I quite liked this. It seems like a predecessor to the heavier, harder rock and metal that I don't like much. It's giving stereotypical "young British rockstar". I loved the track Maybe I'm a Leo and the extended instrumentation in Lazy. Listened to it around three times abd I'll be listening to it again sometime.
Glad I finally listened to this classic. It's sweetly mellow and melodramatic. Some of the lyricism feels a little dated but it has a soft, comforting feeling. The title track is still among the greatest I've ever listened to, and I also really loved New Kid in Town and Try and Love Again.
I REALLY loved this. It sounded like a poppier, more accessible version of Horses by Patti Smith, an album I love. Heart of Glass is a track I heard before and I still think it's the best song on it.
A bit screamy but interesting nonetheless.
I love that I listened to this on New Year's Eve while quietly walking home. It has such a ravey vibe while also sounding lonely. It was really nice and spacey. I may not listen to it much again but I really liked it, especially the track Waterfall.
This was great. I liked how eclectic and witchy the sound was. It reminded me of Ys by Joanna Newsom but less consistent.
An angry classic.
I usually dislike this genre of music; I find it headache-inducing. But this was just so well-made. It has a cohesive texture while also having many eclectic sound choices to make each track interesting.
This was the kind of art album that you listen to once and really like but aren't much tempted to listen to ever again. I might though, just cuz it's so intricate.
I could listen to this forever. I am a huge fan of Leonard Cohen's You Want It Darker album and this feels just like that. Replayed twice and will be many more times.
I can see the appeal but this is definitely not my cup of tea.
This reminds me of Carole King's Tapestry with the heartbreak songwriting. It's so tender, with the lyrical sensitivity of country music. I love it, especially the songs Jo's Lament and the title track.
Groovy but not particularly grabbing.
The Wall of Sound style is interesting but I never enjoyed Christmas music.
Ahhh this is so good. I listened to it while house-cleaning and I think that's part of why I like it so much. I don't like the song Weather to Fly but I love how melodic and earwormy even that song is. A lot of the songs, such as The Fix, also feel so noirish. One Day Like This is definitely the highlight and I've listened to it so many times already.
I quite enjoyed this. I can see why it would be exceptional at the time, though the over-separation of the stereo channels is dated and a little grating. Regardless, the sparse sound is very pleasing and the record often feels like they're just playing around with what conventions they can twist. I like it.
Janis's voice is iconic, but I prefer Pearl. I see the appeal of the rough-around-the-edges production, but it's a little too rough.
This is, in my opinion, the greatest album of all time. I've loved it for six years now.
I love jazz, and this is of the more upbeat variety. It's very enjoyable but gets a little tedious by the end.
One of the greats. I love listening to this slightly tipsy, half-pretending to be a wreck.
Pleasant background music. I like how the instrumentation makes it sound like somebody is singing along to it.
Why does an Englishman have a southern American accent? 5 stars.
