Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols
I liked the anger but the actual music behind the lyrics I found to be pretty boring. Maybe I'm used to this kind of rage in music now because people like the Sex Pistols paved the way after a pretty chill time.

It's very nice. The sound of the instruments is smooth. It reminds me of the Sim City soundtracks that I like, this sort of music must be the inspiration. I don't think it's an album I would listen to again necessarily but can definitely see myself putting it on for a dinner party. I don't know if that's an insult.

Lady In Satin
Very mopey. I don't think I'd listen to it again. Very emotional, but not the emotions that I want rattling around my head I guess. I do want to like it though.

Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)
I liked it. It had a vibe. I used to write off that 80s sound but I think I quite like it now. Lots of cool sounds used interestingly. Still not sure if I'd have it on regularly but a couple of stand out songs.

Close To The Edge
It's a good sound and I can see how it has inspired a couple of my favourite bands like TOOL with the unusual rhythms and dueling guitars and even The Decemberists for long epic songs. I don't think I quite liked the sound enough to want to listen to the length of tracks there. I don't think they put their best foot forward with the beginning of the 18 minutes track. Somewhere halfway through I started to like the harmonies they had and it sounded a bit more coherent.

The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses
Liked it on the first listen. I think I'll listen to it again. There's a rather unique, ethereal quality to it.
I didn't get around to listening to it again today -_- But I can see myself listening to this album again in the future.

Axis: Bold As Love
This is so good I can't believe I haven't properly listened before. Listened to it again straight away. The energy is really good. All the instruments sound fantastic, and have a consistent sound throughout but none of the songs blend together.
I listened to it three times and I'll be checking out other Hendrix albums.

The Köln Concert
Good music, unlike anything I've ever heard. Like a Jazzy Ludovico Einaudi. It certainly doesn't sound like it's from the 70s.

I was initially dreading jumping into another prog rock but the riffs and noises they were making were really good! (When they weren't doing their own radio space opera). They seemed to be having a lot of fun which comes through.

If I Should Fall From Grace With God
Not my jam. I found it difficult to take in the lyrics, which I imagine is the main focus of this music.

Pretty cool. Better than I expected. I've always imagined Jay Z as more refined/corporate or more of a collaborator. Guess I'm not quite old enough.
Standout Track: Takeover

New Wave?! NEW wave? But what's this?! Trumpets?! Funky rhythm guitars?! Samba drums?
Evidently I don't know what new wave is, but this is amazing.
Standout Track: Calling Captain Autumn

Rust In Peace
It's pretty cool. It's just not quite my vibe, which is odd as I do like Disturbed. I don't like the guy's voice too much and a lot of the tracks seem too similar.
Standout Track: Dawn Patrol

This is the first album from this list that I'd already listened to. I'm a fan of Sigur Ros so I already knew that I'd like it.
Fantastic album. I hadn't appreciated how old the album was, the range of sounds that they managed to get in there was amazing. I also looked up the lyrics for the first time and now I'm a bit traumatised.

The hits are great but the songs that were new to me were just kinda, well....
Standout Track: Dirty Diana

Yeah that was pretty good. I think I find a whole album of this middle of the road stuff fairly dull but this was more interesting than I'd given it credit for when I filed it away in my brain somewhere.
Standout Track: Narcissist

Dullllllll, couldn't finish.

I liked this more than I thought. Maybe it's because it's sunny right now but feel like I'm in a hazy US street. The album is short in tracks but the whole vibe is very cool.
Standout Track: T.V. Eye
