Are You Experienced?

( 11 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
One of the most stunning debuts in rock history, and one of the definitive albums of the psychedelic era. On Are You Experienced?, 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 ...

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 reissue did 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.]

    The meteor that was Jimi: Treasure every note

    This is the first Jimi Hendrix album. He only lived long enough to release three albums, although his forth was well into production. Jimi, if you don't know by now, was the greatest Rock N Roll guitarist who ever lived. His playing was so ahead of its time that only now is the music world catching up to him. The four you ought to have are these: 1) Are you experienced, 2) Axis Bold as Love, 3) Electric Ladyland, and 4) First Rays of the New Rising Sun (which is the best reproduction of his unfinished album). These are the minimum required for a decent Rock collection.

    Hendrix's Rules!

    An amazing debut! One of the best from the 60's! "May This Be Love" is one of the album's most underrated songs!

    The Best, because it was the first

    Probably because this was the first Hendrix release in the US, and because I was 12 years old when I purchased it, I have an affinity for this album more than his later works, even though I must admit, his later works are better. This is Jimi at his rawest...no overdubs, no effects, no over mixing or creative studio enviornments. Just solid, pure, hard R&R. Every song is a gem. A must have for any record collection, and personally still my favorite of all his work.

    Amazing Debut Album

    Possibly the best album of rock history. Personally I prefer his later music and the direction he was taking musically before he died. But, you can't not like this album, especially with the additional tracks that weren't on the LP.

    Classic Greatness

    Third Stone From the Sun and May This Be Love are the best songs on this album if you truly appreciate his music. Purple Haze and Hey Joe helped put Jimi on the map, but true Hendrix fans dig deeper to find the real gems. What a great musician!!!

    Legends never die...

    You know how they say Legends never Die, well, with this album, it's true. Jimi is the greatest guitarist to ever live. All of these songs are awesome. He has never done a bad song. No one will ever live up to Jimi Hendrix.

    THE ALBUM TO OWN!!!!!!!!!

    This metal explosion is almost a greatest hits album. This Hendrix album is the total package. All familiar classics are here, and, in tact. ''Hey Joe'', ''Purple Haze'', ''Manic Depression'', ''Foxey lady'', ''The wind cries mary'', WOW, on one album. Hendrix set himself apart from other strummers on this goldmine of musical genius. If you don't own this one yet, ssshhh, don't tell anyone to avoid embarassment. GET IT!!!!
