A Night At The OperaQueen
A great live album. A wonderful performance and you can feel the atmosphere. Terrific.
Didn't enjoy it quite as much as I thought. Also, it's quite a short album.
Fantastically random and varied. I did notice a massive difference in listening on a proper hi-fi setup though, compared with more 'standard' listening via PC.
Wonderful, but quite a long album!
A very enjoyable listen!
I must be missing something, but couldn't work out why this album was on the list! Middling pop with not much to commend it. 'Lovefool' is OK, but given it was played to death in-period, that feeling still carries over to now.
Random in places, but enjoyable nonetheless. It's a 3.5 for me, if half marks were allowed!
Not a fan.
It was OK. Thankfully Bjork's vocals didn't dominate too much.
Classic Dylan. Enjoyed running through a whole album of his - it's been a while!
Some classic tracks in there, but quite a bit of random stuff too. Still a fun listen though. Would be 3.5 from me, if we were allowed half marks ;-)
Quite a robust album! Certainly demands your attention.
Quite enjoyed that. Has clearly influenced more recent artists and sounded quite modern in places.
A more enjoyable listen that I was expecting. 3.5 stars...
Really very good. Perfect album for a Monday morning really!
A lovely listen.
Started well, with the first track I was thinking this is going to be a good album. Then it went downhill for me. 'Danny Boy' being a particular low point. There are better Cash albums out there, so don't judge him just on this one miss!
Felt very 80s! Some good electronica and synth work going on.
Unlistenable and intolerable to my ear.
An enjoyable listen.
Really enjoyed that - opened my ears up to Pulp. Quite melodic in place and shows there's more to them than 'Common People' which still seems to get overplayed all these years on....
Great vocals and lyrics. What's not to like?
Well I gave it a go. Not really listened to much Slipknot previously, and that's not about to change after 57 mins and 57 seconds of this album. If you removed the lyrics and 'singing' style and just listened to the instrumentation and arrangement, I'd be a lot happier! There's a lot of skill going on there.
Quite enjoyable, certainly uplifting and a different musical style.
A wonderful listen!
Enjoyed the vibes of this one! Also enjoyed reading about the artist as I'd never heard of them before.
Really enjoyed that, having listened to some of his contemporaries but never Monk himself. Great background working music in my book as well.
Not my thing. Just don't get the vocal style at all.
From a Fleetwood Mac fan, Tusk doesn't quite hit the mark for me. I understand the vision of it not being a 'Rumours 2' and think the variedness is there. There a number of cracking tracks within the album. However, reviewing the album as a whole it appears non-cohesive. As such, It's a 3.5 for me.
Have never really got on with the voice. This album hasn't changed that. Sorry Kate!
An interesting listen and I certainly learnt something, as I didn't realise he was the original "Everybody's Talkin'" guy!
A great album, top stuff!
Some good bits here and there, but pretty random! Not sure I'd place this in the best of their work, from the other Who albums I've listened to.
Enjoyed discovering a bit more of Supergrass. Some of it was a bit middling, a 3.5 from me.
Enjoyable to return to this one. Peak Muse.
I can see why people like Numan, and I can see why it's on the list. Just not really for me.
Very jolly! Liked it, having never heard of him before.
Not too shabby. 3.5 stars from me.
Funky. Very very funky!
Mad for it!
Some decent tracks in there.
A wonderful listen. Although there aren't any of Wonder's better known 'hits' on this album, it just shows the depth of ability.
Didn't particularly grab me this one.
A random, rambling procession of noises. No thanks.
Some classics here, intermingled with less successful shouty numbers which spoil the overall album a bit for me. 3.5 stars.
Short but sweet.
Not a Public Enemy album for me this.
Enjoyed that. Some undiscovered Sinead right there!
A bit wishy-washy. Another album where I'm not quite sure what it's doing on the '1000 best' list....
Quite good in places, but banal in others. Overall, a miss for me.
Quite enjoyed that. 3.5 stars.
Enjoyed that. Punchy and upbeat.
A wandering tirade of musical randomness. Very disappointing.
Not that great.
An enjoyable listen. Sounded quite Smiths-esque, which I'd not picked up from Suede previously.
Some better tracks at the back of the album, but overall - not for me.
OK-ish. Sounded like they were trying too hard trying to make a point, failed in the process and the album suffered as a result. 2.5 stars.
Utter rubbish. If this was experimental, then I'm glad. So we can mark this down as a failure and move on.
OK. Middle of the road.
A bit better than I thought it would be!
So-so. Probably the wrong genre for me, but I can't really see this album's place in the 'best 1000' list....
The trouble I have with Joni is that all songs tend to sound too similar. So a 4 gets knocked back to a 3.
Enjoyable, although not quite as enjoyable as 'This Is Hardcore' for me.
Enjoyable in parts, but there are better Smiths albums for me.
Classic Muddy Waters. Love it.
OK. Some tracks that have stood the test of time, but sounded a bit cliched in places.
Liked this, having never heard of the band before. Including 'Reward' which I recognise and clearly didn't know who it was by!
Enjoyed that more than I expected, as I'm not really a fan.
Did not enjoy.
No standout tracks for me there. 2*
Bloody terrible! Best summed up by another review I saw, "sounds like the soundtrack to a musical I don't want to see."
Pretty good, 3*
No thanks. Is zero stars not an option?
Just classic rock & roll. Brilliant.
Better than I thought it was going to be!
An excellent listen. It might not trump Ziggy Stardust for me, but tremendous nonetheless. 4.5*
