Yeah, this is pretty great. What a great band. Probably a lot of people think Rod Stewart is kind of cheesy from his 80s power-ballad output. This shows he is one of the great rock vocalists. Also from a time when records meant you had 8 great songs and no room for filler. (If I was able to type something for Siamese Dream, that was my only complaint). Classic!
I actually have this in my collection. This is one of those that I really like, if I am in the right mood. It's definitely a little long and not a lot of variety. But a lot of fun and Fairytale of New York is still great.
From the services available, I could only get one song and not the whole album. Metallica seems like a band I should like, but they have never connected with me. I feel like listening to the one song available I have basically heard every Metallica song. In summary, meh.
This is a weird album to include on this list. I love Radiohead but this is in the bottom grouping rating their albums. I remember at the time thinking this was more of a return to straight songs after the Kid A/Amnesiac experimental albums, but listening to it again it seems like an extension of those records. It's hard not to feel like all these tracks are just meandering experiments not really going anywhere. I remember listening to this a bit when it came out and then never really going back to it. Now I remember why.
I have already heard this a million times. Anyone who has never heard this before will probably rate it a 1, but back in 1986 this sounded like nothing I had ever heard before. My friends as I were obsessed with this album. Some hard bands were noisy, but this was just noise as music. But under the noise, there are genuine pop songs and hooks buried in there. This is the record all the showgazing bands of the 90s cited as an influence. In short, a masterpiece.
