4/5. First half is perfect but second half has a lot of filler songs. The End is great but doesn’t make up for the three songs before it that don’t land.
4/5. First half is perfect but second half has a lot of filler songs. The End is great but doesn’t make up for the three songs before it that don’t land.
3/5. Good background music. Not the best electronic album I’ve heard. Would rather listen to massive attack.
5/5. Very unique collection of songs that surprises on each listen. A lost gem of the era.
2/5. Some good songs but kind of weak compared to Funhouse. Wouldn’t listen again besides 1969 and No Fun.
3/5. Fairly a good album with some listenable songs. Not my favorite genre but see the appeal.
4/5. Crazy how there are so many hits on this album. It should be a 5/5 but some of the lesser known ones sound too similar that it’s hard to tell them apart. By the end of the album you get the vibe but dang does this album have bangers.
4/5. Some songs like song is over and bargain are pretty mid. Every other song is very good.
3/5. I can see the influence the band gave to future rock/rap bands but it’s not a genre I enjoy.
2/5. Lyrics are quite interesting and unique songwriting, but I would never listen to this album regularly. Makes me feel so out of place. Some songs I might listen to again but never the whole album.
4/5. Amazing musicianship but too many filler songs. They were nice interludes but felt unnecessary. Otherwise, all 4 main songs were great.
4/5. A mostly solid album of nice folk rock songs. Songs on here that are going to be on repeat for me. Some songs I will skip every time. Good ones outweigh the bad.
5/5. What a fun and musically talented album. Everybody in the band seems to be having fun and each song stands on its own. Louis Prima is such a good frontman.
1/5. I’m sure these songs would have been more powerful back in the day but I do not want to listen to this more than I have to.
2/5. Fun jams and musicianship but some of the songs are longer than necessary. Summertime blues and second time around are the highlights. The others are okay.
5/5. A great collection of songs that I can choose from any and be satisfied. Just great songwriting and musicianship.
4/5. It’s a pretty well-rounded rap album that doesn’t really have a bad song on it. There are just some songs I’d skip after a few listens.
3/5. It had a great first half with enjoyable listens however it dragged on at the end. If this album was only 40 minutes long it would be perfect.
4/5. The last song is not great but every other song really brings it. Super funky and awesome.
3/5. Surprisingly more enjoyable than I was expecting. Fell off near the end of the album but overall pretty solid for what it is.
A mostly great album with some skippable songs. Androgynous is a necessary song for all music lovers. Maybe a few more listens would warrant a higher score but not at the moment.
5/5. An awesome album that has back to back bangers. Although not all songs are the best songs in the world, the first half of the album really makes it amazing. The second half is a lot darker but still great.
5/5. A wild and musically expressive album. There was no filler and each song stands out on its own. The lyrics don’t quite make sense but the voice is beautiful. It feels like I’m listening to a feeling.
5/5. As many times as I’ve listened to this album, it still surprises me how catchy and well made these songs are. And knowing the tension between the band members, the songs become that much more powerful.
5/5. What an amazing album. Truly a masterpiece. Not a single bad song, it’s crazy how each one is just followed by another.
4/5. This is an important album for the Black Experience but there are definitely some misses on the album. I don’t think Gil is a very good singer so extended periods of him just singing is not working for me.
1/5. Quite a boring album with nothing new to offer within the pop world. Maybe I’m not a love song enjoyer but it was pretty bad.
2/5. Great musicianship with bland music. Hard to dig for long periods of time.
4/5. A pretty enjoyable album with amazing vocals from Steven Tyler. Some of the songs are cliche but the transitions between songs really makes this album stand out.
3/5. An fun album of talking heads inspired music. But there are a few quite annoying songs that bring this album down some.
A pretty well rounded album of excellent singing and some topical songs. Most are not too crazy though to write home about.
2/5. Doesn’t feel as amazing as I’ve heard it to be. Feels like a group of people who had fun playing but didn’t know how to play their instruments and then started a band. There are some catchy songs but most lean on the side of annoying.
5/5. Every song was enjoyable and fun and the beats were amazing. Some okay songs but no bad ones.
5/5. A truly forward-thinking album that is important not only to the rap community but also to America and the world as a whole.
4/5. Mostly the songs are really good but near the end they start to sound similar and don’t stand out enough. A shorter album would have been better.
4/5. Just a great pop album. Some skippable songs but last nite and someday are classics. Recommended for all.
1/5. Not a very enjoyable album. Boring and uninteresting.
3/5. Many of the songs sound the same but they are all fairly enjoyable.
2/5. An interesting rock album with some standouts but probably not going to visit much later.
3/5. A pretty unique and enjoyable album. Hard to get into at first but found a few new sounds on relistens.
3/5. It’s an interesting perspective that provides a solid collection of songs to the indie rock scene.
3/5. Some bangers but several songs that fall really flat. Even Wild World is not great despite it being a popular one.
4/5. Quite a good collection of big band songs. It’s not perfect but great musicianship and instrumentation all around.
2/5. I wanted to be excited for this after the first song but there was a lot of empty feeling in this album compared to early Beatles and beach boys. Didn’t have the same passion.
5/5. Although the last song isn’t my favorite, every song after another is a classic. I can choose any song and be fine with listening to it.
4/5. Mostly a perfect album besides some songs that drag on a little too long.
2/5. Some good songs but mostly bland pop.
3/5. The first half of the album are all amazing songs but it significantly drops in quality. If this was a 4 song EP it would be a 5/5.
3/5. Pretty good punk album that could be more enjoyable but it may take a few listens. Some songs sound similar.
3/5. A fairly good album but the singer can be annoying at times. Dig the cool instrumentation though.
2/5. Some great slow pop songs but otherwise, a boring album. Not much is said despite the epicness it tries to reach.
4/5. A surprisingly enjoyable listen. Some great punk songs and weird instrumentals. Definitely going to spin this one again.
2/5. Maybe I’m not a country guy but most of these were quite generic. It was not hard to listen to but it if it was any longer it might have been.
4/5. First half is solid. Second half has some sleepers but overall a great listen.
4/5. A pretty great collection of songs with it getting a little repetitive near the end. Sinatra has a great way of setting the mood with every song somehow.
1/5. I can see the songwriting chops but this did not age very well. Not even the hit single off the album is worth listening to. Won’t put on again.
4/5. A really fun and jamming album that discusses politics and controversial topics in a unique way. Some songs do not hit at all but I found myself into it for most of the way through.
5/5. Hard to not like this album. A perfect one front to back. No other notes needed.
3/5. A fun political album, with some jamming vibes. I can tell they are having fun but not necessarily great musicianship.
4/5. Not all songs are perfect but there are some bonafide classics like everything hurts, nightswimming, and man on the moon. Less songs would make this a perfect album.
4/5. As much as I respect this album, it’s not something I would listen to on repeat. Great songs, but the general vibe is not for me.
5/5. There are just a few songs that prevent the 5/5 score but it is so close that I thought I’d give it anyway. 4.8/5 to be exact.
4/5. A great collection of tracks but some sound too similar to feel like they stand out.
4/5. Sad and lovely music that really pulls at the heart strings.
5/5. Not a bad song on this. At least on first listen. Might go down later but it was really good.
1/5. Not the vibe at all. Nothing stood out and it all sounds like a hot mess. I’ll try it once more at a later time but just no good at all.
2/5. Some great instrumentals but mostly very similar styles without much diversity among them. The opening track is great but I would rather just watch the movie.
2/5. It’s a technically good album but it feels like a group of people who just found out that jazz was a genre and made a whole album to try it out. I don’t feel the passion in it.
4/5. So much better than Doolittle. This actually feels like punk.
3/5. This is a very beautiful album but I feel like I need to be in the mood for it. The lyrics are amazing but it does feel like spoken word poetry with some backing tracks.
4/5. A fairly enjoyable album with a few duds but mostly the aesthetic makes up for it.
4/5. The passion and uniqueness of her voice really elevates this album. She is just mesmerizing to listen to. The only downside is the fact they are covers.
4/5. Honestly not a bad song on here but some okay songs that could be removed for a nice tight album.
3/5. Honestly a surprise of how good this was. The latter half of the album is not as good but still an enjoyable listen.
2/5. Not bad but not quite good either. It feels too epic for themes that don’t feel very epic. Every song feels like the end of the world.
2/5. Feels like a mix of punk and experimental which doesn’t sit quite right.
3/5. A fun collection of psychedelic songs with unique instrumentation but nothing to write home about.
4/5. An essential in jazz listening but sometimes you’re not always in the mood for jazz.
3/5. A good blues album but feels a little long. All the guest appearances were great but it maybe should have ended there.
4/5. A fantastic collection of heavy rock songs. There are some skippable songs on here but truly an awesome album.
3/5. Saw a description of this album that was “jazz in the form of hardcore-punk” and that is the most accurate one I could find. It’s honesty fairly enjoyable and interesting but not a repeatable listen without feeing like your head is gonna explode.
2/5. The language barrier is the biggest obstacle but it feels too dreamy to feel invested. I can tell there are repetitive lyrics but not in a good way.
3/5. Many great songs but they don’t flow very well. Feels like many b-sides to other singles.
3/5. Not many bad songs but maybe a few filler. Overall a pretty well rounded album.
3/5. Some classics but overall too short and even the other songs somehow still feel like filler.
3/5. A good collection of blues songs but a little short to feel like an album. And because of that, the okay songs feel too long.
3/5. A fairly enjoyable soundtrack with fun instrumentation. The hits are the vocal tracks though.
4/5. Not a huge Christmas person but these songs slap. The instrumentals are what really bring this home, with driving guitar and drums. The singers are great too, all providing their own styles.
4/5. A pretty loud and fun live album but the first half feels unfinished. Second half is basically perfect. Just 4 long songs would make this a banger.
3/5. I heard the first few notes and thought I wasn’t going to like it but it has definitely grown on me. It does get a little old later in the album but at least three of the songs are very fun.
3/5. A good prog metal album but doesn’t hold up all the way throughout. And prog can definitely drag if it isn’t great from front to back.
1/5. Definitely not blues and not really that interesting either. Kind of hard to even listen to with some songs.
5/5. Not quite rock, not quite punk, a bit of both. Every song slaps and any one could be randomly put on and it’d be awesome.
4/5. I love the energy but it doesn’t go hard enough honestly. Feels light hearted at times and I get distracted during songs. Musicianship is great but there is a sense of light heartedness that takes away from the energy of the album.
4/5. Honestly a great collection of soft pop songs. Each one filled with great vocals and lyrics. A moving album for a debut.
3/5. First half of the album is great but the second half drags on a little too long. Plus I guess I’m not much of a Cuban music listener.
3/5. Sounds a little like too many other songs. Like almost similar note patterns. Some fun and unique instrumentation keeps this from being a bad album.
3/5. Unique enough to stand out but the middle of the album does not stand out enough. It picks up near the end and it’s not bad, just not a repeat listen.
3/5. Feels bigger than it should be. What I mean is, it was okay but it takes itself too seriously. None of the songs really mean much but they sound nice.
2/5. Not a lot of memorable songs and the Mrs. Robinson track wasn’t even on the office track listing. It’s not unlistenable just not important.
3/5. A fun collection of punk pop but a little repetitive and the vocals are unintelligible at best. Catchy though.
1/5. I mean, this is doesn’t feel new age or disco, just a bad mix of both. Even the single is hard to swallow. Just feels empty.
4/5. An awesome album with very intelligent lyrics about life, homelessness, religion, and purpose through a dirty lens of progressive rock. Some misses but mostly great stuff.
3/5. A fun pop album but nothing standing out as amazing. May have to listen again for better rating.
2/5. A very interesting album. It’s not bad but it’s not unique enough to listen to again. The only that feels different is the German language. Don’t have too many feelings for this one.
4/5. Honestly a very relaxing and peaceful album. I don’t have any complaints really besides you may need to be in the mood for it and if you’re not it can be hard to get into.
3/5. A fairly good rock album but some songs do not hit. They seem like pop songs forced onto rock songs.
3/5. A call back to awesome jamming songs. It’s a little long to be a 4 but it definitely is a good time. An album to play really loud for sure.
3/5. A pretty good blues psych album. Janis really stands as the key component here but despite the uniqueness there, there are only a few that are good. But those ones are really good.
3/5. Some great vocals but not too many great songs. About two or three classics mixed with okay stuff.
2/5. Nothing super interesting to take with me. Feels like they should sound from the 70s but they’re from the 90s and that’s not a compliment.
2/5. A unique voice mixed with good beats should yield good results but the songs just come out boring and uninspired most of the time. I can listen to it, I just would rather listen to something else.
3/5. A fun jazz album that makes it stand out with the organ. Pretty good background music.
4/5. Honestly a pretty wholesome collection of songs. Sounds like pastoral fantasy put into song. Whisky and free.
3/5. The vocals the main driving force here but the instrumentation still goes hard. Fun and energetic vibes.
2/5. American Pie the song is great and there are some other good ones here but they do just feel like covers of better singers and writers. It’s okay to listen to but don’t think I’ll be returning.
4/5. It’s almost perfect but a few songs do feel a little lackluster. All the other songs are straight bangers though.
5/5. What a fun and energetic live album. Never a huge fan of thin lizzy but this just covers all the bases for a live album and is just greatest hits but better.
2/5. It’s an okay punk album. Some good guitar work but not super engaging. The long songs do drag on and the short ones don’t feel distinct enough.
3/5. A fairly good jazz album. Some songs slap including the first one. Some are okay. Decent overall.
3/5. An okay pop rock psyche album. Some songs seem pretty evolved while others are trying way too hard to be psychedelic.
1/5. At best, it is good elevator music. I understand it didn’t have a lot of competition in 1962 and sure felt ahead of it’s time but at the moment it just feels dated.
2/5. The heavy bass and orchestral instrumentation on several songs really are good but I’m pretty sure he talks about being in love with me for at least half of the songs. Just not interesting enough later on to keep me invested.
3/5. A pretty good album with not bad songs but not amazing songs. Don’t mind if this was on, unique songwriting keeps it interesting.
4/5. A fun and energetic rap album from a creative artist. Crazy that she’s 18 years old here. Some misses but gosh darn are there some bangers on here.
2/5. An interesting electronic album that feels a little too long for its own good. Some okay songs but nothing too lasting. Not bad background music though.
5/5. It’s hard not to praise this album for its originality and creativeness. Each song is great, although not all accessible at first. Anyone can find a different favorite song here.
2/5. Wish I could be into this one but it drags on too long without going anywhere. Some good songs but feels quite bloated at times.
4/5. Honestly a pretty solid pop electronic house album. No Portishead or daft punk, but a nice in between. Great background music but in a good way.
5/5. The best live album I know. Every song is enhanced live and the solos and instrumental work is so much better than studio. Truly amazing.
5/5. Honestly an amazing jazz album. It feels so innovative and amazing. Although I may not play it all the time, it just feels so necessary and unique.
3/5. First half of the album is really great and the true highlight of the album. The other songs are good but feel more like experiments of sound instead of songs. I get ambience but not quite the same here.
3/5. An upbeat rock album with some blues involved. The best songs are the only good songs. Other songs are kind of skippable but still enjoyable.
3/5. A very interesting and engaging folk album. Hard to break away from for several songs but others can definitely be skipped.
1/5. Honestly, sure, it’s definitely some disco but quite boring. Good times is old at this point and the fact that it is 7 minutes makes it worse.
3/5. Some of motorkill’s best songs but really only 3 at most. Everything else sounds so similar it’s hard to pick and choose which I would rather listen to, and most of the time it’s none of the other ones. Still rocks.
3/5. A fun, albeit forgettable album of acid jazz. I would have thought this would hit all the right notes for me but just kind of drags in many parts of the album. Mostly danceable.
1/5. I don’t know what it is but this definitely ain’t it. Feels so forced and nothing stands out as listenable. Don’t get the Amy winehouse hype, wish I could.
3/5. There’s some interesting songs on this one but don’t think it pushes it over to a 4 despite the great ones on this one. Heart of gold, old man, Alabama, and words are all great. Everything else is not interesting enough besides maybe out on the weekend.
2/5. The songs do hit and sure there is a nice vibe throughout, but not sure if play again. Some songs I’ll grab and keep, the others can stay where they are. Fun rock but not good enough. Also, the main hit is just kinda gross and did not age well.
2/5. I don’t know honestly. It’s good but I’m not going to listen to it again. It just didn’t hit. Wish I had a better reason. Bopping head throughout but not anything that feels down my alley.
3/5. A very interesting and unique album that says more in its existence than its listenability. Cool samples and some good songs but mostly a statement on music itself that feels important.
2/5. A pretty fun collection of distorted garage rock. Nothing standing out as a repeat listen.
4/5. Honestly, got better the more I listened to it. Doesn’t redefine the wheel but definitely stands out as great songwriting and rock/pop songs.
5/5. Hard to rate this lower despite some of the misses on the album. As an overall experience, it feels like a storybook of ideas that hits just right wherever you start. A true album listening experience.
3/5. Okay respect the originality and the straightforwardness of it. In your face yet complex and smart. However, not a listenable album really. Definitely an experience and may be better the more I listen to it. But from the get go, hard to not switch at some points.
2/5. Just a generic rock album. Sure, more raw than normal, but nothing in the way of songwriting. Not bad but just okay.
2/5. I really do enjoy the creative lyricism here, as it invokes themes such as death, murder, madness, and other darker themes in contrast with the folksy music. However, it is the folksy music that is a negative for me. Reading the lyrics is more interesting than hearing someone sing it.
4/5. A sweet and beautiful album that feels innocent and young, riddled with trauma and sadness. I will have to see if that feeing lasts to bump it up to a 5 but is definitely a relisten.
3/5. Another beautiful album from Drake, not as good as Bryter but it may grow on me like the other one. This one feels too quiet and the other one had great instrumentation which made it stand out.
3/5. I’ve listen to LCD sound system’s earlier stuff and this doesn’t have that kick and punch that the others have. Sure I may like it better if it was the LCD album I listened to but even then, not awesome. Still good but nowhere near perfect.
3/5. What a wild album, 10+ minute long songs mostly and amazing crooning from Hayes. However, that last song is not listenable. 18+ minutes with most of it just talking. First three are fantastic though.
3/5. A great pop album with the singer really guiding the album. Some classics for sure on here but definitely some misses. Will pick and choose but not listen all the way through again.
4/5. I don’t know why I like this one so much, I guess it’s the bluntness of the lyrics and the creative use of sound and samples. Not perfect and not a game changer, but gosh is this fun to listen to.
2/5. Yeah it was okay. The “alt-country” it created was surely in its beginning stages, didn’t age very well.
4/5. An influential pop album with many classics and hits but the bookend 1-2 songs of the album are definite misses. If this was an EP, with the middle 4 songs, it would be perfect.
3/5. Some good songs on here but several skips. It’s definitely still listenable but nowhere near perfect.
3/5. Quite good music, great rhythm and overall vibe. Don’t think I’d listen to it in my free time but it definitely was not bad.
3/5. Debating on this one for a while and it came down to would I go out of my way to listen to it again and probably not at the moment. It’s really good but don’t think I’m putting it on repeat.
2/5. Idk, wish this was better than it was. Sure some interesting pop sounds and innovative songwriting, but not enjoyable. Just fine.
2/5. Feels like a B-Sides collection of Beach Boys or Beatles, they are fine but I would rather change it to one of the other bands.
3/5. A unique and one of a kind album. I learned what Cowpunk was so that was cool. Somehow it feels like it is not trying at all but also trying too hard. Still good enough for 3 I think.
1/5. Yeah sure, indie rock. Woo. Idk, instrumentation is cool but it’s not engaging. I gave it three listens too just in case. Like, I just don’t care what they’re singing about.
3/5. It is a rocking album to listen to but it falls off near the end and on The Sage. I want to enjoy that song but I have no idea what he’s saying, it is badly produced. All the piano/synthesizer instrumentals slap though.
2/5. I am only going to listen to this album once. Sure there are some good songs but this is insane. Like, if this was a band that tried wildly different genres it could super enjoyable but I can’t tell 20 songs from each other. Not a 1 for the ambition.
3/5. A pretty solid pop album, lots of talk about sex but otherwise an enjoyable listen. Don’t think it’s perfect but it is fun.
3/5. Okay this was pretty fun. Airy and jazzy with some rock. Might spin again, it would nice to listen to all the way through again.
3/5. An enjoyable rockabilly album with some great hits and some definite misses. A lot of average as well. Not bad. A point up for influence.
3/5. This is kind of a protest album apparently. It’s got some chill and danceable beats with great riffs and melodies. Think a little more oomph would have benefited this one.
3/5. Not a bad album but don’t think I’d throw it on as often as a 4 would. It is quite good, don’t get me wrong, but as engaging in the latter part of the album.
3/5. A pretty fun grunge album with accessible songs but not enough for a high rating. It’s just not unique enough, mostly feels like it could be better but the lack of trying is the draw.
3/5. Not any bad songs but not something I’d listen to on repeat or go out of my way for again.
4/5. Okay honestly, an album I must of missed out on when I was really into 70’s rock. This matches all the correct notes, maybe some misses, obvious radio singles, but overall a pretty cohesive and original album. Might be a 5 later.
2/5. Steely Dan is not great. It feels like they are trying too hard to be different. They could make decent songs but they change key for no reason just to sound unique and jazzy. I appreciate the musicianship but it’s not enjoyable music. Giving it 2 because I did like their more poppier stuff.
3/5. Bopping beats and the instrumentals were the highlights. Might go up to a 4 later but sticking with 3 because the lyrical songs threw me off. I honestly just wanted more synth.
3/5. This one may increase over time but I’m sticking with 3 because it was good, the songs were catchy, some beautiful, but it didn’t keep me super interested. Many of them flowed into one another and I was done with the album when I thought I was only halfway. That’s not a good sign.
2/5. Yeah it was okay, two songs on the album were great. The rest were not memorable.
4/5. Crazy story behind this one that truly elevates the listening experience, however it was still pretty banging even before that. The title track alone brings this one to a 4. It’s not a 5 because the second track is a little slow at times.
3/5. It’s got some pretty great songs but if this was half its length and just an EP, it would be great. Just some songs that sound like other ones and aren’t unique enough to stand on their own.
2/5. A decent collection of short, punchy tracks that I don’t remember at all. It’s nice but I didn’t feel anything really.
2/5. I don’t know, I think this one is just overrated. The first song and the midway song are pretty cool bangers but not even his best stuff. The rest are just half-decent to unlistenable. Production is great but the music has much to be desired. Only giving it a 2 instead of a 1 cause I’ve heard worse.
3/5. A solid metal album but a little too long with not much variety throughout. I’d pick about 5 I’d listen to often and the rest not necessary.
2/5. Most of the album is a miss unfortunately. There is the first song, a little of the second, and most nice sounds throughout. Lower than average for sure.
1/5. I just don’t like post punk I guess. Not memorable and just noise. Wish I appreciate it but doesn’t feel like there’s much to appreciate.
3/5. A pretty fun one to listen to, lowers in quality near the end but overall a good time.
2/5. Not bad just kind of background music to chill and study to.
3/5. Really appreciate the mix of genres but it’s not a repeat listen to me. Not lower for the obvious infuence and innovation this album provides.
5/5. Not every song is perfect but the best ones really do stand out. An awesome collection of rock songs that are rarely skippable.
3/5. A solid pop album that I had no complaints about but didn’t stand out enough for a 4.
1/5. Honestly, even the hits were not interesting. I usually remember at least something from the album but there was nothing to gather from this one.
3/5. Maybe a little controversial but not a perfect album. Some definite misses and even some hit songs are skips. It’s not bad just not awesome.
3/5. A pretty solid album with some unique songs and catchy ones. Will maybe come back to this one at a later time.
4/5. Honestly, the more I listen to this album the better it gets. The chill low bass is what drives this album, with some nice rhythmic and smooth riffs and beats. The lyrical content will take some time to digest but if it’s excellent, this could definitely be a 5.
2/5. Some fun songs but nothing super interesting, many sound quite similar and it drags on at points.
3/5. The three singles are truly awesome but the other songs are not memorable at all. Wish this could be higher but it’s just okay.
4/5. A super relaxed and well-sung album. The silly songs and side bits matched with the sad and emotional pieces really drives the human aspect of this record. It’s beautifully haunting.
3/5. Sure, the first half of the album is quite repeatable then the second half is nothing. Plus even the first half are not the best songs, just some good songs.
3/5. Some important work here with progressive lyrics. The songs are catchy somewhat but the musicianship isn’t the highlight. It’s good songs overall.
4/5. This album grew on me the more I listened to it. The songs are super catchy and it feels a lot like punk without coming off as entitled from a white dude. Plus the instrumentation is really clean and well produced.
3/5. Not a perfect zeppelin album. Lemon song to living loving maid is not super fun. Everything else is a banger though. Thought I would like it more but it feels like it’s missing something.
4/5. Not a perfect metal album with some misses but Black Friday and The Conjuring are great as well as most of the other songs. Fast and angry, short and sweet.
4/5. A rocking psychedelic country trip. The guitar work is fantastic and the rhythm section goes hard. Groovy and jazzy at times, this is a good musical experience front to back. The last two songs don’t hit as hard which keeps it from a 5 but a high 4 for sure.
3/5. Some really beautiful songs in this one but most of them are pretty forgettable. It’s a solid one, just some filler for sure.
2/5. It’s a nice collection of songs but it doesn’t hit right. Sometimes feels a little too pretentious. Not bad, just doesn’t work for me. The mixing of genres is the highlight for sure.
5/5. A raw, feel-good album with super original and amazing songwriting. Everyone feels so strong as a member of the band, it’s really hard to find a fault in this one. Some days it’s a 4/5 but this is hard to bring down.
3/5. Dark and depressing themes, especially for a man who dies 2 weeks later. The title track is really good but there are some definite misses throughout. Some blend into each other, as is with most Leonard cohen songs.
3/5. I can see the appeal for sure but it’s not amazing. There is a swagger to the music and the instrumentation is the best velvet underground stuff. The issue is the songs are not repeated listens. You get what they’re going for after the first time. Best song: White Light, The Gift
4/5. A truly vulgar display of power. Honestly if this album was tighter and didn’t have a few songs for filler, it might be a perfect album. The aggression drives it so much I want scream with them. Best song: Walk, This Love
4/5. I’m not a huge reggae guy but Exodus was a pretty moving experience. You can feel the sadness in each song as Marley tries his best to convey his campaign for peace. Some classics for sure but even the other songs are repeated listens. Best song: Exodus, One Love
3/5. Honestly a much better album than I was anticipating. It is a little long and boring at times, but the jazzy aspects give it that twist of surprise. Best song: Better Off without a wife, warm beer and cold women
4/5. I want to give this a 5 just cause of the uniqueness but some are definitely skippable, especially the last song. It still bops though and is a fantastic record nonetheless. I never realized how integral the instrumentation was to Byrne’s voice, they work so well together.
3/5. The first half of the album is really good but it falls off a little on second half. The heaviness and other-worldly nature is what drives this. Some beautiful songs mixed with a little drawn out songs. Best song: Matty Groves, Reynardine
3/5. The first half of the album contains some very important and danceable songs. The second half is a little less fortunate. Also, as innovative the Comfortably Numb song is, hard to beat the original. Best Song: Take Your Mama.
5/5. Just an awesome collection of iconic singles and jams that still sound fresh today. Not a bad song on here, great front to back. Fogerty’a voice is one for the ages and the band’s instrumentation meshes so well.
