Considering all the other albums on this list from 1971, this would probably be in the bottom half. 9 songs and half of them are memorable, overrated album.
One of the darkest, most depressing albums I've listened to. Highly recommend.
Fun, straight-forward rock-n-roll. The number of keyboard solos seem unnecessary.
Seems a bit dated now, but really gets in your head. Mr. Wendal is a great song.
Big step down from Rumours, all of Buckingham’s songs sound too similar.
Instrumentation is interesting, can’t stand Iggy Pop’s droning vocals.
Great album, excellent songwriting, nice mix of serious lyrics with a light tone.
That was strange and surreal. From dark to jaunty and upbeat at the drop of a hat. I’ve never heard anything like this. Great album.
Incredible album from start to finish. Definitely need to listen all the way through, especially the second half. Standouts for me were Jig of Life, Hello Earth, and And Dream of Sheep.
Tracks are repetitive, and way too long. Plenty of rap albums around this time that were way better.
Good old-fashioned jazz.
Was alright. Definitely hear the Stone’s influence.
If I wanted to hear 90’s dance music, I’d just listen to BT.
Not my thing. Too repetitive. Dragged quite a bit.
Nice light album. Nothing really stands out.
Not big on cover albums. Nothing special about this.
Good riffs, good vocals, solid album.
I liked Watergate Blues. Rest was ok.
Brilliant album from start to finish.
Was fine. Sounds like 70’s jazz.
Fun, adrenaline-driven rock. Good music to drink to.
Great songwriting and lyrics, Knopfler’s guitar is beyond imitation.
Overrated album. Okay rapping over some good samples.
Decent album, some interesting lyrics.
Pretty derivative, but great atmosphere.
Good background music.
Different, very eclectic, some really good tracks in there.
Always found Neil Young kind of boring.
Some of the most inventive guitar playing of 80's pop. Unparalleled
An album everyone should hear at least once.
As a metal fan, I never really listened to Sepultura, but I’ve listened to a lot of the thrash that came out of the 80’s, and while this is one of the better ones, it doesn’t really differentiate itself that much in my view. It’s a solid thrash album, but having heard Roots, which in my view is where Sepultura solidly differentiated itself from other thrash bands and hit its creative apex, it’s hard to give this a high review.
Can’t stand The Beach Boys. Schmaltzy, thin-sounding crap.
So many memorable tracks on this album. Brings me back to high school.
I just don't get it.
Definitely a moodier alternative to The Queen is Dead. Some real standout tracks like Rusholme Ruffians and Meat is Murder. All in all, though, not as many memorable hooks and catchy songs as what came after.
Fun, energetic live album.
Real, high-octane party music. Can’t really listen to a lot of it.
Pretty underwhelming. Songs aside from Bad Company are fairly generic.
Pretty good songs, but the digital effects are a little overpowering. Seemed unnecessary at times.
Fun, interesting album to chill out to.
Good bass, but generally just over dramatic nonsense.
Fun old school dance music.
The sheer honesty in this album is incredibly eye-opening. A glimpse into the life of someone who pushed forward with a deck stacked against him. Friend of Mine and Suicidal Thoughts are standouts here. Lighter tracks like Big Poppa and Juicy are juxtaposed by periods of deep introspection that was almost never seen in 80's rap. Maybe the most definitive rap album of the 90's, though I'd like to say that title belongs to Enter the Wu-Tang.
Very typical 50's rock. Not an ounce of fat on this album, I like it.
Starts out good, drags a bit at the end. The Fripp solo is pretty great.
Catchy, simple songs with a bit of quirkiness. Enjoyable experience.
Pretty good. Not particularly distinguishable from a lot of 90's R&B.
Starts off pretty weak, but gets going a few songs in. It's no Songs in the Key of Life, but what is.
Really enjoyable synth-driven pop. Slow Motion is a favorite.
Decent punk album. Starts out strong but falters near the end.
Great guitar parts, definitely a standout of the late 70's.
I know this is supposed to be the first true metal album, but I don't think it's aged particularly well. Maybe 3-4 good songs on here.
Honestly a pretty significant downgrade from Doolittle.
I'd listened to a bit of Nick Cave before (Red Right Hand, Stagger Lee), but not a whole lot. I am a fan now. Really good album.
Not a whole lot of variation, just industrial gloom all the way through. It would be fine if this was a 30-40 minute album, but it’s way too long, and there’s a lot of filler here. Honestly needed a break halfway through.
You'd think something like this wouldn't have aged very well, but I think it holds up even now.
What can you say. A pretty much unparalleled artist. The vocals and instrumentation are top-notch throughout.
Having listened to a lot of this kind of music in high school, I can say this hasn’t particularly aged well.
Overrated guitarist sings corny songs. Can’t even make out a lot of the lyrics because the singing sounds so muffled.
Nice blues music, nothing special.
I find the audience banter annoying, all their 60's songs sound too similar, and when your lead singer is the third best singer in the band, that's usually a bad thing.
Well-written album, great breadth of music. This album showcases what the Beatles are all about, writing catchy and fun songs. But nothing really hits you in a meaningful way.
Sounds like every other boy band album that came out in the 60s.
Nice, short songs full of lush storytelling and solid instrumentation. Can see how this put Willie Nelson on the map.
Decent Irish music. Way too long, a 12 minute finale? Not necessary.
Some good songs, but a good deal of filler. It’s their first album, seems like they were still developing their sound.
Not crazy about this album. Songs all sound fairly similar. Seems like this style was a passing fad.
Genuinely unpleasant to listen to. The songs on their own aren’t very good, add the awful vocals and it’s one of the worst albums I’ve listened to lately.
Starts out pretty tame, sounds like a typical Simon and Garfunkel record, but really takes a turn and delves into a number of different styles and genres. Obviously the catchy riff on Me and Julio stands out, but as a lover of Gypsy Jazz, Hobo's Blues was a surprise, and a very welcome one at that. Then into some real Delta Blues with Paranoia Blues. A real hodgepodge of different songs.
Decent album. The music was a lot more interesting than the lyrics, which I thought were fairly mundane.
Strange, and oddly improvisational-sounding.
Nothing particularly memorable, kind of boring all the way through.
Really interesting dance music. A lot different from the stuff that's out today.
Solid, 70s jazz.
Decent album, some good tracks, but really drags at times.
Boring, sappy love songs. Some interesting parts shine through, like Shiver and Trouble, but the rest is just a slog. Definitely a good thing they shed this style to go in a broader direction.
Better than Paranoid in my opinion. Great opener and closer.
A cap off to the 90’s, this album perfectly encapsulates the raw intensity that epitomized the era. An opener that grabs your attention leads into a collection of songs that are at times aggressive and other times soft and reflective. Standouts are The Mess We’re In with Thom Yorke and the show stopping closer We Float
Solid, compact album. Tight rhythms and interesting guitar parts.
I understand this was a big deal at the time, but the way his music has evolved over the past 20+ years, this early work just comes off as fairly juvenile. Guilty Conscience is still pretty great though.
I remember when this came out, people went crazy over it, Clint Eastwood was playing all the time. Looking at it now, that is probably one of the weakest tracks. There’s so mischievous interesting stuff on here, like Double Bass and M1 A1. The music feels experimental but at the same time nostalgic. I can’t give this a 5, because with the later stuff, especially Demon Days, it’s obvious that Damon Albarn was capable of taking this music so much further.
Boring and schmaltzy. Had a tough time finishing it.
I'm not usually into the humorous, tongue-in-cheek type rap that was popular in the 80's and early 90's, but I think De La Soul did it better than any of the other rap groups that were popular in that time. The skits were funny and the songs are catchy as hell. This is an album that has really stood the test of time. No idea why it isn't on Apple Music.
Damn, what a unique and full-sounding album. Not every song works, but the sheer diversity of instrumentation in a lot of these songs just blew me away. The singing is top-notch and the hooks just take you in, can't stop listening to Living in Another World. Great underrated album.
Novel and unique at the start, but the eccentric compositions with the falsetto vocals are fairly exhausting after a while. Album is near average length, but it feels so much longer because of its relentlessness. Not an album I'd listen to all the way through again, but I'd listen to a song every now and again.
Everything is well-written, but nothing really stands out. Worth a listen.
Definitely felt like a typical Rolling Stones copy at first, but really branched out into some interesting stuff. Nice blend of different genres.
Not into it. Some interesting stuff in there, but largely overshadowed by the grating vocals.
Pretty much the template for thrash metal. The best guitar playing they’ve ever had, with some blistering solo parts by Marty Friedman. I’ve never been big on Dave Mustaine’s singing, but he is at his best here. The guitar parts are intricate and inventive, and at no point does it feel thrown together, all the sections are well thought out, and nothing feels out of place in any of the songs. This was the best Megadeth had ever been.
Decent album, but nothing really on here that hits like Bizarre Love Triangle.
Not really my thing. I feel like this type of music, while new and different at the time, hasn't really aged well.
Solid rap album, has an intensity to it that sets it apart from other politically charged rap albums at the time. Solid closer, but there were a number of tracks that could have been left off of it.
Dumb songs about nothing, but catchy as hell. Decent album overall.
Perfectly fine old country music. Songs are all pretty similar, but the storytelling is top notch.
Really solid album. Everybody knows That Lady and Summer Breeze, but everything else is good, especially the closer on the album. Would listen again.
Some really interesting baselines. Vocals are good, don’t really like the jangly guitar style and tone. Decent album overall.
Nice traditional rock album. Short and quick listen.
Typical for country of that time, nothing special. There’s a reason people like Jennings and Nelson took the country world by storm in the 70’s.
