The way his guitar sounded was unique at the time. Nobody was forward than him in terms of electric guitar sound. Period.

The songwriting is overall very good. Some tracks may not seem like such a big thing from today standpoint but we have to remember that nothing sounded like that at the time (I'm thinking about Are you exp?, I don't live today, Remember, Love or confusion, Can you see me, May this be love).
And then of course we got the 5 star songs of the record:
Foxy lady and Fire are blues-riffs-on-steroids heavy tracks; Manic depression is a 3/4 very unusual track with maniac riffs coming out from the speakers until an outstanding solo ends all that mess; Red house is standard 12bar blues done the way it's supposed to be done: with a deep feeling; and lastly 3rd stone from the Sun, a marvel where surf, jazz and psychedelia meets up for a hell of a ride.

It simply is one of those records that changed the surface of popular music, mostly because it started an earthquake among fellow musicians. The impact on his colleagues was instantaneous.

Jimi was a fricking god on the guitar, and his debut album was his best LP. The songs are so psychedelically groovy, and Jimi supplies magic on his six string.

One of the most important and influential debut albums ever. Jimi Hendrix is off course quite rightly regarded as one of the all time great guitar players, but what is sometimes forgotten is how much of a fantastic songwriter he was. This album is full of some of those great songs. Foxy lady, kicks things off and Hendrix gives us mindblowing performance after mindblowing performance. The energetic, fire, the burning blues of, red house, and the excellent title track are just a few of the many delights here. The CD version adds Hendrix's first three amazing singles and their equally stunning b-sides. Hey Joe, purple haze, and, the wind cries Mary, are three of the most exciting singles of the late sixties, and, stone free, on the flip side of, hey Joe, is arguably even better than the a-side. A fantastic record that every music fan should have in their collection.

Marvel at Jimi's otherworldly talent, worship at his feet. Find joy that our planet produced a guitar hero worthy of our adoration and for all generations yet to come.
