“Jagged Little Pill” is an essential album in anyone’s vinyl collection. Each song is well-written by the talented @alanis and in my opinion is her magnum opus. I think this is one of the most iconic 90’s record ever made (I know that statement is debatable, but its true). Ironic, All I Really Want, You Oughta Know, Head Over Feet, and Hand In My Pocket... CLASSICS!
Rating 10/10 #albumreview
How does this album hold up after 26 years???? Timeless that's how.
A debut album full of fire that launched them all into superstars. You know their names!
Basement beats by the RZA and 9 emcees whose rapping seemed like they were in the game for years. Fans argue over which tracks or verses are the best, you can't name just 5, dayum, the whole damn album is off the hook. It's grimy, hard hitting, catchy, and takes you back to New York rap in the 90's. That raw sound that is no longer or very hard to find in hip hop nowadays.
Is the album a fluke?? Imho I do think so, as they were never able to make an album half as good. Maybe the fact they were all superstars and all had solo albums to focus on I don't know. Each album had some dope songs, but RZA (who is a dope mc himself) lost his creative edge on future productions. They just seemed to have forgotten about crafting a good hip hop song. Forgettable beats and some forgettable verses with forgettable hooks plagued future releases. I know that sounds harsh but the reason no other Wu Tang Clan album is in my top albums. Some solo albums were great tho. Liquid swords, Supreme Clientele, OBFCL to name a few. Will they ever capture the magic? I don't think so. This was a new style in 93, and never done before. New York needed this album to show the world of rap fans what hip hop can do, push the boundaries and reinvent itself without going pop whilst bringing their Kung Fu influences to street music.
The artwork alone which is one of my favourite albums covers is a masterpiece.
Whilst they can still rhyme no doubt (that's not even an issue) the verses on this album will remain memorable. This album will be a cult classic, outlive us all and perhaps find new fans looking for that New York hip hop sound of the 90s for years to come.
Just my album review as I revisit this album in my car CD player this week. #hiphopmusic#hiphopthrowback#newyork#rap#newyorkrap#newyorkhiphop #albumcover
