Scarborough Fair - Know and dig already. Powerful closing. Own someday
Dug the album considering I'd historically found AC to be a bit of a gimmick act
Talking Heads' entire catalog is great! Remain in Light is a masterpiece. I recognize the critical hype of Talking Heads: 77 and have a hard time accepting it as more than 3.5 stars. I try to listen as if I was exposed to this in 1977, amd think that it was a "you had to be there" moment. Good for a casual listen.
A classic. There is not a thing wrong to be found on this collection.
This took me by surprise. My knowledge of ZZ Top was hostorically 80s ZZ Top. This album is a banger!
Not bad, but not an album that I feel I needed to hear in my lifetime. Maybe had I listened to the Mussorgsky orchestral piece prior to "get this." More like a 2.5 rating from me.
This album surprised me. Being an on the fence Wilco fan, I thought that I wasn't going to enjoy it. I'd give it 4.5.
As someone who is generally hasn't gravitated to house & trance genres, I semi enjoyed this. It's worth a listen or few. I'd give it a 3.5
I really dug this! I had previously never heard of them. I learned while reading up on them that Michael Franti fronts Spearhead. Very reminiscent of Public Enemy. I'll add this to my collection.
I've never been able to digest Tom Waits but I respect his artistry. I cannot give this a 1 becuase of it. Am extra star for the fact that this album wasn't completely unlistenable for me, it had some decent moments.
Solid! 5 stars!!
This album is perfection.
Fully enjoyable listen. Tin Tin Deo is a personal fave.
I spent the greater part of my life dismissing The Band as overrated having never fully sat down with their music. After giving it my full attention, I can see/hear what people recognize as nothing short of great. Five stars!
It was better than I expected. Starts off strong. A bit long winded and bloated. I'm glad that I listened before I died, I don't know if I'll be running to listen to it again. If it was cut shorter it would be a solid 4 or 5 in my book.
This surprised me! I had never heard of this artist. I didn't know what to expect. Fully dug every track!
This album commands one's attention. Initially I was at 3, by the en ofthe album a 4.
Having only known Supertramps later hits & Brrakfast in America, I wasn't expecting much from this. I enjoyed the jourmey & listen.
Im torn between 3 and 4 on this one. This was my first listen of Jamiroquai outside of thier "Virtual Imsanity" song. Even that song, I sum up as entertaining at the least. Very reminiscent of Stevie Wonder.
This was a strange and enjoyable listen. Went back and forth between 3 and 4 stars. I'd rate betweem 3.5 amd 4.
I will never understand the hype of this album or Cheap Trick in general. They are a fun band at the least. I forget that I've seen them live and what I do recall is that they were fun. But I don't see them as much more than that. I had to give this album 2 listens and that's that I've given it 2 listens prior, I know my parents played the shit out of this too, and It doesn't click for me. Ive tried to see the greatness of this album, and I can't. Perhaps I had to be there? At the very least, I'm glad that I gave it a listen so that I can give an opinion on the hype, but this albums borders a 3 for me.
Great album from a rather underrated group!
Man, I had a hard time with this one. Entertaining at the least. Had to hear before I die? Not sure. 2nd go trying to give this group a try and still not sold. More like a 2.5, but it had enjoyable moments so I'll go higher.
Ive been wanting to get into these guys since this album's release... why not yet, I don't know.
This album is one of the most important albums of 2010s. Musical journey from start to finish!
Great album. More of a 4.5.
Damn good album.
Amazing album from start to finish
CCR is great, and can begin to feel redundant. This was a good album, almost worth of a 5, but more of a high 4.
I like Peter Gaberiel, Phil Collins, Prog, yet never got into early Genesis. This was an enjoyable listen, though it felt bloated at moments. More of a 3.5 for me.
This album ws better than anticipated.
So many memories that this album brings up. I'd give a 3.5. A fun album and notable for it's impact in the mid 90s, but far from great/a masterpiece.
Great memories of fhis album. Could be 4.5.
I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.
I'm a fan of Stooges. I recpect Iggy Pop and somehow always wrote this album off. First time actually spending time with it, and I find it nothing less than great!
I didnt enjoy this
Ended up enjoying more than I thought that I would.
I've never been able to get into The Smiths. I groaned internally when I saw this as the next album. However, I found myself enjoying this album. More like 3.5 stars. A bit less maudlin then their other albums.
Fairly middle of the road. Pedestrian. 3 stars.
