though
Sounds just about as bad as the album cover looks. Dude sounds like the villain in a muppet movie. ... After finishing the album, found out it's Nick Cave. I had his 1997 solo album already. Liked that way more than this. This was a struggle to listen through
I'd never even heard of this band, but I really liked it. Incredibly British. Great voice, dude's almost in my ear a few times. Something about this era of rock is really connecting with me.
Dont get me wrong, it's good classic rock and roll, stands the test of time. Good quality, but didnt overly wow me. Favorite song, Cant You Hear Me Knocking
I've always wondered what this guy's music was like, I hear his name referenced all the time. Definitely wasn't expecting so much instrumental, but it was a solid jam session throughout. I like the wildness, kinda jazzy, use of lots of instruments
The singles from this album seem to stand out more than the rest of the tracks. Could've cut all the skits and trimmed out half of the features. Tightened down the album to like 12 of the best tracks, with Andre taking the majority of the verses. He has that wild flow, but most that wasn't him was iffy.
My first time listening to a Cure album. Very gloomy rock. Songs were long, but didn't drag. Leads voice is very British, but very good. Surprised this is the Monday Tuesday Wednesday song band. This album definitely has a less poppy, more depressed sound.
I like this guy's calm kinda folky sound. Lyrics are poetic. Really enjoyed this one
Music sounds ahead of it's time for 1979. I liked the upbeat songs more than the one's that droned on a bit. Some fun tracks in there, I liked Shadowplay. A few times, the singer sounds like someone's 60 year old uncle trying kareoke, kinda took me out of it. Interesting recording style, very echoey.
MY 300th ALBUM! What a relaxing way to start the day. Love that latin groove. A great lesson in Cuban music. After an hours, it all kinda sounds the same, but it sounds good, so it's all right. Great harmonies, and rhythms. Excellent
Interesting to say the least. A few of the tracks made me bob my head a little, but overall it was too much noise. Which is what they're going for, but it wasn't nice to listen to. I'm finding a lot of the punk albums don't land with me.
Right off the bat, I wasn't enjoying it, but once I got used to the accent, something popped. Favorite tack was "Wounds". Flow really picked up on that one. Listened a second time, enjoyed it more. Props for making a concise rap album.
Kinda always thought this band was a joke, and I guess they are really quirky, but man if this didn't hit hard start to finish. Unique and fun. Had no idea Rock Lobster went on that long, that was wild lol.
This is that old school country music sound I love. Twangy but smooth.
Now that's how you boogie, and that's how you groove. Fun and funky on the up-tempo tracks, smooth and cool on the slow tracks. Makes you want to dance, makes you want to be in love.
Amazing harmonies, beautiful lyrics. These guys make really good stuff. Folky and relaxing.
Now I didn't grow up in the 80s, but I think Def Leppard is my favorite 80s rock band. It's fun, but rocks, great drums, vocals, guitar solos. What more could you want. And man, this album has so many singles on it. Kept being surprised how many I knew.
Definitely polished 80s pop. Good, but almost too cookie cutter? Sounds like it was made in a factory. Enjoyable, but I don't know, it didn't resonate with me.
This is sweeping and moving, beautiful orchestration throughout, but a challenging listen. Definitely need to be in like a meditative mood to play it through. Is the album cover a Thomas Kincaid painting? Also, how is this the same guy from The Birthday Party? He got range to say the least lol
A good jam session of rock throughout, got that classic British sound. You can definitely hear the style of the 70s hanging on. Planty enjoyable, but maybe not a game changer
One of those super famous albums that I've never actually listened to. It was good, but I liked the singles I already knew the most. I think I liked 1999 better. But still good
An interested spin on Indian music, probably an easier introduction for a western listener, being interlaced with some late 60s rock elements. Great exposure, but hard to put on on a whim.
Never realized how different their sound is from most of what was coming out in the early 90s. The upbeat energy kept me hyped up. Also never realized how much his "accent" sounds kinda british? Fun punky rock
Beach Boys have such a distinct and iconic sound. Doo-wop, falsetto, surfer music, but man the lyrics make them sound like a bunch of dorks.
2nd New Order album I've gotten. I think I liked the other album (Technique) better, but this is still fun, that electronic 80s pop sound. My favorite track was Sub-Culture.
Man, 13 year old me felt so cool listening to this album! One of those albums where my nostalgia is helping it out. But I think it rocks! Especially Jesus Of Suburbia, I always liked that one. This is peak post-9/11 punk
Very impressed! This guy writes like Bob Dylan, but actually has a good voice. Cool and smooth, would listen again. Lyrics very poetic. My least favorite part about Bob Dylan is that freaking harmonica, and alas, this guy brought his as well.
Had to pull this one up on YouTube, not on Apple Music. I feel like I shouldn't like her voice, it goes crazy several times. But something about it was cool. Just enough acoustic layered into the punk sounds.
This is my first time listening to a Springsteen album, seems odd for it to me from 2002. But nonetheless, this is some polished American stadium rock. Somber but motivational, still fun, even if some of it's a bit sad.
Love this band sounds and style. Got some kinda chill southern rock something to it, but easy to jam to.
One of those rap albums I always hear about, but had never lat down to listen to. I'd be lying if I said the track with Eminem wasn't my favorite. The whole of the album was pretty good, he's got a unique style I had to get into. Good, but not as legendary as I was expecting.
One of my favorite artists. He just got such a calming tone to his music. Great album, putting his spin on popular songs, rather than western themes. Great stuff
The tough guy gangster shtick just doesn't hold up after 30 years, and that's legit the only thing he raps about for 75 minutes. Could've been shorter, less skits. He gets into a good flow a solid amount of times. The rock song was an interesting surprise. The album was good, but didn't leave me wanting more.
Immediately forgot 100% of this album. I don't think it was bad, just had not memorability. Going back for a second listen the next morning. It's kinda fun, like groovy Irish punk?
Say "one! two! three! four!" one more time, please. While the sound of this album is the 70s punk sound perfected (created really), every song sounds very similar. Does make you feel kinda cool and rebellious listening to it though. Will give it another listen to sink in,
He kinda sounds tired on this album. Almost like he's trying to do the Elvis voice sometimes. But I still like it. I like the country and gospel vibes starting to spill into his work.
