Fleetwood Mac was a Blues Rock band since late 60's in Peter Green's lead. However in 1975 the band reformed itself with new members, the new formation brought a new sound for FM, a sound that combines folk, pop, rock and country to create an higly accessible and enjoyable soft rock style that made the band a global sensation. In my opinion, the new Fleetwood Mac is the best lineup in classic rock, every band member compliments their instruments and the 3 vocalists of the band has one of the ... read more
This is one of my all-time favourites. Surfer Rosa feels like an album that doesn't take everything too seriously while being completely innovative and inspirational. Songs on the album feels like sudden explosions that mostly last 2 minutes. Typical Pixies lyrics are also here but Albini's raw production and some studio chit-chat's of band members makes you feel like you were present on the album's recording. It's one of the most agressive, energetic and sincere albums I ever listened to.
After two mildly strange records, Kate Bush leaves the experimentalism for her 6th album while still remaining as different and original as possible. 'The Sensual World' is an Art Pop album heavily influenced by European folk and rock, setting up the sound of her future releases with some production ideas here and there. Lyrically, Kate discovers the themes of love, lust and the spirituality of life, singing in an almost sexual voice and creates a bittersweet and sophisticated masterpiece.
There's nothing much to say about this album. Songs of Leonard Cohen is so simple, but it requires great talent to make such a beautiful album using only voice, acoustic instruments and songwriting. A classic for sure.
Favourites: Suzanne, Sisters of Mercy, So Long Marianne, Teachers
For his 3rd full album release, the musical chameleon experimented hard rock with a little drop of glam in it. Coming close to the sound of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. He's yet to show his real talent and creativity in his future releases, but 'The Man Who Sold the World' has plenty of my absolute favourite Bowie songs in its tracklist. It certainly isn't Bowie at his best but it shows his darker side of his songwriting. Also look at that album cover. How badass!
My list is so extensive probably due to the fact that I've listened to an album a day for nearly five years, and that's totaled into the vast collection I obtained through the passing of my grandfather (including his obsession with rarities). Not only that, but I love listening to music, and it's a hobby of mine. This site TRULY helps me categorize my thoughts and feelings towards each individual album. It's so great and I use it almost everyday.
I've decided to step away from my Facebook account for a bit, so that's why I am using my Google account to access the site, and I plan to continue to use this account only, for future reference. However, I'm going to log back into both Facebook and the other account real quick and remove the Nico ratings. Killer site by the way. By the way, If there's a way to delete my initial account, that would be quite alright with me.
