All Music Guide - Cub Koda
Jimi Hendrix's third and final album with the original Experience found him taking his funk and psychedelic sounds to the absolute limit. The result was not only one of the best rock albums of the era, but also Hendrix's original musical vision at its absolute apex. When revisionist rock critics refer to him as the maker of a generation's mightiest dope music, this is the album they're referring to. But Electric Ladyland is so much more than just background music for chemical intake. Kudos to engineer Eddie Kramer who supervised the remastering of the original two-track stereo masters for this 1997 reissue on MCA for taking Hendrix's visions of a soundscape behind his music ...

The result was not only one of the best rock albums of the era, but also Hendrix's original musical vision at its absolute apex. When revisionist rock critics refer to him as the maker of a generation's mightiest dope music, this is the album they're referring to. But Electric Ladyland is so much more than just background music for chemical intake. Kudos to engineer Eddie Kramer who supervised the remastering of the original two-track stereo masters for this 1997 reissue on MCA for taking Hendrix's visions of a soundscape behind his music and giving it all context, experimenting with odd mic techniques, echo, backward tape, flanging, and chorusing, all new techniques at the time, at least the way they're used here. What Hendrix sonically achieved on this record expanded the concept of what could be gotten out of a modern recording studio in much the same manner as Phil Spector had done a decade before with his Wall of Sound. As an album this influential and as far as influencing a generation of players and beyond, this was his ultimate statement for many, the highlights speak for themselves: "Crosstown Traffic," his reinterpretation of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," "Burning of the Midnight Lamp," the spacy "1983...A Merman I Should Turn to Be," and "Voodoo Chile Slight Return," a landmark in Hendrix's playing. With this double set now on one compact disc, Hendrix once again pushed the concept album to new horizons.

    The real Jimi experience.

    This is the ultimate collection of Hendrix although it is not a collection per se. It is an assortment of studio cuts as well as live studio performances that are classic and covered by everyone from Stevie Ray to John Mayer and Clapton. If you have other Hendrix C/D's (albums) and are missing this, your collection is very incomplete. He is joined by Stevie Winwood, Buddy Miles and other great musicians. A must have.

    The innovator in top form

    This is the Third Great Jimi album. It wasn't just the studio heads that wished Jimi would concentrate on making the next 'foxy lady' radio hit; the fans wanted it as well. Jimi was not a hit machine, he was an album maker and this, his finest album, was not what the studio or the fans really wanted. Jimi was a big enough star to get this album released even though it was very negatively criticized at the time. Being the innovator he was (both as an instrumentalist and as a conceptual artist) he knew he had made something special and that, in time, it would be seen as such. It certainly was (a lesson we should remember when listening to new artists). This album reflects the heights that Jimi reached for, and it hints at the ties that restricted him. This album is a work of art.

    Hendrix Rules!

    A classic double LP from the 60's era now remastered on CD! "1983" is a psychedelic/space rock masterpiece!

    The Greatest Album Ever? .....YES!!!!

    In all honesty, if I had only one album to listen to for the rest of my life, this would be it. Every song is amazing. Hendrix's lyrics are on another level above all else, not to mention his mastery of the electric guitar. And Mitch Mitchell knows his way around a drum kit. Noel Redding does some work as well. He was never a large part of "The Experience" anyways. If you don't own this album, shame on you.

    Not enough stars for this recording-A must have for any collection

    Electric Ladyland is the one album everyone must have in thier collection-period. It shows Jimi at his most creative best-unhampered by the influences of others that were controling his career at the time. This album was a definite turning point for Jimi Hendrix's direction in music. It explores areas in music and sounds that had never been heard before. I personally wore out 4 copies of this album (on vinyl) since it first came out and recommend it to anyone who wants to hear and own some "real" Hendrix.

    Jimi's crowning acheivement

    One of the greatest albums of all time (especially double albums on LP), and guitar albums too. Great jams, experimentation and invention, band performances, songwriting, sound engineering, and usually overlooked, lyrics ("1983... a Merman I Should Turn to Be" is a stunning example of just about all those things). A must-have for any Jimi Hendrix fan.

    Tune into this

    If you want to ''experience'' rock then buy this album. Miles ahead of anything made today (or yesterday). You can feel ''1983 (A merman I should turn to be)''. AWESOME!

    ELECTRIC HEAVEN!!!

    'Electric Ladyland' is Hendrix's own personal triumph. He recorded this album at a time when he felt the most uncensored. This album, although great, does not have the polished production sound as his masterpiece 'Are You Experienced', but it's still a great piece of music. And it's very worthy of your time and money.
