L.A. WomanThe Doors
Fine, some strong tracks but overall too much of the same.

Easy jazz to start, and got funkier as it went (which I increasingly liked!).
The low key beats, the flows, the whole package. What more do you want?
Unfinished Sympathy is so good. The rest is up and down... don't love the later tracks after that one. Overall I get that this had a bigger impact than Mezzanine but I do prefer that album.
It's just so soaring and majestic.
It just didn't click for me.
"Stolen Car" was great, and got me excited. Real 90s alt-rock Oasis vibes. When it then immediately flipped into singer-songwriter territory, it lost me a bit. It's not currently a genre I enjoy, and it felt like the album continued to strip itself down as it went. Picked up again towards the end though.
I dunno man. It's of an era. Made it through 7 of 10 tracks and wanted to break my stereo. Did not jive.
Another case of a legendary band that I really didn't feel anything towards. It went from something really cutting edge to something that is totally inoffensive.
Listened to it twice. Loved it. Not even sure what to say.
Singapore? WTF. Clap Hands? OK, this I like. The rest? I don't know. What is Midtown doing there after a song where Tom Waits tries to sing like a dog? What a wild ride.
Very smooth, very easy. Didn't captivate me, but I enjoyed it.
Yea, I loved this. I hadn't listened cover to cover before but may not really be a weak song on there.
Wow, this went hard from track 1. Didn’t expect it, couldn’t handle it. A fun surprise, though not totally for me. Also, it was too long.
Just great stuff. Love a lot of the composition, and Morrissey's got a terrific voice. I'm surprised how much I enjoyed this.
Totally new to me, although I did play a video game that had one of the songs in it. Fun.
I… think I like Morrissey.
Fine. I dig the guitar work. Didn't need 76 minutes of it. I'd listen to a bunch of these songs in a playlist but not as an album.
Apple Music listed this as "Art Rock". OK.
It’s a bit tough to get into but it opens up after the first track into something really lovely.
I dug it.
The number of hits on this album is outrageous. The Jamaica song was pretty odd though. I think I’m for Greatest Hits Elton more than album Elton.
Always found Wilco to be a bit of a bore.
Dinner music. Better than Wilco.
So old-timey! I dunno, still thought it was kind of fun.
Really fascinating as an experiment in human sounds and vocals as instruments. I thought “Where is the line” was wild. Great vocals on Vokuro. I get that it’s not an everyday listen though. Will explore further.
I unironically enjoy this album and have for a while.
Yea the guitar riffs do it for me here.
Pretty bland generic 90s alt-rock. "You're not like all the others that's why I love you." Yea, deep stuff, Eels. I should be into this, but I just generally thought this sucked.
I'd never deliberately listened to Amy Winehouse before this. Very good. Saucy.
It’s a classic. I liked it, but I’m not running out to buy a copy.
Lie down on the floor, put this on through headphones, and close your eyes. Delightful. I don't know why this one hits where others from the era don't, but I won't fight it.
I find the rhythms pretty outdated and kitschy. I guess I just don't understand the presumed genius here. It was a real slog for me and I didn't finish it.
Yea, straight fire.
I usually just listen to Halcyon On and On, on loop. But it's not on this album.
Like the vibes.
Couldn’t get into it. Might try again sometime, but probably won’t.
It’s fine and I’ll never think of it again.
A rapper who starts an album with a line about OPEC... what a way to my heart. It's so of it's time but I have to say I enjoyed it.
I didn't love it, because I don't like the Arctic Monkeys that much.
You know what, this redeemed King Crimson. First track is a banger. Middle songs get kind of jazzy. Works for me. Could see myself revisiting it.
I was surprised with how fun this was.
I definitely love a good pop album, but for me, this isn't it.
The first tracks just floored me. Wow. Listened again as soon as it finished. Loved the abrasiveness of it, the industrial sounds, the darkness of it.
There are definitely some bangers here, but, yea.
Love this album, all the way down to the last two tracks, Shine a Light and Soul Survivor.
Classic. Love the mix of styles at play.
Enjoyed it as well.
This was kind of catchy... could see myself mixing this in during a road trip. More like a 2.5.
Interesting choice in that I think there's better Radiohead out there. Good, but not my favourite.
I liked the first track and then kind of downhill for me, despite being predisposed to the genre.
Liked it a lot. Grungy and noisy.
Very interesting opening. Had avoided Rufus assuming it would be standard singer/songwriter stuff. Obviously that’s core here but it’s made more interesting with the arrangements. Ultimately I may be more interested in the operas than the ballads. I don’t think he’ll be a regular in the rotation but glad to have listened.
Whoo... lots going on here. Lots of good stuff packed in here, but it really does feel like 4 different albums mashed together. Provides some great Wiki reading holes as well...
I can't get over the 80s soundtrack here.
Like a few later tracks. Funny how similar themes are across eras (eg suburban angst on Shangri-La).
Generally strong throughout with the big songs putting it over the top
Just wasn't interested in sitting through this.
I don't know if I loved it, but it was funky! It was upbeat! It was positive! Maybe I did love it.
For a rock album there are an awful lot of ballads on here. Felt dated. Best songs at the beginning and at the end.
Challenging to score this. Heroes is so so good as a song. I like the instrumental tracks at the end even if they’re an odd fit. I guess I’m here for it all.
A classic that's a bit dated today.
Ok not bad
I was surprisingly into this.
This was new to me and pretty cool.
Honestly a banger that I’ve liked more and more since it was released.
It's fine but a little too old-timey for me.
Wanted to give this a 4 going into it. Lovefool and Iron Man are excellent, but the rest fell just a little short.
I thought this was pretty enjoyable. Nothing stood out, but a pleasant listen.
Aside from a track I realized I already knew, this didn't connect with me. Maybe another time. Just felt a bit bland and generic.
I wanted to like this more :(
Hard to argue with this one.
I’m just not for me.
I think I liked this, but will need to listen to it again at the gym instead of at my desk on a sunny day...
I really liked it and it's no surprise given how much I like Metric and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Cool to hear their precursor.
Huh. I hated Talking Heads 77 but felt like this had some bop to it.
This was not what I expected, but in a good way.
