Hotel California (song) is amazing. Rest is pretty good. Wasted Time is a solid anthem
Exactly what you expect for an album that starts with Ace of Spades.
Good Irish drinking music. Felt like what would happen if you gave a pub band from the 1300s modern day instruments.
This is a Missy Elliott exclusive. Appreciated the monologues and the songs were mostly fine. Not my typical genre but I could see myself throwing this on again.
Just felt pretentious and too much for me. Occasionally a song or two would have good moments, but not enough to bring me back to this one.
Just couldn’t get into it. Enjoyed the sound of it, but the lyrics just didn’t grab me.
Outside of a few good melodies, I got nothing out of this one.
While I understand why some feel strong emotions about this album, this isn’t something I enjoy listening to at all.
The energy of this album is terrific. Even if it hasn’t aged perfectly, you get the message of how they felt in that time.
Really love this version of Taylor. Think I prefer Folklore to this one, but the vibe is one of my favorites
Enjoyable enough, but definitely gets dull at times and doesn’t quite earn the length of the jams.
It’s fine, but nothing that hasn’t been done better or less juvenilely.
The first theee songs sound like they could be the background to a guided meditation. Nothing special, but pleasant listening. The next three songs erase any good will and totally shift gears. More electronic, more upbeat, more lyrics (barely). Two halves, neither of which did anything amazing for me.
Not my favorite Bowie album, but still a really good album.
A fun listen, just for the voice and the showy feel of it. But it’s pretty simplistic and being another language makes me unlikely to return to it anytime soon.
This is one where I just go really? Really? There wasn’t another album out there more influential or, just better? Hard to believe. It makes me look back at some other 1s I’ve given and realize they should’ve been 2s.
Not my favorite Bowie, but still a lot to like. The piano rock vibes that come out in this album are really fun.
Great energy in this album and Sabotage is an all time get pumped song.
Third Beastie Boys in under three weeks. Middle of them, between Paul’s Boutique and Ill Communication
I appreciate that when music is in a different language, it’s just a vibe check. And this one passes
First four songs are one of the best album openers ever. Rest of the album doesn’t keep that level but still good overall.
Perfect blend of groovy and weird. Will definitely listen again
If David Bowie had 50% less lyrics and 150% more sax.
Too gloomy to enjoy that much
Just another random songwriter album that fill the thousand albums. It’s nothing special, I’m not sure why it’s on the list, but it’s not bad or anything. Just a resounding meh
Maybe a boomer take, but I really love a simple album like this. All songs are straightforward, short, and catchy. Just don’t make them like this anymore I feel.
Definitely before it time. Would never guess this was 1970. But ultimately, not quite my style.
The name of the album and the band, combined with the album cover, gave me a pretty clear idea of what the music would be. It did not disappoint.
Haven’t listened to this since high school, but man, Keith Moon is a monster in this one. Great energy for the whole thing with a few really excellent songs outside of the titular one.
Simple and cool.
A few really good songs on this one. Love Wilco
Always loved this album. Paranoid is an underrated all time song.
I love this album for many reasons, but the perfect use of piano and saxophone might be the biggest one.
If I had heard this in high school, probably would’ve liked it way more.
Steely Dan is great but I still feel that I can never name any single song outside of Reelin in the Years.
Straight bongo vibes
Prog rock is just so weird. Sometimes I’m really grooving to it, and other times I’m rolling my eyes
A perfect jazz album. Great tunes for each song and then the solos are wonderful.
Pleasantly surprised by this one. Old style country doesn’t always appeal to me but the lyrics were good and it wasn’t too much a caricature of country either.
Sounded like the music to the Multiplayer levels of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle.
I can see what they’re going for… but it’s not fun to listen to at all
I always have thought of Sam Cooke as a calm, soothing sound. This was an emery I didn’t realize he had and is making me dive into him even more. Such a fun listen.
Incredible talent but just not my favorite style of music. Feel bad giving this rating
Too much meandering, not enough grooving for my prog rock tastes
Everything about this album just fits. The name matches the sound. The cover art matches the vibe. Never heard of this one before, but now it’s easily up there.
Just not very good. There’s a certain angers energy in it, but the voice is just unpleasant and the music isn’t very impressive or enjoyable to listen to. I’m sure teenage angst elevates it but I’m 31 and this just isn’t good.
One of my formative albums. Neighborhood songs are all great in their own ways, but Wake Up is my favorite and a top level pantheon song for me. Goosebumps every time.
Not my favorite Pink Floyd, but still not bad. Just doesn’t have the same memorable songs that my favorites of theirs do.
Album woke up after two songs. I got nervous but it turned out to be a pretty solid album.
An artist that I’ve never dived into before, and that’s my bad. This is an awesome album.
