One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at Are You Experienced:
Words cannot describe my intense dislike for Jimi’s guitar “skills”. This guy is a HACK. All songs sound exactly the same, the drummer is weak, does the bassist even exist? Listen to some REAL music that actually requires talent- like Nickelback!
Are you kidding me. Did Avril Lavigne ever use distortion in her songs? Or how about those wierd sound effect things? Mmhhm, that’s whqat I thought. Keeping that in mind, how could anyone in their right mind say that this Hendrix guy is good. You lozerz obviously now nothing about muzik. Some idiots are calling him the best guitar player ever….? HELLO??? That’s like saying MTV doesn’t play good muzik!!! If you want good guitar, try Avril Lavigne, or, the masters of Metal, Limp Bizkit.
I bought this disc based on all the reviews claiming it’s the greatest guitar album ever. I was very dissapointed, most of the solos suck. Plus, I was surprised that MTV didnt play any videos from this album, I wonder why? Probebly cause the MTV crowd know this music is tired and boring. If you want great guitar listen to Good Charlotte.
I first picked this album up because I heard Hendrix played some heavy, rockin music. But all this album is is a bunch of blues tunes that go nowhere. His solos are just a bunch of noise and his sound is dated, unlike good bands like Great White and Skid Row. Not recommended for fans of good heavy metal.
Jimi Hendrix has to be the most over rated guitarist ever! Not only does his songs make no sense, but he can’t solo to save his life! I’m sick and tired of these retro wannabes saying how fabulous he is!
For good guitaring check out Limp Bizkit, Nickelback, Disturbed, Korn, Kid Rock, Staind, Creed, and Metallica’s St Anger Album.
Oh, and Lenny Kravitz is GOD compared to this rip off!
Time Waits for no one, and this album is the proof why. Pruple Haze Indeed contains probebly the greatest Guitar riff ever recorded but the rest of the album not very much. Buy something from the Rolling Stones.
There’s no denying the effect Jimi Hendrix’s debut had on rock music in the late sixties, it’s also generally considered one of the great rock albums of all time, always making in the list of top 10 or 15 of all time. If this album came out today, it would just be another rock album. Nothing more. Nothing less. Jimi Hendrix himself remains the most overrated artist in rock history, an artist with simple songwriting talent. Yeah yeah talk about his guitar playing, he wasn’t actually a great guitar player but he was considered important because he made the guitar sound wierd with fuz and wah wah noise. Eric Clapton, Jimmi Paige, Chuck Berry, Keith Richard, Pete Townshead were all better guitarists, because they actually created solos with melody, not just some noise thrown together with no melodic sense. There are many things in like which are overhyped and Jimi Hendrix is one of them. Dont beleive the hype, listen to the album if you want but don’t pretend you’re hearing something revolutionary because nowadays, it’s just another rock album. Period.
This album is garbage. How can this NOISE be considered “music”?? Do not waste your money on this junk.
I dont know what everyone is talking about here, I find nothing special in this music.
This guy is supposed to be the greatest guitarist of all time? Jimmy Page could play one of this guy’s solos with his eyes closed. Hey Joe is the only decent song on this album. This guy is way overatted just because he died young. Jimmy Page is the greatest guitarist of all time, and if you want to argue that, compare the two, go for it! This is horrible. He sounds stoned. Listen to Led Zeppelin or something if you want to hear good classic rock.
Since mostly everyone considers Jimi Hendrix the best guitarist of all time, I would have to go against the grain and proclaim him as the perhaps the worst guitarist that ever lived. His playing was sloppy and he only created sounds, his solos were boring and easy to play. My friend does play guitar very well and he can play every solo on this CD easiely. Jimi Hendrix was never the master of guitar solos, he basically created crazy and wierd sounds out of guitar and made people wonder how he got those sounds.
If you’re looking for great guitar-based albums buy Led Zeppelin II, Back in Black, or Sticky Fingers and skip Jimi hendrix. There’s no good music here. He’s boring, talentless and he whines. 1-star.
