The sensational sophomore release of The Jimi Hendrix Experience highlights Hendrix's own evolving musical experimentalism and acknowledges his early musical influences of soul and R&B.

Features the seminal classics "Spanish Castle Magic," "Little Wing," "Castles Made Of Sand," and the classic Easy Rider anthem, "If 6 Was 9." Gatefold sleeve and color booklet on 180 gram vinyl.

Hendrix's second album doesn't resonate through rock history the way its gatecrashing predecessor, Are You Experienced? did. In places, it almost seems as if Hendrix is cruising, albeit sublimely. Yet it's nonetheless a vital album, containing some of rock's most molten milestones. There's the fluid psychedelia of "Castles In The Sand", the viciously funky "Little Miss Lover", and the so-beautiful-it-hurts "Little Wing." Hendrix really hits altitude with "If 6 Was 9", where he waves his "freak flag high" over a tidal wave of guitar and cacophonous army of Moroccan flutes--and "Bold As Love", based around Hendrix's typically far- fetched hankering for the axis of the planet to be tilted, thereby transforming life on earth. It works up into a headmelting frenzy of distorted guitar, a precursor to the staggeringly expansive leap forward he would take with 1968's Electric Ladyland. Hendrix dreamed the impossible and achieved it on his guitar. --David Stubbs

Hendrix reentered the studio mere months after recording Are You Experienced? and began work on Axis: Bold As Love. For many artists, recording a successful follow-up album to a hit is a difficult, indeed in some cases impossible, endeavor which often takes years of laboring over new material, but such was not the case for the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Hendrix's writing is much tighter and his music much more accessible. Some of his more extravagent and indulgent impulses (like Third Stone From the Sun) appear to have been tamed, and Hendrix seems to be trying to appeal to a more pop oriented audience. Indeed, you will only find two songs on the album which exceed the three minute radio barrier of the day. Chas Chandler's influence as creative consultant, manager, and producer is quite pronounced in this regard, and subsequently, Axis: Bold As Love is less raw than Are You Experienced, MUCH more accessible than Electric Ladyland, and not even in the same ballpark with Band of Gypsys.
Yeah, it's not the most memorable material Hendrix ever produced, but it's still extremely good. It's a terrible way to familiarize yourself with Hendrix's body of work if you're a Hendrix novice, but for the music lover and Hendrix fan, Axis: Bold As Love is an essential album, a must own, without a doubt.

OK, so we have Are You Experienced, Axis, and Electric Ladyland. These are the edifices of recorded Rock. We all want to get as close to this kind of magic in one way or another--be it actually making the music or simply being near it in some way. What would life be without Hendrix? Buy this CD, nuture it, preserve it, and appreciate it in moderation as you would any good thing in life and it will never cease to bring you joy.

Axis was originally released in 1968 and is the second of the three studio albums released in Hendrix's lifetime. For my money Axis is the Experience at their peak. Its better recorded than the debut "Are You Experienced?". The drums sound MUCH better and the guitar much more alive and richer in tone. And Axis is less rambling, more focused and less broad in scope than "Electric Ladyland". The songs flow better than either of the other studio albums and both the recording and song writing are more consistant. Not neccessarily better. Its just that Axis is more unified in sound than Hendrix's other studio output. It's his tightest and most psychedelic album. Jimi and his engineer Eddie Kramer really got some facinating sounds in the studio and used phasing among other tricks to great effect. Just check out the track list: Its got the live staple "Spanish Castle Magic", its got "Little Wing", its got "If Six Was Nine" "Im gonna wave my freak flag HIGH!" Its got the jazzy soul of "Up From the Skies" and the metal edged funk of "Aint No Telling" to the acid tinged 4 minute pop symphony of the title song "Bold As Love." Not to mention the beautiful Dylanesque rocker "Castles Made Of Sand." It doesn't get any better than this. One of the true psychedelic albums of the sixties. Just Beautiful.

Axis Bold As Love remains as Hendrix's most fluential albums of all time. It was all acheived on a small four track recording system. This album was way ahead its time I personally think most artist now days could not even achieve what Jimi did some 30+ years ago. This album is a true classic in its shape, age, and form. While The Jimi Hendrix Experience were recording their first album Are You Experienced they where also working out songs for there next album Axis Bold As Love. Its hard to even believe hendrix had only four short years for four albums that were all masterpieces.
The start of the album goes into a little renedition titled EXP mostly space sounds. Then their's Up From The Skies very cool. Then my all time favorite Spanish Castle Magic. I also love Castle Made Of Sand, Bold As Love, and Aint No Telling. Also their are classics like If 6 was 9, and Little Wing. 30+ years I listen to Jimi Hendrix and still cant get over his music. He will always remain as the best guitarist, and also one of the best song writers. I still admire Jimi Hendrix. Axis Bold As Love is the real deal for any music fan buy this~Highly Recomened!!!!!!

First of all, that Fred Durst fan is an idiot but from reading his other reviews its obvious that he's goofing on everyone (he said that Alice In Chains is a third rate Puddle Of Mudd rip-off and that Tom DeLonge gives Joe Satriani a run for his money).
Now to my review. After his debut album 'Are You Experienced?' reached number two and rewrote the rules of rock guitar, Jimi Hendrix had a lot to live up to on his sophomore effort. But thankfully, 'Axis: Bold As Love', does not disappoint. Jimi's R&B influence is much more prominent here, especially on tracks like 'Castles Made Of Sand', 'Wait Until Tomorrow', and the beautiful 'Little Wing'. But don't let that lead you to believe that his playing isn't just as great as on the Experience's first album. He rips through one of his best solos in 'Bold As Love'. 'If Six Was Nine' is one of Jimi's better psychedelic experiments as is the funky 'Up From The Skies'. It is obvious to the listener that his personal songwriting is continually growing and the aforementioned 'Little Wing' is probably his most heartfelt and touching song. After this 'Axis' Jimi would release 'Electric Ladyland' which would take psychedelic guitar farther than anyone would ever imagine.
