Are You Experienced [LP]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
On Are You Experienced -- one of the most stunning debuts in rock history and one of the definitive albums of the psychedelic era -- Jimi Hendrix synthesized various elements of the cutting edge of 1967 rock into music that sounded both futuristic and rooted in the best traditions of rock, blues, pop, and soul. It was his mind-boggling guitar work, of course, that got most of the ink, building upon the experiments of British innovators like Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend to chart new sonic territories in feedback, distortion, and sheer volume.

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
On Are You Experienced -- one of the most stunning debuts in rock history and one of the definitive albums of the psychedelic era -- Jimi Hendrix synthesized various elements of the cutting edge of 1967 rock into music that sounded both futuristic and rooted in the best traditions of rock, blues, pop, and soul. It was his mind-boggling guitar work, of course, that got most of the ink, building upon the experiments of British innovators like Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend to chart new sonic territories in feedback, distortion, and sheer volume. It wouldn't have meant much, however, without his excellent material, whether psychedelic frenzy "Foxey Lady," "Manic Depression," "Purple Haze", instrumental freak-out jams "Third Stone from the Sun", blues "Red House," "Hey Joe", or tender, poetic compositions "The Wind Cries Mary" that demonstrated the breadth of his songwriting talents. Not to be underestimated were the contributions of drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding, who gave the music a rhythmic pulse that fused parts of rock and improvised jazz. Many of these songs are among Hendrix's very finest; it may be true that he would continue to develop at a rapid pace throughout the rest of his brief career, but he would never surpass his first LP in terms of consistently high quality. The British and American versions of the album differed substantially when they were initially released in 1967; MCA's 17-song CD reissue does everyone a favor by gathering all of the material from the two records in one place, adding a few B-sides from early singles as well. [A vinyl version of the reissue was also released.]
