Good groove trucking along throughout. Almost a jam session feel.

I rather disliked this half assed attempt at being cool. It’s mostly noise that makes you want to skip to the next song
If you like Metal this album is foundational. Non stop licks that will force your head to bang. Who would win a fight between Lemmy and God? Trick question. Lemmy is God!
I get where this album has been influential to other albums and artists I do like. But this album isn’t just sullen. It’s boring.
Quintessential. Starts kicking from the get go and doesn’t stop being angry. The start of some big changes in my musical tastes when I was young.
A good friend of mine once said to me If music could have a texture this album would be smooth. True dat! In the middle of the Disco craze this album dared to feature bluesy sounds, glorious guitar work and licks that make you feel chill as balls.
I found this to be droning. If you want to hear a good album in this genre try Lovage:Music to Make Love To Your Old Lady By
I forgot how complete an effort this album is. After 20 years I was hardly listening to these tracks individually. But as a start to finish listen it’s a gem with some introspection into 2001/2
Great early rock n’ roll record here. Foundations for later hits to be sure. Especially good record when sitting poolside in the sun.
Bright sounds of silver sun pickups is typically pleasing. But a few songs are downright skippable as well.
Not sure if I just didn’t get it, maybe this is one of those albums I’ll like after another listen. But I didn’t dig this too much and at time felt agitated with songs.
I read somewhere George sued Sony for not promoting this album enough. Blaming it’s piss poor sales on that fact. But, and I say this without prejudice, it just sucks.
Very nice debut. Mostly likeable with two great tracks. Not bad.
I am ashamed to admit I had no idea the David Bowie produced this album. I’ve listened to it so many times in the past. After reading that and listening again I notice it so much. Landmark album.
Quintessential Metal !
I love Radiohead, but this album feels a lot like b sides and jams. I recall they put it in some sort of protest fashion against the music industry. Pay what you feel . I didn’t pay.
Meh. I like this band but this album only has two good songs. Jammed right in the middle of some pretty boring stuff.
But know Patti Smith was cool. Part of the hip scene there in the 70s But this album sucks. And it’s not that I don’t appreciate raw sounding music that is not too over produced: in fact I love stuff like that usually. It’s that Smith’s voice is grating. I hate it like I hate Joni Mitchell’s similar bullshit.
I can hear this albums influence in other albums to come out of California soon after. Not bad.
Not a big fan of Moby. But there were 4 tracks on here I have heard a lot more than I realized. Felt like I was watching a montage of the credits of several movies
Interesting. I’ll have to give this another listen at a more appropriate time for this type of stuff
What a banger! This debut album is just stellar. The guitar work is some of the best the world has ever been treated to.
U2 have 3 good albums. And this is one of em. In a lot of ways this album set the tone for the stadium concert experience of the 90s
I respect that this may be pretty progressive for it’s fine and place of release, but it didn’t really do it for me.
You can really tell Brian Wilson was not involved much by this time. I kinda remember this album, but with no real great tracks it’s no wonder I didn’t remember much.
I wasn’t familiar so much with this entire album. Just knew a few tracks. Really enjoyed it. This apparently was a bit of a comeback album.. He still had it then, and he still has it now!
The music this albums sends your way is so excellent at times, and so off at others. I really like the guitar, keyboards and percussions arrangements, but the vocal arrangements of Steely Dan don't do it for me.
Huge fan of Petty, and this debut album was a great start. But it gets much better as he matures into the 5 star artist he becomes.
This was good stuff. I like the horns and swinging mamba sounds.
Winehouse’s Black album is so good that I bought it on vinyl. But this Frank album feels like she is either still honing her craft. Or whacked on on smack and not noticing what a hot mess of tracks she was laying down.
Enjoyed this when it came out. Was a good stroll down memory lane
High quality jazz right here folks.
Blechhh. This blows. Even their one good song…wasn’t. And they even managed to make a Talking Heads song skippable.
I hate this album and I hate this band.
This album is a masterpiece. Headphones, or a good sound system and no distractions is recommended.
The combination or Wilco, Bragg and virtually Woodie Guthrie combing to create an alt country album is a charm Liked a lot
I hadn’t listened to this whole album since its release. U2 were way better then than now. And 2 stellar tracks in New Years Day and Sunday Bloody Sunday
meh. couple things were ok. but kinda droning on
Ground breaking stuff.
I hear the foundations of some of my fave artist in this scene on these tracks. But really hated this album at the same time. One good track as far as I’m concerned in Grey Lagoons Only get 2 stars because it influenced some others to make good albums later
Kates sound is pretty unique, well at least it was back then. pretty solid effort
I dig this
The good stuff when it comes to early punk. A classic banger
Jazzy, growly, I can hear Waits moving towards Bone Machine in this album. Big fan
Love bobs early stuff before it got to “cleaned up” in the studios
Now this is the kind of royalty I can get behind. This swings man. Dig it.
Two tracks carry this album. Buts it’s not too bad of a coffee house record
HO-LY-SHIT! I knew about this performance is the documentary Beware Ginger Baker. Which is a must watch by the way. But I had no idea it was this superb. I gotta find this on vinyl now.
It’s an epic length effort. A dark and brooding piece at times, but it rocks with a lot of good tracks.
Good but not there best
My parents owned this vinyl, and I have a copy on my records shelf too. Willie went out on a limb here and made a gem.
Did not enjoy really. Sounded like b tracks pulled out of an old notebook
Croon away kid. Croon away
I knew two songs and wasn’t all that impressed with the rest
If I could give 6 stars this album would deserve it. It’s a god damn masterpiece. Song writing and emotive performances at their finest
I like Elvis. His stuff pretty easy to have on and chill
This shit was deadly. Only gets 4 because they got even better later. This is iconic in its genre. Smasher
I find Ryan’s stuff very generic. Boring
Glam Rock staple. Bowie delivers and stellar piece of work here.
Meh. Is pretty much how I feel about REM all the time.
Big fan of Tom Waits. But this album is not on heavy rotation at my place. Experimentally it’s good. But regular listening it’s not
Solid One of becks better complete albums
I’ll preface with…I can’t stand Joni Mitchell and her pretentious wandering around the scale bullshit. So this album lost me at track 1. But it in fact got worse. It never knew what it wanted to be. Folk, gospel, rock, Gregorian chants…like what the fuck? Garbage
Plenty of good folk here folks Worth it alone for Me and Julio
A well crafted and produced effort. There is a sunny disposition and charming tone to this album. Great album to have on when out on the deck for an afternoon.
Couple of decent tracks on here. Tosh, I read, thought he was more talented than Bob Marley. But this being his best effort would be proof he had delusions of grandeur. Still a good album, just not great
Zeppelin seem here to be pulling from their unfinished songbooks and going into the studio to jam. Still great stuff, but for Zepplin only mid tier work.
One of REMs best. If not the best. Melancholy but enjoyable.
No sir. Did not like. Experimental…should have spent a bit more time gestating in the garage. Poop-de-doo
This was the start of something really great for Eminem. But this album is still full of tracks that are raw and the title track is a top all time rap song. But mid way through it can get repetitive and monotonous for a bit.
Steady jams all through. Horns, drums, consistent pleasant sounds Like his voice too. May have to grab this on vinyl
wasnt bad but some of jacks stuff can get to you after 30 mins hes talented but not wide ranging
More good rock from the Whites. But I just can’t OD on it. It was best listened to split up in two halves
Didn’t dig it. Another album that seems influential. I can hear its sounds elsewhere soon after this came out. But it’s not pleasant to listen to the whole things in album format. Meh
This album was mega influential for good reason. This legendary album lives up to the hype and if you haven’t heard it yet you’ll want to get on er! Hip to the Hop to Top is my faves list.
Never heard of this before. Pleasant surprise. Really liked how eclectic this was without being annoying or dis-harmonious. Reading about the project was interesting as well
Quintessential What can I say that hasn’t been said before. No record collection should be without.
A sober tone for sure. But it does an amazing job of capturing a feeling that was prevalent for many at the time of its release. A few songs make me want to punch someone in the face. In a good way.
if i could give thios 6 starts i would. one of the best albums of all time in my opinion
The array of sounds that this band can bind together into a cohesive piece of music is astonishing. They are worth a deep dive for anyone who enjoys popular music that doesn't suck.
Meh. Good enough to not slip. But not good enough to add any songs to my library.
Folk classic. Several good and two great songs here
not bad, but not alot of relisten in there for me
absolutely one of the top 25 albums of all time. the story telling, the dramatic themes, the incredible guitar and keyboard work. unreal piece of art. if you have never listened to this album from start to finish then i feel bad for you.
It’s the beginning of the end of good music right here.
I can’t review this any better than it’s been done 1000 times before. Top 5 all time album. Come onsies
I know this is considered gold, but I just can’t do it. I don’t like hardcore improv jazz. I just don’t. Love the more structured jazz of Sonny Rollins or Coltrane
Couple decent tracks here Can hear new wave starting to show out of ska and punk
There is a copy of this on vinyl in my living room. An excellent example of the genre. Put it on. Chill.
Never heard of this dude before ? And I like this genre. Pretty decent stuff for me to have missed it all these years
This vinyl is on my shelf. It’s a defining piece of work in this genre. It trucks along through. Always driving that rhythm
Couple of good tracks besides the big hit, Son of a Preacher Man. Which is a tremendous song stand alone
The revolution will not be televised! From this iconic start comes a classic that is a must listen, not only for any hip hop/rap fan but for music lovers in general. Historic album
I hadn’t really listened to a nick cave full album before. But had heard some stuff Pretty depressing at times but not in a terrible way. Smashing pumpkins or Lou reed managed to pull it off. And so does NC and the BS here
Interesting at times. Experimental in a bad way at other times. As a huge fan of Ween I have to say I heard some similarity in some ways. If I could give 3.5 stars I would
Some 5 star stuff here. Mostly 5 star. It’s just so much to take in you need an entire weekend
you like hip hop...you like this
I am still amazed that Sometimes even after 50 years spinning round this planet I can come across some music this well recorded and produced. And have never even heard a whisper about it. Not saying I loved it. But it’s certainly got its moments. And as mentioned. Is produced really well. The balances and sound levels are really well done.
its good, dont get me wrong. but im not a rabid SR fan, as so many of thier fans seem to be. meh....
