A reminder both of how good Clint Eastwood is and how many other great song are on this album that got overlooked. Tomorrow comes today, sound check, so good
Extremely raw. The double album is still king.
Not for me but I can appreciate his appeal to men of a certain age
Underwhelmed by the lesser-known songs. Can’t get into it.
No wind up, the first song puts you in directly in the middle of their sound, in media res. I’m really digging this. Grunge-y, alt-rock. Strands of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden.
Kate Bush is such a weirdo I love it. Fave song: Rocket’s Tail.
Terrific. Flawless. I could listen to him vibe over a soul instrumental for hours
Just so smooth. Who else could get away with a song called Let's Get It On and then a song three songs later called Keep Gettin It On. Unparalleled swagger.
Liked it more than I ever thought I would. Harmonies, hooks, riffs, the lot.
I’ve heard enough in movie sound tracks and on KHJ to know what i was getting into. Good stuff
Just so good
I think I liked it? Like I liked how the music sounded in my ears, but I don’t know if I would ever listen again.
Bob Marley never really elicits any significant reaction when I listen to him. I dont dislike it but I’m not compelled to keep listening.
Not for me
A good ole time.
Not sure I ever had the patience for Beck before now. I really enjoyed sitting with this album.
5 on the back of the title track alone
Great songwriting. I’m sure the gravelly drawl appeals to certain crowd but I don’t love it.
A significant portion of my feelings about REM were shaped by the scene in Tommy Boy of them singing “It’s The End…” on the road-trip. Michael Stipe’s voice has been incepted into my brain. Overall I liked this album and if I kept listening it would keep growing on me. Also am I wrong in thinking REM is a proto-ska band? So much brass. Highlights: The One I Love, Exhuming McCarthy, sax solo in Fireplace.
Outside of owner of a lonely heart I have essentially zero experience with Yes. They’ve got strands of Rush, Queen and Pink Floyd, though I guess most prog rock bands around that time have similarities. Perpetual Change is wild with that abrupt key/tempo change. Your move might be my favorite song bc of the harmonies. I liked this album more and more as it went along. Starship trooper is a lot of fun,too.
Still just as good a listen as it was 10 years ago. Easily Kendrick’s strongest, most cogent album, from features, production and lyricism. Outside of a few exceptions, skits on hip hop albums are immediate skip material. But these are so integral to the story, Kendrick’s parents bickering on a voicemail, his friends rapping young jeezy lyrics, recreating a hit. The production is so varied and interesting. Highlights: Money Trees, Back seat freestyle, sing about me I’m dying for thirst
Just a snooze fest. Can’t do it.
Clear highlights are White Rabbit and Somebody to love. Grace Slick’s vocals are iconic. Beyond that I didn’t love too much else. Embryonic journey was a really nice instrumental.
There are a whole lot of extremely weird but memorable songs on this album (sexy Sadie, wild honey pie, piggies) which I always though was an odd choice to pair with so many serious and iconic Beatles songs (Blackbird, Julia, happiness is a warm gun). A heady mix. Used to listen to my dads vinyl of this all the time.
