Not a fan of his voice. Farmer John probably my favorite song. 2.5 out of 5. Enjoyed the music more than the singing
I enjoyed enough I listened to the album twice. It's a "in the mood" kinda music. Favorite songs Safe from Harm and Hymn of the Big Wheel. I will check out some of their other albums
A classic album with great songs throughout. Not his best album, imo, but definitely one of his better. The videos for Billie Jean, Beat It and Thriller are all time greats. Favorites, Billie Jean, Wanna be starting something and Thriller. Interesting side note, the beginning of Hella Good, by No doubt, is the same riff for Billie Jean
This was a rough album for me. Could not get into the music, lyrics or the voice of the singer. Tried to find something I liked, but just could not find it.... Not a fan. I'd give a zero, but can't figure out how to put vote in without any stars
Guy does a nice version of Elvis's Suspicious Minds. Sorry it wasn't on this album because I would have had a song I liked. To me, sounds like he's whining throughout and songs seemed to run together. No favorite song. Would not recommend. A 1 rating for me
Folk music not my thing and this album only reinforced my dislike. American Pie is much like Stairway to Heaven, overplayed and overrated. I change to something else as soon as I hear it start. Listening to this album, especially Babylon, reminded me of being back in a Catholic church, as a kid Not only made me sleepy, made me consider converting to Satanism. I cranked out some Bon Scott as soon as this album ended. Felt better and quickly dismissed the idea of joining the dark side. Fav song is Everybody Loves me, baby. Just because it was different than all the other songs. I would give zero stars, if I figure out how to do.
Heard of her, but never listened to her music. I was pleasantly surprised. Thought she had a great voice and the music seemed to flow from country to 50-60's r&b, soul type sound. When I saw the album, I was like oh no, but I enjoyed. Favorites Sugarland, I wish I didn't love you so, Waltz me, years don't care.....heck I liked most of album. Loretta Lynn on last song pretty cool. Solid 3 for me
No. Just no, for me.
Another pleasant surprise for me. I wonder if he would make the album in today's racially charged environment, due culture misappropriation, or whatever it is called (excuse my ignorance). Anyway, was very good background music to start my day. Favorites include, the boy in the bubble, Graceland, I know what I want, gumboots and diamonds on the sole. Not a fan of you can call me Al. Solid 3 for me, even 3.5
Album tried too hard to be an acid trip. Flamingo and Dogfight Giggle were too over the top, but think I would have enjoyed if I were shrooming. The later in the album, the better the songs. Enjoyed onionhead in a strange way. Liked shit hits fan/sunset Blvd because I got a kid that lives off Sunset. Favs - Is it my name and Just one victory. Overall, thought Ok, but wouldn't seek out to replay. 2
Can't say I was a big fan of the album, but enjoyed Poison Arrow and Look of Love. Nothing was too bad, but nothing really stood out either. Probably wouldn't give it a 2nd listen, but if I heard Poison Arrow on radio, I wouldn't turn off. 1.5 - 2 for me
I knew I would enjoy this one! We own the CD from back in the day. Great album from top to bottom. I think my least favorite song was the biggest hit off the album, Waterfalls. But even my least favorite is a good song. Cover of Prince's, if I was your girlfriend, was bonus. Crazysexycool is the perfect name, for a great album. Have listened many times and will listen again. 4 out of 5
I know I'm in huge minority, but was never a big Nirvana fan. However, this album was very good and definitely would not turn off when/if came on. Song #2 sounded a lot like Killing Jokes song, Eighties. Favorites, All apologies, where did you sleep last night and Lake of fire. Songs that surprised me and enjoyed, Jesus doesn't want me for a sunbeam and Plateau. Overall, very good album and fully understand the historical significance of this album and this band. 4.5 out of 5. The .5 is for Dave Grohl being part of the band.
Not a big fan of Billy Joel. Nothing really sticks out for me, but, Just the way you are and She's always a woman are songs I did enjoy. Others were just OK. I'll give 2.5 out of 5. Probably not an album I would go out of my way to listen again.
Saw 53 minute album of 19 songs and immediately thought of the Ramones. Very far from anything like the Ramones I struggled with most of this album and almost quit. Stuck with it a found a few songs I didn't think were too bad. The last half of album got into a blues and rock vibe. Songs I thought ok include Union square, Blind love and walking Spanish. Tough, but made it through. 1 to 1.5 for me
I didn't mind this album. Nothing really stood out, but nothing was terrible either. Liked Leaving Vegas, I shall believe and the Na Na song. Ok for me 2.5 out of 5
What can I say, other than I'm a big fan of the 80-90s R&B. Enjoyed grooving to this album first thing in the morning, while at work. Listened again in the afternoon. Favorite song was Lady. Made me think of my wonderful, beautiful wife. Played a few songs for her last night on the deck, while enjoying the last Supermoon of 2022. Mindy, full moon and DeAngelo. It was a great night. 3.5
Not for me. First one I couldn't make it through the entire album. Just a no for me.
We'll how fitting I get to review Elvis on the 45th anniversary of his death. I can still see my grandmother crying..... Memories of childhood, my mother, my grandmother, the Kenner's and the Johnson's, every time I hear Elvis. Back to the music, as soon as I saw the artist I knew I would enjoy. Definitely brought a smile to my face. I enjoyed them all. Favorites are Trying to get to you, Money Honey and Blue suede shoes. Imo, not his best album, but very good. Solid 4 music. Definite 5 for sentimental reasons
Never was a fan of the Doors, but I did think this album is OK. Not so much the songs you hear on classic radio, but others you don't hear so much. Liked Changeling, Been down so long and Crawling King snake. Not sure I'd go out of my way to listen again, but did think it was alright. 2.5
I wish I could have seen this live! Can't say I'm a huge Brown fan, but enjoy the vibe and the energy he brings to his music. I enjoyed this album. Was perfect for preparing budget templates. 3.5
Felt like this album was going to pull me in, but couldn't quite get there. Can't say I hated, but it had a few songs I enjoyed. Not sure I would listen again, but again, but wasn't unpleasant. Liked Little Bird and how it picked up in 2nd half of sond and Happiness. Had really high hopes for Eat yourself, thought it would different, but it wasn't... 2
Cure very much a hit or miss band for me. A few songs I really enjoy, a lot I don't.... This album didn't much for me. Liked In your house and 17 seconds. All others seen to run together. 2-2.5. Probably won't take the time to listen to again
Nice! Good old fashion disco. Except for a couple slower songs, album was fun. Can't say I'd go out of the way to put on, but wouldn't turn off, if it did. I was ok with it..... Liked Le Freak, I want your love and Happy man. 2 - 2.5
Usually listen to the new album right after lunch. Not good with this album. About put me to sleep. Thought all the songs ran together. Did not enjoy. No song stood out to me. I'll give it a 1 because the dude does have a great voice. Btw, Luke's mom would love this.
So this album has 2 reviews from me. Listened in the morning and didn't really know what to think. Can't say I enjoyed, nor disliked. Definitely different. Liked Hall of mirrors and thought, not for me. Then, on my back porch after a few beers and a few hits of weed, I was listening to music, enjoying the wild life and I went back to this album. With a good, relaxing buzz, this was a decent album. Original rating 1 Follow up 2 to 2.5 May trip on shrooms Saturday and give it another listen. Haha.
Roadhouse Blues an all time classic. Billy Idol has an awesome cover. Enjoyed You make me real, Peace Frog and Maggie M'Gill. Enjoyed more than I thought. Solid 3. As a younger kid, found myself turning off most Door songs. Think they better songs are the ones that don't get beat to death on classis radio. Starting to kind of digging these guys.
Pass. A tough listen for me. Didn't make it through the end. .5 for me just because it was music
My parents were Sam Cooke fans so very familiar with a lot of his music. Even have an old 45 hanging on the wall of our rock n roll/Elvis bathroom. Anyway, thought he sounded great live with awesome energy. How awesome would it have been to see this concert!! Solid 3.5 for me. Probably closer to 4 Really liked entire album, but my favorites, Bring it on home to me, Nothing can change this love and Somebody have Mercy If you're a fan, Do NOT listen to the podcast Disgraceland, about him.
Well I've heard of Pantera and really wanted to like this album, but outside of Walk, just felt like it was too much of the same sound over and over. Hollow mixed it up a little, then went back to the sound of every other song. Definitely different, but not for me. 2 from me.
First time hearing this band. A different rap vibe. A fun, good groove kinda vibe. A lot of songs seemed have to the same drum beat, but it didn't bother me too much. Overall not a lot stood out, but generally enjoyed the overall vibe. 2.5 to 3 for me
Not sure what that was.... Not for me Would not attempt again. 0
We'll, I listened all the way through. About all I have to say...just not my thing
This album review is more about a cat, instead of music. My girlfriend, now my wife, got a cat while we were in college. The cat had live with me and my roommate, a big Who fan. The cat was given a name I can't remember. Anyway, every time we took him out, he played in this tall grass area where we couldn't see him. My roommate would look for him by singing, Tommy can you hear me. Much to Mindy's objection, we called him Tommy so much, he didn't respond to whatever name he was originally given and became Tommy! Album was a blast from the past. Good tunes all the way through. Tommy can you hear me will always be a favorite. Just seeing this album made me smile. Not their best, but good. 3.5 for me. Will make it 4 for the cat, Tommy
Very first song reminded me a little of the Doors. Thought this was an interesting album. A mixture of "kind of" punk and psychedelic to a little rock. I can't say I loved, but I did enjoy listening. Favorite song was Revelation. A good 3 for me
This is another music genre I don't get and not a fan. Maybe good background music, for sitting by the ocean, drinking a frozen Pina colada and smoking a nice, skunk smelling joint. But I'm in my office and thought this is not very good. I'll give it a 1 because his son was a pretty good linebacker at the school of convicts, Miami Florida. Suck it Canes.
Luke's mom turned me on to Ella and I have become a fan. Her voice is beautiful (so is Luke's mom!!) and her songs seem to take you back in time. Think she would have been a wonderful experience to see live. Nothing to dislike from beginning to end. Favorites Someone to watch over me, Embraceable you and Love is here to stay. But I really did enjoy all songs. Solid 4. Would and will listen to again!! Probably with Luke's beautiful momma.
Was this a coincidence on the album choice?? Maybe they should have played Sex Pistols, God save the queen, the day before this?? Smiths is one of those bands I was never able to get into their vibe. I did like a few songs like the Queen is dead, Big mouth strikes again and there is a light that never goes out. There were a few songs I was thinking WTF, like some girls are bigger than others. Thought it was just kinda, meh. 2
Good album to start a work week. Listened again to start today. 1969 and I want to be your dog are fantastic openers. Really liked No fun and Little doll too. One WTF song was We will fall. Just didn't seem like it belonged with this album and was way too long Enjoyed and would listen again. A good 3 to 3.5 for me. Will record as 3 because if we will fall.
Very familiar with Where it's at and Devil's haircut, but not a big fan of either. Was hoping some of the rest of the album would do something for me, but it didn't.... Spotify would skip right over jackass and diskobox. If I enjoyed the album, I would have tried to find somewhere else. I didn't... Pretty much neutral. Didn't really dislike, but just not for me 2-2.5
Rid Stewart was my wife's first ever concert! Remember my uncle having this album back when everything was vinyl in my Kokomo days. Distinctive voice for sure. Enjoy a lot of his music through the years and absolutely love I'm losing you. The cover of Elvis's That's alright alright into Amazing grace was another great memory from the past. Good solid album that brought back a lot of good memories from childhood. 3 to 3.5 for me.
No gimmicks, no games, just straight hard core banging. In the middle of budgeting time at work and somehow this relieved some frustrations. Also kept my co-workers out of my office while it was being played, so I listened like 3 times straight. Haha. Definitely a different punk sound from Sex Pistols or Ramones. Straight in your face. I liked it and felt like kicking my bosses ass after I listened. +1 for Pat Smear I'll give a 3
A noted Beatles hater, I enjoyed quite a bit of this album. Love Dear Prudence. Liked Back in the USSR, Everybody's got something to give and Helter Skelter. My high school used to play Today is your birthday, over the intercom, then announce the names of everyone had a birthday that day. Ended that around junior year. Ob la di, oh la da may be most annoying song ever.... I enjoyed a good portion. 3
Very aware of Costello and have heard a few songs on that radio, but never took the time to listen to his stuff. Glad I did. I enjoyed this album. Even added Waiting for the end of the world to my music downloads. Loved Waiting and likes Welcome to the working week, Alison and Mystery dance. I will now take the time to get to know better 3-3.5
Loved first song, lyrics and sound. Got really excited for the rest of the album thinking I may have found new band to check out. Rest of album, songs all seemed to run together, all the same. Not a lot of vibe or energy. Not for me VCR a solid 4. Rest of album a 1 I'll give a 2 just because of VCR
Yes was a big No. Nothing about this album I enjoyed.
This folk stuff is all folked up. Was difficult making it through the entire album. A 5 for me, making it through. A 1 for whatever this was
Liked the way I am and Stan. A few what the hell tracks. Not a big fan overall of him or this album.
Beautiful voice but otherwise, not my thing. Felt like I was listening to a 1940s movie musical. Again, talented and voice is great. Just not for me. 1 - 2 range
So song #1, Now my heart is full, reminded me of previous 3 days!! Loved the line, "I can't explain, do I won't even try to". Maybe it was the day, maybe it's the after glow of the the previous couple days, but I actually liked listening. Nothing particularly stood out, but a good listen. A good 3, with a 5 for Now my heart is full
Definitely reminds me of my teenage years back in AA. Highway Star, Space trucking and Smoke on the water are classics, although I tend to change from Smoke in the water due to over playing on classy radio. Enjoyed. Not a big fan of organs in rock, but good stuff. 3 for me. Hope to hear some Rainbow with Ritchie Blackmore
Well I have to say I'm very surprised by this album. Knew the song Eileen, but nothing else. I enjoyed a lot this album. There were times I thought this guy's voice sounded a lot like Robert Smith of the Cure. Different than my usual listening and glad I now this band has better songs than just Eileen. Solid 3-3.5.
