Nothing tops Hendrix, his mastery of a guitar was showcased to the world. We was a gift to rock and roll and the blues.

How can this album be #31? It's one of the most spectacular debut recording ever made. The band is tight, daring excited about the material. Hendrix well, there's nothing I can ad to his well deserved accolades. The pinnacle of psychedelic freakin' rock.

The best guitarist to ever walk the planet and his astonishing debut album. Must have been a bit of a shock first. Foxy Lady or Fire still sound ten times more wild and raw than most of the music made today.

Purple Haze, Hey Joe, The Wind Cries Mary > Red House, Can You See Me, Remember. Thus, the North American Track list is superior to the UK version. No?

Try to hear this bombshell debut as an English pop record.
You could hum these tunes. Yet humming definitely doesn't capture their essence, a roiling sea of guitar that would change how a generation of fans heard music and conceived their own blown minds.

For my money, this is the best album of 1967. Arguably the greatest debut album ever.


With this album, Hendrix simply says: Hello world, I'm Jimi Hendrix and I'm a genius, be prepared for what you are about to hear.

Barnstorming, game changing debut rammed full of brilliant songs - the electric guitar was never looked at in the same way again. The bonus tracks, for once, make it even better as it includes all the non-album singles released at the same time. No rock music collection is complete without this masterpiece.

Jimi Hendrix debut to the musical world was one of the greatest of all time. Hendrix demonstrated his musical capabilities through his guitar work on this classic LP. In this album, Hendrix takes his spin on rock and roll, going through phases of blues, psychedelia, and acid rock. Hendrix truly radiated energy through his guitar and all of it is felt with tremendous force on this album. This album helped Hendrix make his mark in musical history despite his shortlived career and it helped to define Psychadelic Rock for years to come.
Best tracks: Fire, rRed House, Foxy Lady, Purple Haze(Depending on which version of the album)
