This album was a vibe, that I feel started dwindle down around the back half. Solid 70s rock overall

This album is an absolute classic. A hallmark album that helped transition us from the classic era to the modern era of hip hop. Does the album hold up today though? No not really. You can sample this bitch to death tho
Didn’t listen, but I heard it before. Twas a solid album from what I remember. Not quite my preferred type of music though. Dreams is the clear highlight.
First time hearing this thing all the way through, and it definitely lived up to the hype. This album has a cool stripped down lo-fi type feeling to it that I really enjoyed. Highlights: something, I want you, here comes the sun
The album is solid, it does nothing wrong really. The 80s was saturated with post punk & new wave, and I feel this album doesn’t do enough to stand out. It does have a dash of psychedelia that gives it a bit of a kick, but that’s about all it has to offer. No songs were outright offensive. I want to praise the instrumentation on haha I’m drowning and second head. Treason is clearly the highlight of this album with its catchy melody. I also wanna praise sleeping gas for its background droning, something about it really did something to me. If I could this would be a 3.5
I thought the first half of this album was phenomenal and had a bunch of solid tracks such as Dear Prudence, ob-la-di ob-la-da, and while my guitar gently weeps. I thought I was jumping into a damn near perfect album till I saw the length of this bad boy. The second half contains some of the worst I’ve heard from the Beatles, however their worst isn’t all that bad in general. Overall I feel like this album was almost too psychedelic at some points, which really lost me. Still a pretty solid album overall though
Was too drunk to take notes 😂 solid album though, a lot of unique sounds for a punk record, especially for the time
I think this was a great album. Didn’t have any issues with any particular song or anything. This simply isn’t a form of music that I care for. No song was bad, yet I didn’t really care for any particular song. I think it was musically solid album, but it would probably be nothing more than great background music for me
This is the definitive disco album imo. This is the album that first showed Michael Jackson’s maturity as an artist, and man does it deliver. These tracks got me grooving nonstop. The funky baseline on the track “get on the floor” is one of my favorite baselines ever and it especially sounds amazing with Jackson’s vocals on top of it. The title track is also a huge highlight for me, I really love every song on this project, and I never get tired of listening to it. Definitely in my top 15 albums of all time. 👍
Simply a modern classic.
Holy shit this was long and pretty boring sonically. I thought the lyrics were pretty thought provoking though. The only highlight for me was the first track.
Believe it or not I listened to this bitch twice in a day 😂 was originally gonna give it a 2, but upon my second listen I realized there really isn’t anything wrong with most of these songs sonically, but most of he songs just don’t interest me and leave me bored.I don’t mind some of the noisier songs like jellybelly, but some like love are a complete miss. Might be a hot take, but I also don’t care for the softer songs such as tonight tonight, I just don’t prefer the pumpkins in this style. Instead the songs I enjoyed the most were the ones that had a good balance of soft and noise such as 1979 and muzzle. This album has only like 4 songs in my rotation, and I never intend to revisit the whole thing after this. My rating would be a 2.5, but I’ll be nice and round it to a 3. Also Siamese Dream >>>>
Never listened to any Doors album all the way through, but I always enjoyed some of their songs. With that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this album. Something about Morrison’s distinct and dark voice coupled with the off putting organs on these tracks really did something for me. I typically really dislike long tracks, but man I enjoyed every second of Light my Fire. Point taken away for cringe lyrics
This is just great, timeless music. Don’t really know what else to say honestly. (Also forgot to take notes cuz I was high as balls yesterday)
Every issue I had in melloncollie is nonexistent in this album. This album is a lot more consistent, as they found their style and stuck with it all the way through, and it really works. I don’t think there’s any song I dislike on this one. I was getting ready to say the first 3 tracks were so strong, then I saw the rest of the list, and realized it’s just the whole album that’s strong. Favorite songs: cherub rock, mayonnaise, rocket Can we get some MBV next?
Man oh man, I asked for MBV and they delivered. One of if not my favorite band ever. This album is really interesting to me, it’s for sure my least favorite of their’s, but I still overall really enjoy it. I haven’t listened to the album in a while, and I remembered that it’s a more ambient focused album, which makes it less relistenable to me. Nevertheless, the songs “Only Tomorrow”, “If I am”, and “New You” are the only songs from this album that I return to, and they’re some of my favorite songs of theirs period. The rest of the tracks fall into the very ambient realm. The thing with MBV, you gotta give them multiple listens. I HATED loveless the first couple times I listened, but overtime it became my favorite rock album. You gotta get your ears adjusted to the noise. Also you will ascend if you listen to while high. This album also has some interesting lore. It took over two decades to release, which is nuts lol. The guitarist and songwriter Kevin Shields worked on several collaborations with ambient artist Brian Eno after releasing loveless, which definitely influenced the sound of this album. I’m conclusion, this album rocs and I can’t wait for y’all to listen to more MBV
Not really sure what to say for this one. It’s not their best work, but it’s still pretty solid. The band hadn’t reached their distinct sound that they’d start to develop with their next project, but the songs here are still solid. “A Forest” being one of their most staple songs from this era. Overall a solid post punk album. Favorite songs: play for today, in your house
I typed a whole essay for this joint, but it disappeared somehow, and I’m not redoing that shit the TLDR: sonically good, but structurally weird album
I don’t really like this. I strongly disliked the first 3 tracks, but somehow enjoyed the next two tracks (March of pigs & closer) quite a bit. The tracks afterward were either a miss or just unremarkable to me, with the exception of “hurt” which was another one of the songs that I actually enjoyed. The album has this interesting cyberpunk vibe to it & is super experimental, which I respect & when it hit, it hit. It just didn’t hit often enough for me.
Nothing bad here, just very unremarkable. Don’t know what else to say. It’s really a 2.5, but I’m being nice cuz the album didn’t do anything offensive.
Another collection of fantastic vocals and great ballads from Adele. It would be impossible to recreate the same magic that 21 delivered, but I think Adele followed up as best as she can with this one. I think all of these songs are rather strong, though not as hard hitting as the songs in 21.
Lot of energy in these songs, has the vibe of early garage rock and punk, but with a dash of modern complexity. I probably wouldn’t be able to tell what year this album came out if I didn’t already know. Really enjoyable album.
This album came out two weeks after Ziggy Stardust. Ziggy clears. Decent album though.
I have a love-hate relationship with REM. I do know that I tend to like their earlier works. Haven’t dived into their discog in a while, but I remember not liking anything after Life’s Rich Pageant (my favorite album of theirs). Upon relistening to this, I’m pretty sure my opinion still stands. There were tracks that I actually really liked such as You are Everything, World Leader Pretend, and Untitiled. There’s one song in particular that I really can’t “Stand” that I feel has no place in the album at all. Admittedly, the instrumentation is solid throughout, and there are some catchy hooks like on Orange Crush, even though I don’t particularly like that song. Edit: couple listens in I like it a bit better now, I was gonna go for a 2, but I’ll settle with a 3
Very soothing album. Beach boys have always been my favorite 60s band. The album really holds up. These guys have just mastered the art of making pop songs.
This album was really interesting. The first track was really dreamy, had me thinking it would be just the standard somber type album. But then the next track has a dance beat to it & is a bit psychedelic, some lean heavy into electro pop, then some of the tracks are downright trippy like “Skin”. Idk I thought this was very fun personally, however it definitely dragged at times. In the 3-4 range, but I’ll settle with a 4.
Solid album. Nothing remarkable and nothing really stands out. It’s pretty good music though.
Similarly to Bryce, I’m a frequent gazer of shoes, but I’ve never much been into the slower and more ambient side of the genre. I will say that this is one of the better of these types of albums that I’ve heard, so I hope this has opened me up a bit to the style. Very relaxing album.
I’ve heard of this group before, but this is my first time listening to them. This was not at all what I expected. There are a wide variety of beats here, that pull from a number of different genres, which was very interesting. The lyrics throughout are self-conscious and thoughtful in contrast to a lot of other rap albums around the time. Overall, this isn’t usually the type of hip hop I prefer, but I actually kinda enjoyed this one.
I was sleeping on this one lol. Very solid follow up to Doolittle. As per usual with the Pixies, there’s a lot of variety with their sounds, which keeps their albums interesting. Yet something about this album in particular feels different but I’m not sure what. Might need some more listens for this one.
I’m usually open minded with music, but yikes.
Classic blues right here. Though not my preferred genre, gotta acknowledge that Muddy delivers live with the striking baritone vocals coupled with the smooth instrumentals. I know all the aunties were grooving to This back in the day. Also I love the energy he puts into some of the tracks like “I’ve got my mojo working. Also hoochie coochie man is a wild name for a track 😂
Never heard the dude before, but I actually really liked this. Something about the strings topped with the vocal Melodies gives a hauntingly beautiful vibe throughout the album.
A lot more listenable than the other album of theirs we got.
Just a classic punk album through and through. I’ve heard it many times but never get tired of listening to it. This isn’t my favorite of the early punk albums, but it really stands out with non-traditional punk songs such as death or glory, revolution rock & train in vain.
I enjoyed this a lot actually. It did kinda feel one note, but it was good music all the way through
So we just gonna ignore the racist caricature cartoon on the cover?
Not usually one for live albums, but this might’ve been the best I’ve heard. The voice, the energy, the instrumentation, just pure soul.
This was corny as hell, but there was some groovy instrumentals in here
I still believe this album has no misses. The succession of tracks 5-7 are especially exquisite. Having some of Morrissey’s best vocal deliveries, lyrics, and some of the bands best instrumentation.
I enjoyed this one. This album is so damn laid back & chill, It legit made my morning a lot better. Immaculate vibes all around.
Though I personally don’t love this album is most others do, I fail to find an actual objective reason to not give it 5 stars. The first half is very grand, and a bit poppy, no surprise that their most popular songs are here. I found a lot more enjoyment in the second half mainly due to the songs being more traditional punk rather than grunge. Fave song: Drain You Least fave: Polly
I like this a lot. It’s just something about the surreal beats and her unnatural sounding voice that has me really immersed.
Really wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did. I’m officially a Led Zeppelin fan
I actually like this one a lot. Easily the best of the group that we got. Probably the most interesting thing here to me is the chaotic and noisy beats as well as the inclusion of guitars like on she watch channel zero. The noise plus the political bombardment of the rapping surely made a huge statement at the time. First album of theirs I believe truly deserves to be on this list.
Isn’t my jam at all, but not bad music.
At least a couple of great songs in here, but a lot of it is musically uninteresting however. Some great lyrical commentary is what brings it up for me.
pretty unique sounding album, especially for the time. This album shows the transition from traditional hardcore to a more alternative sound.
Very strange, but in an endearing way
This might be my favorite album we got yet. Pure 90s R&B goodness. No misses, just straight sexy vibes. S/O to TLC for being the only group to be able to cover a Prince song well. CAN WE GET SOME PRINCE PLEASE
MORE THAN A FEEEELING. Music is pretty decent, just not that interesting to me in comparison to their rock peers of the time.
This is such a grand and cinematic album. I enjoyed it nearly all the way through. Some songs just dragged a lil, but I’ll certainly come back to this one.
“Girls just wanna have fun” and “Time after times” are obviously great songs. The rest are just the standard 80s pop/new wave. Funnily enough, we recently had an example of a great Prince cover with TLC’s rendition of “If I was your girlfriend”. Here we get a serviceable rendition of “When you were mine”. Though the instrumentals are admittedly interesting and stay true to the barebones feel of the original song, it adds a new wave flavor. However it’s Cydni’s over the top vocal specatacle that takes away from the minimalistic magic that the OG song is characteristic for. On that note, all the Prince covers recently is like a prelude to actually getting a Prince album on here. Just give it to us already 😂
Didn’t enjoy this one as much as 2, but I’d say it’s around the same quality and is a good follow up. Immigrant song is peak Zeppelin to me thus far.
Easily the best example of a hip hop collective to date. You can tell that each of the members try to one-up each other, which results in each member having witty, memorable bars & top tier lyricism. RZA’s beats ties it all together creating a rough gritty vibe. Masterpiece.
A diamond in the rough is the best way to describe this album. Hidden beneath the low quality recording style are very meticulously written catchy pop and indie rock songs. Each song is unique and has its own identity on top of that. Fave songs: As we go up we go down, Game of Pricks
Don’t really know what to say for this one. Though not my preferred type of jazz, there’s no denying the quality.
Peak Metallica imo
Just solid all the way through. I’m a fan.
Very innovative punk for its time. Songs still really hold up and deliver a unique experience
Just punk in its purest form. Can’t go wrong with it.
So many unique and complex sounds on this. There’s a weird dissonance in the songs that make everything sound so wrong, yet it sounds so right. Legit every track is a roller coaster.
This album sounds unique today even, not even considering how long ago it was released. Brian Eno was at least 30 years ahead of his time
Had high expectations for this one & I’ve been meaning to listen to it for years, but I’m a bit disappointed honestly, most of it is pretty standard.
One of the first hip hop albums to actually deal with thought-provoking subject matter. Unfortunately, the album suffers from the outdated rapping style which sounds kinda fun on a couple of the tracks, but mostly falls flat.
I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. This album is probably the best proof that hip hop & punk could go hand in hand. Could’ve benefited by removing a few of the tracks though
This that real rock n roll right here
Chilling, artsy & hard hitting. A goth classic
So degen, but still very solid musically. I had a lot of fun with this one
This is everything I like in rock music in a neat little package. It’s loud it’s noisy it’s melodic & it’s not afraid to get experimental. This album will always be a favorite of mine
