Great album, defining for its genre
Nostalgic, I know all the tracks from my father wearing out this album, and musically elite. Harmonies always top notch, and gotta love a band the has most of its songs sung by the drummer.
I can respect the nature of the album, and like the theatrics of Meatloaf - Fight Club, you know? The cultural significance is likely lost on me by being generationally removed. Fun in principle, but I probably won’t spin this album again for my own pleasure.
I mean, I appreciate the musicality, but I think I’m influenced by his other, more stripped down guitar-based tunes, which I love. Some songs are genuinely great, but my preconceived notions keep my from loving this album.
Never been much of a Bowie fan, I think because his voice is quite different and music is not ur typical pop fare. Taking the time to go through Heroes has definitely expanded my appreciation and knowledge.
Fine enough. Something I’m coming to realize is that I really don’t come close to grasping the canon and evolution of music. This album probably represents some major link in the development of and influence in more contemporary, indispensable genre/band. And because I can’t see this interconnected matrix of growth, most albums stand alone in my mind - and this album stands alone as fine enough, not gonna add any of these songs to a playlist.
Maybe 50 years ago (crazy that 1975 is almost 50yrs ago…) Master Race and Africa songs were progressive and inclusive, but it made me uncomfortable. The rest of it - loved it. Imaging a concert where the band is in a small venue, low ceilings, no stage - band is same level as audience, and amps are ear drum busting, beer-sticky floors.
Not my jam.
Hard rocking, good first record.
I prefer the patois and meandering pace of Jamaican reggae, but this is aight.
Probably a big r&b album in its day, but not my kinda music. I do like the bass and percussion in these songs.
Dope. Super dope.
Not so bad. It deserved to sell more than gold status in Monaco.
Great blues album, super enjoyed it.
Never used to like Elvis Costello that much, but he’s grown on me over the years.
Liked it better than I thought I would.
I dig this album. Wish I could let the kids have a listen.
Vocals recorded in the 1940s. Like this album.
Amazing. Pivotal for my youth and a big album at the time.
This album was dogshit. Some high points here and there, but couldn’t drown out the ridiculous storyline that needed to include a snippet about Uncle Eddie finger banging the protagonist. Who’s Next should have completely eclipsed the need to listen to this “rock opera”. Two genres that I have yet to see belong together.
The blues influence and great vocals make this album pretty timeless despite the kind of dated sound. She good.
Liked this album back in the day, love it now.
Better than I thought, cool Bass throughout
Just not that into it.
I liked it better than I thought. Musically pretty expansive - Lou reed could never sing.
Not too bad. I can’t imagine some dudes getting together to make this - long and kinda weird songs, not a single lyric.
Not bad. I liked the jazzier jazz.
It was alright. Some decent songs.
I could listen to this alright.
As I sat down to listen to this album, I had an uncontrollable urge to shot gun 4 beer, clean my hunting rifle, and tattoo an eagle across my back. ‘Merica, fuck yeah.
I think I love this album. Turns out.
Good background jams
Intense. Not bad.
Pretty cool overall
I think these guys might be the reason why I love hard rock and blues-laden guitar riffs. RIP Bon Scott. Thanks Brian Johnson for giving black sensations up and down my spine.
Some good songs in there
The guitar work was cool. I actually didn’t like the vocals as much. I like Rod, but felt like it was a less well done attempt at some led zepplin.
This album feels legit. Like a dude with a mullet, handlebars, denim sleeveless jacket and def Leppard t-shirt. This fuckin guy drives an I-roc z28 t-top, crushes beers and helps old ladies cross the street. Chicks love him and guys wanna be his bro. Fuck Mötley Crüe and Poison, those dicks can’t roll. Def Leppard sets the bar.
So cool parts. Not gonna be a go-to for me.
Yeah. It’s 2000s Indy rock to a fault. At times hazy, ethereal, others it’s listener friendly, but forgettable. I wouldn’t mind revisiting it, but it likely wouldn’t occur to me.
I enjoyed this album
Good album, some throw aways, but big songs stand up
I like these guys
Some tracks are amazing, others less so.
Raw Power, baby
I like the stripped down, guitar style music on this versus bryter layter.
Time after time is a great song
Very good album
It’s surprising to me that these stooges albums were being made way back in the 60s and early 70s
Some big songs on this debut
This is a great album
This is a great album
