Time To Get Manly 52: Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsys

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsys

No list of "must own" men's albums would be complete without Jimi Hendrix. I get that. I mean, the man's considered the greatest guitar player of all time. Every man wants to be able to play guitar like that or at least be able to play pretend guitar like that. And there's more guitar noodling on Band of Gypsys than you can shake a plastic Rock Band guitar at. Not to speak ill of the legendarily dead, but I personally find this much wankery exhausting. I want to take a nap now.

Weird again. I think Electric Ladyland is the standard choice and Axis Bold is Love is the more daring choice and Are You Experienced? is what everyone would choose if they just admitted to themselves that the most popular probably was the best.

His albums are also mixed weird.
