I’ve listened to this album many times. I think everyone has a Beatles phase and this was one that perplexed me. I never really understood why this album is held in such high regard.
It was like the most typical New Wave album ever. Lots of keyboard synth with the typical singing voice. I’ve never heard of him before but it was cool to read up on the history of him and his influence.
This was huge when I was in high school! Speakerboxx was such a great rap album and Love Below was an amazing alt rap album. It’s amazing that they created two side by sides. Being a double album it’s very long and not every song is a banger but this is still my have outkast album.
Summerbreeze is such a great song. I didn't know they had a cover of it. The whole album is great and I'm glad to have listened to it. Who's The Lady is the obvious song from the album. I'll definitely come back to this album and listen to more of their discography.
I wanted to be a big Who fan back in college. These days I'm just okay with liking their hits. And they've got some great hits. I've just never really been a big fan of Roger Daltrey's voice.
Not the biggest fan. The hits are the stand outs. Didn’t love the heavy synth. I’m surprised Hayley Williams doesn’t have her as an influence on Wikipedia.
Right at the gate you know what kind of album this is going to be. I’ve never listened to Iron Maiden. And the biggest revelation to me is how xenoblade chronicles battle music sounds soo similar to the frenetic high energy guitar solos. Overall I liked it more than I thought I would. I'd consider listen to their top hits after this album.
It was okay. I was hoping for more.
I normally like funk but I didn’t really love this album.
I've only ever listened to My Aim Is True, which is a great album. This just feels like an even better album. From what I read, My Aim Is True was solely Elvis Costello. When the Attractions entered the picture, it really changed the game of what Elvis Costello could create. This had me go down the rabbit hole of reading about Backing Bands, and it totally makes sense how the backing band can open up opportunities for the otherwise solo artist.
This is a great album. This has all the hits. This also led me to finally listen to Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, since he essentially wrote Black Magic Woman. This is the definitive starting ground for Santana's discography and a lot of jam bands from the era.
At first I was liking what I was hearing. But as it goes on, it's just too stereotypical 90s alt band. Not unlike bands like Super Chunk or Pixies, it eventually wears itself out after a few listens. It's literally just power chords playing open for the entirety of the album, and some disjointed chords to be edgy. Maybe in the 90s this was great. But after the 90s Grunge, 2000s alt / indie / emo era, this is just very dated. Leaves me thinking "So What?"
CCR is the most overrated band of this era. I don’t dislike the band’s hits but I also don’t turn it on. When it’s on the radio or on any list, I skip we. I’m college i really liked their music but at some point I stopped liking their music. There’s just something about John Fogerty’s voice that annoys me so much.
I think I would put this on once in awhile. I was listening to this while putting together a computer workstation and it was really good background music.
Turn it on. It was ...
What happens when you can't play guitar? Well this apparently and most punk bands, so you can sound edgy and raw. I like this sound on a lot of emo albums.
