Favourite '90s album?

Postby Worst Part's Almost Over on Sun May 04, 2008 8:19 pm

Any genre, any band or solo artist, the album from the 1990's that you love the most. And a little explanation as to why. That's pretty much it! I want to hear what you still treasure from that decade. And include an album cover to keep the thread looking pretty :D

My personal choice:

Image
Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness - The Smashing Pumpkins (1995)

This was one of the most important albums in the world to me during my teens, alongside The Holy Bible by Manic Street Preachers and Young, Gifted & Black by Nina Simone. Those 3 albums got me through puberty! It's not only an amazing record but it's also IMO the best double album ever recorded. No filler, just song after song of excellent quality. Nothing feels out of place on Mellon Collie, it all fits perfectly together. The artwork is sublime and the memories of the first time I heard it all the way through are still fresh in my mind every time I stick a track on now. A true classic.

10 Other Favourites (in no order):

Pinkerton - Weezer
The Holy Bible - Manic Street Preachers
The Soft Bulletin - The Flaming Lips
Where You Been - Dinosaur Jr
In Utero - Nirvana
Mezzanine - Massive Attack
Whatever and Ever, Amen - Ben Folds Five
Innuendo - Queen
Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters
Central Reservation - Beth Orton

Not exactly my favourite decade, but here goes, my top 10:

1)Lou Reed & John Cale - Songs For Drella
2) Pavement - Slanted & Enchanted
3) Nas - Illmatic
4) XTC - Apple Venus
5) Boredoms - Pop Tatari
6) Mr Bungle - Disco Volante
7) Nirvana - In Utero
8) Talk Talk - Laughing Stock
9) Scott Walker - Tilt
10) Stereolab - Emperor Tomato Ketchup

(My internet connection's fucking dire at the moment, so sorry for the ugly, album cover free post).

EDIT:

I think I could probably make 5 or 6 Top 10 lists for every decade of the last 60 years and still honestly not feel satisfied I'd covered enough of my favourites. (By the way, someone needs to make Favourite '70s and '60s album threads).

Yo La Tengo - Painful

Luna - Penthouse

My Bloody Valentine - Loveless

The Legendary Pink Dots - Crushed Velvet Apocalypse

Psychic TV - Trip Reset

Super Furry Animals - Radiator

John Zorn - The Circle Maker

Mark Hollis - Mark Hollis

Tricky - Maxinquaye

Bjork - Homogenic

That's okay! I just like pretty pictures :D

And a big thumbs up on In Utero - still sick of hearing 13 year olds declare Nevermind as the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I probably thought the same thing when I was 13. Nevermind, spots & chronic masturbation... Damn, it feels good to be grown up!

I wonder if Courtney Love will ever release a slightly rawer Nevermind...Naked. I'd probably buy it :oops: .

EDIT: I keep on thinking up new albums to add to the list. Maybe it was a pretty good decade after all.

Favourite 90's album?

Postby bastard_robo on Mon May 05, 2008 4:19 am

My #1 all time favorite band.. Version 2.0 was the first CD I ever Owned (still do) And I listened to both albums stupid!

Image

My cousin and I would come home from school, Play NINTENDO 64, usually Smash Bros, Golden Eye, or Turok Rage Wars to this album. We did this for a WHOLE FUCKING YEAR! Just about every day.

Image

This is the first album ever to have the honor of having every single track licensed for TV, MOVIES and Commercials. Its a fucking masterpiece! Lot of people hate Moby for some god awful reason, but I tell them to listen to this album and tell me that again.

Keeping in mind I'm gonna list what I can remember getting quite a bit of play either throughout junior high or high school and what-not...

Of course - it's also not considering the plethora of classic rock and 80's awesomeness that I would listen to as well...

Postby Fawst on Mon May 05, 2008 10:20 am

Oh, Jesus. This... is folly. I can't possibly list all the great albums to come out of the 90's!

Well, let's go with the obvious one first:

Cracked Rear View - Hootie & The Blowfish

Ok, that joke's over. Moving on to my real favorites, the absolute gems are at the top of the list, album covers to come later when I'm not at work:

Leitmotif - dredg (originally released in 1999, so it counts. And as far as I'm concerned, it's the best album of the decade. It's the one I'd listen to most out of anything else.)

Aenima - Tool (It takes the spot that Lateralus would occupy, had it come out in the 90s.)

Attack of the Grey Lantern / Six - Mansun (these two albums are equal in my mind, but in reality, Six is the better of the two)

In Loving Memory Of... - Big Wreck (amazing album, from start to finish. These guys got shafted hard by mainstream radio. It's really sad, as they were quite amazing.)

I Like To Score / Play - Moby (ILTS is fucking phenomenal. So is Play. Buy them.)

Semantic Spaces / Karma - Delerium (both are amazing. If you check out Karma, look for a copy with Koran as opposed to Window to Your Soul. It's a rarer version, due to licensing issues, and I feel a little weird grooving out to a new age electronica song with lyrics from the Quran, but... what are you gonna do?)

The Downward Spiral - NIN (Come on.)

Tranceport - Paul Oakenfold (Great trance mix.)

Tempest - Jesse Cook (this is an absolutely AMAZING album of flamenco guitar. Buy it. Now.)

Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From a Memory - Dream Theater (amazing, amazing, amazing.)

Liquid Tension Experiment - Liquid Tension Experiment (amazing, amazing, amazing.)

The Devil You Know - Econoline Crush (I shouldn't put this on the list of greatest 90's albums over some others, but it's the one I used to listen to the most back when I turned 20.)

Maybe later today after work I'll come back and basically just throw my entire catalogue up here, as the majority is from the 90's, and I only own masterpieces :)

Heh, can't see the images here at work. Ironically, hotlinking let's me see things, whereas hosted pics are blocked. I've never heard that one, I only ever had TDYK and the followup (which has maybe 2 good songs on it). Interesting side story regarding EC, I first heard them when they played a festival here in MA. I "overheard" them as I walked by, didn't actually watch the show. After, they did autographs, and my ex girlfriend had her shirt signed by everyone doing a signing. Which left her (quite ample) chest area bare, because, well, most people wouldn't go for the chest first. Not EC. They were like "Boobs?" "Go for it" *groping ensues*

The other fun story was that I won tickets to see them play in Boston with Skin Game and 2 Skinee J's (Jays? I forget). Had to stump the guy on the radio with movie trivia, I dropped the "Lance Henriksen was supposed to play the Terminator" nugget on him. He didn't believe me til he looked it up online. Go me.

Oh, and the second time I saw them, the aforementioned ex couldn't get in to the bar they played because she forgot her license. So me and two friends went in, and were part of a MASSIVE crowd of 30 people there for the show. Which sucked. The whole time, the singer just leaned down to all the hot chicks in the front row (really, there was barely even a second row, so he just leaned down to chicks in general) and flicked his tongue a lot. It sucked. So we booked out early.

Good ole Trevor Hurst...

He's from around the Winnipeg area...
Same place I'm at...

If you enjoyed some of their stuff - Affliction's worth checking out...
I enjoyed pretty much every song on there in it's own way...
And I thought they got the Industrial sound down pretty good at that point...

It's funny that you can't see the images - because without the images you had no idea I had posted something by EC...

I find it funnier cause it's not like they had too much American success...

They barely had any Canadian success save for a couple of years...

My three absolutely favourite 90's album are to my own surprise electronic and are:

1) Fatboy Slim - You've Come A Long Way, Baby
(I can't believe that this is already 10 years old and still holds up like on day 1!)

2) RMB - Widescreen
(For those of you who think that Trance is boring and unoriginal.)

3) The Chemical Brothers - Dig Your Own Hole
(Don't know what to say about it. It's just great.)

This is definately my absolute favourite from the 90's.

The funny thing is, I bought it from my first wage from a part time job, and didnt like it, so I took it back to the store, and cant remember what I swapped it for (Carter USM 101 Damnations maybe?).

I subsequently realised I was an ass, upon hearing it again.
Good thread, will have to have a good think about what else needs to go in.

Saint Etienne - Foxbase Alpha

As for the rest, some have been mentioned, some haven't - So Tough, Homework, DeLaSoul is Dead, Maxinquaye, Nowhere, Parklife, Leftism, Endtroducing, Blue lines, Dummy, Music FTJG, Sonic Temple, Liquid Swords, Loveless, Emperor Tomato Ketchup, OK Computer, Check Your Head, Goo, Screamadelica, Homogenic.


Some awesome music, dl as usual.

I wish I could say I listened to Saint Etienne in the 90s though but sadly this would not be true =/

A lot of people bitch about this one, mostly because it gets the most radio play, but its still one of their best albums..

Sad but True is my second favorite Metallica song next to FUEL!


Well, I don't want to start a Metallica debate in this thread, but Metallica's best albums were all released in the previous decade (see this thread). I personally would rate "Metallica" as their third or fourth best album.

Black was the first album I got into, but it's definitely not their best output.

I would also add that sadly "Metallica" was probably their last solid album... it's been all down hill from there. :(

The production quality on Metallica's albums is terrible and makes them sound very dated.
