I understand. I think. Are you a rock and roll junkie? Did you arrive at adulthood in the '80s with AC DC or Metallica or some such as the soundtrack? That would explain it. If you find this "depressing", it's possible you shrink from the interstellar greatness of movie soundtracks like Taxi Driver. What a loss.
Are you averse to bluesy jazz by the sounds of the instruments, or the images or emotions they evoke? You do know that jazz is the ONLY form or genre of art in whatever medium that is exclusively American? We the people invented or were first at virtually no other creative expression, and the inarguable best at almost nothing of anything. Jazz is the American joint, and Miles (albeit admittedly among many others) has been one of the leading lights.  Please expand your sensibilities. It's good for you.

Ho Hum. I do try, I really do, but I don't get it - a little light noodling but nothing that would make me turn my head if this was playing live in a bar or restaurant and if I had paid good money to see this. . . well, I'd be in the bar with Mrs Poacher. 

Sorry.

The only thing I've marked a "10" so far on the site.  Definitely one of the 10 albums I'd want on that desert island.

One of my favourite Albums of Miles, and every time I hear this it still amazes me of the way he plays, so effortless (if thats a word) as its the only way I can describe it, not blown but sort of puffed.

The only way to satisfy your desire to give such a transcendent piece its due is to reduce all of your other song ratings, reserving "10" for such as this. I tried to do exactly that once, and failed (alas!). The ratings kept creeping up on me again, as my sincere appreciation demanded I give some "extra" acknowledgement of (admittedly) lesser works.
I think perhaps it is just impossible to express the scope of my gratitude for a work such as this, and that is my true frustration. It is part of our human condition. The only real solace for this deep dissatisfaction is to create our own art, to offer the very best of ourselves to the world, or to at least one other person. Can it be any other way?
 
Alternatively, I'm going to increase all other songs to reserve a new low for the likes of this. WTF my ears!

Gateway jazz.  It is the first jazz album for an incredible number of people.  It may even have created more jazz fans than Louis Armstrong.

my favorite track from arguably the greatest jazz album of all time.  definitely among the top 25 greatest albums of all time from any time period or genre.  pure genius.

I recently read an article on NPR about the top 100 jazz songs of all time, and every track from "Kind of Blue" made the list.  The lowest ranked song from the album was No. 36.  It's most definitely one of the top albums of all time - of any genre.

I saw Miles at the Concord Pavilion about 1980.  He was very quiet and sort of rude.  Had his back to the audience most of the time.

I was just going to suggest following Jon Redfern with some Miles.  Redfern is good, but the difference is clear...Davis had it all.

Just in time to make me feel awesome. I've sat in front of small jazz trios and had this same sensation, you're a part of the whole.That's what Miles was trying to make happen.
