What is more remarkable about the album is the fact it simultaneously established rock n' roll no longer as a teenage fad but as a genuine cultural movement, albeit firmly removed from its racial roots. Elvis Presley proved that a rock album could not only sell, as teenagers generally only invested in '45s in those days, but it could outsell the singles from its own and any other genre.

Unpopular opinion: Elvis here creates predominantly pre-owned music here, making it feel as though he is only capable of spinning music in his direction but is incapable of making something of his own. This is especially true in situations in which he takes music created by popular African American artists and essentially tries to replicate their sound.

This doesn't entirely hold up despite Elvis Presley's famous eccentric personality. I don't actually find much of that eccentricity in the music, I'd say his personality impacted the music scene a lot more than the actual substance of 'his' art. There's still some enjoyable stuff and some really nice blues style instrumental work on here. I prefer that slow bluesy stuff to the more energetic rock & roll though he does have very good songs in both styles.
