Nice and smooth.
Funky and fun. Didn't know Come On Eileen was on here. I like the Celtic pop vibes from the first few tracks although there are a few that just kinda blend together and are overall forgettable.
Best one so far.
It was Bob Dylan I guess. Has a couple of tracks that I liked though but like with other Dylan releases, most of them blend together a little bit for me.
Started out as very much not my taste, but then it got real bluesy and closed with Broken Arrow which had so much going on i can't call it my favorite. Good listen!
Very 2003, but love the progginess of it all with the interconnected tracks.
This... is the complete opposite of anything I would typically listen to and yet I was blown away by every second of this album. So raw, so versatile, yet so clean. Exactly what I was aiming for by doing this 1001 Albums thing - to broaden my horizons and this album here did it.
Sent me down a rabbithole that lasted several weeks to the point where I've fallen behind on this. Dark and sad, but... sensual?
Powerful and groovy. Reggae with plenty to say. Might start going into my rotation.
What a classic. First listen to this since high school. A lot of the tracks hold up but it also has its share of filler tracks that blend together. Still, this is teen rage in an album and definitely a must listen.
Interesting! Can definitely see how this is an early trip hop album. Not as blown away by it as the last 4 from this list but good nonetheless. Might change if I revisit it.
It's less Sinatra with a Brazilian flavor and more Brazilian music with all traces of its Brazilness removed and replaced with Sinatra. However, this isn't necessarily a bad thing since Sinatra puts some nice soundscapes together.
I only knew this lady because she got made fun of in South Park. Solid. The closing track felt like a mermaid's song.
Didn't hold my attention enough to want to finish it, but I did. Started with some fairy promising tracks but it kind of devolved into stomp stomp clap banjo Mumford and sons early 2010s "indie" sounding shlock.
If Sour Cream could make music, this would be it. This was the blandest thing I've heard in this journey so far. At one point while listening to the album I said to myself "this whole album sounds like something that would play at the end of a bad Scrubs episode" and I googled "David Gray Scrubs" out of curiosity and turns out "Please Forgive Me" DID play on Scrubs. Glad this one's over.
This album is powerful, holy crap. Dark. Fun. Strange. Funky. Groovy. Playful. Had never heard of this album or this act and man, I want more.
Anthony Fantano rated this as his favorite album of the 1970s, and while I'm inclined to disagree, it really is a great sound. Manages to stay interesting throughout and knows when to end. You can hear little bits of what would constitute the next two decades of rock music sprinkled all throughout this release.
I've always known about ABBA but never bothered to listen to a full album of theirs. I was honestly not expecting to have as much fun with it as I did! Although it has its share of misses and tracks that get repetitive, it's definitely a hit all around. Some of the slower tracks like "Knowing Me, Knowing You" are where they shine best, for me.
Cool lyrical content. Overall solid.
It was cool. Varied in sound way more than I thought it would, but I'm not sure what else I was expecting from CeeLo.
