Utagawa Kuniyoshi - Tameteo rescued from the Sea Monster
I hope you all don’t think I like every album out there just because I post positive reviews. For every album in love there’s dozens I despise. So today, we shall have a negative review.
After the Gaslamp Killers three EPs I was really looking forward to this record but it didn’t deliver at all. Unoriginal sampling, boring lyrics and synths for nothing more than show.
My grade: D+
Claude Monet - Poppy Field near Argenteuil, 1875.
My first post over 2000 notes!!
This is the quintessential roots rock record, along with The Band’s debut Music From Big Pink. These guys are some of the originators of the lo-fi sound. This album is live, intimate, simple and straightforward. It’s not embellished or overly produced which is what gives it all it’s tangible emotion. Classic.
My grade: A-
