While Elvis's charisma adds a lot to the album, it can't hide its nature as series of covers sown together.

A spetacular debut album, from one of the icons that started the Rock N' Roll mania, although I don't recognize It as much for Elvis not being a composer.

A hotchpotch of newly recorded RCA tracks and some songs cut with Sam Phillips at Sun. It's full of fantastic vocal performances, these are the one's that make Elvis Presley one of the greatest and probably most important vocalists ever. Some excellent songs in, trying to get to you, and, blue suede shoes, but in truth, as an album it is incredibly uneven and inconsistent. Still, no one can argue with the importance of this significant collection of songs.

This is not his best album but it is definitely his most important. It introduced a whole new sound to kids that had never heard anything like it before. The main stream starting point to all the permeations of Rock to come.

This is the first rock 'n' roll album ever! They could've made it more rock 'n' roll though. That said, it's still brilliant listening.

There has been so much written about this music down through the years, I don't know if I have anything really original to add. What I do want to point out is how amazing the sound is. You know this stuff in your gut. Here's to a job very well done.
