Devil Without A CauseKid Rock
This album is shite and Kid Rock is a cunt. Highlight: Bawtidaba
This album is shite and Kid Rock is a cunt. Highlight: Bawtidaba
Nearly every song overstays its welcome. The album has some decent tracks though.
Most of the songs are really good, the highlights being: - Bat out of hell - Paradise by the dashboard light - All revved up with no place to go
Very mellow sounding, bit too much for me. Barely noticed the album was even playing sometimes.
The first 8 tracks are bangers, unfortunately I didn't enjoy the subsequent songs as much. Still a very good album overall.
Felt like an experimental album. Did not enjoy at all.
A very good album that has a stronger first half
Thought it was a decent album
It's a pretty long album at 30 tracks but was found it quite enjoyable overall.
Couldn't bring myself to enjoy even a single song on this album
A few of the songs seemed alright but the album isn't really for me
It was a nice album to have on in the background but I couldn't pick out any standout songs.
I haven't listened to this album for a long time. Brings back a lot of memories. Really enjoyed listening to it again.
I liked the first two and last two songs which is 40% of the album.
A really good funk album, enjoyed almost all the songs. Was nice to listen to something I wouldn't usually pick.
Thought it was okay, nothing stood out to me.
It gets a bit samey but works alright in the background like a retro video game soundtrack.
Quite a mixed bag, enjoyed a couple of songs.
A mellow jazz album that works nicely has background music. Not sure I concentrated on the music enough to appreciate it fully.
Has some good tunes, I prefer some of their other albums though
Thought it was decent but I enjoy their later albums more.
Thought it was fairly "meh" for glam rock. Didn't particularly dislike it but nothing stood out either.
SMBU, Breathe and Firestarter are classics but the rest of the album is pretty great too.
Think I almost fell asleep listening to it.
Thought I would have enjoyed this more. However, the bizarre 10mins of "We Will Fall" taking up 1/3 of the runtime left a sour taste.
Thought I was listening to The Beatles or The Who in some parts. Quite enjoyed the rock opera story of it. Listening to the album on my earphones I wish the mono and stereo mix wasn't so jarring, that might have been an artistic choice but didn't work for me.
A few good songs with Bitter Sweet Symphony being top tier. Overall an alright album.
I can definitely see how this was a precursor to punk rock, but I didn't enjoy it much. None of the tracks really grabbed my attention.
A very enjoyable jazz orchestra album. The tracks are short and sweet, nothing overstays its welcome. I really enjoyed it.
I'm not really into R&B but found this to be a decent album. We Are Family, Lost in Music and He's the Greatest Dancer were the highlights.
I'm not a big fan of live albums and this one didn't change my mind. I would have liked to hear the instruments more but they are background noise to Sarah's singing. Lot of the songs sounded very similar and I got easily bored before the 20 track album had ended.
Couldn't even make it through the whole album, thought it was shite.
Quite mellow and chilled out. Thought it was good, gave it a couple of listens. Stupidity Tries was a highlight.
I don't have much of an affinity for Country music and this album didn't change that.
Thought some songs were okay but didn't really enjoy it.
I haven't really listened to much Radiohead, was a lot more instrumental than I expected. Thought it was okay, I may enjoy it more with subsequent listens.
This album is short and sweet, a great classic punk album. Highlight of the album was Pink Flag.
Apart from the hit singles I didn't like this album.
Album starts with a banger and doesn't quite reach that height again. Still I really enjoyed it and thought it was a great album overall.
Overall a weird but enjoyable album with a great variety of instruments and styles. The absolute classic tracks on this album are fantastic.
Liked the big singles from the album but overall thought it was just fine.
A really good funky ska-ish album. Enjoyed almost every song and will definitely listen to their other albums.
Youtube Music combined Born to Be With You with another Dion album called Streetheart. I did not like the former album, mostly very slow and soppy. Highlight of the album was Good Lovin' Man. I did enjoy the album Streetheart, had more of a rock n roll sound. However, that album still has a few soppy songs too.
Has a bit of a pop punk style to it which I liked in parts. But overall wasn't a big fan.
A super short album but had some enjoyable rock n roll. I'm not a fan of live albums but this one sounded quite balanced between the vocals and instruments.
"Drop the Pressure" was the highlight. Otherwise I found it a fairly forgettable album of background house music.
Enjoyed it more than I expected but each song and the album definitely over stays it's welcome. Wouldn't listen to it again.
I liked parts of the album but don't think I'd listen to it again, his warbly singing becomes tiresome. The opening track didn't start the album off well and should have been removed in favour of "The One You Love" which is far superior. Other highlights were "Little Sister" and "Waiting for a Dream"
Had not heard of her before but I ended up liking it a lot. "Crucify", "Precious Things" and "Leather" were my highlights.
Just like the name of the first track I also wondered "is this it?". That's a bit harsh because I did enjoy more than I disliked. I thought "Someday", "Last Nite", "Hard To Explain" and "Take It Or Leave It" were the best tracks.
A chilled out album that I thought was decent. "Heart Skipped A Beat", "Islands" and "Crystallised" were the highlights for me.
Had no heard this before but thought it was a fantastic bluesy rock album. So many great tracks, loved it. Highlights were "L.A. Woman", "L'America" and "Riders of the Storm".
Found it to be quite an interesting album that I ultimately liked. Not understanding the lyrics didn't take away my enjoyment of the album. I think the first half of the album is the stronger side. Highlights for me were "Nick" and "Soubour".
Didn't think it was good as their L.A Woman album but I still really liked this. "Break On Through", "The End" and "Light My Fire" were highlights of the album.
Sounded like The Beatles but not as good.
As others have said it's not as good as SFTD but I did really like it. Highlights for me were "Mexicola" and "Regular John".
Had a very mellow dream like sound to it which I enjoyed. I think I might like it more with some extra listens but it was quite nice as background music. Highlights were "Real Love" and "Silver Soul"
Had only heard the odd song from Simon and Garfunkel before and didn't particularly enjoy them. Unfortunately this album didn't change my mind. Highlights were "Baby Driver" and "Why Don't You Write Me".
What a fantastic short and sweet blues rock n roll album. Really enjoyed almost every song. Felt like I should have been listening to it in a smoke filled bar wearing a fedora. Highlights were "Blue Monday", "Reeling and Rocking" and "Blueberry Hill".
Quite a strange album, liked only "Hero Worship". Wasn't really for me.
This isn't Metallica's best album but its still pretty high up on my list. Could the album be shorter, yes. Would I want it shorter, hell no!
Not really my kind of music. Didn't like any song, sounded very repetitive.
The more I listened the more it grew on me. Might get a higher rating with a few more listens. Highlights were "This is Hardcore" and "I'm A Man".
Think I've listened to this four times already. His voice sounded like he smoked and drank his whole life but it fit the style and lyrics of the album perfectly. I really liked the darkness and melancholy of the album. Easily goes into a list of best albums I've ever heard. Highlights were "Steer Your Way", "You Want It Darker" and "It Seemed the Better Way".
"Hard to Handle" is the best song by far but I thought the rest of the album was alright.
The nicest thing that I could say about this album is randomly discovering the album art was an optical illusion. Unfortunately I thought all the songs were shite.
Found it quite chilled out but I didn't really like it. Not understanding the language feels like I'm missing out on a lot of the album's nuance.
Not usually that into R&B and thought this was okay. I think the songs just go on longer than they need to. "Shit, Damn, Motherfucker" could have been easily cut in half to make the same point. Highlight was "Brown Sugar".
Great album with so many good tracks Highlights were: With a little help from my friends Lucy in the sky with diamonds When I'm sixty four
I had heard her famous tracks like "What's Love Got to do with it" but never properly listened to her music. She has a great voice but it's quite a dated album.
Had not really heard these guys before but I really liked the bluesy rock style. Definitely will be listening to their other releases. The album flies by in 30mins and I really enjoyed it.
Hadn't heard anything from Dusty except the popular song or two. The album has a chilled out relaxed sound to it which I liked. Highlights were "Son of a Preacher Man" and "Don't Forget About Me".
I found very little to enjoy in this album.
Previously I had only heard "Another Brick In The Wall" but that was because of the cover by Korn! However, I was very impressed with the album, I've always enjoyed a good rock opera and this one is top class.
Adele has an amazing voice and I'm not usually into her music. However, I did like it more than I thought and when I am concentrating on the music I found I liked many more songs. Overall I thought it was decent. Highlights were "Hello", "Water Under the Bridge" and "Sweetest Devotion".
When "Bamboo Banga" started I thought I was going to hate this album. However, as the album progressed I found myself slowly enjoying it. I wouldn't listen to it again but overall I thought it was surprisingly decent. Highlights were "20 Dollar", Paper Planes" and "Come Around".
I'm don't particularly like Iggy Pop's music but because this is produced and composed by Bowie it had a more interesting sound. However, nothing stood out to me and I didn't really like most of the songs.
I like a bit of Rammstein and I can hear they've definitely taken inspiration from Laibach. I think the album is too long and the last third of is pretty awful. I swear it sounds like they're saying "I have not pooed" in the song "Herz-Felde". Highlight was "Leben - Tod"
Think I expected more rock from this album and instead got a mix with quieter ballad type songs. Highlights were "Beginning to see the Light" and "I'm Set Free"
Fantastic rock album, short and sweet. Must have listened to it about 4 times. Apart from "Bad Company" and "Can't Get Enough" they're fairly forgettable songs but that didn't stop me enjoying the album.
Only managed to listen to a quarter of the album, thought it was shite. What is this album doing on this list?
Album has an interesting mix of glam and the classic 80s rock sound. Overall thought it was decent album, might get an extra star with more listens. Was interesting to learn "Gunter glieben glauchen globen" came from "Rock Of Ages" because I always thought it was a weird way for The Offspring to start off "Pretty Fly For A White Guy". Highlights were "Rock Of Ages", "Rock Rock Till You Drop" and "Too Late For Love".
Wasn't really a fan of this. Best thing I can say is that it seemed alright as background music. Highlights were "Mr Disco" and "Vanishing Point".
Not really into folk rock but thought this was decent. It has a relaxed sound to it and I enjoyed more of the songs than I thought I would. Highlights were "Hoodoo Voodoo", "California Starts" and "Christ for President".
I love a good rock opera or concept album and thought this was really good. The first 7 tracks are especially strong, I just wish they didn't sound so much like The Beatles. Highlights were "Yes Sir, No Sir", "Some Mothers Son" and "Shangri-La"
Did not like this at all, was almost a mess of incoherent sounds. Perhaps this album did something revolutionary when it came out in the 70s but it just doesn't hold up.
Found this to be a very dull and boring album. It's not terrible but it's just not the type of music I enjoy.
There's not much to say about this, a Christmas album of mostly Christmas classics. The recordings sound pretty rough compared to modern standards. Everything is overplayed at this point so can't say I listened to the album properly.
I don't mind Coldplay too much, unfortunately their stuff is overplayed. However, apart from their singles I'm not sure I've ever properly listened to a Coldplay album. This debut album is pretty good, I liked a lot more of the tracks than I thought I would. But by the end I did get a little tired of the melancholy. Highlights were "Shiver", "Yellow" and "Spies".
I'm sounding like a broken record, but again I had not properly listened to Supergrass before. They have an interesting sound which means the album never became boring. I really liked it, will definitely listen to this again. Highlights were "Tonight", "Richard III" and "Cheapskate".
I love some classic British punk and this was no exception. It's less political and more silly but found that a refreshing change. Highlights were "Sometimes", "Peaches" and "Hanging Around".
This is an album I'll never listen to again, basically someone fucking about on a guitar for 30mins. While I did enjoy parts of the guitar work, the album as a whole was not that interesting. Highlights were "Hit it and Quit it" and "Maggot Brain".
Had never heard of these guys but I really enjoyed this. The prog rock sound on the album had an enjoyable funky sound. The album is bookended by two great tracks but "Roundabout" is definitely the highlight. It's a shame the rest of the album never quite reaches those heights.
Enjoyed this more than I thought I would, it has a nice mellow sound. Their voices work really well together. It's not something I'd listen to again but it was alright in the background.
Really enjoyed this album, has a great raw grunge sound to it. I don't know much about guitars but it sounded especially good to me! Definitely will give this a few more listens.
Finally some heavy metal! Pantera kind of passed me by in the 90s while I was in my Punk phase but I really enjoyed this. Some great riffs and a high level of anger/shouting throughout (what more could you need). The first 4 tracks are my highlights.
Overall quite a beautiful sounding album. The album switches between Jazzy songs to Folk tunes, I preferred the former. I found "Four Women" to be an especially powerful song. Highlights were "Either Way I Lose", "Break Down And Let It All Out" and "I Love Your Lovin' Ways".
I found it difficult to enjoy this album the first time I listened because I wasn't paying enough attention. On a second listen I realised it was far more interesting than initially thought. Especially after I read the background about the album. I think I'll like this album more and more with subsequent listens. It's got a really good production so everything is really clean and easy to hear. I listened to the "Deluxe Edition" to hear the bonus tracks and "The Recipe" is a fantastic track that should have been on the original. Highlights were "Backstreet Freestyle", "M.A.A.D City" and "Money Trees".
As soon as this album started I knew I wasn't going to like it, I found it to be very boring. On one of the public reviews on this site someone wrote, "So inoffensive it makes me want to go commit crimes just to make up for how fucking boring it is.". That is a bit harsh but not far off how I'm feeling.
Not a big reggae fan but found this to be a nice mellow album. Some of the songs seem to blend together because they sound so similar. I probably wouldn't listen to this album again. Highlights were "Concrete Jungle" and "High Tide or Low Tide".
I had never listened to a David Bowie album before but I really enjoyed this. I recognised a lot more songs than I thought I would. I found the first half of the album to be stronger than the second. Highlights were "Changes", "Light On Mars" and "Oh! You Pretty Things".
Never listened to a Beastie Boys album before but I recognised quite a few tracks. I thought it was pretty good overall, some great guitar riffs that work well with their rock rap style. Highlights were "Fight For Your Right", "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" and "Brass Monkey".
Had not heard any Jeff Beck before but I enjoyed the albums kind of blues-ish rock sound. So many of the tracks have some great guitar riffs, "Becks Bolero" is especially packed with them. Highlights were "Rock My Plimsoul", "I Ain't Superstitious" and "Hi Ho Silver Lining".
This is nowhere near as good as his second album 2001. I don't think it ages particularly well. I can understand the cultural significance of this album but apart from starting Snoop Dogg's career there wasn't much I liked on this album.
Not listened to the Pixies before but I enjoyed it more than I expected, they have an interesting style for the late 80s. The lyrics are not the strongest aspect of the album. A lot of them just end up repeat the same lines over and over again. Highlights were "Monkey Gone to Heaven" and "Debaser".
Overall I thought it was good but it didn't move me like his album "You Want It Darker", his voice and lyrics felt quite raw on that album. Although his gravelly voice really comes out in "Diamonds in the Mine". A very good album that I'd have not heard without this list. Highlights were "Avalanche", "Diamonds in the Mine" and "Joan of Arc".
Thought it was just okay, not many of the tracks stood out to me. Felt it was quite boring compared to their other albums. Highlights were "Drive My Car" and "Run For Your Life".
Thought it was okay, had some good tracks but many of the tracks sound quite similar. Highlights were "Separate And Ever Deadly" and "Only The Truth".
I love the heavy metal sound of Slipknot, the big drums and Corey Taylor's voice are amazing. This was never my favourite Slipknot album but it was better than I remembered. Highlights were "(sic)" and "Wait and Bleed".
I didn't like this album at first but felt there was something there, so I gave it another listen and I'm glad I did. I preferred the more electronic/psychedelic tracks and the longer songs were some of were my favourites. Highlights were "Each Time We Pass", "Opener" and "Ullswater".
I enjoy a good rock opera, unfortunately this isn't one of them. Found it very difficult to get through the +1h runtime. Highlight was "Pinball Wizard".
I thought I hadn't listened to a Cure album before but apparently Disintegration was album number 12. I gave that 3 stars which in hind sight was too generous. I'd hoped The Cure would be more interesting. Unfortunately it's a fairly quiet and moody album where the lyrics are drowned out by uninteresting music. Highlights were "A Forest" and "Play for Today".
I don't usually like live albums and this one didn't change my mind. Johnny Cash does a lot of chatting in between the songs which just took me out. Cash is obviously a great musician but I didn't care for this live album. Highlight of the album was "San Quentin".
I've always really loved Michael Jackson's music but had never listened to a whole album before. His voice is really good and the album has a great funky disco sound to it. Overall this was very good but the first half is definitely stronger. The highlights were: Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough Working Day and Night Burn This Disco Out
Not really listened to UB40 before, was surprised to learn the singers doing reggae are white guys. I didn't dislike it but so many of the songs blended together. It's all abit too samey. Highlights were "Food for Thought" and "Little By Little".
Was lot more mellow than I was expecting. The album almost passed me by in the background. When I tried to properly listen I got a bit bored. It's not bad but not much stands out. Highlights were "Sultans of Swing" and "Southbound Again".
Enjoyed the first 2 tracks but mostly because its inoffensive background music. The rest of the album was shite.
Was surprised to learn this is their only studio album, I always thought they had a bigger back catalogue. Being from 1977 the production sounds great and I can easily see how this influenced other bands over the years. Overall I quite liked this album. Highlights were "Anarchy In The UK", "Submission" and "God Save The Queen".
Tried a couple of times to listen to this but I just never found myself in the mood for it. I'm not into folk music and this album sounded like all the stuff I usually dislike. Highlights were: Hazey Jane II Northern Sky
The prog rock sound has aged really well and the 2008 remaster I listened to was nicely balanced. Some of the songs go on a bit too long but it didn't spoil my overall enjoyment. Highlights were: Dancing With The Moonlit Knight Firth Of Firth The Battle Of Epping Forest
Was surprised to see this on the list. Thought it held up better than expected, mostly because of the great guitar riffs. It's definitely not the 5 stars my teenage self would have given. The album is too long and some of the tracks should have been edited down too. It shouldn't really be on the list when you consider some of the other more interesting nu-metal that was out at the same time. It's easy to see why it was removed from subsequent books. Having said that I still enjoyed many of the tracks, nostalgia still going with this one. Highlights: My Generation Rollin' Take A Look Around
I thought the prog rock sound aged quite well and the 2008 remaster I listened to was nicely balanced. Some of the songs go on a bit too long but it didn't spoil my overall enjoyment. Highlights were: Dancing With The Moonlit Knight Firth Of Firth The Battle Of Epping Forest
Enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Had not heard much of Depeche Mode but liked their moody/synth sound. Some of the songs go on too long, especially "Enjoy the Silence" which could have been cut in half. Highlights were: World In My Eyes Personal Jesus
As soon as I saw it was folk rock I knew I was not going to enjoy it. After vaguely listening to the album I was right. Highlight was: Marrakesh Express
Didn't like this at all, found it to be very boring.
I do like Queen but did not recognise any of the tracks on this album. It's not their best but I thought it was overall a good album. Highlights: Father To Son Ogre Battle Seven Seas of Rhye
There was a nice sound to the album but the tracks sounded very samey. Nothing stood out it was just plesant to listen to in the background. Doubt I would listen again because the runtime is too long for the repetitive feeling of the songs. Highlights: Under The Pressure Red Eyes Burning
I'm not a big Radiohead fan, I always feel Tom Yorke is wailing more than he's actually singing. Thought this album was just okay but so much of it seems like them fucking about rather than anything cohesive. Highlights: You And Whose Army? I Might Be Wrong
I always enjoy Punk Rock but had not heard much of the Dead Kennedys. Really enjoyed the album but I listened to the Expanded Edition which gets abit long with 20 songs. Highlights: Kill the Poor Holiday in Cambodia Let's Lynch The Landlord
This is the kind of of stuff I love on the list, something I'd never listen to but thoroughly enjoyed. Thought it had a great funk sound and will definitely listen again. Highlights: Stand! I Want To Take You Higher Everyday People
I've enjoyed the odd Gorillaz song but not listened to a whole album before. Didn't really come away with a strong willingness to listen to any more of their albums. Too many of the tracks sound like a jam session. Highlights: Clint Eastwood Rock The House
Don't think I had listened to this whole album before but its fantastic. This is a proper good grunge rock album, it might even be my favourite of theirs. Although I haven't listened to Nevermind for a while. So many highlights: Scentless Apprentice Heart-Shaped Box Rape Me Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle Very Ape
This album has a really good production and sound but it is just not my kind of music. Theres a bizarre airy fairyness to it that just doesn't click with me. It's alright to listen to in the background I suppose. Highlights: Hidden Place Pagan Poetry
I haven't heard this album for a long time, it sounded a a lot more raw than I remembered. This is not The Offspring's best album but I still enjoyed it. Highlights: Self Esteem Come Out And Play It'll Be A Long Time
Had not listened to these guys before and was more genre bending than I expected. Think it was okay but a bit all over the place. Wouldn't listen to them again. Highlights: (Drawing) Rings Around the World It's Not the End of the World No Sympathy
This is a quality album containing a lot of Metallica's classic hits. I'm one of the outliers in that I quite like their more recent albums too but this is probably their best. Highlights that aren't the classics Enter Sandman, Sad But True or Nothing Else Matters: Holier Than Thou Wherever I May Roam The Struggle Within
Its quite nice background music but nothing stood out to me. The whole album just kind of passed over me and I felt whelmed.
Enjoyed the jazzy African funk sound of it all. It's something I never would have listened to but I'm glad I have now. It's definitely not boring background music like some other albums in this list but this does work nicely in the background.
I've not really heard much from The Smiths so I have no past affinity for his music, I thought this was alright. Unfortunately he's a massive cunt so he can get fucked. Highlights: You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday
If I wanted a whole album of on-hold or elevator music then this would be it. But I didn't and thought it was extremely forgettable.
Thought I had not heard The Jam before but immediately recognised "That's Entertainment". Side one definitely contains the better songs. I liked the punk-ish sound of the album and thought it was good overall. Highlights were: That's Entertainment But I'm Different Now
I had heard Amy's hit singles which I enjoyed but this was her first album I've gone through. Thought it was fantastic, she has an amazing voice which works perfectly with the sad nature of her songs. At 34mins the album is balanced nicely and doesn't overstay its welcome. Highlights: Rehab Back to Black You Know I'm No Good
I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, he uses a lot of interesting styles of music. Think Imagine was his only song I had before but overall I was pleasantly surprised. Highlights: Imagine Crippled Inside It's So Hard
The album has a definite 60s sound for better and worse. It's abit of mixed bag but there are plenty of enjoyable tracks. Highlights: Kicks Ballad of a Useless Man I'm Not Your Stepping Stone
Did not like this at all, thought it had a strange funk-jazz sound with even weirder lyrics. The album is like someone threw a load of stuff to the wall to see what would stick, but then decided to use the shite that fell on the floor. Highlight: Them Changes
Ute has a decent voice but I didn't particularly enjoy the album, it's not really my kind of music. Ending the album with a messy 11min song also left a sour taste. Highlights: The Case Continues You Were Meant For Me
Had never heard anything by these guys before but I thought this was an awesome album. I really like a band called The Airborne Toxic Event and I can definitely hear some of the influences from The National. I listened to the Expanded Edition which has a far better version of Terrible Love. Will definitely listen again and check out some of their other stuff. Highlights: Bloodbuzz Ohio Runaway Terrible Love (Alternate Version)
The album has a very psychedelic and dream like sound which I was not a fan of. I really struggled to get through all of the tracks. I'm sure it was intentional but I hated the production/mixing because at times it felt like they were singing in another language.
Thought it was an alright album, had an interesting rock/electronic mix to the tracks. However, having most of the album be 5+ min tracks felt fatiguing with the repetitive beats. Sound of Silver being the most egregious of them all. Highlights: North American Scum All My Friends
I was immediately put off by seeing it had two 20+min tracks however it was better than I expected. Learning it was entirely made by a 19 year old in the 70s is quite impressive. It's fine as background music but I wouldn't listen to it again.
Another album with a 20+ min song except this time it sounds like they've just slapped together a load of random sounds. Perhaps this was ground breaking in 1996 but it didn't hold up. I didn't even enjoy it as background music.
Really enjoyed this album, has a great funky blues sound. Thought I had not heard any of their tracks before but immediately recognised Sunshine Of Your Love. The only blemish is the album ends on a bizarre note which sounds nothing like the rest of tracks. Highlights: Strange Brew Sunshine Of Your Love Tales Of Brave Ulysses Outside Woman Blues
This album has a cool grungy punk sound so I would have expected to enjoy it more. However there was something missing to really elevate it. Not a bad album, but not great either. Highlights: Maps Pin Black Tongue
I really like Jay-Z's rapping style, it sounds so clear and crisp. There are some great beats and raps on the album, however he has far better albums than this. Highlights: Izzo Renegade U Don't Know Heart of the City
Couldn't even manage to finish this album. Thought it was god awful.
I thought this album was decent but could have been a lot tighter if they trimmed the fat a bit. It's great in places but the "noise" of a whole album got tiring. Highlights Teen Age Riot Candle
Love a bit of AC/DC and this album starts with a banger. Not sure I had listened to a whole album of theirs before but thought this was great. Does get a bit samey by the end but it didn't put me off. Highlights: Highway to Hell Walk All Over You Touch Too Much If You Want Blood (You've Got It)
I had not listened to a whole album of The Madness previously, just their big hits. I occasionally enjoy a bit of Ska but this wasn't that good, sounded quite boring. Highlights: Rise and Fall Tomorrows Just Another Day Our House
I often enjoy Punk Rock and this album starts with a banger. Had not heard anything by these guys before but thought it was really good. For something released in the 70s it sounds quite ahead of it's time. Highlights: Know Your Product Lost and Found This Perfect Day I'm Misunderstood
Not a fan of The Rolling Stones and this album hasn't changed my mind. There's something about the singing that really annoys me. There are some good tracks here but there are far too many duds. Highlights: Rocks Off Tumbling Dice
It's like someone decided to fuse a load of music together without realising it sounds awful. I found the singing to be especially grating. Couldn't manage to finish it.
Just like The Chronic the gansta rap lyrics get tiring very quickly. I doin't like album skits at the best of times and this one has far too many. Highlights: Gin and Juice Ain't No Fun
After listening to 25 I said, "I'm not usually into her music" but I think I'm becoming a fan. I found lots to like in this album and her singing voice is quality. Not every track is great and after a while some blend together but overall I quite liked this album. Highlights: Rolling In The Deep Rumour Has It I'll Be Waiting Someone Like You
Thought this album was alright, short enough that it didn't overstay its welcome. It had an interesting heavy punk reggae style to the songs which I enjoyed. Although the production sounds a little rough compared to modern standards. Highlights I Against I House of Suffering
Thought this was a fantastic album, so much so that I listened to it twice. Had not heard much from these guys before but I will definitely be listening to more of their stuff. I liked their cool blues rock sound and felt it was a consistent album with hardly any shite songs. Highlights: Everlasting Light Tighten Up Howlin' For You
This is one hell of a debut album, some of the best hip hop you'll ever listen to. There's some great beats but the lyrics are on another level. The intro to Method Man is pretty funny the first few times but wears on me after a while cause I just want to hear the great song. Highlights: Shame On a Ni**a Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing to Fuck Wit C.R.E.A.M. Method Man
I did not find much to like about this album, it had too much of a folky indie sound which I hate. Then the album just felt like it went on forever. Highlight: Two Weeks
I thought I would enjoy it more but was very forgettable. I didn't dislike it but think it just hasn't aged well. Highlight: The Next Big Thing
Nice as background music but don't think I'd ever listen again. It's short enough that it doesn't overstay it's welcome. Rumba Mama is the odd one out from the album, sounding nothing like the other tracks. Highlights: Birdlands Teen Town
Had never listened to Velvet Underground before but thought this was pretty good. Apparently it was very influential in its day, I can see why. Highlights: All Tomorrow's Parties Heroin Venus In Furs
I've not listened to much Rush but this is an awesome album. Neil Peart's drumming is legendary and works so well with the great guitar riffs. The album flies by with a tight 40min runtime, will definitely listen again. Highlights: Tom Sawyer Limelight YYZ
Having this be back to back against Moving Pictures has not helped this album because it's not as good. I'm not usually fan of stupidly long songs however there is something really enjoyable about the 20min 2112 Overture track. Highlights: 2112 Overture Lessons A Passage To Bangkok
I didn't like everything on this album but the good tracks are top quality. The interludes and skits I am never a fan of and didn't enjoy them here either. Think this might get a higher rating with subsequent listens, but overall another great album from Kendrick. Highlights: Wesley's Theory King Kunta Alright i
Never heard of these guys before but I thought they had quite a good punkish sound. Might get a higher rating with subsequent listens. Highlights: Damaged Goods Natural's Not In It I Found That Essence Rare
Have not listened to a whole Basement Jaxx album before but this one opens with a banger. However, I'm not really into House music and apart from the three tracks below most of the album didn't do anything for me. Nearly a whole hour of this was quite tiring by the end. Highlights: Rendez-Vu Red Alert Bingo Bango
While I can appreciate Jazz I'm just not that into the genre. I found this to be interesting and "cool" but it was basically just background music. Maybe I'd have enjoyed it more if I really concentrated on it. The 12 tracks flyby so I could easily listen to it again.
I don't think I've ever heard a whole album of theirs before but there are some absolute classics here. Thought I would have enjoyed it more but songs about Adidas trainers, and KFC just don't resonate with me. Highlights: It's Tricky Walk This Way
I have always enjoyed odd Korn song but not listened to a whole album before. There's something about those down tuned guitars that just hits right. I thought it was overall alright just a bit too long. Don't think I'd listen to the whole album again but I really enjoyed the below tracks. Highlights: Freak On A Leash Got The Life Dead Bodies Everywhere Children Of The Korn
This album is shite and Kid Rock is a cunt. Highlight: Bawtidaba
Not heard much Deep Purple before and thought this was some decent rock music. I didn't particularly dislike anything but nothing blew me away either. Highlights: Highway Star Smoke On The Water Space Truckin'
Had not heard much of these guys but thought it was really good. Reminded me a lot of Feeder who I also like. Highlights: Words There Goes The Fear N.Y. Pounding Caught By The River
Had never heard of Harry Nilsson before but immediately recognised the opening song. I can see why he was called "The American Beatle". Overall thought this album was great and will listen to it again. Highlights: Gotta Get Up Down Without You Jump Into The Fire
There were some interesting tracks but overall I didn't like this. Highlights: I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night) Get Me to the World on Time
Thought this was okay but most of the songs didn't stand out to me. I wouldn't listen to this again as I found overall a little boring. Highlights: Move with Me
Quite a chilled out rock album that I thought was decent. A bit folky in parts so not sure I'd listen to it again. Highlights: Take It Easy Take the Devil Tryin'
When the guitars and drums started in "Mannish Boy" I thought I was about to hear "Bad to the Bone" and I had started the wrong album. Anyway, thought this was a great Blues album, enjoyed almost every song. Will definitely listen to again. Highlights: Mannish Boy The Blues Had a Baby and They Named It Rock and Roll Deep Down In Florida
Had not heard of Carole King before and after hearing the first track I thought I would enjoy it more. However I didn't really like it, was very slow and felt quite bored by the end of it. Highlights: I Feel the Earth Move
Another artist I had never heard before but I quite enjoyed this album, especially more than Carole King yesterday. Don't think I'd listen to it again but perhaps some of the highlights I would revisit. Highlights: Sleep to Dream Shadowboxer Criminal Carrion
I'm not a big R.E.M. fan and this album didn't do much for me. I think the thing that puts me off most is the singing, find whiny and hard to understand. Was okay as background music but definitely won't listen to this again. Highlights: Radio Free Express Pilgrimage Talk About The Passion
I think I've come to appreciate The Beatles more since listening to their albums fully. They have such a great style and are able to switch their sound so easily. Highlights: Come Together Oh! Darling Here Comes The Sun Carry That Weight
This was not as good as Hunky Dory but I still thought it was decent. Not sure I'd listen to it again but there something interesting about his weird rock style. Highlights: TVC15 Stay
Haven't listened to The Vines since I was in school. Thought it was okay, the second half of the album drags a bit but there are some bangers here. Highlights: Highly Evolved Outtathaway Get Free
I'm not that into electronic music, unless its Ronald Jenkees, but I'm surprised this was on the list because I found it fairly boring. Was okay as background music I guess, but I can't say anything good about it.
I think I'm learning I don't really like Bowie's albums. I'll happily listen to the odd single but his music/style is not for me. At only 41mins I really had to fight through each song. It all sounded so random and incoherent to me.
This album was probably on par with Dusty In Memphis. Not many of the tracks stood out to me, it wasn't a bad album but I wouldn't listen to it again. Highlights: Will You Love Me Tomorrow Wishin' And Hopin' Don't You Know
Apart from the three highlighted songs I did not like this album. However that is 3 out of the 8 songs on the album so maybe it's overall okay. It just sounded very 80s, in a bad way. Highlights: Shout Everybody Wants To Rule The World Head Over Heels
A lot of the songs sound quite similar so the whole album kind of blended into one. I wouldn't listen to it again but I'm glad it was on the list, it's something I wouldn't have sought out. Highlights: Big Iron El Paso
Not heard of these guys before but thought it was alright. Nothing particularly stood out but there were some enjoyable tracks. Highlights: Antmusic Killer In the Home
