Every song sounds like an intro to a traffic report on morning radio. Bongolia is a good name. Missed opportunity for In A Bongo Da Vida.
It was neat and I could see how it would've been a bigger deal in 2009.
Just weird enough.
Solid all around. A welcome departure from their early stuff.
Seems to get better each time I listen to it.
I listened twice and liked it even less the second time. I had trouble even having it on as background music.
Had a few great songs mixed in with a lot of stuff I could skip.
More than half of the songs are in the good-to-great category. The rest are good enough that I wouldn't skip them.
I don't like Janis Joplin all that much, so I won't find myself going back to this one often. However everything else with this album is good enough to keep it it at 3 stars for me.
It was enjoyable enough, but there are better albums in this style out there that I'd rather be listening to. No songs stood out.
Great music if you're in the mood for it.
This album is a pretty decent collection of the hits.
So long, but I guess it serves as a good sampling of older country and bluegrass.
Some fun songs. They're never in the top 5 or 10 bands I think of when I think classic rock, but they could be.
Unsure if it's just a bombardment of 70s music that's wearing on me or not, but nothing on this album really stood out.
I didn't go in with high hopes, it overall, it was pretty enjoyable.
It was some generic easy listening. It wasn't helped by the fact that Traffic was on the list 2 days prior for me.
It was an alright album, but I wouldn't rank it on a list of "need to listen to".
Overall, I enjoyed it. It was different from what you'd normally think of when you hear the Bee Gees. Not sure how often I'd relisten to it, but it's got a worthwhile place in the 1001 albums.
It was alright background music, but don't think I'd actively look for more of the same.
I wanted to listen multiple times because I just couldn't tell what I liked and what I didn't. Aggressive hardcore songs are common, even some that have melodic breaks in them, but the length of the songs is what seemed uncommon to me. I still don't know if it was good or bad, but I've listened 3-4 times and still go back to it, so I guess that means I like it.
Was one of the better representations of a very particular trend of pop music from 2006-2010ish. Brought back memories of working at a mall.
I wouldn't turn it off immediately, but I don't think I'll ever seek out this album again.
He's no Kenneth G.
It seemed like this was a bigger deal when it came out. Listening to it now, it doesn't seem all that remarkable
It was a good representation of the genre.
A good bit of classic rock. There really wasn't anything that stood out though.
Overall it was good. A few songs like Wave of Mutilation and Monkey Gone to Heaven stood out.
Was a great transition from 60s to 70s rock.
It was weird and fun, and kind of enjoyable.
This album probably gets overlooked more than it should. Worthy of a spot in the list.
Everything about this was great. The timing of where it came up for our group also could've helped. We needed something mellow.
I get that this might be a great album or there's great musicianship going on here. It is just hard to get through for me. It also was in a Monday morning slot on our list so the anxiety from this one on top of returning to work was rough.
Everything about it was technically good, but I don't feel like I have to go back and listen to anything again.
I just didn't like it
Had some great songs.
Better than remembered, but still not great.
It wasn't all that great. If it wasn't David Bowie, and it wasn't put out under the circumstances it was, would it be on this list?
Nothing on this album did it for me.
It's like listening to someone cosplay a cowboy.
It was just good front to back. It fell into place on a day where I wanted to listen to it. If I was in a different mood, it might've gotten 4 stars.
Nothing stood out.
I did not like this. It felt bad giving it a one, but it also felt bad to listen to. You reap what you sow.
It was nice for a few songs.
Did not like.
Second "Live from prison" Johnny Cash album we've had recently
I like it
It's good, but it could honestly be pared down a bit.
It ended up sounding like generic psychedelic 60s music.
