From xhitmanx
The weakest Jimi Hendrix Experience album, but still good. Easy listen from start to finish, all the songs are good aside from EXP which isn't really a song.

From phopwood
The work Eddie Kramer did with Jimi Hendrix on the "Are you Experienced" and "Axis:Bold as Love" albums is ground breaking. The left to right paning on EXP, the extreme tone manipulation which would become the wah peddle and the advent of phase shifting which would become very popular with guitar players in the years to follow.

Oh, that "Little Wing", "Castles Made of Sand" and "Bold as Love" trio most be the perfect example of what guitar should sound.

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".
