Smokers DelightNightmares On Wax
More ‘prog rock’ than I would have expected and pretty polished for a first solo album, reflecting years of prior work with Genesis. Insightful lyrics re: the human condition that are typical of his other work. Big vibe change between the pop single and the other tracks - sound like different albums.
THE prog rock album
Never was a big fan of The Beach Boys but can see why this album shows up on everyone’s ’must listen’ list after a couple of plays - interesting alt. sounds and cutting lyrics.
Hearing music that must have influenced Black Keys. But didn’t often catch my ear.
… were it for one twangy song… A great 60’s soundtrack heralding the arrival of the counter culture.
Perfect. Every cut is good and the variety of tracks is utter vibe candy.
Sounding more ‘big band’ than ‘country’ to my ears, enjoyed this more than I thought I would.
All Metallica should be played this way! Starts out with Good, Bad & Ugly then shortly heads into Master of Puppets - feels like an anthem album for (some of) the times.
Later versions of this sound appeal to me more.
A prog rock staple - something new around every corner.
Digging the anti-establishment, anti-corporate-entertainment commentary.
Love it! Lots of prog rock notes with a delish mix of hooks and weirdness.
Missing the energy of the live album but fun to here the tunes in their original form.
Getting strong notes of Ours - interesting songs to sing with deep beats and sounds - yeah
A good listen even if I can’t understand a word.
Music isn’t catching me
Occasional jams make for a nice listen.
Getting some notes of Flaming Lips - good hard rock vibes.
One of my favs
buzzy voice - chipmunk?!
Novel and interesting lyrics, sounds and voices
I need to brush up on my french!
Not bad actually
Good for the zone
Interesting stuff - a little early U2, some Echo & BunnyM, some psychedelic rock.
Always room for more Tom Waits
High school, beach, days & nights.
Very chillax (!) with one head banger track (?)
Love this! Gets me moving every time.
Good memories - prefer the newer stuff
