The Jimi Hendrix Experience Electric Ladyland2.5
I realize the impact and influence this album had and how innovative some of the guitar work on it was. No debate, some pioneering tones going on. HOWEVER, as an actual album, Electric Ladyland has no cohesive value whatsoever. There are multiple extended blues jams that have no place on any sort of studio album; I can't see how Jimi just "jamming out" for 12 minutes constitutes a song, especially when it was very likely all improvisational and recorded in one take. Even many of the tracks with shorter run times suffer from being little more than jamming for jamming's sake. Innovative sounds: check; ahead-of-its-time guitar work: check; an utter lack of direction as an album: double-check.

a very nice, pleasant little album with a handful of memorable tracks. nothing
groundbreaking and it has a few duds, but for the most part just a solid album.

EDIT: fuck, this is good. i still think there are duds, but most of the non-duds are
simply terrific.

he can list himself as the primary producer on as many of these tracks as he wants, but i can't bring myself to even consider this a true kanye cd with the overwhelming majority of production coming from others. i realize he's trying to focus more on rapping than producing at this point, but i am incredibly disappointed that i may never get to hear a proper, mainly kanye-produced answer to mbdtf. sure, yeezus has some tight beats and kanye remains a respectable rapper, but it's like he feels incapable of topping 2010's effort with his own production.

KiD CuDi Man On The Moon: The End Of Day2.0
what exactly is kid cudi's appeal? i get that this is more or less a concept album and i'm a fan of a good handful of the beats on this album, but i mean what's the big fucking deal with kid cudi? he's boring as shit and lacks the difficulty of many of his peers (especially given the almost standard practice of multi-syllable, extended rhyme sequences these days) from a lyrical perspective. and singing-wise, he's just as much of an underwhelming yawn. like even the aforementioned beats that saved this album from getting a sub-2 weren't cudi's doing, cuz he merely co-produced a few songs on this overly-long mess. so, again, what the hell is kid cudi's appeal?

if you actually give it a shot w/o giving a fuck what its review or overall rating say, this ris an excellent album. really a ton of variety (even moreso than chuck, surprisingly) is rfound on this cd and it's easily their most experimental. if you're just gonna write it off ras "it's sum 41 post-dave so it's gotta suck," you're missing out. listen to jessica kill, rthen crash, then the title track for starters just to get a glimpse of how diverse and just rflat out good this album really is.

Dr. Dre 20014.5
dear god, these beats. however many years pass, i can't imagine any person or trend (especially dre himself - i'm sure detox is RIGHT around the corner...) in hip-hop making this record sound dated. stylistically, of course, the content, features, and post-g funk bumping sound of these tracks many not exactly be "in," but everything sounds so lively and fresh that i'm confident in this album's ability to inspire and awe upcoming producers for decades to come.

if everyone who gave this album less than a 4 sat there and paid attention to the insane rrhyme schemes, i guarantee they'd reconsider their rating. i mean, on "my mom," for rexample, he rhymes "mother would wanna see her" (all 7 syllables) 8 times in a row, and on 3 ra.m. he literally has 25 straight lines ending with a rhyme of "audience." and also, anyone rwho says "thank god shady got his edge back on recovery" or some shit is a fucking idiot or rjust ignorant as hell. 90% of this album's contents are em rapping drugs, raping lesbians, rand killing people, etc. i don't really give a fuck if this album doesn't have much of a rpoint to it, cuz, save "if i had" and "rock bottom," did the slim shady lp?

exponentially less hilarious and provocative than the first 2 major label albums (especially the mmlp), but there's still no denying em's flow and lyrical complexity. i commend him for trying to step up and self-produce a good number of tracks on here, but i find em's production pretty bland.

Eminem The Slim Shady LP4.5
while the marshall mathers lp clearly meant more and at times was just as shocking/funny (and for an actual purpose, unlike some of the misses found on encore or relapse), the slim shady lp has got to be the most lyrically-entertaining album i've ever heard. honestly, who else prior to this was writing lines like, "you thought i was ill, well now i'm even moreso / shit, i got full-blown aids and a sore throat. / i've got a wardrobe with an orange robe / i'm in the fourth row signing autographs at your show." not only is this whole album packed with funny, irreverent material, but the complexity of rhyming presented was years ahead of its time. i used to consider the mmlp this album's superior, but it's getting harder to do so with each listen.
Eminem Recovery2.5
has some damn good, straight up beastish songs (ex: won't back down, almost famous, cold wind blows). in fact, i think the 3rd verse in won't back down is one of his greatest verses ever. between the whole volume-changing thing, and some DIRTY lines ("fork was in the road, took the psychopath, poison ivy wouldn't have me thinking rash"), that song is the shit, as are the other b.a. ones i mentioned. even some of the ballads are fantastic (going through changes and not afraid). rHOWEVER, this album definitely has its flaws. my biggest beef w/ this album is the generally ass-awful guest spots. specifically, the various singers on talkin' 2 myself, space bound, and especially cinderella man just flat out suck. maybe i'm just being racist (probably), but the sometimes-autotune, sometimes-gospelish styles that these various unheard of singers use are just terrible. granted the female guest spots are generally good, but pretty much all the guy ones suck huge dick (although some shitty spots work in em's favor, such as when he straight up embarrasses lil wayne in no love). while these eh-ish vocal parts aren't necessarily em's fault, he still could've opted to hire some other singers/rappers to accompany him. same goes w/ the beats in my opinion - being that so bad is the only dre-produced track, recovery just doesn't have that eminem feel to it. roverall, this album's inconsistency and faults (although not necessarily on em's shoulders) bring it down slightly, but it's still a great album with some solid tracks (and w/o that fucking terrible accent thankfully).

it's got so much anger, so much hilariousness, so much line-crossing, and such fantastic production that the immense skill that goes into em's lyrics (the continual multi-syllable rhyme schemes most notably) often goes overlooked.

there are few people on this earth i hate more than ian gillan. he is an ATROCIOUS singer and thinks he's hot shit, trying to add unnecessarily over-the-top bluesy fills into basically every song in which he's ever sung. and holy shit, the fact that he has his own band called "gillan" is just hilarious. i hate pretty much every lead singer (at least ones who just sing and don't actually play any instruments) that does a solo project and names it simply their own name. what the fuck is that shit? w/o the actual MUSICIANS in your band, you'd just be acapella, so how the fuck can you name the entire band just "gillan" or "ozzy osbourne," etc. and granted this is a "deep purple" album, but unfortunately ian gillan's solo career doesn't exist on this website, so i pretty much had to use this album to rip on him. and not only do ian gillan's attempts at bluesy profoundness irritate me to no end, but the guitar and organ work (songwriting-wise, not in terms of skill) are just horrendous as well. this album is the epitome of shit.
and i know what you're thinking, "why do you listen to it then?" well my dad and i both play the drums at my house, and over the past 5 years or so i've had the displeasure of hearing this trash over and over and over again. it is quite possibly the single most annoying music i've ever heard (and i used to have to listen to nickelback at work).

the fact that this is the ONLY soundoff for an album w/ 500+ ratings pretty much indicates how unmemorable it is. this is a surprisingly weak effort from a band whose previous albums (especally ixnay and americana) were very solid. furthermore, the 3.2 rating baffles me. as a whole, this album is just very safe and forgettable, a 3 at best.

after much thought and deliberations (and listening), fuck it, i 5'd this. initially, i think i gave this a 2.5 several years ago when i first heard it. but as i've grown as a musician and listener alike, i've come to truly appreciate the absolute majesty and ambition of this album. 28 songs and maybe 2 or 3 i don't love. what an album.redit: 4.5. meh.
