I gave it a whirl, but it's not for me.
I gave it a whirl, but it's not for me.
Not bad. Would I listen to it again? Unlikely. As prog rock goes, it wasn't unbearable.
Started out as a rollicking mosh pit of fun but quickly started to wear on me. More suited for live club experience than a listening session .
Amazing album, forever associated with Woodstock. Made for summer afternoons and outside listening. Love Mother's Daughter.
Not for me. The same droning, dirge guitar on every track. Depressing. Didn't like her in the 90s, still don't.
The production on this is so specific to 1989/1990. It's a great, joyful album full of clever samples. Lots of fun, back when rap could be fun.
What an amazing album. This is fantastic fantastic fantastic. Another great road trip album, too, along with Graham Nash's.
There are some good songs on this, and I appreciate his experimental, slightly less accessible ones.
This was such a new sound when she first came on the scene, so I have to give credit for that, and her voice. It all gets a little samey for me after a few songs, though.
Old school dance music, pretty low energy by today's standards.
Loved this. It was over too soon! If I were at a live show it would've been awesome. "You had us pegged all along. Damn."
No. It's just impossible for me to get past how bored I was with the whole grunge scene in the 90s. Despite a kickass drummer.
It gets a little samey. But a classic for sure
I feel like the production on this could have improved the overall experience. Needed more depth of sound.
There's only so much Jack White I can take in one sitting, but if this were playing in a bar I wouldn't complain.
I really enjoyed this. He did a good job capturing the noir feeling. Would definitely listen to it again.
I didn't like this at all. Didn't like the vocals, music didn't have enough variation within the songs, each song just went on too long.
Dullsville. Seriously boring and uninspired.
I like the guitar and bass work, pretty boppy in places. But I don't care for the lyrics or vocalese.
Excellent songwriting. Chrissie Hynde is a badass musician.
Exactly what you want from a French pop crooner.
Apart from a couple of songs that were too straight-ahead metal for me, the rocking bass lines had me hooked. I appreciate that they use their music for political activism and not just general rage; this is exactly the kind of music you want to listen to after a bad day at work to get your frustrations out. I forgot this was The Matrix closing music.
I hate this so much. It's too miserable to enjoy at all. And don't ever make me sit through the film again!
It's a little too country-ish for me to take in one sitting, but I appreciate the music.
Hmm. I feel like the vocals let this down in many of the songs. But I really love the layered instrumentals and depth of sound.
I think I like the production on this album more than I like the songs, if that makes any sense. Having said that, most of the songs seem to be a little too slow and long. I did really like Guilt. It's too bad she wrecked her voice.
Ok, I didn't hate it. If you put this on in the car, I could listen to it. Some songs were better than others.
Come out and Play and Self Esteem were their big radio hits. That's about all I can take of this style of music.
I didn't like the first two songs, but then the album just got better and better.
This album epitomizes my issues with The Smiths. As always, I love the guitar work and riffs. I also think Morrissey writes a good lyric. However, it seems like he writes his lyrics, and then comes in and just makes up a tune that has no relation to what the band is doing, like a five year old making up a tune. And it doesn't really work for me most of the time. I think The Headmaster Ritual and Well I Wonder are the strongest songs all around.
Ok, it's a good album for the kind of music it is. I think I'm just bored of the music since it was on such heavy rotation (and still is). It's very well produced
Some of this is too honky-tonk, a little boring. Trying too hard to be American gospel or blues. But I do like a few songs. Somewhere in between a 3 and 4 for me
Maybe it's because everything sounds better through my headphones, but I kinda liked this. Better than the other Echo album.
This is the second time I've listened to this. There's nothing on this album that stands out to me or makes me want to listen to it again. But I really enjoyed Viv's memoir, and I get what they were trying to do.
I mean, the lyrics are terrible and the screaming gets tired, but if you're looking for hard driving guitar rock, this is classic.
What a voice. These are all classics and still sound relevant.
Pretty boring overall. Mainline Florida had a little kick, plus one more was vaguely interesting. Meh.
I couldn't listen to this. It was too depressing and monotone
This was like Beach Boys light, or Motown songs that needed more production. There were catchy songs here, but very boring sounds.
More subpar Beatles/Beach Boys
You know, I didn't mind this. It's not something I would listen to on my own, but if it were a road trip and someone put it on, I would listen.
I can't say that I enjoyed any of this.
Great concept album. I just found the subject matter hard to stomach.
This really takes me back! I love how in touch with their feelings they are. Some really great songs that still hold up.
I liked two songs: Damaged Goods and At Home He's a Tourist. The rest wasn't my cup of tea, but I bet Daddy loved it!
Give up the Funk is good; the rest gets a little boring after awhile. I'm not that into funk in general.
Not my thing
I like it. Reminded me of Saturday mornings at my dad's house. He'd get up and make coffee and it'd be cowboy music hour on public radio.
This is amazing. When you get a great songwriter, tight band and it all works. But I have the feeling this is the only full Springsteen album I like.
A few beautiful songs, but I didn't love it.
Overall this was pretty boring and slow. I thought it was under produced.
There were a couple songs I liked, but a lot of it was just the same song.
Ok, a lot of the tracks sound the same, and it's needing better production, but it's very catchy and was very influential.
Has that mid 80s production groove that screams summertime in France. Pretty easy listening.
Good blues. I couldn't listen to this on its own, too much blues for one sitting, but in the background it was fine
Started out strong, but I quickly got tired of it.
Super boring. Were they really under the impression these were different songs? I couldn't finish it.
Of all the grunge bands this is the most palatable to me, but really less than half of the album.
Nope. Didn't get past first track.
Didn't enjoy this as much as the other Waits album.
I enjoyed the first half more than the second, but it was all very modern sounding. Not what I was expecting from 1977 Bowie.
Solid 4, maybe 5, but Freedom is an absolute 5. Such a good voice.
Decidedly mediocre. Why is this on the list?
Not a fan of the reggae, but this was fairly inoffensive.
Too depressing for me, but I thought it was good quality.
There are a several songs that are absolute masterpieces, but I also find a lot of it boring. So tough call on rating.
I actually enjoyed about the first half of this album, and then did not enjoy the rest very much at all.
Easy listening. I'm not sure it was super exciting
I didn't mind this. It would make good movie soundtrack music.
Boring. Not even some fun guitar work. He's such a misery guts
Okay for a soundtrack, but I wouldn't listen to it on its own.
This got a little samey for me, and could've used an editor.
I started this on the plane, and was actually enjoying it, but then it started to just feel like the same song over and over...Dylan lyrics + harmonica. But then the last two songs were soooo Dylan and so nonsensical. JFK asks him how to grow the country and he says Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren, and he's got a woman who works all the time so he doesn't...yeah.
That went really fast. Easy to listen to, but not great.
I tried. I can't.
I thought On the Beach was a beautiful song. The rest of it isn't my cup of tea, but I think a lot of it is his voice. They'd be different songs with a different vocal. Five stars for the album cover, though.
Too prog for me, really. I didn't enjoy this.
This was difficult to get through.
It started out as easy listening road trip music, but I got pretty sick of it halfway through and didn't make it all the way to the end. Too country ish.
I liked, or rather, didn't object, to some of it.
There's a lot going on musically in these songs, so I appreciated some of the musicality. But overall, not a fan.
Really not my thing
Um, pretty Dylanesque. Sounded very samey.
I don't know how I've gone through life not really knowing what meatloaf sounds like, but this was not what I was expecting. Very theatrical, not at all what the cover would suggest. It did get a little much for me after a couple of songs, but it's fun.
First of all, no album needs to be this long. Having said that it's quite ambitious and not terrible. It was just far too much.
This was much like sitting through a reggae album.
Solid 4. Driftwood is now stuck in my head.
Better as a soundtrack.
I loved this, which was unexpected.
I can't listen to much of this. But if I liked thrash metal, this seems like it would be good.
I love the full instrumental, but get tired of his voice, so there's only so much I can take. I didn't love this
Mixed bag. I'm not that crazy about the slow bluesy ones.
Kind of inoffensive background music
I got really tired of the rock opera/musical theater sound. Didn't finish with two songs left.
I can't take this much Siouxsie in one sitting. It's too discordant.
Musically I thought this was kind of boring. The lyrics seemed more interesting.
I guess this is Southern rock? It gets a little tiresome after awhile, and I've never been a Freebird fan.
Now that I'm thoroughly depressed ...
So boring. I feel like everyone who was influenced by Dion maybe improved the sound with their own music.
I don't know how to rate this.
Rating this on its own merits and not based on it sounding like other britpop bands.
It just feels like every song is the same and Bruce is straining his vocal chords on every one of them. Not a fan
Sorry, but I love this album.
I found this pretty boring. Background cafe music.
Dreadful. I hate this hippie music.
Since this is a live album there's the inevitable noodling that was ok in some songs and interminable in others. I didn't mind it on the whole. I do quite like In memory of Elizabeth Reed.
I don't like reggae, but I'll give it the stars.
A few songs got a little depressing for me, but there were other winners.
Ugh. Hated it, and that twee Mother's Lament at the end was the icing on the turd cake.
Didn't hate it.
