Easy listening, some songs would definitely go in a chilled/dinner playlist. Lyrically great too but the style/genre is just ‘not my bag’.
Enjoyed this for a long time. Lo-fi jingly jangly songs about real things and real life- vocals are sincere and vulnerable but have impact, great stuff!
Dance music like this appeals to people like me because the songs are structured more like pop/rock with clearly defined sections and melodic elements. I really enjoyed this and would definitely play it again for party background music or just when I want something upbeat but not ‘sing-a-long’
Brilliant album - angry, joyous and political nu-metal. Bucks trends, challenges conventions and brings a lot of head banging, screaming fun along the way. Not too be taken too seriously but not to be dismissed either!
Neutral milk hotel, the Beatles, arcade fire all rolled into one- not as good as any one of them on their own but a very pleasant sounding result!
Meh - wasn’t for me - voice grated on me and nothing about the song structure gripped me. Production fairly crappy too
It started better than I expected - middle of the road dirge. I made it to track 8 (Mr Cab Driver) before bailing, pretty atrocious as the album continued. Could have been a decent EP but he dragged it out to 13 tracks? Shame on you Lenny!
Better than I expected in all honesty - ogre battle in particular! Solid 3.5 but getting a 3 on here
Not on Spotify anymore cos he had a fit about Joe Rogan talking about Covid. Seems like a tear, didn’t listen to it, 1 star, would not return
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this, another solid 3.5. It’s definitely getting just a 3 though cos , ya know - he was a paedophile🤷🏻♂️
Some great tracks with strong social commentary from the time. I like hip-hop but I don’t love it and this album was very much ‘of its time’ for me.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. Really catchy riffs, discovered plenty that have been sampled on other works and it was really easy to listen to.
I get it, it’s like real-life Spinal Tap - objectively not good though.
Meh, decent enough but nowhere near as good compared to hounds of love
Decent, amazing voice, nice traditional folky sound - couldn’t connect with it as much as other solo folk artists as I couldn’t follow the ‘stories’ as well as someone like Dylan or Donovan. Songs were also a bit meh
Objectively good songs but not for me. I don’t like the arctic monkey style vocals which date it significantly imo
My first experience of ‘why didn’t I know about this before?’ - great classic 70s rock - reminded me of Big Star - brilliant!
Nice, lovely to listen to and potentially would get a 4 if I give it a few more listens - some really classic and recognisable riffs. Jolly nice!
Good album, can’t believe it’s on here rather than #1 record as 3rd isn’t their best - some brilliant ones like O’Dana and Holocaust but overall average
Meh - not into funk-rock really - didn’t do it for me
Not something I would likely go back to in a hurry but poignant, social commentary is fascinating and his voice is amazing
This one blew me away! Obviously the man is a legend but I had no idea how accessible some of his work could be - I thought it was all crazy free-form Jazz but this was carefully considered and beautifully put together. I listened to it with a coffee when doing my emails and it was perfect in that setting - experientially it was perfect and for that i would have to give it my first 5 star but I know that isn’t objective so it gets a very strong 4.
I loved this album - it might be over the top but this is the first time I was really taken aback at the quality of the album - it’s not perfect but it’s a 5* from me - a new find forever!
Better than I expected, easy to listen to, great background music when cooking and tidying etc. no bangers but no stinkers
