Even though most consider it weak., this is my personal favorite Hendrix album. Pretty trippy, normal for 1967. A ton of good songs, the title track being my favorite.

Highlights- Little Wing, If 6 Was 9, Castles Made of Sand, Bold As Love

Definitely my favorite Jimi album, this one is definitely overlooked sometimes. There isn't a bad track on this album, my favorites are: Spanish Castle Magic, Little Wing, and She's So Fine

"Experience" has the hits. "Ladyland" has the guitar work. "Cry of Love" has some great tunes. But "Axis" has great songwriting. Some of the best Jimi had done in his lifetime.

And "Little Wing". Can't go wrong with "Little Wing".

I like this album,the quality of the songs are good apart from track one, which is a bit of fun. It is not has good has his two other studio albums, because it lacks one or two great rock songs.

The superb follow up to, are you experienced, axis:bold as love, is another classic record from the Jimi Hendrix Experience. There's more psychedelic rock and even hints of jazz on the beautiful second track, up from the skies. Other highlights include, Spanish castle magic, little wing, and, bold as love. The opening cut, ESP, seems a little corny to modern ears but the rest is stunning genius. Superb.

His most underrated album. Not necessary his best album, but definetly most consistent. It's somehow more "elegant" and interesthing than Are you expirienced. I can understand why is considered his weakest album, but surely it isn't "the 9th best" album of 1967. At least it could be 5th or 6th best album of 1967.
