this album is a very good (almost disorienting) fusion of blues, rock, funk, soul, psychedelia and jazz. Fantastic album
By the time he began to record 'Electric Ladyland', Jimi Hendrix had already learned enough about studio recording to be able to reproduce all the sounds he had in his head, note for note. The result was, in my opinion, the ultimate Jimi Hendrix experience and a testament to his songwriting and performance abilities. The whole thing is amazing, from the cosmic blues of 'Voodoo Chile' to the psychedelic 'Gypsy Eyes' to the jazzy prog-rock epic, '1983... (A Merman I Should Turn to Be), Hendrix managed to incorporate all of his musical influences without it sounding too convoluted or pretentious. Even near the end, the album keeps surprising us, its most memorable songs being its last two: 'All Along the Watchtower', probably the best cover ever made, and 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return)', a standard for rock guitarists all over the world.
ItSaysDilbert please stop. If you wanted to rate this a B, THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULD'VE RATED IT AN 80 INSTEAD OF 70. You do this for literally every single one of the comments you make. I don't understand. It's so simple to fix. Here, I can do it pretty easily:
Favorite tracks: Crosstown Traffic, Little Miss Strange, Come On (Let the Good Times Roll), All Along the Watchtower, Voodoo Child(Slight Return)

A little too long for my like.
Double albums are not my cup of tea.
The best tunes are amazing.
The final album from The Jimi Hendrix Experience is another masterpiece. Originally a two record set, electric ladyland, gives Hendrix a canvas to branch out musically and expand his ambitions. Still featuring a heavy dose of psychedelic rock and blues, the album also incorporates hints of soul in, have you ever been(to electric ladyland). Highlights include the excellent, cross town traffic, the no:1 hit single, voodoo child(slight return), and arguably the greatest cover version of all time with an apocalyptic take on Bob Dylan's, all along the watchtower. Other standouts include, burning of the midnight lamp, gypsy eyes, and the blues of, voodoo chile. It would have been fascinating to see where Hendrix would have gone in the seventies, but off course we'll never know. Still, let's just be thankful for what we have got. Superb.
I know I'm gonna get 20 dislikes for this, but the fact that this album is on 66th place and "Odessey and Oracle" (from the same year) on 106th is REALLY going on my nerves. And not only that - "Ladyland" has avg. album rating 86 and avg. song rating 84, while The Zombies have avg album rating of 85, although their song rating is on 87. Wanna tell me something about consistency? The worst song on "Odessey" has 84, while worst songs here go bellow 80.
Eager to compare this one to "The White Album"? Better explain how it's better than "Astral Weeks" and "Odessey" first. Those 2 albums were true gems of '68. Innovative, pleasing and consistent, with not only amazing lyrics but great progressions and arrangements as well.
It's the best album of Exp because Jimi has grown up as a composer. There more insruments than on previous albums, lyrics are more different. I think it's a little underrated. Love Burning Of The Midnight Lamp and 1983 ... (A Merman I Should Turn To Be).
