After listening to "Blonde" non-stop for a few days, I really had to listen to this one. And it's very good.
First off I really like the concept, it kind of reminds me of "Songs For The Deaf" with the radio station stuff.
Frank's songwriting and vocals are on point like on "Blonde", and I'd even argue that this album is a bit more consistent, but I guess his sophomore album had a bit more stand out tracks to me.
Another great thing about this album are the features ... read more

The fourth studio album by the music industry legend himself is easily one of the best albums of the 70s.

I basically like everything about this album, especially the art pop rock sound that is heavily influenced by piano and Bowie's masterfully crafted lyrics.
I even found the few homages that Bowie has written to the pop culture icons (Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol) very charming.
Some of the best Bowie songs appear here, such as "Changes" and ... read more

I guess the weakest point of the album for me, is that some songs , even though they are good, can get a bit boring.

Oh and that André 3000 feature is LIT.

Is this album overrated? Well maybe a bit, but it's still a very good R&B record.

I guess this is one of my unpopular opinions, huh?
I respect the Pixies, I really do. I've listened to their critically-acclaimed album "Doolittle", and to me it was just okay, but I liked this one even less.
The main thing that bothers me here, are the vocals, I just don't really like them. Songwriting is okay, I guess, even though most of the time I have no idea what is Black talking about.
I'd say the one thing I do like, are the guitar riffs, and that whole noise/garage rock ... read more
