A really good example of a more mainstream new wave sound. Great social critique with nice dark undertones.
A fun album with catchy songs. Though, the songs don't really stand out from each other.
A remarkable comeback to formula. Fantastic dark blues with utterly beautiful themes. Morrison has some of his best works on the album, and also not to neglect Manzarek too. And oh, Kreiger does some great work and Densmore does his best work on this album. Ok, so all of them are on top of their game on this album. The album has some of the band's greatest songs. A strong recommendation!
The album has some nice piano and drums parts. The album's story and themes are somewhat interesting and forward for its time. But Reed's style is not appealing to me. To me, he is just a mediocre Bowie.
A fun garage rock album, but it can become a bit overwhelming. The album should be listened to when moving, either through dancing, walking, running or driving, but sitting still is doing the album a disservice. Funhouse is a protopunk album and is somewhat too much of that, but fortunately, there still is a late 60s garage rock feel.
A fun psychedelic album. Enjoyed the tribal sound.
The music sounds good, especially the piano which is a standout, though overall it is somewhat simple and repetitive. The lyrics are personal, as ripped from a diary, but it is too personal, at least to me. The thing that brings it down for me is his voice. It feels as though he is trying too hard. The comparisons to Nina Simone have some ground, but he is far from her level.
What is going on… should I be doing this? Living, yet only managing to survive?
Pop and all, listen to the call! For this here is enough! Certainly not their best, not even the greatest of their pre-studio days, but man what a fine time! Somewhat sloppy in some aspects, but you can still enjoy yourself listening to this sweet scouse music!
Sweet and enjoyable folk album. Nice soft rock elements. Though overall not an overtly memorable album, but still a good one over all!
