I mean, listening to this in 2023, you can't not hear it's influences on the last 50 years of popular music.
not my jam, but undeniable influence
I know this in an influential record, and I like Dylan, I just can't listen to the whole thing straight.
this is not my jam. i don't know enough about the genre to assess. i tried. i read about the dude, looked up his hits, tried those again. just not my cup of tea.
I don't usually like Iggy Pop, but the Bowie influence on this is huge.
i don't much care for the Dead, but this was a good album
Hard to believe all this was on their first album. The IRS label years were really amazing in terms of content. the lyrics don't make sense until they do. everyone in the band really made a solid contribution to this album. stipe gets so much credit as the singer, and his voice defined a genre of music, but bill's drumming, mike's harmonies, and peter's jangly guitar bring it all together.
i can see how franz ferdinand cites this group as an influence. the title track was good, but after awhile it was 80s carribean influenced noise
bolero was especially excellent. surrounded by so much talent on this album!
Just not my jam for an entire album
hello nineties! lots of memorabilia, but in 2023 doesn't feel as groundbreaking as it was, which is hard to keep in mind for so many of these albums
I feel like this album dominated my early childhood memories... radio, mtv, so many songs that are burned into American culture.
As a person, I think Morrissey is dreadful, but I have always loved this album, having worn out the cassette in middle/high school. It has aged surprisingly well
I had a hard time listening to this in one sitting. I've heard this type of music before and appreciate the talent that goes into it, but just couldn't quite get into it.
Catchy earworms, can't deny production value and talent, but I'd prefer to not listen to this.
One of my favorite of all time. I don't need to listen to it to hear it, but I will.
