First album on this list! Enjoyed hearing the guitars at different spots in the soundstage and being able to tell exactly where and how they interlocked. Sister Morphine is the standout for me.
Songwriting was interesting but not quite the range I was looking for.
not my usual cup of tea but they really said “land back” and i respect that
forever a slut for paul simon
sludgy guitar rock was nice but nothing special— the more experimental electronic bits take it from a 3 to a 4 for me
initially i was like “men yelling over weird guitars. 2” but then i found out they were one of the first to do it in this way?
literal king of pop
solid moody man music
quality power ballad guitar stuff here
HSB and the guitars in general are undeniable but i think maybe i just don’t like grunge that much???
standout: Cheapskate otherwise not super exciting?
spark that bled was cool. overall not super into this one though
a few real bangers here
so much better than it has any business being
xylophone goes CRAZY here!!!!
i mean come on
not my thing but i respect the artistry
could not deal with the harmonica on this
points for ambition. probably won’t listen again for awhile though
I continue to be a slut for a tight harmony
I liked this way more than I thought I would—crazy good guitar work especially. I don’t know how widely sampled this was, but a few parts called to mind some more recent artists.
better than i remembered it. definitely gonna come back to this again and again
PG was apparently worried the long instrumentals would get boring, I think the long wacky lyrics are more of a concern. but everything else here is undeniable genius
once again good but not my thing
like springsteen with better guitar and worse writing
i’d do coke to this
no live recorded audience has ever been hornier
i can see why ppl like this but nothing really stuck out here
sexiest album ever made
one of those albums that feels kind of meh but only because everyone else is standing on his shoulders
