A fabulous album. Already on my favourite list but always worth a prompt to listen again.
Previously I've only listened to about a minute of Tubular Bells and I can now see why. This is awful stuff. Pretentious drivel... I possibly blame my punk upbringing and some of that stuff was bad. Just never as bad as this...
I had never listened to this album all the way through before. I knew the single 'Marrakesh Express' but nothing else. I found it pleasant and a very chilled out listen. Nice in the background while I worked and the sun was flooding my room. The harmonies are wonderful, even if some of the songs I found fairly forgettable. I'm not sure I'd add it to my personal list of classic albums, but I could definitely put it back on again, maybe on a Summer Sunday morning. I wish I could give half points. It's not a 4 for me but better than a 3...
I can understand the reverence that Tom Waits is held in, but unfortunately as much as I try I just can't get fully into his music. There are flashes on this album that I love, but as a whole piece of work it just doesn't hold me.
A bit dated for my liking but an enjoyable album. Nothing I found I felt like skipping. Don't think I'll return to it soon though.
When drawing the Brit Pop battle lines I stood on the side of the Northern pretenders Oasis. I always felt Blur were a bit of a joke band. Madness for the 90's... Therefore I never took much notice of this album past the odd single. I can appreciate it a bit more now, but still not one of their best moments in my opinion.
This is just awful...
Not really to my taste, though I did enjoyed the bluesy jazz style of some of the album.
Way too Country for me. And I quite like tge genre
I love the rawness of this album. For me it has a dark gritty unpolished feel. The later albums are great but for me this has an anger and urgency that sometimes was produced out of their later, when they became full on Indie heroes. Great stuff...
I like Low, but not in my favourite 3 Bowie albums.
Interesting, but not something i'd but putting on my list.
I just found this a bit nothing, Sunday afternoon drift music. Not sure a soundtrack, especially this soundtrack deserves to be in the list. Air are pleasant enough but they don't exactly blow my mind.
Decent listen by a excellent band.
2 Air albums in 3 days is more than I can take...
Loved this album, a great vibe and almost every track a banger. I will be returning and also trying more of Mr Basie.
Never a fan of the band. A bit disappointing after how amazing Nirvana were.
Another one of those apparently super hip and cool records. I'm obviously not hip and cool because it just didn't do it for me.
The phrase 'American Hardcore Punk' often makes me wince. But this is potentially where it all started and its actually enjoyably raw and innocent.
I remember loving 'Novocaine For The Soul' when I first heard it. I find the rest of the album interesting with a couple of good tracks, but overall a little disappointing after that first hit. I always feel they need winding up a bit as songs tend to just meander and generally don't get anywhere.
Not for me at all...
What else is it possible to say about this album that hasn't already been said? Fantastic on all levels.
I do like Nick Drake, such a lovely voice. I don't think his songs are at all dated, considering the time and way they were recorded, they actually improve with age. Saying that my favourite album of his is Pink Moon.
One of my favourite albums of all time. It had a big effect on me and landed at an important time in my life. Everything was changing and this album became the soundtrack to my life for a while. An absolute classic.
A great voice but not an album I enjoyed that much apart from the title track.
Amazing album. Possibly the greatest live album ever and what a genius. Love this always
Great voice but not a patch on 'What's Going On'
