Just the worst.
An amazing final statement that is both reflective and hopeful. It is possibly slightly overrated because of the fact that it came out two days before he died, but still an incredibly strong last record. "Lazarus" is a top 10, maybe top 5 Bowie song.
No album has any right to have two ballads as big as "Tuesday's Gone" and "Free Bird."
I know this is an unhip answer to 'favorite Steely Dan album,' but I think this is the strongest collection of songs they ever put out. "Barrytown" is an underrated classic.
A very good album built around 3 great songs.
More important than great, but still pretty good.
When the ballads are too frequent and the pitching up of the vocals take over, it can be a bit of a drag. The classic double record that should've been one. But that one, hot damn.
This is the crossover Metallica record, and there are good moments, but this loses a lot of what made Metallica special for me.
Totally new to me. I can see how this would've been a really unique synthesis of influences and sound at the time, but since then, others have done it better.
A classic from my childhood that holds up incredibly well.
A very pleasant way to spend an hour.
Not even close to their best work.
The best Who album by a country mile.
I’m more familiar with their earlier stuff, but this was excellent.
The best or second best Zep record.
A lot of fun, a little too long.
Why would they pick a shitty duets album to represent one of the best bluesmen of all time?
A little too long for what it is, but what it is is fucking rad.
Fantastic. Utterly inspiring.
An incredible record of an incredible moment.
The bonus tracks take this from good to great. "Suspicious Minds" is the best Elvis song, don't @ me.
The bangers are there, but there's a lot of chaff to be cut away to get to them.
Just the worst.
Solid, but unremarkable.
Incredibly of its time, but not dated.
What else is to be said?
Very high highs, very low lows.
A really fun album I should've have ignored for years.
Interesting enough, but should be half the length
A true classic.
A transitional Beach Boys record, and one that is very pleasant, but not in their top 7 or 8 LPs to me.
A cromulent pop album that dies in the final 1/3.
Prog rock bullshit, but good prog rock bullshit.
Perfect from top to bottom.
Fine, but nothing exceptional to my ears.
A shambolic classic.
Their best post-reunion album, but still too slick.
A classic, but needs some diversity in tempo.
Top 5 Christmas album.
A classic, but doesn't reach the highs of the 1st or 3rd records.
