I wouldn’t say this album works like clockwork, but it’s still a great listen throughout all ten memorable and very consistent tracks. The whole thing feels incredibly fun, except maybe the title track, and the lyricism captures that really well. The guitar riffs aren’t Songs for the Deaf good, but still, contribute a great deal to the album.
Favourites: I Sat By the Ocean, My God is the Sun
Least Favourites: Kalopsia (I like the song, but I had to choose something).

For the first album I've ever heard from the '70s, this sets an extremely high precedent. While every song is soaked in Page’s bluesy goodness, each member of the band pulls their own weight too. It mixes rock and folk impeccably well. There are no bad tracks on the album, although a few are a bit bland, and the highs of this thing are absolutely monolithic.
Favourites: Stairway to Heaven, When the Levee Breaks, Black Dog
Least Favourites: Four Sticks (It’s alright)

While I feel like the charm of the first eight tracks, with loud guitars, great radio skits, and memorable performances, isn’t quite replicated by the closing few songs, I still love this album. It proves to be a wonderful listen even if I’m not in the mood for the calmer songs at the end. I’m not surprised why people name this one of the best rock albums of its decade.

A strange album of slow rock songs, blended with drum machines and electronica, although a lot more subtle than Kid A. I think this album is incredibly consistent, albeit a tiny bit forgettable, although a few tracks are certainly weaker than others. I, obviously, did favour the songs on the album that were more rock-oriented than electronic, but really, the blend of the two genres is just off being as good as Kid A.
Favourites: Bodysnatchers, Jigsaw Falling Into Place, Reckoner

While I was thrown off the album on the first listen because of the very electronic nature of this album, I can say now that I truly do enjoy it. While I think the guitar rock, which was still infused with a fair share of electronica, of OK Computer was a better sound, this is one of the better albums I’ve heard in the electronica genre. It’s got very few lows, but in turn, very few highs that could’ve elevated this album to a higher score. Lyrically, this album is incredibly ... read more

I'm a person who enjoys their fair share of pop punk, alternative rock, punk rock and heavy metal, and all genres in between. Quite bad at trying out new genres. Also loves video games, and enjoys reading a bit more than the average person.
