|My favourite 15 alternative albums released in 1993|
While many sees 1994 as the peak year of alternative music, as many classics such as NIN's The Downward Spiral and The Cranberries' No Need To Argue were released in that year, the year before also saw the release of many favourite alternative albums as well. Here are my favourite alternative albums that are turning/already turned 25 this year.
Shoegaze at its most harrowing, most beautiful, heavenly and one of its best, the best shoegazing album second only to Loveless.
Rid of Me
Ferocious indie rock that will never get rid of in your head once you listen to it.
Exile In Guyville
Sex, breakup, toxic relationship, rumours, a musical bible about entering into adulthood.
|4||The Smashing Pumpkins|
The chance of making such shoegaze-and-heavy metal-infused classic is less than the chance of appearing a siamese twin.
So Tonight That I Might See
Press play for the album, and you will only fade into this dream pop classic.
The brilliant last words from the grunge icon, it's grunge at its most abrasive and rawest.
A Storm in Heaven
Just like its title suggest, it is a musical storm in heaven, and it's the band's best.
Fumbling Towards Ecstasy
Alluring yet vulnerable, it is the musical equivalent to a bottle full of ecstasy that comforts you after various distraught.
Just like chrome metalwork, it is smooth, metallic and shiny, and it is one beautiful and brilliant shoegazing art-piece.
Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?
No one else can make something so powerful yet vulnerable, joyous yet somber, sweeping musical piece like this.
Cocky, sexy and protesting, a brilliant introduction of the band and Brit-pop to the world.
Brilliant trip-hop-infused debut album that introduces the ever shape-shifting Icelandic musical queen.
Guitar pop with synth melodies, it's the band's rawer and more brilliant effort.
Just because Kim Deal is a brilliant bass player, doesn't mean she's not a good guitarist, and Last Splash is the proof.
The Red Shoes
Not really her best, but it is definitely one of her most underrated album among her catalog.
|great list |
|'91, '94, '95, '96, '97 and '98 are all greater- but good enough list|
'In Utero' and 'Tindersticks' are my top 2 from '93
|Cranberries? Not a fuckin clue.|
| Well, that Cranberries' album is possibly the best among their catalog, and definitely the highlight of that year.|
|Red House Painters mangg|
|Good stuff but need Afghan Whigs- Gentleman|
| Thanks, but I'm not much of an Afghan Whigs fan.|
|I think you should do reviews for stuff like this after your emo revival series.|
