I was already going to give this a 1 because I hated it so much, but the last song really put it over the top. Both “I want your sex” songs were so creepy.
Interesting lyrics and good band but just can’t stand his voice and harmonica playing
Great sounds, good songwriting. Great mixing and arrangements.
Really sick one. Cool songs and vibe. Dig the surfy guitars on skidmarks
How many Beatles albums are going to be on this list? This ones pretty good for a Beatles album Their voices are really annoying (not as bad as Dylan) Unpopular opinion-I do not like Norwegian wood Ooh la las on track 3 are the same as school of rock song lol In my life is a good song Despite rating I prefer this to bob dylan
Really loved this album. I have no idea what they’re singing about but the grooves and players are so sick and the arranging is great. The drums and guitar really remind me of early chess blues and junior kimbrough. Al Hasidic terei - cool triple groove Sekou oumarou- sweet guitars Ai tchere bele- reaaally sick guitar grooves
I like daft punk, but not this album. I know it’s their first so it’s gotta make the list, but I think the later stuff (discovery and human after all) is more creative and interesting. I’m typically not excited by electronic/loop based music, but as far as that stuff goes they are probably the best. Really found myself struggling to make it to the end of this one I truly hate anything with a house music feel (Phoenix) There are a couple quintessential daft punk moments (da funk)
I really hate the tones of this album, theres so much high pitched staticky awful noise. The guitars make me want to die. I’m on track two and I want to pull out all my hair. This whole style and vibe of music just doesn’t do it for me. So boring.
I wouldn’t listen to this again, but they put a ton of effort into these arrangements and there’s a lot of interesting stuff going on. There are some crazy synths and cool guitar moments, but the singing is a little underwhelming.
What is there really to say? Some of the best riffs and grooves of all time Track 1 the kick drum thing and guitar break and guitar scratch stuff at the end Guitar noise on settle for nothing is awesome Bullet in your head is so sick, I’ve been sleepin on that one Know your enemy has such a cool guitar intro, Tom morello is the shit Fistful of steel intro is one of the sickest things I’ve ever heard
Kind of feels like a soundtrack. Especially side 2 Art decade has some wild futuristic science-y sounds Gated snare on new career sounds crazy Haven’t read reviews yet but I bet this was negatively reviewed when it was released and positively reviewed in hindsight.
I dig the New York monologue at the top This is gonna be a long one, it’s only track 2 and I’m bored as hell 007? Lol Maybe I’m missing something but I’m not sure how this one made the list
Really similar to the smiths, not bad I kinda liked it but had trouble staying interested
I like the slow tempo and surfy guitars on big black car. Feels like heroine kinda. Acoustic sounds nice on femme fatale Cool bass playing on this tune also I like the songwriting, arranging and instrument sounds on this album. Singing isn’t blowing me away but it’s not awful. Strings are kinda cool Nice sounding reverb on night time Oboe?? Didn’t see that coming I feel like this album is getting increasingly orchestral Oh it’s rock n roll again (til the end of the day) A couple of these songs aren’t available on Spotify
Lol what a coincidence!! The queen is dead! Decent album but the smiths just annoy the hell out of me for some reason. So overrated in my opinion. Giving it a 2 cause there is definitely worse music on this list
This is actually a pretty great album (besides yellow submarine) the songwriting is great Listened on an original mono pressing and noticed a bunch of stuff that I haven’t noticed before on the remasters/digital versions. Taxman and I want to tell you are my favorites, both Harrisons. I guess he’s my fav They sound good on the parlor music type McCartney songs, but it is tough listening to them play rock n roll because they are always just holding on for dear life with the feel/groove
Some good time country songs but the 80’s digital country tones just aren’t the same as the old timey stuff twangy guitars are happening but they sound so thin and lame compared to George Jones records Little rock n roller is a truly horrible song. Sounds like something we would have to play at a wedding Really not digging the twinkly 80’s piano on hillbilly highway Any album with pedal steel is gonna get a decent rating at least. But man everything sounds so bright and digital. I miss the warmth of old 60s country. Surprised but I actually kinda like the synths sounding guitar on fearless heart Really like the last track. Singing is great, mandolin is great
Really cool album, very interesting songwriting. Weird and emotional. Not sure if I’ll revisit this album or not but super well made album
Really weird interesting goofy fun album. Only songs I knew were rock lobster and love shack. Dig the guitar tones and surfy vibe His singing is kinda annoying but totally works for the songs If it were only the gal singer I probably would listen to this more
Cool album! I usually don’t like electronic/dance music much because the tones are too sterile and the songwriting is lazy, but I thought this album was really thoughtful and creative and the tones were nice and warm and sounded like the 70s. Cool synths and drum machines.
Wow, what a great album. Probably my fav radiohead album. Feels a little more like rock n roll than their other stuff, but still uses dynamics well. So many cool details and nuances in all these songs, down to every little guitar effect and layer By far my fav album on this list so far
I really wish I could hear this in context, it’s hard not to listen with modern ears. In 1970 this was probably great but it just sounds so generic to me. The keyboardist sounds very educated It’s hard not to compare any 70’s rock to zeppelin. I’m sure I’m gonna say that a hundred more times over the course of this activity. Child in time hits remind me of Achilles last stand. Really wild journey of a song. I love the insane ending. It sounds like they spliced the final hit. Organs are sick, but the organ-heavy rock sounds so generic and dad-rock. ( granted they were probably some of the first to do it)
Pretty cool and vibe you. I’ve only heard their live in NYC record and I remember liking that one. Off the bat I thought i was gonna like it a lot but by the end I kind of lost interest 3.5
4.7 I love this album. So many great sounds and layers on here. Chaos solo at end of where it’s at is so great Love the steel in sissyneck Great hi hat in readymade Girl from ipanema at the end of readymade?? Lol 😂 Guitar Noise in high 5 so sick, and is that a cuica?? Classic 90s drum sound Classic 90s vocal sound (cake, mike doughty)
good jazz album. Take five and blue rondo are classics. I love Paul desmonds playing, they get into some cool grooves 3.5
If this record was on at ethyls or rocka rolla, I’d be into it. Great background music for a Brooklyn bar. I usually get bored by anything in this genre and this was maybe a little bit more interesting than some. I want to like punk more than I do. Just kinda sounds like mediocre rock n roll
I was pretty bored by the end of this record There are some nice tones and layering and production but ultimately the songwriting is not very interesting and if you’re writing riff-based songs I think you need stronger riffs 2.5
Not sure why this is on here. There’s nothing glaringly awful about this album but it just sounds like stock 70s music to me. I was pretty bored by the end of this one
Really did not enjoy this one. 1.5 bc jimmy page is on track one, but I’m not a fan of anything mickie most produced. Almost every song is about King Arthur or something and they all sound like medieval folk songs. Too much harpsichord for my taste
I love the way Wilco pairs noise with simple folky songwriting. I love Jeff tweedy’s voice and songwriting, this album is right up there with YHF for me.
I think this would be okay background bar music, but I didn’t really enjoy actively listening to it. Not super interesting or memorable but some semi-creative moments and nice guitar feedback. 2.5
Nothing memorable about this album to me. Also apparently the “songwriter” got sued for not giving credit to the actual songwriters and musicians. Lame.
Amazing. Aretha is the best and everything she did with the muscle schoals boys is incredible. Every song is a classic. On the bonus version of chain of fools the baritone guitar is so badass
Killer band!! Loved this one. the strings remind me of chic.
Love this record! David Byrnes has such an interesting approach to songwriting and art, and I’m a fan of the stuff he did with Brian Eno. I like the afrobeat inspired vibe on this record, some really interesting guitar parts.
I was already going to give this a 1 because I hated it so much, but the last song really put it over the top. Both “I want your sex” songs were so creepy.
I could never listen to this again. Really not digging the vibrato, especially in bird girl
Super generic super forgettable
Funny bird is a crazy journey. Delta sun bottleneck stomp sounds like bron-y-aur stomp.
Some ok moments but overall what a drag
Some of these songs are super nostalgic for me, like friend of the devil and truckin. Brokedown palace is cool. I think they write some great songs but the performance is not exciting to me. The vocals are not good
No serious complaints but again not sure why this made the list. Not very excited by anything on this record
The Beach Boys are always such a good time. I love the Phil specter/wrecking crew vibe on this record, the vocals are incredible and the arrangements/instrumentation are so cool.
Objectively I think this is a great album. Champagne supernova is a great song. I would never choose to put this album on but I think it’s really well done and some interesting songwriting.
This is the first music I have a conscious memory of hearing, and I listened to this record pretty much everyday between the ages of 3-10. I can’t even begin to describe how important this record is to me. I could go on and on but this record is absolutely legendary and one of the most important things to ever happen to rock n roll. 10/5
Wasn’t super familiar with this whole album but there are some legendary songs on here. Her playing, singing and songwriting are top tier, she is truly unique and such an important part of American musical history.
I can’t stand music like this. The harmony and arrangements are so convoluted just for the sake of dick-swinging and maybe to mask the shitty songwriting. It tries to be “funky” but without an ounce of soul or feeling. The vocals and lyrics are horrible. Every song was worse than the last. I hope I never have to hear this again.
I’m a fan of Steve winwood, I listened to a lot of traffic and blind faith growing up. He has a great voice/feel and is a great player. There were some really good moments on this album. I enjoyed listening but it wasn’t super memorable for me and idk if I’d listen again
So weird and so interesting. I always appreciate records like this, it’s so wild and unpredictable and keeps you engaged the whole time. The songwriting/production and vocals are strange and unique. Not sure I’ll be listening to this again anytime soon but this was by far one of the most unique and intricate albums on this list so far.
This album was cool, I’ve kind of slept on Elvis Costello. The bass playing is pretty sick on this
Some cool guitar noise and that’s about the only thing I enjoyed about this. The lack of syncopation (or any rhythm other than constant straight 8ths) was just killing me by the end of this record My friend goo is is so stupid lol 1.7
The harmonies are incredible and the playing is great. Nothing wrong with this record at all but I think you kinda get the picture after the first song or two. These guys are great but if I’m gonna listen to white guy harmonies I think I’d prefer the everly brothers. 2-3 idk
I love everything about this record. His voice is amazing, al Jackson’s drumming is great, the horns are so tight and the organ is sweet. And the way it’s recorded is just so warm and beautiful. The only critique I could think of is that the lyrics maybe aren’t the most interesting but who cares!! This record vibes like no other
Kinda cool album but they kinda lost me. The singing/songwriting isn’t super interesting or memorable to me. Love the drums on the first track, buggin, waiting for a Superman, Vocals really remind me of Ryan Adams on spark that bled.
The king! This record sounds so good, it was recorded in RCA studio B in nashville, everything that comes out of that room sounds amazing. I love the reverb on the vocals and the minimalist arrangement on fever. 4.9 because I like the earlier Elvis best
I loved The Who when I was a kid so it’s tough to rate, but if I’m gonna listen to British rock it’s gonna be Led Zeppelin or the stones. Some of these songs are nostalgic and cool. Not a big fan of the bo diddley cover.
Never heard this record and surprised it’s on this list considering the rest of her career/discography. I’ve never been a huge fan of her voice, but I like some things she’s done, like grievous angel and some of the other stuff with gram parsons. Some of her live stuff is kind of cool. Bruce Springsteen and his wife sing backup on track 4 of this record. 2.7? I wouldn’t listen again
What a bizarre record. if they left out all the vocals I would give this a higher rating, but they’re so weird and bad it ruins the droney noise vibe, which actually could be kind of cool. I honestly thought I was going to have a worse time listening to this than I did. There are some cool noises and I kind of liked the piano piece. 1.7
Fun album, but everything in this album is recycled. All the best moments IMO are either samples or covers (bob marley, Roberta flack etc.) some of the skits are funny and the hold em fold em sample in cowboys is hilarious.
So great, Nile and Bernard are legends and all the players are top notch. The strings are iconic. 4.5 cause I don’t love the ballads and I think there are better chic records
These songs all sounded like sloppy scratch demos to me, the playing is terrible and nobody took the time or effort to produce or write parts. All the guitar is just power chords and the drumming sucks and I don’t think the songwriting is interesting enough to cover that up
This album was bizarre and cool, I like the loud guitar noise. The last song’s guitar parts are so unhinged. Washer and the last song are my favorite I think. I really enjoyed it but not sure if I’ll listen to it again. 3.5 I think?
I know she is a good songwriter and this record is very masterfully done but I really wasn’t moved or excited by anything on this. It’s hard for me to get excited about any music that sounds this polished.
A classic. Breakdown is my fav TP song
One of my favs! Charlie byrds playing is really cool on this. Probably my fav of the 60’s American bossa crossover. A perfect record!
More stock British rock, not really into it
What a cool record. It just got better and better. Fav song was leaving the table, I love the guitar in that one. Sounds like ry cooder. Huge fan of the string outro. I love when records have themes like that. 4.7
Accidentally wrote this review under GZA, so here is my GZA review: I enjoyed the presentation of this album. I like how a lot of hip hop albums have these little interludes, it makes it feel truly like an album as opposed to a bunch of songs. That being said, it’s really hard for me to stay interested in songs when they’re loop/sample based. I know it’s all about the lyrics but I just automatically check out when the production is like that. I will say that for a hip hill album the production was a little more interesting than average and some of the chopped grooves were kind of cool. But ultimately it all just feels like background music to me. 2.7
I tried twice to get through this and failed. Maybe not the worst band I’ve ever heard but definitely in the running. 0/5
I have a hard time rating this one. The playing and arrangements are so cool. I love all the guitars on this record and jacos playing is beautiful. I have a lot of respect for Joni but there’s something about her voice that I never really got into. The spoken word kind of poetry singing doesn’t really do it for me.
I listened to the 80’s one first and it was okay, but I was a little bored by the end. The 60’s one I really liked! Some really cool songwriting and arrangements. I like the vibe of the whole album and I would definitely listen again
I think I actually liked this one more than hejira. The songwriting I thought was a little more interesting, and I like that there’s more singing and less of the spoken word stuff. Still not a huge fan of her lyricism. Apparently the jungle line is the first commercially released song with samples used.
His playing is so incredible, this might be one of the best solo albums out there. To make a solo album this interesting and capturing is pretty impressive. His vocalizations are hilarious and I laughed out loud in a couple of spots. 4.5
Wow I can’t believe how different his voice sounds from the other record. I like You Want it Darker better. The lyrics are somewhat interesting but I wasn’t really excited about anything else on this record.
Really enjoyed listening to this. The lyrics are hilarious and I loved all the jazz samples. Not sure if I’ll listen again but really fun record
House music is a little torturous to me. In my personal level of hell there would be house music playing constantly. 1.4because it’s marginally more interesting than some house music I’ve heard, but there’s no way I’m gonna make it through two hours of this album
I don’t know this record as well as some of their others, but I’ll definitely be coming back to this one. Quintessential Radiohead, amazing songwriting and really interesting arrangements.
Fav song was by the time I get to Arizona, cool fuzzed out riff and choir sample. I don’t wanna be your n*** had a sort of cool guitar sample. Some kind of cool production on this album but a lot of the songs sounded the same and it was kind of repetitive/forgettable. Probably won’t listen again
This is a great soundtrack for being on the subway. I’m not sure I would listen to this again intentionally but I’m glad it exists and I had a fun listening to it. It’s so grimy and industrial sounding
Hotel California is a perfect song, knocked it out of the park with that one. I did not really enjoy the rest of the album. The ballads were just excruciating. All the singing/playing/production is top notch, perfectly done, but at times it’s a little too easy-listening for me.
Truly a masterpiece. the production and arrangements are so great on this record. Lindsey buckingham is kind of a maniac but his songs have some cool percussion and weirdness. I definitely like the nix/mcvie songs better, they’re so vibey and beautiful.
This is like the espolon of rock. It’s definitely better than the rail, but it still feels pretty generic a lot of the time. Some of the songs are iconic and interesting, but at the end of the day it’s kind of derivative and there’s so much guitar rock I’d rather listen to
This is such a perfect 90s album. So many iconic songs. I love the classic 90s drums sound and all the guitar parts and tones. The songwriting is so great and the arrangements are really interesting. The tonal center changes in head over feet are so cool. Favorite moment was guitar noise in right through you
Really weird and creative album. Not something I’d listen to but interesting. Some of the more dramatic moments almost remind me of queen. Asylum is like queen meets Pink Floyd.
I almost love this record. I love the tones and production. The reverb on the vocals sounds amazing and the guitars sound so good. The arrangements seem a little lacking but still achieves a cool vibe. Sometimes I love his voice and sometimes it really bothers at me. Everybody’s talking is a great tune, I thought Harry Nilsson wrote it
This sounds like nothing. There is nothing remotely interesting about this record to me. Every song sounds the same. The only silver lining is that all the songs are like a minute long.
Ten years ago I would’ve loved this record, the players are top tier, grooves are tight and the production is fantastic. It’s flawlessly executed but it feels very safe and generic; it never really feels like they are taking any chances or reaching for anything.
Hard to rate a Christmas album but I used to really like this one. Really gotta separate art from artist here, but his arrangements and sound are pretty amazing.
Reading down a list of samples on this albums and it’s like all my favorite stuff. would rather listen to a playlist of their samples, Bc honestly their voices are so obnoxious it was hard to listen to an hour.
Boring, tired, uninspired. Nobody is playing like they want to be there. Really boring songs. Don’t think I’m gonna make it all 93 minutes. 1.5
This is such a great record! All the grooves are so tight but they still feel raw. Drums and guitars sound awesome, love the fuzzed out Isley tone. A lot of great funk records have cheesy stupid ballads, but even the ballads are great on this one!
Some classic hits. Never heard the intro to bootylicious before. Honestly though all these songs sound exactly the same to me. Apart from the nostalgia I personally really don’t like this style/era of production. Everything sounds so squashed and sterile and digital. The percussion loops/samples are so robotic and the vocals are so processed there’s just barely any human aspect to this music. I know I’m not the target audience for this but I’m just not interested or excited about anything in these recordings. 2.5
Really enjoyed listening, super cool beats/samples, hooks and arrangements. Love the Yukimi feature on pressure.
So cheesy, so ridiculous, so over the top. Pretty impressive amount of hits for a debut record. Needless to say pretty sick guitars.
Some ok moments but very forgettable
Kind of repetitive but cool, I like the guitar vibe on a rap record. I think it’s actually Rick Rubin playing guitar on the title track. Raisin hell and you be illin are my favs. 3.7
Wow this is awesome! Never heard this before but 5 stars for the beautiful guitar voicings. Definitely coming back to this one.
So much I could say. A perfect record. Every song is a masterpiece. This was one of the first records that made me want to play music.
Sounds like the soundtrack for a 90s action movie. Kinda cool, kinda boring. 2.5
So much fun to listen to. Louis prima is awesome and hilarious and the band is super swinging. Makes me want to get wine drunk and make pasta.
Hell yeah. Iconic guitar record. Eddie’s shredding is obviously the highlight but he’s also an underrated rhythm player.
Very organ heavy. The drums are cool on terminator. This was maybe really awesome in 1968. Ina gadda is a good riff. Idk. 3?
More interesting than I thought it would be. Still not very interesting.
Wow I had a lot of fun listening to this. not sure if/when I’ll come back to it but so crazy. I never really got into rush; I usually don’t get too excited about super math-y music but this one is really cool. love all the noise. YYZ totally unhinged, I loved the shattering sound whatever that is. Limelight is a really cool tune too, guitar tone is awesome!! It’s like Led Zeppelin if you replace all the magic with science and math. Every song is an epic journey
I don’t think krautrock is for me. Maybe this album is important somehow but i found it incredibly boring
This is great! I think they took kind of a chance making this record, it’s way different and much darker than their other poppy motown hits and ballads.
I LOVE this album. There is another really great BVSC record with this Cuban singer Ibrahim ferrar. Mambo Sinuendo is another great ry cooder album kind of in this vibe.
His voice is so incredible and what a killer band. This would’ve been such a fun show.
Just finished listening and I can’t recall a single melody, or really anything remotely interesting about this record. The drums and synth pads and sequencers are so relentlessly mind numbing.
Didn’t finish it. it wasn’t that bad but i couldn’t do an hour of that
The samples are kind of funny and weird, but that’s the best thing I can say about it. Punk music is super boring to me. When the songwriting, performance, and production are all done at such a low level it’s really hard to find anything to be excited about
I’m only rating the original release, not the 7 cover tracks at the end I didn’t really get into it for the first half, but side B I really enjoyed! Doctor boogie has a really sick groove Randy newman’s version of “have you seen my baby” is a trillion times better Cool slapback vocals on evil hearted Ada, very elvis-y cool slide blues and saloon piano on 32-20 Whiskey woman is fun, chorus reminds me of Neil young helpless
I didn’t really enjoy this music, but i think it’s a thoughtfully made record. Interesting compositions and orchestration, and I like the intro and outro. Not really into the vocals. Favorite song was another pearl, Really cool drums and guitar and a nice groove.
Really cool concept record. Great songwriting and storytelling, I love how he references earlier lyrics later in the record. I love the whole outlaw country sound and movement, I like Waylon’s records a lot more but this one is great.
Really great, such an amazing voice, great band and top tier songwriting. Feels like a gospel album at times. It felt a little long and repetitive by the end but great stuff
Really tough to rate. Started off hot with like a prayer, and I love the prince contribution. “Promise to try” was pretty torturous, then dear Jessie was pretty awful too, although the ending was kind of cool. and the ballad after that was miserable. But then keep it together was sick! Spanish eyes was weird but points for castanets. Last song was pure prince. Emotional rollercoaster here but I guess 3? I kind of think the bad outweighed the good on this album for me though
Not really a fan of punk music but at least there is some decent guitar playing on this one. I think it’s way too derivative to be included in this list. It’s a bummer when you hear 5 seconds of a record and immediately know what the rest of it is going to sound like, but that’s most punk records I guess.
Had a great time listening to this, I haven’t listened to this whole record probably since high school. I like show your bones more, the production and writing is a little more exciting but this is a cool trashy garage rock album. I like the guitar noise in no no no, sounds like a hawk or something. Objectively idk how good this is but it’s nostalgic to me. 3.5? 4?
I love this record! So many iconic songs on here. Great songwriting and production. Side B is full of great guitar solos. Not a big fan of “I’m in touch with your world” but the rest are great.
1001 Leonard cohen albums. I like you want it darker better, this one was okay. Favorite song was famous blue raincoat. I like how he brings back the triplet guitar thing like a theme. Good lyrics I guess? Idk this record didn’t do much to me.
Stevie wonder song had me cracking up. Bass playing is killer! Jesus song was kinda funny too but idk if it was supposed to be. Had a great time listening but dunno if I’ll listen again
I’m getting pretty irritated with how many objectively horrible albums are on this list. art is subjective and listeners have different palates but come on, this is just objectively terrible. The playing is trash, the songwriting is trash and the mixing makes it almost impossible to listen to. There’s nothing redeeming about this to me. 0/5
I loved this! I honestly enjoyed this way more than any Metallica studio album I’ve heard. The orchestral versions work so well, the whole thing is like an intense soundtrack. This would have been so great to see live, I’m sure there’s a video of it and I’m definitely going to watch it.
Sometimes I think it’s annoying how steely Dan has to have everything in every song, there’s like congas and triangles, quartal licks, a trillion different chords and rhythmic hits and vocal harmonies and organs and Rhodes and piano and xylophone and vibraphone and wah pedals and slides. It’s just so much and even though the playing is great it just always sounds a little stale and uninspired to me. The playing is obviously flawless but I never really feel anything when I hear steely Dan Trashy guitar tone in Boston rag is cool There are better steely Dan records
First track was kinda cool, I like the retro synth vibes but ultimately I will forget that I listened to this
Kinda generic, it’s like all 60’s bands rolled into one. Reminds me of the Beatles at times, the who, the dead and the singer sort of reminds my of joe cocker in a couple moments. Not terrible but some of the guitar playing and drumming was a little annoying
Exile on Main Street-stones Ziggy stardust-Bowie Pink moon-nick drake I’m still in love with you- al green Harvest- Neil young Eat a peach-allman bros Young gifted and black-Aretha All these albums came out the same year as this, why on earth is this on the list??
I like the concept and it was fun listening to once, but I wasn’t really excited about the music and probably wouldn’t listen again. This would be a great musical
Why are there two of these on the list? Is this one better than the other one? Maybe, who cares? 1.1
This has to be the dude from arctic monkeys. The orchestral vibe is kind of cool and interesting. “My mistakes” totally sounds like a bond song. One of the better modern British bands on the list. noise ending on I don’t like you anymore was kind of cool. Kind of an interesting record but didn’t really blow my mind and probably wouldn’t listen to it again.
This is so crazy lol. I enjoyed listening to this, idk if I will again, but hell yeah I’m glad this is exists
Ughhhh Bonus decimals for trying to make it interesting with the orchestra. 1.3
Amazing record, such a great listen from top to bottom. Cool writing, cool vibe, great players. Bowie has some really cool records but this might be my fav. Fame one of the coolest Bowie songs
Idk bands like Def Leppard are kind of lame IMO, like the songs all suck and it’s just shreddy guitars and screamy vocals and cheap thrills that record companies were churning out to fill the void of Led Zeppelin. It all kind of sounds the same to me. I like moody clean guitars in photograph and there was some fun shredding throughout Crazy that the guitarist was fired and replaced in the middle of making this record. I like enormous 80’s drums but this drum sound was not really doing it for me.
So sick. mannish boy is so iconic and this is such a perfect blues record. James cottons harmonica is killer. I love the drum sound throughout. Somehow they feel wonky but super groovy at the same time.
This is was pretty fun. Cool sounds and cool grooves, I thought I was going to like it less so was pleasantly surprised
I think I would have enjoyed this way more when I was 14 smoking weed for the first time. I found it a little boring but there are some interesting moments and kind of cool sampling. Decent background music I guess but wasn’t really moved by it.
Love the sleazy trashy vibe. According to the band, this record did a good job of capturing their live sound, but I kind of feel like it doesn’t translate super well. This is a band you have to see in a basement venue where the floor smells like beer
There are some ok moments but honestly what’s the point? This sounds like hotel lobby music
Idk. I used to kind of like u2 and was looking forward to listening to this one. Kinda disappointed. They are so cheesy and that’s gotta be the worst song ever written about New York. They do have some decent songs but they’re not on this album. I’m sure we’ll get at least one more u2 album on this list.
Really well made album. Every breath you take is honestly such a good song. Mother is one of the most unhinged songs I’ve ever heard. So weird
This was cool, I enjoyed listening to it. Probably won’t listen again but fun songs!
Kinda cool. I like some of the weirdness of it. Kind of beck-ish. The monster song was in Shrek. I like the weird solo in that song
This is great. 4.5 His voice is awesome and I love the slap back in some songs. I never really got into CCR albums, kind of always thought all their songs sounded the same (and I still kind of do) but it is really sick! Night time is the right time, ray charles is a million times better. Dig the double vocals and triplet thing in sinister purpose
3 in the context of this project, 1 in the context of all music. It was interesting and well thought out, I just kind of found myself waiting for it to be over
This is incredible. So cool that they played one of the inmates’ songs. Such a great band, Johnny and June are awesome. Sounds amazing for being recorded in a prison.
