We officially reach the 5% mark! I'm fucking exhausted already and beginning to think this was a terrible project. On top of that this one didn't really do a whole lot to get me going. I mean it was fine, but it wasn't anything ground breaking. I might listen to it while I was doing something else but I probably wouldn't seek it out.
My rating: ★★★
Is this a reggae album? Latin? French? Portuguese? Well it seems to be all of the above and it's pretty damn catchy to boot. I might like it better if it could pick one identity and run with it but overall it's interesting, different and fresh. All traits that are worthy of a memorable "top 500" album. On the other hand I have no idea what any of it means so it could all be about killing puppies or something.
My rating: ★★★★
Just when I was getting in a good mood from the last one, here comes Morrissey & The Smiths to bum everyone out with this downer of a down-tempo album. I mean I guess this one deserves a spot on the list because it's an important album from an important band or whatever but I mean does this thing just make you want to kill yourself or what? I guess if I was a 16-year old goth who thought everyone was an asshole then I'd probably love the hell out of this thing, but for now, I don't really get it.
My rating: ★★
I own it
A much better slice of 1980's pop. Alternately catchy as hell (Faith, Father Figure), kinky (I Want Your Sex) and serious (One More Try). Sure, the synthesizers sound a bit dated but other than that it still sounds pretty fresh.
My rating: ★★★★
