Rec me albums from these years (pt. 1) 06/92/86

seeing my ratings from every year, though i have listened to a lot of music from a lot of different years, there are ones i'm draggin on, be it lack of interest or misinformation. Rec me albums from these years, i'll listen to them eventually (maybe).
1The Format
Dog Problems


this one is nice. from 2006
2Godflesh
Pure


great Godflesh album. from 1992
3Cocteau Twins
Victorialand


Still their best, imo. from 1986
4John Larkin
John Larkin


MarsKid
eh... i mean, it's aight... Didn't do much for me honestly and tbh the voice is kinda ugly, i don't like it.
3/5
5Owen
At Home With Owen


Trebor.

pass/5
6Red House Painters
Down Colorful Hill


Trebor.
Get this sadboi shit outta my face.
Nah/5
7Paul Simon
Graceland


Trebor.
This is great. Love the strong african influence in this, but mostly love its atmosphere. Takes me somewhere warm and with sea breeze.
4/5
8Scott Walker
The Drift


butcherboy
UGH. I mean, i'm all for crazy wacko music, but Scott's voice is just. Ugly. Just can't stand a whole album of this, sorry bro.
Pass/5
9Pavement
Slanted and Enchanted


butcherboy
10The The
Infected


butcherboy
The first half of this is amazing, but i feel it loses steam by the 2nd half. Last 2 tracks are miles away from the first 2 tracks.
3.5/5
11Arthur Russell
World of Echo


Twig
There are moments of real beauty here, like a Nick Drake song heard in a dream... Other times, it's a chore to get through. Goes to show how a simple formula can weild both immaculate and underwhelming results at the same time.
3/5
12Catherine Wheel
Ferment


Twig
Shoegaze is a genre that's hardly done right, imo. Most bands i've heard tend to favor over-saturating their sound with stupid effects and reverbs to mask average/dull song-writing instead of actually trying to build a deep, complex soundscape. It's a genre that lives and dies by its capacity to pull the listener into its trance. This does it, at times better than others. Overall, fun listen.
3.5/5
13BT
This Binary Universe


Twig
14Breathless
The Glass Bead Game


Sandwich
this is really good! how does this not get more love here?
4/5
15Current 93
Thunder Perfect Mind


Sandwich
I mean, this is interesting and all but... I ain't sitting through 78 minutes of this.
I give up/5
16Akron/Family
Meek Warrior


Sandwich
17Sun City Girls
Grotto of Miracles


Chorts
eh. I didn't hate it and i guess on another day i might have enjoyed this more. Maybe i'll give it a 2nd go in a couple weeks.
3/5
18Polvo
Cor-Crane Secret


Chorts
meh. not my kind of thing. 2.5/5
19Trentemoller
The Last Resort


Chorts
it's pleasant enough, but it's not blowing me away or anything... Some of the production here is top notch, but at times it feels like it hasn't aged that well, tbh.
3/5
20Depeche Mode
Black Celebration


Onions
i love how horny DM always sound lol... they give that sweaty, Sn'M vibe without going full-on creepazoid. Some of the sounds here feel a little outdated, but luckly the solid songwriting manages to shine through most of the times.
3.5/5
21The Cure
Wish


Onions
I always respected The Cure as a band, they have a distinct sound that goes beyond the basic goth rock aesthetic and also build their best songs with a pop sensibility that's unmatched. Problem is i largely ignored most of their discog, not out of spite, but for a lack of interest. I should listen to more the cure, this is a great album.
3.5/5
22The Lawrence Arms
Oh! Calcutta!


Onions
Uhmmm... I hate the vox on this really bad. And the songs themelves aren't good enough to compensate.
1.5/5
23Ministry
Psalm 69


teamster
14 yo me would've gotten his little head blown off by this, but now... Eh, i crave for heavier stuff, and the songwriting and riffing kinda doesn't make up for the the half-baked agression.
Pass/5
24Fates Warning
Awaken the Guardian


teamster
25Agalloch
Ashes Against the Grain


teamster
Agalloch makes music with a good sense for expectative and timing that makes for amazing, epic moments. Too bad the album peaks too soon. 1st track is easily the best.
3.5/5
26Emancipator
Soon It Will Be Cold Enough


Sinternet
this threads the needle between 'subtle' and 'anodyne' a little too hard at times... It IS beautiful, but a beauty that needed more contrast, maybe. 'Lionheart' and 'With Rainy Eyes' are both amazing tracks, tho.
3/5
27warning
Watching from a Distance


Sinternet
28Squarepusher
Hello Everything


Sinternet
this is very all over the place. It's equals part 'ecclectic' as it is 'scattered brained'. I like the playful tone, but overall there's just too much shit that doesn't work and tbh i don't like it.
2/5
29Phoenix
It's Never Been Like That


granitenotebook
I like this. Phoenix is a good band and this is a good record. Wish i had something more to say other than... It's adequate, it's good, it does the gud.
3/5
30Univers Zero
Heatwave


gagnonov
nah, this is boring. the circus-like feel of it just turns me off. FUCK CIRCUS MUSIC.
2.5/5
31Aspid
Extravasation


gagnonov
This one riffs! A little too on the prog spectrum for my taste, but never drags.
Russian is a funny language.
3.5/5
32Dolorian
Voidwards


gagnonov
solid doom. Nice atmosphere, the black metal and post-rock dashes work wonders to make this a lot more interesting.
3.5/5
33Katatonia
The Great Cold Distance


Dewin
Never listened to Katatonia before. Now I now why, not my jam at all lol.
Pass/5
34Kyuss
Blues for the Red Sun


Dewin
woah this rules! bad-ass record
4/5
35Iron Maiden
Somewhere in Time


Dewin
I expected to hate this but nah, it's just... decent. I get why people like this, but for this kind of rock-metal sound i'd rather it be full-on exuberant, oiled-up viking SM power-fantasy. This is half-way, imo.
2.5/5
36The Roots
Game Theory


masochist
damn this slaps... Production specially. The Roots are classic, I should check their other stuff, too.
4/5
37Sunshine Has Blown
Sunshine Has Blown


HugEmoji
U'know what this is pretty fucking engaging for a EAI album... It's never overbearing, nor does it indulge in whacky far-out psychedelia, on the contrary it's quite inviting and quiet, subtle, haunting and kinda beautiful, too!
4/5
38Morton Feldman
For Philip Guston


HugEmoji
disqualified. This is from 1984, you dingus... I'll still check it, tho cuz it seems interesting.
Sach-core/5
39Venom P. Stinger
Meet My Friend Venom


HugEmoji
This is pretty good, actually. I like the energy and instrumentation. The noise elements don't work as well, tho and the voice is meh. The cover art is dope, tho. Black, White and Yellow. Simple but bold!
3.5/5
40Chainsaw Kittens
Flipped Out In Singapore


LeftyMcRighty
Eh, solid enough rock... it got boring mid-way through, but it's got a couple of good tunes.
2.5/5
41Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
The Letting Go


LeftyMcRighty
42Manicured Noise
Northern Stories 1978/80


PapaUni
43Manic Street Preachers
Generation Terrorists


PapaUni
pros: i like the glam-metal/pop-rock vibe, it's a fun album, but with a nodge of higher quality in song-writing.
cons: Too long, mainly. Also, it kinda takes a while to pick up steam. Motorcycle emptiness feels like it should've been the 1st track.
3.5/5
44A Primary Industry
Ultramarine


PapaUni
45deftones
Saturday Night Wrist
