First one is one I previously owned (until my brother stole my albums and sold them on eBay). Anyway, this is a true classic. One of the first hard rock albums. Child in Time starts mellow and roars to a great guitar solo (think Stairway to Heaven). Speed King lives up to its name, there’s a bit of a fall off with the others but still solid songs.
20 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. Don’t understand what’s groundbreaking about this one. Sounds like 60s hippie music with the occasional avant-garde noise track. I want music to take me in a journey, I just can’t figure out what direction this is going in.
I know I’m supposed to like Bowie but I can never quite get there. The lyrics don’t make much sense to me but maybe that’s me not understanding. A bit sleepy at times. Like Ziggy a lot more. Changes is a great song tho.
Seems unfair to give this 2 stars because it’s ‘not my thing’. It doesn’t really stand out from a thousand other talented female leads. Lyrics are intelligent but the music is just filler.
Heard a few Verve songs before but not from this album. Deeply introspective. Not exactly a pick-me-up listen with slower brooding songs. You’d have to be in a certain mood for this one, a mood I’m not often in. Well done record but not one I’d buy.
