This music makes me very nervous, overproduced, all character removed, like swimming in a pool instead of a sea full of waves.
This music makes me very nervous, overproduced, all character removed, like swimming in a pool instead of a sea full of waves.
Possibly brilliant at the time, but bit too cheesy for me.
Incoherent like the White Album is. But White Album is utterly brilliant and this one has some.songs that I find of less quality. Overall a 3 out of 5
Beautiful voice but so slick and smooth is made me very nervous
Very good album! Sound modern stillm
Classic disco album, hail to Nile Rogers
Classic Wave album, really enjoyed it, made me play Cocteau Twins, Hula and other dark music again.
Beautiful Sad album, even better than magic and Loss
One of best albums ever.
Too psychedalic for me and in my opinion outdated.
Some nice relaxed songs, but felt too much as if I was floating from earth too some far away universe. where my brain ceased to exist.
Oh well, not bad.
Nothing wrong with the record, but not the sensation it probably was then
Only knew the album with Family Affair on it. Loved this album, high on energy and brilliant grooves.
Glad it only lasted 28 minutes. Top musicians but not my type of music.
Good album but OK Computer and Kid A. are so brilliant that for Radiohead standard a 3
Best of what they do. Bluesy and raw.
Prince was funky and all, but even this funky record is way inferior to e.g. Sly and Parliament. DMSR is best song he ever did in my opinion, so a 3
Surely revolutionary at the time but now not more than possibly nostalgia. Being brought up in the punk new-wave era I have other heroes like Sonic Youth or Foetus...
Mixed feelings. Half of songs sounds still fresh other half too cheesy.
Doors will never fade away
No fair judgement as his way of singing prevents me from listening objectively to the music
Okay but not special.
Loud and Proud
With Queen 1 easily my favorite Queen album. More diverse and original than than the later albums, the other (than Freddy mercury) band members are of more influence to the music.
Appreciate the originality and see their influence on later electronic music. But it didn't capture me
Time for an very colored opinion. If I hate any band it is this dumb, fake, macho band called Guns and Roses. All image, no contents. Their worst crime is their rape of Knocking on Heaves Door, having two hits that you keep on hearing everywhere, Paradise City and Sweet Child of Mine, is their second worst crime. Best thing: tomorrow's album will be 100 times better.
Nice sibbling of Kid A and equally brilliant. Thom Yorke's voice cuts through your soul and variety in music styles is fascinating. Only reason Kid A is bit better is How.To Disappear Completely, but easily 5 stars for Amnesiac too. The 3 times I saw them life are moments to cherish.
Like the chaos , but didn't touch me A 3.
Classic. Great songs and incredible singing of Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie. Maximum score
What a discovery this is. Played this non-stop during a whole working day. Beautiful rhythm, the voices combine perfectly. Happy to be in this 1001 albums adventure
Too cheesy for me
Nice music, like it a bit more rough though. The extra songs, covers of rock and roll classics were very good.
Can try what I want but progressive rock will.never be my music. These songs keep on going on and on and on without fascinating me, while music of much greater length like e.g...minimal.music.or african rhythms or Sister Ray of the Velvet does . Guess not in my blood. Can't judge the quality, a neutral 3 stars.
Saw them live when I was 23 in open air festival Rotterdam and remembered the energy they had when playing live. And associated them with the Cross Over music of around 1990, say Urban Dance Squad's Mental Floss for the Globe and e.g. Love Rears Its Ugly Head by Living Colour . So started listening with high anticipation, but was disappointed a bit. But was somewhat disappointed, found this album bit too cheesy for me, 3 stars.
Good that I listenened to it, being a modern classic. It just is not for me. Maybe should take the time to listen better to lyrics.
Gives you all the fatbot slim energy and fun you need in life. Right here and right now!
Their best album, with the brillant Tricky still on board and with Travey Thorn. Maximquaye and Dummy in same year. Bliss.
Their 1st albums were nice. This one is terrible. Some over the top songs with Stadiumrock. Overdone. Beatles would have told them : act naturally. Some good songs but overall 2 stars for showing up in the studio.
pleasant tunes, easy to the ears. .3 stars.
No comment needed. 5 stars.
Kende hem niet maar werd er heel vrolijk van. Mooie snik ook.
Less awful than I thought.
\beautiful how their voices sound together and several classicvs, of which Helpless my favourite
Love her voice but music too melodramatic for me.
Chelsea a classic all in all but my favourites are more his melancholic songs, i Want you, Shipbuilding e.g.
Dark and impressive and.for atheist good title.
Music hating aliens took over human brains, only explanation this meaningless dumb garbage ever became popular. A well deserved 1.
Feels like silly macho music, but probably underestimate them
Being not of the love and peace and understanding generation but of the wave era, this just is way to hippy for me....
One of their most best (and most depressing) albums, rated by me as: best is Pornograhy (5 stars), then The Top (5 stars) en then this one (4 stars). Hope Pornography shows up one of these days in the 1001 albums.
Best band ever and after Strangewatys their best album. Marr&Morrissey , what more can you wish for. With lyrics that comfort you.
Catchy but lost its brilliance over the years for me
Smooth music without being annoyingly sweet.
Not their best, but as every Smiths album easily 5 stars for this one.
Best audience he could have (-:
Nice Shoegaze album, if Slowdive would not have existed 5 stars, now 4 (-:
Beautiful voice and full of classics but I am more into wilder music
Like his voice of course and the melancholy, so a 4 for that. Music is bit too cheesy for me, leads to the average of 3,
Not for me, for the Everybody talking and Cocaine one a 2 star, not a 1
Very good, and confusing, listened to album of 45 minutes and there are versions of 72 min and 75 min and whatever.
Find this utterly useless and boring
Mix of all sort of music I like, but this mixture I do not really like...
Surprising album knowing only their later hits. Not my style, but nice to listen to.
Did not know they made Ironman, which I only knew from Cardigans. Whole album survived like Ironman does
Never Mind the Pistols, here is PIL. Nice variance in music and with brilliant Jah Wobble.
Loved this one, very diverse, from laid back to melancholic to even Beatle-esque and a real beautiful last song. Full 5!
Ultimate music to relax, beeps here, bleeps there and the sun shines
Liked this one much better than the Exodus album we have earlier on. But still not my cup or tea of my type of joint... So a 3.
Better than their disco stuff but still only 2 stars.
Early Kraut with some Zappa influences, fun. But not brilliant.
Same as more old blues or rock'n roll, was I guess brilliant then but now seems bit outdated.
Most of songs I knew already, full of classics. Including the original Gangsta's Paradise... Pleasant music.
Beautiful voice and songs, damn does who made all these awful versions of You've got a friend (-:
Classic for Jazz Lovers, just pleasant music for me.
The Mighty Fall! Didn't know this first album, but as good as e.g. Wonderful & Frighening World of and Kurious Oranj. Saw them live once and was amazing, Mark E Smith made sure everything rhymes by e.g. putting "Uh" after each word, my FriendsUH dont count up to one HandUH!. 5 stars!
Never heard of them but what a brilliant band! The mindblowing noise they make with just the two of them. Saw the once brilliant Editors live yesterday and it was boring. only light effects and bombastic stuff. This is the real.deal reminding me.of the dutch noise duo ZZZ.
Am into new wave, now called Post Punk but never like Gang of Four. Still 3 stars for the wonderful base play of Dave Allen, who later made the whole world happy with Shriekback
Much nicer than I thought, nice mix of pop and hardrock
With White album and.Sgt Peppers easily my favourite. . No more teeny bopper band!
The classic songs American Pie and Vincent and more beautiful songs, and only a few I did not like. All in all a 4.
Interesting to finally hear Can, specially the Bel Air 20 min song was nice, with sounds I recognize from later Czukay/Sylvian albums, also Liebezeit worked with Sylvian later on e.g. on beautiful the Librarian. No heaven up there I think, but they both deserve it.
I am.sorry for.Dylan lovers bit if you even make It's all ovet now baby blue sound like a bad impression of the original.it was already then time to.call it a day.
The band who saved the world.
Not that special I think.
Air is always pleasant to listen to but attention drops sometimes, a 3
What a voice. Music bit smooth though, 3 stars
Great to hear the legendary Kid Congo Powers and Jeffrey lee Pierce again. being hooked on the more relaxed the Las Vegas Story I found this one less thrilling, though I see why it is in 1001 best albums.
Some classics but also fillers I think. Prefer albums like Let it Bleed or Sticky Fingers or Black and Blue.
Love his voice and his songs. Poetic and calming and still tension in the air
One of their best
Pleasant surprise, only knew their early surf songs and Pet Sounds and this one was really different.
Like their 1st two albums. Energetic, simple.songs, good voice.
Fun album, sometimes reminds me of Young marble Giants/Weekend, good discovery!
Nothing wrong with it, nothing special
Not for me to judge how radical this was. For a punk/new wave lover hard to tell. But enjoyed listening to it
Ziggy, this one, Earthling, Blackstar. The man is missed. This one poppier than others but very good. 4 stars only because others are even better,
Good combination of dub triphop gospel and black power in one. Downloaded their 5 new albums, wonder how they are.
Never listened to Dead Kennedies before, Jello Biafra's voice is brilliant and much variation in songs, more melody than much early punk.
yes, is fun bubblepop '80s music, and Live to Tell as strong as ever and He's so unusual is funny. But most songs are forgotten 2 seconds after you have heard them.
Really beautiful, will certainly listen to more of his music. His singer sometimes reminded me of Belle&Sebastian, their melancholic songs.
Love her voice but songs are too sweat for me
Did not know the band and found the album pleasant but not special. So 3*
Trevor Horn brilliant procedure and nice campy music. Still prefer Propaganda and Frankie GTH, more classic albums than this one. 3 stars
Live even more amazing, long live DJ Shadow
Such energy in music and singing, have to love life after listening this! The Passenger one of best songs ever recorded. I wanna be his dog.
Too much Party Time for me, prefer the oldschool rap like Public enemy, NWA or Dutch sensation Bob uit Zuid.
Was born too late to see the thrill in this.
Was familiar with his Ambient music, not with this album. You can hear the Talking Heads influence already, and Part B of the album nice beginning of ambient work that would follow. Loved this album
Lekker vet maar niet mijn stijl
Their 1st was their best. Trippy, Blurry, sunny, funny, freaky like Happy Mondays, bit of all good things UK music had to offer those days. Clint Eastwood true classic
Only knew some of his later work and that was much more sophisticated and less standard than this album, so no real find for me
Aggressive, but still found it boring, not much happening in this music.
How can a band making this political, interesting, honest album filled with Dub and other fantastic rhythms make such rubbish afterwards? Madame Medusa, Food for Thought, Burden of Shame, King, Tyler, album is full of true classics. This one deserves the full 5 stars!
Not my favorite Bowie album, hence 'only' 4 stars. I hope Blackstar and Earthling will soon follow!
Too freaky for me I am afraid.
Was important for the Rap music, but find it too friendly/soft, give me Public Enemy or NWA any time. Still pleasant to listen too and kraftwerk always cheer me up, so 3 stars
Only knew the weird, brilliant Trout Mask Replica of Beefheart, was surprised by this more traditional debut album. Was pleasant surprise. The last bonus track Korn Ring Finger is addictive, had to play it over and over
Like both his quiet albums like Harvest and his guitar battles with Crazy Horse. And nice tribute to Sid Vicious.
Disappointing. In my memory was much better (-:
Not the revolutionary effect it used to have i guess.
Had Fats Domino last week, this one survived the times better. Yes, music is to sweet for me but his voice is utterly beautiful and the music pleasant.
CCR always pleasant to hear, as classic as Stones or Beatles or Doors. This album I prefer over Cosmo's Factory, 4 stars
Easy Listening. I am more into e.g. the 'Easy Listening for the Hard of Hearing' (https://www.discogs.com/release/119645-Boyd-Rice-Frank-Tovey-Easy-Listening-For-The-Hard-Of-Hearing) though, so 3 stars
His voice only became better and better the older he became. This album is a bit to slick for me, prefer his older work and final masterpiece You Want it Darker. His last album would be my candidate for the 1001 albums.
Good old Husker Du, of Flip Yr Wig and Bob Mould And Grant Hart. Do like them, but not bad and not brilliant. 3 stars.
Pleasant and soulful
Classic in minimal pop music, in the tradition of Cocteau Twins, Young marble Giants. Their voices match perfectly too. Live they are equally brilliant.
One of better US guitarbands with Freak Show and Don't as best songs. 4 stars easily
Enjoy the Silence their best song ever, for the rest of album their darkness does not grip me as e.g. Cure/Sisters Of Mercy does. Seems fake to me. Like their early poppy work etter.
Bless him for having written Song to the Siren, which in This Mortal Coil version and the live version by Dead Can Dance is utterly beautiful. And for being father of Jeff Buckley. But the music is not special to me, only last song of album gripped me. 2 stars.
Melodious punk album, didn't know the band.
This is for Funk what Velvet Underground first 2 albums were for alternative music, one of favorite albums of all time. Vetter wordt het niet.
nice but for me not so special
Nice and poppy
As good as ever. Black Dog the killer track.
Would have given 6 stars if allowed. Released when I was 18 and world was Thatcher/Reagan/youth unemployment. Album that helps in troubled times, beautiful expression of what it is like being depressed or troubled or insecure or not knowing what the hell to do with life. Add Jools Holland, Thomas Leer and more giants and could be in 11 best albums ever.
Yes, (music of) PIMP and In Da Club is good to hear, but a full hour of the same music and all tough talk how 'fucking' good/strong/dangerous he is, became tiring and utterly boring.
Of terrible songs one can't make brilliant ones, not even with a Wall of Sound or the great Ronettes. 1 star for torturing mankind with this horror.
Bowie could do anything, including this funky music. Ashame of the raping of Across The Universe and no Blackstart/Ziggy/Earthling but 4 stars easily.
Mellow and pleasant.
Last albums of Nick Cave, after death of son(s) are more intense than ever. Saw him live last June and was one of best 3 concerts ever.
Quite boring actually, more nostalghia
Too cheesy for me and the cover of Soft Cell's nice&campy Say Hello Wave Goodbye hurts my ears
1 star cause I dislike his music, do not find it genuine at all. Sure,he did work with some fine producers and there are some catchy riffs, but all in all his music is boring and silly and slick. His constant 'hihihi's en 'ooohs' are annoying. And no single person on the world believes that he was Bad and after 2 seconds you wish he would stop cause he had enough. O well, just an opinion.
Knew surprising many songs of this one, some by covers of Mathilde Santing. Liked the covers better,,
Now this is music!
Better than the late live one I had to listen too, some classics. Youtube continued with Desire, my favorite Dylan album. Hope that one will be in 1001 albums too.
What a voice! Songs from brilliant to corny, but her voice makes it 4 stars
Jah Wobble hero of course and I loved this one with exotic music, even sometimes thought I heard Fad Gadget! 5 stars
If you don't like the voice of the singer, the (okay) music is also not pleasant.
This music makes me very nervous, overproduced, all character removed, like swimming in a pool instead of a sea full of waves.
Made me quite nervous.... Too much tingle-tangle for me
I knew should be brillian and all, but I find it quite boring.
Brilliant, perfect, moving, highlight of the Echo catalogue. Killing Moon of course the classic track, Thorn of Crowns my favorite. Memories of Ian McCulloch performing it live, concert hall in entire darkness, only light to be seen his burning cigarette. Much of the music of then now is outdated, this one alive as can be.
Two brilliant sons, rest less than other of their work.
Boring guys singing clichee songs, singing as much FUCK etcetera as possible or trying to be tough without any meaning. Don't mind any FUCK the Police if you have something to say. Which they don't seem to have. Worthy only to polish Trent Reznor's shoes.
Well as absolute Pixies fan I love all four Pixies albums and would rate them 5 stars easily, I did kinda like the 1st Solo album of Black Francis/Frank Black, but this one too standard rock and roll for me, so only 3 for this one. Hope Pixies will show up one of these days.
Best band ever. Their live shows are amongst best experience in ones life. But despite e.g. the Gloaming and There There being highlights in their discography and live sets, I could never appreciated this collection of sons as an album, as I do with all others from OK Computer onwards. So this is the 4 star album between the 5 stars albums they made.
Just after Tom Verlaine died, bless him. Sounds Haunted and Nervous, like it. Innovators in the NYC scene.
This one and the (even better) Morning Glory album are their claim to glory, afterwards, Oh Well... Like their f-you-attitude, the way Liam spits out the words when singing, the raw sound, very much inspired by the classic Brittish guitar sound. This one 4 stars and the Morning Glory will get 5 if it will be included in the 1001 albums.
Some of their most beautiful songs, like fantastic title track, Sara, Not that Funny. But also some mediocre ones. Bit of a mess this album. Four stars for daring to make this experimental album and the good songs
For me great combination of their bluesy-music they started with and the later style as in Beggars' Banquet.
liked and still like whole album, smart version of bubblepop, produced well and e.g. Manchild and Buffalo Stance and Next Generation as strong as when released. She was part of underrated Rip Rig+Panic, bit less smooth.
Nice and bluesy
Hate the late albums of U2 so much (a bad copy of their earlier work, I find) that for years already I forgot to listen to their brilliant earlier work. This one is stillamazing, moving, epic. Add the Achtung Baby album and their best one Zooropa and I forgive them all their later sins.
From start with the dada reference in I Zimbra, Eno involved, and the end (Drugs!) 11 classics in a row. Music can't be much better than this, a 4.999999999. After Drugs it was high time to listen to My Live In A Bush Of Ghosts by Byrne/Eno (guess also in 1001 best albums?). BTW: Am liberal in my views normally, live and let live, but can't understand that Simply Red released/raped Heaven (a bit of self censorship does not hurt does it?)
Just because these songs became overfamiliar, doesn't mean it is not brilliant. Desperado of course their best album, 5 star one, but this one (and the long Run)deserve 4 stars.
brilliant rhythms, funky and angry and how rap should be.
Just me not liking music as sweet as candy
Great album, survived much better than the 2nd one, More Specials, that was also in 1001 earlier. Rudy, Too Much too Young, You're Wondering Now (great cover, also soundtrack to Death in Paradise), Blank Expression (with lyrics used later by Daddy G/Massive Attack), love it all.
Classic, like many songs and the atmosphere but just not my favorite music
Depressed people make beautiful music. My favorite Eels album.
Only knew their hits, assumed they were too smooth for me, but kinda like the album, much variety and weirdness.
Just find this type of music boring, sorry.
They had an amazing debut album, the samples, the voice, the atmosphere, the drama. Live they were even more brilliant. Two albums and they stopped. When this comeback album came out, I was fearing disappointment. More of the same, like Morrissey became a true disappointment? But Three was louder (Machine Gun), weirder (Deep Water) and even more moving (the Rip) than what they did before. And live Beth sang even better than ever. Easily my favorite Portishead album and definitely 5 stars
I do hate the way she sings, already on this album. Later albums even worse. Only Bjork I like is her Sugarcubes period, when she was kept under control by a band
Pleasant to listen to, Mano negra more my kind of thing, 3 stars
For me this is okay, but not special, just pleasant pop music. Possibly her lyrics or attitude to life make it special? She once was live at the Best Kept Secret Festival and her show was very diva like, with perfect dance moves and so on. Found that quite boring but would also never go to e.g. Madonna.
Four albums only and 4 perfect ones. All albums deserve 5 stars. All 7 songs of this album brilliant, Automobile Noise favourite track. Saw then live twice and you can't forget experiences like that,
Beautiful is beautiful, the rest is not for me. Her voice overdramatic, her lyrics for other target group.
Like the crossover sound, less fond of the rapping, not much variation. Sabotage a classic and jazzy tunes enough to give it 3 stars
One of his three top solo albums (Your Arsenal, Vauxhall and the best, but unappreciated Southpaw Grammar). Some nice rock songs, lyrics original as always, but also the beautiful "Seasick, Yet Still Docked" and We'll Let You Know and the brilliant last song Tomorrow. Tomorrow, will it really come. And if it does come, will I still be human. Loneliness at its peak. A shame the later albums became more of a parody of what he made in his best years.
Don't know why I love Queen 1 and Sheer Heart Attack and rate them with 5 stars but can't really appreciate this one m this one is just 2 stars for me.
First songs one of most beautiful of B&S, like their first albums better than later ones, more melancholy, less fun. This is a five star album easily
Motown classic! Production, rhythm, grooves. 4 stars. Best version of the Grapevine song I know.
See the beauty in it reflecting the angst in those days and like Siouxies Nico like way of singing. But just not for me.
Hoped this 70s type of music had ceased to exist. Not m cup of tea.
Like neurotic music but this one too freaky for me
Simply one of the most beautiful albums ever.
Yes, pretty, but too sweat for me.
How can you not like this fun uplifting music!
Nice way of popularization classical music, but too cheesy for me
Let me just be frank. Over the top music. Over the top singing. Listened to Pixies (pure, direct, no BS) and then to this one (exactly opposite). 2 stars and not 1 because of, well am in a mild mood.
Was once provocative I guess but no longer for me
Finally the Pixies! This one had everything: exciting rhythms, brilliant shouting of Black Francis short addictive songs. Weird lyrics. And Kim Deal singing Gigantic. Top of the bill. Three reasons I call one of my cats Rosa. Rosa Luxemburg, Rosa Parks and of course Surfer Rosa.
Yes, their voices match perfectly and that makes music beautiful. But the music itself it not my style and songs do look alike don't they... Prefer e.g. CSNY's Deja Vu in this type of music,.
Was curious which 'peter gabriel', all first 4 album have that name don't they? This one too eclectic for me, love e.g. Solsbury Hill and Here Comes the Flood but not as strong and coherent as e.g. Peter Gabriel (4).
Nice surprise, good tip for if you need to relax.
Really not my type of music, too much love and peace and understanding makes me nervous.
Seem them live twice and while 99% of public is in awe I get utterly bored. Tried again but his voice doesn't grab my attention, while normally I am into sad songs and melancholy. Sorry, 2 stars,
Nearly as brilliant as first 2 (Cale) VU albums. Any album with Jesus, After Hours, Pale Blue Eyes, Candy Says and the weird Murder Mystery is a 5*.
The epic first song, the three hits singles, the fun Springsteen Cover, much to enjoy. And the camp and overtly gay image to be admired. Of course production by Trevor Horn is brilliant as ever. Buggles, FGTH, Art of Noise, Propaganda's Secret Wish, big hero.
I do prefer the quiet Nick Cave nowadays, but how can we resist Stagger Lee sung by Cave-the-Devil himself and the wonderful Shane McGowan?.
Was I born not understanding/liking jazz unless it is as freaky as hell like e.g. The Comet is Coming or Black Midi? Miles Davis must be brilliant, everyone tells you he is. But I just can't get a hold on it. As music was pleasant, I give it 3 stars
I love the funky music, how the classics Walk on By and Phoenix are slowly buils up into something epical. Nice discovery thanks to 1001 albums
Guess you either love or hate him
Feel bad giving Cocteaus/Liz Frazer just 2 out of 5 stars, but this album just isn't that good. It is even one of worst albums Cocteau's made in my opinion. The tension is gone, it is sweet as icecream. Previous album Treasure e.g. is one of most beautiful albums ever. 5 stars. With band Slowdive Cocteau Twins are the true heroes of dreampop/shoegazer music. And what Liz did with This Mortal Coil (Song to the Siren!) and Massive Attack is unforgettable. But this one: no. Too bad 1001 picked this album with quite forgettable music.
Brilliant album, less experimental than early work, many catchy songs like Teen Age Riot and Kissability to the long guitar tracks. Too bad these guys (and Kim Gordon) broke up. Will never forget how they ended a concert by making pure feedback and noise with their guitars, doing all sort of things guitars are not made for.
Saw them live 2 years ago and lots of energy and nice concert. But most of their albums just not as good in my opinion as many of the 'PostPunk'=Wave acts. Organ-like is fun though, Doors meets Punk
Nice timing, just before the next one in a long, long line is put on a hereditary throne. This was when the old one ruled the UK for 25 years, and is as fresh as ever. Holidays in the Sun, God Save the Queen, she ain't no human being. Classic. Unemployment, racism, and then all this silver jubilee nonsense, this deserved a brilliant F-U answer, love the lyrics, the shout/singing, the return to old rock and roll and McLarens provocative attitude. Like many things in life it lasted shortly, although we got P.I.L. afterwards.
Avalanche (listen to the Nick Cave cover!) and Diamonds In the Mine are unbelievable. The rest is forgettable. So 3 stars. Like his last album the best.
Dark. Mysterious. Honest. The Singing of Martina. The lyrics. Public Enemy's Picture Me a damn I said never. Sung by a woman (Martina) Hell Is Round the Corner. As I grow I grow Collective. Struggling with the Insane. Saw him often live and he never disappoints. This one and Pre Millennium Tension and Nearly God and unfortunately the last 2 ones after his and martina's kid died are all 5 stars. Hero.
Nothing wrong with the music, wki said it was released same period as Sgt. Peppers, that one is still standing firm, this one is average, so 3*
blijft lekkere laidback hip hop. Overleeft beter dan de gangsta bullshit.
Nice bluesy album with some beautiful backing vocals. Only knew the I Shot the Sheriff cover and the original of the Robert Johnson cover. Top songs: Get Ready, and Please Be with me and the extra track Give Me Strength Could be dropped: the Robert Johnson cover.
Three brilliant musicians, love the bass. Poppy but not cheesy.
Some bands or singers start with a extremely good album and then become your worst nightmare. Like: UB40s Signing off (also in 1001 albums), and guilty pleasure: I do like 1st Whitney Houston album. Same for Picture Book, goods songs, jazzy sometimes political like Reagan&Thatcher in Money's too Tight. Love this album. Wish they had stopped afterwards.
Nice funky album from the Golden age of Talking Heads/Byrne&Eno/Tom Tom Club. Great rhythms, poppy (1st two songs) or more African beats.
Strong, powerful music. Both the lyrics as the music, stimulating 4 mind and body, Bring the Noise, Don't Believe the Hype, Louder Than a Bomb, She Watch Channel Zero? Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos. PE fights the power!
For me Kanye West is too smooth when he does smooth music and not politically believable enough if he does more political stuff. But enough variation to enjoy.
