Fabulous production. The drum progressions are incredible, haunting storytelling despite being largely instrumental. Awfully tragic, yet still so good, but is still extremely heavy - especially the final track.
Revolutionary for its time, but it's rather generic and boring when viewed from today's perspective. Excellent as ambient music but not so much when listened carefully.
A joyful, jovial, and relaxing album to listen to and it's one that I quite enjoy. Gilberto's voice is incredibly soft and it really fits well with the Brazillian-jazzy hybrid instrumentals, as well as the carefree, innocent lyrics that invoke tranquility and serenity.
Chill, relaxing, a little repetitive, but Sinatra's fantastic voice makes up for it.
Good rhythms, very thrash-like. Clear satirical approach to contemporary Christian metal just by the album title alone, lyrics are as expected - sinister, ominous. Enjoyed most of the guitars (especially the aggression), but the vocals just aren't my cup of tea with it so fuzzed and unclear.
An album with flashes of trip-hop mastery, but certain tracks caused it to fall from a 4 to a 3. Solid for a debut album.
Reminded me of the Dead but got a little repetitive. 3.5/5.
Effective as noise filler, but certainly not for gratified listening.
Really enjoyed it. Somber tone and lyricism were great, but can be slightly repetitive (as do most albums)
Too many "wahhhhhs" for me but at the same time, it really rocks. Good energy off simple chord progressions.
Fun Christmas classics.
A nice double album with diverse tracks.
One of the best albums I have ever heard.
Fun, lax and iconic jazz.
Better than expected.
An album that's a breath of fresh air. The sounds are strange and enigmatic in a way that makes this a great listen.
Way, way better than I expected it to be. Most glam rock is appearance over substance, but this album showcases both and its weirdness is something that I believe influenced many other artists.
Suck excellent lyrics and storytelling. The instrumentals didn't catch my eyes too much but it's still a great album nonetheless.
Enjoyed the techno sounds but the lyrics were forgettable. Would serve well as background music.
Sci-fi themed, psychedelic Byrds? Love that, although the songs towards the end got a little dull.
Not great but not bad either. Cool techno sounds but still a little boring.
Prog rock masterpiece. The guitar composition is just incredible as well as the general instrumentals. YYZ is a great instrumental to rock out to, with songs like Tom Sawyer, The Camera Eye, and Red Barchetta all being excellent prog rock songs. 4.4/5
Incredible. Probably one of if not the best live albums of all time.
Although I didn't understand the lyrics, it was a fun listen.
It's a cool album, but the lack of clarity and structure really lowers the enjoyment of this album. Perfect noise filler though, the best one so far.
An energizing album with some great riffs.
An album that's brilliantly dark and harrowing. Nico's vocals were great in this, amplifying the haunting lyrics. Reed's non-existent vocal range was also perfect for the songs on this album. Heroin is a perfect example of this, as he sings this 7-minute masterpiece in the most monotone yet dark way possible. Great album.
So electric, such fantastic riffs by Van Halen. I'm a little hesitant, but this is getting a 5/5 for now.
It's strange and there's definitely something that I didn't get, but songs of muffled shouts and conga drums really aren't appealing. However, some of the songs with guitars are enjoyable.
Some lovely samples and electronica.
Iconic 90s album with some excellent songs, but some of them just aren't my cup of tea.
Excellent prog rock.
Great jam and fabulous guitar work. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea but I enjoyed it greatly.
Some nice britpop.
2.5/5 - Just don't understand some of the songs. There are gems in this album, but overall, it's not great.
This album is labeled as noise rock and yeah, it is indeed that. The grungy sounding tracks were somewhat enjoyable, yet it is not enough for it to be a 'good' album.
Such an awesome pop album with incredible musicianship.
Quiet, melancholy, intimate. A very deep album that seems too much like a poem at times.
A very diverse with surprising experimental progressions. Enjoyed it a lot.
Repetitive? Probably. Sounds good? Definitely.
Culturally significant and is some great hip-hop. Some lyrics haven't aged well but the message is still clear and rings true to this day.
A very interesting hybrid of Irish folk and rock, but it works well.
Still one of the best metal albums I've heard, and a relisten proves that yet again. Everyone knows "Battery" and the self-titled track, but "Orion" just makes this album even better as an incredible instrumental track.
Energetic. Electric. Soulful. One of the best live albums I've ever heard!
Minimalistic and quite pleasant to listen to, but it sometimes lacks substance and can be dull.
I understand its role as an important album in history, but this album is just painful to listen to. The clanking, rustling metal plates along with other strange assortments of sounds was unbearable and from a musical standpoint, this is truly the worst album I have ever listened to.
Classic brit-pop album! Some nice guitar work at the beginning, and after "Alright", the jammy tracks come on and are quite nice. Slightly repetitive, but the rhythm changes sort of make up for it.
Good vocals are always expected if it's The Temptations, but the funkiness was something that's great and a little unexpected.
A pure acoustic album that’s soft and melancholic. Don’t think there’s a single bad song on this album, and although the sounds and rhythm of the songs can be overly similar at times, it is still a wonderful album to listen to.
One of my favourite Kinks albums.
Too much dialogue at times but the songs themselves were not bad.
Surprisingly, it's much more enjoyable than I thought. The songs were interesting with various sections on the longer songs and although a little avant garde, it's one that was fun to listen to with nice guitars and other idiosyncratic sounds.
The beats were great, the lyrics were incredibly powerful and is overall a great album. Not much to dislike here.
I've known this album for a very long time now yet I've never listened to it. After all this time, it's good to hear what the full album sounds like - fun, soft, groovy alt-rock that's catchy and pleasant. Overall a pretty good album.
Great hip-hop album. The aggression is so prominent which I loved - my only criticism is how the vocals sometimes sounded distorted.
The most "Hee Hees!" I have ever heard in an album! All jokes aside, this is a great album with so many hits and great songs.
Awesome acid rock with some real trippy songs. Not sure about the tone of the album but hey, it was recorded in 1967.
