This isn't something I'd normally listen to, but it has a very nice vibe and I enjoyed it.
I've never listened to Kate Bush before and it was far more experimental than I expected (an opinion which I suppose was based entirely on her common sounding name). Very interesting soundscape and much of it doesn't even sound dated -- the percussion samples are pretty bad, but the synths are quite nice and the mixing is great. The song structures are also inventive. I'll be revisting this for sure.
I listened to this album thousands of times in college, so it's hard to be objective. Obviously a classic.
Amazing guitar work of course. The album is more bluesy and folksy than I expected, and very listenable. It's just not really my style and not something I'm likely to revisit.
Musically, this is a super interesting and high energy album. The bass lines are awesome and the guitar riffs are great. For me, the singing ruins the wonderfully experimental musical expression on almost all of these songs. I wish I could find an instrumental version of this album.
What an incredible work of art. I know a couple of these songs in isolation, but never listened to the full album before.
It's not that I just couldn't get into this album, I actively disliked most of the songs. I couldn't even listen all the way through most of them. Two stars because Puff Daddy was able to make something great from one of the riffs, so I guess there's something good in here that I'm not hearing.
What an amazing album, and such a unique sound. Very happy to have discovered this.
Very enjoyable album. The vocals were surprising to me, for someone known for ambient soundscapes, but a lot of these songs are quite catchy and have a strong emotional component. I listened to it twice through and I'll be listening again for sure.
Spotify just removed this album unfortunately, but I was able to listen to about half the songs before it disappeared. Nice, easy listening. Not really my thing, but I definitely appreciate her voice.
It's okay, reminded me of Simon and Garfunkel. I liked a couple songs but most were pretty boring.
This is like if the Rolling Stones were doing too little or too much cocaine, instead of just the right amount. Not a fan except for the last song which has an instrumental bit that's kind of cool.
Great album, nice hooks, strong melodies with sparse and consistent instrumentation. Crazy to hear in retrospect the influence they had on SOAD's vocalist, Serj Tankian, not to even mention all the punk bands that came after them
Very chill and enjoyable. I love the instrumentation, especially the bass but the synths are great too. Glittering Prize is just a fantastic song by any measure.
It's good but it just sounds very generic to be. I guess that's a testament to his success. Not something i would revisit.
I tried to listen to the whole thing to understand and appreciate this, but it's really just like nails on a chalk board to me.
I was always a big fan of this album. Kanye's last great work before his descent into madness.
This takes me back to the days of Orbital, Juno Reactor, Crystal Method, Antiloop, etc. I never got into Underworld back then, but now I wish I had. Great album, maybe not consistent all the way through, but there are some very strong beats on here.
Great stuff, fantastic rhythms.
This is excellent and groundbreaking stuff, which is something that's especially obvious after seeing him perform with Trent Reznor and understanding his influence on so many other artists I love, like the Smashing Pumpkins. I'm not really a fan of his voice, but it fits the android theme and the music is phenomenal.
Good music, if a little corny. Better than I expected from this era of rap, but not something I'd revisit.
Boring, generic pop rock. The hit single is great, but I'm not sure the rest of the album is worth listening to.
Catchy pop melodies and interesting instrumentation. Round & Round is brilliant. They were a large influence on many of my favorite 90's bands. Really enjoyed this and will be putting a few of these songs into my rotation.
Nice piano, but I didn't like the drumming or bass. The worst part is the mix which has too much high end and all of the most annoying sounds are far too present. At one point all i could hear was a cymbal making constant noise.
I wasn't familiar with most of these songs, but they all have a utterly distinct sound that I only identify with Jimi Hendrix. Brilliant musician, though this album was a little hard to get into, especially starting with that weird UFO soundtrack. There is some incredible and timeless stuff on here though, like Spanish Castle Magic.
Every song sounds the same, but it's a good sound. They got upon a winning formula for sure, but I don't have any reason to listen to this album ever again.
Very original and contains a ton of interesting musical ideas. There's a lot of bits that makes me go "I wonder how I could use this idea in a different context?" Just inspiring stuff.
These are amazing soundscapes, I think of it like the abstract art of the music world. Not a bad song on here, and still holds up after all these years.
Chill rapping in French, great flow.
This was very different. I was a little dumbfounded initially but found myself really liking it.
This is awful, but also so strange that I couldn't pull myself away. I never want to hear it again, but I don't regret the experience.
It's listenable, but I didn't hear anything special to warrant inclusion on this list. The single is catchy of course, but the rest of the album is very standard, even derivative.
This album's reputation is well deserved.
It's okay, but nothing particularly special. The second to last song is a really great instrumental, but the rest are just fairly pedestrian rock songs. Maybe groundbreaking at the time, but it doesn't seem to hold up.
Very interesting, but not something I would listen to again.
Reminds me of many soundtracks and musicals. Great singing.
Amazing album, the basis for a lot of great 90's bands that came later. The raw energy on this album is unparalleled, and the music is unconventional and interesting.
I like Crucify but that might just be nostalgia from hearing it so many times growing up. Still, it's an interesting sing with great dynamics and interesting instrumentation. The rest of the album just sounds very cookie cutter and rather boring. She even sounds bored singing it.
Nice elevator music
Just not feeling it.
The bass lines are too good.
Amazing album, very diverse styles and compelling melodies and rhythms. I haven't even dived into the lyrics, but it's musically excellent.
