Definitely influential, but also highly overplayed. Good album but I'm pretty tired of it.
Willie is great, but not so well suited for singing jazz classics. I'd really have to be in the perfect mood to sit through this one. I'm not sure I'd consider this terribly influential, either.
Radiohead is definitely an acquired taste for a lot of people, but once you've grown to appreciate their style, you can can never go back. Truly unique musical inspiration. I would argue that other albums in their portfolio are more important, but this is great nonetheless.
Took me a long time to appreciate these guys, but they (and this album) have really grown on me. One of the most important albums of my generation for sure.
First album I hadn't already heard, and I really enjoyed it. It needs a few more listens to come up with a definitive review.
Somehow I had never heard of Mr. Martyn before. I'll definitely listen to more of his music in the future.
The good songs are really good. The remaining songs feel heavily dated (like late 80s chipper and wonderful), which is ironic since the message is dark. Tracy's a talented musician and singer, but outside of a few songs, I don't feel like this one holds up too well with time.
I WANT to like these guys, but they just don't grab me.
