A genius as a guitarist and as a songwriter. Electric Ladyland is the real Hendrix album, if you ask me. Are You Experienced? is overrated for it's influence, good as it is.

I thought BEA was only listing the original releases. Guess Are You Experienced? (US) should be merged into the UK version.

A lot of overrated guitar work, but he helped push music forward. His songs are also really good.
