I mean I've listened to this album many times, it's one of my favorite. My father introduced Stevie to me, and I've loved it ever since. It's catchy, heartwarming, easy to listen, memorable lines & melody. It's a great introduction to soul music. It's a classic album for sure.
TPAB (To Pimp A Butterfly) literally was my first ever full album listening experience back in 2020. I mean I could talk for literal hours about this album about the details, but people have already dissected this album for years, so I want to keep this review simple. This album is hip-hop mixed with jazz, funk, neo-soul, and many more. The production on this record is pretty unique, I don't know how to describe it, but like it doesn't sound like your average hip-hop album, and it's pretty refreshing and new, even after 2 years of listening. The album only have 3 catchy songs, Wesley's Theory, Alright and King Kunta, but that doesn't mean the others are bad. Besides those 2, the songs on this album was designed to be sort of on the back, so we can focus more on what Kendrick is saying. In this album you realized why he is one of the best rappers alive, the lyrics, his flow, and his voice style changes throughout the album, his rapping skills, it's stellar. With his story combined with the incredibly lavish production on this album, you just don't listen, but you also feel the experience on this record. I think this album lives up to the definition of masterpiece and it totally deserves the title.
Foo Fighters's debut album is not near a masterpiece, but it's still enjoyable. It tells a story where Dave Grohl is at after leaving Nirvana. It's also my first time see this side of story about Kurt Cobain, and it's about his girlfriend, Courtney, who may be the reason why Kurt was addicted to drugs. Some of the songs sound like Nirvana a lot lol, not that I'm surprised. It's not as hard-hitting as Nirvana though sadly, so I don't understand why would I listen to this when I can just bump In Utero or Nevermind. But if you want to listen to 90's rock album, this one is definitely what a 90's rock album sounds like.
Never heard of her so I was excited to listen to her work for the first time and it was great. I love her voice, goes well with the Soul on this record, it's a vibe. I could totally see myself coming back to this album, if you like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, you'd like this album.
I've mix feelings on this record, on the other hand it has beautiful songs such as Candy Says, Pale Blue Eyes, and After Hours, but I also feel not as interested on the other tracks as those 3. It's not bad, it's just not really appealing to me, it's still enjoyable though. What Goes On could've been much shorter and the three continuous tracks' story (from Jesus to I'm Set Free) are basically a guy getting enlightened, which is again not an appealing story to me. To sum up, I like some of it, and the others are kind of meh to me. Maybe in a future road trip I might play this album just for the vibe.
The whole experience felt free and quirky, but sometimes those quirkiness are hit or miss for me. I do enjoy some of the songs, and that's the main factor for me. I guess you could get a really creative rock album and it sounds refreshing if you hear it for the first time, but on the other hand, you get this weird singing style, odd beat, and kind of messy. I appreciate the uniqueness, but I don't dig this album much. The last part on Ladies sounds like she was casting a spell lmao.
I grew up in 2000s and electronic music has evolved a lot. But this record sounds interesting for a 90s album. I think it ages well, I don't think I have anything against this record, cause it doesn't tell much. I'd say it's decent and kind of unique compare to nowadays formulaic electronic music.
I like it a lot, his voice is so laid back, their songs feel so punk, so free, and it's easy to listen, definitely gonna add most of the songs on my playlist. It's apparently Folk Punk Album which I've never heard of, and I would like to hear more!
So far on my listening experience in this website, the albums just don't miss. I don't think some of them are a must-listen album, but a good records nonetheless. This album is amazing, each song is unique, love the instruments, it feels very psychedelic. I was working on my homework while listening to this, and each every track caught my attention, the sound on this album is very interesting and surprising, love it.
I like it, a few miss, but great songs on the first half. Kids is a definitely a classic even though back then it was so overplayed.
I'm going to be honest with you, I'm a sucker for this 1950's music era, especially with Sinatra. It's very dreamy, melancholic, pleasant on the ears. I Imagined listening to this on a balcony on Paris where I could watch Eiffel Tower on 10p.m after having a fancy dinner.
This album feels surrealistic, I like a lot the songs here, really defines the music era back then, would love to hear it again
This record is so refreshing, I really like the old 80s hiphop sound, definitely has some bangers, it amazes me that there's a great white rapper before Eminem lol.
It's pretty sad to hear the context, the sound from the opening to the ending is beautiful, this band showed well the other side of the industry and I definitely would listen to this album again
I've never heard people talking about this band before, but this band apparently has 7 million monthly listeners on Spotify which is kind of understandable. In this particular album they have a couple of massive hits and I actually enjoyed it, they were catchy, uplifting, and just hard rock. Although, there is a lack of variety on this record, especially on the slower songs, where it were just unnecessarily long and that's a big turn off for me.
I have mix feelings on this record, at first hand, this is a very fun and humble album, it is a mix of European folk and country, and I could imagine myself driving around on Oregon with my F-150 Raptor while also enjoying listening to this album, even though I'm Asian lol. But on the other hand, that is pretty much it. There is not many things to be really said about on the music except on the last track, I quite enjoyed it a lot, but the other tracks were barely indistinguishable and for Celtic Rock (which is honestly my first time hear that word), I don't hate it, it's just not my go-to music either, I prefer more like contemporary folk style like for example, Bob Dylan.
