Loved it. Sonically thick, lush sounds throughout, easily danceable and relistenable. Sounded like the precursor to Oasis' Wall of Sound.
I get why other people like Neil Young. And if I started writing music, it'd probably sound a lot like Neil Young. And it's not bad! But it's catch-and-release fishing. Hooks are good, but the songs meander, solos don't have direction, and they lose me 3 minutes into a ten minute(!) song.
Just a beautiful, funky album. Nothing more to say, it can't be improved.
This'll hit a whole lot better in October... weird spooky vibes. Not sure if I really HAD to hear this before I died, but whatevs. Okay it's getting more normal (Hang Down Your Head and Time) NEVERMIND WE BACK This isn't a bad album at all. I like the more regular songs. As a whole album, it doesn't resonate with me though, and I don't imagine I'll revisit it a whole lot in the future.
God this album is so consistently good. 5/5 no notes.
It's a nice album! Nothing blew me away, but it was pleasant to listen to. I don't think I'll come back to it a lot, but if it was already playing I wouldn't mind.
It’s fine. Jane’s Addiction never does anything for me, something about their sound gets on my nerve. Except for Mountain Song. Absolutely sick.
God, this album's sick. The interludes drag a little, and I could personally do without every song from Toilet Tisha onward, but it's so solid otherwise. Such a deep and complex piece of work, I'm really glad I got to revisit it for this.
I like it! A really solid first album, but nothing more than that for me. I wouldn't skip any of these songs if they showed up on shuffle, but I'm not sure I'll be seeking them out anytime soon either.
Honestly, it's a little all over the place. Just a bunch of blues riffs, a drinking song (Mother's Lament), and none of them are particularly catching except Sunshine. Clapton sucks as a human. His music and blues jams are still overrated.
I get some Siamese Dream vibes, self-title Foo Fighters as well. Vocals sound like Rivers Cuomo out of breath. That's not a compliment. It feels like something I could've created on my own. I guess that's the point though.
It's like a musical weighted blanket.
Yo, this album's weird. I have no idea why it's famous or needs to be listened to (other than being a good Byrds album), but I like it!
Beautiful. The groaning is a little weird, but it's so obvious he's in a deeply personal groove that it's hard not to get sucked into the composition.
THIS IS WHERE POOR LENO CAME FROM my heart is happy Pretty fun album! Interesting melodies and synth beats, kinda reminds me of Entroducing and early Daft Punk (Homework/Discovery). 4/5 cause it brought me back to SSX3. Miss that game.
Yeah, this ain't it, chief.
Little on the nose, getting this the day after the Queen's passing... It's a nice album, but I've never been a huge fan of The Smiths. Mostly has to do with Morrissey's voice and crooning, it just doesn't do a lot for me. Still a good album though!
Awesome album, really enjoyable. I only recognized L.A., but sonically it flows well and there wasn't a bad song in it. Great vignette of early 2000's indie music.
It’s… fine, I guess. There’s not a lot here that catches my attention. The lyrics aren’t that deep, the hooks are present but not earworms. It’s fine. Not great, not terrible.
Classics, enjoyable, but personally I definitely have to be in the right mood to seek it out.
Really great, enjoyable psych rock. I’d never heard of this but would absolutely revisit it.
Solid country classics. Not my jam, but very listenable.
Cheers to Neil for making an album I enjoy. Didn't think that was possible. His vocal performance conveys the trauma he's dealing with really well. I'd absolutely listen to this regularly, or at least when I'm working through my own stuff. This gives me hope I'll find other albums of his to enjoy. Much better than whatever other album of his I listened to.
This is just awesome, incredible rhythms and melodies, an amazing sound and beautifully cohesive. I could listen to Let's Start on repeat.
I've definitely got a soft spot for electronic music like this, that comes straight from early-2000's video game soundtracks. I'd never listen to this based on the cover art. The music is pretty good. If I was in the right mood I'd definitely listen to it more.
Pretty solid hardcore! It's fun listening to records like this and noticing how it's sounds matriculated into other, more mainstream albums I've heard.
Really solid R&B, but I'm not a huge fan. Not sure if I just wasn't in the right mood or what, but this one didn't do it for me. Still good though!
Why had I never listened to this?? Great album, easy and fun to listen to. Apparently I'd never really listened to Iggy Pop, and I have no idea why.
It's... fine? Not too interesting, quite frankly. I don't remember anything about it, and I listened to it maybe four hours ago? Strange how that works.
It sounds like every other AC/DC record, but damn does it sound good.
Solid hip hop, not a bad track on the album really. Hard to say more, other than that it’s enjoyable.
Born in the U.S.A. (the song) is overrated. Bruce, in general, is overrated. Now that that's out of the way, I'm pleasantly surprised with this album. It's better than I previously remembered, and while it certainly isn't groundbreaking or original, it's easy to listen to. The deep cuts are better than the hits
A surprise album that I didn’t expect much from, but was packed with nuance and thoughtfully done throughout. Water with the Wine was my standout.
One of a couple perfect jazz/funk records. Could loop it endlessly without issue.
Fantastic. Simple, effective, really enjoyable.
I loved it. Short, loopable, haunting, and beautiful. The album art is weird but I don't even care, I'm gonna be listening to this one a lot, and for a while.
That was more fun than I thought it'd be. Simple, enjoyable country. Holy hell k.d. has pipes.
I swear to god this was playing over the airport intercom last month. Good shit!
It's not perfection, but it's pretty damn close.
YES GRUNGE THANK GOD i was beginning to lose hope. I adore this album, and basically all of Screaming Trees. Just the perfect music for me, and Lanegan is a fantastic singer for the music they produced.
Awesome, awesome jazz record. Way more enjoyable than I was expecting it to be.
Really solid indie album. Foreground is living in my head at the moment and it refuses to budge, but the rest wasn't extremely memorable to me for whatever reason. Still enjoyed it though.
Walk On the Wild Side always freaks me out a bit for some reason, but within the album and with a little more context it makes more sense. Solid album from top to bottom, and really enjoyable.
Is it cheesy 90's pop? Absolutely. Honestly the second half is pretty forgettable, and it's hard to listen to without thinking of Britney's mistreatment at the hands of, everyone, basically. Still a great 90's pop album.
Love this album. I'm absolutely biased, since I was a kid when this released and Linkin Park was the first CD I owned, but this was an awesome nostalgia trip.
Why's Nick Cave sound like a poor man's Lou Reed? The first two songs on this album had me really excited, they were deep and thoughtful and the sound was truly distinct. And then, it just kept going, and going, and going. There's absolutely no way this album is less than two hours. It dragged endlessly, and I can't explain why I listened to it's entirety.
Okay, gotta say it; I don't get the hype. It's a good album! Every song sounds great, but the songs themselves just aren't that interesting, in lyrical or musical depth. I'm sure I'm missing something here, since this is supposed to be one of the best albums ever. Maybe it's the historical context? Cultural significance? Not sure, but I expected this album to be much, much better than it was.
