|Legacy Of A Decade Past|
Mm, so been checking out alot of 90s stuff recently (not all of it), but here a couple.
The Complete Discography 1993-1996
Hella awesome, this is just really really powerful and heavy early emo, Shotmaker kept it real without having to drive into fancy experimentation and odd sounds, this is a great collection of songs. Their Split with Maximillian Colby is totally ace as well.
|2||Portraits Of Past|
Dissapointing, but then, I wasn't expecting much after what I've heard from these guys. They got the sound of the 90s emo era, but not the power.
|3|| ||Eric's Trip|
Folky lo-fi in the vein of Guided By Voices and taking their name from a Sonic Youth Song, you can sorta really feel the 90s alternative scene pulsing from these guys.
Jagged Little Pill
We were at some bar and they played 'ironic' and I figured when I get home I might a well get the album. So I did. You probably know half of the songs off this if you were alive in the 90s.
|5||Taking Back Sunday|
Tell All Your Friends
Mmm, pop-punk, just good fun, good for a listen every once in a while, shaped alot of the genre along with Blink back in the day.
Water & Solutions
Imagine if The Promise Ring got really heavy. You'd probably end up with this album. Emotional Alt-rock, very typically 90s.
In the vein of bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden, Failure still manage to carve out a little niche with thier post-Hardcore roots, Failure's brand of Alt-rock is pretty cool, but dosn't stand the test of time.
For Your Own Special Sweetheart
Second best post-hardcore album on this list, Jawbox lie closer to bands like Nation of Ulysses than the more typical grungy sound of Hum and Failure, though not as unique.
Downward Is Heavenward
You'll see Hum called 'space-rock'. Maybe in their time yea, but it's long gone and in the wake of Post-Rock, Hum come off as alot more staright up alternative rock, only with dangly guitar lines to set them apart.
And We Washed Our Weapons In The Sea
It's good to hear a band do something different, and Frodus are one of those bands. There's just something unique about their sound, it's almost like a toned down Drive Like Jehu mixed in with Fugazi.
You wanna see the legacy of Kraftwerk, look no further, Covenant have got you covered. These guys are like the missing link between them and Orbital, before electronic music became synonamous will pill-popping. Sounds a bit dated, but a decent listen.
Acapella! Um, I dunno, this is a strange one for me, her music and a voice are pretty cool, but I'm really just not used to acapella.
|13||Maps And Atlases|
You and Me and the Mountain
Yeahyeah easy-listening math rock, its soild, I dunno if its up there with 2008s best though.
Your Favourite Weapon
I lurve Brand New, so it's cool to see where they're roots lie. Alot more pop-punk then their two latest albums, but you can see the beginnings of their present sound. Jude Law and a Semester Abroad is a hell of a song.
|15||Mindless Self Indulgence|
Frankenstein Girls Will...
Industrial Jungle Pussy Punk. At Least, that's what they call themselves. I'm gonna go with 'spastic'. Damn cool album.
