Great album, Jimi's guitar work was just as good as his first two albums, but when it comes to Jimi I prefer Axis.

Probably no other album gets me more filled with energy and emotion than this one. This is Jimi's best work, and honestly her be one of my favorite artists if this album was his entire catalogue (plus bold as love). It's really a crime that this isn't WAAAYY higher on the list, and that AYE is so high in comparison.

Last year I totaled my car and had to buy a used one with a tape deck. I walked into a resale shop and spent the first actual money I spent on music in around 10-13 years ($8) to buy this album on cassette and played it nonstop the entire summer. Can't praise this album enough. Jimi really left too soon.

sprawling, but wonderful and engaging every step of the way. While jimi's guitar work was already godly on his previous albums, he trancends the instrument on this album. Listening to Voodoo Child (Slight Return) and All Along the Watchtower, you can tell that this is not a man playing guitar, this is a man chanelling something older than words from some deep within himself. The guitar is just a tool to convey it

I haven't listened to this enough to be sure, but this could really be Jimi's best. So ambitious and yet wonderfully executed, Jimi was completely free to follow his vision and gave us this eclectic masterpiece.

this album is a very good (almost disorienting) fusion of blues, rock, funk, soul, psychedelia and jazz. Fantastic album

From chivocosmico 11/28/2016 19:10
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:

80/100
Good stuff!

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.
