I can see why this album was a hit at the time, but also not all of it aged well. The album got pretty repetitive. This isn't my preferred genre so probably wouldn't give it another listen, but wouldn't skip a song if it was in a random playlist.
It has been ages since I've listened to this album and it is amazing how great it still sounds. One of the best debut albums from a band ever. Energetic, fun. Only one skip (I Think About You doesn't do it for me) on this classic. It's amazing Axl can even talk any more after his banshee hollering on this album. I love it but it has got to be awful for the vocal chords.
I'm underwhelmed. There are some real gems (Billion Dollar Babies, Mary Ann, No More Mister Nice Guy) but over all, this isn't the album for me.
His soulful voice on a random Wednesday lifted my spirits. Fantastic album. Yes, Al - I want to stay together.
It's like you got a abstract jazz band, put them in the same room as blues band and told them to play different songs at the same time. I see moments of potential but it is a little too all over the place for me to enjoy this.
Enjoyable album. I know- unpopular opinion - but I love Nineteen hundred and eighty five.
Surprised by how entertaining this was
I was not familiar with Nick Drake and found this surprisingly likable.
For this to be one of the albums I have to listen to before I die, it is not easy to find on some services. However, after work - it is very glam 80s rock - which can be fun when you are in the mood for it.
