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.

Where would modern music be without Jimi's guitar? He was the best of his time, and he still holds up today. To boot, he was a great writer and singer as well. A phenom.
