Default Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced

Jimi Hendrix was in the Army for a short time but ended up being a Rockstar. The song “Purple haze” synchs with my life right now. The deep drums on the songs attract me to them as replay value. This is an album you can lay down and listen to from start to finish. This was the first vinyl I bought in Connecticut, and the last also. “Highway Chile” is a new one that stood out that I didn’t listen to much before but enjoyed now. That has been happening with the reviews I been doing. “Foxey Lady” is one of my favorite on this album and gives a complete 1960s vibe with the guitars and drum pattern. “Fire” is ultra-awesome also. There are a few songs on the album that aren’t as good as songs like ‘Fire’ or “Foxey Lady”, but they also aren’t that bad to ruin the album from start to finish. “May This Be Love” is really nice, every song has amazing guitars riffs, and layers. It’s definitely a far-out album, totally groovy, and would recommend it to anyone. It has songs that have lots of energy in them plus chill laid-back songs that you could chill to.

The album is the title ‘The Jimi Hendrix experience” and ends with a “Are you experienced?” It’s not the average title for an album, normally it’s just the artist and then the title. According to the album wiki page, because of the success of this album on its release, some people say it’s the best rock debut in history. I don’t think that but it’s really good. 1967, that was the year this album came out; the album defiantly gives off that time era vibe. The wiki page says that the album was recorded in 16 sessions, which seems pretty fast.

“Purple Haze” gives off a Black Sabbath vibe the way the guitar sounds but the drum patterns are different. According to the song Wikipedia page, Paul McCartney gave support to the song before its release back in 1967. “Purple Haze” only peaked to number 65 but to number 3 in the United Kingdom. “Purple Haze” must have been something back in the 1960s, but the quality of marijuana is completely different now and I honestly don’t imagine any weed being good back then. The purple weed nowadays in 2021 looks amazing though. The THC in marijuana was only around 3-10 percent THC, nowadays THC averages around 15-20 percent THC. This Jimi Hendrix song though is also on other albums collections of his, but I think this album was a true release as a real album. I wasn’t alive back then, but Spotify says 1967.

“Foxey Lady” is a song so good it made number 153 of the top 500 greatest songs of all time according to Rolling Stone magazine. I added this song to the playlist in the blog this week also too since it’s valentine’s day this blog. Deep drum kits and groovy guitar riffs give off a Black Sabbath vibe also. I have mentioned that twice in this review, but I view that as Mumford & Songs sounding like Of Monsters And Men in 2013 or 2014.
