Absolutely a great band, i started listening the them in the early 80s watching and listening to them mature into a more melodic band. Not one of my favorite albums of the band but far from their worse. This band still rates high in my book
What a great album. I've listened to this when i was a young child of. A lot of nastalgia for me. Probably the best Solo album of all the beatles
Quite a few old favs from this album. Blister in the sun, gone daddy gone and kiss off! What a fun album, i will be revisiting this one.
This album started off slow for me. After the 3rd song it really became a winner. Other than wonder wall I've never bothered to give this band a listen. That changed today. These guys can really groove, the something is good as well as musicianship.
This was hard one to get through for me. All in all it's just not a sound that i get into. No wow factor going on. The only song I listened to on repeat was Seductive Barry. A few of the song were over produced. There was nothing to sing a long to. I felt it tried too hard to be a cleve lyrical revelation.
Anything Nirvana is great in my books. This album: Stripped down and bare, represents the rawness of a band coming out of a punk background! Bonus!!! Alex Grey famed artist for Tool did the album artwork!!!
I loved this album and band, reminded me of early punk except these guys can actually play!!
The first album generated that i could not push past, I found the playing repetitive, the vocals absolutely terrible. No melodies. There are simply no redeeming qualities for this style of music.
I've never given much of my listening time to reggae music. I like what I've listened too. Very nice groove.
Early ska! I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Listening to this album i heard how they influenced future bands in the 70 and 80s. From music to vocal styles.i had s few favs already and even picked up a couple more that appealed to me melodically and lyrically.
Didn't care for it.
A great band. Musically top tier talent. A great album. So many great bands came from this one group like ELP and Foreigner, not to mention the amount of bands that they influenced.
I did not enjoy this. It was hard to follow. I understand they were on the forefront of progrock, but this had way too many distorted elements of jazz, classical and rock. It all sounds like everyone in the group is playing a different song at the same time. Not my bag. Musicianship they're off the charts. It's all too flamboyant and egotistical.
The Bergers rival any bands harmonies of their era, they're masterst of sounding like anyone else in each era they performed in. The Beatles, the beachboys etc. This album is full of sappy sad songs. The guys can sing. Innovative they are not. With that i give this a solid 2 stars
I don't plan on handing out too many 5 stars. But Sinead hits on every level. She sings, composes, writes and produces her own music which I might add is damned good. Her haunting voice with simple melodies. She had to balls to stand up to the Catholic church way before it became a trend and almost lost her career for it. If iIcould give her a 10 I would.
Trent Rezner is an incredible writer, performer and arranger. This album I'm not a big fan of. I do enjoy plenty of his other stuff. There's a big difference in this album from his other stuff.
I'm not sure how to catalog this. It's both soothing and catchy. I'll def add it to my regular listening. Musically i really dig it. Vocally incredibly smooth. Sexy music.
Excellent album one that really put them on the charts. Greg Rollie is one of my all time favorite vocalists. It wasn't long before he left Santana to start Journey as keyboards and vocals
Lots of good songs on this breakout album. Exceptional musicianship. Good driving music
Could not make it through. Old style rapping. Making little to no sense. Music was good, if i could rate that by itself I'd give it at least 3 stars.
I found this album early last summer it's been on repeat since.
Post punk, gothic. Although this album is their breakthrough album. The bands music style is a little too gothic for my tastes. Too dark and dismal.
Ok not me
Tried. Could not make it through to the end.
I cannot stand this band!
It was ok. Nothing really great about it. Sounds like they might be a good live band. Sometimes that energy doesn't come through on a recording.
Incredible. I can hear how this band could have influenced other bands. Punk Rock with a lot of emphasis on the rock side. I really liked this album so much that I dove into their first. This will be added to my list of favs for the new year.
This guy has a story. I've always enjoyed JB.
I'd give this a half and half. It's a good mixture of rock, folk, blues and a wee bit country. Some of the songs on this are obvious hits others a bit dated and boring.
Surprising great! To be honest I went into listening to this with a closed mind, "Rap!", I found myself really enjoying this.
