|10 Favorite Albums Of The 90's|
My 10 favorite 90's albums both as i was growing up as a teenager, and now
|10||Rage Against the Machine|
Rage Against the Machine
Angry, powerful, and politically charged, Rage Against the Machine's debut
album sees the sweet of rapped lyrics, awesome riffs, and some
inventive guitar work from Tom Morello.
|9||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
After some time in rehab, a drug free Frusciante returned to the chili
peppers to take them in a new direction. Californication saw a melodic focus
combined with less rap and more singing: a huge departure from the ever
so funky Blood Sugar Sex Magik, although it wasn't a bad thing.
In my eyes, this is U2's magnum opus, not The Joshua Tree. A collection of
great songs, with, of course, the mega hit, "One"
I don't see why this album gets a lot of flak from Muse fans; in my opinion, it
didn't really get much better than this. The first two tracks are awesome,
and it stays consistently great throughout.
While Pablo Honey was a perfectly decent alt rock album, The Bends just
completely blows it away with some stadium sized riffs, personalized
lyrics and everyone's favorite girly falsetto from Thom Yorke.
Despite the fact that this album is absolutely overpraised, and hated for
being overpraised, I can't deny that I still love it. I don't think it's the
quintessential album like it's often made out to be, but that doesn't mean
it's not a really great album, because it is.
|4||The Smashing Pumpkins|
Corgan, with his unconventional songwriting, manages to launch the
pumpkins into alt rock stardom with the guitar driven Siamese Dream; look
no further than the ambitious "Disarm", the complex "Geek USA" and the
lush guitar riffs behind "Quiet", among others for justification of this.
|3||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
I've played this album an obscene amount of times, and it somehow always
seems to be fresh. Flea's funky bass playing and Frusciante's precise guitar
work in this album broke down a lot of walls, considering the music being
made during the time.
As the album that introduced me to grunge, Ten holds a lot of nostalgic
value for me, but it wouldn't be so high if it weren't also an outstanding
album, which it certainly is.
While this album receives a ridiculous amount of praise, it deserves every
bit of it. Something extraordinary, really
|grunge is fun to listen you when you're pissed. in other news, i listened to 2 several times today.|
|The 90s Sucked Dick|
|i can agree with that. i listened to it on the road driving back into town today, it was pretty sweet. and i love 90's music, but each to their own|
|Most of these albums are good ,if I were you ,instead of Showbiz and Nevermind I will add Dirt and The Downward Spiral|
|i have both of those albums, and while i like them, i couldn't really get into either, especially the downward spiral. maybe i'm just crazy, or i just need to give them more listens. probably both|
|Try before the dowward spiral works like the fragile or broken(they are more easy to get into and the fragile has more variety). |
|i definitely will when i get the time, from what i've heard, the fragile is a lot more accessible, and a lot of people that don't like the downward spiral still like it, so i'll definitely check it out soon|
|bro, if you can't get into dirt, you're a lost cause.|
|I definitely listened to a lot of these around the ages of 14-16|
|10 and 1. The rest no|
i like the fact that you acknowledge Nevermind's praise and admit that it's overpraised.
i personally think it's not very good and overrated, but i have a lot of respect for fans who can acknowledge things like that.
10 is an amazing album.
9,8 and 7 i've never heard.
6 is also excellent.
4 and 3 are cool.
2 is fun.
1 is also my favorite, and quite possibly my favorite album of all time.
i can't a single flaw with it, truly fantastic imo.
|The Bends > OK Computer|
|Also, good to see Ten above Nevermind|
|9,8,7, lol wtf. Rest decent list I supposed, even though theres minimal variety|
|the bends was my first radiohead album, and when i got ok computer, i was pretty skeptical about it, and wasn't quite sure it would match how awesome the bends was, but i was wrong. it really does deserve all the praise that it gets, it's mindblowing how good it is|
GTFO of here.
OK Computer >>> The Bends (which is something because The Bends rules)|
|agreed. ok computer is on a much different level than the bends, not really too comparable in my opinion, and i like it much more. but each to his own, eh|
|''The Bends > OK Computer''|
fuck yeah 2 havent heard that in a while...
