I liked the middle where music felt like it was going places more. A little too free form in terms of directions it could go for me.
Just not for me
I’m almost giving it a five. It probably is a four, but just like honey is so good. Sucker for anything with a wall of noise layer. I really like that it’s the vocal style of more the the synth heavy stuff but then more guitar heavy musically so it felt more grounded and focused. It felt kind of like two different albums mixed together with some of the punk stuff
Had never heard. I like anything with spoken word aspects.
I liked it less and less with each song as they all sounded the same. If I was more into poetry and just viewed it as a version of that, perhaps would like it more. Really negatively effected my mood for the day with its energy.
I just think I’m not cool enough for it
I’d never actually sat down and listened to an LCD sound system album. I ended up listening to it 3 times and then their next album too. Great as background music, but also a lot more variety to it than I expected.
This is the first one I didn’t really even want to finish. I just didn’t find it to be interesting.
Never heard of them like many. Really enjoyed the energy
Nope. I skipped through it. I’m sure it influenced someone. I’m glad they were better.
So incredible. So sad. Several bangers in here.
I feel like it worked for playing StarCraft to
I’m sure it’s great. I’m just not a jazzy person.
I’m so bored. Why do people like this stuff? How is this exciting?
Having recently listened to the first third of Dark Side of the Moon… I think I probably preferred it musically. But this was more fun. I’m kind of surprised they’re in their mid 30s here. It feels like very early 20s every. Great album with headphones, I feel like this is how it’s meant to be listened to.
2. This is my standard for something that is totally not me but I assume isn’t awful.
I’m sure there will be David Bowie albums here that are a 4 or 5… this just wasn’t one of them. Prefer something more lyrics forward from him.
Gimme all your lovin is an incredible song. The rest is fine. I can’t believe this song was only in two things. I swear it was in bill and teds excellent adventure but soundtrack claims it wasn’t. Must be thinking of the two heads are better than one song
I mean maybe a two but then I looked him up.
Listened to them so much growing up… probably the most played band on classic rock station growing up, 106.5 WSFL, with daily “Get the Led Out” time. Side B is probably a 4.5, but Side A is an 11. Seriously, Is this the best A side of an Album ever? Love an album that comes flying out of the gate… with probably by favorite Led Zeppelin song. But then still has some softer moments, without losing momentum.. It just plays like an album where people Knew exactly what they wanted to do and did that exact thing.
I just really struggle to differentiate hardcore stuff
I wouldn't listen to this all the time, but it was decent background music and it seems like they had something to say here. Definitely not a 4 or 5 because I didn't immediately want to listen to more of their stuff, but also not a 2 for me because I enjoyed getting through it. I wouldn't consider you to be a philistine if you felt otherwise.
Okay, I was fully expecting a Leonard Cohen album repeat where I was bored out of my mind. But no. FIVE STARS. Almost got hit by a car swaying back and forth on my bike. This album had Some killer hits, but also, what life lessons I wish I had heard before. Maybe I’d spend more time yelling at octogenarian neighbors for creating a world where “Anything goes.” Maybe we would have thought twice about having kids if I’d heard the words: “He's washin' dishes and baby clothes He's so ambitious, he even sews But don't forget folks, that's what you get folks…” We’ll never know. All I know is some punk kids are going to give this a two because these days only four letter words count as prose. Anything goes.
Felt like a real period piece of something i was never that into. Probably the most easily forgettable album thus far... outside of anything jazz.
Top notch background music. When Ainsley opens up her bakery, this will be the first album on.
A lot to say. Really fun. It’s something that makes me want to google associated stuff… just not something I’ll likely stick on randomly.
Probably a 3.5 for me. Enjoyed more than I expected. Great background music.
There will be 5 star who albums for me, but this wasn’t one of them. Too much what feels like filler to listen as an album.
That’s a lotta hits, but not sure if I’d ever actually listen to the album again and not just the hits
Probably a two, but I have to offset people pretending they enjoy this boringness. It’s fine as background music as long as you keep it down and forget you’re listening and fall asleep because you’re bored
It’s probably a 4.5, but I’m rounding up on this one due to the cover art. So much to say.
i didn't finish but i dunno i was just not into this
I just don’t like prince. I said it.
I am not the biggest Rolling Stones fan, but love Sympathy for the Devil. Six star song makes a 3 star album a 4. Interview with the Vampire FTW.
It’s fine background music, just not me
It was pretty cool. I could see listening to it again. Just didn’t quite do it for me. Huge spinal tap fan
I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. It’s probably 3.5 for me, but rounding up because for the genre I liked it more. Every song didn’t sound exactly the same which was cool.
I liked this a lot more than the last one — more rock less funkiness. Take me with U was a surprise favorite, but I feel like I would have enjoyed someone else’s version of it more that leaned even more into the “take me with you” and had a larger chorus centered around it — something a Madonna would have done perhaps. But also if life means forever how the fuck is there an after life?
Great finish but lotta meh
I ultimately like Songs in the Key of Life better, but this is still so good. Such a calming voice.
This is almost a 5 for me if you put it in the context of 2001 — a year when Nickleback, Kid Rock, and Creed all and top 25 albums. Being in high school at the time, this was a first sign that music was going to get better.
I really thought I would like this more, but man wanted to rip my hair out at points
ANOTHER ONE!!?!?! I don't think this was necessarily better or worse than the last one, which I gave a two. But this deserves a one. Hopefully they'll look at the low scores and put no kraftwerk on "1001 more albums..."
So people got through that first track? I was in a really good mood til I listened to this.
I really enjoyed this and will likely listen to more of them. Jesus and Mary Chain has been the group I’ve listened to most since hearing it here. This will probably end up number two. Feel like it’s missing that one killer song.
Okay I was expecting a lot worse from something Ryan said he likes
I liked it, on the line between whether it was actually interesting
I know they’re iconic and all. I just didn’t feel super excited about it like I thought I would. Seemed like a live show would be amazing but no song would be like YES THEYRE PLAYING BYE BYE BYE!!
This was weirdly like top 5 most excited I was to listen to going in. Lost a star off the bat for there being no west end girls. I’m rounding up from 3.5 to offset others
I know I’m wrong. I just don’t enjoy it.
No one really likes this
I thought I’d like this a lot lot more
I hadn't listened to this one all the way through before. I own Little Creatures and much preferred this within the second tier popularity Talking Heads albums. It's probably less innovative than some others... But it felt less like riding a wave in a bunch of different directions, stopping and going. More grounded in some way. This felt like maybe the easiest background music talking heads album, and probably the easiest to listen to -- i could see myself having this one in background in the way I have Darklands in the background a lot right now. Wish it had at least 1-2 more hits on it.
Nothing objectionable. Instantly forgettable.
Never actively listened to her before other than like the 19 and 23 albums. Seriously thought, amazing voice, just can’t imagine seeking out
It felt like a worse version of a lot of similar bands, but in general in my wheelhouse.
Some legit hits. But felt like a lot of low points
I went into this one cold. I may have heard something from it before, but I don’t think so. Really appreciated what felt like experimentation and creativity with restraint — every song had a spine of some sort. A hook/refrain/chorus that you were excited for it to get back to. Felt like someone with a degree in musical theory, but I say that as someone with nothing close to a degree in musical theory.m Also enjoyed that the lyrics had something to say, the use of spoken word, degree to which a lot of it seemed to be a subversion of something that initially seemed positive, etc.
