Pretty Solid. Good Tracks: A Day @ the Races What's Golden One of Them Acetate Prophets
I can understand why this album is lauded, but ultimately I find this very boring. Like, I'm sure it was innovative and fascinating back in the day, and perhaps it is my limited attention span for longer, less frenetic pieces, but this just didn't hit for me. Long and slow, apathetic sadness is portrayed well, but like a lot of pieces, it just doesn't resonate. One of those pieces where I think "this is good, not my thing."
This was mediocre. I mean, cool, the guy from Deep Purple has pipes. That's about it. I have no interest in elongating songs for double their length at live shows.
I can now see why folks appreciate Gil Scott-Heron so much. The lyricism is incredible!
Oh god I'm becoming a krautrock fan
Fascinating, explorative, and transformative for the time! It didn't catch me, but it's lovely in the background.
This album was well put-together and orchestrated, but ultimately, the anti-religious messaging was very dated and distracting. Yeah, organized religion and Christianity kinda suck... ok. That aside, there were some fascinating rhythmic choices and the guitars chugged along the whole time. While the music is solid, I just can't help but be distracted by all the atheistic fervor of a pedantic middle school contrarian.
Perfect Timing. Also, what an ecclectic album! Fascinating use of pitching up the vocal lines,too.
Didn't realize this album had SO many bangers, especially in a row. Very cool and interesting production as well.
