Pretty good. First time I heard a full CCR album, and they're actually pretty good. Not a singles artist by any means.
Pretty cool to find a political hard rock/glam metal band that's also not white. Liked the singles, "Glamour Boys," and "What's Your Favorite Colour?"
It's OK. Not really for me, but it's pretty good working music.
Loved the fuzzy guitar sounds. It's funky but also hard rocky, and the combination interests me a lot more than I expected.
Lol, I guess I like The Strokes better. Seriously, though, I do like the album a lot better than I thought. "I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor" is still a weird banger, and some of the album tracks here are relistenable. Just not as good as the Strokes' debut, although maybe a relisten to that would dissuade me of the notion.
Too lit to use as study music in the background. Catchier than I expected a piano jazz album to be, and I like the little moments where Jarrett is vamping and can't help making sounds like even they can't believe what they're doing.
The back half is really good, as well as the singles and "Behind Blue Eyes." Not AS good as I remember it, though.
Damn, Nick Cave's voice is really rough, but in a good way. What a sad fucking album, not sure what to make of it. Love the shivers in Nick Cave's voice. The sonic landscape and ideas are so interesting. I can't get over it. It's definitely a 5/5 in certain moods.
This fucking slaps. Little Simz says the n-word with a hard R sometimes (not bad or anything, but definitely shocking a bit considering how American rappers do it). Again, this fucking slaps, and it might be the first non-Slick Rick British rap that I enjoyed?
It's OK. His voice is lovely.
I can't believe how annoyed I got by the end. It's OK, but kinda one-note and uninteresting.
God, I love Bjork so much. Fuuuuck, this fucking sounds so good, I literally cannot believe it sometimes, despite having heard it so much.
I like it. The alternating singers and the great variety of riffs and sounds make this a great listen. Didn't listen too closely to the lyrics, but they all felt very centered towards an idea, and I like that a lot.
This has a very specific rock sound reminiscent of the late-1960s/early-1970s, like, I dunno, flower power rock or MOD rock or surf rock something like that, in combination to like those old cowboy Western country songs. I dig it, and I love Alex Turner's voice. It's very repetitive, but I gotta be honest, I am totally vibing with this shit.
The album is OK. I like the hooks and riffs, very memorable thus far. I'm not super big on metal, truthfully. The most metal thing I listen to is Metallica. But I can definitely vibe with this, and I like the mood it creates.
Sounds like Pearl Jam, but like with a heavy pop-rock sound. I can definitely see the appeal of a band like this. This definitely is pop-punk and grunge put together, and is like a heavier version of what Green Day was doing at the same time. OK, fine, I think I love this album, it has like the jingle-jangle sound with the pop punk and the grunge, and that's pretty good; I'm a sucker for a melodic rock record, especially ones that can be McCartney-esque at times.
This is pretty rad. A lot more distinctive than a lot of the punk bands I've listened to.
It's great mood music. Love Badu's voice and lyrics, though strangely enough, it doesn't feel as transcendent an album as I've been led to believe. Weirdly enough, I feel like the album would be a little more palatable for me if it was more hip-hop-adjacent, would've broke through the monotony. The back half of the album is a lot more dynamic, though.
Love 2Pac, and this is my favorite album from him. Love the less aggressive sounds from this versus his next album.
It kinda sounds standard indie-pop fare. I dunno, it's not a very different record from other indie records of the same variety at the time.
Fun album. Not really catchy or very lyrically complex, but still liked it.
