Classic and arguably the best Nirvana album. Kurt's vocals shine on tracks like Something in the Way and the acoustic arrangement of Lake of Fire brings another level to the song.
Songhoy Blues - refugees from Mali due to religious (Islamic) extremist group Ansar Dine. Interesting album, really enjoyed it. The different styles of blues and rock shined through. Soulful song Mali, I don't know the language but the intent seeps through.
Surprised I hadn't heard this one before. Good album, Paul Simon is a great story teller. Me & Julio is still my favorite, enjoyed Paranoia Blues and Run that Body Down.
Fetch the Bolt Cutters was an interesting album. Power in her lyrics, going through her journey as an artist and as a woman. Clear message of women need to be heard and we won't be silenced. Especially liked the title track Fetch the Both Cutters and Under the Table. Will listen again.
I don't get Bruce Springsteen personally. I know millions of people do so I suppose it's just me. Hits aside I enjoyed I'm Goin' Down. Overall I'll say its fun album, something you can dance to when no one is watching. A best album of all time? I don't know but it does scream homeboy Americana till the cows come home.
This album is wild. Such a variation of styles, the sensual overtones, and engagement of Marvin Gaye with his musicians is captivating. His use of his music to cope with his own childhood traumas and spiritual healing comes though lyrically.
I love The Downward Spiral. I love that it hits just as hard today, while I load my reusable earth conscience bags into my family car, as it did in 1999 sitting on my bff's floor doing our makeup to go check out guys at the mall.
Musically this album is pretty standard for anything of the same time frame. So it's not it's good it's just not anything special. Lyrically and vocally it's consistent for the Bee gees ... Garbage
This was just a fun bunch of songs. Would recommend and listen to again.
The was a generic garage punk album. Really didn't bring anything new, definitely would not rate it as a "must listen".
Great collection of songs. Solid throughout, I especially liked the Iron Man cover took me a minute to pick up on what it was.
Amazing album, Hendrix was a master.
Not sure what to say... Started listening and was suddenly 6 songs in and didn't realize. Hardly a difference in songs to stand out from each other. Everyone plays well, March of the Black Queen and Funny How Love Is are pretty solid and have a different sound from the rest of the album
Blueski- love the guitar melody, great change of pace Stagger- great sound vocal combo This was honestly better than I expected
Fairly generic - A&E is easily the best song on the album
This was god awful. Beyond awful. Beep boop and repeat the same line over and over for 6-8 minutes. So happy when it was over.
Amazing album. The layering of music and sounds, talking, sound effects is intense and tells a story.
Bad brit pop. Can hear a lot of Stones and Beatles influence in there.
It's like 50/50 good/bad. I want to like it but then each good song is followed up by super meh. Maybe I'm not the demographic anymore. 2.5
Elenore Rigby is the best song on the album. Everything else is pretty okay.
Classic album, the crazy jazz piano riffs really give it a unique sound
Great synth pop / new wave sound. Amazing album, will check out more by this group.
Solidly ok elevator department store music.
This was definitely interesting, really enjoyed
Better if it wasn't live.
Beatles - the early hits
Omg this sucked
Not what I expected but good none the less
Can absolutely easily hear their influence on future heavy metal and punk.
Jam band with good vocals.
It's solid but I think most the mass appeal was the shock that a skater punk band has thoughts to put into lyrics.
Gawd, the Stones... I don't get it. Maybe if Mick Jagger wasn't vocals? Cause that guy is awful and distracts from anything that might be good.
Classic, half the album has hits that are still played today. How often does that happen.
Amazing album, so powerful and completely holds up
I love the artwork more than the album itself. Songs and lyrics were interesting but not wholly memorable. Very solid album not as good as Pet Sounds.
It's music and you can dance to it if you have no shame.
Excellent album. Felt like a conversation in music.
Better than the Beep boop of the last album (Trans Europe Express) but still not getting the hype. At least they figured out lyrics need to be longer than two words. Spacelab reminded me of the music on the space level of the NES DuckTales game.
This was surprisingly good
I think I've aged out of Metallica. It's all so repetitive and dull anymore.
It's got the hits, stars for that but the rest was meh
The hits were good, the rest of ok
There are better Wilco albums than that but pretty solid
Musically it's pretty - lyrically, obvious he was trying to process a lot while writing this album.
All the classics you grew up with
Great sound, Talking Heads always has such an interesting energy and this album is no different. Highly recommend.
If Bjork had a back up band, this would be it.
Great great album. Good Only Knows is my fav Beach Boys song.
This album threw me for a trip. I had the expected The Velvet Underground was in the realms of Bowie and The Rolling Stones but then 2/3 of this album was "I wanna be the Beatles" type stuff. BUT, get to the last three songs and it's like a completely different group. Wow. The Murder Mystery totally saved this album from the grand level Meh experience it had been providing.
Amazing album, 10/10.
The hits and every other song that could have been.
Really cool at this point in life it feels like a period piece. Definitely moment and time kind of music.
Legit definition of WTF. Just sounds like each member of the band wrote and recorded their own separate songs and then overlayed them together. Tah dah done. There's skill here but it's odd for odd's sake. "Story" songs are like Zappa but not nearly as good or entertaining.
All the hits but Clean was the best song on the album
All the Rage and Sulky Girl are stars.
Meh, I really don't see what's special here
A Cellular Song is good... Everything else is either ignorable or of it's own time and place.
I didn't want to tear my ears off like other Smiths albums. Still doesn't make it good.
Video game soundtrack
This is definitely a case of less is more 2 and 1/2 hours is beyond excessive. A hour in and it felt like I was listening to the same song over and over again. I cannot hear the big deal of this one.
Wow, The Rolling Stones can make a good album... Never knew
Good sound, good energy
Ah, back when you didn't have to be able to sing to get a record deal. Perfectly fine album once the nails on the chalk board could be tuned out.
It's like a second rate Oasis album... Not in a mean way, like, if I bought the album I wouldn't be mad about it. In the same breath, the radio hits are the best songs.
Bob Dylan, if Bob Dylan stopped trying.
CCR, jam band music that you've heard a million times but now with more jam! So bored listening to this album. Not for me.
Better than I expected
Broken Drum is an eargasm of sound. Really solid album.
70's jam band music, it's what you'd expect & nothing to write home about
On Any Other Day & Does Everyone Stare best songs, Message in a Bottle you've heard a million times... several others were a big swing and a miss.
Excellent album, really showing the range of Janis Joplin.
Perfectly adequate Elvis, not nearly as powerful as other albums
Like, why... I swear this is the third Bjork album on this list so far... what is it about the greatness of this singer that I'm not understanding? Cause it's definitely going right over my head.
The epitome of mid-90s sound
Great sound, all songs fed well and great variety of instruments in each song. Dancy dance for sure
