Started somewhat slow but then really came on towards the end. The hit was Wake Up and it's a great song. Rebellion is great. Definitely an Arcade Fire album. Deep song meanings and such a wonderfully distinct sound. I think it will need to be listened to again to appreciate it fully.
This is a fantastic album. Etherial sounds throughout. Themes of love and self reflection. It's a trip from start to finish. I want to listen to it again, and I want to listen to it again with my mind slightly altered.
Love this record. Start to finish it is great. Favorite son is Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains). Reminds me of growing up and nails the aprehension I feel for my children's future. It's nostalgia and dread all at once but in the best way. Technology and development are changing the world from what we grew up in to an uncertain future and no assurances of our place in it.
An album of 4 chord breakup songs. The music is okay, but not really my sort of thing. The big tracks are catchy and the appeal is obvious.
Funky. Soulful. Fun as hell. Addiction, lust, love, philosophy of life. Hits from start to finish. Flea's bass and Fruchante's guitar are awe inspiring, Kiedis's lyrics are insane at times and deeply powerful others. Chad Smith holds it all together with precision drumming throughout.
Early Stones with heavy blues influence. A lot of tounge in cheek digs at society of the times, just as sharp today as then.
I remember hearing this as a kid when my dad played the vinyl. Headbanging then and headbanging today. Insane riffs from Eddie catapults this record into the stratosphere. Van Halen taught a lot of people how to rock. Tap tap TAPAROOO, ERUPTION!!!
Fiona's haunting voice and poignant lyrics with her piano holding it all together. Great album. New favorite track is "The First Taste" with a smooth bossanova sound and a well told story. "Pale September" is beautiful.
Non stop audio assault. Relentless energy start to finish. It must have been something to have been there to see this man live. He went 100 miles an hour his whole life and didn't care who he pissed off.
Good vibes and chill sound. Caribbean influence with spanish flair. This is the first album I hadn't heard before being recommended here and I like it. Maybe not an everyday listen, but around a campfire with friends would be the perfect ambiance. Pass the puff and relax into the mood.
Essential trip hop. Excellent album and has a spot in regular rotation.
Mid 90s electronic. I remember them from the Trainspotting soundtrack but never listened to anything else from them. Couple of bangers on there.
The best Dylan album.
Had never heard of this and now I am a big fan. What a great sound. Steel guitar solos, electric guitar, soulful vocals. Just great music.
That's Jane's Addiction all right.
This one surprised me. A few songs were old favorites, but some new good songs and the original of a song I didn't know was a cover.
It is the acoustic equivalent of a mid 90s cross colors hoodie.
Couldn't name a Miles Davis track, but I know several albums and this one doesn't disappoint. Felt more up beat than Kind of Blue, but that makes sense even just from the titles. Great listen
Better than I had expected. There were a couple of tracks I liked and a few I didn't. Blank Space and Style were good, and you can't help but dance to Shake it Off.
This record is a mood. I like it and I will listen again. Wilmot is my favorite track.
I had no idea this would be classified as a rock album, but it deffinitely is. Just the one massive hit off this record but a lot of good songs are there to hear.
The center of punk and rock fusing into grunge. Don't look too close or you'll go blind.
I can hear a lot of bands that came after Patti in this album.
Who doesn't like early Beatles. Classic songs throughout.
It is an interesting mix of early electronica and new wave melodies. Not bad
It was behind the TV the whole time! Haven't listened to this in a while and it was nice to revisit. Mike Skinner was criminally underrated.
This is punk rock. Well informed and insightful lyrics, fast paced and driving sound, middle finger to the establishment. I think I have to go overthrow a government now.
While not my favorite Bowie album, this one is still high on the list. It's such a departure from the earlier work of Ziggy. Great sound and rocking grooves drive this record.
I liked Slow Train to Dawn.
Syncopation and Chris Squire on bass. Yes Yes Yes!
Another great from Marvin Gaye. This is the record to put on when it's time to get down.
If this is truly the birth of punk rock, it's obvious. 30 minutes of classic punk.
Great album and an amazing talent. Damn shame what they did to her. So much soul and emotion bottled up in this record.
Didn't know the BeeGees did epic concept albums. Don't think I needed to know. Soaring sounds and odd subject matter. Not something I want to hear again, but glad I was able to hear this side of a band I thought was just disco pop.
If you don't like this that's okay, but just know that you are wrong. One of the greatest hip hop records of all time not only on it's own but for everything that came after it.
A record from 1983 that sounds like it sampled every hip hop album since 1990. Then it has some caribbean vibes and African influence to boot. What a wild ride.
The best of the unbelieveable CCR run? I think so.
Jean Genie, Cracked Actor, and an interesting cover of 'Let's Spend the Night Together' were the highlights.
Love this record
Weee ooooo this sounds just like Buddy Holly.
Weee ooooo this sounds just like Buddy Holly.
Kind of a mellow album from what I knew of The Boss. Good listening American music
Elvis Costello is fine. It does mostly sound like the same song on repeat, but I wojuldn't call it bad music.
SO many classics on this record. Excellent
The iconoic voice of Cohen is grating, but the message is powerful. Amazing poetry but musically I prefer it in small doses.
Easy listening. Amazing musicianship, these guys can flat out play. Surprisingly deep lyrics and themes. I had heard all the hits on the radio and knew they were very talented musicians, but I was never into it enough to actually listen. I have a new appreciation for Steely Dan.
This is music to get romantic with. Like Led Zepplin IV in Fast Times but better
Mellow trippy sounds.
Beautiful voice. Some interesting covers that I hadn't heard before. Not something I would normally listen to, but I am glad to have heard it.
This sounds like the orgins of The Dropkick Murphys. Irish folk and punk fusion with some middle eastern and spanish influence as well. What a wild mix of sound that comes together in a wonderfully strange way.
Good sound with a few standout tracks that I liked. Damaged and Movin on Up were favorites.
Linkin Park was super cool when I was 20. 20 years later, not so much. Lyrically interesting but the music just doesn't do anything for me almost to the point of being annoying.
Pixies are great and this is a good album.
It's a Marvin Gaye record. Good soul/R&B. Amazing voice. Social commentary. Good stuff
A key album in The Beatles transition from a live act to a studio band. Lots of experimental sounds with the earlier pop song style. Great album.
The original hip hop songs in one album. I didn't think I would see a 'Best Of' record on here, but here we are.
