Back At The Chicken ShackJimmy Smith
Didn’t know the artist but liked this album a lot, it was a nice surprise!
Didn’t know the artist but liked this album a lot, it was a nice surprise!
Although I obviously know who Paul Simon is, don’t think I’ve ever heard this record before. It’s so much fun!
A masterpiece, definitely need to own a copy!
It’s not a bad record, just maybe a bit too experimental for my specific mood today…
Such a great classic rock album!
One of my all time favorites!
Had never heard about it until now and it’s always cool to learn new things but I’m not impressed. Probably super revolutionary at the time but barely has any music, being mostly noisy sounds experiments.
This is a good one! A britpop classic that takes us on a trip to the 90s.
Sounds like if The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones had a baby and it made this nice but not particularly memorable record.
I had higher expectations, considering all the special guests (Nash, Young, Joni Mitchell, Grateful Dead)… bit disappointing and boring.
I actually preferred the other Paul Simon record on this list, I found this one a bit weird (although I know it’s more well-known).
It’s such a fun and influential pop-punk record, I found it even hard to choose a favorite song.
It’s a nice post-punk / alt-rock record, had never heard it before. But after I finished, nothing really stuck with me.
I prefer Outlandos D’Amour by far. And although I’m a huge fan of Sting’s solo career, The Police isn’t a band I will usually listen to.
A classic, absolutely going to my must-have list.
Not what I was expecting at all… could be one of those Starbucks records. Some nice background music.
I never liked Muse, although I can recognize they’re technically fine and deliver a good live show. Always had the feeling that it’s a wannabe band, if that makes sense.
Although the name rang a bell, don’t think I ever listened to this record before. A very nice surprise, such a raw and cool album.
The beginning of a whole genre in an album, an absolute banger! Although I own other Black Sabbath records, this one is definitely missing and going on the list.
Sounds like listening to a movie (without watching). Might be a good concept album but it’s a weird and unpleasant experience.
A perfectly fine record made by the master cry-baby.
Has some great songs but also a couple of very boring ones. Not going on my list!
This one’s a vibe, I liked it!
No doubt that this record is an absolute classic but I’m not so sure it belongs on this list (or any live record).
Far from being one of my favorite MPB records (and artists), still was a nice listen.
Loved how funky and groovy this records is. Nonetheless… forgettable.
Everything around The Beatles usually annoys me, but that’s a talk for another day. Loved the 60s vibes on this one, it’s very constant in a good way, easy and fun to listen.
It’s not bad… but it’s so boring! 🥱 Country music isn’t my cup of tea.
The beginning of a great band! Being the first album with only original songs, I think this one aged very well. With a strong start, it develops into a promising jazzy and bluesy rock & roll record.
Since it was released only a few months after The Doors’ debut album, I’m not sure if it’s fair to mention any influences. It’s a nice record but definitely not as memorable as its contemporaneous.
Barely over 30 albums out of 1000 and I already got two by The Beatles… My relationship with this band is complicated to explain and not everyone will understand. So I’ll just say that this record is fine.
So dreamy and mellow, I liked it!
Physically painful. I’d rather throw acid on my eyes than to sit through another ABBA album.
Love this record, they’re such a unique funk rock band with a very particular sound.
One of my all-time favorites, a seminal and brutal thrash record that stands the test of time.
Bit different from what I was expecting but definitely not my cup of tea.
I like this challenge because I get to discover new stuff but then can’t help to feel a bit ignorant for not knowing so many! Never heard of this artist before and found the record very experimental in a quirky and good way.
I find it really hard to believe I needed to hear this one before I die. Slightly better than what I was expecting but extremely generic. Also, are we sure the lead singer doesn’t need speech therapy?
It’s a cool record, with a couple of very strong songs. Found it a bit repetitive, though.
The rating isn’t lower out of respect for Brian Eno only. I’d say it’s an overlong bore.
Such a lovely one, so mellow and beautiful. Might actually be going on my must-have list.
It’s a good one, very funky and everything… but it’s repetitive and not that remarkable.
Just when I was complaining about the repetitive records, here comes one that sounds like there’s a different band playing each track. Very interesting but I wouldn’t give it a second listen unless I had too. Also, got to see them live this year and had the same feeling…
Love the harmonies and the 60s’ vibes. Also had no idea that Love Hurts by Nazareth is a cover song, so there’s that. 😂
I find this genre so boring! 🥱 Also, too many samples.
Absolute perfection! A murky record full of agony, it’s a classic.
The experiments work really well on some tracks, while others sounded a bit random and bizarre.
Actually liked some songs but others are bland and lack substance.
Such a smooth and pleasant Bossa Nova record. Going on my must-have list!
You really need to like Incubus’ vibes to appreciate this record and I know they have a lot of haters. I’m not one and this album is going on my list, since I don’t have a single one from this band.
Absolutely nothing stands out, unremarkable at best.
So angry, noisy and raw. I’d say maybe even a bit ahead of its time. Going on the list!
It’s not your basic rock album. I love how rich the songs are, with piano, saxophone and other instruments clearly asserting their presence.
You just can’t go wrong with CCR!
A masterpiece, one of the most incredible debut records of all times.
I found his voice really annoying after a couple of songs. Bit of a boring record, to be honest.
When the first track started, I thought I would like the record more than I actually did. It’s fine but didn’t change my life.
I don’t completely dislike some of their songs but listening to a whole album was a very dreadful experience, honestly.
Nothing particularly wrong with it. Just dull, forgettable and very uncharismatic
Sigur Rós delivering exactly what you expect them to. A particular and ethereal sound with a very demanding listening experience, you really need to be in the mood.
Another perfectly (just) fine and unremarkable record, but liked a couple of songs.
What a delightful journey through this conceptual rock opera. But a bit overrated, I’d say.
I was honestly expecting Mezzanine, maybe I’ll get it down the line. This one is also cool but not as good, in my opinion.
Maybe too experimental for my mood today. Very unnecessary on this list.
Really confident that Unknown Pleasures is also on this list… right? Love this one, just not as much.
I really wanted to like it more than I did! 😂 I find the concept interesting but the final result a bit stale. And how much more Nick Cave do we really need on this list?
Very soothing and easy to listen. I liked it but don’t think live records should be on this list…
It’s a wonderful britpop record and an amazing debut but I can’t help but feel that something’s still missing.
Another live record… a very energetic and electric performance.
Not usually my cup of tea but I found it catchy and a nice listen.
Liked how spooky, unique and eccentric it was. Never heard it before!
Can’t get enough of Led Zeppelin, huge fan. Hoping all the others that came first are also on this list, I’ll admit this one gives you the full Zep experience.
Liked it but this record doesn’t bring anything too surprising nor interesting to the Radiohead prisma.
Loved this one, you can guess the impact it had in ‘77 and how it was so influential and defining to so many bands. Going on my must-have list.
Not a very enjoyable listening experience for the most part, to be honest. Maybe it’s not my kind of jazz. [0076/1001]
Found it interesting, with some peculiar association between the lyrics and the sound. Also, how the record evolves and still surprises you just when you think you figured it out. [0077/1001]
I find the amount of live albums on this list very alarming! But it was nice (mostly as background music). [0078/1001]
Chill and smooth vibes but wouldn’t call it a masterpiece. [0079/1001]
The fact is that the only song that stands out is the one that put them on the map. Nonetheless, is was a very enjoyable and nice surprise. Since it’s their only record, it might even go on my must-have list. [0080/1001]
Almost unlistenable noise for the most part, absolutely unworthy of this list. [0081/1001]
Maybe normally I wouldn’t care for this one but it makes me a bit nostalgic, since these songs would play on the radio all the time when I as a kid. [0082/1001]
I got to SOAD a bit late. But oh boy, when I got to them…! It wasn’t even indifferent to me, I actually disliked them. Then a few years later, I drove 600km just to see them. Funny how time is and how it can change so much. Anyway, this is an unbelievable debut album, explosive and frantic. It’s very challenging and rare to be able to create something that’s never been done before and, wether you like them or not, I believe SOAD are one of the few bands that can be proud of that. [0083/1001]
This is the 3rd from Nick Cave that I got on this list. Liked it more than the others. The songs are glorious and the production is amazing. Is it going on my must-have list? No. [0084/1001]
I’m sure this was amazing in ‘79. In 2023, sounds boring. Or maybe just not my thing. [0085/1001]
Just… no. [0086/1001]
It’s not that I don’t like Steely Dan, I love some good old classic rock. The album is ok, but the truth is that nothing quite stands out. [0087/1001]
Now this is a rock album, an absolute banger! Love how distinctive and groovy it is, simply awesome and delivers everything you expect from ZZ Top. [0088/1001]
What comes after an extraordinary opening track ends up being a bit monotonous record. [0089/1001]
Sure, Duke Ellington is absolutely great. 2h of a live record? Absolutely not. [0090/1001]
An interesting record full of intense energy, I found the bass play particularly wondrous. Massive respect for its influence and definitely going on my must-have list! [0091/1001]
An absolute classic! I found it a very impressive and delightful debut, might go on my must-have list. [0092/1001]
Another amazing debut, full of great songs with harmonies that stand the test of time. [0093/1001]
It has one of the best rock songs ever written and a couple of great tracks. It has Clapton and Allman. But somehow I still found it too long and not quite the masterpiece altogether. [0094/1001]
Some songs were a vibe but others were so monotonous that, overall, the record is unexceptional. [0095/1001]
I’ve always loved the sound of Knopfler’s guitar. He plays so effortlessly! It’s a great record, with one or two less impressive tracks that maybe didn’t age too well. [0096/1001]
Felt no substance and definitely not my cup of tea. [0097/1001]
Hard pass! [0098/1001]
Great to get this on Christmas day because it would be hard listening and rating it in August! Today it feels like the perfect vibe for the most magical day of the year.
Have no idea why this is on this list. So boring, nothing stands out. [0100/1001]
A long and painful listening experience. Not my thing. [0101/1001]
Started out great, bored me a little by the middle and then turned around again. Loved some of the songs but wouldn’t buy the album, though. [0101/1001]
There’s not a bad song! A banger with a super bluesy rock. How come I don’t own a single record? I don’t know, it has been on my list for a while. [1103/1001]
I wish I could travel in time and appreciate this debut in 1964. Unfortunately, considering it only has one original song, it’s a bit less impressive in 2023. [0104/1001]
Nice background music and that’s it. [0105/1001]
A classic record, carried mostly by its opening track. Can’t really go wrong with an album with Bon Scott and his energy. [0106/1001]
Would have definitely liked it more if it wasn’t for the goaty vocals… [0107/1001]
Honestly, I don’t think it would ever cross my mind to listen to a full album by Cyndi Lauper. It was a pleasant surprise and the fact that it has two of the most iconic songs of 80s’ pop, should be impressive by itself. [0108/1001]
Mixed feelings when an artist is only mostly known by a cover version of another artist’s song. But this is a beautiful album, full of strong emotions and it made me a bit gloomy for Sinéad, the shitty life she had and the injustice she suffered.
Being so ignorant, I didn’t even know Janis Joplin had a band. I’m not her biggest fan but was actually enjoying the first tracks and her rusty voice. After a while and especially after realizing they chose to add effects to create the illusion of a live album, it’s a no for me. [0110/1001]
Never paid much attention to this artist. Found the record not bad per se, just monotonous and uninteresting. [0111/1001]
Works fine as background music but nothing stands out. [0112/1001]
One of those voices for the eternity!
Never heard a full album by The Young Gods before and I thought I’d like it more, since there’s a couple of songs by them I really enjoy. [0114/1001]
Sort of chill to have on background but a bit boring to actually listen and pay attention. [0115/1001]
Yes, these songs became absolute hits and are extremely overplayed by now. But what a debut! One of the best hard rock albums ever, love it. [0116/1001]
Not even the more experimental tracks are interesting enough… just a big yawn.
Jimi Hendrix is one of my favorite guitar players but this record feels a bit disconnected on itself as a whole and that’s the only reason I don’t give it 5 stars. It has so many great songs, though, including one of the best cover songs EVER made. [0118/1001]
I didn’t know this project and had a pleasant surprise, it’s the perfect representation of 90s’ alt-rock. However, it does sound a bit tryhard-ish. [0119/1001]
There’s nothing catchy, nothing stands out. I don’t like this one as much as other Fleetwood Mac’s albums. [0120/1001]
Felt nothing, sounded like soulless, plastic and boring music. Not my thing. [0121/1001]
Actually more listenable than I was expecting but his voice does get annoying after a few tracks. [0122/1001]
Boring background music, I could list hundreds of albums that could be in its place and probably aren’t on this list. [0123/1001]
The haters gonna hate, hate, hate… 😂 If I like it? No. If I understand how she is one of the best-selling artists of all time? Maybe. And, yes, I listened to Taylor’s version. [0124/1001]
How many Steely Dan’s albums do we need on this list? It’s perfectly fine but it lacks a bit more substance and excitement overall. [0125/1001]
Unfortunately, it’s not a genre I can appreciate. [0126/1001]
I enjoyed it when listening but it didn’t leave a mark. I honestly expected to like it more than I did. [0127/1001]
It’s a classic and the songs are all very similar but since its duration is short, provides a very enjoyable listening experience. [0128/1001]
So raw, noisy and brutal. Love the industrial vibes, it’s a powerful debut. [0129/1001]
It’s a smooth listen but there’s nothing too special nor distinctive. [0130/1001]
I’m sure he was an amazing performer but live records on this list just grind my gears. [0131/1001]
It’s soooo good, an absolute prog heaven. Which might get pretty boring if it’s not a genre you can appreciate. This one is flying to my must-have list. [0132/1001]
What a big fucking yawn. Country is definitely not my thing. [0133/1001]
Absolutely love this one, a timeless classic full of brilliant tracks. It’s not by accident that they’re one of the most influential rock bands of that time. [0134/1001]
Not sure if I’ve never heard this band or if I never paid enough attention. Anywho, nothing sounded familiar. It was a pleasant listen, a nice surprise. [0135/1001]
Nothing special or memorable, forgot all about it 5 minutes after it ended. [0136/1001]
A bit too long but I loved it, it’s a great comfort album for a Winter day. [0137/1001]
A spooky post-punk record, with an immaculate sprinkle of goth. So good!
It’s fine but nothing too incredible. Also, I had no idea that the song Valerie is originally by this band (not on this album) and was later covered by Winehouse. [0139/1001]
I know he was an excellent performer and a very successful money machine, revolutionary at the time. But truth is he didn’t write the songs and, overall, I thought I’d like it more. [0140/1001]
Waaaay too long for someone who doesn’t like the genre that much. I enjoyed the experimental, jazz and punk hardcore-ish vibes on some tracks and, obviously, the absolute banger that turned out to be one of the most iconic songs of the 90s. [0141/1001]
Have no idea how I knew one song, since his name was unfamiliar. It was a smooth and uneventful listen. [0142/1001]
Simply can’t appreciate this sort of music, not my thing. Maybe one track here and there but not a full album. [0143/1001]
Old but gold. Would we have The Beatles without Buddy Holly? Maybe not. Would we have “American Pie” (Don McLean)? Absolutely not! 😆 An amazing debut, influential to so many artists. It might sound a bit tame for us now but can you imagine how this was perceived in the 50s? [0144/1001]
Wouldn’t typically be a genre I like and I would probably nag about its duration… but I love this one sooo much! It might be one of my favorite records from that period. [0145/1001]
I have nothing but respect for the best-selling album of all time. But, somehow, his music never resonated with me that much. Don’t own any copies of his records and probably never will but you might catch me sing along a track or two. [0146/1001]
