Yes, somehow the same guys that brought you "Hey Ya!" and shaking things like Polaroid pictures made it to Rolling Stone's list of Greatest Albums. This one reminds me a lot of Life After Death, which appears a bit further up the list at #476, in fact it almost sounds like a tribute to that album at times. Not bad overall.
My rating: ★★★✩
Recorded live at Chicago's Cook County Jail in 1971, this one is a scant 8 tracks and B.B. blisters through it. Would be five stars if it were longer and showcased his playing a bit more. It is however loaded with blues intensity and plenty of back and forth with the crowd. He has another album at #141 and this one probably deserves to be rated higher as well. There is no way you can dislike this.
My rating: ★★★★
Despite having nearly unanimous 5-star reviews on Amazon I found this to be a fairly unremarkable and dated-sounding album. I'm not all that familiar with The Stone Roses so perhaps a few more listenings would let it grow on me but honestly I doubt I would even put this in my top 500.
My rating: ★★
A couple of great tracks (the singles Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground and Fell In Love With A Girl) mixed with a bunch of stuff that's all over the place - slow ballad to piano rock to whatever Aluminum is supposed to be. I mean, I guess that's part of Jack White's charm but for the most part I don't get it.
My rating: ★★★
